  • kevin

    you cat to be kitten meow

  • Erik López Barcelar

    I’m definitely building a white weenies modern deck.

    • Mov

      The 6 toughness is a clue about the format isn’t it?

      • Erik López Barcelar

        Im actually struggling to figure out if you’re being ironic :’D

        • God Enel

          I have no idea what’s going on in this conversation.

        • Mov

          The only possible reason for it to have a toughness of 6 is to beat dismember right? Indestructible makes it proof against every other common removal spell (apart from path of course), so the only reason they could have to make the toughness that high is to make it dodge dismember, which suggests to me that they were thinking modern when they made it.

          • Erik López Barcelar

            It does make sense. Sorry man, the internet is a wild place these days, everytime I spot a ? I think “ok another sassy comment”.

          • Mov

            All good. My original wording was bad

  • Brendan Noonan

    To the guy who predicted everything about this card good call haha.

  • Mov

    Hmmm a good God. Oh well there was bound to be one :)

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    Oh wow, that’s pretty great. Doublestrike is always welcome.

    • Erik López Barcelar

      I was expecting her to have vigilance, bc first strike was a bit pointless for a creature with indestructible imo. Hadnt thought about double strike tho. Makes her quite something.

  • xxxx

    She should make cats and not warriors. That’s sad, very sad ….

    • Hyorin

      How about Cat Warriors?

      • xxxx

        That would have been ok too ….

  • Nanya

    Oh Doran, I got a new toy for you!

  • G Cartet

    I keep seeing people talking about the indestructible keyword on these gods like it makes them any better. Please don’t forget, this set seems heavy on -1/-1 counters, indestructible does nothing to safeguard from this. Gods can die too and are seemingly just as fragile as those who serve under them.

    • Zeb Jaffe

      Indestructable is very relevant. Does it make them irremovable? No and there are a ton of Standard playable answers for these Gods. Anguished Unmaking, Cast Out, Trial of Ambition, any hand disruption, hell Horribly Awry hits all of them so far.. That really just means that they can be pushed more, since the format is flush with ways to deal with them.

    • Evil Tactics

      To be fair though, Oketra does have 6 toughness, even more than Kefnet which surprises me a bit, so -1/-1 counters won’t easily get rid of her. I am very glad that I can have at least one Amonkhet god that is decent. She’s not OP, but she’s not underwhelming either. I do agree though with the flavor miss of the token type, should have had cat added.

  • Tolle

    This is literally what I predicted she’d be. :/

    • MTG420

      Good call on the double strike then. I was saying Viligance.

  • Giby86 .

    This is actually good! There’s hope after all!

  • Ultramegalord

    I’ve been wanting to assemble and odric standard deck for a while……

    • Adam Gillies

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. Mono white or red white odric could work very well with her. It may not be super competitive but it would be beyond fun

      • Ultramegalord

        Timmys unite!

        • MTG420

          Timmy Standard Tournament upcoming.

  • Zombie

    By far the most playable of the spoiled gods. Not even close.

    • KrakenHunter

      Yea, I wish the red one was playable for my madness deck.

      4 Thoughness grasp sucks, and his ability is piss poor, shoulda cost 2 max.

      • zDRIBAS

        but is a great finisher for lantern control in modern…

        • I sincerely hope that you’re joking.

      • Zombie

        Shoulda been a 4/4 for 2R with a 1R ability.

        Only way to make it not useless.

    • Jalais

      Given your opinions on the other gods, this doesn’t seem like high praise.

      • Zombie

        She’s still no Heliod, obviously.

    • Happy The Cat

      just wait, green will have something like “have another creature with 3 or more power” and will probably be a 7/7 or bigger with perks to boot.

      • Zombie

        Would follow the theme of Green being far and away the best creature deck in limited.

        Wizards: “Sorry we made Green in BFZ block limited so disgustingly garbage, here you go”.

  • Kumrag

    Will easily see play compared to the others

  • Kevin Johnstone

    All are trash pretty much compared to THS block gods. Unfortunate. Hopefully we see dual color gods in the next expansion.

    • Hyorin

      Won’t happen, it’s already established that Amonkhet is inhabited by a total of five gods.

      • Kahai

        We don’t know the extent to what the Hour of D will do.

        Nicol Bolas loves mana, and he will take it in any way he can get, expecting color changes in the set isn’t out of theme.

        And just like Angels became Eldrazi, Mono-colored gods can become multicolored.

        If what we’ve been given so far about the build up the second sun meeting in the horns, there’s a huge change coming to Amonkhet.

    • ymmij X

      quick translation “trash” = “require you to play differently then i want to”. blue gives you a mana sync so you can keep yourself open for countering then get a draw off if you don’t need to counter, red turns your top deck land into a weapon, and white rewards you for going wide which you will be anyway with a beat stick objectively better than heliod. each plays exactly as it should given it’s color and while not all are pure agro like the theros mono cycle each does what it needs to given the deck it is intended for.

  • What!

    It crew heart so playable at the least.

    • G Cartet

      Why would you use a double strike just to crew Heart, seems a bit backwards….she wouldn’t give heart doublestrike.

      • NC

        Because she’s not always gonna be turned on?

        • Jalais

          Bow chicka wow wow

        • G Cartet

          Means your not doing something right…. no matter how you look at it ;)

        • ymmij X

          this is actually a valid point. the turn following a board wipe you still have heart and her even if you were completely out of cards and options. it’s a last ditch effort but it’s nice to have a backup if your backup plan fails.

  • Kahai

    Is this a Jojo’s reference?

    • JTMtG

      No

      • Kahai

        Literally says DIO.

        • Cthulhooo

          It’s god in italian i think.

          • Mason Lee

            KONO DIO DA!

        • mkb52

          dio is god in spanish lol

          • Kahai

            This doesn’t stop it from being a Jojo’s reference, DIO is a GOD.

          • Karl Comrodd

            Even if it was a reference, why would it be Jojo’s instead of just the heavy metal band’s ?

          • Kahai

            It’s a meme.

          • Shadow

            YOU THOUGHT IT WAS OKETRA BUT IT WAS I, DIO!
            (believe me i was thinking it too. now we need dio holding her face in place of the stone mask)

  • joeymunn7 .

    Worse god so far. Red one being the best but all 3 are bad compared to the Theros ones. Hoping they saved the best 2 for last. They really went for weak grounded gods this time which I get but on Bolas plane I would have expected something more powerful.

    • Kaiser

      Sure, a 3/6 with double strike seems pretty bad for turn 4, probably just swing for 10 in turn 5 with trample cause have 3 dudes in the field is almost quite possible who wants to hit for 10 in turn 5? totally bad. Man, this is very VERY aggresive compare to erebos or Heliod.

      • Mr Black Mana

        Now that my god is on the field and I have my creatures out nothing can stop me! Save for anything that kills creatures thus turning off my god

        • Hedronal

          Said god easily making more creatures in the color that’s the best at making lots of small creatures with few spells.

          • Mr Black Mana

            I don’t see many people outside of limited paying 4mana for a 1/1 unless you are out of cards and in that case you’re probably going to be screwed or are already winning without your god

          • Hedronal

            So like I said, use other spells. Sram’s Expertise and Servo Exhibition come to mind, those do all or most of the job in the same color and archetype, and won’t rotate anytime soon.

        • Kaiser

          this is white so probably you need to kill 3 little creatures, them kill that creatures gain cause in turn 4 is easy have atleast 5 creatures on board you know?

      • joeymunn7 .

        Yeah but 4 mana for only a 1/1 with a keyword is meh. Also for commander this is terrorible. I cannot really see a reason to use it. doesnt give your creatures anything

        • Kaiser

          pay 2 mana and 2 lifes for just draw 1 card is “meh” too but you still play erebos in EDHs right? XD. Oponents not gain life is still a bad permanent effect cause most of the times, do nothing for you and nothing agains your opponents but “he is still better than this” oh come on, just hard to kill.

  • Cthulhooo

    Ehh, not that great. Even for my mono white edh I’d rather pick Heliod than this,

    • ymmij X

      why? heliod has worse stats and a worse activated ability unless your playing constellation. also a board wipe washes any buffs (equipment, enchants) off heliod but not this god. the only advantage heliod brings is his vigilance buff but oketras tokens also come with that and i can find you plenty of vigilance granters in white. heliod may work better as a commander but neither of these should be leading the way they both belong in the 99 as unkillable titans.

      • Cthulhooo

        2/1 tokens and global vigilance sells him more than 1/1 tokens with vigilance. But I guess I didn’t consider double strike with attachments that don’t fall off so I guess they’re just different.

        • ymmij X

          Oh i didn’t realize they were 2/1 tokens. I thought it was 1/1 with stricter mana. But yea these are very different cards built for different roles. Heliod inspires while oketra leads.

  • mkb52

    vanilla and boring… -_- not even cat warrior tokens to… a swing and a miss…. come on cat people run… run like the wind…. cat people screw… screw like the wind… even old moldy noah… didn’t want to let them in… cat cat cat people… for for the win! alright!!!!

  • MrAptronym

    Pretty solid I think! I’ll be able to find a place for her for sure.

  • Julna Buras

    Oh hey, the white one isn’t nigh-on impossible to get to be able to attack or block. Quelle surprise.

    • ymmij X

      the blue one is pretty playable if you play like a classic blue player.

      • Karl Comrodd

        A classic blue player don’t need a 5/5 flying creature.

  • Happy The Cat

    red has to throw away cards, blue has to keep too many, but white has to just play creatures? it’s not even a large number!, not to mention this 3/6 has double strike in a set with a mechanic based around auras. Consuming Fervor, prepare//fight, heck Rhonas’s Monument and all of a sudden you just punched for half a player’s hearts.

    • Aurore

      And unlike Theros the auras don’t fall off if you lose Devotion!

  • ymmij X

    ya know people often forget that even if you cant get your god running this turn it can still crew a vehicle

    • Cynical Bastards

      no don’t tell them that we don’t want vehicle decks to be any stronger than they already are.

      • Typhuzuzu13

        The imagery of a giant cat woman sitting atop the heart of kiran as if she were a child with one of those mini cars, racing against a giant jackal rollerblading on a train.

        • Cynical Bastards

          well now that you put it like that…

    • Zombie

      So can other creatures that aren’t bad.

  • Vizzerdrix

    its nice to see another cycle of gods that are actually really similiar to the theros gods, these cant attack with a condition where the others were not creatures without devotion, but they feel really different from the theros ones. both this and heliod cost 4 make creatures but still feel different enough to be their own creatures

  • Cynical Bastards

    look, IN MY OPINION this is the best god at least for edh, slot this in an Rhys The Redeemed deck or something similar and its a 4 mana 3/6 double strike indestructible most of, if not all of the time. The other two require you either to be hellbent or drowning in cards that you can’t use because it will deactivate your god and most likely need to be built around. Not sure if its as good as heliod but we will just have to see.

  • Arcus Diabolus

    So far this is the best god. Pump it with anything and it will be a huge threat, especially with that huge body. (Hue)

    Perhaps the best part is its not limited by anything besides creature count unlike the other gods, and thats not a problem for white.

    • Mason Lee

      I know this isn’t related to magic but do you main Noel by chance?

      • Arcus Diabolus

        Yes

        • Mason Lee

          Oh cool, I’m a susano’o main myself lol

          • MrAptronym

            Makoto here. :P

          • Mason Lee

            That’s my best friends main too!

  • Shagoth

    There’s a three mana creature that has double strike that will usually have three power. Odd, but whatever.
    This God is pretty decent. Dodges everything but PtE in modern and is usually a creature as well. It’s token generation is kind of lame but it’s a bonus. I almost like the others more because the others are janky and scream “build around me” but this will satisfy the spikes, not make them happy, but satisfy them.

  • Happy The Cat

    lets see, with Rhonas’s monument, I can play this turn 4, then squad hawk, squad hawk, any 1 drop(or green 2 drop, since I’ve got the monument) unblocked that’s 18 damage in one turn?I mean I just using squads since they are consistant but this shouldn’t be hard to get near in standard.
    man white needs more playable stuff, how am I supposed to make a mono colored singleton100 for standard with so few cards?

  • Deadly Berry

    At least the creatures don’t need to be white. This is viable if you put lots of tokens.

  • Lord Gonti Of The Orzov Networ

    Solid card, and easier to use than the others.

  • KÖLLEWOOD (MOBIL)

    Why are the Warriors all White without creature type… i should ask the blogatog ;)
