Challenger Decks 2022 Decklists

What deck should I choose?

The Mono White Aggro deck would be our recommendation. Other than the fact that the now banned Faceless Haven is included in the Mono White Aggro deck, it offers the most consistency especially in best of one where it can be even more powerful.

Dimir Control can also be chosen to counter it, and hoping the Mono White player doesn’t land a turn two Thalia, Guardian of Thraben on the play.
