It has its own set of rules, cards which can't be played in other Magic Decks, a different playmat, different backs.

However it looks to be set in the Magic Universe so I would say it is no less a Magic Card than Unglued or Unhinged.

Well, if you survived that experience I'll share the deck with you.... Hehe.

It is a Challenge Deck (whatever that is) and designed to be a solitary or cooperative Magic kinda game. Some likeness to Archenemy.

the backs of the cards are not Magic backs and the cards are not constructed like Magic cards, just cheap one layer stuff.

The other side is a playmat:

Actually I would look at it more as a difference in the quality of the material rather than the quality of the card.

The cards are made of a thin glossy material that just kinda reminds me of the Beta APs vs the t/t that are more of a pasteboard stuff.

Artwork is not really bad, it just isn't good.

I need to actually play the game with someone yet to see how that goes. I have heard that is is kinda fun and relaxing.

Bottom line, will they be included on the board or not. They certainly are more "magic cards" than some of the stuff here.

another decision for Alexis.

I see that the results of the vote are chaging as time passes. I wonder if that is because more people are actually seeing the deck.
