Polukranos, World Eater Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions Joumba. I really enjoy playing Consumptive Goo, it's an all star. I've been contemplating Kamahl, Fist of Krosa for some time, but I'm having a hard time considering him for the land kills. He is extremely useful and one of my favorite EDH Generals. Perhaps I'll look into adding him in.

Polukranos, World Eater is cool, but I generally never have a ton of mana to spare for his ability.

Thanks again!

Sir, +1 for the amazing, superd and fantastic Consumptive Goo! People keep telling me to cut it from my deck, but they just dont get it..

Anyways, perhaps you would enjoy Polukranos, World Eater and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa for their synergy with your deck. Thy can be costly, but fun!

Have a nice day

The fractions and other numbers that appear on certain silver bordered cards don't change the rules of the game. If you're supposed to distribute something you can only make the distribution in whole numbers unless you're somehow specifically being instructed to distribute a number with a non-whole part (activating the Monstrosity ability of The Mimeoplasm exiling Polukranos, World Eater and Bad Ass, for example).

And yes, normal arithmetic starts to break down when you start running infinities up against each other. Also, some of the strategies for and results of trying to perform the operations will be different depending on whether the infinities involved are countable or uncountable, and Infinity Elemental doesn't specify what it means in that respect. MaRo's comments in the FAQAWASLFAQPAFTIDAWABIAJTBT and some official Judge resources I've read suggest that the "official" stance on infinity is that once a value in the game becomes infinity it can't be further changed unless another effect sets it to a specific number.

Generally speaking, no. Just because Silver Border cards are legal doesn't mean all the rules go out the window. Only when a card specifically circumvents or overwrites the rules of the game do those rules not apply. Cards like Polukranos, World Eater are still bound to their rules and rulings despite silver border cards being legal, and from Polukranos' Gatherer Rulings: "The number of targets chosen for the triggered ability must be at least one (if X wasnt 0) and at most X. You choose the division of damage as you put the ability on the stack, not as it resolves. Each target must be assigned at least 1 damage. In multiplayer games, you may choose creatures controlled by different opponents."

Fractions: I monstrosity Polukranos, World Eater X=8. Since Un-set cards are legal in the format, can I distribute a half of a damage to 16 different creatures? (for the purposes of something like Horobi, Death's Wail or Deathtouch)

Irrational numbers: In addition, when Unstable releases, Just Desserts will come out. Does that mean I can assign any fraction or irrational number as damage through Polukranos?

Infinity: Finally, if I use The Mimeoplasm to exile Earl of Squirrel and Infinity Elemental, will I get infinite +1/+1 counters and (if it can deal combat damage to a squirrel) infinite creatures?

Please mark as Casual not Legacy in the format box. also try Polukranos, World Eater, Primeval Titan, and Thrun, the Last Troll.

If this were my deck I would drop Polukranos, World Eater for Elderscale Wurm since polukranos is likely to kill itself and elderscale makes it very hard to lose the match
