Exclusive MTG Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty Card Preview – Guardians of Oboro
January 31, 2022 Andrew Cheng

We got an exclusive card preview for Magic: The Gathering’s upcoming set, Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty from Wizards of the Coast! Enter Guardians of Oboro, a common rarity blue-aligned Samurai creature with the Defender keyword…and a twist.

As its name suggests, a creature with Defender can only solely defend, so you cannot use it to attack. However, thanks to Guardians of Oboro’s card effect, any modified creatures you control can attack, even if they have the Defender keyword.

Of course, this effect is only applied when Guardians of Oboro is on the battlefield. It is also offered in both regular frame and Samurai frame; the latter features a new art as well. As usual, both versions of the card can be found in both Draft and Set Boosters.

MTG’s Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty will be released on 18 February 2022. If you want to pre-order the new set, check with your favourite local game store!
