Game mechanics

As far as gameplay goes, Magic: The Gathering Arena isnít any different from previous adaptations of Wizards of the Coastís card game. Players create their decks with cards representing spell, creatures, artifacts etc., each belonging to one of five colors. Then they face each other in duels and play cards by spending mana points (represented by the so-called lands) to reduce opponentís energy to zero. The game features all rules and cards from the original Magic: The Gathering.
