Quote from Lithl »Quote from Damnosus »Wow, really boring spoilers. I was hoping that the gods would be enchantments like the Theros ones (I am super sick of wizards only pushing creatures and artifacts), but oh well.I'm neither surprised nor disappointed that the Amonkhet gods are not enchantments. The flavor of Amonkhet's magic is very different from that of Theros, and based on Hazoret we've got a wider design space for limiting the gods from attacking, other than just devotion for all. That they're always creatures also makes them less a pain to deal with.

Quote from Manite »Righteous Cause can help, though Orim's Prayer is cheaper and makes opponents less likely to attack you. Nyx-Fleece Ram gains life turn after turn and Angelic Chorus gains you life for playing lots of creatures (handy with Evening and Starfield on the, er, field).
Quote from Kedvesem »I actually have a Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis Enchantress deck. It is my absolute favorite, and even my darling, who is a certified U mage with no love for permanents in play (his pet decks are Baral, Chief of Compliance mono-U control and Mizzix of the Izmagnus storm...) keeps coming back to play this one.
My decklist is here. My win-cons are the Theros gods or K&T with an Ancestral Mask or some such. Obliterate with some devotion will do it, too.
In my experience, Land Tax will not help you. K&T generally have more lands than anyone else. I love the mana doublers, so I run Mirari's Wake, Mana Reflection, and Zendikar Resurgent. They can beat face with Starfield of Nyx (another pet card) in play, and honestly, having the mana to keep play the enchantments that let me draw that let me play more is amazing, and Aggravated Assault with Bear Umbra makes for a fun beatdown.
