Theros Heroes vs. Monsters

~
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.  With today's previews, we can now confirm two of the five expected mechanics / keywords - 'Monstrosity' and 'Heroic'.  Theros will be hitting game stores on 27 September, 2013 and online MTG stores like MTG Mint Card are getting ready for your pre-orders now.

Anywhoos - let's have a looky-loo of what new cards Theros preview cards we have today!
