Top 20 Magic: The Gathering Cards from Amonkhet Expansion

1 of 21

Magic: The Gathering received a whole new expansion on Apr. 28 -- Amonkhet. It consists of 264 cards and is the first set of cards out of two in the Amonkhet block. The other one is Hour Of Devastation, which will be released in June.

This first Amonkhet expansion is full of new keywords and mechanics. The most prominent one is Embalm, which allows you to exile creatures from your graveyard in the form of white zombie tokens. The next one is Exert, which helps you buff your creatures for the price of you not being able to untap them next turn.

Since the afterlife theme is central to the whole Amonkhet expansion, the Wizards of the Coast created the split cards with Aftermath mechanic that combine two sorceries, one of which works during play, and the other activated from the graveyard.

As you see, there’s some really exciting stuff coming to Magic: The Gathering. In this list, you will find the top 20 cards that utilize all of the aforementioned mechanics -- and they are sorted in the following manner:

  • 5 common cards
  • 5 uncommon cards
  • 6 rare cards
  • 4 mythic rare cards

Let's get started.
