Polukranos, World Eater

Legendary Creature — Hydra

: Monstrosity X. (If this creature isn't monstrous, put X +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes monstrous.)

When Polukranos, World Eater becomes monstrous, it deals X damage divided as you choose among any number of target creatures your opponents control. Each of those creatures deals damage equal to its power to Polukranos.

Protection for Ezuri:
Swiftfoot Boots , Mask of Avacyn , Alpha Authority , Swiftfoot Boots , Swiftfoot Boots


Why go big, when you can go infinite?
There's a few combos out there but the most budget one I've seen goes: Elvish Guidance and your Arbor Elf , and Sword of the Paruns plus any three elves you've got. If you've got Ezuri out you can pump your boys silly.



Some board wipe options:
The Great Aurora , Perilous Vault , Nevinyrral's Disk , Setessan Tactics , Wave of Vitriol , Ratchet Bomb , Worldslayer , Polukranos, World Eater (sorry it's not an elf but you'll have the mana for sure). You'd probably only need 2/3.

Some removal options:
Beast Within , Desert Twister , Krosan Grip , Deglamer , Scour from Existence Nature's Claim is a straight upgrade to some cards already in your deck.
These might be better if you don't want something bouncing back to the command zone or something similiar Lignify , Song of the Dryads and there's a new one Kenrith's Transformation in case you want to turn something into an Elk.

More lads:
Drove of Elves , Skyshroud Poacher , Nettle Sentinel

Hi Rossa!

Thank you for your many recommendations!

Asceticism : I considered this a lot, but I prefer auras than enchantments like this, so I can immediately trigger the fight mechanic. Colossal Majesty : Same reason with Asceticism; plus, when I cast this on turn 2 or 3, this most probably will do nothing for me. I have a lot of ways to draw cards. But I really did consider this when making the deck.

About the creatures, I initially had Polukranos, World Eater here but then I cut it as its too much too activate, I could just remove creatures using the fight mechanic on the commander. As for Chameleon Colossus , Whiptongue Hydra , and Phyrexian Hydra (he's not ugly lol, I love me my infect creatures :) ); I used to run this along with Polukranos when the deck started out as kinda tribal hydra / enchantress. Having decided to focus on the enchantment route, all I needed to do was to put out Gargos asap and kill creatures (through auras) and attack. But I am thinking of maybe cutting Karametra's Acolyte and/or Primordial Hydra for Whiptongue and Phyhrexian Hydra. (Thanks for reminding me about these two!)

Traverse the Outlands is something I overlooked, having 5 cmc I will have to think about it still.

Thanks for your recommendations, I really appreciate it! :)

Hello! I really like this idea to boost up this commander with enchantments. I just created a deck for the same commander, but I selected Instants instead of Enchantments. Enchantments have better support in Green, but Instant are more powerful without any support. However this Green Enchantment deck has a really unique atmosphere, so thank you for building it. Some (obvious) ideas which might worth consideration: Ramp Traverse the Outlands , always good creature it can be a wincon and hydra as well Chameleon Colossus , good removal creature Polukranos, World Eater , best protection in Green Asceticism , good card drawer Colossal Majesty , and the best flying creature removal Whiptongue Hydra and finally an ugly creature which is a hydra and a potential wincon Phyrexian Hydra . I hope you can use some of these cards. :-)

Hello. Context, I play cEDH artifact combo, so I know how to Dismember it.

I know that the deck hates artifacts, but I might still run Null Rod as backup for Ouphe, as well as Sphere of Resistance or Damping Sphere (which brutally shut down a lot of cEDH-style lists). I'm surprised there's no Bane of Progress here. Beyond that, Force of Vigor , Pulverize , Vandalblast , and By Force can do good work in this sort of list :)

My first cuts would be Polukranos, World Eater and Sagu Mauler , I'd say. With Animar, you have access to a lot of good combos, such as Ancestral Statue -- why not include that, to instantly kick Animar to infinite power and start swinging with your commander as a wincon? A friend of mine has a Voltron Animar list that might help you find an unorthodox wincon:

It works even with other cards like Polukranos, World Eater

Firstly Pernicious Deed is not modern legal, secondly three Lazotep Plating feels bad, especially in the mainboard, I would move at least one to the sideboard in exchange for more removal, and maybe another one for the third stubborn denial. I don't like Kalonian Hydra because it feels win more and would remove at least two from the deck, in its place I would add either a Mistcutter Hydra if your meta has a lot of control decks, or Polukranos, World Eater if your meta has a lot of creature based decks. It is a cool deck that definitely needs tuning, though I like going into BUG colors rather than Gruul, as it gives you more interaction, I would run with that idea of interaction. Hope I've helped.

Thanks Lame_Duck I actually have 2 Polukranos, World Eater On the way along with another Primordial Hydra but good call on removing Managorger Hydra I realize it really doesn’t do any good for me because I’m looking for huge hydras without waiting for them to grow. Genesis Hydra does make a good tutor for when I go infinite (to find a Kalonian Hydra or a Hydra Broodmaster ) but I suppose I really don’t need two of them. I’m thinking about adding 2 Walking Ballista for another infinite win con. Definitely going to add more Hydra Broodmaster and 2 more Kalonian Hydra . Thanks for the suggestions! Happy tapping!
