Four gods from Amonkhet are invading Ravnica to lead Nicol Bolas's army in War of the Spark, and they're returning in their God-Eternal forms. We've already seen the new Bontu card, and now, Wizards of the Coast has revealed the green Amonkhet god: God-Eternal Rhonas!

It looks like all the gods in the new Magic: The Gathering set will have the ability to go back to the owner's library if it dies or gets exiled instead of having indestructibility. Even Ilharg, the Raze Boar has that ability. To get the most value from Rhonas, you need to have a good amount of strong creatures before he hits the battlefield. Being able to double your creatures' power and giving them vigilance can help you gain combat advantage that your opponent may find overwhelming. This will probably see play in mono-green decks with the new Nissa card. Being able to trigger him again from the same copy a few turns after he returns to your deck can be devastating as long as you have a good amount of creatures to boost.

Are you a fan of God-Eternal Rhonas?

War of the Spark will be released on May 3, 2019. Prerelease events will take place on April 27-28.
