Magic Duels is a digital free-to-play Magic game that came out July, 2015 on Xbox One, PC via Steam, and iPad tablets. A release for PlayStation 4 was considered, but later canned. It is the successor to the Duels of the Planeswalkers series.
Magic Duels focuses on bringing in newcomers. Most of the learning comes through situational tips as you play.  As you play the game, you earn coins which you trade in for booster packs. If you want to get cards quicker, you can also buy coins, but all gameplay content is earnable just by playing.
Magic Duels launched with the new storyline featured in the Magic Origins set, and continued to expand with regular downloadable contents that reflects the then-upcoming sets, up to Amonkhet. The lead designer for Magic Duels: Origins is Drew Nolosco.
