I've always loved polymorph... it's just one of those dramatic, slightly-risky effects. Unfortunately, in order to really get max value from a polymorph effect, you've got to heavily warp your deck, so that every 'hit' is a bomb.

But what if there was a way to get multiple shots at something cool?

What if lots of things entered the battlefield?!

What if alligators!?


"Chaos Red" is a pretty established fun archetype in commander, and I think this will slot in perfectly, but I think a lot of other decks can use this too. Combine it with some indestructibility (always good anyway), some 187 creatures, some sacrifice-triggers, and get the party started!

Do sac outlets do much with this, since the polymorph effect will only trigger on upkeep? That said, I think this could be interesting in UR with Paradox Haze, BR with Volrath's Stronghold and RGW with Wheel of Sun and Moon.

Neat card, but I'm annoyed that it's yet another mono-red Polymorph variant that doesn't work with Zada, Hedron Grinder. Just give me mono-red Polymorph already!
