Duel Decks: Heroes Vs. Monsters

    We've had a couple of those already - Visara the Dreadful; Damia, Sage of Stone. A new one is practically inevitable in Theros, though maybe not in the Monsters deck.


    Maybe Vraska will make an appearance?

    Pretty sure Intrepid Hero will be in the list. I call W/G vs B/R.

    I'm betting the Hero deck will be primarily White/Green and the Monster deck will be primarily Red/Black. Maybe both will splash a little Blue for Bant/Grixis flavor?

    I'm hoping they don't rehash stuff printed in FTV:Legends, Divine vs. Demonic, or Knights vs. Dragons though.

    I would be excited to see some stuff from the original 'Legends' expansion, and wouldn't be surprised if they threw in something like Crimson Manticore, which I know isn't a great card, but they put Desert in FTV:Realms just for flavor. Maybe they'll go nuts and pick one of the random legendary creatures not on the reprint list, like Rubinia Soulsinger or Torsten Von Ursus.

    This deck feels like an excuse for them to print a ton of EDH friendly legendary creatures. Maybe this //gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&type=+[%22Land%22">&text=+[target]+[legendary]+[creature]"]legendary land cycle will make a cameo...

    Sometimes I feel like the word "interactivity" around here is akin to the word "electrolytes" in sports drinks. The public doesn't really know what it means, but they figure it's a good thing to have.

    Just wait until next year, when we get Duel Decks: Things vs. Stuff.


    I call fake. It would be Tings.
    But, still, so far, the best and the most descritive post on this whole topic.

    (Give your LGS judge a hug. He deserves it.)

    Nothing. All I want is Heroes vs. Monsters spoilers.

    Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

    maybe this one could be an include for the monster side
    Quote from Caedere

    So.
    I think I understand now.
    As far as these forums are concerned, WotC can never do anything good because:

    Card that is new and probably good = "pushed"
    Card that is new and probably bad = "EDH/casual fodder"
    Card that is a reprint = "lazy"
    Card that is a better version of an older card = "power creep"
    Card that is a weaker version of an older card = "worthless"

    Does that about sum things up?
  • #135
    What if half of the monster deck is Werewolves and Delvers? Haha, This of course was a joke.
  • #136
    I think a BUG vs WR list would be interesting, encompassing all 5 colors and giving each access to plenty of "heroes" and "monsters" to pit against one another. G feels like a shoe in for Monsters, since it usually gets the biggest, baddest, meanest creatures around. Black also gets a different type of "horror" type of Monster, like Medusas and, well, Horrors. I put Blue in BUG for their Krakens and Leviathans, which I think could be good Monsters for a Monster themed deck.

    I just thought about it REAL deep, and I came to the conclusion the monster side must be blue.
    After all, the biggest monster created in the past 5 years is blue

    It is a monster to pay, play with and to play against.

    If the store owner says that I can't trade in the premises, I'll just go outside. If he says that I can't trade within 10m of his premises, I'll go to 11 meters. If he says that he doesn't want to see me trading, I will put a basket over his head and continue trading.


    Quote from Stinky-Dinkins

    Yes, he's a local legend. He's only known to take his clothes off before he goes into the Ladies' Lockerroom. Nobody knows what he does in there because he's invisible, but it's almost certainly tons of masturbating.

    Heroes i'm sure will be Wx, monsters on the other hand, i'm assuming Gx, but it could honestly go a bunch of different directions, it would be pretty awesome (sarcasm) to have a foil alt art jace, the mind sculpter in a 20$ duel deck, they'd gurantee sell out that's for sure.

    I think all the store owners will keep it for themselves, or we can see a $200 duel deck.

    Godsire!? I really hope it's a sweet reprint.

    I'm basing this on the obvious herald art, if that's relevant whatsoever.


    It isn't. They've been using the art from the Herald cycle for about every announcement since they were printed.

    Mark my words

    Hero's - White/Red

    Monsters - Black/Blue

    Just seems fitting. Anyone see Hero of Bladehold rocking this set?

    These things go to stores like Wal-Mart and Target. You would be able to find plenty at $19.99, though they would be probably more difficult to find then in the past due to people buying out the store when they see say 10 on the shelves.

    I agree local card shops would charge an arm and a leg though.

    I think in Theros will have a mechanic like level up but the creature will only level up when it kills another creature or something to the effect of that because of how it is stated in the dual deck lore is what you call it I guess "These heroes grow stronger with every encounter as they assail threats beyond their imagination."

    The name makes me think their might be 2 new creature types: Heroes and Monsters.
    I finally have one them fancy shmancy Signatures.

    If this was a duel deck full of completely new cards it would be a first ever. I assume you mean they are adding Heroes/Monsters into Theros but those types are pretty generic.

    So I wouldn't bet on that...

    Or since they're sold in basic retail stores they'd be worth 20 bucks...

    And if level up seriously comes back then I will hate theros mechanics. Level up was no fun, if anyone remembers. It's just not fun to sink a ton of mana into one card and lose it to a removal spell a turn before it's worth anything. I doubt level up will be the returning mechanic. It's lame.

    What would be interesting is if they used Grizlbrand as the foil for the monsters.
    Just my 2 cents worth

    I bet it will contain an Intrepid Hero. Rolleyes
