A challenger deck is a constructed competitive Magic: The Gathering deck sold by Wizards of the Coast. The first Challenger decks were released in April, 2018.[1] This product line replaces the Duel Decks series, but is much closer in theme and power to the Event decks that were discontinued after Battle for Zendikar.

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.

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 will be available worldwide in English, with Japanese available in Japan.
