There’s a high standard when it comes to whether a Magic: the Gathering card is good enough for Modern. But Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty has an insane power level. There are a bunch of cards that not only seem Modern playable, but may pave their way to being new format Staples.

Here are my top 10 cards that could impact the Modern format.

#10) Fable of the Mirror Breaker

Let’s get one thing out of the way: it will be difficult assembling an infinite combo with Reflection of Kiki-Jiki. The added mana requirement prevents all of the combos that work with the original Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.

But this card is good in its own way. It grinds a ton of value!

The first chapter makes a token similar to Captain Lannery Storm. The second chapter provides a looting effect similar to Seasoned Pyromancer. And Reflection of Kiki-Jiki can still provide a lot of value by copying big creatures with powerful ETB (enters the battlefield) triggers.

#9) March of Otherworldly Light

March of Otherworldly Light is a pretty versatile removal spell. It’s instant speed, and you can exile white cards from you hand to scale up the mana used for the spell.

This card can deal with artifacts, creatures, or enchantments. While Prismatic Ending is better most of the time, March of Otherworldly Light can deal with one thing that Ending can’t: Urza’s Saga.

Because Urza’s Saga is an enchantment, March can exile the Saga for just one mana. And it can kill Construct tokens at instant speed as well.

#8) Containment Construct

Containment Construct | Wizards of the Coast

Within moments of Containment Construct’s reveal, Magic players found a way to break the card in Legacy. There’s a two card combo between Containment Construct and Artificer’s Intuition that involves looping Lion’s Eye Diamond and Elixir of Imortality, resulting in infinite mana and infinite life.

Players have yet to find a way to abuse Containment Construct in Modern. But the card has potential. It’s only a matter of time before it breaks into Modern.

#7) Cloudsteel Kirin

Hammer Time is one of the best decks in Modern. It finds loopholes to get around otherwise large equipment costs.

Sigarda’s Aid is one such loophole to equipping Colossal Hammer for free. The one-mana enchantment also synergizes with Cloudsteel Kirin. You can flash the new Reconfigure spell linto play and automatically equip it to a creature. As long as that creature remains on the battlefield, you can’t lose the game.

#6) Reality Heist

Reality Heist | Wizards of the Coast

Reality Heist is a artifact-focused Dig Through Time. You can play it at a heft discount. And it offers a great deal of card selection.

This card will be tested in Affinity decks, but I think Reality Heist will really shine in artifact combo decks like Grinding Station because it can dig for you combo pieces.

#5) Otowara, Soaring City

Otawara, Soaring City, has a pretty heafty channel cost. But because this land enters the battlefield untapped, the first copy you play in your deck is effectively a free upgrade over an Island.

Izzet Murktide is a deck already in Modern that could play 1-2 copies of this land.

#4) Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire

As with Otawara, Eiganjo is an upgrade over a basic Plains with very little downside. In Modern, I am particularly excited about this card in Death & Taxes decks.

Thalia, Guardian of Thraben will tax your opponents spells, but makes Eiganjo’s channel cost cheaper.

Other decks that will potentially play Eiganjo are Hammer Time and Azorius Control. They probably can’t reduce the cost of Eiganjo by much, but will still play it as a utility land that comes into play untapped.

#3) Secluded Courtyard

Secluded Courtyard | Wizards of the Coast
Unclaimed Territory was already played in Modern. Humans, Goblins, Elementals, and the occasional Sliver decks can all leverage the tribal supporting land.

But Secluded Courtyard is a strict upgrade to Unclaimed Territiory because it addition to making any colored mana to cast spells of a designated creature type, it can also make mana for those creatures’ activated abilities.

#2) Lion Sash

People are calling Lion Sash the white [tooltip]Scavenging Ooze[/tooltips]. But there are some unique synergies with the equipment Cat that Ooze does not have.

Stoneforge Mystic now have a graveyard-hating equipment that you can tutor from the library.

#1) Boseiju, Who Endures

Boseiju, Who Endures, is so good, I am nervous about how it will affect Modern. Between Wrenn and Six and Life from the Loam, you can return Boseiju from you graveyard to your hand to repeatedly blow up your opponents artifacts, enchantments and nonbasic lands every turn.
