Magic the Gathering

2019 edition of the Challenger Deck series

The goal of the Challenger Deck series are playable right out of the box and, ideally, legitimate top-tier Standard decks with just a handful of upgrades. All of the 2019 Challenger Decks are a good buy, with more value in cards than there cost, so in some sense, you can’t really go wrong picking up any (or all) of the deck in the series.

So what do you get for your money?
