Jace vs. Chandra

We have details for the anticipated Jace vs. Chandra Duel Decks. As announced on Wizards today, we can expect the product release in less than a month. Ken Nagle is expected to have a write-up on 3rd November to give us the skinny. For all the details, check out this WoTC page.

Expect to pay about $20 or so for the set. Both decks are legal in the Type 2 tournament format and you will most likely see it in the hands of the hands of 'Control' and 'Burn' phreaks at your local gaming store on 7th November, 2008 (a Friday).

The set is comprised of 2 sixty card ready-to-play decks. Each deck focuses on one of two Planeswalkers first introduced in the Lorwyn expansion set: Jace Beleren and Chandra Nalaar.

The set will contain 2 mythic rare cards, 6 rare cards, 4 alternate-art cards, and 2 foil mythic rare alternate-art foil-yummy versions of Jace Beleren and Chandra Nalaar. The other cards within this set will include cards from the entire 15 year history of Magic.

Here is the flavour from marketing . . .
Which Planeswalker Will Prevail?

Jace Beleren, prodigy of mental magic torn between good and evil. Chandra Nalaar, sharp-witted pyromancer with a smoldering chip on her shoulder. Both carry with them a vast arsenal of devastating spells. Neither ever accepts defeat. Chance has pitted one against the other, but you’ll determine the outcome.

Some cards to expect in the set include Ancestral Vision, Chandra Nalaar, Counterspell, Demonfire, Jace Beleren, Fact or Fiction, Flametongue Kavu, Incinderate, Quicksilver Dragon, and Seal of Fire.

The J vs C Duel Decks will also come packed with a strategy insert, 3 tokens, a Magic “Learn to Play” guide, and two deck boxes for storage, but you don't have to use those - - - you can get this sweet deck box from Ultra.Pro and these card sleeves so your drool does not ruin the cards.

These decks are NOT Type 2 legal. They are tournament legal. Meaning that you can play the cards in any tournament in which the cards are legal.

Really? I was getting so excited to be using counterspell again...

Awesome! I might have to buy the decks just for the alternate art.

Well I bought those decks in Europe and the packaging is nothing like this in the picture. It has the strategy insert and the tokens and the deck boxes, but the boxes are just like normal theme deck boxes and not the cool deck containers shown here. Everything else is the same.

Bill, the post explained that if you had bothered reading past the images. "You can get this sweet deck box from Ultra.Pro and these card sleeves so your drool does not ruin the cards."
So yeah. You get regular packs and then go to Ultra.Pro for those outlandishly stylish cases.

Hey there sliggy . . . perhaps Bill is only talking about the first image - I don't know - Bill will have to weigh in here and perhaps clarify.
