Friday was the release of the Ajani vs Nicol Bolas Duel Deck. I love these duel decks and so I picked up one on the Saturday, from Giant Robot Comics on Woodlawn in Dartmouth, NS and here’s the unboxing.

If you are ever in and around Dartmouth, definitely swing by Giant Robot Comics, their Magic The Gathering precon decks are very competitively priced.

Duel Decks – Knights vs Dragons – Unboxing

On Friday, my recently purchased Knights vs. Dragons Duel Deck arrived. Here is the unboxing I did at the weekend. Enjoy!

Knights vs. Dragons

There be Goblins


In a step to allay consumer fears that Knights vs Dragons may, in some cases, may be Dragons vs Dragons. Wizards have issued a notice to retailers reminding them that the top card in the ‘cellophane’ wrapped decks is the Goblin Token.

This Goblin Token seems to confuse some buyers who assume it to indicate that they have 2 Dragon decks. Here is the link to the notice:
