Happy Monday MTG peeps,
Some rather exciting news for Magic: the Gathering players today - WotC minion TJ provided the decklists of the latest Duel Decks - Heroes vs. Monsters on the mothersite today. If you are not in the know, Duel Decks are a series of theme decks which started way back in 2007 with Elves vs. Goblins. These contain two 60-card decks designed and developed specifically to be played against each other by two people. In recent years, Duel Decks have been connected to the themes of the large fall sets and preview cards which are printed in the first fall set. With Duel Decks: Heroes vs. Monsters be released on September 6, 2013, we have a total of six new cards which will see print in Theros. We'll be checking out MTG Mint Card to collect a few of these singles to slightly modify these lists. Stay tuned to our next post latter today when we look at the new Theros cards.
Anywhoos - let's have a looky-loo of what you get for an MSRP of $20:
• 2 ready-to-play 60-card decks
• 2 deck boxes
• 2 creature tokens
• 1 strategy insert
• 1 learn-to-play guide
DD: H vs. M will allow players experience the eternal conflict between mighty heroes and terrifying monstrosities. Heroes vs. Monsters contains two preconstructed theme decks, one centered around the heroes of the worlds of the multiverse (white splashed with red) and the other around the terrifying monsters that lurk along the planes (red/green). It is tied to the themes of the fall set Theros. Heroes vs Monsters will contain six preview cards from this fall's Magic set Theros. These two ready-to-play 60-card decks include ten rare cards and two mythic rare cards: foil alternate art versions of Sun Titan and Polukranos, World Eater. In addition, there are seven other cards carefully selected from past Magic sets that appear with never-before-printed artwork.
