The thing about Polk and toughness boosters is that he only prevents damage if he has a counter to remove, unlike Phantom Nishoba and friends in the old days. As long as he has at least 1 counter, all damage is prevented, but 0 counters is vulnerable. To get Polkranos stable you need to give him +toughness (so he doesn't die to 0 toughness SBE) and some mechanism to refund counters (so he doesn't take real damage). Vampiric Embrace is the only card that does it in one card to allow for tactical sniping. Outside that toughness boosts from auras or equipment are a dime a dozen, but triggered counters are a little more scarce. Eternal Thirst, Sadistic Glee, and Blade of the Bloodchief are probably the best sources.

Of course part of the beauty of this guy is that if he dies you can just let him hit the 'yard and Escape for a bigger commander. In fact, in some cases it might better to play for that, using something like Rogue's Passage to get in the 2-hit with Commander damage rather than trying to win on board presence.

I've never really seen the hype for GG. I get it, especially here you get to chuck three to the yard to fuel escape, but drawing 6-12 cards more than once even with discarding to hand size doesn't seem like where I want to be, unless I'm missing something.


Ooh. See, I like Eternal Thirst for the lifelink and similar effect, but that straight up boost is great too... I think it'd be a spot-on replacement for Warbriar Blessing

Impressive list given the tight budget! You might like these: Wilderness Reclamation , Perilous Forays (Sporemound's BFF), Eternal Thirst , Fallen Ideal , Fungal Sprouting , Life and Limb (combos with Sporemound + sac outlet. decent on it's own too since it lets your saprolings tap for ), Pitiless Plunderer , Frontier Siege
