Preconstructed theme decks featured in Magic: The Gathering Arena.

New Player Decks (Standard 2021)[edit | edit source]

The new player decks for Standard 2021 were added with the August 13, 2020, update. They feature cards from Throne of Eldraine, Theros Beyond Death, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, Core Set 2021, and the new Arena Beginner Set. A change from previous iterations is that the monocolor decks will remain rotation-proof beyond Standard 2021. The two-color decks will continue to be updated with each rotation.

Monocolor Decks (Arena Beginner Set)[edit | edit source]

Five monocolor decks are unlocked after the tutorial and can be upgraded by completing the new player Color Challenges. Cards that are replaced through these upgrades are automatically moved to the sideboard. Unlike previous monocolor decks, these decks were built using cards from a special non-rotating set called the Arena Beginner Set (ANB) to ensure they remain legal beyond Standard 2021.
