They accidentally showed the gold saga art on the story thing then switched it to the right one
so what the first thing we say must be yosei's saga
by the way that dog better be a good card.
ps where’s the art on mtg first ever DJ?
oh that yellow saga art was mistakenly put on the short story but replaced by the right one was it really on the board if I may ask?
Personally I hope the dog is not better than 'okay'. Ragavan threw a what's it called? Some kind of...maybe a wrench? in my plans to get foil copies of all the cutest creature art. I was the guy who was upset that the banned in Commander companion was the adorable otter, with no regard for what it actually did.

Project Booster Fun makes it less fun to open a booster.
The lady weaving digital sagas looks like a reference/ probably a descendant of Reki, the History of Kamigawa.
Maybe it will be a similar card but deal with all historic cards since she looks straight up like she deals with sagas.
I like the updated looks of the Kitsune and Orochi.
But a set like this would work way better in 2 or 3 sets , as its too many different locations and mixing it all together makes it worse than refined doses.
(Could also make a set that focuses on the old specifically, the future specifically and the 3rd then mixes it up)
I wonder why they changed the Kitsunes' faces? I know the originals where weird, but I always felt it fit the theme.
Yeah, the new kitsune seem to have a lack of facial diversity in comparison, as if all of them subscribed to the same facial powder and face paint. I hope for a story with strong flavour about why the kitsunes' faces changed that way in-universe (rather like the one that Wizards has to give for how the orochi lost their legs and the one they should give for how kappas have been brought back (or at least "brought back") from Shell of the Last Kappa-implied extinction - the kappa one they can explain with cloning, the orochi...).
I mean... what did you all expect? I was almost fearing that the cyberpunk elements would be relatively rare in this set with how little we saw them in the rest of the art so far (and how downplayed they seem to be). If you do such a thing, then go all the way or go home. The story that has been posted previously already stated that the big cities at least use electricity (so much that Kamis of technology and electricity seem to be common) for computers, a form of internet, touch pads, robot drones, camera surveillance, holograms... a DJ playing some music isn't even showing the height of Kamigawan technology in this era. If you don't like futuristic technology in your fantasy stories then Magic hasn't been up your alley since pretty much its beginning (see the Thran's satellite launches and all the robots of the Brother's War for example).
I have to say though that this set is truly in danger of having to cram way too much stuff in, I would have preferred a two set structure (and Innistrad 3 could have been done in one set in my opinion). I am still very much excited for it.

Yeah, the art and flavour look fantastic so far...and I'm getting similar vibes to Throne of Eldraine with this set.
In short, because of these such flavour-strong promotional vibes, I fear Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty will similarly not be a powerful set (I'd estimate Crimson Vow levels of not-powerful), at least when it comes to Modern and up. We only perceive Throne of Eldraine as powerful - and arguably, so does Wizards - because Oko, Thief of Crowns and Once Upon a Time are ban-worthy levels of jacked. Drop them from consideration and Emry, Lurker of the Loch feels like the most powerful remaining card for a mile, with everything behind her being interchangeable role players at best (and often even being interchangeable in practice in tournament results - Drown in the Loch is enjoying one hell of a heyday right now, but that card has perennially disappointed me a la Prismatic Ending and Portable Hole due to repeatedly failing when you want hard removal the most). ...OK, Brazen Borrower and Bonecrusher Giant have solid niches in Cascade decks, but Brazen Borrower's body often hasn't felt like it's worth a card, and Bonecrusher Giant has proven itself to be interchangeable (with stuff like Seasoned Pyromancer and Dead // Gone) even in Cascade decks.
I fear such emphasis on flavour in the promotional phase is hiding a lack of power and tournament impact in the release phase.
