    Gullveig makes an Aesir easy to summon on your 1st turn, but still 3-for-1. So, Alviss makes an Aesir cheap as 1-for-1 (actually, 2-for-2), and keeps Gullveig on the field to protect it from targeting.

    But Alviss effect doesn't make it count as a Synchro Summon, so, the Aesir won't be able to use the End Phase effect to come back with benefits. That's really unfortunate!

    Alviss tries to compensates that by summoning a different Aesir if the 1st is sent to the GY. In certain situations this may be good, if the opponent can't get rid of the second Aesir, in particular if they can't workaround Gullveig.

    However, Alviss's second effect still works without using the first. This means that if you actually Synchro Summon an Aesir, while keeping Gullveig on the field and Alviss in the GY, your opponent won't really want to send your Aesir to the GY, because you will Summon a 2nd Aesir and the 1st one comes back in the End Phase with benefits.

    How many new cards are expected? Will we get a new Nordic Beast?

    The only Nordic Beast I can see coming out is Gullinbursti. The boar Eitri created with a glow-in-the-dark mane by throwing a pigskin into the forge while working on Thor's hammer and the ring Draupnir. You heard it right, a Dwarf threw a football into a forge and it came out a radioactive boar.


    Or Sleipnir, Odin's 8-legged horse.


    We need more Nordic Champions.

    What we should get is 3 new Aesir synchros: Frigga - Mother of the Aesir, Sif - Lady of the Aesir, Hela - Daughter of the Aesir.
    Frigga would handle Nordic Champion (Warriors)
    Sif would handle Nordic Protector (Beast-Warriors)
    Hela would handle Nordic Expirit (Zombies or Fiends)




    Oh, and on this new sneak preview card:
    Alviss is a dwarf that wanted to marry Thor's daughter but Thor tricked Alviss into a challenge that lasted until sunrise when Alviss turned to stone.

    Also, Gullveig looks pretty content considering she was speared and then burned three times over by her Aesir overlords. That must be where the 3 banished cards part of her effect comes from.

    I want to say that this support foreshadows Nordic and Aesir things in the coming OCG Main Sets and Duelist Packs, kinda like the Cyber Dragon and Neos booms did.

    Like that Norse trivia, too!
