Legendary Enchantment Creature — God

Indestructible As long as your devotion to blue and black is less than seven, Phenax isn't a creature. Creatures you control have "{T}: Target player mills X cards, where X is this creature's toughness."


Full image
When a God enters the battlefield, your devotion to its color (including the mana symbols in the mana cost of the God itself) will determine if a creature entered the battlefield or not for abilities that trigger whenever a creature enters the battlefield.
The type-changing ability that can make a God not be a creature functions only on the battlefield. It’s always a creature card in other zones, regardless of your devotion to its color. It’s always a creature spell while it’s on the stack.
The abilities of Gods function as long as they’re on the battlefield, regardless of whether they’re creatures.
Counters put on a God remain on it while it’s not a creature, even if they have no effect.
If you tap Phenax to activate the ability it grants itself, and Phenax is no longer a creature but still on the battlefield as that ability resolves, no cards will be put into the target player’s graveyard. Similarly, if Phenax isn’t on the battlefield as the ability resolves and wasn’t a creature when it left the battlefield, no cards will be put into the graveyard.
If you activate the ability Phenax grants to creatures you control, the toughness of the creature is calculated as the ability resolves. If the creature is no longer on the battlefield at that time, use its toughness when it was last on the battlefield.
Numeric mana symbols (, , and so on) in mana costs of permanents you control don’t count toward your devotion to any color.
Hybrid mana symbols, monocolored hybrid mana symbols, and Phyrexian mana symbols do count toward your devotion to their color(s).
