The MechWarrior Pilot Deck: Champions of the Inner Sphere I supplement was created by Catalyst Game Labs as a reward item available during their crowdfunding effort for the BattleTech: Clan Invasion [Kickstarter campaign] which ran from 18 July 2019 to August 18 2019. A number of decks described as premium MechWarrior Pilot Cards were announced as being in development, with the first two packs being unlocked when the $310,000 USD funding target was reached. Champions of the Inner Sphere I was one of the first two packs announced, although it was announced simply as "Champions of the Inner Sphere". By the end of the campaign five such Pilot Decks had been announced, and a sixth was added after the campaign.
Each backer who pledged at the Bloodnamed/150 USD level received a choice of one of the first two decks - Champions of the Inner Sphere I or Warriors of Kerensky I - for free. This deck could also be purchased as an add-on after the campaign for $15 USD.
This deck consists of 55 Pilot Cards detailing characters from across the Inner Sphere. One side of the each card has the standard Pilot Card entry; the other side depicts a character illustration commissioned for one of the Kickstarter backers. Each pilot's name, nickname and quote was also based on detail submitted by Kickstarter backers.
