Duel Decks: Elves vs. Goblins is the first set in the Duel Decks series. It was released on November 16, 2007, with an MSRP of US$19.99.  Reprinted with new card frames in December 2014 for Duel Decks' Anthology.
Elves vs. Goblins features two cards with alternate art; Ambush Commander and Siege-Gang Commander. To emphasize the duality of the conflict between the Elves and Goblins, the design and development team deliberately tried to include Elf/Goblin mirrored pairs, such as the deck's rares, Ambush Commander and Siege-Gang Commander, and Heedless One and Reckless One.
In addition to this, the Duel Deck contains a Magic "learn to play" guide, a strategy insert and three creature tokens. The creature tokens are:
- 1/1 Goblin, produced by Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician, Siege-Gang Commander, and Mogg War Marshal.
- 7/7 Elemental with trample, produced by Voice of the Woods
- 1/1 Elf Warrior, produced by Imperious Perfect, Lys Alana Huntmaster, and Elvish Promenade
