Gigantomancer Discussion

SunBurned on I Sexually Identify as a Nine Headed Hydra

1 week ago

Thanks for the helpful comment!

This deck started out primarily as a hydra deck and the reason for cutting some of the cards you mentioned was primarily because they don't get value quick enough and I tend to get overrun by fliers (which this deck is hopeless against) or by a combo on later turns, so my intent was to try and make this deck better at putting on pressure on earlier turns.

Hydra Broodmaster and Protean Hydra dont trample and are usually shut down by tokens, mana dorks, or other chum blockers in my playgroup, Lifeblood Hydra usually feels like a pain to play either as a significant body or as a draw option in my experience, and Ulvenwald Hydra doesnt come down early enough for its ramp to be significant and also doesnt trample.

However after hearing your ideas about possible 1/1 counter interactions I would like to see if I can make these hydras work - Gigantomancer in particular looks super sweet, either by buffing hydras or making my many mana dorks into threats late game. I have a lot more ramp than I was previously using as well, which may further support the hydra package.

Tldr: maybe the hydra theme of my deck just needed more support rather than other subsitute threats, and I will give them a try again.

Thanks again for the insight!

I have a deck vaguely similar to this one that uses Yisan, the Wanderer Bard as it its commander. If I had any suggestion to make, it would be that since you want to focus on hydras, put some more +1/+1 counter interactions in. You might like things like Mighty Emergence, Soul's Might, Nissa's Judgment, Hardened Scales, Inspiring Call, or Death's Presence. Also, since many hydras have an "X" in their cost, you can get more counters on them by having cards that reduce the cost, like Rhonas's Monument, Emerald Medallion, or Conduit of Ruin. Again, since most hydras are 0/0 and work off counters, a fun card to run with them is Gigantomancer, who would just give them +7/+7. There also some good hydras I'm not seeing here. Ones like Protean Hydra, Lifeblood Hydra, or Ulvenwald Hydra. I'm sure you have your reasons, but I'd consider those.

As for what's on the maybeboard, Hydra Broodmaster seems like an obvious choice for a hydra deck and I'm curious why you cut it, especially in a deck with this much ramp. Pathbreaker Ibex would do amazing work if you can guarantee at least two other big creatures attack along side it. Shamanic Revelation is a great source of draw and recovery since you're almost guaranteed to meat the ferocious requirement. Surrak, the Hunt Caller is another pick that has some real potential in this deck. The others I personally don't think much of.

Hope this helps

FYI, Gigantomancer is spelled wrong in your description, that's why the site couldn't find it. The site can recognize any card if it's spelled correctly, so the "cards not found" message means you spelled them wrong.

An interesting feature of hydras is that many of them have printed stats of 0/0. What do you think of Gigantomancer, Gigantiform or Creeperhulk as cheap and easy ways to give them huge stat boosts?

For lousy CMC-to-stats, I like the Scornful Egotist and Gigantomancer others have pointed out. But it's probably hard to beat Skyreach Manta, if cast with Colorless mana :-)

For smallest physical size, how about the 0/0 Germ Tokens that come with Batterskull, Mortarpod, and the like?
