Copying Hungering Hydra would make a 0/0 because the +1/+1 counters are not put on it. Great deck tho. +1

HailHydra is a friend of mine from work. He's the one who introduced me to Magic. He has a few private decks on here but quit playing a while ago.

His #1 favorite subtype in all of Magic are Hydra, hence his name. Something that always bothered him is the progressive lack of good Hydra.

See, each color was supposed to have a beast that accurately represented it. Red has Dragons, Black has Demons, White has Angels, Blue has Sphinxs, and Green had Hydra. Over time, obviously other colors were adapted and newer creatures took some of their places.

While the game progressed forward, churning out some purely outstanding Dragons, Demons, Angels, and some really awesome Sphinxs, the Hydra got the short end of the stick.

The recent making of the new M19 Hungering Hydra has been a wait that has been far too long in my opinion, but still isn't quite up to par on the Hydra mythos of old.

(Side note: I like how the Hydra in that card is actually Heroes' Bane)

This one's for you, buddy.

Έκαμε εκατό

Legendary Creature - Hydra Avatar

Trample, reach, doublestrike

Έκαμε εκατό enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it and you may choose to draw X cards or gain X life.

If X is 5 or more, Έκαμε εκατό gains Indestructible. If X is 10 or more, Έκαμε εκατό has Hexproof. If X is 20 or more, you win the game.

Whenever you are dealt damage, put that many +1/+1 counters on Έκαμε εκατό.


Έκαμε εκατό is Greek for One-hundred Headed One, according to Google.

Same challenge. See if you can attribute someone who isn't typically in this thread.

My favorites are:

My Jund and Esper EDH decks will love this. Vae is replacing Wasitora as soon as I can get it.

Not to forget another great hydra for hydra-tribal
