In this article, I will rank all cards in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty from high-to-low for the purpose of the first-pack, first-pick (P1P1) decision in draft, answering the question “which card would you first-pick?” for every conceivable booster pack. While the list reflects P1P1, this Limited Pick Order (which is based entirely on my own evaluations) is also a reflection of raw power in a vacuum. However, you shouldn’t mindlessly follow this or any other ranking for an entire draft, as synergies matter and valuations change once you commit to an archetype.
If you haven’t done so yet, then check out my article on the 10 two-color archetypes in Neon Dynasty Limited first. Based on the gold signpost uncommons, it sets the stage and provides context for the Limited format.
