Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty’s Blade Of The Oni Set To Carve Up Opponents

New equipment creature should make the cut in most aggressive decks.

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and TCG Player, check out an aggressive two-drop Equipment creature from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty — Blade of the Oni!

At the absolute floor you get a 3/1 with menace for two mana. Now take a look at the powerful reconfigure ability.


Equipped creature has base power and toughness 5/5, has menace, and is a black Demon in addition to its other colors and types.

When a 3/1 with menace no longer cuts it, Blade of the Oni can be equipped to another creature to turn it into a 5/5 Demon with menace for four mana. It also works well in multiples by being able to equip to another, so feel free to run the max four copies if you’re looking to get aggressive.

So what do you think of Blade of the Oni? While it looks priced to sell in Standard, can it cut the mustard in older formats like Pioneer and Modern?

KamigawaNeon Dynasty is scheduled to release on February 18, 2022. View our official preview gallery.
