Apocalypse Hydra Discussion

PootyHutchins on Green/Black Hydra Heavy Hitter

My buddy used to run a hydra deck way back in the day, so I can recommend you a few good cards, but I'm not too sure if you're on a budget or not.

Kalonian Hydra is an absolute monster in hydra decks and is usually a must deal with creature, also Primordial Hydra + Kalonian Hydra is a terrifying combo. His deck also used to do a lot of mana ramp so he'd run cards like Elvish Mystic and Sylvan Caryatid to help him get bigger creatures out sooner and pump up his creatures that have an X casting cost to them. Polukranos, World Eater is another pretty good and decently cheap one he ran, as well as Hydra Broodmaster.

If you don't mind splashing red, Xenagos, the Reveler is another card he ran that helped pump up his creatures and ramp even more quickly, and if you do decide to splash red you can run Apocalypse Hydra as well.

Lastly you should also try and cut your deck down to 60 cards. It makes your pulls much more consistent.

Alternatively you can also make this Rosheen Meanderer and still keep it monogreen or splash red, while also gaining access to some of the gruul hydras like Apocalypse Hydra among other things.

Garruk's Horde is pretty great; since your decklist is so creature-heavy, you can just chain lots of valuable cards off the top of your deck. It's also a powerful 7/7 trampler, which is nice.

Apocalypse Hydra gives you a place to sink your gigantic mana pool, and then you can use it to wipe out swaths of token armies.

Genesis Hydra is another gigantic X creature that also gives you extra value.

Mina and Denn, Wildborn gives you the additional ramp you need in Gruul colors, and giving a big creature trample can be useful.

Signal the Clans is a superb Gruul EDH card; can't decide which of three epic creatures you want to tutor for? It doesn't matter!

Rubblehulk is an incredibly powerful pump tool that also doesn't count as a spell, so you can flip Ulrich at the end of the turn.

Atarka, World Render and Dragonlord Atarka are two gigantic Dragons that have the ability to fly, which is rare in Gruul colors.

Clan Defiance is removal and direct damage rolled into a single spell; very powerful, shouldn't be overlooked.

Gruul Ragebeast is one of the best repeatable removal options you have in your colors.

Mage Slayer is a powerful equipment you can put on any gigantic creature for double direct value when attacking.

In general, any creatures with the bloodrush ability from Gatecrash and Dragon's Maze have great synergy with flipping your Commander; activated abilities don't cast as spells, but you're still getting pump and value.

Still tuning, changed some for anti control options, also ditched Omnath because the power/toughness for mana wasn't good enough to make a big swing with xenagos and the deck was lacking early game,his landfall ability was irrelevant in the games (with this deck).

Out :

Caller of the Claw , Apocalypse Hydra , Archetype of Aggression , Primordial Sage , Omnath, Locus of Rage

In :

Vexing Shusher , Stonehoof Chieftain , Spellbreaker Behemoth , Deus of Calamity , Managorger Hydra

Remember to link all cards in your question with double brackets

Doubling Season
Liliana, the Last Hope (for an example of a walker)

Whenever a permanent enters the battlefield with some kind of counter on it, the counters are being places on it and will be affected by relevant replacement effects. For example, an Apocalypse Hydra would enter with double the +1/+1 counters with a Primal Vigor on the field.

Since Doubling Season affects all counters, including loyalty counters, planeswalkers will enter the battlefield with twice as many as printed on the card if Doubling Season is on the field.
