Default Magic: the Gathering Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013

Magic: the Gathering Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 is said to be making its way to the iPad this summer!

There's a few reports out in the open but here's a read straight from TA:

It gives you pre-built decks, holds your hand if you aren't familiar with the rules
Interesting only for a new comers.

I wasn't impressed by this game at PC and don't think at iPad will be better. Ai was a really stupid. Interesting to play only against player, but cards was so limited...

Well I'm down with it, whatever form it is.aybe not that price tag though lol. I didn't think the pc/Xbox version was as bad as made out. I got some good enjoyment out of it. I know there's no deck building or it's very minor tweaks but it's a start. At least this game is coming to ios. It's basically only the biggest TCG out so at least it's finally coming across in some form.

Some things I'd wish for:
Please bring it to iPhone as well
Yep, deck building please, and an auction house. Unleash the real potential.

AI is not that stupid and I enjoy DOTP 2012 quite a bit. I've been playing M:tG at various times for almost 20 years. It's an excellent way to get a Magic fix when no one else is around.

Ummm, the PC version is $9.99 so what makes you thing it will be $19.99?

At the moment you can get the Gold bundle on Steam with the base game, the expansion and 3 deck packs for $19.99.

I've been meaning to get into Magic for years, I tried the original Duels of the Planeswalkers for 360 and liked it but I found that playing it on a console seemed restrictive and didn't buy it. I can't wait for this to be released, I think the iPad is going to a perfect form factor for it.

In relation to it being designed primarily for noobs, didn't DOP 2012 introduce the ability to customise your deck or something?

And while we're here, my totally inconceivable wish, release an iPhone companion app that allows 2 people to play with the iPad as the game board, finally put that functionality to good use.

I really hope it is going to be Async, instead of just live play.

Just like Assassin's Creed, I won't play it otherwise.

Still can't decide whether I should stick with boosters for now or just buy singles.
