Wizards To Bring Us “Koth vs Venser” Duel Decks in March
From the official announcement:
The Planeswalker Koth, from the metal plane of Mirrodin, sought help when his world darkened. He traveled to Dominaria to enlist allies and met fellow Planeswalker Venser.
When Venser recognized the threat to Koth’s world was none other than Phyrexia, he knew that the only hope for Mirrodin was to find its maker. But that would mean forsaking its people in the meantime.
Koth would rather die than turn his back on his fellow Mirrans. But Venser all but knew they would die anyway if they failed to reach Karn, his former mentor and creator of Mirrodin.
Two Planeswalkers, one goal, very different methods. Recreate the struggle to lead the way to Mirrodin’s salvation.

It is an interesting time to be releasing a Koth card. This will give you ample time to play with him before he rotates in a year from October. They also switched how the “Duel Decks” will be released. Instead of having a “faction vs faction” style deck out in the spring, those will come out in the fall. The explanation is that they can better line up a “faction vs faction” to line up better with the upcoming block. Which makes sense. Who wouldn’t have wanted a “Humans vs Gothic Horrors” duel deck series to come out just before Innistrad? The “planeswalker vs planeswalker” style duel decks will now come out in the spring instead. This gives them an opportunity to give players a chance to play with them while they are still in standard. For more information and some artwork, check out the official Magic site.
