Godhead of Awe

By definition it will be the biggest creature on the table. Unless your opponent has Blanchwood Armor or something, of course, but add to that the fact that it's a 4/4 flyer for 5, and you've got something good. Air Elemental may not have caught on, but this just might.

Constructed- 3.5
Casual- 3.5
Limited- 4.5

Godhead of Awe
 
Judging by Shadowmoor, hybrid mana in a creature's cost is a reasonable excuse to throw the mana curve clear out the window. Godhead of Awe is an amazing card for a control or mid-range white, blue, or white-blue deck, better in some circumstances even than Crovax, Ascendant Hero. Where the best he can do against Kokusho is make him hit for four instead of five, the Godhead renders him weak as a Kithkin. The mana cost is prohibited, but like her brother Revenge, the effect is worth it.
 
Constructed: 4/5

Godhead of Awe

I don't see much use for this in Constructed because its ability just isn't that powerful. It's ability is useless for a finisher in any control deck and that's pretty much where it'll get played if it does.

In casual, it opens up a lot of combos, like with Goblin Sharpshooter to wipe out an opponent's field.

Constructed: 1.5/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 3.5/5

Godhead of Awe

            I don’t see this card going anywhere in constructed. Crovax, Ascendant Hero fills the same general slot and is more of a nightmare for fairies.

            In casual, I can see this card seeing play, but not more so than any other big angel.

            In limited, a 4/4 flier among a sea of 1/1s is a setup I will take any day.

 

Constructed: 1.5

Casual: 3

Limited: 4.5

Miguel Godhead of Awe

Constructed: This card is okay for any format. A flying, 4/4 for 5 mana not to bad. It can give blue and white decks a nice flyer. But its ability looks awesome at first glance, but it only makes them 1/1s. They can still be pump up by other abilities or auras and equipment and +1/+1 counters, etc. But Mr. Green T. (Tarmogoyf) will be a 1/1. I pitty the fool!

Casual: These Spirit Avatars should be a great hit with the kitchen table players. They can really get create with this card in the hands of the masses.

Limited: Another great card for Sealed deck and Draft. If you got some good blue and white cards build a deck around it. First pick for draft, for all three packs. Get it out first and it can make the Demigod of Revenge a flying, haste 1/1. I have seen many games where there is a standstill with creatures on both sides of the board. Drop it into play and unless there is no pumping or alot of flyers on your opponents side it can shift the power to your side.

It look like a fun card to play around with. It can be Deathmark, Terror and Sudden Death to the graveyard. It's a creature just like the rest of them with a very interesting ability. Have fun with it.

Constructed: 3
Casual: 3
Limitied : 4

Enjoy
Miguel
