Aspect of Hydra Discussion

If this deck is meant to be competitive, I would streamline it a bit better. Currently it is all over the place. If you want to play devotion, you need to a)have your mana costs be greener, and b)actually have a payoff. Aspect of Hydra is awesome for closing out a game, Rancor is great for going over your opponents creatures, and it is 1 for {G}, a better ratio for devotion than most of your cards. IMO you should drop Abundant Growth and use Wx shocklands, or switch to a mono-G wincon. Hope this was helpful.

"which", not "witch". also, fetchlands don't belong in mono color decks. the loss of life is not worth the "deck thinning". the deck thinning effect is so minimal its practically nonexistent.

let me put it this way. lets say you're on turn 4, about to play your 4th land drop. so you've got 17 lands left in your deck, out of 50. that gives you a 34% chance of drawing a land turn 5. but if that 4th land is a fetch, you go down to 16 lands out of 49 cards left in the deck. thats a 32.6% chance of drawing a land turn 5. so basically, you've just increased your chances of drawing a spell by a whopping 1.4%. thats just not worth the 1 life you paid.

"include", not "inclued". Dryad Militant is the next best 1-drop after Experiment One, so you should max that and cut the Narnam Renegade.

while i can agree that Collected Company doesn't really go in mono G stompy, your reasoning is wrong. a deck thats actually "meant" to use Collected Company rarely gets bad reveals from it. there will usually be very few other noncreatures spells alongside it.

as for Revenge of the Hunted, i probably wouldn't use that either simply due to lack of space, but i just want to point out that if its in your opening hand, you can simply mulligan.

Dungrove Elder may seem nice because it can get "bigger" and has hexproof, but with only 21 lands, on average it will be a 3/3 in more games than it will be a 4/4, and rarely go higher than that. a Steel Leaf Champion is bigger for the same cost, and raises devotion for Aspect of Hydra.

Untamed Might and Aspect of Hydra both work incredibly well in this deck and with Overwhelming Stampede

Crow_Storm: In some situations, that is true, but Kalonian Tusker has upsides. First, Kalonian Tusker has higher P/T as a two drop, and Scavenging Ooze Obviously can grow bigger, but that requires mana and creatures in graveyards. This means on turn three (assuming you played them on turn two as two-drops), Kalonian Tusker attacks more reliably as a 3/3, and also allows you to play a three-drop on turn three. Kalonian Tusker also provides more devotion for Aspect of Hydra. Scavenging Ooze is great out of the sideboard against decks like Hollow One or any other graveyard deck that naturally provides fuel for Scavenging Ooze, but the reliability provided by Kalonian Tusker makes it a more effective cards to main board.

Dr_Pleco You are correct about Kessig Prowler  Flip being better in certain metas, and you could even run a split between those and Dryad Militant if you felt like it was better suited. Now for the breakdown of everything else: Reverent Hunter could pack a lot of power, but when you look at it, its max potential in this deck for turn three is a 5/5. Just looking at its turn three play potential, Steel Leaf Champion is much better, as it provides a form of evasion that matters more often than you might think, and provides better devotion for your Aspect of Hydra. Reverent Hunter can come down on turn four being huge, but than it has to survive to your next turn with no protection (you may have Vines of Vastwood, but I mean on the creature itself.) without getting killed by Fatal Push or Path to Exile or other various removal spells. Could be very strong, could be mediocre. Thrashing Brontodon seems alright, but it doesn't perform to much above curve. Power matters more than toughness for this deck, so it doesn't check well there, and if you want to use it as an artifact/enchantment removal spell you have to either wait till you get four mana, or risk having it killed before you untap. Prowling Serpopard could be good, but counterspells aren't excessive in the current meta, and the other available three drops perform much better. Thanks for the suggestions!

Your 5-drop enchantments are good, but a Spell Pierce would ruin your day. Hardened Scales and Metallic Mimic can help get hydras bigger and are solid early plays. In Modern a lot of decks are winning by Turn 4-5, and so Doubling Season for example is kinda clunky as it takes all your mana to cast and doesnt do anything until you are able to resolve a Hydra or Planeswalker the following turn. Mistcutter in the side is obviously great against decks but the haste also makes it a decent early play too. Plus the creature count, hydras particularly, is kinda low for a creature-based strategy and you dont wanna end up with a hand full of lands and enchantments. Id probably drop Alpha Auth all together (sets up a sweeper 2-for-1) and go to 2 copies Doubling. I like things like Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense better as you get them to waste a removal spell, much harder to play around and allows leaving up to bluff. Sweepers can foil your plan, maybe Heroic Intervention could help hedge.

Ive always been a fan of Polukranos, World Eater, a 5/5 on Turn 3 is pretty solid and later it can be used as removal/mana dump.

Cavern of Souls is helpful if you have a lot of blue decks in your meta. Birds of Paradise is ok but in mono-green something like Llanowar Elves or Arbor Elf might be just as good but can also chump block and potentially kill something small. Aspect of Hydra is another thing to consider, especially with things with trample or haste. Only other thing I can think of is Surrak, the Hunt Caller to give your following turns Kalonian Hydra haste.

Looks good, keep up the tweaking +1

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Aspect of Hydra are the reasons to be green devotion. Also Predator Ooze could be better than Leatherback Baloth

It's too slow. The problem is, modern is OP! You will play against turn 1 hollow one and burn deck and so many other turn 2 win cons

Vengevine is actually better then Groundbreaker i might look into that tho

there is only 3 Steel Leaf Champion because the fourth is Dungrove Elder ... its swapable but i dont suggest it you need one of these bad boy

in order to use these changes if you want them i would use 4 Aspect of Hydra and play more on the devotion side of thing. dropping Dungrove Elder - Blossoming Defense. You could take out Melira, Sylvok Outcast if you dont run around infect decks.
