Kenrith, the Returned King occurrence in decks from the last year

Kenrith, the Returned King Discussion

Kenrith, the Returned King is extremely broken any mana loop wins the game. but this has nothing to do with the deck you are building.
I agree with CasualCucumber to run Golos, Tireless Pilgrim and fetch The World Tree, only thing i would add to that is to use Jegantha, the Wellspring as as a companion if its an option

My wife is trying to build a tribal god deck but she’s having multiple issues with the deck.

First thing is she can’t decide on a general. She’s hesitating between

Child of Alara: Whipping the board over and over and only having her gods on the board.

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, playing big mana creatures with multiple colours in their identity to add the devotion count.

Kenrith, the Returned King: I forgot why she thought that one was a good pick.

She having a lot of troubles finding win cons other that Opalescence and God-Eternal Rhonas with a bunch of her gods.

Also, would a devotion themed deck be better than a tribal god deck which needs devotions?

Azdranax Platinum Angel is why the token etb was able to resolve

Omniscience_is_life haha I Love It!. but i dont take credit for this play i was in the game but did not respond to any of the events that unfolded it was just to funny to watch

i do have 3 plays i love to tell
last year on my turn 0 i casted Pact of Negation on my buddies turn 1 Sol Ring

thanks giving 2019 in a 10 player game.
I turned 1 Mountain into Sol Ring
turn 2 Mountain & Repercussion
turn 3 Forest, Natural Affinity & then Blasphemous Act
everyone thought it was going to be a long game, one of the people kept saying i don't understand how did i die lmao!!

and i dont remeber if it was 2018 or 2019
i built my Kenrith, the Returned King infinite of infinite deck
in one game my combo went off on turn 4
it gets complicated but its was a 36 card combo that allowed me to move my libary straight to hand or battle field, move my hand to battlefield or grave yard, grave yard to hand or libary, and exile to grave yard
i then looped a spell causing all the players to put all there lands onto the battle field, then milled there decks put all there creatures from graveyard onto play under there control, shuffled there graveyards back into the libary, made them draw all but the last 5 cards of there decks, i then casted Happily Ever After & Teferi's Protection and passed the turn

This wouldn't exactly follow the Egyptian theme, but Kenrith, the Returned King could be your commander and you could try spirits or soldiers as the theme. This would give you better options for variety as opposed to most single/double color commanders.

Thank you for the suggestions. New Perspectives seems like a really good fit and its luckily one of the cards that are also in the Timeless Wisdom deck. I mainly intend to use Biomancer's Familiar for Kenrith, the Returned King as his abilities, especially the revive one can be quite costly.

The deck seems cool, I do not understand however the role of Heartstone and Biomancer's Familiar, as there is little creature with ativated abilities that will get discounts from this, in fact, the only 3 creatures getting use for this are Embodiment of Spring, Vizkopa Guildmage, and Kenrith, the Returned King, as cycling abilities will not be discounted, as the creature cards in your hand are not yet creatures.

I see you heavily go into the cycling abilities, cards like New Perspectives and Irencrag Pyromancer would greatly help you, one to turbo trhough your deck, the other to control the board a little.

Heliod's Intervention seems like it could be really good. If you put more creatures in here Inscription of Abundance would be helpful Kenrith, the Returned King would be a decent mana sink Laquatus's Champion would be really useful. Orzhov Guildmage Primal Command
