From MTG Salvation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Kamigawa block is the tenth block, consisting of the large expansion Champions of Kamigawa (CHK symbol.png) and the two small expansions Betrayers of Kamigawa (BOK symbol.png) and Saviors of Kamigawa (SOK symbol.png). The block came out in 2004-2005. [1]

The theme of this block is based on Japanese mythology.

Keywords introduced in this block: Bushido, Channel, Epic, Ninjutsu, Offering, Soulshift, Splice, Sweep.

Flip cards, arcane (the first sorcery and instant subtype), and shrine (the new enchantment subtype) appeared in this block.

[edit] Development codes

On the development codenames for the Kamigawa block, MTG.com columnist Mark Rosewater wrote: [2]

It was almost codenamed Blood, Sweat, and Tears, but we decided we didn't want back-to-back large expansions with codenames both starting with "B."
