Jace vs. Vraska Decklist

Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,
Last evening, Magic: the Gathering players using the card database Gatherer noted with some interest that the expansion list was updated to include all cards for the latest Duel Decks: Jace vs. Vraska.  Jace vs. Vraska pits the ever ubiquitous Jace, a specialist in illusion magic, mind reading, and memory modification, against the mysterious gorgon Vraska, Ravnica’s master assassin.

If you are new to the game, Duel Decks are a series of themed decks that first saw print in 2007 with Elves vs. Goblins. These special sets contain two 60-card decks and are specifically designed to be played against each other by two people.

As expected, WotC staffer Mike McArtor prosted the decklists for Duel Decks: Jace vs. Vraska on the motheriste today.  Here's the lists now -

The Duel Decks: Jace vs. Vraska box set contains ten rare cards and two mythic rare cards, the headliners for this product: foil alternate art versions of Jace, Architect of Thought and Vraska the Unseen.  Here are the rares / mythic rares for this Duel Deck as well as handy images for the six alternate arts featured.  (We're especially happy with the new Body Double Art!)

Jace, Architect of Thought, Aeon Chronicler, Body Double, Jace's Mindseeker, Future Sight, Spelltwine

Vraska the Unseen, Ohran Viper, Reaper of the Wilds, Spawnwrithe, Vinelasher Kudzu, Underworld Connections

For a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $20, here's what you get -
• 2 ready-to-play 60-card decks
• 2 deck boxes
• 3 creature tokens
• 1 strategy insert
• 1 learn-to-play guide

Collectors ignoring the fun game aspect of this will likely rip boxes to dig out the popular higher value cards - essentially Remand and the two 'Walkers, Jace and Vraska.  Given this, expect the sealed product to retail in your local gaming store for $30 to $35.  Here at MTG Realm, our only criticism is that there is no Abrupt Decay in Vraska's list.  We suggest that you pick up an Abrupt Decay at MTG Mint Card and replace one of the rares.  Let's roll the product 4.1.1. and a list of the current and previous Duel Deck products -
