The MechWarrior Pilot Deck: Mercenaries of the Inner Sphere II accessory 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. By the end of the campaign five such Pilot Decks had been announced; Mercenaries of the Inner Sphere II wasn't announced until after the campaign had ended, and was created as a free reward to offset the shipping costs for pledges.
This deck consists of 55 Pilot Cards detailing characters from a range of Mercenary Commands. 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.
