Didn’t the booster versions and deck versions have the same numbers?
Would be easier if you put them into your post, so we can have an easier match in our collections

If I recall correctly, only re-released cards in the collector tin (included Lethal Luminosity Deck and Deadly Decay Deck) that contained Mist Rias, Mongrel Man, Vashuna and Syforce had different collector numbers to the regular set prints.

Yes, cards in the DM10 decks have the original set numbers. However, you may have noticed that cards from sets 10-12 have different texture/surface than the first 9 sets. Every card, even the ones from the older sets, in these DM10 decks have the new texture. It's a minor difference but since it's consistent I consider them as a different release. This may not apply to Vreemah since it's holo. I haven't checked it.
I may already have them all but since I don't have access to my collection atm I'd like to buy them just in case.

You certainly have been very thorough to notice something like that. I only noticed that the first theme decks released had sometimes stronger coloring than their regular set counterparts.

I doubt anyone here has those cards separately but quite recently I saw these decks sold on eBay for a rather cheap price.

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about but are interested, I made this quick video comparing old and new versions.
It's how the cards' surface reflect light. Old ones have more texture. They are grainy while new ones are more smooth and matt.
If you have difficulties detecting fake cards - well this may be even harder. Difference between DM09 and DM10 is slightly harder to spot than difference between DM01-DM02 and DM10.
Also, there are both version of Vreemah. Holo side is the same but background has the different textures.

I'm just wondering a bit why your interested in those very slightly differences. There seems to be a fascination for you i don't quite catch. Is it only about noticing the small details? Or the higher quality?

I've had the 'collect one of each card' (TCG) objective for something like a decade now. For the past couple years, only missing cards are the few super rare promo cards. If there is something new to add to my collection, I'll take it.
I don't really care about small random error type of fluctuation in cards. But this is something I consider as a different release / variation for these few cards. It's consistent, origin of these cards is clear and the difference can be seen.
I understand that many doesn't care about this type of variation. Some people even find collecting the 46 cards from the tin too hardcore. But I have background from philately, numismatics and other collectibles. Within these other collecting hobbies, this kind of variation is normal thing to collect. They even get listed to catalogues etc.
My point is that material matters - not only what is printed on it.
