The introduction of the "End Step" to "Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013" is a significant advance in aligning the game closer to its paper counterpart.

According to a post by WotC_Microbless on the web forums:

"In Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, you now have a proper End Step!

For those new to Duels and/or Magic, the end step is one final step after the main phase that more advanced players will enjoy. This will allow them to use instants, search for things and do more before the next turn. This is particularly useful with cards like Evolving Wild which lets you search for a basic land. With the End Step, I could do this at the end of my opponents turn now and have my land ready to go for my turn."

"Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013" features cards from the "Magic 2013 Core Set" and "Planechase (2012 Edition)."
