I love this. I love her vase, her earrings. Her general feel is great. The idea of all civilization as being a gift from her is pretty crazy.

She's also a pretty fun card advantage machine in decks that love playing dudes, making dudes, flashing in dudes and flickering dudes. All things I like!

You can take Ephara's flavor a couple different ways - I enjoy them all.

Whenever a creature enters - this refers to the growth of the Polis, as babies are born Ephara gains power - she learns from each mortal as they grow and mature so that durring the next upkeep she has learned enough to draw you a card.

- Alternately this refers to whenever a creature comes of age and enters the polis as an adult - as we know parasophia is part of the Polis (gods I hope we get a Parasophia card) - and she learns from each new student as they explore and learn. Ephara is the embodiment of this learning and so draws you a card as new arguments enter the great conversation that is Meletis.

I've been proxying this in my gift of immortality, sacrifice deck (burnished hart and trading post) and its beautiful.

Also note akroan horse, and heliod, god of the sun as consistent creature sources on yo... (see all)

Works well with prophet of kruphix, casting creatures every turn. Draw on each upkeep. Bant colours

I think that what I like most about this card is that Wizards is pushing a creature based strategy with U/W instead of the typical control strategy.

I am a tad bit disappointed here. The Good is Azorius has great ways to enable devotion and the extra power at 6 is nice. The Bad is that I really am not in favor of her draw ability and I wish she had something different. Overall 3/5 for me.

While this card is undeniably awesome. Considering she is supposed to be the patron goddess of all the basic principles of civilization, I feel her ability should check for permanents rather than just creatures.

I'm sure this has already been answered somewhere, but does a W/B mana symbol = 2 devotion? An example would be Judge's Familiar.

What, this? This is my floating hat. I am a god, you know.

@K34: Drawing a card every upkeep for 4 mana would be insane. Making it indestructible and sometimes a creature? I suspect that would be banned or restricted in every major format. This triggers on every player's turn, not just yours. Mythic doesn't just mean powerful, it means unique and flashy. Its not an excuse to make a card broken.

I think this and Karametra are the two most powerful gods for EDH. Blue/white and flicker are already strong in EDH, and now I can draw a card on each of my opponent's turns as long as I can flicker or flash in a creature? I am sure my opponents are going to hate me, all you need to break this is a Deadeye Navigator and some ETB effects. Luminate Primordial anyone?
