Genesis Hydra Discussion
1 week ago
Made a small tweak to the land balance. Looking at 1 or 2 mana sinks; would be especially nice if I found one that made +1/+1 counters, but I'm not familiar with any. Something like Genesis Wave could be great, though it would probably put some kicker spells in the graveyard. Genesis Hydra might be better. Ezuri, Renegade Leader, Wolfbriar Elemental, and Rock Slide already serve as sinks. Neheb, the Eternal looks like a good candidate to remove, as I generally don't need much more mana by the time he's castable.

Let's get you some wincons, and fix that landbase.
First: Landbase. Basic stuff, manarocks, and better land cards, and a touch of fetchlands to get us rocking and rolling. Then, guess what, you're playing green. Congrats, you get the luxury of a vast array of tasty morsels called ramp spells, so we'll take advantage of that.
Next, let's look at capitalizing on your commander's strengths: Card draw. We'll add in card draw, and some hand size manipulation to help manage it, along with some ways to make use of all that mana you gain and cards you draw.
- Storm Sculptor + Tishana, Voice of Thunder
Now for some wincons:
-Devastation Tide +Goblin Cannon (with your upcoming infinite mana/card draw combos, draw into this, then ping everyone for infinite damage and win, the ability stacks as many times as you pay the mana for it, before sacrificing itself).
-Spelltwine. - River's Rebuke
-Ghostly Flicker +Aphetto Alchemist (equip bracers to alphetto, tap to untap it and target manarock or kydele for aother infinite mana combo, once you have infinite combos going, you can take multiple turns, draw out your whole deck with psychosis or lab maniac or tishana, or empyrial plate, etc)
Other infinite combos you can look for are Sword of the Paruns or Umbral Mantle equipped to kydele if she's drawn enough cards. The possibilities are vast, just a matter of finding yourself a bit of room for those cards, which shouldn't be too hard. However I'm also aware of budgets, I know I've suggested a LOT of changes, many that you might need to purchase, and while the individual cards aren't too pricey, collectively it's a lot once you look at all the changes. But if you're personally looking to take your deck to the next level, I'll add some more blingy suggestions at the end of this comment.
Last couple of swaps to make:
The bling: Staff of Domination (more kydele comboing)
other cards to consider would be a touch more cantrips and counterspells? Depends on local meta, how often you need to stop people from preventing your comboing off: Pact of Negation Muddle the Mixtures Brainstorm Mystical Tutor

Perhaps Deadeye Navigator so you can combo or do some ETB shenanigans
Mulldrifter because I like one mana draw two cards
Conduit of Ruin because YES
Genesis Hydra for basically overpowered cascade
I would take out
Death's Presence because creatures very rarely die and for six mana even getting two activations is not enough value
Bane of Bala Ged is just not enough compared to some other cards
Deadbridge Goliath is not explosive enough
Same with Ulamog's Crusher

I don't really like/don't really play mono-green, but I'll give it a shot.
I'm not really sure what the deck is trying to do. Maybe Skyshroud Claim/Thran Dynamo for ramp. Triumph of the Hordes for a wincon that people don't really see coming. Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for a big bomb for later (or early, this is green after all). Genesis Wave/Genesis Hydra feel like musts.
Just some of my thoughts, I don't really know what you are going for.

Maybe the three Gideon's Lawkeeper for Birds of Paradise as the Birds of Paradise can accelerate you into casting things faster, and I don't really see the point of the lawkeepers. Also, I would go down 2 Safehold Elites for the Kitchen Finks and the Genesis Hydra for Walking Ballista.

Cool deck man!

Maybe Genesis Hydra would be good, since it has counters and plays an additional card
