[top]Roadmap

Step 1: Play through and complete the Single Player Campaign and Revenge Campaign.

Play through the regular Campaign; here you'll face the five new Planeswalkers and their decks. After beating each Planeswalker, you'll unlock their corresponding deck and once you defeat all five, you'll unlock the Revenge Campaign.

The Revenge Campaign is the same as the normal Campaign, only now each Planeswalker has access to their full decks, meaning they have all of the cards unlocked. Once you finish the Revenge Campaign you'll get the Guildmage trophy.

Step 2: Win an Online game with one of the five new decks and complete the other trophy requirements.

[top]Tips & Strategies

  • Trophies are listed in XMB order.
  • The biggest and probably most useful tip or strategy to use while playing the game is to take advantage of the button which stops the timer. Do this whenever someone plays a card you're not familiar with and read the description. This leads to point number 2.

  • Use the button to zoom in on a specific card and read its ability. This often goes hand in hand with the first tip. Once you press to stop the timer, select the card and then press to zoom in and read its ability.

  • Don't be afraid to mulligan (see spoiler below for definition). If you start off with a bad hand, mulligan and draw a new one hoping it ends up being better. However, if you have to mulligan several times in a row its better off just restarting the duel.

  • Always try to act last in each altercation. The chance to go last means that your spell/ability will resolve before the spells/abilities that are already being played. This is known as FILO (First in, Last Out) and using this to your advantage will make many of the more difficult tasks easier.

[top]Trophies

[top]
Guildmage
Defeat the Sepulchral Strength deck in the revenge campaign

Once you defeat all five Planeswalkers in the regular campaign of the expansion, you'll unlock the revenge campaign. After doing so, you'll have to defeat all five Planeswalkers again but be warned, they'll now have access to their full decks, meaning they have all of the cards unlocked.

Once you defeat the last Planeswalker, Golgari, you'll unlock the Guildmage trophy.

[top]
Auramancer
Win a duel controlling at least five Auras

The best deck to use when going for this trophy is the Aura Servants deck which must first be unlocked by defeating Azorius in the Expansion Campaign. Also, to make earning the trophy even easier, you can win against one of the Encounter challenges from the regular campaign instead of a Planeswalker match.

With the Aura Servant deck, you'll easily come across enough Aura Enchantment cards to have the five minimum that's required for the trophy. Once the duel starts, simply play your Aura Enchantment cards on creatures like Invisible Stalker or Kor Spiritdancer which will either be unblockable or get buffed to be become very big very fast.

Fury of the Horde
Win a duel controlling at least twenty creatures

The best deck to use when going for this trophy is the Collective Might deck which must be first be unlocked by defeating Selesnya in the Expansion Campaign. Also, to make earning the trophy even easier, you can win against one of the Encounter challenges from the regular campaign instead of a Planeswalker match.

Because this deck focuses mainly on getting creature tokens onto the battlefield, you should have no problem controlling more than 20 creatures as tokens also count towards your total. By playing cards like Selesnya Evangel, Nemata, Grove Guardian, Sprout, and Jade Mage with Parallel Lives in play you'll quickly reach 20 creatures.

[top]
Near-Death Experience
Win a duel with exactly 1 life

The best deck to use when going for this trophy is Chandra's Born of Flame deck. Also, to make earning the trophy even easier, you can win against one of the Encounter challenges from the regular campaign instead of a Planeswalker match. Once you start the match, make sure that you have Simple Targeting turned off in the options menu. By doing so, you'll be able to target yourself and creatures you control with your own spells and abilities. Thus enabling you to do direct damage to your own life total, bringing yourself down to one much more quickly.

If you can get Prodigal Pyromancer out early, you'll make unlocking the trophy very easy, especially if you're playing against one of the earlier and easier Encounter challenges. Other cards to look out for include Searing Spear, Flames of the Firebrand, and Chandra's Outrage.

Insurrection
Win a duel online using an expansion deck

In order to go for this trophy, you first have to unlock at least one of the new five decks by beating the other Planeswalkers in the Expansion Campaign. After doing so, pick one of the new decks that you feel the most comfortable with and play any of the various game types as long as its online. Simply win one match and the trophy is yours.

Alternatively, you can join the official MTG 2013 boosting thread and find someone to play against online and have them concede the match to easily get the trophy.
