Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, also known as Duels 2013 is a digital Magic game that came out June 20, 2012 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Microsoft Windows and (for the first time) iPad. [1] [2]

Description[edit | edit source]

Duels 2013 is the sequel to Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012.

Purchasers of the game received access to a coupon which could be redeemed for a 6-card sampler of Magic 2013 cards. Duels 2013 received a number of upgrades from previous iterations of the series. [3] It launched with manual mana tapping, a deeper stat tracking system, the inclusion of an end step, and a more balanced and cohesive roster of decks. The Duels of the Planeswalkers video games were now meant to be a gateway product for new players to be introduced to Magic. Thus, Duels 2013 and M13 were developed and designed with each other in mind. [4] [5] [6] Both used the same art, referencing the big bad of the sets: Nicol Bolas.

The Planechase format was featered as a multiplayer option.

Expansion[edit | edit source]

The Ravnica expansion for Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 featured five two-color decks, five added single-player campaign levels and five single-player revenge campaign levels, five additional challenges, and additional persona portraits, achievements and trophies to unlock. [7]
