White Gets Modal God In Halvar, God of Battle In Kaldheim

The first God from Kaldheim has been previewed by Amon Amarth!

Courtesy of Wizards of the Coast (WotC) and Amon Amarth, check out the first God previewed from Kaldheim — Halvar, God of Battle!

Creatures you control that are enchanted or equipped have double strike.

A first of his kind, Halvar can be played as either a creature or Equipment. As a creature, Halvar grants double strike to any creature you control that is enchanted or equipped, including himself.

At the beginning of each combat, you may attach target Aura or Equipment attached to a creature you control to target creature you control.

Needing to do some last minute rearranging before combat? Halvar allows you to change around your Aura or Equipment to help you optimize your attackers.

If you happen to be in the market for an Equipment, Halvar can also be played as Sword of the Realms for two mana.

Equipped creature gets +2/+0 and has vigilance.

Whenever equipped creature dies, return it to its owner’s hand.

Sword of the Realms is a nice curve filler for low-to-the-ground aggressive decks, and once equipped, ensures your creature can return to the fight after being killed in battle.

Kaldheim is currently scheduled to release on February 5.
