Duel Decks: Elspeth vs. Kiora

Happy Monday MTG peeps,

Wow do we have a load of Magic: the Gathering updates for you today.  Please expect a few posts today as we wade through some rather exciting news and announcements.  This is our second post for today.  You can check out our first post on the Dragons of Tarkir set announcement over here.

For this post, we want to cover off the announcement from the mothersite on the very next Duel Decks product.  This is the 15th duel deck in the Duel Deck series which contain two pre-constructed sixty-card themed decks which are designed to be played against each-other.  A number of cards are to receive new artwork including the 'marquee' Planeswalker cards for each deck - Elspeth, Sun's Champion (originally printed in in 'Theros' set) and Kiora, the Crashing Wave (originally printed in the 'Born of the Gods' set).

Here's the announcement and flavour text !

Duel Decks: Elspeth vs. Kiora

The knight Planeswalker Elspeth Tirel sees herself as the protector of the Multiverse. She has pledged her sword and shield to all who suffer, and she summons forth impressive armies to assist her. The merfolk Planeswalker Kiora calls upon the creatures of the deepest oceans to fight at her side. She is the master of the world beneath the waves, her true power only now beginning to surface. How will these Planeswalkers measure up when they meet in battle?

There was also some very cool / intriguing images to engage your curiosity and kick start your speculation from the  PAX Australia MTG panel on the weekend in Melbourne.

Wonderful art! We have our suspicions as as to which cards the last two images are and will want to pick up extra singles of these from MTG Mint Card for our Commander decklists.
