Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers
was a hit, Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012
was the 2011 TA Card and Board Game of the Year. Like clockwork, we have another edition, creatively titled Magic: The Gathering Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013
arriving this summer. So, what will this new edition entail?
Much like last year's edition which added the Archenemy format, M:TG Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013
will also be adding a wild new multiplayer format: Planechase. Based off of this summer's upcoming Planechase
expansion, this new multiplayer format is just like a standard game of Magic
, except that players, once a round, flip over a large Planechase card which represents a new battleground. These Planechase cards have different effects on the game, such as doubling the number of tokens in play, letting everyone draw a card, all damage is doubled, etc.
Here's an example from the original Planechase
expansion for the physical card game:
We can only hope that this summer, we'll be doing battle with Goat tokens.
