Etherlords- how is it?

I saw these just pop up on steam, and they look pretty interesting. Anyone have any thoughts on them?

I have both games on disc (will probably buy them on Steam). Honestly, they're quite good. They play somewhat like a simplified version of the old Microprose Magic the Gathering game. If you never played that, basically, Etherlords is pretty much the card-based combat style of MtG, combined with the world map strategic play of Heroes of Might & Magic.

It's one of the better card-based combat games I've played.

There is also a duel mode where you can build your own deck, then use it to duel against other decks, without the overall strategy game.

The bundle for $7 is a pretty excellent price. In my opinion, Etherlords encompasses the overall game concepts MtG *should* have done - it's flexible, has a campaign mode, dedicated duel mode, full deck customization, etc.
