While not officially part of the Kaldheim set, these are part of the Commander deck supplemental products and also not part of the MTG Arena release. However, we do get a glimpse of the mechanic “foretell” (which Wizards have chose not to reveal) and the two major tribes that will be reprsented in Kaldheim.

Every set, Magic: The Gathering’s Head Designer Mark Rosewater gives us a series of teasers for the upcoming set where players can speculate on what might be coming. It’s always fun to go back and piece together what was teased with the actual spoiler!

Before the Kaldheim full previews officially begin, I thought I’d have some fun with another Maro teaser where I give you tiny hints of things to come. As always, be aware that I’m only giving you partial information.

First up, here are some things you can expect to see in Kaldheim:

  • a five-color legendary enchantment
  • 2{B} for a 6/6 with deathtouch
  • a card that allows you to kill someone with poison
  • A card with a {W}{W}{U}{U}{B}{B}{R}{R}{G}{G},{T} activation
  • a card that lets you use a creature’s toughness to perform an action normally using a creature’s power
  • numerous new noncreature tokens
  • a card that can make a token that’s a copy of target permanent for no mana
  • a black creature that can copy other creatures
  • the introduction of a creature type that players have been wanting for years
  • a card with three activation costs, one that’s only ever used once before and the other two have never been used before

Here are some snippets of rules text you’ll see:

  • “protection from God creatures”
  • “Sacrifice five Treasures:”
  • “if three or more creatures died this turn”
  • “Choose 1, 2, or 3 at random.”
  • “except for Giants, Wizards, and lands”
  • “you may search your library and/or graveyard for a Rune card”
  • “As long as you control three or more legendary creatures”
  • “X is the number of Vehicles you control plus the number of Equipment you control”
  • “As long as you have at least 7 life more than your starting life total”
  • “create X of those tokens instead”

And finally, here are some creature type lines you’ll see:

  • Angel Warrior
  • Zombie Rogue
  • Dwarf Cleric
  • Horse Spirit
  • Vampire Dragon
  • Legendary Creature – Wolf
  • Legendary Creature – Bird Spirit
  • Legendary Creature – Giant Wizard
  • Legendary Creature – Demon Berserker
  • Legendary Creature – Squirrel

This article gives us an outline of how we can find various cards and their alternate art forms on tabletop Magic – but there is a section on MTG Arena too! Legendary creatures will be getting their special showcase card styles, as well as an unrevealed treatment style also. Realmwalker is the buy-a-box promo for the set. Click on the link above for the full article, or read the excerpt below for the part about MTG Arena:

MTG Arena has brought in many of these treatments into their digital game as well. Here is an overview of the treatments available within MTG Arena.

Borderless Arena Kaya

Borderless planeswalkers, borderless Pathways, and borderless versions of five of the new mechanic cards—each of these will have their own treatment bundle in the MTG Arena store.

Buy-a-Box card and style for Realmwalker—when you buy the 45-count pack bundle you will get a Realmwalker card and its card style. The 90-count pack bundle gets you the card style and two copies of Realmwalker.

Showcase Arena Magda, Brazen Outlaw

Showcase Viking styles will be available in a variety of ways. MTG Arena will be having a Kaldheim Festival that will be making some of the card styles available. Others will be made available via bundles in the MTG Arena store.

There is one more treatment that hasn’t been shown off. Once it has been, you will be able to get it via entry into an upcoming Arena Open event.

Plus, there’s one more thing we’re bringing to Kaldheim players on MTG Arena that you can come back on—wait for it—January 7 to see.
