Happy Thursday MTG peeps,
Following up on our recent post from Tuesday, we wanted to go through some interesting revelations from Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 (aka 'DotP 2013' or 'D13'). This digital game has Magic: the Gathering fans very excited about its release anticipated to roughly co-incide with the paper (card) release of the Magic 2013 core set. In the past (and in no way guaranteed for the future), a number of new cards in the DotP release found it's way into the core set.
Let's have a look at some of the screen shots now . . .
The main menu and deck manager screens with very slick background arts.
Some screen caps for in-game damage.
We think that the very cool addition of Planechase in Duels of the Planeswalkers hits this one right outta the park.~
Righto - here's some cards which caught our attention - Angelic Benediction, Archaeomancer, Archon of Redemption, Chameleon Colossus , Fangren Firstborn, Fiery Hellhound, Fire Elemental, Indrik Stomphowler , Pyre Charger, Searing Spear, Servant of Nef(?), Silent Arbiter, Sleight of Hand, Turn the Tables
As well as some new cards -
Human Wizard - Common
When Archaeomancer enters the battlefield, return target instant or sorcery card from your graveyard to your hand.
Servant of Nefarox(?), 2B
Human Cleric - Common
Yep - there is some arguments here that the popular 'exalted' mechanic may be returning to the core set. This recent tweet from MTG Aaron also lends well to this speculation.
And here is some of the marketing 4.1.1. for you . . .
Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 will be launching on Xbox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, Steam, and iPad for the first time ever, and Wizards of the Coast is kicking off the excitement with an exciting new gameplay trailer and collection of screenshots showing off each platform!
In Duels 2013, players can compete with friends or the AI as they travel across fantastic planes, take on encounters and mini-bosses, attempt to solve puzzling challenges, and team up with others in the updated Planechase multiplayer format. The digital game will also be the first place to check out new cards from the upcoming Magic: The Gathering 2013 Core Set.
The folks over at MTG Mint Card already have up known Planechase 2012 singles for pre-order, so check 'em out.
