Description

I made this deck because I really like the artwork on a lot of the new green and blue cards like Nissa, Steward of Elements, Bounty of the Luxa, As Foretold, and Pull from Tomorrow. The idea is to ramp super hard with Fertile Ground, and Utopia Sprawl to cast as many permanents as we can and fill our devotion for the Gods. Prime Speaker Zegana provides another big body and lots of card draw to stay relevant. Advice is very appreciated.

Note: I did not mean to upvote my own deck lol, but I mistook the upvote button for the feature queue button.

Bident of Thassa is a flavor win and would keep the hand full

also love Bow of Nylea for utility

Hey, sorry for the noob comment. Is this deck sort of hypothetical since Amonkhet hasn't been released yet? Do you have prerelease access to these cards somehow? Beautiful deck though!

Thanks for the suggestions dotytron, I think Bident of Thassa would be a good addition, especially since Thassa, God of the Sea seems to be the hardest god to activate in the testing I've done so far. Bow of Nylea seems pretty cool too, but I think it may not fit the theme of the deck too much, I'll test it out and see if maybe a spot in the sideboard could be freed up for it.

Yes, troublinparadise this deck is only hypothetical for now since to my knowledge there is no way to get the cards from Amonkhet until the pre-release at the very earliest.

This looks fun! Perhaps Call to the Kindred might be worth a try, maybe as a 1-of. it can help you cheat Gods into play much earlier.

I really like how awesome Zegana is in here. She basicallly helps to activate every single one of your gods. Nice fit!

There are many possible tutor and/or filters you could play in here:Commune with the Gods is cool considering you have 32 cards it can pick, so it will basically never not hit. Time of Need is pretty cool as well, giving you excess to all of your creatures except eight. If you consider splashing white, Thalia's Lancers can be very helpful.

If you ever feel like needing lifegain, Horizon Chimera could be pretty cool.

+1 from me for sure, and I added this to my tribal folder. Good job!

What about Metallic Mimic?

Overgrowth is great with the arbor elves; you can float 6 mana by tapping one creature

Really fun deck! I playtested my new LD deck against it to see how it would handle the quick ramping. Your deck can really take a pounding and still hold well. Nice job.

Thanks a lot for all the suggestions and support everyone!

seshiro_of_the_orochi your suggestions look really cool, but I'm afraid the tutors just don't fill my hand enough. This deck is capable of emptying the hand in just a few turns and what it really needs is cards to fill it back up. While Commune with the Gods and Time of Need help to find the right card, I think Blue Sun's Zenith and Pull from Tomorrow help more by filling up the hand for Kefnet the Mindful. Also Horizon Chimera is a cool card, but I don't think it does enough mainboard to warrant a spot. That being said, I think a spot or two could be freed up in the sideboard against match-ups when I need the life.

HarrisonHarry, if this deck was standard Metallic Mimic might find a spot in here, but unfortunately I just don't think it helps enough in this build because it does absolutely nothing for the Theros/Nyx gods and their devotion.

tumorman73, Overgrowth is definitely an option I have been considering. While it does work exceptionally well with arbor elves and kiora's follower, I think it's a little bit slow in this deck. Nevertheless, I will keep it in the maybeboard in case I feel I need more ramp later on.

Thanks a lot Bengernaut, and everyone else who has commented and left a +1, I really appreciate the support!

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx helps you get lots of mana and is half in-flavor :D love god tribal decks in all formats

Thanks Lutachris23, don't know how I forgot to add that, great suggestion!

Sorry, Hydrax, I forgot to address your comment earlier, my bad. I think Call to the Kindred is a really good card for tribal/changeling decks along with Descendants' Path. I'm not sure though how much use it will really be here since there are only really 10 gods. Calling the deck tribal is cool for flavor, but practically, I don't think there are enough gods to warrant it's use. Here the one of As Foretold makes a little more sense along with Nissa, Steward of Elements as they can cheat out more cards. Still, thanks for the suggestion and the support, I appreciate it a lot!

I love the idea man!

Being able to cast a lot of creatures while having access to lots of mana...this screams the name of one of my favourite cards: Zendikar Resurgent. I know it looks way too expensive, but dude, really: you have the ramp to do it, and it basically never leaves your hand empty. Just try it, i think you won't be disappointed.

I think it might be tricky to turn on Rhonas the Indomitable. Currently the only ways to do it are to turn on another god first or have a primespeaker.

Also Overbeing of Myth will turn on all of your gods in short order.

Thanks for the insight Firebones675. I see what you mean about Rhonas the Indomitable, but in the testing I've done so far, I think the most difficult gods to activate are actually Thassa, God of the Sea and Kefnet the Mindful. Currently, all the permanents that add to blue devotion are relatively costly and don't activate Thassa until mid-late game. Also with the amount of ramp it is easy to empty your hand quickly, deactivating kefnet. Although it is usually just as easily refilled, sometimes activating him does pose a problem. Also, I think it is important to note that Kefnet is always a creature unlike the devotion gods and therefore he does activate Rhonas. Also while Rhonas' +2/+0 ability for 3 seems a little expensive, it is usually quite effective for activating himself when there's a Kiora's Follower on the board. Regarding Overbeing of Myth, I think it could be a great fit, but I will have to do some testing to see how it compares to Prime Speaker Zegana, and Zendikar Resurgent. Right now I'm thinking it will take the spot of the latter, but depending on how well it performs it might take both spots. Again, thanks for the input!

This is great! Here is a dumber, 5-color version of this deck. Why not have fun with Gods??? Got Gods?

Really cool just don't think it needs as foretold because the deck ramps faster than the counters. +1
