Today Jan. 15, 2014 Wizards of the Coast revealed Xenagos, God of Revels, one of the newest "Born of the Gods" spoilers from the company's upcoming expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set in an upload to Instagram. Xenagos, God of Revels joins Mogis, God of Slaughter and Ephara, God of Polis as one of the five minor gods featured in the set. This mythic rare legendary enchantment creature makes a powerful tool for Gruul players to abuse in their decks.
Xenagos, God of Revels - 3RG
Legendary Enchantment Creature - God (Mythic Rare)
As long as your devotion to red and green is less than seven, Xenagos isn't a creature.
At the beginning of combat on your turn, another target creature you control gains haste and gets +X/+X until end of turn, where X is that creature's power.
Xenagos, God of Revels doubles the power of one of your creatures each turn and give it haste. The beauty of Xenagos is that it'll pump one of your creatures the turn you play it. With a little mana ramp from an Elvish Mystic your third turn Ghor-Clan Rampager, Polukranos, World Eater, or Ember Swallower will be able to inflict a massive amount of damage in short order.
Xenagos, God of Revels is just absolutely insane on larger creatures such as Arbor Colossus, Ruric Thar, The Unbowed, or a monstrous Stormbreath Dragon. Want to see something truly crazy? If you've somehow managed to get a Worldspine Wurm onto the battlefield (say, with Garruk, Caller of Beasts) Xenagos, God of Revels will allow you to attack with a 30 powered trampler. If that doesn't end the game what will?
How will you use Xenagos, God of Revels?
