( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Goblins and elves clash with these two decks! Is this two-player Duel Decks pack great fun or ghastly? We review it here.

Elves and goblins have been fighting since fantasy stories were first told. Now the Magic: The Gathering Duel Decks: Elves vs. Goblins pack gives you and a friend decks so you can join the battle! There are two 60-card decks in the pack, one full of goblin cards, the other packed with elf cards. How do they stack up in head-to-head battles? Is this $20 package worth grabbing? Find out with Gary's Magic Duel Decks review!

Magic: Duel Decks - Elf Deck Review

These Legolas wannabes are ready to raise an army and crush the goblin horde! They aren't too powerful or fast, but once you get enough of them out they're unstoppable. It takes a bit of planning to use this deck well, but the strategy tips included with it give you all the info you need to kick butt!

Elf Deck Thumbs Up:

  • It can gain life.
  • The elves combine into an unstoppable army.
  • Awesome looking card art.

Elf Deck Thumbs Down:

  • The goblins will whup you for the first few turns.
  • No way to destroy enchantments or artifacts.

Magic: Duel Decks - Goblin Deck Review

Playing against this deck is like wrestling with a hyperactive porcupine! It's fast and everything it does hurts. From goblin suicide bombers to fireballs, this deck is all about heaping destruction onto your opponent and their creatures. Don't let the elves catch their breath though, if they get organized you're in deep trouble!

Goblin Deck Thumbs Up:

  • Fast and deadly!
  • Tons of ways to cause damage.
  • A goblin deck is a great excuse to pick your nose while you play.

Goblin Deck Thumbs Down:

  • If the elves get going, you're toast!
  • No way to destroy enchantments or artifacts.
