CCG Card Search
http://daccg.com/ccgsearch.php
The following fields do exact match: mana cost, cmc, power, toughness, loyalty
Color is inclusive (will find gold cards).
The rule field accepts these wildcards:
Percentage (%) wildcard allows you to match any string of zero or more characters.
Underscore (_) allows you to match any single character.
Hover over keywords to display its rules in this box.

API

Fields are cardname, color, cost, cmc, supertype, cardtype, subtype, rule, power, toughness, loyalty.
Entire cards are returned as array of JSON objects, except cardname and cardtype are returned as name and type, respectively. (see ccgsearch.js for example of how to extract these objects)

Can retrieve rules using 'keyword' field.
