Hello Everyone,

We just received word from Wizards of the Coast about new features for Magic 2014 (available on almost every platform imaginable). In the release they just sent me they touch on two new major points:

Sealed Play:
It appears in Magic 2014 deck building will be an option. This has been something fans have been asking for since the inception of the series, and now it will finally be included. It appears this is not a Magic Online experience, but rather sealed events. We will provide more details as we have them. This is really exciting to me as sealed events are by far my favorite way to play Magic. Woohoo!
Here is the exact wording from the press release for you to ponder on:
Quote:
The addition of Sealed Play will allow players to open booster packs and build decks to play against the AI and other players. Each sealed pool is comprised of 84 cards, mimicking paper TCG booster packs. The PvE experience includes a six-deck ladder where players take on mono-colored Sealed decks each corresponding with a particular Planeswalker, and finally facing a ‘boss’ Sealed deck.
Slivers:
It appears the Sliver creature type will be part of the 2014 set. They mention it will be a "new take." We will have to see what that means.
Here is a list from the release of some Sliver related cards:

Quote:
A fan-favorite, new playable Slivers in Magic 2014 decks will include the following:

− Sliver Construct
− Predatory Sliver
− Groundshaker Sliver
− Megantic Sliver
− Blur Sliver
− Striking Sliver
− Thorncaster Sliver
− Battle Sliver
− Sentinel Sliver
− Bonescythe Sliver

In addition, Hive Stirrings, a sorcery that creates Sliver tokens, will also be included in Magic 2014.
