Welcome your players into the world of Pioneer with Pioneer Challenger Decks 2021, releasing October 15.

Here's everything you need to know about the first official Pioneer product.

Pioneer Challenger Decks 2021 Product Breakdown

Pioneer is our newest constructed format, so here's a quick refresher: all Standard releases from Return to Ravnica forward are legal in Pioneer (except for a few banned cards). It's perfect for players who want to keep using their cards after the cards are rotated out of Standard (without making the leap to Modern).

Each Pioneer Challenger Deck includes a complete 60-card main deck plus a 15-card sideboard, ready to play right out of the box. These four decks feature cards from Return to Ravnica through Kaldheim and will remain legal in Pioneer even after the next Standard rotation.

These four Pioneer Challenger Decks 2021 are available in English, French, German, and Japanese:

Orzhov Auras

Stand tall! Grow a creature with a stack of auras, keep it safe with protection spells, then crush your foe with a towering attacker. 

Mono Red Burn

Is it hot in here, or is it just you? Overwhelm your opponent with a swarm of creatures, then finish the job with a few well-placed lightning strikes to the face.

Azorius Spirits

These ghosts are friendly… to you. Take to the skies with a squadron of spirits and other fliers that will bring your opponent crashing down.

Lotus Field Combo

Build a stockpile of resources, then take the game in a single turn. Make tons of mana, draw tons of cards, then win instantly with Approach of the Second Sun.

Pioneer Challenger Decks 2021 release on October 15—make sure you've selected your preferred distributor early!
