Svyelun of Sea and Sky

Legendary Creature — Merfolk God

This has indestructible as long as you control at least two other Merfolk.

Whenever this attacks, draw a card.

Other Merfolk you control have ward . (Whenever another Merfolk you control becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter it unless that player pays .)

Lords of Torment

Legendary Creature - Demon Noble

Flying, vigilance, lifelink

Whenever Lords of Torment deals combat damage to an opponent, they reveal the top card of their library. You may cast that card and you may spend any color mana to cast it until end of turn.

Whenever you cast a spell you do not own, you get an experience counter.

Spells you don't control cost an additional to cast for each experience counter you have.

4/5


Haiki, Golden Paradise

Legendary Creature - Phoenix

Flying, hexproof, haste

Spells you control that you cast from your graveyard have flash.

You may cast up to one spell each turn from your graveyard. If the card would be placed in your graveyard in this way, exile it instead.

Exile three cards of different types from your graveyard: Return Haiki, Golden Paradise from your graveyard to the battlefield tapped.

4/4


What is your favorite non-Human racial subtype? Merfolk? Kithkin? Giant? Skeleton? Insect? Lhurgoyf? Eldrazi?

Make a God for them. Be sure to include their subtype, such as with Svyelun of Sea and Sky.

Maybe replacing Stonybrook Banneret because it only reduces the cost of the other Stonybrook Bannerets and the Merrow Reejereys. Something like Master of Waves or Svyelun of Sea and Sky could match.

ThatTroutThing blue already exists. The original challenge was to make a cycle out of Svyelun of Sea and Sky.

Lathril's Chosen

Creature - Elf Warrior

Whenever another Elf enters the battlefield under your control, each opponent loses 1 life.

2/3

Callback to the card Nissa's Chosen but for Lathril, Blade of the Elves from Kaldheim.


Create a a God typed creature that would fit in a theoretical cycle next to MH2's Svyelun of Sea and Sky.

Apologies for the triple post, but were you basing this off Svyelun of Sea and Sky?

As Yisan mentioned, there's also Svyelun of Sea and Sky from Modern Horizons 2, June 18th.

Merely four months after Kaldheim and what, two months prior to The Forgotten Realms?

sigh...

The only MTG God I have a problem with is Ilharg, the Raze-Boar. Clearly shoehorned in to complete a cycle, Ilharg had no prior mention in Ravnica's lore and, as far as I am aware, was not even mentioned in the novelizations of the War of the Spark. In fact, the only source cited as authority on the RS Wiki page for Ilharg is the Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica--there is more information in the D&D canon about Ilharg than there is in MTG's lore.

Everything else makes sense to me. Greek mythology is so intertwined with the gods that it would be silly to create a set based on Ancient Greece without having Gods. That would be like making a movie based on the Iliad and leaving out divinity. Looks pointedly at the garbage fire of a movie that is Troy.

The same goes with Egypt and, to a slightly lesser extent, the Norse. It makes sense that cultures substantially remembered for their gods would have gods on any plane inspired by them.

Gods are such an integral part of D&D's lore that it would be silly to make a set without a few gods.

The Zombie Gods of WAR were the entire purpose of Bolas' plan on Amonkhet--these exist because the story demanded it; Bolas was trying to create the perfect zombie for his machinations, and Zombie gods fit that bill.

You also missed Svyelun of Sea and Sky, the only card depicting a Dominaria God. However, unlike Ilharg, Svyelun was mentioned in the game as a god well before her depiction on the card (Svyelunite Priest, High Tide).

All told, I do not see the proliferation of gods as that big of a problem. We have only had one who probably did not need to exist, and that is because (a) War of the Spark was a complete mess that botched the landing of a story years in development, and (b) Wizards put a cycle above lore.
