Polukranos, World Eater Discussion

Elemental Bond should help your draw as well.

Polukranos, World Eater is one of the best hydras and pieces of removal for mono green.

Steel Hellkite, maybe Thundering Spineback, Scavenging Ooze, Deadeye Tracker, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Soul of New Phyrexia, Soul of Ravnica, Soul of Zendikar, Soul of Innistrad, Fertilid, Cryptbreaker, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Cemetery Reaper, Silklash Spider, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet, Memnarch, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Polukranos, World Eater, Chameleon Colossus, Heroes' Bane, Viral Drake, Ant Queen, Champion of Stray Souls, Sphinx of Magosi, Stitcher Geralf, Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter

Ruthless Knave has to have a way to go infinite with Training Grounds but I'm not sure how.

Magus of the Coffers goes infinite even without Training Grounds, but grounds does make it even better. Same with Palinchron.

Deadeye Plunderers + Training Grounds + Parallel Lives + Marrionette master is infinite damage. Replace Parallel lives with Doubling Season/Primal Vigor, or replace Master with Disciple of the Vault.

Deadeye Navigator would go infinite with a creature that produces 2 or more blue mana and a haste enabler, such as Concordant Crossroads. Kind of clunky as a 4-card combo, but it's on theme. ALso deadeye is just good to protect from removal.

Also Paradise Mantle + Pili-Pala + Training Grounds is infinite. You can replace Pili-Pala with Knacksaw Clique as well.

Remember with these infinite mana combos that infinite mana means infinite Tasigur activations, so you draw your whole deck, and you can mill everyone out with infinite Reality Shifts, which is a good removal spell on its own.

Really like the deck! Have you thought of Polukranos, World Eater? He can be a board wipe and there's nothing better at "mauling through your opponents with pure damage" than a 5/5 for 4 mana.

Matrixxx999 on Rhonas the Indomitable: Larger than Life

Thanks ClockworkSwordfish! Yes, monogreen surprised me with its ability to give almost anything for versatile building: ramp, tutors, draw extra cards, noncreature (and even creature) removal, recurcion etc.

Yeva, Nature's Herald was in the deck. Most of the time I didn't want to cast it. The main problem is that when it enters the battlefield, it doesn't change the state of the game in any way for your advantage. Usualy only after one turn she begin to give you some value, oh, and the only benefit from it in the same turn, is that it activates Rhonas (4 power). I can aford to have a creature which requires a full turn for value only if it is realy agressive creature, or does something realy powerful like Champion of Rhonas or Elvish Piper and could be used with haste. But I'll try again her maybe instead of Polukranos, World Eater.

Wile this deck was made for casual I'd really like it to be as good as possible, but most of what you suggested did not feel to synergetic with the rest. I wan't to bring it to a tourney if it ends up being good enough so I appreciate your help greatly, but Gaea's Revenge has protection from everything but green/colorless and has a good body but docent do much else compared to the others in the deck, Cloudthresherisn't vary helpful aside from the body and has the same problem as the last one. Hornet Queen is more useful then I thought with 4 tokens ( I thought I read one the first time) which I will consider. Polukranos, World Eater I will use! Thanks for helping! Any other ideas?

I think you could benefit a lot from including the "mini-combo" of Arbor Elf plus Utopia Sprawl. Both are cheap mana accelerators on their own, but get much better when combined. I highly recommend those cards, they will make you much more explosive. You could even add Overgrowth and Voyaging Satyr too, which would make the synergy more consistent. Reaching 8 ore more mana by turn 4 becomes easy that way.
One of the most powerful landfall cards is Tireless Tracker, but that might not fit into your budget.
Endless One is really underpowered in a green ramp deck, why not try something like Gaea's Revenge, Cloudthresher, Polukranos, World Eater, Hornet Queen or Pelakka Wurm instead? They all bring some nice bonus abilities and shouldn't be too expensive.

Drinktime on Garruk Green Devotion (w/ Combo)

I haven't played MtG for quite a bit of time and this deck filled me with the hope of playing again. I love the interactions, but I was wondering why you weren't playing Polukranos, World Eater. 4-mana drop that can possibly wipe the board by turn 4-5. Definitely worth testing out. Anyways, great deck and +1

jubale on Your all time favourite Standard ...

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?
