Creature — Hydra
Hungering Hydra enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it.
Hungering Hydra can't be blocked by more than one creature.
Whenever Hungering Hydra is dealt damage, put that many +1/+1 counters on it. (It must survive the damage to get the counters.)

Hungering Hydra Discussion

This is an awesome deck ..I dig what you are doing...I know Most of these aren't elves but here are my main thoughts... maybe Aggressive Mammoth for universal trample what's cooler than an elf army that has trample..Majestic Myriarch because your creature output is off the chain and it doubles the power..and an elfy suggestion Presence of Gond most notable when paired multi color ie Midnight Guard but over all might fit well with this deck. For counter fun via Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar add counters etc so as expensive and frankly overused as it is Doubling Season may be helpful though you did say budget...so my suggestion would be some of the hydras instead Primordial Hydra, Voracious Hydra, Hungering Hydra, Vastwood Hydra which let you play early or build up and the The Ozolith to keep the extra..As for PlanesWalkers Any of the Nissa's would help you out tremendously but the one I thought for sure you would have for sure was Nissa Revane...the only potential problems I see with this deck in general is its lack of flying and or reach / protection from flying...so might want a few spiders etc Watcher in the Web is particularly gnarly and Arboreal Grazer has the benefit of low mana cost and land fetch.

Cards I'm thinking of adding:
- Oko, Thief of Crowns - because it's Oko
- Hungering Hydra - cheap hydra, can grow big and has a semi form of evasion
- Plaxcaster Frogling - evasion, +1/+1 counters for theme
- Mythos of Brokkos - 4 mana for tutor and yard recursion
- Deadly Rollick - because it's Deadly Rollick
- Genesis Hydra - with enough mana this honestly is a great card. It lacks trample but I like the effect
- Sultai Charm - O P T I O N S
- Mind Shatter - tbh I'm iffy on this one. Forcing someone to discard possible threats is huge, but at sorcery speed limits me

Many suggestions depend on how crazy you want to go with your mana base but assuming you are building in Jund colors, here I go...
Setessan Champion is the best card draw if you go enchantment heavy.
Also, I would suggest maybe adding some ramp cards because on turn 2 you will only be able to play two 1 cmc cards and on turn four you would likely only play a 1 cmc card and a 3 cmc card. Abundant Growth is good mana fixing and Arboreal Grazer is solid ramp.
If you feel up to cutting red and putting in white, there are better synergies around enchantments in white.

Hey love the deck. Thanks for the comment on my deck list. Thinking I may stray away from the mutate theme and put more value targets like yours here. An awesome commander matters card you might want to consider is Blackblade Reforged. Haven't play tested yet but I have high hopes! Brokkos being legendary and able to jump around with the sword equipping for 3 sounds amazing. I was also thinking of adding cards like Protean Hydra and Hungering Hydra as solid targets for Brokkos. Excited to keep brewing. Good luck in your Brokkos endeavours!!

Hey, nice start with a high budget.
Sultai is the best color combination for ramp, tutors and draw in Commander. My advice with a $700+ budget is to take more advantage of these. There's nothing wrong with a few Hydras, but most of them are the lackluster cards in the deck. Zaxara being a four drop can benefit from more fast ramp especially one drop mana dorks.
Carpet of Flowers is powerful repeatable ramp in multiplayer Commander. Mystery Booster Card set version is down to $15.
More tutors and repeatable draw sources let you cut some subpar X spells instead tutor for and/or draw into the better spells. Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study are two of the best sources of repeatable draw in multiplayer Commander. More one drop mana dorks and Zaxara creates tokens is good as fodder for Diabolic Intent.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Kodama's Reach
- Primordial Hydra
- Protean Hydra
- Vastwood Hydra
- Gargos, Vicious Watcher
- Hungering Hydra
- Genesis Hydra
- Icy Blast
- Profane Command
- Overwhelming Stampede
Good luck with your deck.
