Pioneer Challenger Decks 2021 is a set of four individual preconstructed 75-card challenger decks that becomes available on October 15, 2021. It is the first official product geared towards the Pioneer format.
Like its previous installments, these challenger decks are built with more tournament-play competitive players in mind. The 75-card decks are geared toward Pioneer 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 will have been previously printed and contain fan-favorite cards that are legal in the Pioneer format. The four decks feature cards from Return to Ravnica through Kaldheim and will remain legal in Pioneer after Standard rotation.
Each package contains:
- a 60-card main deck
- a 15-card sideboard
- Up to 5 double-sided tokens (varies per deck)
- a quick reference guide
- a box capable of holding 75 sleeved cards
Each deck comes with up to 5 double-sided tokens, pulled from the following list (original expansion and token number in parentheses):
