• Kirito and Asuna SAO

    Pretty good

  • Ryan Sullivan

    So wait. Gideon’s faith is Renewed in a god that exists on a plane Bolas created. I’m skeptical about it and I love it.

    • JD Farrell

      Did Bolas actually create Amonkhet or does he just rule it?

      And I guess the flavour text is saying it’s not his own faith, per se, more just faith in gods in general.

      • dTHEb

        In the latest chapter the appearances of the gods startle Gideon because he associates them with the gods of Theros, who do not care about the life and or fate of mortals. So seeing these gods now walk among men and aiding them restores his faith in this deities.

    • Deadly Berry

      Wait until Nicole orders them to destroy the Gatewatch.

  • Kevan Kramer

    Love this art so much more than the original. This is now a modern card as well. Also got bumped up to an uncommon.

    • Zombie

      You say that like more than zero decks in Modern would play it.

      The only reason Renewed Faith was ever played in Constructed was because it was a cheap Cycle effect for Astral Slide decks in Type 2.

      • Kevan Kramer

        depends if they make good cards that care about cycling

        • Zombie

          Something on par with Astral Slide is literally the only way.

          And Modern already has good/useful Cycle cards.

  • JD Farrell

    Weird, a simple life gain card, and a reprint, that’s a story spotlight just based on the flavour of the name I guess. Weirder still, with a cycling focused bomb it might actually see play in limited.

  • Arcus Diabolus

    I love the flavor of this.

  • Oriattack P.

    If they did uncommon story cards I think there should be more story cards. Just like 1 or 2. I like the card though. interesting reprint.

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    Finally! Another ridiculous ship I can get behind! Gideon x Oketra 4 life!

    • Happy The Cat

      *6 life ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°),

      • Jacob Kodicovic

        My God…

  • shteve

    I so glad that this got a reprint it’s one of my favorite cards 2 to gain 2 life and draw a card its about time white got a good cheap draw.

  • Shagoth

    I like that the gods seem more humble and a part of life here, and not deities that will rarely be seen. Granted, they’re gods, so they’re not that humble.

  • Brian Schmidt

    Apparently the Amonkhet gods are a more friendly of bunch than the Theros gods?

    • Hedronal

      They’re smaller, and therefor more able to become involved. Also the Theros gods are possibly being edited by their people at the moment.

    • alexander macrae

      Karametra was supposed to be a nice god, which can be inferred only from the flavor texts of certain cards like Setessan Battle Priest. There was going to be a bit of story where Karametra helps Elspeth, but it got cut. Time will tell. I’m totally predicting that the Amonkhet gods are all seemingly benevolent, but they serve some darker purpose for Bolas.

  • Avery Standley

    At first I thought those things next to Oketra were trees. They’re people.

    • Zombie

      The Amonkhet Gods aren’t real “Gods” like the ones on Theros. That’s why they aren’t as large.

      They’re manufactured deity figures created by Nicol Bolas.

  • Zombie

    Not exactly a desirable reprint.

    It might do something in limited if you REALLY need a 23rd playable, but it’s just as utterly terrible and useless as it was when Renewed Faith was first printed in Onslaught.

    • Happy The Cat

      well, if they are bringing back cycling chances are it will have some support cards, I mean this is already a 1w gain two uncounterable cantrip which beats the bulk common creatures we’ve seen so far. we get more stuff like the cycle demon and this might jump up to a pretty high slot, probably never first 5 but definitely an easy choice if you want to cycle.

      • Dave

        Disallow and Summary Dismissal counter this.

        Not great ofc, but just sayin.

        • Happy The Cat

          I’m fine with people throwing away counter spells on stuff they dont need to. if you pick off my gain two draw one either you are a hard control deck that is WAY ahead and I’m just going through the motions until you draw your win con. I’ve already cycled the card so my Archfiend already shriveled your board so all you did was denied me a card and two hp

    • Reyos Blackwood

      Like @THExWIND:disqus said, this is actually really decent if cycling becomes a thing with the rest of the set. Cycling, that gives extra value like this isn’t all that common for so little mana, 2 is fairly normal for the cycle cost with just the cycle draw. We’ve already seen one big cycling bomb, I expect there to be others.

  • kevin

    pretty good card for triggering lone rider.

  • Happy The Cat

    What I want to know is if these gods can change size or something, cause if you look at the Invocation Worship, those people are definitely foot size. but on this, those people are in the knee/mid calf height range.

  • Ruben Bohnet

    I swear if they also bring back “Astral Slide” I will drop such an ungodly amount of money on this set. I shall never play anything but astral slide value blink in modern and it shall be glorious.

    • Cynical Bastards

      tbh I really hope they do it really would shake up not just modern but standard in a major way, but I know they won’t.

  • Dave

    Felidar Sovereign kinda likes this.
