I suspect the "secret bonus feature" of the PC version will be deck customization.
I love Duels of the Planeswalkers and am excited they are planning more expansions!
This is a very positive and exciting announcement, particularly as the other game recently announced for the PC and PS3 seems not to be as similar to the card game.
Coming up with weird ideas to make everyone happy since 2008!
I have now started a blog as an appropriate place to put my crazy ideas.
I still wish WOTC would embrace MACs...
I'm excited for this.
I mostly play with my wife, and sometimes I have a craving when she's not around or not interest. I don't own an x-box and often just want to play a quick game or two without going down to the shop or dealing with the heavy online competition and costs.
Also I hope decks can be customized. That's easily one of my favorite parts of the game. Building something then testing it out.
I wonder if they will consider making a PSP version. Being able to play Magic everywhere I go is really important to me :P
Look forward to getting this game on pc
Still not interested, until the option to take cards out of the decks exists.
However, the next version of MTGO is being developed in Silverlight, meaning it runs in browsers. So while you may not get DotP on a PSP, we might not be far from playing full unrestricted Magic from the accessibility of a smartphone.
If you're on MTGO check out the Free Events via PDCMagic and Gatherling.
Other games you should try:DC Universe Online - action-based MMO. Free to play. Surprisingly well-designed combat and classes.
Planetside 2 - Free to play MMO-meets-FPS and the first shooter I've liked in ages.Simunomics - Free-to-play economy simulation game.
They are not going to make a cheaper alternative to MTGO. Sorry, but I am afraid that deck customisation is an impossible dream...
Still seems like fun, though. I don't own an X-Box, so... Fun.

Now, if you'd like to go back to the main Magic General 'forum' page (that's the one that lists all the different 'discussion threads' that people have 'posted') from this page, just press the up-arrow key on your keyboard until you reach the top of the page, then click the link that says "Magic General"--it should be in fairly small font, just above the buttons labeled "Post Reply" and "Subscribe" and the box labeled "Jump Menu", but below the blue link labeled "Preferences". It'll be in a line with a number of other small-font links with different names.
From the 'forum' page you will be able to select another 'thread' to view; 'threads' that people have 'posted' to since you last looked at them will have their names listed in bold font and have the number of unread replies listed just to the right of the name. If you click that unread replies number, it will take you right to the last reply you viewed in the 'thread' so that you can continue reading all the new replies from there. To get back to the main Magic General 'forum' page, just repeat the process from the previous paragraph--don't worry if you're on a different page, all 'thread' pages will have the same basic layout, so it should work exactly the same on any page in the Magic General 'forum'.\
And remember, if you accidentally click on the wrong link and find yourself on a page you're not familiar with, there's no need to panic; you can always press the 'back' button in your browser to go back to whatever you were looking at before. It should be on the left-hand side near the top of the screen, just below the menu bar, and will probably have a picture of some kind of arrow pointing to the left on it.
Hope that helps!

So the next time someone says Competitive Constructed decks are not the only decks that count in Constructed (Casual Constructed), then I can gleefully point to the definition set forth by WotC and say that Competitive Constructed is in deed the only ones that count, and that they are playing some irregular form of Magic.

Then a giant meteorite struck the earth, good bye dinosaurs. But what if the dinosaurs weren't all destroyed? What if the impact of that meteorite created a parallel dimension where the dinosaurs continue to thrive and evolve into intelligent vicious aggressive beings? What if they found a way back? ....wait that's not what happened to the fun cards that's the intro to the mario brothers movie. Get those two confused all the time, my bad.

In fall, expect to open some packs and find cards covered in goopy, black oil.
It's all about the marketing angle, people.
If it's cheap enough I might get it, even though I rarely buy video games in the summer months. I don't have a console so all I have seen of it are screenshots and some video footage, but I'd be interested. It depends on where my head is with the game. But putting my own situation aside, I think it is great that they are making this available on more platforms.
Being a collector, I think I will buy the new Duels of the Planeswalker decks. But.... I have a question. I thought the cards in the decks had the old M in a circle icon. I looked up the cards on the Products Page and when you click on their picture none of them have this icon. I don't want to get these decks if they are just a mix of old sets, because I already have those cards! Will they have a different icon or not?
