Polukranos, World Eater

Legendary Creature — Hydra

: Monstrosity X. (If this creature isn't monstrous, put X +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes monstrous.)

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.

It works even with other cards like Polukranos, World Eater

Firstly Pernicious Deed is not modern legal, secondly three Lazotep Plating feels bad, especially in the mainboard, I would move at least one to the sideboard in exchange for more removal, and maybe another one for the third stubborn denial. I don't like Kalonian Hydra because it feels win more and would remove at least two from the deck, in its place I would add either a Mistcutter Hydra if your meta has a lot of control decks, or Polukranos, World Eater if your meta has a lot of creature based decks. It is a cool deck that definitely needs tuning, though I like going into BUG colors rather than Gruul, as it gives you more interaction, I would run with that idea of interaction. Hope I've helped.

Thanks Lame_Duck I actually have 2 Polukranos, World Eater On the way along with another Primordial Hydra but good call on removing Managorger Hydra I realize it really doesn’t do any good for me because I’m looking for huge hydras without waiting for them to grow. Genesis Hydra does make a good tutor for when I go infinite (to find a Kalonian Hydra or a Hydra Broodmaster ) but I suppose I really don’t need two of them. I’m thinking about adding 2 Walking Ballista for another infinite win con. Definitely going to add more Hydra Broodmaster and 2 more Kalonian Hydra . Thanks for the suggestions! Happy tapping!

I've played around with a casual Hydra tribal deck that follows a similar game-plan to this one and, from my experience, you should focus more on Hydras that are effective both when your big mana-generation plan is working and when it isn't. So, I'd up the number of Hydra Broodmaster , Kalonian Hydra and Primordial Hydra and also give Polukranos, World Eater a try. I found Managorger Hydra to be a disappointment since it was basically only good when cast on turn 2 and the odds of hitting something good with Genesis Hydra to be too low in a deck full of creatures, so consider cutting those.

insanedachshund Terastodon is strictly better than Meteor Golem , that sounds like a great substitution.

Here are some suggested cuts

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: Thank you very much good sir, I appreciate the kind words!! Hopefully one day you join the dark side and embrace combos. :)

Winding Canyons : The deck is actually not starved of this ability. In fact, if you think about it, Command Beacon being on the chopping block is a really good indicator of it. The reason why is because getting rid of Yeva is never a factor because I always unload my hand in response to that removal and she is never out unless I have stuff worthy of being played. That land might be going out for Sunscorched Desert as a Plan D wincon since I don't need Shaman of Forgotten Ways to have haste for me to win at instant speed.

Krosan Grip : I love it, but I don't have space for it and it's too costly to merit it as some have said. I also don't have many Food Chain opponents.

Polukranos, World Eater : My heart breaks. He was in the earlier iterations of the deck as a finisher with Kamahl, Fist of Krosa , unfortunatedly Somberwald Stag eliminated the need for both and it still kills Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Linvala, Keeper of Silence (which Polukranos, can't). Meanwhile, I already have Lignify , Song of the Dryads , and Beast Within to deal with them. Torpor Orb has no longer posed as much of a threat with the current state of the deck tbh.

Heroic Intervention : Warping Wail has made this obsolete and even when I don't draw it, the deck usually combos off or outvalues board wipes since I can resolve my spells before or after them.

Gaea's Herald : I truly wish I could replace the cat for herald, but as it stands, I play against 3 blue players and it sucks to see a secondary counter which happens quite often actually. Prowling Serpopard is definite security against that.

Squall Line & Elderscale Wurm : Very enticing if it wasn't for their uselessness outside of winning. I wish I could consider it.

Once again, thank you very much and for the upvote!

Soren841: I wish I could do Memory Jar loops. I mean I could but like you said, sorc speed. Herald IS better until you factor how many counters I usually spent stopping me. Definitely a meta call.

DiverDown: Honestly, I was completely out of my element regarding an approachable budget list, cause I didn't know what that was exactly. Abzkaban was kind enough to point me in a good direction and I personally didn't know whether $200 was too much or not. I'm glad of the amount of people that came out of the woodworks to defend the $200 price tag. Made me feel like I hit the right number at $2 a card. I would love to see the lists you're referring to, btw! To return the favor and I am always down to see a new list. :D

I'm glad you enjoyed both variants of the deck, I worked obsessively long on it, that it is just a delight to read all the positive comments.

Thank you all!! :D
