Biomass Mutation Discussion

If your going to play Eerie Ultimatum play more self mill, this will also have better synergy with the commander
You don't draw enough cards either - Bonders' Enclave - Tatyova, Benthic Druid - any of the modern horizons cycling lands - Splendid Reclamation (sortof) - Mystic Remora - Rhystic Study - Omen of the Sea - Brainstorm - Nissa, Vital Force - Elemental Bond

I'd give more consideration to Scale Up and Become Immense as big p/t increases are the driving force in infect. Also Blight Mamba is fun sb texch. Proliferate and counters are a solid idea, but with green leaning into things like Increasing Savagery rather than the white counters on all creatures, I'd be trying to Proliferate Servant of the Scale or abuse Wildcall for surprise Glistener.
I've had some success with Biomass Mutation, but once more it's still pretty inefficient.
Good luck with the brew, budget infect is more scary for people facing it down in fnm cause its just as explosive but less predictable than regular infect.

If your looking for cuts then here's my 8 recommendations:
Capricopian Flavor win but it often won't hit the opponent you want to hit.
Deepglow Skate One shot effect you don't need.
Gargos, Vicious Watcher Great card. However, you running 9 other hydras (excluding your commander who doesn't really benefit). Also, you don't have many self-targeting effects. Not enough support to keep.
Manascape Refractor If you have more land tutors to copy nykthos or coffers maybe keep but otherwise cut. It also comes in tapped which hurts.
Vorel of the Hull Clade If you have infinite mana or just a ton of mana then his affect is nice but not needed.
Biomass Mutation If you get infinite mana then this is great. Yet, if you have infinite mana you should also be able to win with something else or just start making infinitely large Hydras.
Winding Constrictor Incrementally helps. This seems like a harder cut but your hydra's should be big enough on their own without the 1 extra counter.
Hope that helps. I get it with the tutors. I personally don't like running a bunch of tutors in EDH and even more so dislike the idea of spending a ton of cash on them. But, they do make things more consistent and faster (which I thought was more of a goal due to description) so I recommended them.
Cutting sucks, especially when your down to the last few cards. I don't know your play style or play group so take the cuts recs with a grain of salt.
Best of luck. I like the how the deck looks so far and it should be fun to play no matter what ends up being cut.

Hey, I'm currently playing Kalamax, the Stormsire using a secondary token strategy.
You could play a main token strategy with Kalamax and The Locust God. Kalamax can act as a pseudo Parallel Lives affect with instant spells that create token since if he's tapped the first instant you cast each turn is copied. Many cards can repeatably for no mana cost create a token when you cast an instant or sorcery and you want to be casting instants with Kalamax. Instant draw spells are good with Kalamax. The doubling of draw is good with The Locust God who creates an Insect token when you draw a card. In my opinion getting token value on top of the value you already get from instants with Kalamax could make this a viable main strategy.
Some cards for a creature token strategy with Kalamax:
- The Locust God
- Young Pyromancer
- Saheeli, Sublime Artificer
- Murmuring Mystic
- Metallurgic Summonings
- Chord of Calling
- Parallel Lives
- Cryptolith Rite
- Beastmaster Ascension
- Bident of Thassa
- Hunter's Insight
- Return of the Wildspeaker
- Pull from Tomorrow
- Sprout Swarm
- Artifact Mutation
- Curious Herd
- Scatter the Seeds
- Fated Intervention
- Hunting Pack
- Second Harvest
- Cackling Counterpart
- Supplant Form
- Empty the Warrens
- Rite of Replication
- Mythos of Illuna

I'm definitely trying to find a direction for this. I took out Biomass Mutation mainly because it only affects power and toughness and doesn't help in any other way. I know there are those out there running End-Raze Forerunners to provide an explosive attack turn w/ Finale of Devastation, leaving blockers after, but I already have a ton of green mana symbols among cards I'm running. I'm concerned there is too much reliance on green and I don't want to be stuck.
Is Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner a must-run?

Thanks Paeldroth. I haven't had time to decipher the new decks yet apart from Zaxara (heh), the other core generals/legendaries and the 'free' spell cycle (those look awesome btw). I'll need to tuck in and investigate, but those 2 cards you listed are interesting.
I keep going back and forth on Biomass Mutation but I should probably test it as it's certainly on theme. Really wish it granted trample too, greedy!

I love the discourse on this! Kindred Discovery looks amazing in this.
I'd encourage you to look hard at the new cards in Commander 2020 for some extra oomph. Species Specialist allows you to draw cards off of Hydras kicking the bucket (could be a nice card draw engine from Greater Good), Cazur, Ruthless Stalker Flip pumps your Hydras up for each successful combat hit to a player (also boosting Simic Ascendancy).
Also, Biomass Mutation just looks rude for this.

Thanks. Walking Ballista is good for infinite mana, but this deck just has a lot of mana, not infinite (unless I'm missing something!). Finale of Devastation is great and might work better, but since there isn't any Craterhoof Behemoth or similar big creature to tutor for, something like Biomass Mutation is actually better because it can be used at instant speed, after blocks.
