We asked for true deck building in the Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers franchise and now it looks like we are getting it in the form of sealed play. Sealed play, along with the Slivers creature type, will make their debut when Magic 2014
launches this Summer.
Sealed play will allow players to obtain and open booster packs and build custom decks against the computer and other players. Sealed pools have 84 cards, just like the real game, and there is even a six-deck ladder where players can take on mono-colored sealed decks and a boss. As for the introduction of slivers, the game will feature the following: Sliver Construct, Predatory Sliver, Groundshaker Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Blur Sliver, Striking Sliver, Thorncaster Sliver, Battle Sliver, Sentinel Sliver, Bonescythe Sliver, as well as the Hive Stirrings card which will generate a number of Sliver tokens.
Magic 2014: Duels of the Planeswalkers will be available this Summer for PC, XBLA, PSN, iPad, and Android.
