Magic the Gathering: Arena won't have trading to create a "unique digital experience"

Wizards of the Coast say changes to card packs and trading in Magic The Gathering: Arena, are part of an attempt to balance the game’s economy. In a press conference, executive producer Chris Cao said that the changes were also part of an attempt to differentiate the game’s digital format from the tabletop card game.

Here's how Magic the Gathering: Arena can compete with Hearthstone and Artifact.

While Cao says that the development team have tried to capture “authentic Magic,” ahead of the closed beta, “the experiences are different.” As a result, the digital game has had to be altered “to serve that medium best.” While trading was something the studio reportedly discussed at length, Cao says that the system “is a hallmark of the paper game,” and an attempt to create a unique digital experience inspired by the tabletop game (rather than a pure simulation) lead to some mechanics being removed in favour of others.
