By   /   Jul 14, 2014

The first time I was introduced to Magic: The Gathering, it wasn’t through their classic brownish cards that every young set of gathered guys and gals would be playing with.

In fact, it was just a year ago that Magic: The Gathering’s mesmerizing idea of merging classic fantasy lore with attractive and in-depth card-game mechanics came to my knowledge.

It was my cousin, excitedly tilting his iPad to show me glimpses of what seemed like well-executed animations that complemented a brilliant yet easy-on-the-eyes design of a card game.

My interest immediately piqued, and after a few hours of fiddling and grinding through the rather steep learning curve, I was hooked up to the extent that time suspended, and my cousin had to actually request me to hand his iPad back.

It was through Magic 2013 that I learned about what those brownish cards actually meant, and why youngsters and adults alike would invest hours of spare time in experiencing the challenging yet captivating experience Magic: The Gathering brought.

The card game further got new a new edition in the form of Magic 2014, keeping all that was positive about its predecessor while adding exciting new cards and features.

Magic: The Gathering is taking a step forward once again, with their brand-new Magic 2015 game set to hit the Xbox Live Arcade, the PC on Steam, Android, iOS, and will also make it to the Kindle’s own Amazon Marketplace.

It’s not just a simple annual reiteration – Magic 2015 plans to both renovate and evolve from its predecessor to bring forth a further refined and competitive card-game to your device of choice.

You’ll have access to a brand-new deck collection model, which players can, for the first time, fully customize to suit their own style of play right from scratch, with a robust deck builder to give more privileged assistance to the users.

Not only that, you’ll also get a first look at the cards from the Magic 2015 Core Set, which releases this summer. The Core Set will contain a whopping 269 cards, with 15 of them designed using the specialties of some of the best artists available in the gaming industry.

Those who have had the luxury of experiencing Magic 2013 and 2014 would know of the game’s captivating depth and system, and should be looking forward to the enhancements and newer additions that come in Magic 2015, which promises to be even more complete, maintaining fidelity of the core mechanics of the gameplay, while integrating new content without sacrificing the philosophy.

If you’re yet to experience the digital version of the Magic: The Gathering card game, you shouldn’t hesitate to invest your time in familiarizing yourself by playing Magic 2015.

The game doesn’t presume you have transitioned from its predecessors, and will actually aid you in settling into the system, becoming familiar with the philosophy, and understanding the gameplay mechanics.

It certainly takes some time to wrap your head around the depth and flexibility of the game, but once you’ve managed to attune your understanding towards it, you’ll be hooked – not that it’s a bad thing of course, since the technicalities involved in Magic: The Gathering are certainly healthy exercises for your neurons and the development of glial cells.
