Where do you play God-Eternal Kefnet?
Mike starts out with the idea of replacing cards like Crackling Drake or Niv-Mizzet, Parun in control decks. Or, if you want to get really out there… At 4/5, God-Eternal Kefnet is actually a bigger body (and arguably more durable) than a Rekindling Phoenix.
But he’s just not thinking big enough.
Patrick’s answer? EVERYWHERE!
Play it in Dimir. Play it in Grixis Play it especially in Jeskai!
So tell me about God-Eternal Kefnet in Jeskai Control?
This Legendary Zombie God is good in all kinds of places, but has an especial synergy with the sweepers in the Jeskai deck.
It’s got a nice front for a four mana control creature, and more than three toughness… That makes it stick to Deafening Clarion like peanut butter to sandwich bread. The good God-Eternal can live through the Clarion… And also net some nice lifelink attacking through… Presumably nothing.
It’s also great with the new Boros sweeper Solar Blaze. Why? Simply because it has higher toughness than power! The new Wave of Reckoning variant simply lets this God-Eternal live to fight another day (or later the same turn, depending).
That can’t be all, can it?
Not by a long shot!
The most important piece of “secret tech” around God-Eternal Kefnet is that it works on both players’ turns. That’s right! You can draw extra on your turn “naturally” but really get some nice extra card advantage with Opt, or Chemister’s Insight on the opponent’s turn.
Don’t sleep on this card: It’s a Top Five for Standard according to Patrick.
Also The Wanderer play patterns for Modern
Per usual there is a LOT going on in this week’s podcast. It’s like an hour and a half actually. But we just wanted to shout out new and nameless Planeswalker “The Wanderer”.
The Wanderer is going to bedevil players primarily in Standard… But its Modern applications are really exciting, too.
- It’s hell on Burn – Turns off all their direct damage spells, turns off Eidolon of the Great Revel, etc.
- Valakut decks – Not only does it turn off the Molten Pinnacle… You get a free shot at straight up killing Primeval Titan!
- If you’re really greedy you can bounce and replay the thing to get even more removal action… But that’s probably not necessary
