If you’re new to MTG Arena, creating your own deck is intimidating. There are dozens of factors that make the best MTG decks work, including spell removal, mana ramp, and card synergy. As a beginner, it’s sometimes better to play a ready-made deck and learn why it works, rather than shuffling 60 cards and hoping it somehow works out. Fortunately, MTG Arena offers several starter decks that are both simple and surprisingly powerful. Here are the best pre-constructed decks in MTG Arena.

What are the best pre-constructed decks in MTG Arena?

Grave Matters (green/black)

Grave Matters is an excellent deck that mainly uses the reel mechanics. Milling causes the top card of your library to enter the graveyard, increasing the power of various creatures in this deck. Grave Matters thrives on polishing the Old Stickfingers card, which gains power equal to the number of creature cards in your graveyard. Still, you should be careful about over-milling your library. If you have to draw at the beginning of your interview, but you have no cards in your library to draw, you lose the game.
