DD Izzet vs Golgari

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

We don't often get overly hot under the collar for Magic the Gathering Duel Decks products but we have to admit that we are already pumped for the Return to Ravnica set coming this fall (October, 2012) and think that Wizards of the Coast has perfectly timed the guild / faction product Izzet vs. Golgari just ahead of the fall release to cash in on our infatuation of all things Ravnica.  By the way, you can pre-order Return to Ravnica card lots already at MTG Mint Card which has a special going on.  We have great expectations of the forthcoming decklist in terms of not only flavour but a well-balanced build which will allow players to game with this months / years to come. 

Anywhoos - here's the 4.1.1. -

Duel Decks: Izzet vs. Golgari is the tenth set in the Duel Decks series. It will be released on September 7th, 2012 and contains two preconstructed theme decks. The MSRP is $19.99.  Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord are featured cards.  Two of the guilds of the Magic: The Gathering game setting face off below the fantasy city of Ravnica in this Duel Deck.  Izzet vs. Golgari pits the Izzet League and its dragon leader Niv-Mizzet against the secretive Golgari and their lich lord Jarad.


The Izzet League, under the ingenious mind of its guildmaster, the dragon Niv-Mizzet, has dabbled, delved, and decoded many mysteries in its insatiable thirst for knowledge. Now the dracomagus seeks to plumb the depths of Ravnica’s undercity. But the Golgari don’t welcome interlopers in their dank, moldy realm.

Under the command of the elvish lich lord Jarad, the Golgari have dwelled in darkness long enough. The Swarm grows restless and its rot farms need fresh corpses. Jarad believes the time is right to teach Niv-Mizzet’s magewrights a lesson: that there is no place for Izzet research in the vicious cycle of life and death.
