Editor’s Note: The 2022 Pioneer Challenger Decks were confirmed on Weekly MTG on Thursday.

What appears to be the next set of Pioneer Challenger decks were leaked via Amazon and posted to the Magic TCG Subreddit today.

User Armkowy posted a screenshot from Amazon, showing the boxes of the four decks slated to release on October 14. The preconstructed decks come with a 60-card main deck, 15-card sideboard, and are ready to play out of the box at the local game store level.

The 2022 lineup of Pioneer Challenger decks look to be Orzhov Humans, Izzet Phoenix, Gruul Stompy, and Dimir Control. The pricing listed shows the total in Polish zloty, which translates to roughly $53 each.

The images match with what last year’s decks looked like, though the 2021 decks were priced at $41-$43.

Speculation on what cards would be included in the decks quickly took over the Reddit thread. What do you think of the decks and the possible contents of each?
