Lingering Souls would be great with oketra and bontu, plus it's an alright card...

Lingering Souls is probably the best card in Modern! Unfortunately it dysynergizes so much with Porphyry Nodes. After playing + flashing just one Souls, all our Nodes become "inactive" for 4 turns. Do you reckon there's a way around that? I'll put it in the Maybeboard.
thebee03 huh that doesn't seem right. 25+13+7+8+3+4 = 60. Are you saying I should have a sideboard? I haven't even thought about that yet since the list is experimental, but suggestions are welcome!

See the description. It's a control deck leveraging the amazing synergy between Rhonas the Indomitable (and the other gods) and Porphyry Nodes (already an excellent card). Nodes destroys a creature every turn for just , and with an Amonkhet God, it stays alive forever.

Great idea in principle, but I wonder how you are ever going to have Oketra and Bontu active as creatures? You have 13 creatures in the deck and it will be a huge task to ever get 4 creatures on the board (for Oketra) other than to generate tokens, which will take you way into the lategame to do. I'm guessing tokens are also the best thing to sacrifice to Bontu, since you can't afford to be sacrificing any of your other creatures. That seems pretty slow as well. That being said, have you tested the deck and how has it performed so far?

Seeing as most control decks have 1-4 win conditions, while we have 8 (ignoring Bontu and Oketra), I don't think it's necessarily a problem. Even if they do nothing, they're still an upgrade from Darksteel Myr (which doesn't work with Porphyry Nodes).
That said, we did pine for a faster way to close out games against combo. Sapling of Colfenor could be help since having 4 indestructibles is required to consistently beat down with Oketra (and we're restricted to 3 due to legend rule). I'm not sure what else we can do... We did well against any creature decks, of course. More importantly, we'll never be better than a tier 3 deck as long as Path to Exile and Dismember are some of the most played removal in Modern.

why is Oketra the True in the list? with mostly legendary creatures its almost impossible to attack/block and when you can ... your probably already winning. (unless your 3+ consists of mostly oketra tokens, then your probably way behind) so more board wipes (like damnation) would be a better use of that slot.

Oh can't believe I missed those. Worship is definitely going in. Isn't Privileged Position strictly better than Asceticism here? Also are there any advantages to running Aspect of Mongoose over Lightning Greaves?
Oketra the True is just there because we desperately need more indestructible creatures, especially if we're adding even more of these creatures-matter cards. Maybe Oath of Nissas would help us find copies of the better gods?
