  • Main Topic - Discussing Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty Previews
  • Disclaimer:
        1. We are only discussing the Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty previews up to 1.30.2020.
        2. Ryan has little to no knowledge of the previewed cards and I have picked 15 of what I believe are the best cards from the set so far for us to see Ryan’s reaction to and discuss. 
  • Reconfigure
          1. Both Artifact Creatures and Equipment
          2. Pay reconfigure cost at sorcery speed to attach the equipment to a creature, move it to another creature, or unnattach for it to be an artifact creature again.
  • Modifications
          1. Equipment, auras you control, and counters are modifications, which can impact different ways modifications can interact with specific cards. For instance, one card (Goro-Goro, a Legendary Creature) can create a 5/5 red Dragon Spirit creature token with flying for 3 colorless mana and two mountains. You can only activate this if you control an attacking modified creature. As a side note, it’s auras you control.
  • Dual Faced Sagas
  • Ninjitsu
        1. Ninjutsu allows a Ninja to sneak onto the battlefield from your hand tapped and attacking. To activate a ninjutsu ability, reveal the card with ninjutsu from your hand and pay the ninjutsu cost. Then, choose an unblocked attacking creature you control and return it to its owner's hand. Remember that an attacking creature is unblocked only after blockers have been declared. If an attacking creature is blocked, but all its blockers are removed before combat damage is dealt, the attacking creature is still blocked, so you can't return that creature to activate a ninjutsu ability.

 

  1. The Ninja will enter the battlefield tapped and attacking the same player or planeswalker the returned creature was attacking. Blockers have already been declared this combat, so the Ninja should have a clear path to deal combat damage. Technically, you can activate ninjutsu during the combat phase after combat damage has been dealt. This won't normally come up, but if your attacking creature has first strike, there are some tricks to be had.
  • Channel
    1. Each channel ability allows you to discard the card with the ability from your hand for an effect
  • White
        1. Kyodai, Soul of Kamigawa
        2. Lion Sash
        3. Era of Enlightenment
        4. Mention Shrine
  • Blue
        1. Armguard Familiar
        2. Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant
        3. The Reality Chip
        4. Agent of the Future
  • Black
        1. Hidetsugu, Devouring Chaos
        2. Tatsunari, Toad Rider
        3. Prowling Shredder <- not english
  • Red
        1. Goro-Goro, Disciple of Ryuei
        2. Scrap Welder <-
        3. Tempered in Solitude
  • Green
        1. Kodama of the West Tree
        2. Kappa Tech-Wrecker
  • Multi-Color
        1. Kaito Shizuki
        2. Satoru Umezama
        3. Silver Fur Master
        4. Jukau Naturalist
        5. Tamiyo, Compleated Sage.
  • Colorless
        1. Mirror Box
  • Land
      1. Boseiju, Who Endures
      2. Ukiyo-E (ookeyoh-eh) Lands - The art for the ukiyo-e lands is inspired by Japanese woodblock print styles. There are ten ukiyo-e lands, two of each basic land type.
  1. Summary
    1. So last time we did an episode like this we received positive feedback, but that is lost somewhere in the circular construct we know as time. Hopefully, this one is good, but for reals let us know what you think! I always aim to make content our esteemed listeners will enjoy.

  • Cards that are good are for their value

 

    1. We are realizing (more and more each day) that Magic cards are expensive. The thought of convincing someone new to play Commander is hard. So, I thought maybe this is something that could help newer players, or at the least help folks that got some Gift Cards for Christmas

    1. Disclaimer: 2021 was a weird year. Neither Ryan nor I played at our LGS, nor did they open for play. Due to this Ryan was able to play less due to time restrictions. I played quite a bit in the first half of the year but began to both drop off in playing and recording games, so I would say my data represents the first half of the year.
