Polukranos, World Eater Discussion

Mooncalf1988 on Big, Fat and Roaring

You should consider Surrak, the Hunt Caller he reduces Ghalta's cost by 5 and gives her haste the turn she comes into play. Polukranos, World Eater also gives you a high power for low cost creature who can wipe all your opponents creatures if you can make infinite mana.

Since you have a fair amount of elves, Priest of Titania would be a good addition, along with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds who does a lot of work with Ghalta.

A combo you could run is Great Oak Guardian, Temur Sabertooth with any creature that makes a bunch of mana to go infinite.

Thrashing Brontodon for artifact/enchantment removal on decent sizable body?

Seems like the perfect list to include Rhonas the Indomitable in. Makes for a sweet early drop that still contributes to Ghalta's cost reduction even if you don't have another creature with power 4 or greater.

With all your big bois Ulvenwald Tracker makes for some nice, repeatable removal.

Scute Mob seems cute. Don't know how effective it'll actually be, but for a one mana investment it can't be that bad.

Surrak, the Hunt Caller to give Ghalta haste out of nowhere could make for some pretty explosive kills.

Polukranos, World Eater is a decent mana dump and early drop big boi that has a powerfully unique ability for green; killing swarms of dudes.

Might be a little expensive, but Selvala, Heart of the Wilds ramps you for stupid amounts of mana with Gishath out.

In a monogreen list, Nissa's Pilgrimage is often strictly better than either Kodama's Reach or Cultivate.

You might consider playtesting Khalni Hydra to see how often you can windmill slam it down onto the battlefield for low cost or even free.

Ripjaw Raptor is a swole creature for its cost and gives you card advantage in combat should your opponents decide to chump.

Emerald Medallion would probably be nice as a strange kind of ramp for green.

A little better than the previous build of this, but still needs work. I think adding a few Beast Within and Mercy Killing will give you some removal to take care of your opponents threats. (also you can mercy kill one of your own creatures when it's about to die anyway to get a bunch of 1/1 elf tokens) I still think adding 2 Overgrowth will help as well. If your budget allows for it, I'd add at least one Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to your mana base. If you make a sideboard, add a couple Chameleon Colossus to it. Also, Genesis Hydra and Polukranos, World Eater might be pretty decent in here. Primal Command would also help a bit.

I made a deck similar to this, and you can see it here:

Green Elves Ramp: 59 Mana on Turn 4

Modern daNoodalz


Here are my main suggestions: Elvish Archdruid, because it allows you to double the power and toughness of most elves and ramp up for lots of juicy mana. Maybe some Hooded Hydras, Polukranos, World Eater, or Gelatinous Genesis to burn off all that mana. Khalni Hydra can be played early and can do devastating amounts of damage. Great deck, keep up the good work, and hope my suggestions help!

I played against a similar mono-G devotion list a few standard rotations back, and it was beast.

A few suggestions from that experience:

  • Always keep a 2nd Nykthos in-hand to play for turn whenever you you have enough devotion to warrant an activation, but don't have an untap effect in play. It's only dead when you don't have the devotion or mana to activate it early game.

  • You probably want Craterhoof listed in the mainboard along with Chord of Calling. Only play CoCo if you make the list a more traditional elves list, but definitely play Chord.

  • You can go in 2 directions: elf tribal or mono-G devotion/mid-range. Play Heritage Druid and other elves from stock lists to make Chord-for-Craterhoof better if you go in that direction. If you go towards mid-range, back-up your Craterhoof plan with a few Polukranos, World Eater, and use its Monstrous ability with your devotion mana to clear the board.

  • If you go mid-range/devotion, add a few Eidolon of Blossoms and green enchantments and creatures to trigger it like Courser of Kruphix and Boon Satyr in addition to Nylea.

  • Garruk, Caller of Beasts, may be the better Garruk here.

  • Consider adding a few Bow of Nylea and dropping your sorceries (except for Genesis Wave?) to put more permanents and devotion into play.

  • Sideboard a few Mistcutter Hydra, some graveyard hate (Relic of Progenitus) and artifact hate (Reclamation Sage), and maybe a Choke or two.

I think the big choice here is elves or mid-range.

Happy playing!

Dauntless Dourbark and Dungrove Elder might also be fun to test. Splendid Reclamation + Creeping Renaissance might also give you a way to recur massive amounts of land at once after a Crop Rotation without relying on Crucible and Excavator.

Have you ever tested with a Craterhoof Behemoth or other Overrun effect? Or with Nylea, God of the Hunt?

A Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx + Karametra's Acolyte + Voyaging Satyr+ Polukranos, World Eater might also clear out some blockers for you.

Happy brewing!
