Apocalypse Hydra Discussion
2 weeks ago
OK first I want to point out the exclusions, cards I don't think fit
Borborygmos Enraged, he isn't a very good card unless you build around him. If you build around him a lil bit you will need cards like Snake Umbra, Keen Sense, and cards to combo with that like Skyship Weatherlight or Abundance to combo off so you draw lands over and over again. Otherwise he is over costed and not very good.
Majestic Myriarch is not a very strong card because of its huge downside. The card needs a team of creatures with him or her to be good. If your gonna keep this card you'll need to build a bit of a token deck to make it worth keeping. With cards like. Dragonlair Spider, Wolfcaller's Howl, Wolfbriar Elemental, Verdant Force, Tempt with Vengeance, Symbiotic Wurm, Sylvan Offering, Hornet Queen, Feed the Pack, Dragon Broodmother, Artifact Mutation, Arachnogenesis, and Ant Queen. These are also all good card suggestions.
Gruul Signet, Gruul Keyrune, and Darksteel Ingot I'd take out for land ramp. The kinds that add them to your hand and or play. Cards like Kodama's Reach (you have in the deck all ready). Seek the Horizon, Journey of Discovery you also might like Harvest Season, Evolution Charm is great too.

Since you only have red for your Apocalypse Hydra, you could take it out and the mountains and instead play Walking Ballista. It's a bit more expensive, but worth it since you can ping stuff down and funnel your leftover mana into it's pump ability. Other than that i would take out the Howling Mine(s). It's a good card, but you help your opponent more than yourself, and since the meta-game is control and tron, they want the extra card. Other than that it looks really cool, keep up the good work!

with the Prophetic Prism, you have many more ways to go with it then just with a mana producer. for example, the Worn Powerstone can do quite well at giving you more mana to work with, but it enters tapped making it so the mana cant be used as soon as it enters. next, theres the problem with needing and as soon as possible. if you get a hand with only islands, the Prism is good at filtering into red. lastly, when using the Retraction Helix combo, you will be drawing cards every time you play it. this gives you a large advantage when you can draw your entire deck and play everything since you will be able to filter the mana into certain colors. you could possibly add in 1 of Blaze as a second win con.
you may even go as far as to use the Prophetic Prism as a way to play cards out of your main colors. possibly a 1 of Approach of the Second Sun. this is a win con, and with the prism drawing you cards, you can continue to draw until you draw into it again, then all this infinite mana can be used for something. or possibly you may add in a large creature no one would suspect thats in a different color. maybe even Apocalypse Hydra. i bet your play group would be surprised seeing this come out with over 30 counters on it, just to see it ping them for 1 damage over and over.
anyways, this is just my opinion on this. sorry for any rambling or parts where its confusing to read. i love the Aetherflux Reservoir so i'm gonna try what i cna to help haha

Hey there Andrewctf5, thanks for the suggestions sapofeo! I actually really like the idea of Primordial Hydra as an early blocker that can grow pretty fast, I'll have to try it out. My worry with Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker is that the cost would make them a little bit to slow. Casting Apocalypse Hydra or Mistcutter Hydra for 8 mana gives us a huge creature, but 8 mana for a 4/4 seems weak in comparison especially since Apocalypse Hydra still has the ping ability, it just requires mana to activate.
musicman3310, that's an interesting take on the deck, I'm glad other people have come up with similar decks to this one because it's a lot of fun to play in a casual setting. That being said I think one thing that deck is missing is Neheb, the Worthy. In the playtesting I have done so far, he's the real MVP of the deck, even more so than Rosheen Meanderer especially when paired with a Lightning Bolt, a hasty Mistcutter Hydra, or even a Nissa, Steward of Elements ultimate.

Neat. Focus more on the colorless mana? How about Rosheen Meanderer with Savageborn Hydra, Genesis Hydra, and Apocalypse Hydra. Anything with X in its cost. Also, Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread. Most importantly, however, Temur Ascendancy and Garruk's Packleader and Elemental Bond.

I know every other Rosheen deck out there utilizes Hydras (as is mine), but for a reason. You should try to implement atleast a few powerful ones to have variety in finishers through combat damage!
- Polukranos, World Eater another powerful sweeper.
- Primordial Hydra is just nuts.
- Savageborn Hydra is almost as nuts as the above.
- Apocalypse Hydra can ping anything annoying away.
It's different and nice anyway, I like it!
