Mage wars or summoner wars?

Both these games look intriguing to me, and I will probably end up picking one of them up. What do you guys think about each of these titles?

I've never played either, but they both seem pretty similar. It seems like summoner wars is a little more accessible, but mage wars seems like its a little more deep. I think I might like mage wars more, but I'd probably get more opportunity to play summoner wars, and it seems easier to teach people.


Anyways, if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, it would be appreciated.

Summoner Wars IMO
Plays much much faster
Easier to teach
Easier to play
Better resource mechanics
Several factions that all play way different
Doesn't take several turns/time to get going
Quicker setup/ tear down


I wouldn't say Mage Wars is deeper, just more complex rules.
