Cool, only a little depressed by the ol' diminishing returns here.

We just recently got 5 decks for $4.99, now, if grabbing all 3 sets, it will be 6 for $8.97?

The later expansion deck packs were similarly priced for Duels 2012 as well. I think the idea is that these are advanced decks that are likely to see fewer purchases than for the core decks and the initial expansion, although I'm not sure if there's any truth to that.

All the more reason I'd assume they'd charge less than $2.99/2 decks when the fervor for Magic 2013 has died down a bit at this point.

I wish there was an option to increase the size of cards in your hand. I can't even read the titles of cards when playing on my iPad mini. I don't expect to be able to read the descriptive text. But a readable title would be very convenient. Too much double tapping as it is.

Do the devs read this thread? Where is the best place to submit a request?

Not quite. Your Elo score almost always goes up when you win a game, even if your opponent has a lower Elo score. But it goes up more slowly than winning against a higher ranked opponent.

When you lose a game, your Elo score goes down by the same amount that your opponent's score goes up. So you are basically "betting" some of your Elo points with your opponent, using odds that depend on your relative scores.

Is unlocking cards tied to your account or your iPad? If I upgrade iPad will I have to start all over again?

It is supposedly tied to your GC account so it should easily carry over to a new system BUT I'm not sure how that works if you were last playing offline and therefore had no way to update your online GC profile.

Ranking is tied to GC but not campaign progress. You will have to unlock all the cards again.

Unless you are restoring saved data uploaded to iCloud. I don't know if that's possible going from iPad 3 to 4, or from 3 to Mini.
