    While you continue waiting patiently to tear open your virtual booster packs
    There's booster drafting now!?? (I can't see the video at work). Or just sealed deck?

    I don't know if it extends beyond the campaign, but yes there's a sealed deck mode. You go through the standard booster draft, and play through the campaign with your deck.

    You mean we can finally build our own decks? That's just something I've wanted since I made the transition to playing digitally. Ohhhh so exciting. Not to mention busting out booster packs. This looks like it is finally the MtG we've been waiting for.

    Yeah, it might be too late for me. I have the original and 2013, but 2013 didn't keep my attention for long, Now I worry if a deck editor is enough to have me try it again.

    I'm pretty sure they confirmed it isn't. You just pick you cards at the beginning and play through the sealed campaign. If they have it for multiplayer, I'd guess you would build a deck with new boosters before each game (and those decks may or may not be permanent. Maybe a limited number)

    -face palm- i highly doubt that would be true seeing as the only paid digitally card packs for magic have a set rule that if you get all the cards in a set you can trade them in for physical copies. And seeing as an arcade game is no where near having even all the cards in a single set i doubt there will be any other then deck keys as they've had before.

    Odd you have no release date.....Joystiq does.
    XBOX ONE....the new console that plays YOU instead of you playing it!

    Because Joystiq's is a PC release date based on a store page. For a company that has had games delayed from it's initially given date in the past. Yes it's unlikely (OK, borderline impossible probably), that the 360 version won't be out on that same June 26th release date. Very rarely (or ever?) though does TA post things like that without a confirmation.

    Heck yes! I will certainly be buying this!
    I remember when I was a Nintendo gamer... I really should get back to that.

    From the sounds of it, you have not tried out Magic Online? I mean, you mention "Since I made the transition to playing digitally." You can buy boosters, trade with other players, compete in DCI sanctioned tournaments, all online. Found that OMG card that you want in real life? You can trade in the 'digital' version and wizard will ship you a real version of the card.

    That only applies to complete sets I believe. And they have to be full-foil sets, or 100% non-foil sets. And only the last 2 or 3 blocks laugh.

    I played the computer one for a while. I never got lucky enough to get enough cards in order to get the real card. I have a large collection of cards but nobody to play with.

    Yeah, Same thing here.

    But on topic, looking forward to this version because of the Seal Deck mode. Don't know how far they will "let you build your own deck", but I'm hoping. Previous titles said you could build your own deck, but all that was adding and removing certain cards, not actually building your deck with cards you wanted. Seal deck mode shows promise though. We'll see when it releases for XBLA.
