Magic Duels in 2016

The recent release of the Battle for Zendikar update marked the first step in the restatement of our commitment to making Magic Duels the great experience that you deserve.

In order to continue improving Magic Duels we have made the decision to revise our content release plan for 2016. This means that instead of the Oath of the Gatewatch update being available in January, players can expect it to be released in Magic Duels in April alongside content from the next Magic set, Shadows over Innistrad. With the Shadows over Innistrad update we will be back on track to delivering regular content updates aligned with Magic's paper set releases.

We'll share more information about the release of the combined Oath of the Gatewatch and Shadows over Innistrad update in the spring.

Thanks for your continued passion and support.
