New features revealed for Magic 2014

Wizards of the Coast have announced today two new features coming to Magic 2014 – Duels of the Planeswalkers. Sealed Play and a new take on the popular Slivers creature type will make their debut in the Duels of the Planeswalkers franchise with Magic 2014.

Sealed Play will allow players to open booster packs and build decks to play against the AI and other players. The sealed pools are each comprised of 84 cards, copying paper TCG booster packs. The PVE in Magic 2014 will include a six-deck ladder where players take on mono-colored Sealed decks each corresponding with a particular Planeswalker, and facing a ‘boss’ Sealed deck.

The Slivers Magic 2014 decks will include the following:

  • Sliver Construct
  • Predatory Sliver
  • Groundshaker Sliver
  • Megantic Sliver
  • Blur Sliver
  • Striking Sliver
  • Thorncaster Sliver
  • Battle Sliver
  • Sentinel Sliver
  • Bonescythe Sliver

Magic 2014 – Duels of the Planeswalker will be released sometime during the summer, most likely July – the physical core set comes out then.
