But the ambiguity is "which depowered Heliod's spear: the "this is true one" or the "that is fake one?"
@newdarkcloud Though I'll grant that WotC might not have bothered coming up with an answer to that question.
I don't know if it follows from "you can create a new god by believing in them, and alter the powers of an existing god by believing things about them" that "forgetting about a god undoes them."
Like, it could be that the changes collective belief makes to the fabric of Nyx are self-sustaining, and not require sustained belief to be maintained.
"At the beginning of your precombat main phase, exile target card from a graveyard. If it was a land card, add or . Otherwise, you gain 2 life and Klothys deals 2 damage to each opponent." makes a lot more sense as an ability if you think of it being meant for a Persephonic figure.
This JUST hit me.
Remember all the puzzlement about [[Klothys, God of Destiny]]? About the "why is a destiny god ? That doesn't fit with a take on the Fates!"
Because Klothys isn't a take on the fates. The hint is she lives in the underworld.
She's a take on PERSEPHONE.
Probably specifically the pre-hellenic, Mycanean Liner-B, "Kore/Despoina, Dread Persephone, don't ever say her name because it'll make her notice you" version.
@mycroft Ah, ok.
I don't see any way to template that isn't just... spelling it out. Or putting it in a silver border and trusting players to intuit how Playertrample ought to work.
@mycroft The timing on that first ability might need to be reworded a little, but you get what I mean.
I put Magic cards through Google Translate until the results are sufficiently funny. (Gay, he/him #LetAjaniHaveaBoyfriend)
