Magic Card gaming, one of the best Cards I've ever played. 1999 The first time came into Contact with the cards, and still fascinated by Magic today. First, The Golden Rule This Rule states that any Rule can be modified or overwritten by Card Texts. Thus, rigid Control Mechanisms are broken up and a Variety of possible Strategies, Moves And Sequences arise Gameplay The Players each have alternating (or row in several Players) a Move. With The exception of the first Turn in the Game, the Player who has their Turn pulls a Card from his library at the Start of his Turn. In his Turn, a Player can play a maximum of one Country at a time. Countries are the Standard Source of Mana needed to pay for the cost of other Cards such as Witchcraft, Creatures or Artifacts. During a Train, a Player can attack other Players or their Planeswalkers once with a Selection of their Creatures. The defending players, for their Part, can block the attacking Creatures with their creatures. The blocking and blocked Creatures inflict damage to each other equal to their Attack value, all unblocked Attackers to the defending Player or his Planeswalkers. All Creatures that have received at least as much damage as their Resistance value will be destroyed. However, This Damage will not be taken into the following Train. With the Exception of Spontaneous Spells, Cards can only be played during your own Turn, outside of the Fight. On The other hand, Spontaneous Magic as well as Abilities of countries already in the Game, Creatures, Enchantments and Artifacts can be used – also on the Trains of other Players –. Exceptions to these two Rules must be explicitly noted in the Text of the relevant Card. So if you want it exciting and sometimes different, I can only recommend Magic. You Can't compare with playing other Cards.

Predictably, Magic 2013 is not the ultimate magic simulation again. Only a Fraction of the card corpus has made it into the Game and their decks are not allowed to assemble completely freely. Nevertheless, the Balancing Act between Hardcore and Casual Has been successful again: Beginners are carefully introduced to the wide World of Magic and Professionals need a Lot of Grips, especially online, in order to be able to survive. Many small Improvements in control and Handling do their rest with Mouse and Keyboard Or even with an X. any Controller games. There are again prefabricated deck, in each deck you get the Opportunity to get Tickets (you can also buy the complete Dlc Via the Steamshop) who does not or have no Desire to stay on the Ball for as long as possible. In total, there are 20 Cards to Games + which have 10 (for each deck) to receive from the Promo Codes. The Campaign is very difficult, but after a While you know the Card Combinations, it will be much easier in the later Course of the game. There are all the sounds you unlock after a While! For each successful challange, a new one is unlocked again. They are sometimes very tricky and difficult to master. In addition to the Challenges, there is the Multiplayer mode! You can All vs. all or 2 vs. 2 games. The Innovation in Magic the Gathering Duels of The Planeswalker 2013 is Planchease Mode. There you play all against all at different Levels of Magic Multiverse. In the Center there is a Pack card That can either have an Advantage or even hurt its Opponents a lot. The System works like man trouble you Not! With a Cube, depending on what you Dice And what levels you draw In cards. Everything in all it has been better optimized and made than its Predecessor. However, this Title leaves no Possibilities to Build its own deck Nous s already a little bit out of the Sails. For Friends and for yourself, the Game is already pretty good at the Campaign as in Multiplayer to Games ...
