Dolmen Gate allows you to attack without jeopardizing the safety of your creatures, reaping the benefits of attack triggers with Isshin.

Remember how I said Isshin was popular. Well, here’s another card that increased in price this week because of Isshin.

Reconnaissance rose from $11.00 to $15.00+ this week. This card fills a similar role to Dolmen Gate in that you can attack with a creature, and before an opposing blocker would kill it, you can remove your creature from battle.
