To tie us all over until wednesday ;)


Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 by Wizards of the Coast and Stainless Games will be launching on Xbox LIVE Arcade, The PlayStation Network, and Steam this Wednesday, June 15th 2011 for $10. However is the sequel to the original Duels of the Planeswalkers which sold over half a million copies on Xbox 360 LIVE (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/duels-of-the-planeswalkers-sells-half-a-million-copies-on-xbox-360-live-arcade) worth the price? After spending a whopping 67 hours (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281841#main) with the title over the past week my answer is an unquestionable "Yes!".
If you've never played a game of Magic, or perhaps you are a returning player that needs a refresh of the rules, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 is great way to learn. Additionally, throughout the course of the game every time you encounter an ability that you haven't seen before you'll be presented with a rules tip with what that ability does. Once you are familiar with how to play you can disable future rules tips.
Players begin with the white Gideon Jura "Wielding Steel" deck, and as you play through the game's campaign you'll unlock additional cards and other decks to play with too.

There are ten playable decks in total:

Gideon Jura - "Wielding Steel" (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/duels-of-the-planeswalkers-2012-gideon-jura-wielding-steel-deck-list)
Sorin Markov - "Bloodhunger"
Tezzeret Agent of Bolas - "Machinations"
Nissa Revane - "Guardians of the Wood"
Chandra Nalaar - "Unquenchable Fire"
Garruk Wildspeeker - "Apex Predators"
Jace Beleren - "Realm of Illusion"
Koth of the Hammer - "Strength of Stone"
Sarkhan Vol - "Dragon's Roar"
Kiora Atua - "Denizens of the Deep" (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/meet-magic-s-newest-planeswalker-kiora-atua-duels-of-the-planeswalkers-2012)
(check back later for links to all the card lists)

One of the many improvements that Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 features over its predecessor is enhanced deck editing. By defeating all of the planeswalkers in the single player or in the Archenemy campaign you'll unlock 16 cards for each deck. Note that for those who are impatient the deck editor does feature the option to unlock the deck and acquire the premium foil version by making a purchase from the store (price unknown at time of review).

To say that players are able to fully customize their decks would be a misnomer as you're only allowed to used the 16 additional cards for each deck. Additionally, one doesn't have any control over the amount of land in their deck. What the new game does allow is for players to remove cards from the core of their deck, unlike the previous installment.

The single player's final boss is Karn, who's deck is ridiculously overpowered. Karn went first, played an Island, then a Mox Sapphire (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281756#main). Mox Sapphire! After recovering from my excitement of seeing this Vintage staple with new art and updated text (or rather no text) I finally clicked "continue" and Karn passed the turn to me. "Well ok, that's not that bad" I thought to myself. After drawing for my first turn and played a Plains, and then an Elite Vanguard (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281991#main). On Karn's second turn he played Tinker (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281761#main) sacrificing Mox Sapphire, and finds a Darksteel Colossus (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281766#main). I wasn't sure we were playing the same game as each other. Without an Arrest (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281986#main) or Gideon's Lawkeeper (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/m12-gideon-s-lawkeeper), I quickly lost. Completely unfair, but awesome.

Speaking of hard, there are some ridiculous shenanigans that your opponent will pull off with the schemes in Archenemy. Archenemy is a Magic: the Gathering multiplayer variant that was introduced last summer in paper Magic, and it is faithfully replicated in Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012.

Speaking of hard, there are some ridiculous shenanigans that your opponent will pull off with the schemes in Archenemy. Archenemy is a Magic: the Gathering multiplayer variant that was introduced last summer in paper Magic, and it is faithfully replicated in Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012.

While there are default settings for what decks your allies are playing with against each opponent in the single player Archenemy campaign, one can also choose what decks their two computer allies are playing with. After being utterly destroyed on just the forth turn by Koth, I decided to team up against him using three Jace Beleren "Realm of Illusion" decks. The "Realm of Illusion" deck is just nuts in this format. Within four turns there were three 10/10 Krovikan Mists (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281851#main) in play, and because in Archenemy you share a turn together Time Warp (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281971#main) will help your team ensure that the Archenemy doesn't get another turn.

Like Karn in the single player campaign, Nicol Bolas doesn't play by the rules either. With a full play set of Abyssal Gatekeeper (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281796#main)s, board sweepers like Damnation (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281811#main), and stall tactics like Subversion (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281976#main), Nicol Bolas will live long enough to finish you off with a Ryusei, the Falling Star (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281856#main), Keiga, the Tide Star (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281846#main), Blood Tyrant (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281806#main), or one of the other many bombs in his deck.

Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 supports up to three human players playing against the Archenemy, however at this time no one other than the computer can play as the Archenemy themselves. There is also four player Free for All and Two Headed Giant modes too. In all of the multiplayer modes, you can enable it so that the computer AI takes over should a player get disconnected. There is also the option for private matches by invitation from your friends list and custom set up options too.

Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 introduces players to a new mechanic called Hexproof (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/magic-the-gathering-duels-of-the-planeswalkers-2012-introduces-hexproof), which will be featured in the Magic:the Gathering 2012 Core Set. You can see Hexproof on M12's Dungrove Elder (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/m12-dungrove-elder). Many cards featured in the game will also be in M12, such as Furyborn Hellkite (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/m12-furyborn-hellkite), Serra Angel (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/m12-serra-angel), and Sengir Vampire (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/m12-sengir-vampire). M12 will be available on retail shelves this July 15th.
The only disappointment that I encountered during my review of Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 were a few bugs. For example, Flameborn Hellion has haste and must attack if able, however in one game of Archenemy against Koth the computer played a Flameborn Hellion during the first main phase, attacked with an Earth Elemental (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281821#main), and didn't attack with Flameborn Hellion. In one of the game's puzzle challenges, an Ashen Monstrosity (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281801#main) enchanted with Flight (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281831#main) was blocked by Harbor Serpant (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281836#main), and in a separate multiplayer match Proliferate didn't trigger on a successfully cast Spread the Sickness (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/mentioned-the-review-picture?slide=34281981#main).

Please note that Stainless Games has reassured me that they are working hard to resolve these and any other issues that are found with the game as soon as possible with a patch.
For less than the price of a booster draft, one can easily spend hundreds of hours with this title. If you needed another reason to buy the game, those who purchase Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 will be able to receive one of three (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/magic-the-gathering-duels-of-the-planeswalkers-2012-promotional-foils) new alternate art promotional foils: Grave Titan (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/magic-the-gathering-duels-of-the-planeswalkers-2012-grave-titan-xbla-promo), Inferno Titan (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/magic-the-gathering-duels-of-the-planeswalkers-2012-inferno-titan-ps3-promo), or Frost Titan (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-boston/magic-the-gathering-duels-of-the-planeswalkers-2012-frost-titan-steam-promo) (while supplies last).

It doesn't matter if you are new to Magic or an experienced veteran - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 has something for everyone.

Sounds good, fixed the one thing i didnt like (the deck editing system, or lack off) and created a mode that essentially demands human play. Thanks Kai, great info!

06-13-2011, 02:54 PM
Yay another bag of info, great and thanks.
I think it will be OK with that deck customisation, at least we won't see anymore 70-80+ cards deck and a random amount of lands..

Hopefully both campaign and archenemy can be done through xbox live too :)

About those 2 decks.. oh well.. i think there are plenty more ways to sneak Simic in play much more early and i'm not a big fan of white aggro deck so..

I really would like to know Tezzeret's decklist right now..

Looks like planeswalker cards won't be in there unfortunately, right?

They didn't come up in that review, but, the previous game got 3 DLC packs, so, maybe they might be added down the line?

I will post up more info as i come across it ;)

Black Barney
06-13-2011, 03:58 PM
thanks for the info!

Do you know if the land ratio is fixed based on number of cards in deck or average casting cost of deck?

I can't wait for this game. I love the first one and found it to have surprising amount of balance (some decks are unplayable, but I think there were several viable decks and not just vampire as many tend to say)

This deck customization option isn't perfect but it's a huge improvement. I'm sure we'll all find 16 cards that have GOT TO GO out of each core deck.

Ask and you shall recieve, i have found some more info ;)


And speaking of mythics, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 has a serious attitude when it comes to power compared to the last version. These decks as a whole are tuned up and terrifying compared to the fare found in the original DOTP. Speaking of the decks, let’s take a look at what Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 has to offer deckwise .

Gideon Jura “Wielding Steel” – Gideon’s deck is a mono-white steel storm featuring fast, aggressive creatures backed up with dangerous equipment. Stoneforge Mystic (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=198383), Sword of War and Peace (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/sword-of-war-and-peace-new-phyrexia), Baneslayer Angel (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=205077), Argentum Armor (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/scars-of-mirrodin-argentum-armor), and Commander card Archangel of Strife (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/archangel-of-strife-a-classic-commander-card) are some iconic selections from this deck.

Garruk “Apex Predators” – A traditional mono-green “play a bunch of dangerous creatures and use Overrun (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/overrun-or-overwhelming-stampede)” deck, Garruk’s DOTP 2012 package now has a Thrun, the Last Troll (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/thrun-the-last-troll), Dungrove Elder (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/hexproof-and-dungrove-elder-magic-2012), and multiple Overrun cards to help run over opponents.

Chandra “Unquenchable Fire” – Chandra returns with a mono-red burn deck, full of direct damage, Kiln Fiends (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/kiln-fiend-fiendeshly-good-fun), an Inferno Titan (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/m11-inferno-titan), Flameblast Dragon (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=220458), and even a Wheel of Fortune (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=202558) to rekindle the flames of an empty had.

Tezzeret “Machinations” – A white/blue/black mesh of metalcraft, featuring Steel Overseer (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/m11-steel-overseer) inspired armies and a Darksteel Colossus (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=191312).

Sorin Markov “Blood Hunger” – Sorin brings a mono-black vampire deck to the table once again, outfitted with some of the brand new M12 bloodthirst vampires, Vampire Nocturnus (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=191384), Vampire Nighthawk (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=185707), and plenty of removal.

Sarkhan “Dragons Roar” – Like dragons? Sarkhan’s black/red deck sports Volcanic Dragon (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=21020), Rorix Bladewing (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=205371), Hellkite Charger (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=220468), dragon buffing spells and enchantments, goblins on the ground and fire in the sky.

Nissa “Guardians of the Wood” – A black/green tribal elf deck with all the trimmings, featuring Imperious Perfect (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=158123), Heedless One (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=158113), and Maelstrom Pulse (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=180613).

Koth “Strength of Stone” – A mono-red Elemental path to victory, featuring Grim Lavamancer (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=234706), Conquering Manticore (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/rise-of-the-eldrazi-conquering-manticore), Magma Phoenix (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=208003), Cerebral Eruption (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=215073), and a variety of creatures born from earth and fire.

Jace “Realm of Illusion” – Mono-blue illusion tribal deck featuring the all new Lord of the Unreal and some downright scary ethereal creatures, backed up with Time Warp (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=191379), Mind Control (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/m11-mind-control), Counterspell (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=202437), and card draw. This is a serious, serious deck.

Kiora Atua “Ancient Depths” – Blue/Green ramp into some of Timmy’s favorite monstrosities. Unleash Eldrazi, Primeval Titan (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/m11-primeval-titan), and a variety of horrors from the briny deeps. Commander’s Edric, Spymaster of Trest (http://www.examiner.com/magic-the-gathering-in-national/edric-spymaster-of-trest-commander) also makes an appearance here.

Another review with some more insight ;)

This one looks more at the coop and archenemy :D


As far as decks and deck-building go, the decks are reasonably varied in color and playstyle. Some decks make a return from the first game with a reasonable amount of card changes to make it feel somewhat different (e.g. Sorin’s vampire deck and Gideon’s weapon deck), but the overall theme is preserved. Some decks are radically altered from the first game in both cards and theme (e.g. Jace has an illusion creature deck now instead of focusing on interrupts), and some decks are completely new to DotP 2012 (e.g. there’s now a mixed blue and green deck).

A couple of decks and planeswalkers are noticeably absent from DotP 2012, such as Elspeth’s pure white deck with fliers and Liliana’s pure black deck with discards, but hopefully there’s enough variety with the ten decks in the game that you can find a couple decks you like. Though I heard rumors that the deck-building would be a little more free in DotP 2012, as far as I can tell it’s the same as in the first game. You can take cards out of the preset decks (but your deck must be at least 60 cards), but that appears to be as far as customization goes.

ugh, I had no idea that they were bringing the SAME decks back with some tweaks. That's SUPER disappointing. I was hoping for 10-12 brand new decks.

Man, and they bring back the vampire deck which people seemed to hate but they don't bring back the fun decks like mono-white (beastly in multiplayer) and mono-black-discard which was so much fun to play against cuz it was different.

Yikes, that's a bit disappointing but I can't wait to buy the game anyway. Hopefully the decks will be very different. Chandra's deck in particular I hope is very different since it's so dull to play. Having to win 16 matches with that thing will be hell :(

06-14-2011, 03:05 PM
Thanks again for sharing the info!

At this point i think there won't be any planeswalker card in there, probably because they would have some huge problems balancing and fitting them into their decks.

Decks are OK imo, we can't actually say they're the same as the first game, new cards makes new mechanics, and new ways to win the game.

Deck customisation is fine, at least for what i understood: you can customize it only with the cards you unlocked for that deck, switching the "regular" ones (that's the real "news" about deck customization: my deck won't be a 70-80+ cards deck anymore, woohoo!).

yay Sengir Vampire in the vampire deck! That ommission in Sorin's deck in Magic 2011 was one of the weirdest deck choices ever

Dark Knight1990

Interesting... proliferate in Sorin's deck. That'll be a game changer for sure with all the bloodthirst vamps.

06-15-2011, 02:07 AM
Is it releasing Midnight eastern time or sometime later in the morning?

06-15-2011, 03:59 AM
New XBLA releases are usual up around 5am EST (2am PST)
