Challenger Decks is a set of four individual preconstructed 75-card challenger decks that became available April 6, 2018, with an MSRP of $29.99.[2][3]

Description[edit | edit source]

Like event decks before, challenger decks are built with more tournament-play competitive players in mind. The 75-card decks are geared toward Standard play for the Friday Night Magic player. They are intended to be playable and competitive at a local level right out of the box. All cards will have been previously printed in Standard and are Standard-legal. The cards are chosen almost entirely from the Kaladesh block and Amonkhet block, which means they are legal until about 6 months after the decks release, when they will rotate out.

These decks are intended to be very strong and feature many rares, as well as at least two mythic rares. For Challenger Decks, Magic R&D changed its design process so that they could build them close to release.

The decks are available worldwide in English, with Japanese available in Japan.
