List of Magic: The Gathering theme decks

Contents

Magic: The Gathering theme decks are pre-built decks containing a fixed set of cards. These cards are supposed to complement each other well within a given theme. Theme decks are also a means for newcomers to start the game with a deck instead of a random assortment of cards. Players often buy preconstructed decks and swap out some of the weaker cards for more powerful ones, gradually improving their deck. Otherwise procuring enough cards to build a deck around a coherent theme often requires a significant investment. Theme decks and intro packs are also well suited to be played against each other because they are usually similar in power level. The themes in these decks can also be a quick way to get a feel for the over-arching themes in a new set.

Beginning with the Tempest set in 1997, Wizards of the Coast began producing 60-card theme decks (also called preconstructed decks). Beginning with Shards of Alara in 2008 these were replaced by Intro Packs. These contain a 41-card deck and a booster of the respective expansion. The following is a list of preconstructed theme decks, sorted by product group and then chronologically.
