Thinking about buying.
Is this game worth it? Can you customize your own deck? Are new packs released on the game often?

1. it's worth it; the game is outstanding.
2. depends on what you mean by customize. You get around 100 cards for each deck. You can trim each deck to 60 cards, so there is a lot of variation in deck builds. You cannot make your own deck from scratch.
3. all of the DLC for this version that will be released, has been released (I think). There's a 5 deck expansion and 3 2-deck deck packs, for a total of 21 decks. There is a ton of variety.

They put out the gold edition of 2012 this past March, so I'm guessing they will put out the gold edition of 2013 next month....so I would wait for that.

The game actually cheats a bit. More like glitches a bunch. The game suffers from terrible netcode and general bad programming. Don't buy it. I sunk 20 hours into it and I can tell you from crashing to desktop to not being able to block when I clearly should to having planer cards being targeted for attacks which do nothing and that you can't redirect. It's rather sad. All the DLC is poor at best as well. Don't buy it. Purchasing to unlock decks you should already have and foil versions have nothing special about them isn't the DLC I would want.

That said it's best played with friends who don't know magic all that well and will believe the game is right when it glitches and makes you do dumb things (like block an attack using a planer card).

Either way if you pick it up then enjoy it to the best of it's ability.

Cheaper way to play Magic (if u already played with the cards)
Decks are well-balanced in my opinion
U don't have to pay foil and to unlock all the cards.
Helpful community with some interesting guides
- Multiplayers bugs
Like dh50 says, there are many "strats" for playing each deck.

The game is great. Some times u get a bug, but it doesn't happens too often. The deck modification is limited, but a single deck can go from agro to control. Finaly, the decks are so well-balanced that every single battle is rememorable.

DLC dont ofers lots of change, but they realy worth their price.

Worth each buck.
I am at 370 hours playtime and stil play it every day. Sure it is buggy sometimes, but give me a PC game of the last year who isnt. So, just buy and enjoy ;=)
