Kaldheim is a top-down Norse mythology-inspired inspired plane; Magic's take on what a world inspired by Vikings might look like.[1][2]

History in the game

Kaldheim was first featured on the card Skybreen in the 2009 Planechase set.[3] In the Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014 game, Kaldheim was the location of the ultimate antogonist Ramaz. In 2021, it will be the setting of the eponymous Kaldheim set.

Description

It seems Kaldheim is metaphysically close to Ixalan.[4][5] Mountains of the plane are known for their scouring winds and the frigid temperatures that generate a frosty deterrent to magic.

Trivia

  • The name "Kaldheim" literally means "cold home" in several North Germanic languages, such as Old Norse, Icelandic, and Norwegian Nynorsk. "Home" means "land", "realm" or "world" in this context, like in Old Norse Jǫtunheimr "land of the giants" or "Giants' home". The word heimr was used along with the word garðr lit. "yard" (as in Miðgarðr lit. "Midyard") in the names of various realms in Norse mythology.
