Magic; The Gathering's 2022 Challenger Decks released on April 1st 2022. The precon decks provide an affordable entry point to building Mono-White Aggro, Dimir Control, Gruul Stompy, and Rakdos Vampires for Standard. All four decks contain playable Standard cards and hold an estimated value (EV) above the expected MSRP.
In addition to buying Challenger Decks as a sealed product, players may opt to pick up reprinted singles at a discount. Typically Challenger Decks provide an influx of supply for in-demand singles, thus driving their average market prices lower. My latest article, Challenger Deck 2022 Buyer's Guide, found on TCGplayer Infinite covers some of the best buys for players interested in building Standard or Pioneer decks. Don't miss out on the chance to purchase Den of the Bugbear, Goldspan Dragon, and other powerful cards at 20-75% off.

New Capenna's five Commander Precon Decks offer an opportunity for Wizards of the Coast to reprint past shard-colored cards and other Commander staples.
