From the Vault: Twenty Duel Decks: Heroes vs. Monsters Theros

Duel Decks: Heroes vs. Monsters is the 12th set in the Duel Decks series.[2][3] It was released on September 6, 2013, with an MSRP is US$19.99.

Heroes vs. Monsters contains two preconstructed theme decks, one centered around the heroes of the worlds of the multiverse (white/red) and the other around the terrifying monsters that lurk along the planes (red/green). It is tied to the themes of the fall set Theros.[4]


Heroes vs. Monsters contained six preview cards from Theros, making the product the very first chance to play with the set's new cards. One of these cards in the Monsters deck is Polukranos, World Eater, a legendary Hydra. The Heroes deck features Sun Titan with a new "Theros-friendly" image. There were six new arts in total and three arts that had never been seen in paper before.

The Duel Deck includes a Magic "learn to play" guide, a strategy insert, and two creature tokens.



The Rares in this deck are Sun Titan (holographic foil), Figure of Destiny, Anax and Cymede, Kamahl, Pit Fighter, Winds of Rath, and Nobilis of War. The deck also contains three preview cards for Theros in Anax and Cymede, Ordeal of Purphoros and Cavalry Pegasus.


The rares for this deck include Polukranos, World Eater (holographic foil), Skarrgan Firebird, Conquering Manticore, Deus of Calamity, Troll Ascetic and Crater Hellion. The deck also contains three preview cards for Theros in Polukranos, World Eater, Destructive Revelry and Satyr Hedonist.
