Minor request: edit text in card hyperlink

TappedOut forum

Something I've been wanting since I started to use the site is to be able to link to a card name using the standard method inside double square brackets, but instead, to be able to have the link text be whatever we want, as in other sites like Wikipedia. Eg something like

Card Name|Actual Text that gets Linked

I read the site formating guide AND the other off-site guide about the markup but after attempting lots of things, I couldn't get anything like it to work. It seemed like it should be possible but not sure the card-hover code here supports it. But if I've missed something, I'd love to know!

Usually when mentioning cards, especially for the nth time in our deck guide, or in a forum post, it's better to shorten the name of the card, and it also just improves readability to be able to say something like 'It's good if you can play out your Swiftspear on turn 1' rather than spelling the card out every time.

Also I'm sure everyone has shorthand and nicknames that they'd rather use to refer to cards - eg Baby Chandra is included in a lot of decks I've been building recently, but I'm not going to spell out Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip again after the first time!


I mean, technically, you can do this with inspect element. But's it's extremely tedious, so I do think a new way to do this would be great.

Wow, you're a wizard :) Very cool. But yes, would be nice to have it 'on a stick', too.
