Alduin is included in purchase of the pre-made Alduin's Apocalypse deck, which costs 500 gold. The card also has a rare chance to be obtained from Heroes of Skyrim card packs, or can be soul-summoned using 1,200 soul gems.
Due to Alduin's power that destroys all creatures on the battlefield, it is best not to use him while you have the upper hand. However, if you are losing the battle then Alduin is excellent to turn it around. An upside to using Alduin is that every start of the players turn, a random Dragon is brought back from the players graveyard, to give the player added cards.
Also note that Alduin costs twenty magicka. Only play him in decks that have other dragons, since the amount of dead dragons in your graveyard reduces the cost of Alduin, and creatures that increase your total magicka.
- "Ziil gro dovah ulse" ("Ever-bound dragon spirit") – Upon being summoned
- "Daar lein los dii!" ("This world is mine!") – When attacking
- Alduin is the main antagonist of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. He is also the Nordic God of Destruction according to Varieties of Faith in the Empire and Varieties of Faith: The Nords.
- Using Desperate Conjuring on Alduin has wildly varying results, depending on the amount of magicka spent to cast him. A high-cost Alduin may summon an 18/18 Ancient Giant or even another copy of Alduin
- Alduin was originally depicted with four legs on this card, unlike in Skyrim, where he has two like all other dragons. In a recent change (In time for the game's release on mobile platforms), Alduin received revised art, which now properly shows two legs.
- The alternate card art shows Alduin atop a tower, this is a reference to the quest Unbound in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, where Alduin destroys the village of Helgen.
