I know Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers isn’t the newest game out there, but it has remained one of the best selling XBLA games since its release, and at least one irrelevant Internet blogger loves it.
For anyone who hasn’t been patiently following along, Duels gets its 2nd DLC expansion tomorrow. Among the features are new cards, new decks, avatar awards and, most importantly, bug fixes, including host migration for multiplayer games. It’s all 400 MSP, so get it pronto!
