Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty release is right around the corner! With all of the previews out, there’s a lot of great cards in the set! Today we’re going to break down our top 10 cards in the set. We’ll be talking about the top 10 cards for each format in the coming days, so stay tuned. But with that out of the way, let’s dive into it.

Honorable Mention

Our honorable mention goes to the Go-Shintai cycle. While seeing Shrines get more support is amazing, I think that these cards are very narrow and will be only good in Shrine decks, specifically in Commander and Historic.

10. Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant

Wizards of the Coast

Our number 10 is Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant. J-I-double N-G is back and in big way. He’s got one powerful effect that’s fantastic for commander. As a player who grew up during the original Praetor era in New Phryexia, seeing them make a come back is very nostalgic to me. I think Jin is definitely going to be a popular card to pick up.

9. Tamiyo, Compleated Sage

Wizards of the Coast

Number 9 on our list is Tamiyo, Compleated Sage. Our very first Phyrexian Planeswalker, and the return of Phyrexian mana. This was a shock to see at the end of the Announcement Stream, and the fact that this card is good is a bonus!

8. Kaito Shizuki

Wizards of the Coast

Number 8 is our first Ninja Planeswalker, Kaito Shizuki. Ninjas are a main theme in this set, and having a very strong 3 mana walker that’s also a ninja is great. This will be a great addition to Ninja decks as he can protect himself the first turn he comes in, and can help trigger Ninjutsu.

7. Tezzeret, Betrayer of Flesh

Wizards of the Coast

Number 7 is Tezzeret, Betrayer of Flesh. Tezzeret makes his return to the game, and this version of him is great for your artifact commander decks. Additionally, this can do great things for equipment, as that’s also an activated ability, so you can equip for cheaper.

6. Fable of the Mirror-Breaker / Reflection of Kiki-Jiki

Number 6 is Fable of the Mirror-Breaker / Reflection of Kiki-Jiki. Kiki-Jiki is a old school fan favorite, and seeing a more balanced reincarnation of him is awesome to see. The number of cards needed to wombo combo doubles with the 1 mana cost, but with cards like Panharmonicon, anything is possible.

5. The Dragon Cycle

The Dragon cycle from original Kamigawa block is another fan favorite, and seeing the continuation of the line in these new incarnations are nice upgrades on those dragons. Each of these are great additions to the game as solid midrange threats with effects that are all fantastic for multiple formats.

4. Mirror Box

Wizards of the Coast
Mirror Box is our number 4 card, and while this may seem like a strange pick so high up, this card has a TON of potential. This is a nice call back to Mirror Gallery, but it’s better. Cheaper and additional upside effects can allow for this card to really make some decks possible.

3. The Wandering Emperor

Wizards of the Coast

Kicking off our top 3 is The Wandering Emperor. Yes The Wanderer is back and her story is now more developed! The card is also fantastic, especially for white decks. Being able to use planeswalker abilities at instant speed feels VERY strong, and the suite of abilities here are great!

2. Satoru Umezawa

Wizards of the Coast

Number 2 is Satoru Umezawa. This bad ass crime boss ninja really is giving more depth to the Ninja archetype, both thematically and mechanically. Giving all of your creatures the Ninjutsu ability can really enable some crazy shenanigans.

1. Boseiju, Who Endures

Wizards of the Coast

Our top card from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty is Boseiju, Who Endures. The first two things that we wanted to see in the set was the return of Boseiju and Legendary Lands, and we got both in this one card. Boseiju, Who Shelters All was a very strong card in it’s day, and the versatility of this card in formats like Modern and Legacy are incredible.
