Extinction Event Discussion
20 hours ago
No, Damnation is a stretch in its omnicidal globalism. usually leaves some sort of out, from Extinction Event only affecting half the casting costs in the game, to Languish not affecting anything large enough. But it's not a bad card at all.

change made to this. I made the mana base better. This is something I'm not very good at. I'm from a time when mana fixed it'self...
I am also running Extinction Event now because I like that it only costs 1 black so I don't get stuck not being able to wipe the board early. I have also been seeing a lot of graveyard shenanigans and it's nice to have something to address that. I plan to keep tinkering with the wipes to see which combination works best.
The other change is that I've replaced Brokkos, Apex of Forever with Clackbridge Troll and removed the accompanying island. I was missing the life gain after I canned the Leyline Prowler so I get that back + some card draw and I still get to keep a big-bodied beater. It also prevents me from drawing that island in my opening hand which was causing occasional trouble.

Add your Phyrexian Arena
Mirror Entity can be used against you so be careful in commander with it, but you should be fine with it.

MrBoombastic Thanks! i have to agree with your observations. Mythos of Brokkos has been on the bubble for me a long with Unlikely Aid. I could see shifting to more white since I need it early for Mythos of Nethroi so I think I'll make the change to Elspeth Conquers Death which is certainly a card I love.
The only thing about Extinction Event is that my creatures wont actually "die" so it won't trigger Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Garruk, Cursed Huntsman's abilities. Otherwise I would be running it. I do very much love Leyline Prowler but I'll tinker and playtest with Paradise Druid and see if I like her better.
Thanks for trying it out! and Thanks for the feedback!

I took your deck for a spin (around 15 games of Bo1) on Arena and have a few notes:
Mythos of Nethroi is a joy to cast on just about anything.
Polukranos, Unchained was good at doing zombie hydra things - stopping too much aggression and being recursive removal.
What didn't work
The mana base is very rough - with the amount of dual color cards (in different colors) I'd at least add some Triomes.
The average CMC is high, so I'd up the land count. Found myself sitting on gas without the mana to play it a little too often.
The mix of early creatures and board wipes didn't compliment each other too well.
Mythos of Brokkos felt too slow and clunky. I mostly wanted to have the mana to both get something out of the yard AND play it that same turn. Tapping 4 for no immediate effect hurts against many decks. I know it's also meant for tutoring, but that's a steep cost for the effect and there's only 1x Island to do it. Something like Elspeth Conquers Death seems more impactful and fills the same role of recursing your big threats.
Unlikely Aid didn't do much. There are plenty of better options and you shouldn't be in need of protection for your creatures. Keep the board clean and then go to town with your big beaters. It's a control deck after all ^^
About Chevill, Bane of Monsters. You only have 2 mutate creatures, so that wouldn't be his forte, even if he wasn't a human. He brings some early game value, as pointed out by Budabuda123, and his deathtouch makes for awkward attacks from the opp. Adding him would make your board wipes worse though.
Hope that helps. Good luck with the deck!
