Quote from xlichShouldn't the set be called, if it's Venser and Koth facing the world of Scars, duel decks: Venser and Koth? They don't want to stop each other, thy're allies for god sake. It's not a duel deck, it's the duet deck they were making fun of an April fools day ago. Except instead of love, it's a buddy cop movie.
Quote from ElbLeeSo far we got Timothy Olyphant, David Tennant, and Michael C. Hall as the Venser alt art model, my vote is Stephen Dorff.
Quote from SojournerThe flavor oozes off this card like a fat stack of KFC Doubledowns in the desert.
Quote from wingedcoyoteThis makes me really happy, but presents a bit of a dilemma -- I was just planning to purchase a Venser for cube/casual, and I really don't need two... but I also don't know if I want to wait until March. Decisions!
Can we speculate about what cards will be included here? The basic plan for Venser is pretty obvious, so we can guess a lot of inclusions. Momentary Blink as his alt-art "signature" spell would be very cool. And Reveillark as one of his rares would be epic. As for Koth, what do we think they'll do to differentiate his mono red aggro deck from Chandra's?
Quote from AEIOUsometimesY
Once again, I'll just be looking out for any possible decent reprints that get first-time modern frames treatment (Capsize, anyone?).

Quote from JRE47As others have said, there is tremendous value in these Planeswalker Duel Decks for those of us that can't just go out and buy a playset of, say, Vensers. Heck, Venser and Koth alone are worth twice the MSRP of this particular Duel Deck. Anything else they throw in is just gravy.
I already plan to buy the Ajani vs. Bolas one (Nicol is worth the MSRP by himself), but Venser vs. Koth seems like the best value yet, at least for its two stars.
Quote from TJReichDon't these msrp at 19.99 at walmart? I could actually afford some planeswalkers that are decent? Huh. Koth sits at over 20 right now at 15ish. Granted they'll probably rotate out of standard quickly, koth is great for cube even then. Interesting. (spoiling already? seems weird since avn isn't even released).
As for Koth, what do we think they'll do to differentiate his mono red aggro deck from Chandra's?
Quote from TanionHoly hell... the arts look TERRIBLE! Venser is holding two sperm and Koth is going to fall off a cliff..
Quote from VividiceThe price will go down the drain. Halfed Price is a save bet I guess.
