This is a list of all gods and deities, or creatures that are worshiped as such, mentioned in the Magic storyline.



The Gods of Amonkhet, unlike their Theros counterparts, are physical beings tied to the planes' leylines, embodying virtues of the culture of the plane. Most have been slaughtered by Nicol Bolas and have been raised as zombies.


  • Ganathog (possibly {U}{R}), a being revered by the Oggyar ogres.[1]
  • The "gods of antiquity"[2]


  • The Maker, creator of the plane.

  • Mother of Winds[6]
  • Terrent Amese, creator of the first tribe of Jamuraan tiger warriors and later worshiped by their descendants in Efrava.

There have been several cycles of gods on Kaldheim.[14] The previous gods were the Einir, who have since been replaced by the Skoti and have become the plane's elves.[15][14] The Skoti gods are connected to the World Tree using a Cosmos Elixir made from its sap to give them their powers. As a result, they have northern lights on their bodies. They can be killed.

    • Koma ({G}{U}), the Cosmos Serpent




  • Arabeka ({W}), creator god, and a mythologized version of Rebbec.[17]

  • Orhop, the evil brother of Ramos






  • Marit Lage ({B}), patron god of the "Hall of the Hospitallers of the Frozen Heart".

Serra's Realm[]





Main article: God

Theros' pantheon is perhaps some of Magic's best defined deities, being unambiguously real.[26] Like some angels and demons, Theros' gods are living enchantments, making the concept of enchantments considered divine blessings by the plane's mortals. They are associated with the paranormal realm known as Nyx, the night sky, which is in turn associated with dreams and the subconscious; there is something of an implication that these gods are powered/come to into being by belief, though this is not explicit. The Theros pantheon is seemingly very large, but there are five main gods aligned with the colors of mana, at least eleven minor gods and some gods that have been forgotten (like the one who represented love[27]):
