Kaldheim Spoiler Reveals New God MDFC That Can Make Your Creatures Boast Twice

In just a few weeks, the new Norse mythology-inspired Magic: The Gathering set Kaldheim will be released on tabletop and digitally (Magic: The Gathering Arena and Magic Online), and we are approaching the final days of its spoiler season. Today, Wizards of the Coast has revealed a new rare legendary god MDFC (Modal Double-Faced Card) called Birgi, God of Storytelling // Harnfel, Horn of Bounty, and it's made to support cards with the Boast mechanic. The artifact side can provide a reliable card advantage engine.

Here is the Showcase version of Birgi, God of Storytelling // Harnfel, Horn of Bounty.

Being able to Boast twice per turn can definitely bring game-winning advantages. The extra red mana that Birgi can potentially provide can also be used to pay for Boast costs. Harnfel, Horn of Bounty will probably be used more in Commander format than Standard, but I can see it as being an effective sideboard card against slower strategies.

In addition to this new MDFC reveal, a new board wipe Sorcery with Foretell has also been revealed today, and I think it's one of the most powerful cards in Kaldheim.

Kaldheim is set to release on February 5, 2021 for tabletop, and Jan. 28 on Magic Arena and Magic Online. The set will be followed by Strixhaven: School of Mages, which is set to release sometime in Spring 2021.
