While I do like the 4 Polukranos, World Eater main I'm gonna try the extra Genesis Hydra and the combat trick with Bow of Nylea is really cool I also enjoy the Nylea, God of the Hunt trample. and The whole reason Drown in Sorrow is side is against rabble decks which are fairly common around me.
I'm going to suggest Bow of Nylea . Deathtouch with tokens is brutal. And of course the second activated ability is insane with Omnath.
it's cool. Necropolis Regent , Savage Summoning , Ordeal of Nylea , Bow of Nylea , Increasing Savagery , Hardened Scales were other cards i felt looked good with Hooded Hydra or more specifically creatures with +1/+1 counters.
My vote goes to reaper. I'm not going to say it's better than rhinos in every deck, but I think it's very underplayed. Obviously both cards have their advantages.
Reaper of the Wilds has synergy with cards like Nylea, God of the Hunt , is much better in the late game, easier to cast, and the scrying is huge! Especially with a board wipe! Destroy the field, and then scry to your next threat.
Also, considering the meta, I think reaper is much better for mid-slow speed decks. Not to mention that reaper Kills rhinos in combat, and still lives.
Even if you're set on using the pro tour winning rhinos for your abzan deck, I would atleast suggest sideboarding reaper for the inevitable mirror match.
If you're playin against a deck with boardwipes, your best defense against boardwipes is to simply use one or at most two cards to maintain pressure on them. Never empty your hand on the board unnecessarily, that's called overextending. Play a Polukranos, make them kill it before playing another threat. If they just played a boardwipe, play a card that creates multiple bodies (like hornet queen). Playing Xenagos or Nylea when you already have creatures out is good since they're not affected by wraths (unless it's Perilous Vault ). Even if you just have a Courser or Elvish Mystic in play, it's better to use Bow of Nylea to put counters on it than to play a bunch of other creatures (if you thi k he has the boardwipe). And just because he doesn't have the wipe now, he might have it the next turn. Overextending is very risky.
I agree with that. In the matchups where it would be necessary, by the time I would need Back to Nature I should likely have more on board than Courser of Kruphix and if that's not the case I'm probably losing anyway. Between the Coursers and my singleton mainboard Bow of Nylea I only have a total of four non-indestructible enchantments in the deck so I think it's a solid theory and have already made the changes without any testing. FNM tonight should be an interesting indicator of whether I've made the right decisions and if not I suppose it's back to the drawing board.
Also I'd want to see Arbor Colossus somewhere in here if you are keeping Nylea, God of the Hunt or adding in Xenagos, God of Revels . He is a great devotion engine and can kill Wingmate Roc and Stormbreath Dragon
Thank's for all your help Goody !here's the numbers on the other cards you mentioned. Any I left out I don't have: 2x Rattleclaw Mystic , 1x Hornet Nest , 1x Chord of Calling and 1x Bow of Nylea . Just one Thing i have against Moving the Magma Jet to side board is that I like the scry to fix any top decking issues. I'll move it now for play testing reasons and see once I'd played a couple of matches with the missus.
