While I was at the Ixalan prerelease on Saturday at my FLGS The Hobbit Hole I noticed he had the Chandra Planeswalker deck for Kaladesh. I don’t think I’ve admitted this on here, but Chandra is my favourite planeswalker, followed by Illiana and Nissa. When I got home I saw that the matching deck with it was Nissa.
So what do we get for our money (£10 each) in each Planeswalker deck? I’m glad you asked, you get the following:
- Foil Planeswalker card
- 60 card deck (includes the above card)
- 2 kaladesh booster decks
- Quick ref card
- Strategy guide
- Cardboard deck box
Using my now tried and tested costing of a booster pack, the boosters alone would be valued at between £7 – £8. Plus you get the preconstructed 60 card deck, with the foil planeswalker card, and cardboard deck box. I would say that you are getting more than your monies worth, but not by a great margin.
Here are the cards I pulled from the two boosters included in the Chandra deck.
Here are the pulls from the two boosters included in the NIssa deck.
Four booster packs and two foils. That’s not bad.
The art on the two cardboard deck boxes is super cool. I’ve yet to play with these two decks they did only arrive yesterday. But I do think planeswalker decks are good value, especially for casual and noob players like me.
