complex, probably-never-important rules question:

I control Erebos, God of the Dead. I don't have any other black permanents, so it's not a creature. that means it doesn't have any associated creature types either, so it's not a God. now I play Opalescence. Erebos's ability is applied first, making it a non-creature enchantment, then Opalescence's is applied, making it a 4/4. a) is that sequence correct? and b) is it now a God?

my instinct on b is that it is not. the "stop being a creature" effect of Erebos's ability removed the creature type, then Opalescence was applied, but that shouldn't bring it back. but I don't know for sure.

:duel:

It is a god! It has God in it's type line, and that type will apply so long as Erebos is a creature. The "not being a creature" ability on Erebos never says that it removes the card type, but as only Tribal cards and Creature cards can have creature types, it wouldn't be a God while not a creature. Since Opalescence brings back the creature quality, the God creature type will be in effect.

As long as Erebos is a creature, and it's creature type isn't changed, it's a God.
