Target creature you control gets +1/+2 until end of turn. It fights target creature you don't control. (Each deals damage equal to its power to the other.)

Cool deck idea, Hydras are rad. I have a few thoughts, though.
The first is that I think you've got to fix your curve. You've got the same number of 1-drops as you do 6 and 7-drops. On early turns you're more likely to to have hands full of cards that will be better suited for the late game than early. Redistributing the curve is gonna be really helpful. If you want to keep all the big creatures you've got on your list, at least reduce the count of each of them to a single copy.
Some good early game options are Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, and Sylvan Caryatid. These cards will all help you ramp so you can play bigger creatures earlier. The other thing worth remembering is that with Hydra's their cost listed here is inaccurate. Mistcutter Hydra is a 1-drop, but you'd never cast it for a single forest. Worth considering.
Secondly, I think you've got too many creatures. If you were to take the creature count down to 24, you'll be doing yourself some favors. You can take those 8 cards and replace them with cards that can interact more with your opponents strategy. I'd look for cards that can remove creatures with flying like Whirlwind and creature removal, for green it's going to be spells like Epic Confrontation where one of your bigger creatures can destroy another creature outside of combat.
Hope I've given you some helpful ideas.

Looks pretty good! A few recommendations: First off, Elvish Skysweeper seems a bit too expensive for what it does, I'd recommend replacing it with a card like Lignify or Epic Confrontation. Also, I'd take out 2-3 of your forests and put in a few more non creature spells, probably some more single target removal like Naturalize, Unravel the Aether, or other cards like it. Otherwise, great deck! Can't wait to play against it

I would suggest fighting cards within your colors, they synergize with Saskia. Here are a few examples within your color range: Prey Upon, Prepare / Fight, Contested Cliffs, Epic Confrontation, Domri Rade, Triangle of War, Blood Feud

Don't use Epic Confrontation. You don't really want their creature fighting back. Use Nature's Way instead, because their creature won't get to deal damage to you. Or, Ambuscade or Clear Shot if you need an instant-speed spell to punch an opponent's creature.
Though, it'd probably be faster to Soul's Fire the opponents' face for 9 damage, if you had just one Precursor Golem. If you had two Precursors, it'd copy it twice for every other golem, so with 4 tokens, 33 damage? Also, it seems I made a mistake on the math of two Precursor Golems in my last post, you'd only get 11 Clue tokens.

Again, Thanks for all the suggestions. It's not a full playset, but I could replace Fleeting Memories with Ongoing Investigation, and 2x Tireless Tracker with a couple Whirler Rogue. They would really help with the secondary win condition of hitting big with Chasm Skulker or Lorescale Coatl and would mean I could remove Wingcrafter.
Precursor Golem is perfect in this deck, and is definitely going in with Confront the Unknown and maybe Epic Confrontation for the removal the deck has been missing. Also, I hadn't realised that Mechanized Production doesn't have to be attached to the winning artifact.

Love the idea, not sure if it will work in such a aggresive meta. Prey Upon might be a nice option, but Rabid Bite and Epic Confrontation are better if don't want your own creatures to die, or have -1/-1 counters cause of infect.
For casual play this will be a lot of fun to play I could only imagine

I really like this deck and I think I might build something similar since I have many of these cards, including the commander, already. If I were you though I would include more mana dorks and land enchantments currently you are only running Elvish Mystic as a manadork but you can add Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Beastcaller Savant, Zhur-Taa Druid, Sylvan Caryatid, Voyaging Satyr, Deathrite Shaman, Gyre Sage, and Arbor Elf. You can also run cards like Wild Growth, Overgrowth, Fertile Ground, Utopia Sprawl, Dictate of Karametra, and other land enchantments which interact very well with Voyaging Satyr and Arbor Elf which can untap an enchanted land. Also, with such a small number of instants and sorceries Primal Surge would destroy any opponent. You could try throwing in some removal as well such as Beast Within and cards that allow creatures to fight your opponents creatures. These can come out of nowhere and decimate your opponents thanks to Xenagos, God of Revels. these could include Epic Confrontation, Prey Upon, Nessian Wilds Ravager, Polukranos, World Eater, Pit Fight, Savage Punch, and Setessan Tactics. You shouldnt include all of these cards but go with whichever ones in each category that you like
