New Argive is the chief nation of the Terisian Isles. It is one of the focal points for non-magical study on Dominaria. It is bordered by the Videnthian Sea, with the Sea of Laments to the west and the Shielded Sea[1] to the south.

The nation formed from the merger of Kjeldor and Balduvia in the dying years of the Ice Age.[2]

Hanna, navigator of the Weatherlight, studied at the Argivian University.[3] 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.[4]
