Polukranos, World Eater Discussion

jubale on Your all time favourite Standard ...

2 weeks ago

Whirler Rogue! I loved that card, paired it with Willbreaker for some busted turns.
My most popular deck by far was Temur Ascendancy COMBO. Turn 6 draw your deck, destroy everything your opponent control and attack with infinite sized hasty creatures.

But I could challenge any standard deck in the modern era to face down this beast:


Standard* jubale


Green megamorph splash blue, my own innovation, dominated for 2 seasons despite my terrible play skills. It beat everything from Atarka Red (one of the most busted aggro decks ever) to Esper Control to all flavors of Abzan in between.

The game plan was the same against everybody: - Ramp into 5-drops Whisperwood Elemental and Prognostic Sphinx. Once you achieve that, you have unbreakable card advantage and board control.
- Courser of Kruphix provided life and land
- Deathmist Raptor came back over and over
- Den Protector rebought all your spells
- Counter magic was always ready to use because morphs and flash creatures could be played if nothing needs countering).
- And one-sided mass-removal in green: Setessan Tactics. And giant Polukranos, World Eater, who on a good day could eat anything your opponent has.

The game-locking combo was having Sphinx, Whisperwood and Courser. Sphinx would guarantee every turn a free land for Courser, a great manifest for Whisperwood and a good draw off the top. That's 3 cards per turn. Or if there's a problem, you could dig so fast through your deck to find an answer. You could even pull off crazy shenanigans like blocking with a manifested instant, let it die, then flip up a Den Protector and cast it.

And the sideboard was outstanding for the colors:- Clever Impersonator to copy and steal an enemy Dragonlord Silumgar
- Hornet Nest to flood the world with flying deathhtouch.
- Polymorphist's Jest to laugh at even Dragonlord Ojutai or monstrous Fleecemane Lion
- and sometimes, Aspect of Hydra. +10/+10 for 1 mana anybody?

DarkHamlet on Why not Hydras?

Like that idea!

Just that is a great deck, you may test it and post their changes around your meta. +1 for you :D

I little suggestion: -4 Fury of the Horde for +4 Rough, -4 Generator Servant for +3 Managorger Hydra and +1 Polukranos, World Eater!

Naksu on X Gon' Give It To Ya

I know every other Rosheen deck out there utilizes Hydras (as is mine), but for a reason. You should try to implement atleast a few powerful ones to have variety in finishers through combat damage!

It's different and nice anyway, I like it!

Naksu on Locus of Rage, I like bord wipes

Polukranos, World Eater and Bonfire of the Damned comes to mind for clearing the board efficiently. +1 for the Gruul love :)

thegigibeast on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

Hey guyz, I was looking at the tier list and a strange idea popped in my head about a tier 5 commander... More precisely, Polukranos, World Eater. I mean, it will never be the best option for mono-green, but I was wondering if something was possible with him at the helm of a deck, and I started thinking about stax.

How would this be a stax commander? Well, we could break parity by having a lot of effects against lands (Winter Orb, Mana Web, Tsabo's Weband stuff). Our own mana dorks would start breaking parity. Since we are in green, we would have an easy time to get rid of oponents mana rocks, breaking parity even more. And with our commander, while generating a lot of mana from dorks, we could get rid of annoying opponents mana dorks, breaking parity even more.

I feel like it would also be good against a lot of hatebears (with the rise of BloodPod decks it could be relevant to remove them). It could be used to wipe them all, while generating a huge beater to lower the life totals of AdNaus/DD players. I mean, this is not the most competitive thing around, but I am pretty sure it could benefit from some brewing...

I was wondering if anyone had insights on this idea, if anyone already tried it? If you guyz had any suggestions?

CreeperSithlord713 on Green hydra / +1/+1 deck

What about Polukranos, World Eater, for the insane field damage, and Khalni Hydra, which can come out for extremely low mana. Karametra's Acolyte will help pay for the huge x costs in your creatures. Very beautiful deck though. I used to ruj hydrates, and they were always incredible.

muffpuncher I was also considering getting rid of Boundless Realms, as it is just overkill in this deck and the new Traverse the Outlands is better suited for this deck. If I pull both Boundless Realms and Polukranos, World Eater, I would have room for both Staff of Domination and Soul of the Harvest.

Getting rid of Polukranos, World Eater is actually a good idea. He really is underwhelming, even with all the mana. The only real reason he is in there is for flavor and because I loved the art.
