I recommend this game to learn how to play Magic: The Gathering.

This game was NOT intended for the hardcore fans.

However, YOU DON'T JUST GET STUCK WITH YOUR STARTING DECK. In 8 hours of playing it only completing maybe 20% of all cards in the game. I have a very decent Red/White/Blue Control/Speed deck. Lot's of reviews keep dogging this, but honestly, have you ever played with a Starter deck and bought booster packs? You'll be in the same boat in real life! So, I've been there done that. Not an issue for me to grind boosters.

Though I am not completely satisfied, I have also been playing for the last 8 hours testing out new decks and cards which I haven't gotten the chance to find yet in the actual physical TCG.

If you want a free testing source: Get this. It's totally worth especially if you are patient.

If you want to learn how to play: Get it. Though I feel like some things are a bit... weird in this game. The ideas are all there and it's a good tool to learn how to play the actual TCG.

If you want to learn how to build a deck: Get it. The booster packs are actually better than physical ones. You never have to worry about land cards, because the game supplies you an infinite amount of basic lands, and later on you get plenty of multi-color. I've gotten plenty of Mythic Rares since I started playing today. I've gotten a great Red/White/Blue deck started.

If you already know magic and have a great deck IRL: Don't get this. It's not nearly as enjoyable as playing at your local game shop.

If you are impatient: Be prepared to spend 5-20$ on getting a decent deck early on. Otherwise, this might not be the game for you, just go out and spend that 20$ on a deckbuilders Toolkit.

Overall I rate this game a 6/10. The lack of Two-Headed Giant is 3 points straight off the bat. But some compensation for the deck building and allowing you to create your very own decks.

The Good: You can finally construct your own decks. Some of the opponents are interesting.

The Bad: No puzzle mode. The computer opponents get cards that are more fun than yours. Most of the good cards are locked behind pay walls, even in the fully purchased version (like the one I got).

The Ugly: Game crashes CONSTANTLY. And I mean constantly. I have yet to actually shut the game down of my own choice. It always crashes to desktop instead.

Recommended For: Masochists who enjoy a Computer Opponent who cheats and always has an optimal hand. Folks who really just can't get enough crashes to desktop. Your enemies.

Not as bad as the reviews say.

The interface is bad. Unlike in 2014, every menu action is much slower.

You won't be able to build a modern strong deck because there isn't as much synergy. However compared to standard there's a lot more synergistic cards. But this is way better than having 80 or so cards to choose from in each deck. Deckbuilding was fun.

The game was a bit too hard for me on the default planeswalker difficulty. I couldn't beat the hydra guy with my ♥♥♥♥ty cards. On mage difficulty the bots have worse cards and a fairly dumb AI.

The story is dumb. Spoiler below.

Tip: Try to explore ravnica to get more dual lands asap. Also beating someone unlocks 4ofs for dual lands of your chosen color so choose your colors wisely. The cards you get in your starter deck are all ♥♥♥♥ and will be mostly replaced after a few packs. But the colors can help speed up how fast you get your first good rare and your playset of a dual land.

They kill off the planeswalker in 2014 >.< wtf story.

Overall the game was great for helping me learn mechanics as a new player to the game. However, I don't think I would recommend this to experienced players just do to the fact that there are so few cards and the decks you can make are very limited.

- Awful port
- Crashes 1-2 times per hour,
- Bad cardbase
- Premium cards are better than orginal, P2W
- Shallow singleplayer, no challenges, last single player boss winning based on luck

Don't buy this not even new player can enjoy this pile of trash.

After spending a lot of time playing Magic 2014, both the story mode and online with freinds I've ended up feeling rather betrayed it's sucessor. Specifically I dislike the way decks and the aqquisition of new cards has been handled. After a brief tutorial you are thrown to a very large list of pre-assembled decks, all looking suitably cool with their flavour names and artwork, however expect to enjoy only one of these for a very large amount of play because that is all you may use with the standard edition. No information is given on any of the decks apart from their colours and it is not made clear that the decision you make here is final with no going back to sample the others. To me this feels like a gentle shove in the direction of the £4 a pop dlc packs offering all the cards instantly. After this at the end of each sucessful duel you will be given a booster pack relating to the plane you are currently on, a nice idea that gives you options for customisation that may not have been so prelavent in previous editions. This system is flawed however, I found on my playthrough the packs to be glitchy, and several times I was re-issued the same pack. The departure of Two Headed Giant, a mode me and freinds enjoyed significantly seems to seal the deal for me. I can't recommend this game particularly, I'd rather just go back to 2014 and play Echanter's Arsenal without having to throw Wizards any more money than I already have...

They took pretty much everything that made the previous version good and either removed it or filled it with glitches somehow. Very very much a let down. If you want to play Duels of the Planeswalkers then I recommend you buy the 2014 version.

the only thing i disliked about this game is i wasted 10 bucks for it to not work. it loads the first loading screen then cuts out back to your desktop. I've tried everything to fix it by going to into the steam folder and changing the config settings and trying to chainge it to window mode and backing up the files.alot of other people are also having this issue. I don't know what else i can do to fix this issue.

Some how each iteration of this game is worse than the previous version. Want to switch decks in single or multiplayer? Well you have to exit put of those modes to change. No more two-headed giant. Planechase still gone. I really can't see springing for the next version of this game unless they really buff it up.

This game is about what one would expect from a Magic the Gathering video game. Tap mana to play spells, bring your opponent to zero life or have their deck run out before yours does. Standard fare for what one might expect. The story even has some moderate relevance to the game at large, especially in the form of the new Ob Nixilis.

Building your own personal deck(s) is a new feature and one that I rather like a lot. But there are a few things that restrict this quality. First off, this game does not have quite as many cards as I had expected. While, yes, it does take cards from M15, Innistrad, Theros, Return to Ravnica, and Zendikar blocks, along with a few odds and ends cards to improve the pool, you still only have access to about as many cards as you did in the previous installment, if that. Only Evolve and Bloodrush are present from Ravnica as far as guild mechanics go for playable cards, for example, and Bestow is conspicuously absent. This is made worse by the fact that almost 100 of the cards are additional purchases on top of the game. Secondly, this game has a few bugs and issues with the interface. One of the primary complaints that I have had about it is that the option to choose the order of damage is not automatically on, and the interface for doing so is a bit unusual. There are also bugs in receiving a few titles and avatars. Third, and perhaps one of the most obnoxious things out there, is the existance of decks that are illegal. The game refuses to tell you why this deck can't be used, only that it can't be used. I myself experienced this while trying to build a RWU deck.

Matchmaking will also frequently become an issue, as games will occasionally be joined when two players are already in the lobby, or the connections will outright fail.

Overall then, I would say that this game has a number of things to like about it, but it was heavily hyped for being able to customize your own deck as much as you want. What the hype did not include was how much was traded off for this functionality. While I do not dislike this game by any stretch, nor do I dislike Wizards and their affiliates for it, I could not recommend this to a friend in good conscience. I feel this game is underpolished and could have used a bit more time on the refining steps.

Yes it has deck building, but the mechanics of this game are bugged all to hell. Game makes impossible moves, cannot count damage properly, and above all the shuffle mechanic is broken as ♥♥♥♥... I spent an hour trying to get a hand that did not either have 2 mana or 6 mana.

Its an OK game. The interface on PC is terrible - its designed for touch. I reached the final boss 2nd stage and my cards won't do it, so I'm stuck unless I shell out more money for a booster pack or start completly over. So I'm done, and if the next version does this I won't buy it. So since I can't finish the game because the people that made it are greedy, I don't recomend it.

Slow load times, slow menu transitions, slow everything. Thats not even going into the fact that they removed so many features from the last iteration. You can't even unlock all the cards unless you do their silly micro transaction nonsense. Just terrible. Please dont buy this garbage. I cannot stress that you do not give these people any more money for this worthless failure of a game engine and overall worthless design philosophy.

Advantages:
- you can finally build your own deck, freely without any limitations (other than cards available in game)

Disadvantages:
- slow and unresponsive menu - you have to click the same button multiple times or wait 5 seconds for stupid animation to finish
- interface bugs - sometimes when asked to make a choice you are unable to do this (e.g. you are asked to choose a card from graveyard but you cannot look into the graveyard) - the only solution is to concede a duel
- game play bugs such as AI taping one swamp to pay "one black mana + X any mana" with X = 1
- AI is taking a lot of time to make the choice (as in the previous editions)
- the game gets boring after you unlock all the cards by playing campaign
- only standard games - no archenemy, no planechase, no two headed giant
- no challenge puzzles
- some cards cannot be unlocked in the campaign, but have to be bought via micro transactions
- a lot of cards implemented in the game are not available to the player, but are used by AI

Overall the game is very disappointing and unless you are huge MTG fan you shouldn't waste your money on it. It's based on the same engine as previous editions, so the only work they have actually done was adding a deck building tool and implemented new cards.
