Notes and Rules Information for Niko Aris:
  • Shard is a new predefined token, similar to Food and Treasure. A Shard token is a colorless enchantment with “{2}, Sacrifice this enchantment: Scry 1, then draw a card.” Shard is a new enchantment subtype. (2021-02-05)
  • If Niko Aris enters the battlefield without being cast, they were cast for a cost other than their mana cost, or if X was chosen to be 0, the enters-the-battlefield ability won’t create any Shard tokens. (2021-02-05)
  • The delayed triggered ability created by Niko’s first loyalty ability will trigger whenever the target creature deals any damage that turn, not just combat damage. (2021-02-05)
  • Niko deals all the damage for their second ability at the same time. For example, if you’ve drawn two cards this turn, Niko will deal 4 damage to the target tapped creature; they won’t deal 2 damage, then deal 2 more damage. (2021-02-05)
