I was expecting this game to be complete ass and was pleasently surprised. The game is similar to its namesake in so much that certain mechanics are analogous (Counterspell works the same), and the cards come from the CCG but the game really could have had any motif put on it. There's some forthought required to play better than your average bear, though I claim to be no expert. Thinking about picking up a copy over the holidays or maybe on sale after New Years. Too many other games to play for me right now.
