EDH is a lot of things to a lot of people, and even a lot of things to one person (me). While I definitely enjoy fine tuning competitive decks that can take down a table with ease, sometimes I like to build lower powered decks that might lose a lot of the time, but can lead to some great stories.
Today I’ll be showing you one of those decks. After Birthing Pod was banned in Modern last week, I quickly liquidated out of the expensive cards and found myself with a huge stack of tickets to play around with. I decided to put a small portion of them into a fun deck I’ve been thinking about for months: the five colour God deck, or as I’ve come to call it “Progenitus Polytheism.”
We’ve got every Theros block god in here. Many of them have cool effects, and if we can get them active they serve as excellent beaters and defenders. We’ll need to get their devotion up, so we’re also playting all 10 of the hybrid deities from Shadowmoor and Eventide, as well as their respective Lieges. While Karona might be a little more on-flavor, Progenitus serves as both an effective wincon and a devotion enabler. The deck, in its first incarnation at least, also plays the 10 hybrid auras and the Gods’ weapons. We round it out with a bunch of wraths (flavorful!) and a few other utility spells.
There are two games below: one of the first games I played with the deck and a second after some tweaking. Can we get enough Gods online to beat a path to victory, or is our faith in them misplaced? You’ll have to watch and find out!
So how’d I do?
