Also, you could replace your least favorite hydra with Vigor. Play the deck a few times to see how those "enters the battlefield with counters equal to creatures in graveyards"-type creatures work out for you. I suspect that there will be times that your commander will eat their lunch, so to speak. Rhizome Lurcher seems to be the weakest of these, and this would be a good slot for any of the other cards I mentioned. Other cards to look at are Fungal Behemoth, Scute Mob, Obsessive Skinner, and Feral Hydra: if they're not pulling their weight when you test your deck then I would try replacing these with other cards.

JakSprks, when a card says it enters the battlefield with so and so plus one counters, those are counters are not doubled by Yarok because it’s not a triggers ability. For example, a card like Prime Speaker Zegana enters the battlefield with +1/+1 counters equal to the greatest power among creatures you control. Nothing triggered that ability, therefor it isn’t doubled by Yarok. You put a few cards like that ( Feral Hydra , Voracious Hydra ) into your deck, so I just wanted to clarify. I’ll attach my Yarok deck too so you can compare and take possible inspiration: Yarok, the Desecrated- Landfall Abuse.

Do you find you actually have enough uses for all that mana you will be generating? You could dump it all into something like Domesticated Hydra , Feral Hydra or Kazandu Tuskcaller as a win condition. Urza's Blueprints and/or Arcane Encyclopedia are likewise affordable card draw pieces that don't interfere with your land drops the way Mercadian Atlas does.

I also doubt Blanchwood Armor is much more expensive than Aspect of Wolf, or Whirlwind more than Crosswinds - just some ideas for upgrades!

I take that back, I thought Feral Hydra cost more to ramp than 3 mana.

Thanks loricatuslupus, I like Winding Constrictor more than Feral Hydra . I grabbed FH after seeing it in another build but it doesn't ramp much unless you get Corpsejack Menace out or have a bunch of lands.

Out: 1 Feral Hydra In: 1 Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi

Argument: You would need to pump 10 mana into the Hydra to get 9 counters, as opposed to 5 for Vitu-Ghazi.

I'd look at skewing things towards more creatures- mainboarding servants, cutting the number of Increasing Savagery / Bioshift / Forced Adaptationfor cards like

Deeproot Champion Merfolk Branchwalker Feral Hydra Grim Initiate Mistcutter Hydra Pollenbright Druid Quirion Dryad Runaway Steam-Kin Scrounging Bandar Stromkirk Noble Simic Initiate Vastwood Hydra Young Wolf

Keeping your creature count high massively increases the reliability of lists like this without breakning the bank. I'd also look at Temple of Abandon , Magma Jet , Cream of the Crop and Thunderous Wrath - the red and green miracles are really good with a little support, especially maindeck noxious.

There's a fun toy that isn't in this deck for some reason, probably because it's an obscure "Junk Rare" from Journey into Nyx that no one's heard of. Heroes' Bane can be seen as either a Feral Hydra that trades a variable X for exponential growth or a Chameleon Colossus that trades Protection from Black and Changeling for permanent boosts.
