Polymorph Discussion

Funkydiscogod on 1 is enought

You should include some Lazotep Plating to prevent an opponent from removing the token you're trying to Polymorph . It can also make a creature token with hexproof until end of turn.

MurderForBrunch on Oath of Show and Heart! Temur Combo Control

Oh! Right, it is sacrifice. Still, this deck does not have any proper reanimation because it doesn’t have either white or black. The reason it works in Legacy I believe it’s because of the consistency of 60 cards plus the 1v1 nature of the format. Without reanimation Sneak Attack I don’t believe it’s that good in commander.

On the other hand, Divergent Transformations is a really cool card, but as you say it needs tokens, which is a total nombo with Oath of Druids . There’s a different Temur deck with Polymorph and Proteus Staff that super wants that card. That is possibly a variation of this deck that I might try put together. It also looks really fun! :D

Simic Keyrune only works with Polymorph , and not Indomitable Creativity .

Not Thraben Inspector , because it's a creature, it can be revealed by either Polymorph or Indomitable Creativity , and you won't get Emrakul.

Another way to prevent your opponent to just remove your token in response to Polymorph is to use Simic Keyrune . Its one of few polymorph targets that has hexproof. It can pay for its own activating cost essentially making it cost 1 to turn into a creature.

Thraben Inspector could also be something to consider, as you can polymorph the clue token

Instead of Sprout (or maybe Remand ), you could use Lazotep Plating as a way to create the creature token you need. Its better because the token gains hexproof as you cast it, meaning the opponent will have to wait until the current turn ends before having the opportunity to Fatal Push it. If you have 6 mana, you can create the token and Polymorph it on the same turn.

The problem with Polymorph is that your opponent can Lightning Bolt your token in response to counter it. Simic Keyrune fixes this as its the only Polymorph target with hexproof. Raise the Alarm is an instant speed Dragon Fodder , and would make you less dependent on red mana.

Ok, so this thread kinda blew up more than I expected, so forgive me for the monster text.

To avoid a massive wall of text, I will divide my responses in spoiler blocks to ease the view.

jaymc1130 on See That 1/1? That's Actually Blightsteel Colossus

Honestly, if you want to tune this deck to maximum potential, you should cut all the creatures that aren't Blightsteel and just rely on token generating cards to provide the fodder and add in literal Polymorph as well as Proteus Staff as additional non commander ways to engage your combo in the event your commander is being hated by removal or something like a Pithing Needle.
