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. 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 are available worldwide in English, with Japanese available in Japan.
The first series of Challenger decks sold well, and players loved them. The line will be continued.
