Outside the Box – JOURNEY INTO NYX SPOILERS #2 – Devoted to Keranos!

Let’s get the introductions out of the way shall we, may I present to you Keranos, God of Storms!

My deck building wheels started turning as soon as I saw him.  My thoughts went immediately to utilizing the mono blue devotion list and splashing red for Keranos and Purphoros, as mixing Keranos with Thasa seems almost broken and Purphoros along with Master of Waves could be an incredible finisher. The reason I want Thasa along for the ride Keranos is the fact we can manipulate our first draw for the turn before he triggers utilizing Thasa’s Scry mechanic, as the more you can Scry before drawing on your turn the more likely you are to have the benefit you are looking for from Keranos. The addition of Purphoros in my plans for this deck list adds damage immediately granted by casting our creatures, which allows Master of Waves to shine. With all that said here is a deck list I have thrown together for future play testing.
