Today Sept. 6, 2013 Wizards of the Coast's latest "Magic: the Gathering" product "Duel Decks: Heroes vs. Monsters" hits retail shelves. Featuring two full 60 card decks, there's six preview cards from "Theros" included. Unlike "Duel Decks: Sorin vs. Tibalt" there aren't any planeswalkers in this set. Instead, each deck features a noteworthy legend with a special foil treatment as we saw with last year's "Duel Decks: Izzet vs Golgari"
The "Heroes" deck boasts an alternate art foil Anax and Cymede, along with five additional rares: Figure of Destiny, Kamahl, Pit Fighter, Nobilis of War, Sun Titan, and Winds of Rath. A couple of other notable cards from the deck include Condemn and Magma Jet.
There's a plethora of other goodies inside the "Heroes" deck to play with. Check out the full "Heroes" deck list.
The "Monsters" deck features an alternate art foil Polukranos, Wrold Eater, with five additional rares: Conquering Manticore, Skarrgan Firebird, Crater Hellion, Deus of Calamity, and Troll Ascetic. A couple of other notable cards from the deck include Regrowth and Pyroclasm.
Check out the full "Monsters" Deck list.
"Duel Decks: Heroes vs. Monsters" was designed and developed by Chris Millar, Kelly Digges and Sam Stoddard. It's available in English and Japanese for an MSRP of $19.99.
Which of the two decks are you looking forward to playing with most? Heroes or Monsters?
