Many years ago, I read an article on InQuest Magazine describing rules to play Legend of the Five Rings with Magic: The Gathering cards. Years later, in college, I played LOT5R and realized it had little to with what I took from that experience, although that altered version of MTG was fun in itself.
Another alternative game I usually play with my friends only uses basic lands in a single deck and each land has a special ability. The goal is to get all 5 different basic types into play.
Are there any different card games that can be played with Magic: The Gathering cards?
Note that I'm not asking for game variations like EDH or Archenemy. I'm asking for different card games (not necessarily published) that can be played using MTG cards.
