Rune is an aura enchantment type introduced in Kaldheim.

Description[]

Runes can enchant any permanent, though they only provide an effect if attached to a creature or equipment. When attached to a creature, they give it a specific ability. When attached to an equipment, they allow it to grant the same ability when equipped to a creature.[1]

The Rune subtype doesn't have any special rules meaning, but there are a couple of cards that care mechanically about Runes.[2]

Storyline[]

The Kaldheim runes are linked to blessings of the gods.

Rules[]

From the Comprehensive Rules (June 10, 2022—Commander Legends: Battle for Baldur's Gate)
