Thassa's Rebuff Discussion

BahamutPRME on Casual Greek Deck

So I'm trying to make a deck for my friend for his birthday and he likes Greek Mythology, specifically Poseidon, Hades, and Zues in this order. I'm wanting to stay in the Theros block and have 3 deck ideas but I need some advice and criticism because I don't want to make him a weak deck.

Here are what I've made:

The first one is using Heliod because I made this first and forgot there is a god that looks like zues but in MTG Heliod is the "Leader" or Highest ranking or whatever.

The second one is using Keranos and white humans so its 4 colors instead of 3.

The third one is sticking to the block and theme but also sticking to heroic and scry.

I have always been bad about including a safe amount of land in my decks so that is something i really need help with. I also wasn't sure if this was the best way to show the decks or if i should've just copy and pasted each text.

Thank you!

Greek Deck 1

Greek Deck 2

Greek Deck 3

Sorry for the long post. Wasn't sure how to do this.

You are welcome. There is a guy at my lgs that runs two obstructionists with two cliques in his jeskai deck. being able to cycle and stop a fetch land and control your opponents hand is pretty good.

Also, since you run the tempest djinn, have you considered Thassa's Rebuff?

After you have picked up the lords and sea's claims, (or the spreading seas, I actually think claim is better, less mana used, and you'll be scrying with thassa anyway) you're definitely on the right path with that devotion build, so make use of it!

Thassa, God of the Sea

Sideboard changes -4 Deprive , +2 Thassa's Rebuff +2 Mana Leak (then take out essence scatter and put 2 additional mana leaks or rebuffs into mainboard, I think).

(A non budget addition later on could be some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx )


Spell pierce is pretty good for countering things like planeswalkers and enchantments from aggro/bogle decks early on while your manabase is limited, hard to pass it up. You already have slightly more heft pay counterspells with rebuff and leak, so your spell pierce is purely for the early game control.

I would say keep it as is, but here's some of the other options for you, and also an alternative to cursecatcher (if you do run catchers, then take out the tidebinder mages or harbinger of the tides for them).

You may want to think about adding a few counterspells like, Mana Leak, Cancel, and Thassa's Rebuff. Kiora's Dismissal is one way to protect them, but it just takes one Merciless Eviction naming enchantments to up end most of the deck!

Thanks noodr for the advice, I do play 2 copies of Thassa's Rebuff, but a few extra counterspells woulden't hurts. also it helps with keeping Laboratory Maniac alive
