Today Wizards of the Coast and Stainless Games released the first paid DLC for "Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013." This new expansion gives players five new multicolored "Magic: The Gathering" decks to play with: one for each guild in their upcoming expert expansion set "Return to Ravnica" (Azorius, Golgari, Izzet, Rakdos, and Selesnya). The expansion brings a whopping 50% additional content to the game, raising the total number of playable decks from 10 to 15.
The decks aren't the only new features added. There are also ten more single-player campaign levels, five new revenge campaign levels, five new "Magic" puzzle challenges, extra character portraits, and more.

According to a Magic Arcana by Monty Ashley on DailyMTG.com, there are no cards from "Return to Ravnica" in the decks; they use cards from the original "Ravnica: City of Guilds" block.
It'll be a safe bet that we'll see another DLC with five more decks from the other five guilds in "Gatecrash" plus more goodies in another three months.
Wizards of the Coast also recently distributed ten promotional DLC codes that unlock 100 cards total to the game's ten main decks.
Don't own "Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013?" You can download it for iPad, Steam, Xbox LIVE Arcade, and the PlayStation Network. Each version of the game comes with a redeemable code for one of three promotional booster packs and free sample deck of “Magic: The Gathering” at participating hobby stores.
