A total of eight Magic: The Gathering Commander only cards will appear within Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty set booster packs, containing Shrine lord that supports all five colors and a cycle of new Myojin spirits on the plane.
Scheduled to release globally on Feb. 18, set booster packs for Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty will have one slot dedicated to Commander-only cards. A cycle of five Myojin legendary spirits take up five of the slots, showcasing Indestructible counters. Shrines are represented via Go-Shintai of Life’s Origin, a lord that supports shrine tribal themes. And the final two of eight Commander-only cards in set boosters are Yoshimaru, Ever Faithful, and Ruthless Technomancer. Extended art versions of these eight Commander-only cards may also appear in NEO Collector boosters.

There are a total of five Myojin Commander-only cards, each representing one of the five Magic colors.

And each has a total CMC of eight.
