God-Eternal Kefnet

Legendary Creature — Zombie God


You may reveal the first card you draw each turn as you draw it. Whenever you reveal an instant or sorcery card this way, copy that card and you may cast that copy. That copy costs less to cast.

When God-Eternal Kefnet is put into the graveyard or exile from the battlefield, you may put it into its owner's library third from the top.

BlueSkies on Ink-Treader Nephilim EDH

3 months ago

One thing to note about Ink-Treader's ability is that it requires you to play the card for its ability to trigger, so bouncing a copy of a spell off of Beamsplitter Mage and targeting Ink-Treader Nephilim will not activate its ability again. There are work-arounds, such as God-Eternal Kefnet , which allows you to cast a copy of an instant or sorcery, and both the original spell and the copy can target and activate Ink-Treader's ability. Isochron Scepter is a great way to reuse an instant, but really infinite mana with Dramatic Reversal is the way to go.

The cantrips are an excellent choice, rip through your deck and have every answer and wincon in a few turns.

Spirits on Mizzix, the Storm EDH

Hey MidgeRub,

Temporal Mastery is nice when can CMC2 it. I used to have a couple different win cons on turns, but opted to focus on the Reiterate lines.

My friend has a Kess, Dissident Mage turns with the God-Eternal Kefnet lines too.

Nexus of Fate is very good, it also gives a shuffle-titan effect, which makes it so that you are resistant to mill based win-cons from opponents.

I feel like my list still needs a few tweaks, it can run T2/T3 for sure, but I’ve had some games where it stalls a bit. Would be interested in seeing your list. I haven’t had a chance to look at potential strix upgrades either, but Hullbreacher would be good in here.

"Replaced Merciless Eviction with Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant Reason: The instant speed removal potential of Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant and the several sacrifice outlets in the deck, plus being free with Rooftop Storm , makes this a better include. While the deck can recover from having it's perminants exiled, it isn't something I'm overly keen on rebuilding through.

Replaced Animate Dead with Necromancy Reason: Necromancy lets me return and sacrifice Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant during my oppponents' turns, which is awesome. It also gives Nev more flexibility at creating tapped 2/2 zombies following any of their own board wipes.

Replaced Liliana's Standard Bearer with Rhystic Study Reason: Liliana's Standard Bearer is just too situational. I've kept it in my sideboard to help depower the deck depending on the playgroup. I really like it and it does work well with Haakon.

Replaced Gilded Lotus with Ancient Tomb Reason: Having the fast land is better than a 5CMC artifact.

Replaced Mystical Tutor with Leyline of Anticipation Reason: There are too few instant and sorceries for me to be able to justify this. I've found that having the ability to generate infinite mana with Gravecrawler and Phyrexian Altar is much better. Or instant speed wraths with Damnation .

Replaced Scheming Symmetry with Intuition Reason: I wanted to reduce the number of tutor effects in the deck, though I've had a spare Intuition for some time and really wanted to find a home for it. It seems to work really well, especially with Sevinne's Reclamation

Replaced Silence with Trickbind Reason: Silence was there to help me secure the win if I need to go through the Dream Halls but the majority of the time, if I've managed to get down Notion Thief first and wheel, then it does the same effect. Trickbind does also give me protection against planeswalker abilities and most graveyard exile effects.

Replaced Dramatic Reversal with Mind Over Matter Reason: I had looked to play online, with one discord channel advising that I would need to remove the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo, as it would be too strong. They also told me to remove Mana Crypt , though this is partly a deck designed to use some of my more expensive cards and make Varina as optimized as possible while still keeping the zombie theme. Adding in Mind Over Matter was a lucky find. In order for the infinite loop, I need to discard my deck to my graveyard. I enjoy the 4 blue mana cost, as it's harder to reach that devotion. Thankfully, with the treasure tokens from Smothering Tithe and Replenish to cheat it back into play.

Replaced Isochron Scepter with Emergency Powers Reason: Removing the Scepter makes sense as it's not required for the infinite loop anymore. But I've found that adding a 3rd Timetwister effect means a higher chance of drawing into one following a previous instance, like Echo of Eons + Time Spiral . These work really nicely with Narset's Reversal and God-Eternal Kefnet , as both bypass the exile clause on a lot of these cards - in addition to Teferi's Protection . Being instant speed also gives me a layer of protection against graveyard exile effects."

Daedalus19876 Thanks for the comment! I’m considering taking out Ajani's Pridemate , and God-Eternal Kefnet for some draw. Definitely gonna replace it with some card advantage/draw cards. I would love to put in a Mana Drain , but unfortunately your definition of “burn a little money” and “Cheap”is not the same as mine. :)

Hello, I'm back for another comment! My first cut here would likely be Ajani's Pridemate (he doesn't do much in EDH), followed by Serra Ascendant (he doesn't do much without evasion of some kind), then God-Eternal Kefnet (he's a cool card, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't feel like you have a high enough density of instants/sorceries for him to work right).

Also, if you have a little money to burn, Mana Drain is about as cheap as it'll ever get, and is a pretty strict upgrade over Arcane Denial :)

One last thing, Sensei's Divining Top works great with any deck, but paired with God-Eternal Kefnet , makes a slow “tutor”

Consider Wizard's Retort , you will most likely have a wizard on the field, and it’ll only cost a cheap 2 blue mana for a counter for any spell. Primal Amulet  Flip decreases mana costs, same goes for God-Eternal Kefnet . Expedite is a really good value card. Lithoform Engine is also great. Only downside would be the mana you would have to invest into it.

Debatra on If a Copy of "X" …

4 months ago

Fairly sure I understand this already, but it never hurts to double-check.

Let's say I have God-Eternal Kefnet and Mizzix of the Izmagnus on the board. If I use Kefnet's ability to reveal and copy an Instant spell, the copy goes to my hand and I decide whether to cast it or let it fizzle out. If I cast it, it follows all the same rules for casting the original spell (706.12).

Since card type is a copyable value, and this copy was specifically cast instead of being created on the stack like most copies of instants, will Mizzix's ability trigger if the spell has a higher CMC than I have experience counters?
