During spoiler season for War of the Spark, the card that caught my eye above all others was [[Enter the God-Eternals]]. Not only was the card insane - dealing damge, gaining life, milling, and getting a body on the ground, all in ONE spell - but the artwork was so gorgeous to me as well. At that moment I knew I HAD to make a deck around this card; it truly is

The Card of Gods

What We're All About

The deck, as you might have guessed, is based around casting [[Enter the God-Eternals]] as early and as many times as possible. [[Augur of Bolas]] and [[Opt]] are great early game plays to help us find the cards we want/need, and [[Fountain of Renewal]] gives us a decent life boost early on. Once we have enough mana, casting EtGE is our priority. A late game [[Twilight Prophet]] can take our opponents down to 0 if we've attacked enough times. EtGE has the potential to mill out our opponent too!

Copy, Copy, Copy

What's better than one EtGE? Multiple EtGE's! Flipping a [[Primal Amulet]] is done quickly since the majority of our deck is instant and sorcery spells. Wellspring straight up copies whatever spell it's mana is put into! Grabbing a used EtGE with [[The Mirari Conjecture]] is fun for that turn, but saving the card for it's third lore counter copies any and all instants and sorceries we cast! Add that to a Wellspring, and that's THREE EtGe's cast for the price of one! [[Narset's Reversal]] is a toned down version of the two, resulting in only one EtGE being cast. However, it can be used to copy our opponent's spells against them, which is good too. Casting a [[Clear the Mind]] shuffles cards we want back into our library, allowing us to cast our EtGE's again! At the end of all of this, we should have one big zombie boy.

Always Bring Protection

When we're not casting EtGE, we're protecting ourselves. [[No Escape]] denies creatures and planeswalkers we don't want out, while scrying us one; everything else is countered with [[Devious Cover-Up]], which can also put used cards back into our deck - including our used EtGE's. If neither of those work or we don't draw them, [[Ravenous Chupacabra]] kills creatures while [[Vraska's Contempt]] exiles both creatures and planeswalkers. Of course, who could forget about [[Cry of the Carnarium]]? Such a fantastic card, exiling all creatures it successfully brings to 0 or fewer power.

 

This deck is my absolute favorite to play with in standard right now. Sadly, several of the cards included will rotate out, but the core will still be there, and I definitely will update the deck once rotation hits!
