Genesis Hydra Discussion

I feel like Garruk, Caller of Beasts is the better Garruk, since he allows you to get heavy green creatures on the battlefield for just three loyalty. Since you have so many elves, add Elvish Archdruid. Not only does he create ridiculous amounts of mana, he doubles the power and toughness of most of your elves by giving them +1/+1. Incredible value! Also, if you like your Genesis Hydra, consider adding Genesis Wave, an elite version. Nice budget deck, hope my suggestions help, keep up the good work, and see my deck if you want more ideas!
I made a similar deck that you should check out, it shows a different take on green elves ramp:

So after a quick look at the deck here are a few suggestions I have (a grain of salt with the size of your choosing.)
Since you care about sacing creatures and possibly bringing them back, creatures with ETB ramp triggers might be better than the ramp spells. For example Sakura-Tribe Elder, Farhaven Elf, Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Yavimaya Elder,...ect. If you need a ton of ramp mid game you could always run Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.

If you find yourself with an Infinite Animar, Soul of Elements & Genesis Hydra in hand then you're setup to grab exactly what you need at the time. Can also tutor for Genesis Hydra with Imperial Recruiter.
Another Combo which just blows up the game is Glimpse of Nature + Ancestral Statue. Typically I'll rock this out and draw 20 cards at a time. Making sure to hold or bounce Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth before proceeding to discard. It's possible to mill yourself but if you've got untapped mana before kicking this combo off, you're pretty much always set. Even if the Eldrazis are in the last 10 cards of your deck, you've still most likely won at this point.

If you're willing to spend a bit more:
If you end up going with some of the mana enhancers like Mirari's and Itlimoc, some X spells could be good:

Based on what I'm seeing, you have no need for red in this deck at all! Your Hero would likely be better as Kalonian Hydra, Genesis Hydra, Hooded Hydra, or something like that. You should be generating HUGE amounts of mana with your elves, so X spells would be very good payoff. You only have 2 cards that care about lands as well, so your ramp spells would likely be much better as Collected Company or even Chord of Calling. Hell, even Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip could see play here.

Hardened Scales is a must.
Burst of Strength is too weak imo.
Karametra's Favor is useless in this deck.
