Amonkhet Previews: Bontu the Glorified


Bontu the Glorified 2B

Legendary Creature – God

Menace, indestructible

Bontu the Glorified can’t attack or block unless a creature died under your control this turn.

1B, Sacrifice another creature: Scry 1. Each opponent loses 1 life and you gain 1 life.


The last god of Amoknhet is previewed today: Bontu the Glorified.

I like this god a lot. Just like Rhonas, Bontu is a Commander, Tiny Leader, and probably Standard playable. Turning creatures into scrying is powerful. Viscera Seer was Standard playable in its time. Bontu also drains life from your opponents. That’s each opponent to so it’s relevant in Commander. Sacrificing creatures can be good value too because of embalm. Scrapheap Scrounger and Bontu are probably best friends.

Bontu is also huge and menacing. Like it has menace. And it can attack if you sacrifice a creature. Bontu is unlikely to give bad value if blocked to death. The six toughness means he can take on a few creatures and take down at least one or two.

Hopefully we get some more graveyard tricks to combo here.
