Wizards of the Coast Products through December 2012 (NOT Return to Ravnica)

So I'm going to give you guys an update on the products from Wizards of the Coast that we know more about all in one blog post. So here we go:

Izzet vs. Golgari Duel Decks

First of all, the two cards shown there have been officially revealed. Niv-Mizzet is a reprint not legal in Return to Ravnica, while Jarad is a new card that will also be printed in Return to Ravnica. If you buy this, you have two cards that would be awesome in Commander/EDH decks (we'll get to EDH in a bit...), but you also have a foil mythic rare you can use on October 5th at FNM (I'm not sure if this is the actual art for Jarad in RTR, or if this is an alternate art like most duel decks have).


Commander's Arsenal

There you have it folks. That is the symbol for Commander's Arsenal. But wait, there's more!

So that is what the inside of the box looks like pretty much...

This is some close ups of what you're looking at:

So here is what you are looking at: Sylvan Library with a new art, and I believe it's in foil... There are also new oversized foil cards like Azusa, Lost but Seeking. And then we have a life counter that goes up to 99. I assume it will work something like a Rubik's Cube... Wait... look at that life counter here, and now go look at the box's contents. Different colors? So we have a silver/gray/metallic color and a gold color life counter at least...

This box contains:
  • 18 premium foil cards
  • 10 oversized premium foil cards
  • 120 UltraPRO foil card sleeves
  • 20 double-sided Battle Marks (+ and –)
  • A life counter that goes up to 99
Want to know the price? $74.99 for MSRP. Now, you can obviously see the "Battle Marks", life counter, three packs of 40 sleeves, and then the oversized cards. What gets me is the 18 premium foil cards. Sure there is that one pack, but there are three flipped over. One or two are going to be the premium foil cards, but not all four, right? I'm calling it... There HAS to be more. I'm guessing there is more here than the "strategically placed" packs inside. I'm expecting a Sol Ring and a Commander's Tower, at least...

Oh, and also the Mimeoplasm from Devour for Power returns. I'm thinking as a premium foil card, regular size. It was pretty popular, so that's probably one more of the cards. There was an image of it, but it was too small.

Also, here is some art from this:

New Commander's Tower art?

From the Vault: Realms

If you are expecting an unboxing video for this, I can tell you now, of the three products in this post, this is the one I probably won't get... MSRP is $34.99, and for 15 cards, a life counter, and a fancy box, that's a bit much. Yes, these are all in foil, but I'm not quite sure I would get this... Who knows, I may wind up getting it... Or I might just bu a few singles. Now I don't have much of an explanation for you for the pictures. Only 6 cards have been revealed, as well as the box and the expansion symbol. So here we are:
