I will explore the consistency of Horndeski as a Gravitational Effective Field Theory and what an embedding within a Wilsonian high energy completion would imply. I will then emphasize how causality is manifested with gravity, a consideration which is particularly relevant for putting constraints on theories like Horndeski.
