At the beginning of combat on your turn, put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control. Then if that creature has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, transform Hadana's Climb.

Hadana's Climb Discussion
3 days ago
To start off: Hardened Scales, Bear Umbra and Ordeal of Nylea. You do allot with just one counter, make use of it! And bear umbra or ordeal of nylea not only means counters but also a free extra Jenara abilities each turn.
Then we have allot of +1/+1 synergy in this deck, but allot of them are single use or difficult to get.
- Ninth Bridge Patrol is by no means terrible, but we don't have token generators let alone sacrifice outlets, so what about Cathars' Crusade? We want to grow, not compensate when we shrink!
- Hunt the Weak, forget the counter and go for Nature's Way. Same concept but cheaper and more diverse.
- Obsessive Skinner is decent, but you could also take Forgotten Ancient
- Ajani, Caller of the Pride would be a direct upgrade to Ajani, Valiant Protector in my opinion. And while you have some flavor for the valiant protector that we will now lose, that's ok;
Because what about Collective Effort for multiple purposes. Orzhov Advokist to play it politically. Hadana's Climb, Dragonscale General, Master Biomancer, Tuskguard CaptainVerdurous Gearhulk, Increasing Savagery and ow Kalonian Hydra!

Hey, KiroiSenko, welcome to TappedOut :) Conclave Cavalier is a good suggestion, the card is definitely strong, but it's not amazing enough to have to change the manabase for it's CMC. It's CMC is very difficult to consistently make. I'm playing Steel Leaf Champion he's a core Elf, many people including myself say he is the reason to play green in Standard. Even with Unclaimed Territory's help (Cavalier is a Knight) it's still too difficult to play both Champion and Cavalier in the same deck, is the problem. Adding Song of Freyalise back into the deck would help.
If I was going to add a card four drop to this deck it would be Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants. Ajani is very versatile being a counters engine or reanimation of Thorn, Emmara or Collector. He's very good with Collector and Emmara putting counters on either getting Collector closer to trample and giving Emmara more toughness so she can safely attack. I'm currently playing one Ajani in the sideboard, wish I could play more, but can't consistently cast cards.
Lava Coil is going to be a big problem for midrange decks in Standard. It's the card red aggro needed to combat Champion, Rekindling Phoenix and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip. If Cavalier get killed by Coil it's exiled and as a result I don't get the tokens. Loxodon also has 4 toughness, but I got value from him when he ETB since he gives all creatures used to convoke him counters. I'm less upset if Coil exiles Loxodon.
Pelt Collector is an amazing card and I've taken your advice and added a fourth copy cutting 1x Seal Away, thanks. I'm not willing to cut a creature to add a fourth Collector, but cutting 1x Seal is fine. Four Collector does make him potentially worse as a top deck later in the game, but it also increases the consistently, my chances of having him turn one which is more important for the strategy of this deck.
Adding blue for Bant will have to wait until Jan. 2019. Then all ten Shock lands will be in Standard and it will be a wild ride for brewing in Standard. When this deck has access to Breeding Pool then blue and Bant has potential for Negate and Hadana's Climb Flip. Mirror Image is an interesting suggestion, but I don't think it's good enough card to warrant cutting something else. Maybe as a one of.

For Bbohl16: Mikaeus, the Lunarch would be an amazing addition to this deck! I can drop him for as little as two mana and then grow him/ use him to grow everything else. I love it!
For ZendikariWol: Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants would indeed be nice if I had a lower curve on my creatures but that is sadly not the case. Additionally his ult is rather underwhelming compared to the other versions I already have in this deck. Witch-Maw Nephilim/Managorger Hydra are both great cards for this deck and I will be adding them to my list!
In regards to Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, and Tuskguard Captain: I'll admit I have a personal distaste for these three cards but I already have workarounds in the deck that provide more utility/ are harder to remove. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice has lifelink already, Nylea, God of the Hunt gives everything trample with the benefit of being very hard to remove, and Hadana's Climb Flip can generate +1/+1 counters/ make me fly/ double my power & toughness. Also I have several creatures that are unblockable/ make my things unblockable.
Thank you both of you for the suggestions/comments and I hope I managed to make my reasoning for accepting/declining your suggestions clear.

Hey! Awesome deck! I have some suggestions, but feel free to do your own thing. A little about me: I'm a low level points grinder, so the changes that I make are for the sake of winning the game, as opposed to just playing to have fun. Okay, let's begin with what I'll take out and why, then, later, what I would bring in and why.
1 Deeproot Elite, 1 River Sneak , 2 Deeproot Waters : I'd take these out to make room for other cards. I don't feel like you need as many of these as you're running.
2 Tempest Caller & 2 Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca: I don't like Tempest Caller at all. Unless your meta is super creature heavy, this card feels dead more often than not. Besides, you play a ton of creatures still, so you can just go wide and kill that way. As for Kumena, you don't wanna play too many of a legend. You can make the argument to go up to 3 for a little bit more consistency, but I think 2 is the sweet spot here; you don't need her to win outright, the rest of your deck can take care of itself.
Field of Ruin, Kopala, Warden of Waves, & Seafloor Oracle: If you're not playing at least 2 in the mainboard, I'm not sure Field of Ruin is worth it, and it's definitely not worth running postboard. Seafloor Oracle is just a "win-more" card out of the board, in that if you're playing it successfully in game 2, you're already winning the game. I'd take it out for a relevant early game spell. Lastly, I'm taking Kopala out of the board to play 2 in the main. That card is crazy good.
Now to bring in: Let's start with the 4 Forests you need to replace the Oasis.
2 Negate, 2 Essence Scatter, 1 Spell Pierce, 1 Expel from Orazca, & 1 Hadana's Climb: These are your tempo swing cards. Counters to stop your opponent's relevant removal/game ending spells, a removal spell incase anything slips thru the cracks, and a game-ending enchantment in the Climb. All of these mainboard replacements look to swing the match in your favour when you cast any of them.
1 Naturalize, 2 Expel from Orazca, & 1 Hadana's Climb: A second Naturalize produces more consistence, and the same story goes with a second Hadana's Climb. I'm not sure what your budget it, but if you're able to, I'd put a Nezahal, Primal Tide and Vivien Reid in place of those two. But from what you currently have, Naturalize + The Climb seem great. Lastly, a pair of Expel in the side for more removal postboard.
Okay, I think that's 75. At least I hope. Hopefully you find your flow. The deck looks sweet, and I think that Merfolk post-rotation will be a force to be reckoned with. Excited to see what you do with it. +1

I quite like this deck. I run a G/U Hadana's Climb Flip Hexproof myself. I run 4 Dryad Greenseeker for my filter/ramp. It is better then the Druid because you can wait till the end of opponents turn to use his ability leaving him up to block, a serious benefit with all the aggro in the meta. You wont believe how great it is to draw a free land on before your turn 5 then drawing a Dreadmaw. It is card draw engine for green. If you want a good BUDGET creature for your Aether Tunnel then consider Jade Guardian, it is a 3/3 hexproof for 4. I run Opt for card draw, it's much cheaper and can be used if you don't need to counter a spell.

Let's see what we can do with a fifty dollars modern hydra deck. I'd suggest you might want to splash some RED since there are some hydras out there. If you do splash some red make sure you get some Frontier Bivouacs. There are only a total of 29 hydras available in the Modern format. The most expensive thing I've seen so far would either be using Khalni Hydra or Progenitus, they're both $9 to $12.
A handy reminder you need less "one-of's" and more 3-4 copies of card to have better chances to get certain cards.
Before we head into going through picking hydras, we need to address the mana base first. All of these suggestions are one : Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Sakura-Tribe Scout or Birds of Paradise. Birds are the best choice, but you're going to be limited by your budget. So the first three are your best options for additional mana ramping. Two mana rampers are going to be Naga Vitalist, Cryptolith Rite, Song of Freyalise or Zhur-Taa Druid. Rosheen Meanderer would do well with the number of spells you have.
Next we'll need some support cards to go along with our "Mana dorks" to keep our hydras going. Enter the Unknown, Hardened Scales and Hadana's Climb
Flip gets you more counters. If you want to have some counterspells throw in some Spell Pierces or Stubborn Denials to go with Disdainful Strokes. Maybe a Mindswipe.
I'm gonig to have to split this into two parts due to the limited amount of card suggestions I can give per post.

Primal Surge perhaps? Also regardless if you care or not about a graveyard theme, I think these cards are good on their own but even better with Muldrotha:Whiptongue Hydra, Constant Mists,Mishra's Bauble, and Executioner's Capsule.
I like that you chose a different take on Muldrotha, in fact a +1/+1 counters deck was my first edh deck 3 years ago starting with Vorel of the Hull Clade, but then came along Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and it should go without saying that I obviously changed up the deck.
