Editors note: The following information has not yet been confirmed or denied by Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and should be treated as such until an official statement has been made.
As we approach preview season for Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, two cards, appearing to be from the upcoming set, have been leaked.
Shared to the MagicTCG subreddit, the leaks in question come from two separate posters, neither of which have addressed their source or where the cards came from.
Submitted by user Freemantic, the first image appears to show a legendary land that taps for white mana and marks the return of a mechanic first introduced in Saviors of Kamigawa — channel. The channel ability for this card allows you to pay 2W and discard it to deal four damage to an attacking or blocking creature. Additionally, the channel cost is discounted for each legendary creature you control, making it a strong and potentially cheap combat trick.
The second image, submitted by user mistercimba appears to show a rare, token-generating sorcery. If real, this card would confirm the return of the Samurai tribe in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. It’s also worth noting that the X cost for this spell is unique, as it impacts both you and your opponent — generating X white 2/2 Samurai creature tokens for you, and X minus one for your opponents.
So what do you think of these leaks? Are they real? Let us know what you think in the comments.
Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty is scheduled to release on February 18, 2022. View our official preview gallery.
