Wizards of the Coast will release 2022 Pioneer Challenger Decks on November 4th worldwide except in Europe, which is delayed until December 9th. 2022 Pioneer Challenger Decks provide players with a 75-card preconstructed Pioneer deck and sideboard. Challenger Decks are geared towards playing with friends and at a Friday Night Magic event. This year's Pioneer Challenger decks feature the archetypes of Izzet Phoenix, Dimir Control, Gruul Stompy, and Orzhov Humans.
Pioneer Challenger Decks retail for around $40 and provide excellent value to players. Reprinted cards found in Pioneer Challenger Decks greatly exceed their retail price before release. Players interested in building a top-tier deck can save money by purchasing a Pioneer Challenger Deck and upgrading it at their own pace. Also, reprinted singles found in Pioneer Challenger Decks usually drop in price depending on the number of copies across decks. Some sought-after singles can decrease prices by as much as 75-90%.
In my recent TCGplayer Infinite article, Pioneer Challenger 2022 Decks Buyer's Guide, I highlight which 2022 Pioneer Challenger Decks provide the best opportunity to compete locally. Also, I share the top cards per precon deck for players to pick up for their collection. Playing Pioneer cards like Arclight Phoenix, Thing in the Ice, and Extinction Event will soon become available for a considerable discount. You can use this opportunity to enter the Pioneer format with a budget-friendly Challenger Deck or grab high-demand singles at reduced prices.
