It has come to my attention that most of the decks I’ve showcased in this column include green. And why not? Green is a great facilitator! It easily increases and fixes your mana so you can cast as many rhinos as you want. That said, I’m down for something different, how about something artifacty in blue?
I’ve spent a good deal of time playing the original Duels of the Planeswalkers which I would categorize as very enjoyable. It’s always nice to find an online game of magic even when all my friends are asleep (because it’s before 1pm). That said it definitely had some irksome issues, so the only way that I was going to give a positive review to its progeny, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, is if those issues were addressed.
