Challenger Decks 2020 is a set of four individual preconstructed 75-card challenger decks that became available on March 27, 2020. The earlier announced release date of April 3, 2020 was bumped up as one of the measures to fight the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Description[edit | edit source]
Like its previous installment, these 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 had been previously printed in Standard and were Standard-legal.
The decks are available worldwide in English, with Japanese available in Japan.
Contents[edit | edit source]

- a 60-card main deck
