DD: Elspeth vs. Kiora

Happy Tuesday MTG peeps,

We hope every here in Ontario had a great Family Day and our American cousins to the south had a great President's Day.  For today's Magic: the Gathering post to MTG Realm, we want to take a step back to our earlier post on the leaked decklists for Duel Decks: Elspeth vs. Kiora.  Well, it does indeed all look correct with the official post to the mothersite yesterday.  As we now have the confirmation, let's yatter a bit more about this Duel Deck.  -

Duel Decks: Elspeth vs. Kiora is the 15th set in the Duel Decks series. It will be released in just over a week from now on February 27, 2015 for a suggested retail price of $20.

The product 'flavour' -
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?
