We know you're a Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers
fan; that's why you have already watched the trailer
, and now you are ready to find out how the sealed deck system will work in Magic The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014
In the event you are at work, and there are prying eyes everywhere, here is the rundown: The sealed deck format will work the same way it does for the real-world variant of Magic: The Gathering
; players are given six sealed packs containing 14 cards each to start with, but they don't know which cards they will contain. When they open the packs, players can pick up to 40 cards from this pool to play with, based on what they think will be effective. As they progress through the campaign, players can obtain a further three booster packs to add to their card pool.
The deck editor makes it easy to completely customize the exact composition of your deck, which differs from previous Duels of the Planeswalkers
games in which decks were largely prefabricated. Decks can be named for easy reference, and can be used in the single player campaign, as well as in online duels.
However, the coolest feature of the new deck editor is the ability to automatically generate a deck based on a favorite card, or series of cards, that you like to play with. This ensures your deck is rounded out with complimentary cards and just the right number of land cards. Nobody want's to experience mana burn, after all.
In regards to the campaign itself, you will face off against five enemy decks, each representing one of the five colors in the Magic universe; i.e. red, green, blue, white and black.Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014
will cast a spell on the XBLA marketplace this Summer.
