As the moon shines down on your beauty; As the sun takes pride in your might- From our great industry; To our marvelous leader- We sing forever more the truth of our ways in Glorious Mordengrad! Glorious Mordengrad! Glorious Mordengrad! Always! -Mordengrad anthem, translated from Latvian
Mordengrad has been an industrial powerhouse for decades, but it is only in more recent years that it started shining so brightly. Under new leadership, it’s accomplishments in scientific and military fields led it to declare itself an independent country, though a very small one. Its leader, Ivan Grigori Ramonat, rules with an iron fist, instilling great nationalism from the Mordengradian people, through control of the country’s assets and impressively sweeping propaganda.
The Mordengrad capitol is home to scores of Blade battalions, walking technological terrors, and numerous Doomsday Devices. Any villain who stands against the heroes here will have much support, but only the true leader of Mordengrad can take the greatest advantage of it’s glorious might.

To Other Works
- Mordengrad is to Baron Blade what Latveria is to Doctor Doom in the Marvel Universe. At this location they are hailed as the leader and can do no wrong.
- If Blade Battalion Commander is in play, and Battalion Command Center reveals a non-Minion target with 5 or less max HP, it is put into play. It has the Minion keyword because of the Commander.
- If Black Hole Generator destroys a device target while dealing damage, the amount of damage dealt to the next target increases by 1, since X updates dynamically. Similarly, when it destroys a device environment card, the number of card destructions increases by 1, since X updates dynamically.
- When Conscripted Engineer discards the top card of each deck, that includes the Title Deck (causing that card to be shuffled into the Title Deck).
