Polymorph

Destroy target creature. It can't be regenerated. Its controller reveals cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. The player puts that card onto the battlefield, then shuffles all other cards revealed this way into his or her library.

lagotripha,

I really like Marrow Shards. I forgot about Darksteel Mutation as well because it is an enchantment, but both would fit in sideboard as options.

I have been considering Crovax, Ascendant Hero as an Elesh Norn Lite, and Requiem Angel since I could Secure the Wastes a bunch of chump blockers that would trade and become retaliating flyers. I think those would make solid mid game finishers for slightly less mana than Norn. I didn't want too many actual creatures in the main so that I had access to as many stall tactics as possible and to keep the ridiculous polymorph theme.

As I type this I just found a few ridiculous cards that really make this viable since it would get me to my few creatures fast and cheap... wow, can't believe I overlooked all of these...

Polymorph would turn one of my own tokens into either Elish Norn, Godhead, or Archetype of Courage. That's nuts. And that art? Are you kidding, so much lol. Totally mainboard worthy.

Mass Polymorph is absolutely going in sideboard where I can put exactly five creatures in the deck and then after playing Increasing Devotion on turn five I can play Mass Poly on six and have my end-game board automatically.

I overlooked Jalira, Master Polymorphist originally because it wouldn't let me get to Elish Norn, but now I'm seeing things differently and could make a case for her in the sideboard.

Thank you for spinning the gears again, I'm looking at this under a whole new light and now I'm even more excited to try it :)

Thanks for having a look and supporting the idea.

It is important to note that Polymorph neither exiles nor allows you to search. It attempts to destroy the creature and then the creatures controller reveals card until they reveal a creature. This is important because indestructible can save the creature, and you don't get t choose the creature you get.

Also, nothing you mentioned would exile the creature, Polymorph destroys, not exiles. To link cards type them in double brackets:

[[Willbreaker]]

Yes, you would be the controller of that creature when it is destroyed.

Cast Polymorph, it targets opponent creature, and Polymorph's effect goes on the stack.

Triggered ability of Willbreaker goes on the stack, above Polymorph, and resolves, giving you control of the target creature.

Polymorph resolves, with you being the controller of the creature.

Yes, that is exactly how it would happen. The ability of Willbreaker will be put on the stack and resolve before Polymorph. Since you are now the controller of the creature, hte creature is destroyed and you search your library for a replacement.
