Throne of the God-Pharaoh

Unknown Artifact Budget Colorless



Artifact (1)

Planeswalker (1)

Creature (1)


Throne of the God-Pharaoh is the most underrated card in Amonkhet.

if you have seen the light.

Only one thing can make it better. Pairing it with The Actual God-Pharaoh



This deck CAN actually work, now.

Even if Throne of the God-Pharaoh never hits the field.


It's been built by the TappedOut community, basically.

Well done, all of you.

"Thanks for that, LCJ38," I say in my deep, manly voice.

LCJ38 not everyone on Tappedout is male.

LOL. Sorry. I mean, I am ready to commit to the Throne of the God-Pharaoh, SISTER Argeaux

All good, initiate.

Welcome to the cult.

Hey I won my Amonkhet draft with Throne of the God-Pharaoh and creatures with exert so I'm with ya, brother!

May 9, 2017 2:20 a.m.

Argy says... #10


Exert + Throne of the God-Pharaoh = Win Moar

Signious I think you'd better read #10 and #11 above.

It would mess with your mana-base of course, but maybe some Saheeli Rai or Mechanized Production? Because the the only possible thing better than Throne of the God-Pharaohs and Eager Constructs is MOAR UV DEM!!!!!*

EDIT: Derp. Just realized Throne of the God-Pharaoh is Legendary. Maybe I should rtfc before commenting ...

Nyah, why start now! :-D

RTFC takes too long.

I prefer to just wing it, and see what happens.

Now I feel like wings.

May 9, 2017 4:07 p.m.

Tokens + 1 vehicle to tap the all down + throne = yay

May 14, 2017 4:40 p.m.

Argy says... #16

VesuvanDoppelbanger I actually made a deck that tried that.

Unfortunately it wasn't consistent enough, but it was beautiful when it worked.

Nice Sideboard fam.

May 14, 2017 10:37 p.m.

Argy says... #18

salteeBoi it took me AGES to put this Sideboard together, but I think I've tweaked it enough now.

Or do you think I should swap a Forest for another Mountain?

Guardians says... #19

Let's get some Mirror Gallery in here. Judges won't care that it isn't standard legal, they too are controlled by the god pharoah.

Also, Sister Argeaux, I join the cult of the God-Pharoah

Cut a Wastes from the sideboard, and add one (1) Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker

May 15, 2017 2:08 p.m.

LCJ38 says... #20

Sister Argeaux, will you look at my deck: Rats! Lamest Combo Deck Ever.?

I promise that all of my rats worship the God-Pharaoh.

OminousRex says... #21

How about Chandra, Flamecaller? The 2 fire elementals leave at beginning of end step so they should trigger Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

May 16, 2017 12:27 a.m.

Argy says... #22

OminousRex if I go the Chandra, Flamecaller route I may as well put Hanweir Garrison + Hanweir Battlements in as well. Which I now have.

Guardians I like the Mirror Gallery suggestion, but my judges are pretty sharp.

I'll keep it in mind for if I decide to change this for Modern.

May 16, 2017 4:20 a.m.

Argy says... #23

Guardians it seems only right for me to also add Cascading Cataracts to the Sideboard as well.

May 16, 2017 5:43 a.m.

I'm surprised Nicol Bolas isn't in the side! Nothing like art showing the God-Pharoh cozied up with a nice book!

May 16, 2017 11:02 a.m.

Argy says... #25

Except that's not the REAL God-Pharaoh Jimmy_Chinchila

May 16, 2017 11:56 a.m.

Guardians says... #26

Argeaux I'm pretty sure the fact of the matter is that the God-Pharoah has gone to a few beauty salons in its time, and gone on a bit of a diet :)

Mardu_Maniac says... #27

Hey, love your deck! I played it a few times... But I was wondering, how do you do the nicknames for cards? Like in the joke about the "Actual God-Pharaoh"

May 16, 2017 12:07 p.m.

Argy says... #29

ACDAMAN Eager Construct is not something that I joke about.

You write the real name of the card then put | then the name you want to call it.

No spaces.

Argy says... #30

mynameismawky good call on Captain's Claws.

Last time I checked I had no facial hair.

I try to use gender neutral language on TappedOut, as not everyone here is male.

May 16, 2017 2:08 p.m.

Argy says... #32

I am not your wife.

As much as you'd like it to be gender neutral, the word is a masculine pronoun.

You might refer to your wife as "man" to be cute, that is between you and her, but it is offensive to refer to women that way in a lot of countries.

Think about how jarring it would be for someone to constantly refer to you as girl, if you can be bothered.

DragonEleven says... #33

I use the throne in a servos/improvise deck I've been working on... no-one expects that combo, but it can work really well.

May 17, 2017 10:07 a.m.

Argy says... #34

DragonEleven it's amazing in just about any Creature-based deck, particularly ones that also use Exert.

It works well in my Amonkhet Minotaurs

May 17, 2017 11:23 a.m.

With the artifact hate from Fragmentize By Force and just plain hate from Cast Out, the throne will be basically useless, and the opponent would still have the ability to get rid of Rai quickly along with the profane prince himself. The deck is good, but the Artifact hate is strong

May 17, 2017 12:08 p.m.

Bass_f13nd says... #36

I was thinking more of a ramp styled deck built around walking ballisra and big creatures using throne to give damage for my mana dorks and exert creatures

May 17, 2017 8:13 p.m.

Argy says... #37

Forestxavier20 BLASPHEMY!!

Out with the unbeliever!!

4x Dispel and 4x Negate added, to keep the infidels at bay.

Bass_f13nd no God-Pharaoh?


May 17, 2017 11:43 p.m.

Not Blasphemy, just truth. The hatred for artifacts is so real, that anyone running a Boros deck will be able to wreck if properly sideboarded. Violent Impact is another hate card, which can destroy the profane prince before he is summoned. The deck is good, but in this standard, the artifacts can go down so quickly, and there is a chance of losing everything to the exiles. Demolish has the same effect. Destroy and exile can't be countered forever.

May 18, 2017 7:54 a.m.

Argy says... #39

Forestxavier20 you don't check out your profile much, do ya?


PS. Hardly anyone ever runs those Land and Artifact destruction cards. They've been in Standard forever.

May 18, 2017 8:20 a.m.

Guardians says... #40

Argeaux, in response to your response on Bass_f13nd's comment, how dare you say that The God-Pharaoh is not a big creature! It has 2 whole points of power, and 2 whole points of toughness. When I was in kindergarten, even I could not add those two numbers together. And with Cryptolith Rite, even the God-Pharaoh could be a mana dork.

P.S. I hope this doesn't sound rude, sorry if it does, I don't mean it that way.

May 18, 2017 9:11 a.m.

Argy says... #41

Forgive me, initiate, I have sinned against the great God-Pharaoh who IS INDEED big, mighty, and strong.

Praise be!!

PS. Apologising is for the weak. Don't let it happen again!

Calispotato says... #42

Is there a match report coming for this?

May 18, 2017 1:26 p.m.

Bass_f13nd says... #43

I totally said ve damage from throne for my mana dorks and exert creatures. I cant agree with you more that throne is tge most underrated card in amonkhet.

May 18, 2017 1:58 p.m.

Argy says... #44

Calispotato there will be no match report for this deck, unless someone is dumb enough to play it in a tournament!

May 18, 2017 2:26 p.m.

I just wish my serious builds could ever get as much recognition as even your silly ones do...

May 18, 2017 6:13 p.m.

Argy says... #46

Jimmy_Chinchila timing your deck cycles is key, as is timing your features.

Also, if people recognise that you build interesting decks they are more likely to check them out.

May 18, 2017 6:18 p.m.

I never thought of timing, usually just do it when on a break lol

ROUROU says... #48

SICK DECK! i made some twitches for my FNM, because my playgroup is kinda aggro .

I sided in Arcades Sabboth, Chromium, Palladia-Mors and Vaevictis Asmadi , because i don't want to make bolas' brothers and sisters to feel secluded.

ROUROU noice!

Here be Dragons!!
