New Argive is the largest and most notable of the Terisian Isles on Dominaria. It is also the name of the nation that formed from the merger of Kjeldor and Balduvia in the dying years of the Ice Age. It is bordered by the Videnthian Sea and the Shielded Sea.
New Argive is now the chief nation of modern-era Terisiare. It is one of the focal points for non-magical study on Dominaria. Hanna, navigator of the Weatherlight, studied at the Argivian University. New Argive was devastated during the second phase of the Phyrexian Invasion, but seems to have recovered. However, recently the island has been infiltrated by Cabal agents.
