much better than magic 2015. magic 2015 might have full blown deck building, but you may only have one mythic rare in a deck of a card. magic 2015 is too regulated.

magic 2014 has 2 headed giant. that is the most popular online gameplay style. i have at this post over 700 hours put in this game. the games can take as long as LoL games to play.

if you are looking to start to play MTG, i recommend magic 2014 only.

one downside is playing with bounce and boon with mul daya. simply because there is no way to shorten the life counting. drop the avenger card you might as well have dinner while that is going on.

do everyone a favor and TURN OFF DAMAGE EFFECTS. that delays the game as well.

I have never played Magic the card game, nor any of the inspired video games. I've always had some interest in it, but the cost of getting the cards and having to learn how to actually play the game was always a deterrent.

Then came along a Steam sale, and I bought this game having read that this is one of the best places to learn how to play the game for beginners. And I'm glad I did. At the moment I am over 20 hours into Magic 2014 and enjoying it inmensely. This while not even having tried online gaming, nor the expansion which I bought in the bundle, or a "closed deck' game. As a matter of fact I don't even know what a "closed deck" game means, since I'm re-playing the campaign trying to unlock cards for the different sets. Again, this while being over 20 hours in the game.

To concur with the other reviews: this is a fantastic place to learn how to play the game for beginners. The tutorial explains everything perfectly. As you go further into the campaign you will have cards with certain attributes which weren't explained in the tutorial, and with a simple mouse-click on the card you can see what it does. I'm surprised how easily it was to learn how to play Magic to be honest.

Replayability is necessary to unlock most of the cards. Considering the enemies in the campaign play the same way every time, one might think this becomes boring. For me this couldn't be further from the truth. I am actually enjoying replaying the campaign with different sets. Since you play with different cards, you'll have to rethink your strategy and despite the AI playing the same order of cards every time (I don't think this is the case for bosses though) it still becomes a new experience with every set.

As I said, I have never played Magic nor it's videogames, as such I can not judge this game by looking at other offerings and seeing what the 2014 version does worse (or better) than other versions. I can only tell that my experience with this game has been a very good one, and I would easily recommend it to anybody.

Being new to Magic the Gathering, this was not only very helpful but also very fun. Thanks to Boogie2988 I was able to start getting into a game that I thought would be to hard for me to understand. Although I am not good at the game yet, I am still able to have fun which makes it that much better when I finally beat a Planeswalker. Would recommend this to players of all diffuculties!

With 50+ hours of gameplay and all acheivements unlocked, I think I can provide a decent insight to Magic 2014 - Dules of the Planeswalkers. If you're a new player to M:tG, this is a great place to learn the very basic gameplay and mechanics of the game. You'll be exposed to cards from the very first sets all the way up to now. The game will have you unlock decks and stronger cards by facing other Planeswalkers. Deck construction is a bit limited, but with a pool of about 80 cards per deck, you should be able to come up with a few strategies for each of them. It's a great place to start if you don't want to pour money into the physical card game or Wizards of the Coast's Magic Online. Diehard fans may be a bit dissappointed with the game on the whole considering how broad and intense Magic can be outside of DoTP, but this game balances out the power curves you'll see in standard Magic: the Gathering play. You can add your own creativity in the Sealed Deck mode which enables you to build a 40-card deck from semi-radomized packs. You may have to switch your strategy as you play this mode, as you'll face different opponents who have different strategies. You won't get blown out by Pro decks, but watch out for the DLC decks as they are more powerful. You can join forces with your friends to face other AI Planeswalkers (which you can higher or lower in difficulty) or other human players. Overall, it's a great way to scratch the surface of a very in-depth game, hone your skills, and discover cards that could change the way your physical decks operate.

As an ex-paper magic player, this game is great. It helped me get back into MTG, and it's a cheap alternative (if a bit limited) to playing the real thing, even cheaper when you grab it on a sale. Sure, there are annoying bugs like games getting stuck here and there, but all in all it's a very solid MTG experience.

Imo it's very much worth its money for both beginners and returning players to hone their skills and get a feel for the game.
Also the 2 vs. 2 mode is just awesome! Big recommendation!

The main reason I bought this game was because I wanted to learn how to play the card game. The game has served this purpose, as it is relatively beginner-friendly. However, when you have mastered the basics, you start noticing the annoying restraints in deck-building and the lack of challenge in campaign mode. Especially deck-building is a very slow process with a terrible interface and many cards are unlocked or unavailable. Also, you have to pay for many features, like extra deck-slots and cards, but I guess paying for more complete products is the new standard of the world of gaming.
I like the quality of the music and it suits the atmosphere of the game. The graphics and effects are pretty nifty as well -as far as it goes for a card game- and makes it more accessible for beginners.

Overall, especially recommended for people who want to learn the basics. If you're really into deck-building, or already master the game, I would skip this one.

While an awesome game, I find some of its aspects frustrating. These include the lack of freedom when building decks and playing them in sealed mode and the lack of freedom when choosing which creature to cast a spell on (in some cases, the settings prevent moves that may otherwise have been effective in a real-world game of magic). Overall though, still great fun and I would recommend this to those who love magic. Especially good for those who want to get practice.

A pretty good game for anyone. However, if you are a more experienced player, you may find the decks somewhat lacking. I find the decks to be interesting and fun to tweak, considering nobody has a deck significantly better than anyone else's- it's a level playing field.

Also a great way to introduce yourself to Magic: the Gathering.

Magic 2014 feels pretty much the same as the 2012 version, but it's definitely improved as far as being more friendly to new players in terms of learning how to play. Magic 2014 does have a good variety of different card sets, although unlocking cards is a grind unless you spend the extra few bucks up front.

The campaign is not very enjoyable because each opponent gets a pre-made stacked deck so you pretty much need to get a lucky draw to beat their stacked deck. I do miss the Archenemy game mode in the 2012 version as well.

Overall, it's still mostly fun--for a card game that is.

This is the 2014th Magic game in the Magic series of games. Magic is now a arena based shooter MOBA card game RTS fighting game with great depth.

A great Gateway to Physical Magic, or a cheap Alternitive, if a bit limited.

Waste of money, it's fun to play once a while with friends, but the lack in features like build you own deck and deleting decks from sealing game, instead of buying more slots.

If you're into magic and fantasy, want to think tactics and strategy - get this game. The price is good and worth it for what it is, and once you get an idea of how to play, you'll realize how addicting it is.

However, if you're here, you've probably seen Magic 2015 and are thinking "why should I get this when 2015 is right there?". That game kind of failed, but it was because of the fans; they asked for a game where they can create their own decks from scratch and it back-fired on them - 2-headed giant got removed (for obvious reasons being it would be stupidly OP). I would avoid that game completely and play this until Magic 2016 comes out - even the developers say 2015 was awful.

Slight improvement over Duels 2013, paying for each individual sealed deck slot is a blatant cash grab though.
