Polukranos, World Eater Discussion

I love Polukranos, his issue however, is that he costs 4 mana to bring out and outside of the kill turn he was rarely used as removal. Unlike Ulvenwald Tracker, which can be a good interaction piece leading up to his eventual win loop. Tracker loops are as hard to accomplish as infinite mana loops are, so if you weren't stopped before getting there then the convoluted nature of tracker loops are negligible at that point.

Inkmoth- I love the deck and have built it with a few minor changes to fit my meta. +1 from me
One valuable addition that you might consider, however, is Polukranos, World Eater. Unless I'm missing something, he can kill the table's creatures to set up a Shaman of Forgotten Ways win with infinite mana by himself without needing to set up an Ulvenwald Tracker loop.

Was thinking to definitely remove Satyr Grovedancer. I think you are right about Jugan, the Rising Star as well. I would even consider removing Polukranos, World Eater as well. If I get constant counters, any creature should pretty much be fairly beefy. The Whispersilk Cloak was more for Gilder Bairn so I would have a way to untap it and use the ability or for an end game. No real intention of playing it on any creature I wanted targeted. However, Hardened Scales seems way more useful in the long run. Replacing one of each basic land is an easy sub. I like the plan right now and will work on updating this deck later today. Then I'll empty my acquire board after the order. Hopefully this deck makes me well hated on game night once it is completed.

I think you should stop thinking of mutate as an ETB effect. It's exactly what it says it is, you take a creature and change it. With Avenger, the creature is already on the battlefield, so it doesn't trigger twice. With Monstrosity, if you could somehow mutate Polukranos, World Eater onto the monstrous Hydra Broodmaster, then you couldn't activate either monstrosity ability because the creature is already monstrous and will stay monstrous for the rest of the game.

Thanks for the comment! The reason I run straight removal over fight spells is because they don't put Chevill at risk of a trade. He's really only a 1/3 so he can't take out large creatures and survive. Of course I run as many Aggressive Instinct like cards as I can, as they work as kill spells without any risk. I'm definitely still working on the creature base of this deck. The ideal creature is something with removal built in or benefits from removal such as Polukranos, World Eater and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled. As of right now I'm at a loss of better creatures to put in. Foe-Razer Regent is cool, but I try to keep the curve low, but he's definitely on deck if I can find a spot.

Karametra, God of Harvests is a good addition to this deck. You should perhaps also consider one of the Nylea cards as well. Managorger Hydra, Polukranos, World Eater are two worthy considerations; Greek mythology plus Renata's counter ability. Archon of Sun's Grace should also be in this deck. Daxos, Blessed by the Sun works well with your tokens. Season of Growth may also be of use to you. Destiny Spinner should also be considered. The First Iroan Games may also be worthy to consider. Sol Ring is a must in Commander (unfortunately). Setessan Champion is must. Bronzehide Lion is a creature and eventually an Aura. Staggering Insight is useful here too.
