Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

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

The third and final set in the Theros block gives us another five multicolour gods. This means that each of Magic’s five colours is presented by itself in Theros, and then as each of the 10 available colour pairs in Born of the Gods and the third set, Journey Into Nyx.


Athreos, God of Passage by Ryan Barger


Athreos guards the passage from the world of the living to the world of the dead. Without fear or favour he ushers each person across and keeps the dead separate from the living. Ryan barder has used vivid colours to paint a sombre scene with this art.


Iroas, God of Victory by Slawomir Maniak


Iroas and Mogis are known as the twin gods and are constantly at war with each other. Iroas takes the form of a centaur in contrast to Mogis’ minotaur form.


Keranos, God of Storms by Daarken


This is probably the darkest of all the god arts, which serves to create contrast with the bright lightning held by Keranos.


Kruphix, God of Horizons by Daarken


In Magic, the colours blue and green when combined represent a crossover of nature and knowledge. Kruphix is the god associated with prophecy in Theros. There is knowledge, but it is cryptic and difficult to use. Kruphix’s own form is hidden entirely by the starfield of Nyx, though additional arms are visible.


Pharika, God of Affliction by Peter Mohrbacher


Though she is known as god of affliction, Pharika possesses the ability to heal or hurt, depending on her mood. She is associated with Gorgons, who are definitely on the ‘hurt’ side of the equation, however many human healers also pray to Pharika for guidance when creating medicines or healing diseases.
