It's become something of a tradition for Mark Rosewater, head designer of Magic, to tease us with clues to the next Standard set, and Kaldheim is no exception. Following the small early preview of cards in the 'Week of Metal', we now have a list of some things to expect, snippets of card text and exciting creature type lines - including a Legendary Squirrel!

What do you think the teasers could be pointing to? Do any of them stand out to you? Let us know in the comments!

Quote From Maro

Before the Kaldheim full previews officially begin, I thought I’d have some fun with another Maro teaser where I give you tiny hints of things to come. As always, be aware that I’m only giving you partial information.

First up, here are some things you can expect to see in Kaldheim:

  • a five-color legendary enchantment
  • 2{B} for a 6/6 with deathtouch
  • a card that allows you to kill someone with poison
  • A card with a {W}{W}{U}{U}{B}{B}{R}{R}{G}{G},{T} activation
  • a card that lets you use a creature’s toughness to perform an action normally using a creature’s power
  • numerous new noncreature tokens
  • a card that can make a token that’s a copy of target permanent for no mana
  • a black creature that can copy other creatures
  • the introduction of a creature type that players have been wanting for years
  • a card with three activation costs, one that’s only ever used once before and the other two have never been used before

Here are some snippets of rules text you’ll see:

  • “protection from God creatures”
  • “Sacrifice five Treasures:”
  • “if three or more creatures died this turn”
  • “Choose 1, 2, or 3 at random.”
  • “except for Giants, Wizards, and lands”
  • “you may search your library and/or graveyard for a Rune card”
  • “As long as you control three or more legendary creatures”
  • “X is the number of Vehicles you control plus the number of Equipment you control”
  • “As long as you have at least 7 life more than your starting life total”
  • “create X of those tokens instead”

And finally, here are some creature type lines you’ll see:

  • Angel Warrior
  • Zombie Rogue
  • Dwarf Cleric
  • Horse Spirit
  • Vampire Dragon
  • Legendary Creature – Wolf
  • Legendary Creature – Bird Spirit
  • Legendary Creature – Giant Wizard
  • Legendary Creature – Demon Berserker
  • Legendary Creature – Squirrel
