Challenger Decks 2021 Product Breakdown

Each Challenger Deck includes a complete 60-card main deck plus a 15-card sideboard, ready to play right out of the box.

With fan-favorite cards from Kaldheim, Zendikar Rising, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, Core Set 2021, Theros Beyond Death, and Throne of Eldraine, these Challenger Decks are forged from some of the most powerful strategies in Standard.

Challenger Decks 2021 is made up of four different decks—product shots for each deck are now available on our Marketing Materials page.

Azorius Control

Permission denied! Negate your opponent’s resources through counterspells and removal, and then finish the job with a flock of fearsome flying creatures.

Dimir Rogues

Sneak and destroy! Load up your opponent’s graveyard to activate your rogues’ special abilities, and then go for the throat with powerful legends.

Mono Red Aggro

This red deck wins. Use burn spells to keep your opponent off-balance, and then utterly overwhelm them with a steady stream of fierce and fiery friends.

Mono Green Stompy

Who’s the beatdown? You are. Stomp all over your opponent with a barrage of beefy creatures ready to fight anyone or anything that gets in your way.

All four Challenger Decks 2021 are available in English, French, German, and Japanese.

Due to shipping issues, Challenger Decks will be delayed in some APAC countries. New dates will be announced when update is available.

As a reminder, we encourage organizers to facilitate virtual tabletop events and other remote play opportunities with community channels like Discord—it's a great tool for organizing webcam Friday Night Magic for your community.

These decks release on April 2—make sure you've selected your preferred distributor for Challenger Decks 2021 today.
