Gold Budle gives you all of the decks you get with the complete bundle. The extra 7.50 for the complete is all cosmetic foils that im pretty sure you can unlock in game. So I would say the best value is the Gold bundle for $10.

If you buy complete all decks be unlocked and if you buy gold you need to win games to unlock cards. Im still not sure if I shall buy complete or gold.

I am intrigued by this game but know nothing about it.
Can anyone recommend some source that gives a good overview of what the game entails?

Buy the "gold game" bundle. If you want the deck unlocks, then also buy the "gold deck bundle". The total price for both is 15.00. The "complete" bundle is 17.49, and the only thing extra it includes are the foil cards, which are worthless (cosmetic only, but also ugly and you'll eventually want to disable them).

If you aren't sure whether you want the deck unlocks or not, buy the gold game bundle, play the game for a day and unlock some cards and decide whether you want to keep unlocking them yourself or just buy the unlocks all at once.

Ive been playing real magic for years now, still have my current standard deck as we speak. this game is fun, great for beginners, and most of all the existing card pool,decks,expansion and blocks they come from are pretty good. If your a magic player, or trying to get in or back to the game, this is a must get!

Which pack do you recommend getting for newplayers?
da2x Mar 20, 2013 @ 2:47pm 
I recommend getting the gold bundle (10 dollars), as it has everything, and if your new, it would be a lot more fun if you unlock the cards yourselves rather than getting the complete pack, and also it will hone you more on the game, as for the deck, the rakdos one (red black) is pretty strong right off the bat, most of the decks on the core game itself (without the dlc and expansion's) are easy to use, so I'd start with those, bit of a spoiler, tarlands deck fully unlocked is pretty strong once set up, one of my favorites when i first played this game :)

The one on the Magic the gathering website that's the real magic card game. Called MTGO Online. $10.00 startup with free cards that have no value. But you can buy real cards in the software, and trade them with people. There's tournaments where you can win real money and cards. And drafts where 8 people all chip in and supply 3 packs each and you all choose a crd and pass the pack till you have a deck. You always keep the cards you pull in a draft, and if you're good at it you can basically play for free because you win in game tickets used to participate in drafts, buy sealed packs, and single cards to construct decks for playing online. And the community is huge. By far the best option.

Well, be prepared to spend hundreds of dollars if you're playing MTGO. Vs. 10 dollars for the gold game bundle here.

That it so true, might as well play real magic! And if you already are exposed and playing in tournaments, Im not sure why you would pay more money to digitize your cards

you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars, but you can easily if you choose. there is a format called pauper that is becoming more popular that uses only common cards. So basically you spend less than $1.00 on a deck. And with MTGO you have the flexibility to construct your own deck from a larger pool of cards. I admit though it can become expensive if you plan on making a tournament deck. But investing in one of those will win you lots of tickets if you play constructed drafts.

If you go into to it tohave fun, and not to be the best you can play for a fair amount of money, and after you have experience it is easier to distinguish expensive cards and manage to make decks selling draft cards at little to no cost. But it's not easy at first. And you can always play planeswalker format which is equal in cost to the deck packs here on the steam version and you still have more flexibility in constructing a deck.

I think MTGO is totally worth a try just for the planeswalker format to see if you like it. I recommend the Beta client software because it's a lot easier to use and better looking if you can run it.
