With the Arena Open coming up, and Day 1 of the event being Sealed, it’s important to understand what makes this format tick, so here’s everything you need to know about Neon Dynasty Sealed to take down Day 1 of the Open.
If you take away one thing from this article, it should be to play two-drops in your Neon Dynasty Sealed decks. Two-mana plays are generally seen as somewhat necessary in most Sealed formats, but they are disproportionately impactful in Neon Dynasty for a few key reasons.
The first is ninjitsu, which not only makes your two-mana creatures more impactful as things to return in the mid game, but also important as blockers for your opponents’ creatures, to prevent them from being able to get an advantage on board by activating ninjitsu on an impactful creature. As a result, getting an early board presence is important to either set up your own mid game or avoid falling too far behind.
