Godhead of Awe Discussion

With the addition of Intangible Virtue, your nontoken creatures lose a lot of value. For one, they don't benefit from the buff. Second, Aven Wind Guide becomes completely redundant with everything already having vigilance and everything but Raise the Alarm already having flying. Third, Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive can't benefit creatures being buffed by the Virtue. I don't think this is a bad thing though since Virtue is probably better than the aforementioned creatures. That said, I think replacing them to focus on more anthem effects that can take advantage of the natural evasion granted by flying could be beneficial. The first card that comes to mind is Crusade, but it was among the cards banned by wizards for cultural insensitivity so run it in casual at your own peril. Glorious Anthem is a fair bit worse. Also, if you want to focus entirely on flyers, Empyrean Eagle, Favorable Winds, and Rally of Wings are options. My final suggestion, if you're feeling spicy, would be to run something like Godhead of Awe or the cheaper but flying-removing Humility to level the playing field and make Protection of the Hekma more viable.

If Godhead entered most recently, then yes the saga would die, however if Opalescence entered most recently, it would have p/t equal to whatever its cmc is.
Because Opalescence applies it’s type changing effect in layer 4, the enchantments it makes into creatures are susceptible to the P/T setting effects in 7b.
Just my two cents!

Will Sagas get their first Lore counter with, say, Opalescence, Godhead of Awe, and Night of Souls' Betrayal in play? "As a saga enters, 'Special Action' occurs" seems a bit ambiguous compared to state-based actions. I lean towards yes, because 714.3a states "as it enters". But could someone wiser clarify?

Love the Deck, here are some fun and cheap suggestions that may help you out!
Wall of Denial / Vapor Snag / Celestial Flare / Elite Arcanist / Righteousness / Spell Snare / Godhead of Awe / Silence / Detention Sphere / Journey to Nowhere / Preordain / Jace, the Living Guildpact / Deputy of Detention / Invocation of Saint Traft / Unsettled Mariner / Oblivion Ring /
These are all great budget options that can replace a lot of your cards that already do the same, but for a higher cost. these kind of decks its vital to stall till you can drop bombs for a win. Good looking deck, hope it helps!

Maybe you have left them out intentionally, but you didn't get all of the Spirit Avatars. Here's the ones you're missing:
Admittedly not all of them are especially good (especially the Demigod is not exactly a gamebreaker in EDH), but I'm a big fan of the Spirit Avatars as a card cycle and an Avatar deck would be the perfect opportunity to run all of them in a single deck (at least I'd want to run them all if I were to make the deck). It's up to you.

Yes Keranos, God of Storms comes in against control matchups as well as most midrange type decks. The reason for this is that so-many decks are running Surgical Extraction (though the meta is shifting a little bit) so a plan B option in the sideboard felt like a necessary development (not being prepared for the multitude of Thoughtseize decks can be bad especially if you expect them to be out in force). Of the possible plan B's (most of which are listed in the primer above) Keranos, God of Storms is my personal favorite hence why he is included; this does not mean that he is the best option, that would probably be either Godhead of Awe or Dragonlord Dromoka right now looking at recent meta data, Crovax, Ascendant Hero may also have an outside chance if you are looking to play a plan B in the side. Honestly I'm thinking of making that slot a Boseiju, Who Shelters All as Dovin's Veto is a bit scary but I don't have enough data to gage how often I need to worry about that card. Otherwise the slot can be used for an extra Fatal Push / Path to Exile or as a flex spot.
As for Slaughter Pact I have always been a fan of it simply for its flexibility, it more reliably can answer certain problem cards such as Eidolon of Rhetoric than Fatal Push or it can buy a turn against decks like Amulet if things aren't going well. It also provides for some interesting scenarios with the math to win being free, most notably in the Humans matchup allowing us to beat a Thalia, Guardian of Thraben with 7 available mana, or remove something like Meddling Mage naming a combo piece for free and win at instant speed on time. Before putting in the plan B with Keranos, God of Storms I was actually on 2 Fatal Push and 1 Slaughter Pact and was happy with the results for a long time, when it came down to cutting one of those, I prioritized the Humans matchup where Slaughter Pact can be the difference, and at the same time allowing myself to have a removal spell for a quick Gurmag Angler or larger threat that push can't deal with as efficiently.
