The letter H!ere's something new for Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012: new decks! Now, the details are a little complicated, because these are coming out at different times on different platforms. It's coming out on PC via Steam on November 16, and then on XBox and PS3 a little later.

And this is actually three separate releases. The first one, on November 16 (on Steam; other platforms will have other dates) consists of two 60-card decks with unlockable cards. Then there's another pair of decklists on December 14, and one on January 11. There will be ways to upgrade the decks to make them foil, but that, too, will vary by platform.

Oh, and one more thing before we get to the decklists. If you're playing Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 on Steam, and if you're on an Alienware laptop, you'll probably really enjoy the first decklist pack on November 16. It's going to include AlienFX Integration, so the cool LED lights in the keyboard and on the sides will do things. These will include:

  • Colors change dynamically as camera rotates to reflect background colors
  • When it is turn for the player or AI to ATTACK in the Combat Phase the Lights pulse red (medium speed) to match lighting in scene
  • If the player wins the Duel they will receive a fan fare of pulsing lights (Like Fireworks) to indicate a positive feel. These lights will pulse, White, Purple, Blue and Green quite quickly.
  • If the player loses the Duel the lights will pulse between White, Red and Black in a slower fashion to indicate a defeated feel

This decklist pack will be $2.99 on Steam or 240 Microsoft Points in the United States. On other platforms and in other countries, it will probaby be close to that but not precise. You know how it is.

And now, on with the decklists! For November 16 (on Steam), there's March to War (a red-white Soldiers deck) and Ghoulkeeper (black Zombies).
