Magic: the Gathering players duked it out in both Alchemy and Historic at the Neon Dynasty Championship last weekend. Alan Gadbois covered some of the best performing decks and cards from the tournament, but there’s one card that stood out to me as a MUST-BUY: Fable of the Mirror-Breaker.

***UPDATE: Fable of the Mirror-Breaker is Rising in Play in Price!

Fable of the Mirror Breaker

Fable of the Mirror-Breaker stood out to me in my early evaluations of Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. Its first chapter makes a token similar to Captain Lannery Storm. Chapter II has is a great loot ability. And finally, the saga transforms into a nerfed Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.

Reflection of Kiki-Jiki doesn’t have the same combo potential that the OG Kiki does, but making a token of your best creature every turn creates some serious value.

Why Buy Fable of the Mirror-Breaker?

There’s a very low risk to buying Fable of the Mirror-Breaker right now because of how cheap the card is. At the time of writing, the regular printing of Fable of the Mirror-Breaker is less than $0.50! The showcase version of the card isn’t that much more expensive, coming in at about $1.00.

Additionally, the multiple top 8 performances from the Neon Dynasty Championship demonstrate the potential of the card. If it’s strong enough to do well in Alchemy, then it’s certainly strong enough for Standard, and could break into Pioneer as well.
