Magic: The Gathering finally allows custom decks

I used to play quite a bit of Magic: The Gathering in my youth. It was always social, never at any sort of competitive level -  though I stopped playing around bout the time I discovered how much fun boobs (and yes, the people they were attached to) could be. I’ve thus enjoyed the digital version of the game immensely; where it’s found a home on my tablet. It’s always had one rather big negative though; the lack of a genuinely customisable deck. That’s changed with Magic 2015.

MtG Duel Deck review: Izzet vs Golgari – Steam and Fetid Gas

Steam, blistercoils and mizzium-spheres are some of the favourite toys of the inventive and exploding Izzet guild. They care nothing for rules in the way of their quest for knowledge. However, was disturbing the hordes of the Golgari really the smartest move?

This is exactly what Path to Victory is all about.
