The Buried Lord — the same demon that Liesa fought and likely temporary exiled (though she’s wearing his skin as a armor now but he can still come back) (also Jerren, corrupted bishop lore is he got killed by eldrazi's during eldritch moon after Ormendahl got corrupted by emrakul so we can get dead characters as cards.)
So probably gods based on the lore from them
and Since cycles comes in 5 usually the best idea I can come up with to loop hole the 5th one is a phyrexian praetor
I would love to see the mentioned gods of Inistrad in a set. But i think we dont see them until we revisited th plane again. Would also possible to see them in an other suplement set like Masters or a commander deck.
But - as said before - I would love to see more of those teasered gods. With the newest story (and the midnight hunt stories all together) the hints of those gods got even more.
Would be neat if Liar gets a story too. Maybe together with the Overslime.
That said, what would you think those gods are colorwise? Imo they would be mono-colored.
Clearly the Buried Lord gets the black spot.
The Drowned God gets the blue spot of course. (Simic if 2colored)
The others are a bit tricky.
The Coiled One could be green, but the story and description of him felt pretty black too... So Golgari?
Ghin-Danu could be white or green since all Inistrad human mechanics are green-white. Selesnya then?
Red doesnt get any hints of a forgotten god iirc.

I honestly got the impression that Ghrin-Danu was as mythological as the goddess Danu IRL and therefore wouldn't get a card. Honestly, it feels pretty nice, at least to me, that worshippers in MTG can still be barking up the wrong tree (e.g. all that worship of Tourach).
Of the ones mentioned in the OP, I think the one most likely to get a card is the Drowned (sadly, I don't think the Coiled One will get a God card even though one of the stories proved it was real). But I think the Drowned will be a 1-of.
