Bow of Nylea
Legendary Enchantment Artifact
Attacking creatures you control have deathtouch.
1G, T : Choose one -- Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature; or Bow of Nylea deals 2 damage to target creature with flying; or you gain 3 life; or put up to four target cards from your graveyard on the bottom of your library in any order.

Bow of Nylea Discussion
5 days ago
I'm a fan of Ash Barrens, Forbidden Orchard, Crystal Quarry, and Grand Coliseum. Basilisk Collar and Bow of Nylea seem odd here - hydras are generally large enough that deathtouch doesn't overly matter. Possibly Land Tax? Great for giving you the colors you need. You might also like Defense of the Heart - it's one of the best creature cheaters.

lagotriphaThanks for the helpful comment, many great ideas.
I'll try out the Satyr Hedonist and see how it plays, but the Elvish Mystic may work better. I made some changes using your suggestions, do you think that Hammer of Purphoros and Bow of Nylea are really needed? I like what they do but not sure if they fit.
Thanks again for the advice

Other powerful goodstuffs would be Sakura-Tribe Elder, Xenagos, God of Revels, Tireless Tracker, Elemental Bond, Garruk's Packleader, Wood Elves, Savage Ventmaw, Gruul War Chant, Bow of Nylea, Fierce Empath, Zhur-Taa Druid, Savageborn Hydra, and Spellbreaker Behemoth.

Let me start by adding to your problem by saying that with Umbral Mantle or Staff of Domination you can go infinite pretty easily. Your deck looks like it functions significantly better with yeva or omnath in play. Without them you get to untap your lands on other people's turns but you might not be able to take advantage of that. Just something to be mindful of. Anyways here are some cuts hope this helps:
Nature's Will: My selvala list (i can send you a link if you want but the focus is less on value and more on just achieving an infinite combo quickly) empties its hands pretty quickly and i think you might do the same. After the first trigger or too all this will do is tap down their lands and unless you are playing in a counterspell heavy meta, they can just cast their spells in response to the trigger.
Bow of Nylea: has lot's of abilities but overall not sure if it pulls enough weight.
Stream of Life unless you have lifegain synergies or are in a very VERY aggressive meta straight up life gain spells usually arent great. If the reason you need to cast this is due to your opponents creatures, you would rather draw a card to deal with them rather than a card that buys a turn for you to draw that card.
Predator's Rapport: it's a lot more efficient but the same holds true for this one.
Clockwork Hydra as much as i love this card ((and believe me i do) it's honestly not the best hydra out there. It's pretty slow and inefficient.
Phyrexian Hydra if you get in one hit with him then it dies it will be pretty hard to deal anymore poison damage and did not lower his life total, your main path to victory.
Hooded Hydra you'd much rather have other hydras here. he's better in a token deck rather than one who wants the big body.
Kusari-Gama cool effect but you need to make cuts somewhere and i think you can do without this one.
Bristling Hydra with no other ways to make energy, this isnt worth it
Nissa, Nature's Artisan a lot slower than the other nissas in the deck and doesnt do as much.
Seedtime Only good if your opponents are playing a lot of blue instants. Not all blue decks play counters so this could be a dead card you can't cast. If your meta is heavy blue i'd consider it, otherwise i'd pass.
Sprouting Phytohydra Other than being a hydra, this doesnt do much here. 0 power for five mana does not help selvala make mana

From there, add a little ramp, and make a bunch of tokens, maybe add a little populate for seasoning, and go!

If it were my deck, I might take out Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Verdurous Gearhulk, and Bow of Nylea (in that order). My reasoning is that you aren't really an aggro deck so I don't think you can fully capitalize on Drana. I am not a fan of Verdurous Gearhulk in EDH unless you plan to consistently bounce it. Traditionally I am not a fan of the Bow, but I can see its usefulness in this deck.
I personally really like The Mimeoplasm in this deck as well, especially since you can reanimate it with some of your cards.

cldennis89 i don't know about Joraga Warcaller being an infinite loop because it doesn't put counters on other elves it just gives them 1+1+. also a lot of times you can just drop him for one mana as a boost for Elvish Archdruid and then use Bow of Nylea to put a 1+1 counter on it each turn to slowly boost your elves late game.
