Fans of the Magic: The Gathering Duels of the Planeswalkers series have continually requested more deckbuilding and customization options. Well, this is the year folks - Players can crack packs and build decks from the ground up in Duels of the Planeswalkers 2015. Decks are fully customizable, and though the title will be coming to a broad basket of platforms Sony’s PS3 and PS4 are mysteriously absent from the list.

We had a chance to pilot a green/black deck through some standard challenges and games at PAX East 2014. The gameplay is what players should expect by now from the series and essentially unchanged, but players can now earn packs through gameplay. Once a player has completed a campaign area, they have the option to battle the equivalent of a “wandering monster’ to earn additional rewards and packs. The first pack a player opens will contain a rare of their “preferred” color, with all packs after that containing a random assortment of cards.

Along with full deck customization options players can easily sort by mana cost to help create decks that have a solid mana curve. New players will find the “autocomplete” deck function especially valuable, as it will fill any remaining deck slots with appropriate cards.

Packs will also be available for purchase to assist players working on creating decks and collections. While the price point isn’t yet hammered out, it’s reasonable to expect that these will fall in line with the microtransactions present in current Duels of the Planeswalkers.
