Ephara, God of the Polis

Legendary Enchantment Creature — God


As long as your devotion to white and blue is less than seven, Ephara isn't a creature.

At the beginning of each upkeep, if you had another creature enter the battlefield under your control last turn, draw a card.

Ephara, God of the Polis Discussion

Hey, flashing out Ephara, God of the Polis Ephara, God of the Polis could be super nice card draw. With enough cheap creatures maybe token making you can draw a lot of cards. Another one to consider Lavinia of the Tenth . Then I find Search for Azcanta  Flip strong card and flashable. As for interruption of your opponent's plans Narset, Parter of Veils flash this when your opponent is about to draw a million cards, feels super good.

I could also see Teyo, the Shieldmage and The Wanderer beeing really strong in this kind of deck. Usually, planeswalker don't really feel good to flash, since you cant activate their abilities, but with these 2 you can really abuse their passives.

You might also like Emry, Lurker of the Loch

Thanks, for the deck, got some nice ideas from this.

vbfabled on Sygg, River Cutthroat EDH Suggestions

1 month ago

So I was looking to build a Dimir EDH deck and I found Sygg, River Cutthroat . His ability gives me vibes that remind me of Ephara, God of the Polis who is one of my favorite decks. Now in Ephara, I found ways to recur, blink creatures on my opponents turn, and use flash creatures to(usually) draw a card on everyone's turn and 2 on mine. My question is this: Does anyone know any cool cards or effects that can take advantage of Sygg's ability in a similar way other than save up mana and use Pestilence ?

Thanks for any suggestions

I'd recommend the addition of Fleetfoot Panther , Kor Skyfisher , Ephara, God of the Polis , Whitemane Lion , and/or Stonecloaker . Glimpse of Nature is banned. Glowrider is a cheaper Thorn of Amethyst for budget and drawing cards. Land-based ramp tends to be more defended against removal such as Vandalblast and Austere Command , so Kodama's Reach and Cultivate would be a worthy inclusion. Chulane himself is a massive target on board, so Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage are worthy backups. Rest in Peace could be replaced with Remorseful Cleric , but that's personal preference.

What about Ephara, God of the Polis ? seems to be a decent body and card draw.

Would you mind taking a look at my deck? I've decided to take a different approach and could use thoughts and opinions. If it's not too much trouble that is, Alela, Tinker Faerie Extraordinaire.

I think a card that alot of people are sleeping on in the Alela builds I've been checking out is Ephara, God of the Polis . Just bringing her out triggers Alela, with the amount of enchantments and artifacts Alela decks run, It is hard not to trigger Ephara, she's Indestructible, and often she will be a creature. Not quite sure what to replace it with in your build, maybe Cover of Darkness since your creatures will already have evasion in the form of Flying.

If you want to check out a take on Alela that seems to be different from the norm everyone is taking, I'd appreciate the look on my deck Alela, Tinker Faerie Extraordinaire. Still trying to work things out, and maybe you'd have some Ideas that could help shape it. :)

Bababad Thanks!! I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my list!! I have felt with my play through of this that I have felt like using Derevi, Empyrial Tactician but I feel that her popularity will get me hated out of the game out of principle! So that’s why I run jenara, though there have been some shitty cards that just seem VERY lackluster, Vanquisher's Banner Herald's Horn seem to be very good, but in practice aren't as good as you may think! I also think that I have a lot of ramp cards that I never really see,especially after having 10 whole dedicated ramp cards! And cards like Sephara, Sky's Blade seem kinda ‘win-more’ and the one time I had her out on the battlefield I had another angel that was an indestructible, and couldn’t black with sephara, so a lot of damage went through, so I think she’s a bust.

With learning how this original list works, I feel that I need to add some better and more value focused cards, such as Wood Elves , Sun Titan , Stonecloaker come to mind. And I’m actually going to add Mystic Confluence and the masterpiece Cryptic Command to the list here. I think cards like the elves and such will do me better than all the sorcery spells that I have currently. I also think I’m going to add in either Ephara, God of the Polis and/or Kruphix, God of Horizons / Karametra, God of Harvests as they might make a fit here. Most likely when my cards come in I’m going to swap the Vanquisher's Banner for Ephara, God of the Polis will do me much better than a +1/+1 effect.

Overall this deck needs a lot more fine-tuning and alterations before I’m turkey happy with it. As I feel I just added in too many lack-luster instants and sorcories and should put those slots for more impactful and long-term value/recursion engine(s). But once my new cards come in, I’ll defiantly update this list and see what you think!!

I super appreciate that :)

we are gonna update our primer soon, getting our other decks on here and updated with primers first.

Restoration Angel , Ephara, God of the Polis , and Brago, King Eternal spring to mind...the deck would shift soo much if I had access to white...especially care package-wise( Return to Dust , Ojutai's Command possibly, Eerie Interlude most assuredly)

I dont have too much experience with etb angels, just whap/midrange angels (bruse/tymna). you cant go wrong by slapping a ton of mana rocks in and sneaking in Brago, King Eternal as an honorary angel and just keep dropping fun angels:p
