Duel Decks: Sorin vs. Tibalt



Let's face it: This artwork looks awesome! This particular promotional art was done by artist Chase Stone. You may know him from his work for the card Chartooth Cougar (Koth's deck in DD: Venser vs. Koth) and from Xathrid Gorgon (M13).

Enough about the art... About a week before we get to hold Duel Decks: Izzet vs. Golgari in our hands (and watch an unboxing video by your truly), we get the announcement of the next Duel Deck package coming out on March 15, 2013. This was about the time that Venser vs. Koth came out last year, and from the looks of it, we get two Duel Decks per year: a Planeswalker vs. Planeswalker and a Group vs. Group. In 2012 we had Venser vs. Koth and we will have Izzet vs. Golgari. In 2011, we had Knights vs. Dragons and we had Ajani vs. Nicol Bolas, etc. Now we know the PW vs PW for 2013.

I'm assuming this will be Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and not Sorin Markov, but it could still happen. I'm guessing Lord of Innistrad since he would still be in Standard at that point. And he will be just in time for a Orzhov guild-colored deck too. So I guess by the looks of it, we will have a Sorin vampire deck and a Tibalt demon deck perhaps. It will be interesting for sure, and I'm willing to be we'll probably see Sorin's Thirst included.



And how about that awesome expansion symbol?




Please let me know your thoughts on this match-up. Will this be a good Duel Deck? What do you want to see next? Let me know in the comments below!
