Today, Wizards of the Coast have revealed this year's Magic: The Gathering Challenger Decks, four new ready-to-play 75-card decks that are intended to be playable for competitive Standard format. The decks include United Assault (mono-white), Lightning Aggro (mono-red), Deadly Discovery (Golgari Explore), and Arcane Tempo (Izzet Tempo).

Last year's Challenger decks were successful so it's not surprising to see Wizards of the Coast release a new batch of ready-to-play Standard decks this year. These Challenger Decks are definitely great for those who are just starting to play Standard or getting back to the format. I would probably pick Arcane Tempo among these 4 as it includes a copy of Arclight Phoenix, one of the most powerful cards in Standard and Modern right now.
