Two-Color Decks (Season 2023)[ | ]

With the March 27, 2023 update, the new player onboarding experience on Arena was revamped. The old system of unlocking preconstructed decks through daily quests was retired in favor of "Starter Deck Duel", a new permanently available event. Unlocked after completing the tutorial, this new event lets you pick any of the 10 preconstructed decks and adds the chosen deck to your collection after you win a game with it. After 3 wins in the Starter Deck Duel event, another newly added mode unlocks: "Spark Ranked". This mode allows the use of already unlocked preconstructed decks in a ranked ladder only available to new players. Reaching the highest rank unlocks all the remaining decks.

Note: Experienced players can skip this whole process by clicking the "Unlock Play Modes" button under "Account" (bottom left in the Options menu), which awards all 10 decks immediately.

The new decks feature cards and mechanics from the sets Dominaria United, The Brothers' War, Phyrexia: All Will Be One, March of the Machine, March of the Machine: The Aftermath, as well as The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth. They also include cards from the corresponding Alchemy and Arena Base Set.

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 Base Set.

Five monocolored decks are unlocked after the tutorial and can be upgraded by completing the new player Color Challenges.

In March 2022, the Arena Base Set was removed from Bo1 Standard. From that moment on, the cards (and thus the monocolored decks) were only legal in digital formats like Alchemy and Historic.[2]During Bot Matches, Sparky uses these decks.
