Polukranos, Worldeater

    What if instead of using counters as heads, it uses Head tokens instead (like the "Fight the Hydra" deck for the Hero's Path thing)?

    GG2

    Trample, Devour 2

    For each 1 damage that would be dealt to ~, if it has a +1/+1 counter on it, remove a +1/+1 counter from it and prevent that 1 damage.

    When ~ dies, put X X/X Hydra tokens onto the battlefield, where X is the number of +1/+1 counters on ~.

    4/4

    I can't believe anyone is excited about this card. It is absolutely unplayable. I wouldn't even play her in LIMITED. Easily the worst walker printed since the green elf one. Absolutely terrible.

    Most Hydras have X in their cost or start underpowered, so I'd say it etb with 3 counters, also it probably has trample. Worldeater sounds like destroying lands, but there are many ways to use that:
    -Sacrifice a land: Put X +1/+1 counters on ~
    -Whenever ~ deals combat damage, destroy target land, then put X +1/+1 counters on ~
    -At the beginning of your upkeep, each player sacrifices a land, then you double the +1/+1 counters on ~

    EDIT: Just saw the first 5 minutes of the San Diego Comic Con Panel. Apparently Polukranos is quite strong and showing up in a lot of decks, hmm...

    Maybe we'll see "Runes" as a new type of enchantments Nodding the Affirmative
    Kiora for Born of the Gods, maybe?

    I'm going deep guys.

    4GG

    Sacrifice a land: put two +1/+1 counters on Polunkranos, and Polunkranos gains trample until end of turn.

    Whenever Polunkranos deals combat damage to a player, that player sacrifices a land and you may search your library for a basic land and put it into play tapped.

    5/6

    Sure is a nice Library you got there.. be a shame if something were to happen to it...

    Unlikely, since we know he costs 2GG. But I could actually see somthing similiar on a smaller creature. Maybe just one counter?

    Too powerful. If I'm not mistaken, didn't they spoil the mana cost as 2GG? I could be totally wrong on that so just say so if that's the case :p

    I think a 4 mana creature with tap: exile target noncreature permanent would be absolutely busted.

    EDIT
    On the first page it shows 2GG for mana cost, so I'm assuming that's what it costs.

    World Eater made me think of terravore. Maybe something like:

    trample
    ~ has power and toughness equal to (2?) + the number of land cards in all in graveyards.
    Destroy a (noncreature) permanent whenever ~ deals combat damage.


    Worldslayer destroyed more than just lands so this guy could as well.

    Novablast Wurm comes to mind.

    Being multi-headed will have an effect, and being a hydra most likely means +1/+1 counters.

    I like this though it may or maynot be broken.

    2GG

    Trample

    Whenever Polu comes into play, destroy target non-creature permanent.

    Polukranos enters the battlefield with 3 +1/+1 Counters on it.

    Whenever a land is put into a graveyard from play put 2 +1/+1 counters on him

    Sacrifice a land - Regenerate Polu

    Polukranos, Worldeater :2mana::symg::symg:
    Creature
    Feed. (Sacrifice target permanent you control, put a +1/+1 counter on Polukranos, Worldeater)
    If Polukranos has 3 or more +1/+1 counters on it, it gains trample.
    If Polukranos, Worldeater has 6 or more +1/+1 counters on it, it gains indestructible.
    (3/3)

    Now act of treason and crucible of worlds will be awesome again.

    If Worldeater Neonate has 1 or more +1/+1 counters on it, it gains hexproof

    I want a busted, high risk/high reward type creature. One that either will win on the spot or kill you in a blaze of glory:

    Polukranos, Worldeater
    2GG

    Trample

    When Polukranos ETB, exile all permanents you control. Put a +1/+1 counter on Polukranos for each non-land card exiled this way.

    Whenever you play a permanent, remove a +1/+1 counter.

    If Polukranos leaves the battlefield or dies, it deals damage to you equal to its power.

    8/8


    The last ability at least keeps blinking shennanigans in check. And having it Doom Bladed after exiling your field AND causing you to loose life? Blaze of Glory self-death fulfilled.
