Gods in BNG seeded packs

  • #1
    So will there be possible Gods in the Born of the Gods seeded prerelease booster packs, as there were with Theros?

    If so, how will it work? Will the blue path have the possibility of getting either Phenax or Ephara? Green could get Karametra or Xenagos? What are everyone's thoughts?

    We can't be sure of anything until the reveal how the pre-release runs. I can't see the pre-release being sixpack and seed pack of a small set. So the seeded packs might be all from Theros. (The way DGM's seed packs were RTR/GTC.)

    Rakath is right, most likely we'll just get a seed pack from Theros at the prerelease, cause a small set seed pack would be weird. Since this is speculation, I'll say that's what I think we're getting, and any of the new Gods will be left to chance!
    Current Decks:
    Xathrid Humans (Standard) WB
    Spellheart Pyromancer (Standard) UR
    Bots (Modern) UR

    Commander:
    Lin Sivvi W
    Captain Sisay GW
    Oloro WUB

    What? The promo prerelease cards have already been spoiled. The seeded boosters aren't from Theros. Or are you saying that all of the rest of the cards except for the promo card in the seeded booster pack will be from Theros? That wouldn't make a ton of sense, but I guess we'll see.

    Also, there are three Theros boosters and two Born of the Gods boosters. It would only make sense that the final seeded pack -- designed to entice players to come to the prerelease -- would be from the new set. Dragon's Maze was special in that it was immediately preceded by two large sets.

    The Theros seeded boosters did have multicolor cards you could get (Psychic Intrusion in the black one, etc.), so I figure there'll be a chance at the respective Gods in each.

    Especially if they end up being hybrid---then you could play, say, Ephara in a Boros deck if you wanted to.

    that's not what happened at all. kamahl stabbed phage, akroma, and some old lady and they became korona. then korona got stabbed by her "prophets" and kamahl got drunk with a mutant centaur

    That's the info I was waiting on, I mostly was stating that they wouldn't do a full set of Born packs + Born seed pack. Now when it comes to the seed packs with Mythics... It's probable by the names that they follow the WUBRG circle as to which color gets which God based on the Hero Card names.

    Lead = Emphara
    Outwit = Phenax
    Dominate = Mogis
    Conquer = Xenagod
    Thrive = Karametra

    This is, of course, speculation. They might not seed this way due to a small cardpool, but with the split being 3 Theros 2 Born, they probably want to up your chance at a God with the Seed pack. So I'm hopeful. It probably also means the seed packs lean toward a second ally color when it comes to the card makeup.

    i can't tell if you purposefully spelled it that way or if it was a typo(the 'd' IS right next to the 's' on a keyboard) but either way, i like it lol

    but i could imagine there being a chance of getting a God in your respective seeded packs. but that's if we're getting different seeded packs w/ BNG cards. if we get the same THS seeded packs with just the BNG promos, no chance of getting a BNG God. probably just a THS God. iirc, DGM had the respective seeded packs from RTR/GTC, just without the promos in them.

    I did it on purpose, but it isn't my idea, as other people have used that to separate Xenagos the planeswalker from Xenagos the creature.
