Champions of Kamigawa introduces several new mechanics to Magic as well as the first Legendary Enchantments and more Legends than in any set ever -- including Legends!
- Bushido -- Creatures that follow the Japanese "way of the warrior" become bigger when they fight other creatures in combat.
- Flip Cards -- How does a Legend become a Legend? In these cases, they're regular creatures who can achieve great things in the course of a Magic game, gaining new abilities and even new names and creature types.
- Soulshift -- The Spirit creatures of Kamigawa can return from the dead when their compatriots die.
- Splice onto Arcane --This ability of some instants and sorceries allows them to piggyback onto other spells to get their effect without losing the card.
A gang of akki goblins try to flee from an angry ice spirit that appears from out of nowhere. A cloud of bizarre creatures emerge from a samurai's heirloom lanter, attacking him while he sleeps. At the Minamo School, students of wizardry fight nonstop to stem a flow of strange beings that materialize from within the Great Waterfall.
The war with the Spirit World continues.
Meet the Champions of Kamigawa!
