I didn't actually know anyone was doing this already. I think that if it's only run once a month, iterating over all appropriate card pages (I think you'd only have to check CT2 transclusions, which is still less than 10k pages) wouldn't be prohibitive, though I don't know that it holds when you up the run frequency to every couple of weeks.
Just be aware that as a followup to this, I want a similar thing done for card number redirects, and both tasks will have to be rerun on occasion (probably just once a year or so would be more than enough).
People can ping me whenever they spotted red linked card numbers. I have a script to create them. To spot them, it's possible, but, off the top of my head, it's trickier and will take too long iterating over everything (we could try to store what has been checked, but pages change...).
I do try to keep track of stuff every two weeks or so; I check newer sets and releases to be sure their cards' card numbers are updated. That could also be automatized, I guess.
I can probably write a script to check all of that. Just need to find the time.
