Added DiffLines:

** ''Magic Duels'': Wizards eventually stopped releasing yearly sequels, in favor of a single FreeToPlay game that receives regular updates, usually with new cards and story missions. Unlike a lot of other Free To Play card games, purchasing packs in ''Magic Duels'' will always give you new cards. Once you have four of a card (the max allowable in a deck), it is removed from the card pool. Otherwise it is very similar to the other ''Duels'' games.

* ''VideoGame/DuelsOfThePlaneswalkers'': A more modern adaptation available on [[{{PS3}} The Playstation Store]], XBox Live Arcade and UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}, originally released in 2009. It has received {{Numbered Sequel}}s in summer of each succeeding year, coinciding with new Core Set releases, and Wizards are [[InvokedTrope deliberately]] positioning it as their GatewaySeries to new players.
* ''Magic The Gathering Tactics'': A 2011 TurnBasedStrategy for PC and PlayStation3 inspired by ''Magic''. The gameplay bears little to no resemblance to the original card game, but the flavor of it is retained.

* The {{Mana}} system: To play their cards, players need the correct amount and color of mana, gained from land cards. At a stroke, this builds AwesomeButImpractical (more-powerful spells cost lots of mana) and LimitedMoveArsenal (decks with too many colors risk drawing the wrong lands and being unable to play any of their cards) straight into the game.

At the core of each deck is a duel between god-like wizards, the players themselves, known as "planeswalkers." Planeswalkers deploy a wide array of spells, creatures, artifacts, and enchantments (all represented by cards) as they vie to dominate [[TheMultiverse entire realms ("planes")]]--or, [[WatsonianVersusDoylist if you prefer]], to reduce the opponent's [[HitPoints life total]] to zero. Notable gameplay elements include:
