Shard is a predefined token and enchantment type introduced in Kaldheim. It only appears on tokens created by cards associated with Niko Aris.

A Shard is an enchantment with "{2}, Sacrifice this enchantment: Scry 1, then draw a card."

Shards are the only token to be predefined with only one card that interacts with it, but presumably will be used more as additional versions of Niko Aris are printed.
