2019 Challenger Deck declists announced

5 posts in this topic

The declists for the 2019 challenger decks have been released!

https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/challenger-decks-2019-03-18
 


So we're getting:


"United Assault" - It's the "lifegain" variant of White Weenie, with Ajani's Pridemate/Leonin Vanguard. It also comes with 2x History of Benalia ($8 each) and 2x Legion's Landing ($7 each)

"LIghtning Aggro" - Pretty standard Mono-Red Aggro. Comes with the full playset of Goblin Chainwhirlers ($4 each) and Runaway Steam-Kins ($2 each), as well as Rekindling Phoenix ($32)

"Deadly Discovery" - It's the BG Midrange deck before people started splaying blue. Comes with 2 Jadelight Rangers ($14 each) as well as a Vraska planeswalker ($5) and some dual lands. 2x Woodland Cemetery ($4 each) and an Overgrown Tomb ($6.50)

"Arcane Tempo" - This one is a weird blend of 8-Drakes and Izzet Phoenix. You get 2x Niv-Mizzet ($13 each), 1x Arclight Phoenix ($27) and 3x Sulfur Falls ($8 each)


I don't know what the total value of the decks are at the moment, I know there are tons of $1-$3 cards in all the decks, but the Arcane Temopo seems to have the most "big hitters," with Phoenix, Niv-Mizzet, and 3 dual lands.

Not as good as the first ones, and a lack of shocklands, but still pretty decent, solid value, and competitive out of the box. I can imagine the Arcane Tempo deck is going to sell out quickly.

Shameless self promotion here, but instead of typing it all up I recorded a quick video today going over my thoughts on the decks and their prices. Feel free to watch, or not!
(If not, the let me summarize by saying that the decks are totally worth it, and they actually average out to the SAME value as last year's decks, it's just that the value is poorly distributed and too heavily weighted in the Arcane Tempo deck.)
