So I made this Child of Alara God Tribal deck "Let me play my fucking gods"

Do you guys have any recommendations? Willing to pay max 15/20$ per card. Any additional info is in the description.

Thanks in advance.

Well considering that the most popular type of deck built around Child of Alara is a gods tribal, edhrec.com would be the best place to go for good card suggestions. I'd start there for you base. But, I'll give some suggestions without looking on edhrec.com... so first things first, devotion. You'll need lots of devotion in the deck to turn on the gods. You'll be running all the gods, that's the problem. You be almost doing absolutely nothing to affect the game until you get to the late game. So board wipes, board wipes, and more board wipes lol. This is the second best thing you can do. But if you depend on your CMDR to do the board wipes with sac outlets, then you will have mostly pernmenets in your deck. This is where 3 cards become really good in this deck.

  1. Genesis Wave

  2. Primal Surge

  3. Kamahl's Druidic Vow

These 3 cards really shine in a deck that doesn't have many instant and sorcery spells

A friend of mine built a god deck and was having trouble with devotion so he included some of the following and they really helped.

Deity of Scars, Demigod of Revenge, Deus of Calamity, Divinity of Pride, Dominus of Fealty, Ghastlord of Fugue, Godhead of Awe, Nobilis of War, Overbeing of Myth, Oversoul of Dusk, Progenitus.

He only runs 3 or 4 of them but most of them are interesting options to run. Fist of Suns is also really nice in his deck.
