I have seen that there is a special tag supported in the markup for Magic the Gathering [mtg...], but it's not documented in:


1) What is the full description of that feature? (Based on this question: Can the Magic card auto link feature be improved?, it looks like this feature has been changing.)

2) Are there other markdown mods that aren't in the documentation?

When you include [mtg:Card Name], it is equivalent to writing [Card Name](http://www.wizards.com/magic/autocard.asp?name=Card%20Name). That means that it creates a link, where the link text is the name of the card, and it links to the gatherer entry for that card. It is important to note that due to a gatherer bug, a card with an apostrophe (such as Acolyte's Reward) in its name cannot be properly linked this way.

There is also apparently a special syntax for Go boards.

Can we add some information about those special markdowns (which I assume are specific only to Boardgames SE) to help pages?
I only found out about this feature from some random comment.

I think it is worth adding an answer here, that this syntax is documented on the documentation page for the Magic the Gathering Tag.
