Very well done. Great cards, great AI. But then again the lack of ability to created your own deck..

The game is very well done. All cards are well described, and the AI seems pretty good for nice hours of solo play. Everything is really great for the new players, but for veterans the lack of deck building again makes the whole experience ultimately pointless.

For example: for the vampire deck you can only unlock at most 1 Vampire Nocturnus, 2 Vampire Nighthawks and 2 Gatekeeper of Malakir. How can you play a vampire deck with so few copies of those staple cards? You can't. After some time you can't even have fun anymore against the AI with such a lame deck.

Many great cards were implemented this time, but only a few copies are usually unlocked, and some nice cards don't unlock at all - such as Abyssal Persecutor for instance, which only appears during a quick challenge game. I really can't see the point of not creating a deck edition module, at least for offline play. Veterans will probably be disappointed as I am.
