MtG Art: The Gods of Theros, part 1 of 3

The fifteen Gods of Theros have some impressive art. This three-part series looks at each God in turn. This first part looks at the five gods of the Theros set.


Heliod, God of the Sun by Jaime Jones


The sun god is the Zeus equivalent on Theros. While not so all-powerful as his Greek analogue, Heliod is very much first among equals when it comes to the gods of Theros. This art by Jaime Jomes shows him towering over the landscape, spear in hand. Sunlight catches the point of the spearing, providing a bright point to draw the eye.

Thassa, God of the Sea by Jason Chan


There are no goddesses on Theros, every deity, male or female, is referred to as a ‘god’. Thassa embodies the treacherous ocean, and draws most of her worshippers from the merfolk of Theros, any any fishermen who want their boats back in one piece.

Erebos, God of the Dead by Peter Mohrbacher


In this art by Peter Mohrbacher, Erebos dominates a cracked and blasted wasteland, a fitting stage for the god of the dead. With his whip curled around him, Erebos seems focused on something behind the viewer. It’s probably best to be beneath the notice of this god.

Purphoros, God of the Forge by Eric Deschamps


Eric Deschamps gives us a god of the forge bursting forth from a mountain that is cracked and split with lava. Clouds of steam or possible ash surround this god as he emerges into the mortal realm.

Nylea, God of the Hunt by Chris Rahn


nylea largeIn Nylea we have our Artemis of this realm. Towering over the forests that are the source of her power, Nylea stands, bow drawn, ready to loose at her target. Of all the Gods of Theros, Nylea is shown as the most actively aggressive.
