    Nah I don't want to eBay. My thinking was more along the line of that I prefer the "Pay-for-Beta-Access" model that some developers are going down.

    I have a friend in the Beta and he said that it is not allowed by Blizzard which means it's a no no for Tog too.

    Blizzard emailed a beta key to me today, so it seems a new wave of invitations has started.

    Congrats guys! I am desperate for one as I've been watching this for a while I love watching all the streams and it looks a lot of fun! I even started playing MTG on iPad while I wait :) I still enjoy Scrolls but the design and simplicity of Hearthstone really appeals.

    Btw - I recommend TotalBiscuit's Lord of The Arena series on his YouTube or Force Strategy's stream. Also check Twitch for loads of ppl playing like TrumpSC and Kripparian.

    For some reason I thought this would be available on iphone :( Looks cool but I cant see it getting any gameplay over Call of Duty. Sad Jugs. I wish someone else could have used my beta key.

    They are building an iPad client, currently in internal testing.

    I managed to get a key of my flat mate as she was giving one the other day. I played for a few hours then spent 60 nzd for 40 packs and to be honest i think it was well worth the cost. I only managed two legendary cards but with all the golden cards rares and epics it has made building decks so much easier and is helping out a lot when i am pvping. My only issue now is i have to many cards i want to put in my decks and not enough space for them.

    I'm on the hunt for a beta key myself. Been watching TotalBiscuits lord of the arena on the train and just itching to give it a go myself!

    Ahh very good, thankyou :) I've been giving this a run over the past few days just to try it out and now Im completely hooked. I dropped $50 on card packs last night, and with another single deck purchase I managed to get 3 Legendary cards out of pure luck. I've spent every spare minute on the net looking up decks and guides etc etc.. Bloody video games! :p

    A great video series to learnt he game and card values is run by "Chairman" on youtube and each week they go through every card specific to classes and value how good the card is a quick run down of why it is good or bad etc.

    Great info for people learning the rope such as myself.

    Yay! I got a key.

    So far I've spent about 10 hours in the game, still loving it.

    Not convinced I'll spend money on it yet, getting 2 packs a week through Daily Quests seems ok so far.

    Glad you are enjoying it :) I got over it pretty quick, found it too simple compared to MTG. Also, people who've spent $ on the game will have better cards, and therefore be able to beat you easily if you don't spend $. So i'll pass for now. My wife is really enjoying it though. Been playing every second she can! :O

    Arena removes the balance of those who buy packs for legendaries, but sadly the entry cost is too high if you dont get a decent amount of wins for gold rewards.

    I am still looking forward to it. I know it won't have the complexity of MTG but with a baby on the way the idea of having a simple card game, that i can play quickly on an ipad and still have some level of thought will be awesome.

    I am also looking at Hex TCG when it comes out. It might be more up your alley Peej as it feels like MTG and has some MMORPG aspects to it as well.

    Thoroughly loving the beta. It leaves MTGO's sub-par client for dead and the game is quick and fun. It still needs some tweaking, and they are balancing heavily but I'm enjoying myself as a jump-in, jump-out game.

    Doing the dailies nets you gold for Arenas but I have lashed out real cash for Arena as well because it's fun. I've scored quite a few gold cards, they look fantastic and last night pulled a golden Ysera after I hit 3 losses with my Arena deck.

    I'd recommend the game to anyone that likes TCGs (I still have my MTG cards that go back to Beta/UL/Arabian Nights :) ).
