Kaldheim is releasing soon and we’ve got some major news to share with you today, thanks to the recent teaser from Wizards. So enjoy the latest update and find out everything about Kaldheim spoilers, information and potential teasers.
Take a look at all Kaldheim spoilers available so far:
You can find Kaldheim basic snow lands here.
You can find the Kaldheim teaser trailer below:
What is Kaldheim?
Kaldheim is both a plane (self contained world in the MTG universe) and the name of the first Magic expansion in 2021. It’s a Nordic themed world. So you can expect Magic’s take on Norse mythology, vikings and other similar tropes.
We first heard about Kaldheim back in 2009. It was featured on a Plane card (from the Planechase set).
Here’s one interesting fact about name Kaldheim. In Norwegian language kald means cold and heim means home. So the set’s name is literally Cold Home. So is Snow mechanic making its return? It certainly seems possible.
All Kaldheim dates are now confirmed!
- Kaldheim Early Spoilers: December 15-17, 2020
- Kaldheim Spoilers Start: January 7, 2021
- Kaldheim Spoilers Finish: January 22, 2021

- Prerelease Date: January 29 – February 4, 2021

- Set symbol:
Draft boosters are your regular boosters, and sure enough Kaldheim will have those.
If you like cards with amazing alternate art, you’re in luck! Kaldheim Collector Boosters will surely have something for you.
You can find more about Kaldheim Collector Booster contents here.
You can see a hammer of some sorts, so we can expect Magic’s take on Thor’s hammer, perhaps. The art style looks quite special, and there might be a whole set of cards made with similar style – this usually happens with Collector Boosters.
Set boosters are coming back with Kaldheim. Given the popularity of this product with Zendikar Rising, that’s not a surprise.
Kaldheim Commander Decks
We’re getting two more pre-constructed Commander decks. Those will be similar to Commander Legends precon decks. So a bit lower in power level, but with lower price than regular Commander decks. (You can find all Commander precons here.)
You can find both Kaldheim Commander decklists here.
It looks like we’re getting dark elves.
Kaldheim will have four planeswalkers. Two we know from before, but there two that we’ll see for the first time:
- Tyvar Kell
- Niko Aris
Let’s see what they’re up to.
Kaya is the main planeswalker of the set. She is featured both on the Kaldheim Draft Booster Box and Kaldheim Bundle.
What will she do there? Who knows, but maybe someone wants to get rid of someone in Valhalla? Who’s better for the job, than the renowned Ghostbuster.
What do you think his new card will be like? On the good or on the bad end? We think Tibalt is certainly due to get a very powerful card.
Tyvar is a confident and charismatic wood elf. He’s a younger brother of King Harald, and he united the two groups of elves.
His card will support elf-tribal.
Niko Aris is a new planeswalker from Theros. Niko was destined to become a great athlete, an undefeated javelineer, who’d never miss a shot.
They trained for many years, but Niko question their destiny. Niko wanted to become a true hero, someone who would help others. When Niko lost a competition on purpose, a new path appeared – one, where they’d become a true hero.
You might wonder why we’re talking about miniatures, when you just want to see some Kaldheim spoilers. Well, here’s the thing. Some Magic the Gathering miniatures recently became available for preorder on the Southern Hobby website.
Release date for those figurines is March 15, 2021 – so after Kaldheim release. However, their pictures are already available and they suggest what we might get in the Kaldheim card set. There are some with descriptions of their creature types:
- Human Berserker
- Dwarf Cleric
- Elf Cleric
Clerics could definitely work, since this would mean more goodies for the Cleric deck, and for a potential Party deck in Standard.
Dwarfs are also pretty much a given on a Nordic plane, while Elves might come as surprise. Now again, none of this means that this creatures will actually be in the set. However, the following two miniatures would fit amazingly well on Kaldheim.
Reidane, Goddess of Justice
First up, it’s a Valkyrie Goddess. Her name sounds like a Magic card and we’re probably looking at a white-blue character. As we’ll talk about a bit later, God creatures would make a lot of sense on Kaldheim.
Second interesting one is Cosmo Wolf. It looks like the Magic’s take on Fenrir, a monstrous wolf in Norse mythology. There’s also a Cosmo Serpent figurine, which could represent Jörmungandr, a giant sea serpent.
Kaldheim Speculations & Predictions
Here you’ll find various predictions about Kaldheim, along with a confidence level, which will tell you how certain we are about it.
Norse mythology is very deep. The gods like Thor, Odin, Loki and Freya are all well known.
When Magic did their sets based on ancient Greece (Theros) and Egypt (Amonkhet), they leaned heavily into their mythology and made God creature type with cards like Heliod, God of the Sun and The Scarab God.
- Prediction: Kaldheim will feature God creatures.
- Confidence Level: 99%
So our first prediction is probably the safest one, given what Wizards had done in the past. In addition to previously mentioned Reidane, Goddess of Justice, there’s also another figurine, which further cements this prediction.
Alrund, God of Wisdom
Another name that would fit perfectly on a Magic card. If you look closely, you’ll see that one of his eyes is blue. This suggest that Kaldheim will have the MTG version of Odin. Pretty cool, huh?
Return of the Snow Mechanic
Kaldheim is cold. It’s probably always covered in snow. So might we see a return of the Snow mechanic?
If you don’t know what a Snow mechanic is, here’s a quick recap. Snow is a supertype (like Basic, Legendary, etc.) If such card produces mana, it produces Snow mana. It can be used to pay regular mana costs, or Snow costs (snowflake icon). You can learn more about this here.
Anyways, while the mechanic is somewhat popular, it’s also very self-contained. This might hurt its chances of returning in a regular Standard set, even though it would be a flavor win.
- Prediction: The Snow mechanic will return in Kaldheim.
- Confidence Level: 40%
Each regular set usually features 3 planeswalkers. We have some guesses about two of them, but the third one still remains a mystery. Which one would you like to see?
Another interesting fact about the miniatures we mentioned before. Besides the ones that would obvious fit the Kaldheim plane, there were also three planeswalkers: Nahiri, Jace and Kaya.
Now Nahiri and Jace just got a card with Zendikar Rising and they might have been made because of it. Kaya on the other hand, didn’t get a card since Ravnica Allegiance. So this could mean that she’ll appear on Kaldheim.
Since our original prediction, we got another bit of very relevant info. A Kaldheim Bundle was leaked, and it depicts Kaya! So, she’s pretty much confirmed for Kaldheim.
- Prediction: Kaya will get a new card in Kaldheim.
- Confidence Level: 100%
Ramaz is a shaman and a planeswalker. He manipulated Chandra into stealing the Dragon Scroll. This eventually let to Eldrazi being released on Zendikar.
Anyways, what’s important is that when Chandra wanted to get revenge, she found Ramaz on Kaldheim. They fought, but Ramaz escaped.
We don’t know if Ramaz actually comes from Kaldheim or if he just planeswalked there. However, it’s possible that he’ll get a card now that we’re coming there.
- Prediction: Ramaz will get his first Planeswalker card in Kaldheim.
- Confidence Level: 50%
- Result: Since all four planeswalkers have been confirmed, we know that we won’t get a Ramaz planeswalker card.
More Party Support
WotC had stated that they’re looking to do more cross set synergies, to improve Standard decks of the past. So they might to include some more Party support with Kaldheim.
While we probably won’t see many Rogues (if any), there will almost certainly be Warriors and Clerics. Wizards could also appear, but they could use Shamans instead.
- Prediction: There will be Wizards, Warriors and Clerics in the Kaldheim set.
- Confidence Level: 50% for Wizards, 90% for Clerics and Warriors
