Ephara, God of the Polis

Ephara, God of the Polis

Legendary Enchantment Creature — God


As long as your devotion to white and blue is less than seven, Ephara isn't a creature.

At the beginning of each upkeep, if you had another creature enter the battlefield under your control last turn, draw a card.

multimedia on Ranar - Spirit Tribal/ Exile/blink

1 month ago

Hey, with Ranar in your control Restoration Angel blinking Flickerwisp creates two Spirits for no mana at the beginning of the end step of each player's turn. This delayed combo happens for the rest of the game until Angel or Wisp are removed or change targets. Start the combo by having Ranar and Wisp in your control then cast Angel even on an opponent's turn and blink Wisp. Wisp is blinked, returns right away and then blinks Angel, who doesn't return from exile until the beginning of the next end step.

Angel + Wisp repeatedly blink each other; each blink is one instance of blink which creates a Spirit and it happens at each player's end step. Angel enters from exile, blinks Wisp, create a Spirit, then Wisp blinks Angel, create another Spirit. This can add up fast in multiplayer Commander when creating 8 Spirits for no mana for a cycle of one turn if there's four players in the game.

Creating Spirits on your opponent's turns is good with Ephara, God of the Polis since then you draw a card at each player's upkeep. Mentor of the Meek can be also repeatable draw, but Spirits created can't ETB with more than 2 power and you have to pay to draw each time a Spirit is created.

Good luck with your deck.

Sounds like we have similar play styles.

Some of my favorite commanders are:

Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire. My 99 is all permanents. Lots of haste enablers. Lots of mana dorks. Win through combat with jundy stompy stuff. Your commander is a threat, removal, and a value engine all in one.

Skullbriar, the Walking Grave +1 counter voltron

Negan, The Cold-Blooded control the board and simultaneously gain value for it. Wins through combat or a big X spell or Revel in Riches

Ephara, God of the Polis slam 50+ of the best creatures and token generators into one deck, win through beat down, always have a full hand.

Chandra585 on Will Other Players Judge Me …

I'd first like to echo what Caerwyn said about the exact nature of objectification, and to add my own thought. Nicol Bolas is, in canon, a male dragon. His species does not have breasts, as they are reptiles. Now, I'm not normally one to whine about canon, but changing a character's species and gender into a combination of the two that can have breasts is really damn objectifying.

Additionally, I'd like to say that everything you do creates an impression on other people. If I walked into my LGS and sat down at a table, I'd expect to throw down my Coffin Queen or Ephara, God of the Polis mat, for the person next to me to put down a game knights exclusive mat, etc. If you come in and lay down tits-out Nicol Bolas, I am going to make a snap judgement about who you are. And I don't think you'd like what I judged you to be.

Hey, chirz2792, those decks sound great! Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer always interested me, and Ephara, God of the Polis looks like a card-drawing machine! Thanks for sharing!

chirz2792 on What's Your Favorite Deck?

My favorite is either Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer or Ephara, God of the Polis. I like ephara because it's more consistent and benefits off of some cards that aren't good like Zoetic Cavern. I like Brudiclad because it's fun to have hundreds of copies of Goblin Rabblemaster or Utvara Hellkite.

Zameck Carom should be:

Choose two target nonland permanents. An opponent chooses one of them, return it to its owner's hand. Put the other on the bottom of its owner's library.

I thought I fixed it.

also, Ephara, God of the Polis...oops

Ephara, God of the Polis is good since once you start getting some Dino cats outs you’ll draw during an opponent’s turn then will only need to cycle 1 card to get another which will continue the cycle to the next opponent’s turn.

Mad Ratter and Improbable Alliance synergize very well with the commander since they will make tokens off of the same triggers

SteelSentry on Does torpor orb shut down …

No, Ephara, God of the Polis will still work under a Torpor Orb. The important part of this interaction is that Ephara's card draw ability is an upkeep trigger, not an ETB trigger, so even though it cares about creatures entering the battlefield, the Orb will not "see" her ability on the stack.
