Where Cards Echo Norse Legends

Imagine Magic: The Gathering’s artistic charm but with a twist inspired by the legendary Norse sagas. The cards themselves are canvases painted with captivating visuals. From detailed dragons flaunting their power to nature-based druids communing with ancient forces. From mesmerizing mermaids that beckon from the depths to the serpentine spawn of Jormungandr. In Nine Realms Revolt, each card unveils a fragment of Norse mythology’s grand tapestry.

Banners and Battlegrounds: Tri-Lane Triumph

Like a fearless Viking, you’ll wage your wars across three lanes, battling for dominance and glory. How to win? To obliterate your adversary’s banners with any means possible. Within each lane, two creature slots stand ready, along with a strategic trap slot, paving the way for dynamic and tactical gameplay. Most card effects unleash upon play or trigger on their death. When a banner is hit, a rally card may also take effect from your deck. The realm of possibilities for gameplay is nothing short of astonishing. Nine Realm Revolt promises an adventure where every move counts and surprises await at every turn.

Nine Realms Revolt Dicey Delights

Here’s where the fun truly ignites, like the black forge of the gods themselves. Within each lane, a solitary die stands as both sentinel and potential game-changer. Left unattended, it becomes an additional bastion of defense for the lane, fortifying your position. Yet, the die’s true power emerges when strategically placed upon a card, imbuing the creature with a surge of strength – a +1 boost to both attack and health. Placing the die on specific cards may also leave you grinning like Loki at his latest prank because they offer additional effects.

Nine Realms Revolt’s draft mode is an arena where your mastery over chance and strategy is stretched to its limits.
