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

Arcavios[edit | edit source]

  • Ganathog, a being revered by the Oggyar ogres.[1]

Alara[edit | edit source]

Amonkhet[edit | edit source]

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.

Cridhe[edit | edit source]

  • The Maker, creator of the plane.

Dominaria[edit | edit source]

Innistrad[edit | edit source]

Ixalan[edit | edit source]

Kaldheim[edit | edit source]

There have been several cycles of gods on Kaldheim.[3] The previous gods were the Einir, who have since been replaced by the Skoti and have become the plane's elves.[4][3] The Skoti gods are connected to the World Tree using a Cosmos Elixir made from its sap to give them their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.

Kamigawa[edit | edit source]

  • The Kami, minor gods or spirits of the world

Lorwyn[edit | edit source]

Mercadia[edit | edit source]

  • The sky-god Ramos, worshipped by the Cho-Arrim
  • Orhop, the evil brother of Ramos

Mirrodin[edit | edit source]

Phyrexia[edit | edit source]

Rabiah[edit | edit source]

Ravnica[edit | edit source]

Of these, Ilharg is shown to be unambiguously real and a deity.

Shadowmoor[edit | edit source]

Theros[edit | edit source]

Main article: God

Theros' pantheon is perhaps some of Magic's best defined deities, being unambiguously real.[6] 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[7]):

Major gods[edit | edit source]

Minor gods[edit | edit source]

  • Emeria, merfolk deity of sky, wind, and clouds, Kamsa to the Kor
  • Ula merfolk deity of the sea's depths, Mangeni to the Kor
  • Omnath, the "flickering heart," the origin of the primal mana that pulses throughout Zendikar.
