Atheist Magic: the Gathering set

It’s Memorial Day weekend and I’m trying my damndest to have work/life separation.  This means no raging out at religion.  Instead, there will be desperate attempts to cram as much fun into three days as possible!

A lot of people liked the MTG cards I put into yesterday’s post, so today I’m going to start making an atheism MTG set, hopefully with the help of Dr. David Burger.  There will be about 250 cards to the set.  Once created, we will export them to Magic Workstation and I will attempt to organize some online drafts via the blog.  Would this interest any of you MTG nerds out there?

So what cards do you want to see and what ideas do you have?

Shall we have two distinct creature types: diplomats and firebrands?  Who should be enshrined in card format?  What should Dawkins’ card look like?
Also, while the set will have about 250 cards, there will undoubtedly be token-producers because, for realz, the atheist movement is getting huge!  If you’d like a token cards with your visage on it, leave a link to a pic in the comments.
