Magic 2012 Wants More Virtual Cards for More Cash

Magic geeks get another set of cards to play with, only a month after the last set came about.

Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 is another game by Wizards of the Coast that aims to take your hard-earned cash for more toys to play with. The Steam, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade game now has a second deck pack with two new decks. A Black/White Angels and Demons deck (I foresee mana screw in this deck) and a Green Treefolk deck, which brings the the total number of playable decks up to 17.

Having been only a month since the last deck pack came out, does this hint at monthly downloadable content? I hope not, I struggle to pay for the cards I draft horribly in Innistrad.

It doesn’t seem that Wizards themselves have acknowledged this; there is no announcement on their website and no addition of these cards, or the previous two deck’s cards, in it’s exclusive Planeswalker format on Magic the Gathering Online. This pack costs 240MSP and $2.99 (£1.99, €2.99) on Steam.
