I also have an atraxa deck (Atraxa, counter crazy if you want to check it out) and i cant believe i missed some cards that you have that work extremly well like Phytohydra, Scute Mob, and Hungering Hydra to name a few.

Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma and Gigantosaurus I see little reason not to include here. Jadelight Ranger and even Merfolk Branchwalker should be strongly considered as well. Runic Armasaur, at the very least, should absolutely be in your sideboard. It shuts down certain strategies and has dinosynergy; no brainer.

Hungering Hydra is my card suggestion that see/expect anyone to mention. It's arguably the best GX cost hydra they've printed so far, and it's going completely under the radar, likely because it's "another hydra"

Draglord_Sim, fun fact about Hungering Hydra, it's the same breed as Heroes' Bane :)

I know it is not as reliable a Druid of the Cowl, but Dryad Greenseeker is a powerful card to bolster the weakest part of your deck, Card draw and top decking lands. WIth out a way to add more counters you will be waiting a while to fly with Climb. Use more auras, or try Hungering Hydra.

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.

But all around good cards for your counter theme would be Kalonian Hydra, Herald of Secret Streams, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Novijen, Heart of Progress, and Hungering Hydra.

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.

Hungering Hydra and Merfolk Branchwalker seem somewhat questionable in the deck, with a deck like this i would be looking at Carnage Tyrant and Prepare.

The Tyrant is brilliant against the Blue white decks, along with being hexproof and trampling.

and tyrant, Glorybringer and palladia combined with Prepare//Fight is a mass blow out for most decks, especially aggro based

So Hungering Hydra is a real card that this deck really wants. So, to make room:

-1 Kiora's Follower, +1 Hungering Hydra
