antacidbrn Personally, I would sideboard cards like Naturalize or Fragmentize against the Trespasser's Curse and Epic Confrontation against Blood Seeker, to make him fight one of my pumped-up dudes.

TheChaosVault Thanks! I have played it a few times, and using cipher to untap the lands works super well. Even when you don;t have the big threats it allows you to establish a board state faster than usual, in addition to taking advantage of Epic Confrontation during the second main phase. My only problem with Last Thoughts is that you have to cast it in order to exile it, and since you can only Cipher as a sorcery, Id be waiting until turn four to generate any card advantage. Fierce Empath Is nice but I might go down to 2 in favor of a second Trapjaw Kelpie because of that fact, but most of the time Im able to use the Fierce Empath with no problem.

Sweet brew, my man!

Have you considered Land Grant? Especially for mono-G, handy for thinning your deck for free.

Lignify, Prey Upon or Epic Confrontation might be handy to have some removal, too

Any plans for a sideboard?

Vigean Hydropon, as much as I love the card, isn't super great unless you're running some fight effects. Which you should probably be running anyway; your curve is so low and aggressive I encourage playing Prey Upon, Epic Confrontation and even Cartouche of Strength over your Fogs and Wrap in Vigors, which are more sideboard material.

You absolutely need to be running 2-3 Riparian Tiger to be able to contend with the boogeyman of Pauper. It's also just a solid lategame beater.

Depending on whether you find yourself getting chump blocked a lot or not, Aetherstream Leopard could be better than Thriving Rhino, although the former does have a cap on how big it will get.

Fuel for the Cause might be interesting. It's a rather expensive counterspell, but it's some form of removal, and synergistic with your list.

In short, I'd cut the Hydropons for the Tigers, replace Fogs with Prey Upons, and divide the Wrap in Vigors and Thrives for Fuel for the Cause and/or another fighting card.

The Rick and Morty reference caught my attention; this is a sweet deck for sure!

Two of my favorite creatures are Vampire Nighthawk and his little brother Gifted Aetherborn.

I cut the two Epic Confrontation for two more Rabid Bite just to avoid your creature taking damage. I know epic gives a pump so I can't say I'm 100% on that. Just an idea

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.

Thanks for the reply! You might want to update your Spells section since you still have Epic Confrontation in there instead of Pounce. :)

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
