Duel Decks: Merfolk vs. Goblins is the 20th set in the Duel Decks series. It was released on November 10, 2017.[2][3]

Description[edit | edit source]

Merfolk vs. Goblins pits two of the most recognizable tribes in the history of Magic against one another. Will you side with the reckless and wily goblins or the graceful and cunning merfolk? Merfolk is fronted by Master of Waves and the Goblins deck features Warren Instigator. The two premium cards, along with Aquitect's Will, Tidal Courier, Gempalm Incinerator, Goblin Goon and Relentless Assault feature new artwork.

The Duel Decks include a Magic “learn to play” guide, a strategy insert, and a deck box, a spindown life counter and 5 tokens each. Each deck contains 10 rares.
