Polukranos, World Eater Discussion

Since Nikya is your commander, you can play 12 mana creatures the turn after he comes out, and that's impressive. Here's a few budget options. Ancient Stone Idol , Darksteel Colossus , Desolation Twin , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Artisan of Kozilek , Ulamog's Crusher , It That Betrays , Primeval Protector . Some other fun cards are hydras like Heroes' Bane , Polukranos, World Eater , and Primordial Hydra .

Some more creature ramp is Burnished Hart or even Wild-Field Scarecrow if you wanted.

For a creature heavy deck, I highly suggest Garruk's Horde , Vizier of the Menagerie , Primordial Sage , and Soul of the Harvest .

Hi,

Nice deck. Looks a lot like what we've built: Engulfed in Energy.

Have you considered Uncage the Menagerie? Bit less powerful than Genesis Wave but still, ...

Also, for all of that (infinite) mana you're going to hoard, you could consider some more creature-outlets on which to spend it like Heroes' Bane, Hydra Broodmaster, Polukranos, World Eater and Primordial Hydra.

Last but not least, Staff of Domination can also help Selvala go infinite. And during the early game, we've found Instill Energy and Nature's Chosen to also be great with her.

Have fun brewing and playing.

Regards,

Mrs. and Mr. NV_1980

Nice deck, +1! What do you think about cutting the Jade Mages and one of the Polukranos, World Eaters for a playset of Banefire for an instant kill?

Flooremoji: True, but you can do this infinitely, so they'd never be able to do combat with them. Eventually, you can run into Polukranos, World Eater and he wipes them out, or you just go infinite power and toughness and win through the red zone.

Hi,

We feel that Exploration and Oracle of Mul Daya would be real nice in here. Also, with the speed at which this deck takes off and the vast amount of mana you'll have available at some point, some really nice bombs to add would be cards like Hydra Broodmaster and Polukranos, World Eater.

Have fun with this deck!

Wkr,

I feel like most of your most recent changes actually weakened the deck. Let's go over them:

Hidden Herbalists: This card is strong in decks that can reliably trigger revolt. Yours cannot. The reason most zoo decks run it is because they run about a dozen fetchlands, which is way outside your budget.

Keldon Marauders: Meh. Not a terrible choice, but I don't think it justifies cutting Goblin Bushwhacker/Goblin Wardriver.

Zhur-Taa Druid: The upside of 1 extra damage per turn does not justify playing this over a 1-cost mana dork. Remember that in modern, 3 damage is worth about 1 mana, so you're going to need to tap this at least 4 times for mana in order for it to start to be justified. Except even then it won't because you didn't get to spend 3 mana on turn 2. Honestly, there's a good argument for not running dorks at all in a zoo list, but if you do, make sure they all cost 1 mana.

Roast: I think this one is fine. Just keep in mind that not being able to go face/hit flyers is a notable downside of Lightning Strike. Really depends on your local meta.

Thud: This is not a good card for your deck. Most of your creatures have 1 or 2 power,and even when pumped, they go up to about 3 or 4. The only "good" target for this is Polukranos, World Eater, which you only have 2 copies of. But that's not something you just want to through away for a bit of damage. Sacrificing any creature is a significant cost, and at sorcery speed, you can't really do any fancy tricks with it.

Otherworldly Outburst: Interesting choice. Keep in mind that it will be a dead card in some matchups though, but I could see it stealing some wins too.

Temur Battle Rage: I guess lagotripha has only ever tested Death's Shadow decks, because Ghor-Clan Rampager is almost always better. Specifically, Ghor-Clan Rampager is much better for creatures with power 3 or less, they are pretty much identical for creatures with exactly 4 power, and battle rage becomes slightly better as the power increases beyond that. As I mentioned earlier, you have 2 creatures with power > 4. Battle rage will be a dead card the majority of the time. Ghor-Clan Rampager is almost never a dead card, because you can always play it as a creature. I think it's very clear which one you'd rather be running.
