Lathril, Blade of the Elves – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Kaldheim has given Magic the Gathering players plenty of new Elves cards to play with, but none may be as truly impactful as Lathril, Blade of the Elves. As the lead card in one of the two Commander decks being released with Kaldheim, the four mana Legendary creature may be an obvious choice to lead […]

Surtland Flinger – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Kaldheim may be one of the most tribal focused sets in Magic the Gathering we have seen in quite some time. In particular, Giants gain a number of interesting cards, one of which is Surtland Flinger. Like its counterpart in Blue, Surtland Elementalist, the Flinger is available only in the Theme and Set boosters and […]

Surtland Elementalist – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Surtland Elementalist is one of the big boss Giants featured in Magic the Gathering’s Kaldheim set. It costs 7 mana (5 colorless and 2 Blue) to cast for a 8/8 beater. Sadly, the Elementalist has no trample or other evasion, but he does have an ability that may make him worth playing. This blue Giant […]

Halvar, God of Battle / Sword of the Realms – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

We’ve seen how powerful the modal Double-Faced land cards were in Magic the Gathering’s Zendikar Rising. Having a spell that you could also play as a land has changed the competitive landscape forever. Kaldheim offers a brand new take on the modal cards with a creature that can also be an enchantment. But, this first […]

Kaya the Inexorable – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

The last time the lovely Kaya planeswalked into a Standard-legal Magic the Gathering release, she left quite an impact. First released in the Conspiracy: Take the Crown set, all three of Kaya’s first planeswalker cards were playable to some degree, especially Kaya 3.0, Kaya, Orzhov Usurper. Kaldheim brings the 4th Kaya Planeswalker card in Kaya […]

Realmwalker – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

With several Elves included in Theme and Set booster exclusives revealed for Kaldheim, Green and Black Elves look like it will be a deck in Kaldheim Standard. What’s better for Tribal decks than Changelings? Somewhat predictably, Kaldheim will feature Shapeshifters, who have the Changeling ability to make them all creature types at once. Perhaps one […]

Cleaving Reaper – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

It’s been some time since Magic the Gathering printed an Angel creature in Black, and Kaldheim brings with it the Cleaving Reaper. Like another Angel being released in the set, Valkyrie Harbinger, the Reaper is only available in Theme and Collector (Set) boosters. An Angel Berserker who costs 5 mana (3 colorless, 2 black) to […]

Valkyrie Harbinger – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

The Kaldheim set for Magic the Gathering really brings Tribal to the forefront, especially when it comes to classic tribes such as Angels. Valkyrie Harbinger is one such Angel, who on paper doesn’t look fantastic, but fits perfectly into the Angel tribal synergies that Kaldheim is bringing with it.  Only available in Theme and Collector […]

Magda, Brazen Outlaw – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

Dwarves fans in Magic the Gathering may be able to live the dream of playing Dwarf Tribal in Standard with Magda, Brazen Outlaw from the Kaldheim set. This Legendary Creature is just two mana to play (1 colorless, 1 Red) and gives all other Dwarves +1/+1. Also, whenever a Dwarf you control becomes tapped you […]

Pyre of Heroes – A Magic the Gathering Card Review

For Magic the Gathering competitive veterans, Birthing Pod was one of the most powerful (and polarizing) cards ever printed. As a way to cheaply and quickly tutor bigger and better creatures from your deck, Birthing Pod decks dominated both the Standard and Modern scenes for quite some time. Eventually, the Pod was banned in Modern, […]
