Dear Wizards of the Coast. You seriously need to step your game up and create a DTCG (Digital Trading Card Game) that actually competes with other DTCG's currently and upcoming out there. You have failed to create a singular platform (Magic Online is a piece of garbage) where all MGTO fans can gather and play each other for fun and competitivly. Look at Infinity Wars, HEX, hell even Hearthstone.... How dense can ya'll be?

I have been wanting to play a singular online platform of MGTO on my desktop since I was in middleschool, I am now 26... I am still waiting for ya'll to get your act together and create an actually stable, graphicle, and appealing online game. You have failed to do so and have given us this. Sure it's good looking and stable. But there is still tons to be desired to even be as competent as the other DTCG who have far less funding yet FAR surpass you. This shouldn't HAPPEN! I have always loved and dedicated a lot of time on MGTO but for some odd reason even though you're the big one in the room you FAIL at giving what your fans and dedicated players want.

If you guys stopped with this whole "Release" a new title every year which are limited in their cards that fractures your player base and created a single downloadable client that we all can download and all be able to play with a cash shop and all then I'd be happy. I want to spend my money on your DTCG game but at your current state and your competition my money goes to them instead of you.

Don't get me wrong I enjoyed playing this game but coming from playing other competing DTCG's you have left massive holes to be desired and to improve upon. Stop releasing new 'games' every year. Focus on the engine and release card collections like the rest of the herd. No microtransactions on a game that will be dead next year. I dont want to start my collection from scratch every year!

Hopefully you get it right the next time but my expectations will always be low.

Firstly I've been playing this game since revised and this is the 6th computer version I've played.
So my basic opionions on it.

1. There is no 2 headed giant. A major drawback for some. I miss it, but I can live without it.
2. Terrible starting decks. It's a deleberate game push towards teaching deck tweeking. And it does lend to the true beginners experiance of not having any cards.
3. The automatic funtions as always have to be turned of. I can declaire my own attackers thank you, and I'll choose when I'm done with a stage. I know they use this for beginners, but it's truely as always anoying and useless. Even beginners need to learn how to manage games stages.
4. The card pool of unlockable cards is one of the biggest of all the electronic versions. Still not enough cards for my taste. But a nice big unlockable pool. And don't pay to unlock the cards, just play for them. Easy enough to get everything but the battle packs.
5. Foils again?! Why? Worthless online; you can't trade them for upmarket value like in real face to face and as always they make it VERY difficult to see which card is which on screen.
6. Multiplayer is a bit sparce currently. It may pick up, I suspect though with people still playing 2012 on here, 2013 on here, and 2014 on here; just massively hampers the number of players. And to top that with no 2headed giant available as of yet...
7. There are no stupid slots you have to pay to unlock! WOOP!

Now you take all that.. and it is still a good version of magic online. Well worth buying and playing. If you love deck crafting this is the best version available. Could use a larger card pool, but at least they are giving you a great lake to play in rather than the typical large pond the hand you. I just wish they'd give us the ocean.

Short Version: Do not buy this game. If you want to play Magic at your computer without investing in MTGO, buy DOTP 2014 instead.

Quite frankly WOTC isnt known for quality control of digital products, but this might actually be the worst designed product with their name on it that I've seen (and I played MTG Tactics and MTG Battlegrounds). I finally decided to try this version out, despite all of the negative things I've heard about it. Surprisingly though, its somehow worse than I expected.

The microtransactions arent the real problem here. Certainly they are there, and that is slightly annoying given that the point of the DOTP franchise is to play MTG without that aspect of the card game. However as a paper MTG player I'm certainly used to that.

No, the real problem here is that the game that you are paying for is garbage. First of all, its one of the most abysmal PC ports I've seen in awhile. Instead of a menu screen, you get a series of icons that you scroll through one at a time until you find the one you were trying to get to. Even in game, the mouse controls are strangely less smooth and not as responsive as in 2014. It feels like the function of every aspect of the game has been sacrificed to try to make things look "cool".

And since I'm talking about the appearance of the game. It looks horrible. Why is everything on the screen black and grey? Did someone at the studio decide that the colorful blues, golds, and reds of DOTP 2014 were too pleasant to look at? The whole design of the in-game interface is not only far less convenient and poorly laid out, but also just plain irritating to look at. Are me and my opponent playing MTG in some dystopian sci-fi future where joy is illegal?

But so far I've been talking about the interface, gameplay functionality, and apperance of the game; "what about the actual card game?", you excitedly ask.

Unfortunately its just not worth it. I continuously feel as though Im playing the sealed gameplay mode of DOTP 2014... except with less interesting cards. And this is the 2015 campaign gameplay. Sure being able to make my own deck with random cards is nice, but if I wanted to make a crappy deck with crappy cards I would play sealed mode. Which I can already do in DOTP 2014. And if I want to play multiplayer or the campaign, 2014 lets me play with some fun Magic cards from throughout MTG history instead of the boring trash you get to work with in 2015.

In conclusion, if at any given time I was unable to go out and play paper Magic with people in person, I would play DOTP 2014. If I was unable to play DOTP 2014, I would play Hearthstone. And if I was forced to play DOTP 2015... I would go read a book.

Learn from my mistake, dont buy this version of DOTP. Dont support their horrible decisions. Hopefully WOTC will seriously rethink their poorly implemented digital business model.

Introduction
I am a avid Magic the Gathering player and was waiting for this game to come out. Unfortunately i was disappointed when i found this game dropped the ball so hard.

Pros

  • Custom Deck Building
  • Campaign can be fun at times


Cons

  • No Two-Headed Giant
  • Some good cards are behind a dlc paywall
  • The AI’s decks have all of the cool cards
  • lack of polish on the game


Conclusion
Just buy magic 2014 instead. This game completely dropped the ball. It had the potential, but there is so much that just went wrong in this game for me to recommend this to anyone.

Welcome to MTG DotPw 2015.

It's a pos compare to 2014 (which is the best, so far). As you get into the game you're pushed on some AD which only counts in the US or what not so why push this on us outside the US border... after that you're greeted with this garbage of a Menu UI. Some touch / console trash which makes you furious to navigate, when playing the "game" it still the same UI luckly.

Now! what's new, beside the awful UI? Well, they added something we've been asking / hoping for, deck buidling. But, it turned out to be a dumb gimmick, given all you get is a small pool of mostly terrible cards. I'd rather go back to pre constructed decks which gets 40 unlocks or whatever than this.

They removed two headed giant and there's no archenemy, why? It's like removing conquest from battlefield or TDM from call of duty.

3/10

After multiple hours of xbox 360 xbox one and a few on PC, I must say this game has matured. (skip ahead if you dont intend to have DLC) If you have got the expansion, grinded all the cards and have the 5 free update packs, you have a variety to play with and can evem make a strong mono-color deck, maybe a tri-color deck. Options are more viable now. Even with all the cards unlocked things can be a little difficult, but a deck may be crafted that comes out ontop and if cards are put together properly i feel that the game can be taken to new heghts, If you plan on paying 15$ for the game, you will have lots of fun. It especially helps when you fight the last boss (garruk) twice and if you restart you have to play both of them all over.

For those who dont buy the DLC you still have some options, Tri-decks will not be nearly as viable though, so if you prefer to stay in the dual deck range you are fine, decks made without dlc interference will be a little more rigid, but you can still craft something from the battle packs you unlock and the 5 free update packs. Again, it will be rigid, but sometimes it can be okay to be rigid, some of the cards in the DLC will never find a place in my deck, but boiling soup is a pain in the butt if Griselbrand or a Dragon is on your field. Note: this is still difficult to play if you dont buy dlc, however using the free update packs may help, I refuse to pull an IGN and say "give them your money" the game can be difficult, annoying and you may want to throw something, I got angry with it before DLC came out but i will have a rating down below.

Overall comparison:

2015/2014: 2015 increases versatility, we dont have people running around with a crappy samurai deck nor a supra eldrazi deck, it isnt impossible to win games and have fun.

2015/2013: 2013 in my opinion was my favorite, the decks were all balanced so anyone could win no matter what deck people were playing, but in this game we see a little unbalancing issue, there are many ways around it since it is a deck builder and we can have any number of decks (from what i can see) but some cards from some colors are just too powerful to ignore.

2015/2012: 2015 is a miraculous improvement, 2012 simply gave us a better version of 2010.

2015/2010: the original game that started the series has faded, and in many ways I could say that both have very positive attributes, while two-headed giant is gone, i still have fun absolutely destroying my friends, and i enjoy fighting mirror matches on practice mode. however 2010 had more options for a dual, you couldnt edit decks as much as the other iterations but you could change the life amount, hand size (and for some who dont know there was a "revenge" version of nicol bolas for his original deck in 2010 that you could play against in 2-headed giant which was insane) all of this changed the way the game felt.

If 2014 were a 10/10 this game would be a 7.65/10 (I argued with myself on this one...)
if 2013 were a 10/10 this game would be a 6/10
if 2012 were a 10/10 this game would be a 11/10 (vast improvements that made it better than the best possible product)
if 2010 were a 10/10 this game would be a 10/10

Rating:

Overall the game w/ DLC is a 7.5/10 (this refers to how much i wanted to keep playing and had fun)
without DLC this game is a 5/10 (in my opinion it really does add that amount of flavor but you might think differently if you play it the base game was good enough for me to play through but not replay over and over like after the updates and expansion)

love this game, brings out the strategist in me, not just in play but along time before that in deck construction. Sure there are alot of players out there that talk crap, but there are also some awesome players that really understand tactics to the finest detail. 4 player is where it's at.

This may have been plagued by bugs and instability when it first launched but all of that seems to be gone. A much more mature, tactical experience centered around your brain, not the shuffle - unlike Youknowwhostone. 8/10

This game came as part of a humble bundle I purchased. I wasn't expecting much from it because I was under the impression that online magic games were pay2win crap, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that most of the cards can be unlocked just through playing. If you are impatient and hate money you can pay a certain amount to get everything immediately. I usually feel cheated when people play cards against me I don't have access to (e.g. when I play in a casual modern tournament and realize the guy sitting across from me has a $800 deck), but the pool of cards in this game is fairly small and you will be able to make a decent PvP deck very quickly. I actually enjoyed trying to find a way to turn a handful of bad cards into something usable when I first started playing this game. It's like playing a draft. I can't imagine why other reviewers are complaining about the starter decks being weak, do you really need Black Lotus to beat a laughably stupid AI with a deck full of 2/2s? It took me maybe a day to run through the campaign and I've been only playing PvP since and I find it strange how easily I can get a match, even when I play at odd times in the middle of the night or very early in the morning. One thing I like about this game is that Wizards seems to have hand-picked the cards available in it. There are still cards that are much better than others, but it makes the meta unique to just this game. The graphics in this game are a bit buggy, but overall the interface is nice in an dumbed-down Apple product kind of way.

All in all, it's a cool game if you like Magic. Cockatrice is better, but this is still a nice change of pace from playing the same worn-out netdecks over and over.

Ok. After 226 hours of playing this game i think its time to write a review. This game is good in some ways and bad in others.

THE REAL PROBLEM with this game is that it doesnt have many gameplay mods. for example 2HG. I LOVED playing 2v2. It was one of my favourite mods. And they just took it away from the game without caring about the people that loved it or for those who were just playing it for this particular mod or others.

THE REAL CON is that you FINALLY can construct your own decks. Putting in any colours you like, creating your own combos and unique ideas. That and one more thing is what kept me into the game. The other factor that made me play this game for so many hours are the new cards that were added and keep being added to the game.

Now i want to say something to the company that made this game.

1) Keep adding cards in this game.
2) In the next magic game KEEP the abillity and the freedom of constructing your own deck.
3) In the next magic game PUT MANY MODS and new cards and make a better ui u can rise the prise a little bit but many will buy it and you will keep the players IN the game.

I am going to recomend this game. Only to the players that like 1v1 and prefer to play as a lone wolf. I am not one myself But i still liked the game even if i am realy disapointed about the lack of mods.

I try not to give meaningless reviews, so I put some time in the game before deciding to recommend it. Perspective: I have played the original Magic game in the 90's, and I did get the 2012 edition of the game. I do not play IRL Magic.

Pros: 1) DECK BUILDING! I despised that I could not actually craft a meaningful deck in any of the prior games like 2012.
2) Multiplayer seems relatively stable in 1v1 duels, which is what I usually play online.
3) The AI is reasonablystrong, although it does get a bit predictable with extended playing.
4) I am disappointed that WOC seems far more interested in their pocketbook than customers' enjoyment. The pandering to buy DLC is rather demoralizing. The good news here is that if you just PLAY THE GAME through, and are willing to go win a few duels online, you can get all of the cards that are available in the DLC for free.

Cons: 1) The fact that some of the higher end decks you fight in the single player mode have cards that you are not allowed access to again speaks to the fact that the game is more about filling WOC's pocket than providing an experience that is as good as playing the IRL card game. That said, I still feel it was worth the $10 or so I spent on the game and the expasion. It would be nice if these cards were added to the player pool at some point.
2) Again, you (don't) get what you (don't) pay for: the single player game is bereft of almost all semblances of a single player game: animations, cut scenes, etc. There may be a total of 25 seconds of unique graphics in the entire base game, including the intro animation. The original 90's game had a significantly better developed plot and GUI for travelling and having random encounters/duels.
3) Others have complained that the multiplayer lacks certain 3- and 4-player options that were present previously. I cannot comment on this, but you can read others' reviews for the details.

In short, the game is not perfect, but few games are. I find it a good way to blow off some steam playing online 1v1 or vs. the AI, but it is not a game you will spend 100 hours or 100 dollars on. Get it for cheap on sale, and enjoy what is there.

For all of its flaws, I still think DotP 2015 is a great game.

It doesn't have many of the features that the previous editions of the franchise did (2HG, Archenemy, etc.), and it doesn't have quite as much laser-focus on the decks it includes; you can build a green ramp deck, for example, but it won't go quite as big and bold as the Eldrazi-spamming equivalents in DotP 2012-2014. That said, if you're willing to experiment, the card collection on tap allows for many flexible and entertaining archetypes, and offers some of the first real support for 3+ color decks (your decks can include all of the Ravnica dual lands, as well as the cycles of Alara and Tarkir tri-lands). If you like building decks, this has a pretty interesting metagame, and you can now unlock all of the cards just through play (no more irritating pay-walls for the premium cards). If you like Magic, give it a shot - it's only $10.

This is a good game, far from perfect, but good in the end. the single player campaign is ok, but i feel the AI is cheap sometimes pulling the right cards at the right moment, then again that might just be my perception. the fact that you need to collect the cards from all the blocks by dueling makes it interesting, at least for me, except for the multiplayer part, where people disconnect when they realize they are losing, denying you a battle booster, but that issue doesn't come from the game. the cards available are very limited compared to the real thing, but if you don't have a group to play the paper version i don't think you would mind that much. the deck editor is one of my favorite features, the filters help you out a lot.

overall i'll give it a 7/10 and i would recommend you to buy it only if you don't don't have time, friends or money to play the real one(i lack the three of them, thats way i purchased it :P).

I dont see why people are hating on this game so much. i have casualy finished and unlock all the cards in the last two weeks with only spending $10, the only in game purchases you HAVE to get to unlock all the cards are the DLC and the Alara collection, (not sure about the battle boosters though) but you can easy unlock all the card collection in the campain and couple matches with the (explore the chosen world feature).

only thing i have problems with the game is that you cant restart/change after you picked you starter deck colours after the tutorial and that when you select a card in you hand you cant out it back you HAVE to cast it unless the card has a target effect you can just select cancel, also the whole layout of the game is made for tablets.

Not as bad as people make out, it's a hard slog to get all the cards needed to get into multiplayer without getting destroyed, but once you do, you can have a lot of fun trying out different setups and experiementing with deck builds, regardless of whether you win any games with them or not.

By the way, I have 47 hours logged on Steam but over 500 on the iPad version, which doesn't have 3 and 4 player modes but is far nicer to play with touchscreen over K&M/gamepad.

A solid entry in the Duels of the Planeswalkers series.

Allowing you to create your own deck from scratch instead of using augmented pre-constructed decks is a really great feature and something the series desperately needed.

Otherwise, it's Magic the Gathering. The gameplay is still smooth and probably the best virtual experience you can get with MTG.

My only complaint would be that the card pool is still limited... I was hoping to at least play with the full sets that were included in the game, not a subset of each. Perhaps for future titles, although MTGO will probably prevent this from happening.
