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.

Gatecrash is here, and Gideon is causing trouble in the City of Guilds. Two new event decks have arrived: ready to play 60-card decks with a 15-card sideboard.

Here are the two Event Decks in a (cough) double decker review. Hopefully something here tickles your fancy.

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?

If you have ever played a game of Magic against me, you have probably felt the sting of my white weenie deck. If you have, you will probably like this intro pack. If not, you probably have no idea what the hell I am on about. Let me clarify. Imagine waves of tiny creatures advancing over your foes, helping each other become a lethal fighting force. This is exactly what Path to Victory is all about.
