Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty puts players back on a plane that many have wanted to revisit. A world once ravaged by a war between ghosts and humans is now returning as a thriving futuristic landscape. When the players first ventured on the Kamigawa plane, there were several mechanics people loved. Unfortunately, there were also many gameplay issues plaguing Kamigawa. It was a set where players were in love with the story but were a little dissatisfied with the card choices.

Players are excited to see some new standard sized cards. At the moment, players are a little disinterested in an outdated meta. The new Alchemy format was Wizards’ answer to the problem, but didn’t solve the problem for players who still play tabletop magic. Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty will add many new options to standard players. There are still some tribes that haven’t received as many tools as werewolves or vampires, so Kamigawa may be the set that gives extra attention to the less loved tribes.
