Magic: The Gathering enters the free-to-play Arena today

I've always been a little terrified of Magic: The Gathering. Not the game itself, mind. The lifestyle. I've never been in the home of a Magic player where old cards weren't spilling from every drawer, scattered on every floor. In one, they had enough dud cards to make a beautiful tree collage right up the side of the living room wall. Beautifully horrifying, that. I'll…

Magic: The Gathering Arena opens its doors to all next week

Magic: The Gathering might be the great granddaddy of card-battlers, but it's still cool, dammit - you'll be able to see for yourself when Magic: The Gathering Arena enters open beta next week. You kids may have your Hearthstones, your Eternals and even your Slay The Spires, but there's still nothing quite like passively aggressing someone to death with an all-blue shutdown deck. The free-to-play…

Magic: The Gathering Arena’s economy sounds surprisingly reasonable

While I'd never describe myself as a die-hard fan, I've dabbled in Magic: The Gathering since the 90s across its physical form, the early RPG-like Microprose adaptation of the game, and even a bit of Magic Online, which is still running despite having barely changed over the past 15 years. The latest digital adaptation, Magic: Arena is currently in closed beta testing, and the developers…

Magic: The Gathering Arena wants digital MTG to be “as much fun to watch as it is to play

In the manner of a bodyguard hurling themselves in front of a bullet, I am hurling myself in front of a story about Magic: The Gathering's digital free-to-play card game, Magic: The Gathering Arena [official site] in order to protect Alice and Brendan from it. SAVE YOURSELVES, FRIENDS!
