Warning: the following might be complete gibberish to you if you have never touching a card from Magic: The Gathering. If you haven't, that's okay. We're a geek support group that is here to help you. If you need a crash course in the phenomenon that is Magic, we suggest you check out Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 on XBLA, PSN, PC, or iOS and immerse yourself into some fantasy-based, card-gaming nerdery. Or you can stroll into your local board game store, and step up to the bar and ask them "What the hell is this Magic stuff all about, anyhow." They will derisively sneer at you, and then initiate you into your newfound addiction.
Of course, if you already know Magic, then this is all moot. Magic 2014 - Duels of the Planeswalkers is on the way to those same systems again, along with Android devices for the very first time, and the new Magic 2014 Core Set is coming as well, featuring many of the same cards and adding new features. Wizard of the Coast was good enough to send us this exclusive image of a new card from the set, which will be available in both Duels and the paper set. Looks like Young Pyromancers get to dabble in street fashion, while simultaneously burning things with their hands.
Read on for more details from the upcoming game, and start tapping some mana, baby.
