Phenax, God of Deception Discussion
1 day ago
So I'm trying to figure out my next deck. I am deciding between Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Dragonlord Ojutai (kung fu dragons!), Phenax, God of Deception, rebuilding my Zada, Hedron Grinder deck, or Marchesa, the Black Rose. Thoughts?

Finally, Phenax, God of Deception would be great (i would use it in the mainboard to be honest but it should at least be in the side board).
I really never bother with a side board, I know I should but I'm usually too caught up with the mainboard to bother with a side at all. I hope this helps!

Phenax, God of Deception is a strong option due to having access to both blue counterspells and black tutors. He can also potentially infinitely mill your opponents with Eater of the Dead or the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo.
However, not counting his combos, his ability is not as relevant as those of other gods unless you are using a self-mill + reanimation strategy, so there is that counting against him.

IMO Iroas, God of Victory, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Keranos, God of Storms, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Thassa, God of the Sea and Erebos, God of the Dead are the least interesting. They provide generic good stuff but don't really push anything cool.
Athreos, God of Passage has some interesting uses as a political commander, and WB lacks other political commanders.
Ephara, God of the Polis has some interesting flash tricks you can do that keeps her involved and involving.
Heliod, God of the Sun's token making is interesting for stuff that triggers on enchantments, creating more options.
Kruphix, God of Horizons IMO is one of the less intresting options, but even he changes your deck in a significant and cool way.
Phenax, God of Deception lets you do a UB control deck win con that isn't combo or damage, just slowly deck everyone.
Pharika, God of Affliction has the political angle with the snakes being GY hate and attack deflection. Also enchantress synergy.
Xenagos, God of Revels is another one that is barely interesting enough but it makes main phase 1 priority interesting.
Purphoros, God of the Forge isn't that intresting, but he is one of those rare commanders who gives mono red the punch it sorely needs for very little build around.

I guess a third option would be mill with one of the only viable mill generals, Phenax, God of Deception. However, this strategy gets hosed pretty hard if anyone in your playgroup plays one of the original zendikar Eldrazi titans.
