Choose your God or play them all.

A variety of Mythic Rare Norse-themed Gods will return to Magic: The Gathering in the upcoming Kaldheim Standard-legal set as Modal Double-Faced cards.

A total of 12 Gods are featured within the Kaldheim (KHM) set, with five as Mythic Rare Modal Double-Faced cards (MFDC) and five as Rares. The Mythic Rare Gods are Valki, Halvar, Alrund, Toralf, and Esika. Each of these Gods has a backside that features legendary Artifacts, enchantments, a creature, and even a planeswalker. Gods within the KHM set aren’t indestructible, unlike Gods from previous Magic sets.

Valki, God of Lies

Valki, God of Lies is really Tidbalt, a half-devil planeswalker who’s represented on the backside as Tidbalt, Cosmic Impostor. He was last represented as a planeswalker in War of the Spark as Tibalt, Rakish Instigator. He also briefly appeared in Zendikar to confront Chandra Nalaar. Valki, God of Lies is the only Mythic Rare God within KHM to have a planeswalker on its backside.

Halvar, God of Battle happens to be quite sensible. He’s able to cut through the Cosmos with his sword, which is featured on the backside as the Sword of Realms. Halvar created the legendary Artifact sword and is likely the Kaldheim version of Baldr due to his honorable and selfless traits.
