Wizards of the Coast today announced two exciting new features coming to Magic 2014 – Duels of the Planeswalkers! Sealed Play and a new take on the popular Slivers creature type will both make their debut in the Duels of the Planeswalkers franchise with Magic 2014.
The addition of Sealed Play will allow players to open booster packs and build decks to play against the AI and other players. Each sealed pool is comprised of 84 cards, mimicking paper TCG booster packs. The PvE experience includes a six-deck ladder where players take on mono-colored Sealed decks each corresponding with a particular Planeswalker, and finally facing a ‘boss’ Sealed deck.
Another feature debuting in Magic 2014 is a new take on the popular Slivers creature type. A fan-favorite, new playable Slivers in Magic 2014 decks will include the following:
− Sliver Construct
− Predatory Sliver
− Groundshaker Sliver
− Megantic Sliver
− Blur Sliver
− Striking Sliver
− Thorncaster Sliver
− Battle Sliver
− Sentinel Sliver
− Bonescythe Sliver
In addition, Hive Stirrings, a sorcery that creates Sliver tokens, will also be included in Magic 2014.
You can find some new screenshots from the game here.
The Magic 2014 – Duels of the Planeswalkers video game will be available for PC, Xbox Live Arcade, PSN, iPad, and Android tablet for the first time when it launches this summer. The Magic 2014 product line-up also includes the Magic 2014 – Core Set for the paper trading card game (TCG) and Magic Online.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need anything else.

In addition, visitors who attend the opening night celebration on April 26th will have the opportunity to meet some of Magic R&D’s most creative minds, including Senior Designer Mark Rosewater and Senior Director of Magic R&D Aaron Forsythe.
Please let me know if you need anything else and, in the meantime, I’ve included some additional information about the exhibit below.
About the EMP’s Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic Exhibit:
Organized by EMP Museum, Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic is the first exhibition of its kind to examine the proliferation of the fantasy genre in literature, film, television, and video games. From classic folklore to epic tales of good and evil, the exhibition content spans more than four centuries and includes an authentic 16th century suit of armor, rare costumes from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, and original hand-edited manuscript pages from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Contemporary works are also featured with artifacts from Xena: Warrior Princess, Game of Thrones, and the Harry Potter series.

There are so many bad things that happen in the world today, that when you see something genuinely good, there are almost no words to describe the beauty.
You do not need to speak the language, to see the warmth,beauty, love, and kindness of strangers. Watch as a young street magician, makes a homeless mans day. The smile on that mans face will surely bring tears to your eyes, as it did mine. After finishing his trick, and making the world just a little bit brighter, the young man simply walks away.
There is a story that has been around for many years, about a wise man sitting on the beach, when he notices a child that looks like they are dancing on the beach. He has to see the joyousness just a little closer, but when he approaches the child, he sees that the boy is not dancing, but instead throwing starfish back into the ocean. The wise man asks the boy “Why are you throwing them into the ocean?” The boy responds “The tide is going out and the sun is getting hotter, if I do not save them, they will surely die” The wise man thinks upon this for a moment and then says “There are miles and miles of beach, surely you do not believe you can make a difference?” As the young boy picks up another starfish returning it to the ocean, he simply replies “It made a difference for that one.”
How do we go about the monumental task of changing the world? We do it by reaching out, with kindness, hope, and love. Touching one heart, one soul at a time.
