Neon Dynasty Championship and Alchemy: Kamigawa Preview

This weekend, March 11–13, tune in to the Neon Dynasty Championship where over 230 amazing players will face off in Alchemy and Historic formats for $450,000 in prizes and six invitations to Magic World Championship XXVIII later this year.

Plus, for a sneak peek of what's next for these formats, we'll be previewing cards for the upcoming Alchemy: Kamigawa set during the Top 8 broadcast on Sunday, March 13. Check out the Neon Dynasty Championship Viewers' Guide for more info on where and when to watch!

Score Soft Glow Card Styles in Neon Arcade until March 17

The Neon Arcade event is happening right now, and you can earn Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty soft glow card styles until March 17. The format for Neon Arcade is Alchemy Singleton with a High Score emblem. Find out what the emblem does and get a list of the card styles you can earn in the complete Neon Arcade event details!

We're aware of an issue affecting the Neon Arcade event rewards and players receiving the incorrect card style for Kodama of the West Tree. We plan to deploy a fix to the event rewards later this week and will automatically grant the correct card style to players who received the wrong one shortly thereafter.

The Unbroken Blade, March 18–25

Master the ways of the samurai in The Unbroken Blade event coming March 18–25. You'll have the Studying the Blade emblem, which will keep your solitary attackers strong and slicing through the competition, giving +1/+1 to creatures that attack alone (or a +1/+1 counter if you pay the additional life cost).

Prizes include twelve showcase Samurai card styles from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, such as this one:

Showcase Samurai card style

Out of the Shadows, March 25–April 1

After The Unbroken Blade ends, shift into the Out of the Shadows event to continue filling out your card styles collection—this time the Ninja card styles. From March 25 to April 1, enter the streets of Towashi with the Out of the Shadows emblem that can strengthen your creatures and let them spring from the shadows in surprise attacks on your opponents!

Prizes include twelve showcase Ninja card styles from Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, like this one:
