I’m really liking this game. I think it should be pointed out that in addition to @TheDukester’s beloved blocking, there are instant speed spells! In a new card game?! What is this 1995? Interaction between players when it’s not their turn? Fuck yes there is. It’s about damn time.
From what I was reading about before I started, the the rewards were super generous before a recent change. After that change they’re even more generous. That is unless you’re playing more than roughly 40 games a day, after which they’re marginally less generous.
This game reminds me so much of Magic, but that’s to be expected considering its designers are a lot of big name Magic Pro Tour players. It’s definitely different though, and fresh (and cheap) enough to enjoy regularly. I’m so glad they have multiple limited formats, and I’m super pumped to get back into an actual draft game. I need to put some time in to learn the cards first. That’s all I ever wanted to do on MtG Online, but I wasn’t paying $15 a pop to do it.
