Dueling Planeswalkers: Magic 2015 Improving Deck-Building

It's a kind of Magic

“Alice!” friends scream in my face. “You have to play Netrunner! Why don’t you play Netrunner? Let’s play Netrunner! Netrunnerrr!” I sneer dismissively but turn away to hide a single tear rolling down my cheek. I can’t play Netrunner, I just can’t. Having spent so much of my teenage years obsessing over Magic: The Gathering, I’m too afraid that I’d be held rapt by its cardboard wiles.

The annual Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers games from Stainless have always given me just enough to tide me over, reminding me of how wonderful a game Magic is but being limited enough to stop me sinking in. It’s a bit concerning, then, that the newly-announced Magic 2015 edition is said to expand deck-building.

At this point all we have is a press release’s word that Magic 2015 has “the ability to build customized decks” as a “new feature,” suggesting it’ll be more in-depth than before. The deck-building tools are said to be “even more robust” too, and do look less of a mess in the screenshot below. If Magic 2015 were letting players build decks completely from scratch, the marketing would probably shout a lot louder about that, so let’s assume it’s mostly an expansion of customisation. That may be frustrating for you, but is a huge relief to me.

Magic 2015 will launch this summer, seemingly ahead of the cardboard 2015 Core Set due in July.

Customisation's certainly looking better
