Happy Monday MTG peeps,
Big news out today for Magic: the Gathering fans wanting to get their claws into some early Battle for Zendikar spoilers. Over on the mothersite today, Blake Rasmussen, DailyMTG Editor-in-Chief showcased the upcoming sealed product Duel Decks: Zendikar vs. Eldrazi on the mothersite by playing a few games with WotC MTG community managers, Alison Luhrs and Sean Gibbons. For the full decklist and Blake's article, click on over here.
These duel decks are part of an ongoing (annual) series of pre-constructed theme decks developed specifically to be played against each other. This is of particular interest as the Duel Decks contain a handful of new cards to be printed in the 'fall set'. Anywhoos, here's the 4.1.1. for Duel Decks: Zendikar vs. Eldrazi -
Drawing on the powerful mana that surges through the roiling land, Zendikar's forces have joined together to defend their plane.
The Eldrazi titans, trapped for thousands of years, have broken their bonds. Now their numberless spawn begin to overrun Zendikar.
Can Zendikar resist this onslaught? Or will the Eldrazi triumph?
These ready-to-play decks showcase cards from across Magic history including cards from the new Battle for Zendikar set and four cards with new artwork.
