I haven't really play much of both MTG and WOWTCG, but I do know the rules and watch some matches before.

So, my question is how often do you need to bluff when you play these 2 games? Is bluffing something very common or rare in these games. (do you bluff often or just sometimes?)
And after that, comparing both games and see which games requires bluff more often.

Finally, do you see bluffing as a mind challenging feature of a game?

Bluffing is certainly an advanced aspect of the game - experience (or just skill) will tell you that if you're in a spot where you can bluff, like for instance if you are "land flooded" and drawing lots of lands but have plenty on board holding a few back as bluffs would be a good thing.

Usually the mark of a good player is representing a card that they don't have in hand or often times even in their deck.

The problem with bluffing in Magic is, unless your opponents are fairly high caliber opponents as well, bluffing isn't very effective. Representing a counterspell effect in hand with blue mana open isn't the best when the opponent is just lobbing spells at you without thinking.

So, yes, bluffing is a part of MTG but not as much as it could be!

I have no idea about the WoW TCG but I'm sure it has some similar situations.

Basically, any game where information is hidden to one player, but known to another, lends itself to bluffing. People are often surprised that you can bluff in bridge. Not just when bidding, but also when playing the cards.
