    You’ve convinced me to give Mogis, and Ephara a chance as generals. Can Tom point me to a decklist for inspiration?

  2. Jeremy Parsons said

    As much as folks might complain about Ephara and Xenagos being creature bound, neither is as bad as the prime god Nylea. And frankly the effects of those two lesser gods have much more punch to them. Maybe if they hadn’t put all the interesting effects on Nylea’s bow….
