I've been going through Google and I can't seem to find a legal deity listing for Adventurers League.

What are the deities available to clerics? Are there any constraints, like choosing from Forgotten Realms or Greyhawk settings?


The answer is Yes, there are restrictions. Check with your season to make sure there are no exceptions. The general guideline is:

From the "adventure league's players guide" by WotC in the Section:

"Part 1: Characters" => "Character Creation" => "Choose a class":

Deities. D&D Adventurers League storylines are set in the Forgotten Realms, and as such, people worship the deities of that world. If you would like your character to worship a deity, you can choose one from the list of Forgotten Realms or nonhuman deities presented in appendix B of the Player’s Handbook or the D&D basic rules. Clerics and characters with the Acolyte background must choose a deity from that list. If you’re a cleric, you can choose one of the deity’s suggested domains or the Life domain. The Death domain is not allowed unless that rules option is available for your storyline season.

    \$\begingroup\$ The (apparent) latest version of the Player's Guide (from the AL Player's Pack states: "Deities. If your character worships a deity, those deities listed in the Deities of the Forgotten Realms and Nonhuman Deities tables in the PHB or any deity listed in the [PHB, EEPC, SCAG, Volo's, or Xanathar's] are available. While paladins don’t have to worship a deity, clerics do. If your deity doesn’t include suggested domains in the resource in which it is found, only the Life domain is available." \$\endgroup\$ – V2Blast Jul 8 '18 at 1:18
