Faith of the Devoted
 
In a sense, this is pretty much box-checking design. Cycling is this season's mechanic, so here's an enchantment that interacts with it. Of course, that would overlook how many cards throughout all of Magic this interacts with. Astral Slide still appears now and then in casual play, and while you could probably argue that deck doesn't really need any more help, how many ways are there to turn Dark Deal into lethal damage on the spot? You can even use it as a sideboard card against your friend's Death Cloud or Smallpox decks, and there's little to dislike about a card that versatile.

Faith of the Devoted (6/9)

 

Faith of the Devoted is another of the payoff cards for the cycling deck in Amonkhet, letting you bleed your opponents down as you cycle through your deck. The problem is that it's not great: you need a high density of cycling cards to get it to work, and this does nothing on its own (and you need the extra mana to get bleeding). Cycling has better payoff pieces, like Drake Haven, and this largely fails to make the grade.
