The first set of 2022, Emissaries of Light, will finally release worldwide on April 15th. This set will introduce some new cards of old fan favourite characters, such as Cloud and Aerith, as well as welcome some brand new ones spanning Final Fantasy’s extensive list of video game titles. Although this set includes many fantastic cards with arguably some of the best artwork we have seen in a single booster for a while, in this article, we share with you our top cards of the set.
Tidus (Full Art) 16-116L
Fans of Final Fantasy X, who remember the opening scene where Tidus is playing Blitzball, will be happy to see this card art coming to the Emissaries of Light set. We’ve seen several Tidus cards throughout the game, but Kumiko Koike has done an exceptional job at creating this beautiful artwork. This card has a fantastic draw mechanic as well as a way to send one of your opponent’s Forwards to the bottom of their deck when this card is targeted by a Summons or Ability.
Aerith (Full Art) 16-067L
The Buy a Box promo for Emissaries of Light will be this Premium Foil Full Art Aerith. This latest Aerith card is based on the Final Fantasy VII remake video game while still playing homage to the original key art from Final Fantasy VII.
Kirin (Full Art) 16-070L
Toshitaka Matsuda has done a phenomenal job of designing Kirin, with the full art doing the piece even more justice. The detail the legendary Final Fantasy artist has gone into is impressive, right down to individual hairs of its face and the patterns covering its body.
The illustration used for Byblos comes from Yoshitaka Amano, who is an incredibly accomplished artist whose career spans seven decades, beginning with his work on the anime adaptation of Speed Racer in the late 60s. Byblos is yet another fantastic example of this illustrator’s talents.
Luneth (Full Art) 16-019R
The portrait style artwork of Luneth, completed by Toshitaka Matsuda, is incredibly lifelike and is very reminiscent of oil paintings depicting royal figures throughout history. The sunlight bathing his cheek and highlighting the colour of his eye is a really nice feature of this piece and adds a lot of depth within the illustration.
On April 8th, a week before the release of the Emissaries of Light Booster Box on April 15th, fans will get the chance to acquire the pre-release kit for this set.
