If you don't see why is this card is great, consider that this card would still be incredibly good:

Thassa, Inanimate Object of the Sea | 2U
Legendary Echantment
Indestructible
At the beginning of your upkeep, scry 1.
1U: Target creature you control can't be blocked this turn.

The activated ability is good for obvious reasons, one of which is Bident of Thassa. But three mana to Scry 1 before your draw step in every turn for the rest of the game? Stop and think about that for a moment, it might be a lot better than you think.

Then they added the ability to become a 5/5 indestructable creature with pseudo-haste, which by the way, is pretty easy to achieve with Bident, Nightveil Specter, Tidebinder Mage and Frostburn Weird, which are all very good cards in their own right?

WotC is practically begging us to play this card.

Without even being a creature she's extremely powerful. Her scry ability says that for the rest of the game after turn three you get to decide, "Do I want this card next?"

Her activated ability allows you to sneak in a couple of hits if you have the extra mana in most cases, but opens up a huge amount of combos if desired.

I assume she has such a low cost and retains her high power because blue typically doesn't keep around too many permanents to bring her out as a creature. In some settings, I would say the most powerful of the gods, and she's definitely my favorite.

I do love Thassa. She's my favorite of the Gods, though I haven't, admittedly, played with any of them. The only thing that I complain about is that I don't get which god she's supposed to be.

Erebos is a spot-on Hades. He lives in the realm of the dead and is melancholy, but by no means actually evil. The whole "being accepting of one's fate" thing is very Hades-like.

Heliod is a good Apollo. The god who literally makes the sun shine? And it shows in his personality? Even down to using the spear, he screams "Apollo".

Nylea is Artemis, though the name seems more inspired by a portmanteau of "Nymph" and "Diana".

Likewise, Purphoros is Hephaestus. They even got the "ph" in there! He's totally god of the forge and mountains.

But Thassa? Poseidon is male and not (often?) said to be serpent-like. Triton, the more minor deity, also has more or less the same problem. I'd say she's supposed to be Athena, but Athena isn't really associated with the sea. (She's the daughter of an Oceanid... (see all)

Every time I look at the card I keep thinking she is in the sky. Then I look down and see the islands.

Yea, amazing art and very powerful effect. What more could you want in a card?

@AmericanVigor: Agree with your statements, not much to add, except regarding your remark about her scrying ability being unique: Witches' Eye. That doesn't mean it's any less impressive, mind you, and Witches' Eye requires tapping creatures to use it (though once it's in play, you could move it around to different creatures, maybe tokens, and keep using it for {2} as opposed to her {1}{U} ).

It amazes me she's only 3 mana, when the other Gods are all four-drops. Even if nothing else, having a 3 CMC 5/5 indestructible creature wouldn't be too bad, even if it's a bit conditional.

My only issue with the new god types as a practicing Christian is that they aren't nearly bad ass enough.

I mean come on. Even Jesus had Islandwalk.

Most pushed one of the Theros gods. Breaks the symmetry in cost & powerlevel :(
