Magic 2015 coming July 16

Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers, the next iteration of Wizards of the Coast's annual digital collectible card game, is coming on July 16. Pre-purchases have opened on Steam as well, with different tiers of prices that include different goodies.

The Steam page lists three packs. The base level is $9.99, for the game and one Premium Booster pack. A Special Edition for $19.99 includes a soundtrack, wallpapers, and the eBook Theros; Godsend, Part 1. The Complete Bundle for $34.99 grants you 300 foil stickers and five card collections: Innistrad, Theros, Ravnica, Shandalar, and Zendikar.

We were pretty impressed by some of the ways Magic is trying to take on Hearthstone this year, most notably with a deck building helper that seems much smarter than the one in Blizzard's CCG. Soon we'll be able to see how it stacks up.
