I am familiar with how sideboarding works in the actual gameplay in the real world, where you set 15 cards aside that you can use in-between matches, but how does it factor into the 360 and PS3 version? Is it exactly the same? Do you know can it be used in the Single Player Campaign as well? I have sent a question to MTG Tech, but thought I might get a quicker response here? And NO this is not like "Waterboarding" inmates..LOL
How Does Sideboarding Work in Magic The Gathering on XBLA and PSN game?(4 posts)
I don't recall any such feature.
Nothing really happens between matches, you can switch and edit your deck, select an opponent, that's it.
In play you can only play the cards in your hand and the ones you draw. There is no special "aside" set of 15 cards.

Actually you are wrong, there is such a feature. Now I don't know if you have to own Expansion Pack 3, but I have all the DLC for Magic The Gathering on Xbox 360
At the Main Menu, Press Y, this takes you to Deck manager Press X to Edit Deck. Then go to the End of your cards or the ones Highlighted in Yellow. On the Lower left side above Unlock Deck and Make Premium Options it States "Sideboard" You can move your Highlighted Yellow cards into the Sideboard by pressing A
Just want to know the function of this in the XBLA version and how it works.
Well sideboarding is only relevent if your playing a proper best of 3 duel, which (unless such an option was added to mp in pack 3) DotP doesn't do. I think it is just the name they give to the cards you remove from the deck to make it sound more MTG.
Also, I reveiwed this game way back when it came out, and I can safely say WotC are not the people to contact... Check with Stainless Games, the Isle of Wight based dev who made the game (and Carmageddon!), I found them stupidly helpfull!
