The Mythic Odysseys of Theros book lists, for each of the gods, the domains most associated to them, as well as a list of suggested classes.

Here is an example for Athreos (p. 38):

Athreos’s Champions

Alignment: Usually lawful, often evil
Suggested Classes: Cleric, monk, rogue, wizard
Suggested Cleric Domains: Death, Grave (described in Xanathar’s Guide to Everything)
Suggested Backgrounds: Hermit, sage, sailor, urchin

Obviously, this isn't an exhaustive list.

However, I haven't found a similar mapping for the warlock pacts or patrons. Does any information on this exist in the book (that I've missed)? If not, is such information available elsewhere?

Otherwise, how can I best determine which gods/monsters/entities make sense for each warlock pact and patron?

    \$\begingroup\$ I've edited your secondary question to ask more about the best way to determine what entity best matches each pact/patron, since a full assessment of "which gods/monsters/entities make sense for each warlock pact and patron?" itself would likely be both too broad and heavily opinion-based. \$\endgroup\$ – V2Blast Aug 15 '20 at 4:49

Chapter 2 of MOoT gives suggested classes for the different gods. Warlock appears on 4 of those lists:

The section on each of these gods includes great detail about their history, and even includes a favor table that has some roleplay ideas for how your character has some relationship with the particular god. There doesn't seem to be any guidance beyond this for the warlock class, at least you've got some patrons to choose from.

    \$\begingroup\$ Yup, I've seen that part of the book, so it's good to have that confirmed. Do you have anything else on top? Maybe a recommendation on what gods map to what patron/pact? \$\endgroup\$ – AncientSwordRage Jun 25 '20 at 12:04

    \$\begingroup\$ There's no further guidance in the book about that. It would just be an exercise in comparing what Theros says about each god to known information about the various patron subclasses. Such an exercise would largely be a matter of opinion, I think. \$\endgroup\$ – Thomas Markov Jun 25 '20 at 12:09
  • \$\begingroup\$ That's a real shame. I don't think adding detail would be too bad, as if you're familiar with the source material it should be a well informed opinion. \$\endgroup\$ – AncientSwordRage Jun 25 '20 at 12:30

    \$\begingroup\$ As time permits I can work toward making some calculated suggestions and add them to the answer, but I probably couldn't do it today. Maybe someone else will come along with a helpful answer to that effect before I can do so. \$\endgroup\$ – Thomas Markov Jun 25 '20 at 12:33

    \$\begingroup\$ That would be great. Given time, I may self-answer as well. \$\endgroup\$ – AncientSwordRage Jun 25 '20 at 12:34
