Overwhelming Stampede Discussion
1 day ago
lil_cheez Ive considered Overwhelming Stampede, but it's really dependent on having a high powered creature on the field. Overrun doesn't have to wait on a fat body. I could slip out dorks for some beef. Craterhoof Behemoth is a fun idea!

Triumph of the Hordes makes for a great alternate win con. If you want, infect in general might make for a decent addition to the deck such as Phyrexian Swarmlord, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Phyrexian Hydra, and Blightsteel Colossus. Putting plus +1/+1 counters on these guys helps to make them especially potent and opens up a proliferate strategy through means such as Contagion Engine which in turn increases your basic strategy. Grafted Exoskeleton can be used to turn any of your normal threats like the hydras into incredibly potent monsters. Primordial Hydra is just plain stupid in any deck that runs even the slightest amount of ramp. Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor can help increase consistency and is better than any card that you honestly only need one of like Overwhelming Stampede win con type cards.

Nice deck. i use a red green mana ramp deck thats like this. Put Overwhelming Stampede in and everything gains 1+1 counters on it equal to your strongest creatures power. Even more trolly, they all gain trample. Use that on a strong Heroes' Bane and your set.

I assume you're morally against Craterhoof Behemoth and Avenger of Zendikar? Overrun Overwhelming Stampede and (brace yourself) Dragon Throne of Tarkir would be good for this deck, as would Kamahl, Fist of Krosa

You do not understand the card. At all. You can choose as many targets as you want to fight since you can distribute the counters: "When Polukranos, World Eater becomes monstrous, it deals X damage divided as you choose among any number of target creatures your opponents control. Each of those creatures deals damage equal to its power to Polukranos." So you can target creatures as many creatures as the number of counters you are placing on him, and if he has Basilisk Collar, or the Sword of Kaldra then that is an effective approach. In the scenario you isolate above, it would cost 11 mana, 15 if you had to cast Polukranos, and I guess 17 to equip the collar or 20 to equip the sword. However, the deck has no less than 7 ways to increase the amount of mana lands produce, and another 14 ways to search land out of the deck. So there is plenty on mana. Obviously, most of the time you don't have any equipment, so instead you either kill 1 pretty big creature or a couple of little ones for 11-17 mana. Most of the time, if I am using Polukranos's ability it is because I have a fat stack of mana available for him to use.
Polukranos is not the only strategy of the deck obviously; big mana and big creatures together can produce lots of fun board states. Squall Line, Craterhoof Behemoth, Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes, every eldrazi in the deck, Blightsteel Colossus, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa and Genesis Wave can win the game with just a few of the synergistic cards that can be found in the deck. Polukranos is an excellent tool, especially post board wipe or if you have a ton of mana available, but he is in no way a requirement for the deck to succeed. Instead, as I stated above, he provides something other green generals don't, and makes good use of the huge amount of mana the deck ramps into.
This is not theoretical, this is a deck I play regularly and is does just fine in a competitive meta environment. You should read cards fully and understand them before you start leveling criticism at someone that has no actual basis in reality. You are dismissive and your comments are unhelpful when you do that.
