Monsters worthy of legend have always threatened the civilizations of the Multiverse. Heroes of many worlds must prove their worth by confronting these immense creatures. These heroes grow stronger with every encounter as they assail threats beyond their imagination.

Materializing out of the mist, monsters loom large on the horizon. Terrifying and relentless, these mythical creatures ravage the countryside. Enrage your monsters into jaw-dropping monstrosities and send them rampaging toward the enemy.

Duel Decks: Heroes vs. Monsters

Duel Decks: Heroes vs. Monsters

  • I wonder if this is going to be packed with legendaries… And what the heck kind of color scheme is it going to be? I like the idea but I’d love to see some more detail.

  • Justamagicdude

    I think it could be white blue vs green black with the white blue being heroes and green black being monsters but hey what do i know

    • Guest

      I’m thinking white blue humans but the monsters red black.

      • ya thinking along the same lines. White/Blue humans, but Black/Red/Green monsters. if they are going with the legendary rout, that would make the most sense in my opinion

    • Antares

      Bant Humans vs Jund Monsters? It would be interesting. It’s really just wishful thinking. I’m willing to bet money that Monsters will have red, and heroes will have white. Other colors are up in the air.

  • jibjab


  • guest

    why dont they go all but black vs like another rise of the eldrazi and the black unleashed the eldrazi to reclaim ravnica since they didnt finish the dragons maze

    • What?…

      • CodyGozRawr


        • MtgMind-Welder98


    • Gegorgymos

      What did i just read

    • max

      phyrexia vs the coalition you mean
      its been done be4 m8

  • White/Red Heroes, Black/Blue/Green Monsters. Why? Cuz it’s the option nobody has thought of XD

    • CodyGozRawr

      If they did that then they could have Hero of Bladehold and Hero of Oxid Ridge together, which would be interesting

  • guy

    still holding out for Squirrels vs. Rats

    • lightningrod14

      with all due respect, I think squirrels pretty much has this one in the bag.

      • Xero

        You kidding me? I have an extremely nasty rat deck that can take down a squirrel deck in a second.

        • Jace Must die

          infinite squirrels turn three. Squirrel Nest and Earthcraft. kill my 100000000000×10^100000 power squirrels

          • disqus_TGpnjTAMa4

            I see your squirrels and raise my sliver army from the ruins of Dominaria

          • AdventureMormon

            I see your sliver army and raise more squirrels. Lots more squirrels.

          • starkravingbone

            OH HELL YES
            they should release a 3 way duel deck
            with slivers vs rats vs squirrels!

          • MtgMind-Welder98

            Next turn, Damnation

          • O0oze

            +coat of arms/cathar’s crusade… infinite infinite/infinite squirrels…

        • MtgMind-Welder98

          By the way, there aren’t too many squirrel cards compared to rat ones….which is a good reason for making a SQUIRREL VS. RATS DUEL DECK (Me:”whisper” Wizards, that’s your queue!”)

      • Jon

        Squirrels have a better potential for overwhelming.
        However, rats get bigger.
        So that kind balances things out, especially with a Mutilate or something.

    • realitant

      im still waiting for plants vs zombies. stupid copyright laws

      • Kyle

        So make it Zombies VS Plants JAJAJA

        • AdventureMormon

          As long as there are a few Trees of Redemption, I’m fine with it.

      • mrkookas

        what side is dreg mangler on?

        • Dave Stott

          PUP list: Self loathing!

    • chris boulanger

      Rats would be awesome. The deck would have pack rat in it.

      • MtgMind-Welder98

        yah but then wizards would have a squirrel card to counter that called,”Squirrel Pack” so…..yah O-O “Poker Face”

    • Guy

      i think everyone’s right. imagine this, 27 29/29 “relentless rats” relentlessly charging at you, and then at the horizon you see a blanket of brown fur, that seems to engulf everything in its path, running head first towards the behemoth rats…BAM a million squirrels and 27 behemoth rats do battle. pockets of brown patches of flesh that at one time were squirrels litter the land scape, randomly scattered across the land lay those huge rats with millions of small gnaw marks on their carcasses. EPIC. plus it could be fair, squirrels deck tries to overwhelm the rats deck and chump block the occasional fatty (everybody knows the infinite combo). Rats would have the relentless rats-thrumming stone combo, have board wipes like mutilate and pestilence (does not kill big fatty rats, while killing the small squirrels) and even evasion like marrow-gnare and/or maybe a trample enabler. PLUS, each deck would have a copy of “swarmyard”.

        ^This is beautiful.

      • that guy

        this should be a book.

        • Wes Wade

          It’s called Redwall

      • DirtyKitty


        Squirrels….vs. Pentagriff!!!!!!

        • DirtyKitty

          Oops, I mean Phelddagrif

      • guest

        I am still hoarding 9 swarmyards just in case…

      • sp1nn

        Love the mental image!

      • Jacob Eggebeen

        Ratchet bomb 4 the fin

    • I have witnessed a rats vs. drakes/Talrand battle of epic proportions…

    • Clandestino

      Smoke weed everyday.

    • Ziiko

      Squirrel/rats commander deck!

    • Darkcouch1

      If that means I can get thrumming stones without going online, I’m down for it.

  • DragonsMazeRestored

    Heroes and monsters… Monsters are pretty obvious (Green, red, maybe black) but heroes seems white and red.
    They probably wont do 2 duel decks sharing a color so monsters will probably be Green and black.
    I think we might be seeing some Avacyn restored cards for the Heroes. To bad they cant put gisela in, but boros cards might work.

    • CodyGozRawr

      Why wouldn’t they be able to put Gisela in?

    • Shadow921

      what about ajani vs bolas they shared red

  • Anthony

    I think its going to have 1 “Hero” or “Monster” card released before “Thereos”
    Like they did with Jarad
    So maybe Hero and Monster Creature types just a guess tho

  • i’m thinking that the monster deck will have a lot of the transform cards from Innistrad and Dark Ascension.

  • CodyGozRawr

    Lol typo at the top of the page where you can go to Dragon’s Maze and Theros or M14, it says “Heroes vs Monters”

    • Ludicolo

      I’m a monater coach.

      • Hit To Key

        I’m a monster


  • CodyGozRawr

    I’m thinking it will be white/green for heroes and blue/black for monsters, because looking at the last duel decks, you had izzet and golgari, so they probably wont have a green/black deck again, then for sorin vs tibalt you had white/black and red/black, so i dont think they will make another green/black or red/black, and there hasn’t been a green/white duel deck in a while, that or azorius colors or bant colors vs jund colors

    • Antares

      Calling it now:
      Heroes will have white. Personally, I’m hoping for Bant (it’s a plane of angels and knights. That’s heroic, right?).
      The monsters? 5 colors; the monster mythic is Progenitus. XD

      Nah, not really. That would be hilarious, though.

  • Hand of the Praetors

    The monster mythic is probably going to be something stupid like Pimordial Hydra or Apocalypse Hydra.

  • WhenWillTheSpoilersCome?

    They should do a joke duel decks.
    Fraction jackson Vs. Timmy and Johnny.

    • Funnygirl96

      or donkeys vs. chickens

    • Sean Mclorie


  • sphinxy

    maybe this is like innastrad humans vs monsters (vampires, werewolfs, zombies.

  • ThreeForMe

    How about a Tri versus set? Like Eldrazi vs Phyrexia vs Planeswalkers.

  • Slivers vs. Eldrazi

    • Rezon Shinryu


      • NovaAkita

        I have played this many times, until I realized that I should combine the slivers and the eldrazi, and have Hive Stone, making all my other non slivers into slivers Aka Sliver Eldrazi creatures.

    • philbo bagginz


    • Fbn Dnl Schlr

      Slivers Vs. Remasuris! Yes, Slivers are called Remasuris here in Germany.

    • PZX

      Eldrazi would win every time. 12post+All is dust

  • anon

    Beowulf vs Grendal ..

  • selesnyaWarden

    funny how Evan Erwin on the magic show gave a nickname to this release, I recall he dubbed it “stuff VS. things” LOL just saying


    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Monters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love MONTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Derek the Pineapple

    Cats vs Rats

  • Somebody should fix the typo for the header link on the main page that links to this page.

    • MagicSpoiler


  • Captain of the Mists

    What legendary creatures do you think would be on the “Heroes” side, if that’s the theme WoC is going for.

    Same goes for monsters, I guess. What major creatures. (I’d vote for craterhoof as the mythic)

    • Qateris

      craterhoof seems like a good option. id vote for hellkite overlord or something along those lines (jund)

  • Djyfjyf

    Enrage=new keyword

    • Adam Gillespie

      But theres already cards that use that kinda pump ability and its called firebreathing (unofficially )

  • O`Connell

    A reprint of All Hallow`s Eve would be cool if the Monster`s side favored a lot of stuff from the Innistrad block

    • James S Agee

      All Hallow’s Eve is on the reserve list. No reprint. Ever.

  • Geoff

    the most obvious card on the hero side ought to be intrepid …wait for it….hero. from the artwork and flavor aspect my first choice for a monsters deck would be uril the miststalker! but that just randomly throws white into the monster deck which is just not going to happen. i’m plainly excited about a greek/roman mythology magic set. U/G/W atlantis with elves and humans and sea-monsters? a proper go at the creature type cyclops?? anybody got a calender with fastforward function?

  • GoatManDan

    Goats vs Eldrazi ftw.

  • Purely Anonymous

    If monsters are green, do you think they’d put in Mossbridge Troll?

  • Jason West

    more gorgons maybe and basilisks?

  • jv

    slivers vs allies

    • NovaAkita

      I have done this, the slivers usually win out.

  • Damen

    sounds ok but duel decks aren’t that great.

    • Monk O’Riordan

      If you play Commander they are, great way to get alot of the commons, uncommons, and even some rares you wouldn’t otherwise go out of your way to buy a single of.

  • Damen

    how about vampires vs werewolves? twilight sucks but its a good idea for an mtg duel deck

    • MtgMind-Welder98

      Still a better love story than Twilight though…right?

  • Joshua Knox


    • Jabin

      i realize i am making an assumption but please, PLEASE DO NOT reprint the titans for standard…..i dont want to go back to the dark days…

  • Jaktipe

    Squirrels Vs Dinosaurs

  • Zachary Vollen

    That sun titan is so awesome that I just might get it for the sun titan.

  • MTG Player 1979

    I wonder if all of the Titans will be coming back (Primeval Titan <3)

    • William S. Miller

      He would be really broken. . .but still it would be nice to see. . .just think Naya Giants. . .or Junk Giants. . .

    • Darkcouch1

      Not being printed in Theros, Wizards said. :/

    • salriella

      Highly likely, given that Theros is all about Ancient Greece. Merfolk and Titans and Minotaurs :3

  • IAmGnarles

    Hmmm… With the new Sun titan art, anyone else think the titans could be making a comeback in Theros?

  • Ludicolo

    “A blazing sun that never sets.”

    Never gets old.

  • chaseplaneswalkin.89

    sooooo jw any of you know that this entire new set is gona be insanely complex so just prepare for that like billion new machnics and everything and also the pre release is gona be just like the guild thing for gate crash and stuff so you choose your color and they all have different meanings just like the guilds did and you also get the guild card that wil be able to be played in your deck if you have no idea what im talkin about just look at the thereos spoilers plus the magic panel it gives a wealth of info on the new set and what to expect and how to prep for it also the vs deck willl have alot of theros stuff inside of it so buying this vs deck will probably be a smart move

    • Adam Gillespie

      There are 3 new mechanics and you just pick a colour at pre release which gets you the hero card associated with that colour, thats the only difference we know atm between pre release packs

  • Casey Brake Jr.

    sweet! really hope they bring back the titans which to think of it would be understandable because the block is going to be about gods. what would be more god like then a 50-60 ft giant.

  • MtgMind-Welder98

    Still waiting for Elder Dragons vs. Kittens

    • MtgMind-Welder98

      In my opinion, there would be to many Kittens for the Elder Dragons to handle.

      • AdventureMormon

        Definitely. The cats would win in a landslide victory.

        • MtgMind-Welder98

          Theres no doubt about it ;-)

      • David Fitzsimmons

        the funny thing? That is almost exactly what my Knights vs Dragons decks evolved into. My dragons deck is still dragons, just some better dragons and other related cards.

        But the Knights deck? i replaced the few non cat flyers with the cat flyers in Scars of Mirrodin and added in a couple white sun zenith to help out with getting a nice army count towards late game. That’s when inspiration hit, i removed all the enchantments I had in the deck and replaced them with equipments and plopped in two Khemba Kha Regent cards. For added hilarity and pure nonsense I may sideboard in a single Coat of Arms for when i just want to be over the top:P

        I dubbed it my “I can haz chivalry?” deck. and while it may lack in one on one play, it is a killer in multiplayer games by hiding behind the knights with a the few enchantments left in the deck to give all my creatures hexproof as well as myself hexproof and spending time prepping for the massive cat tides.

        • MtgMind-Welder98

          I would really like to see your,”I Can Haz Chivalry?” go down against your Dragon deck. It would be very interesting to see. But if you seriously want to troll your friends with a ridiculous deck, I once made a,”Cancel” deck. It’s just a deck filled with counter spells.

    • richardshort2001

      But only real cats, none of those anthropomorphized abominations.

      • MtgMind-Welder98

        Right just regular Kittens. It’s ether Kittens or Tribbles.

  • Spencer Anomic Carlson

    I love the new art for Sun Titan. And that flavor text is a brilliant metaphor. I just want that version of the card.

  • no name

    Goats VS Slivers

    • Bill Harrison

      slivers win

  • Random Guy

    So, when Alien vs Predator?

  • john

    Eldrazi vs Hydra

  • whatever

    this makes me kinda disapointed this set doesnt seem worth it.

  • Rose Hip Zero

    No ‘Assemble The Legion’ in Heroes deck? A must add if anyone buys this duel package.

  • Bill Harrison

    Elves vs. Goblins :)

  • Alex D.

    Will this dual deck go up in value as others have? For instance, Elves vs Goblins is $100+ anywhere you wish to buy it now

    • Tapabrata


    • grunt

      given time yes, (lots of time) but elves vs. goblins and Devine vs demonic are kind of unique because they are rarer, the start of the duel decks, and popular themes (all the fan boys love elves, goblins and angels (demons not so much)). if i was you i wouldn’t waste the time and money buying tons of these to hold on to. just buy one or the singles you like.

  • CheezyBread365

    Racoons Vs Pickles

  • PH03N1X

    Buy a set box for $90 (about 2.80 per pack, compared to your 3.99 retail) and build your own deck. You could always pitch in with friends, and even get some limited games with a draft.

    • PH03N1X

      I feel like this takes away the deck builders challenge, sure you can enhance it, but you only learn by trying it yourself. Build decks and play test.
