Duel Decks: Blessed vs. Cursed is the 17th set in the Duel Decks series. It was released on February 26, 2016.[2]


The two decks represent humans and their allies fighting dark forces over control of the plane of Innistrad. They contain six preview cards for Shadows over Innistrad: Topplegeist, Eerie Interlude, Pore Over the Pages, Tooth Collector, Mindwrack Demon (alternate art), and Compelling Deterrence.[3]

Three older cards receive new artwork: Geist of Saint Traft, Momentary Blink, and Dread Return.

The Duel Decks include a Magic “learn to play” guide, a strategy insert, a spindown life counter and 5 tokens each.


Holy Warriors Unite Against the Unquiet Dead.

A divine mission has once again united the Humans, Spirits, and Angels of Innistrad. Together, these protectors will stand against the shadows, fighting for humanity's salvation. Evil rules the night. Shambling hordes of the dead roam free, their cemetery gates in ruins, as powerful Demons soar overhead. The fate of the living remains shrouded in darkness. Will you defend hope or snuff it out?
