MtG: 11 Most Expensive Kamigawa Neon Dynasty Cards

1 of 12

Although Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty set in Magic: The Gathering is mainly focused on Ninja creatures, the real value of this set lies in other types of cards, such as lands, planeswalkers, and spells.

The legendary land cycle with Channel mechanic looks especially interesting, and many consider it to be the best one in years. Such high rate of interest in these lands indicates huge market speculations, meaning they may dominate the market in the short term.

As for the rest of the cards, then check out our guide for the most expensive MtG cards in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty right here.

Note that the listed prices correspond to the date of this article's publishing: February 09, 2022.

Takenuma, Abandoned Mire

  • Regular art price: $8.51
  • Extended art price: $14.53

Eternal formats love this card, as most other legendary lands from the new Kamigawa set.

Generally these types of lands get more and more valuable with time, so they all are probably going to get a lot more expensive than they initially started out.

Although there has been a slow decline in price for the black land in the last week due to no interest from standard players, it looks like Takenuma will still find its place in commander, modern, legacy, and even vintage formats.

Nashi, Moon Sage's Scion

  • Regular art price: $9.65
  • Foil art price: $16.20

Here is an example of a card that was designed purely for commander format, and that's where it's going to be played the most. To be even more precise, it's going to be played in the Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow archetype that deals with Ninja creatures.

But one deck in a single format is not enough to make any card relevant on the market, so Nashi, Moon Sage's Scion will steadily dwindle in price to about $3-4 a piece.

Junji, the Midnight Sky

  • Regular art price: $9.65
  • Extended art price: $13.94

Neither of the five new dragon spirits in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty is going to see any serious competitive play. But the casual commander players love the black Junji dragon, so it has a bit of a chance on the market.

Still, all indications show that this card will go down in price, unless some hidden powerful interaction will be discovered in one of the relevant formats.

But other than that, Junji will go down in price and settle in a cozy $3-4 range or less.

Kodama of the West Tree

  • Regular art price: $10.62
  • Extended art price: $13.61

Once more commander players prove that they are the biggest market manipulators in all MtG. It is evident by the way Kodama of the West Tree managed to spike and drop in price in a matter of days.

Sure, it is a strong card that is now considered not only for a number of EDH staples, but also in legacy, a format where players pay very close attention to the power level of each card.

It's really hard to say where this is going, as current market fluctuations in regards to this card are highly unstable. It is probably better to just wait and see.

Tezzeret, Betrayer of Flesh

  • Regular art price: $12.98
  • Borderless art price: $21.81

It is no surprise that such an artifact-heavy set like Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty would introduce a new Tezerret planeswalker. But is it any good? The answer is probably not.

There isn't much talk in any of the competitive formats about a serious use of Tezzeret, Betrayer of Flesh, and you will only see a few casual commander lists pop up here and there.

Since there is not much support for this card in the community, the initial price of $12 will drop even further. The limits of the fall will be determined by its performance.

Hidetsugu Consumes All

  • Regular art price: $13.29
  • Showcase art price: $18.61

This Saga enchantment is one of the most controversial cards in the new set. It has some powerful abilities that could show good results in commander, but eventually it has been deemed as a deceptively good card.

This is indicated by the fact that initially the price for Hidetsugu Consumes All started at $30, which was a surprise to many. However, it lost more than 50% of its value in just a single week.

Will there be any sort of redemption for this card? Most likely not, and we will watch it sink even deeper in price.

The Wandering Emperor

  • Regular art price: $14.50
  • Borderless art price: $35.10

Here is the first planeswalker of the set that actually shows any hope. The Wandering Emperor has three exciting abilities, and it has Flash, which is always very popular with the Magic crowd.

This card is already included in various competitive lists throughout the formats, including commander, modern, and standard. This is, of course, a positive sign, which could lead to some price spikes in the nearest future.

The alternative art copies already gain some serious traction on the market, which supports the price growth theory.

Kaito Shizuki

  • Regular art price: $14.51
  • Borderless art price: $21.37

Kaito Shizuki is definitely a much better version of the blue planeswalker than Tezzeret. Although there isn't much hype for Kaito in the standard community, it is highly anticipated by the modern and commander crowds.

An ability to create unblockable creatures is just fantastic, which is why Dimir Ninja players are so pumped about this card. However, due to it being not too favorable for standard format, it may find itself on a slower upward path than The Wandering Emperor.

In case Kaito gains traction later on in standard format as well, then it may spike in price as well.

Tamiyo, Compleated Sage

  • Regular art price: $21.89
  • Borderless art price: $29.51

The new Tamiyo planeswalker may look like a really impactful card in the whole Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty set, but there is so little buzz for this card in the Magic community that there is no way it will sustain its current price tag.

There are a few Simic lists in commander, standard and modern formats that may include Tamiyo, Compleated Sage, but Simic has never been dominant for too long in any of these environments.

Even though this card allows you to use Phyrexian mana in order to cast it, there is also a big downside of losing loyalty points. There is no chance that this card will show any remarkable results on the market either.

Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant

  • Regular art price: $24.34
  • Showcase art price: $40.30

Jin-Gitaxias is a commander darling, which is now being included in so many different EDH lists. Hence the massive price tag, which will drop due to no interest from any other competitive formats whatsoever.

Since it is also a quite expensive card at 7 mana, there is a big chance that it will only end up in a handful of specific lists that may or may not influence the commander meta too much.

If it does end up in one of the top-tier decks, then it will sustain the $12-15 range at the end, and if not, then it'll drop even further to about $7-8 per card.

Boseiju, Who Endures

  • Regular art price: $35.48
  • Borderless art price: $41.89

The real winning card in the entire Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty set is not a creature, a planeswalker, or an artifact, but a land.

Boseiju, Who Endures is currently tracking across all competitive formats as one of the most sought out MtG cards. The price is already quite high at $35, but it should go even higher, which is so typical for powerful lands.

So don't take too long to grab a playset of these!

Those are the most expensive cards in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty. For more Magic: The Gathering content, card lists, and guides, head over to our MtG hub page here.
