It was super fun working on this together with Spiked and the amazing team over at Wizards.
We look forward to hearing your feedback on this set!

This is certainly a good concept and I’m excited to see it come to fruition.

Just wanted to note… if you proceed with Infinikey on this project (maybe not the greatest idea given their track record on previous reverse dyesub projects), double-check that the minibars will be convex. IIRC, they only have convex 2.25u and 2.75u, with the rest being concave.

OOOh thanks for the heads up on the minibars.

We are getting a full Prototype from Infinikey for the set. And i will be adjusting the novelties for optimum appearance. I of course will post all adjustments for everyone to see :D

Addressing your comments on Infinikey
-We've discussed their track record with them extensively and have put together a plan to avoid previous issues.

-Infinikey has complied with our licensees Ethical Sourcing and Compliance for added reassurance
-We are already working on color matching the first prototype for the best final product.
-I will follow up with IFK regarding the convex vs convave mini bars, thank you for calling that out!

not a MTG fan so not sure how well theme is deployed, but I do like seeing more IP sets

fwiw I think you'd be better off going with another manu other than IFK from a quality/sales perspective, but just my 2 cents

goodluck guys!

Would you separate the mana symbols (Forest, plains, swamp, mountain and island) to another kit than base?
That's the only things I'd actually willing to buy :)

Coming from an ex-Legacy format player / current Modern-format MTG player who played and loved the game since 1999.
I think this set is a good representation of the current Neon Dynasty expansion while not so much for the (much preferred personally) older MTG lore and origins.

Metalworker pfp opinion time :)

Interesting to see an mtg set spring up, though I personally believe the opportunity was lost on representing a new set, when much of the love is in the old artwork and that 1990s-early 2000s feel. While new Kamigawa is certainly a piece of mtg, its not one that I personally think best represents Magic as a whole.

Thanks for this feedback. For this set in particular we are not planning on doing separate kits.
The intention of this set was to go after the Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty theme with it's pretty unique look within the MTG universe.
That being said we are also working on a future Magic the Gathering themed set that pays an ode to the classic MTG lore and its origins

Are we talking a potential Nico Bolas set?!? If so sign me up right now.

In regards to Neon Dynasty, the colors alone make me interested. And it being MTG themed on top is just awesome.

Hmm... I have mixed feelings about this set. Good to see WoTC onboard and making it official, slight pessimism on how they may view this hobby long term, but that's another discussion.
It's a solid representation for an official MtG set, but I'm not sold with Beleren being used as legends. I appreciate that it's a proper MtG trademark but that typeface has problems, it's fine on the title of a card, but as a whole keycap set, not so much. Should also be using lowercase instead of small caps on the mods

Man. You guys really like a gamble. Reverse dye sub in IFK. Let's just hope this doesn't show up shrunken (or super delayed) like the other ones. Unfortunate that the first officially licensed MTG keyset wasn't ran with NK and GMK. They have done a superb job with the Star Wars license.

I'll remain cautiously pessimistic on this one. But I hope it goes well.

I stopped actively playing MTG in 2002 (let's be honest, no one liked Judgement, no one likes Judgement, no one will ever like Judgement) and although I've never stopped collecting, I'm still almost exclusively in vintage and even the OG Kamigawa is not a block that really interests me - I like the set, I don't know anything about Neon Dynasty besides Boseiju being one of the best card arts they've done in ages so I can't criticize anything specific.

I'll definitely be buying, even if I didn't like it I'd still buy just to show appreciation and to incentivize further collaborations for something I may enjoy more,

That being said we are also working on a future Magic the Gathering themed set that pays an ode to the classic MTG lore and its origins

Oh God no. GMK 2 year wait times, GMK pricing, especially to create new molds for the sublegends in top of already presumably inflated pricing due to license fees, shining ABS.

A different manu like Milkyway could've been a better choice but dear God not more GMK.

Meh. People act like IFK won't also take a least a year+. Personally I'm willing to pay the extra price and wait when it comes to licensed products. For the quality of both cap size and legends, and color, which you just don't get outside abs, for which GMK still does some of the best. I can buy 50 random colorways in MW all year long. Something like this would be worth the extra cost and effort.

When the final product takes two years anyway and comes out inconsistently dyed and with shrunken dimensions I just hope it doesn't scare WotC from allowing IP to be used for more themed colorways in the future.

Haven't been into MTG since forever ago, but it sure does inspire a pretty keycap set.  Hope there will be a kit with pink spacebars.
