So a friend has a really cool and fairly old Marvel RPG that runs off of a deck of cards(not playing cards like Deliria but a specialized deck just for it). I am trying to find out what it is called. I would love to consider picking up a set myself if I can find out any details from it. (Specifically its name).

It seems strange that your friend would have a copy of the game but couldn't find out the title of the game and tell you, however a simple Wikipedia search from the page of Marvel Comics showed me this game called Marvel Super Heroes Adventure Game (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_Super_Heroes_Adventure_Game) which apparently includes a deck of 96 cards specific to it, so it might be that one. It's from 1998, so "pretty old" isn't entirely unfitting, at least in terms of RPGs.

It uses a variant on the SAGA system that powered Dragonlance, and actually inspired my ODE (in my sig).

I keep forgetting to ask. He has never shown us the rules (we honestly have never needed them) so I had nothing to remember. I find it funny that I tried for hours to find it and you find it quickly. Thanks by the way!
