MTG Starter Kit 2023 Decklists

MTG Starter Decks are exactly what they sound like - Prebuit decks made to be an easy on-ramp to Magic: The Gathering for players who are new to the game and don't know where to start. While they aren't powerhouse decks, they can be a straightforward way for newer players to get a taste of the game without the hassle of deck building. Today, I would like to review the cards from the most recent batch. So, without further ado, let's jump into the 2023 MTG Starter Kit deck lists.

The starter decks are one of the many ways Wizards of the Coast offers new players to jump on board with Magic: The Gathering. THat said, if you're new to the game, know someone who wants to get into it and doesn't know where to start, or are looking for an onramp to non-commander gameplay, these decks might be a good option.
