Hydra Broodmaster Discussion
1 week ago
Ok, since it's closer to modern, I'll suggest only cards that could fit that format
But, first of all, why don't you reduce your deck up to 60 cards?
Now, since your goal is to get big creatures on the battlefield, why don't you add things like Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Steel Leaf Champion, Rhonas the Indomitable, Thragtusk, Acidic Slime, Craterhoof Behemoth, Gigantosaurus, Primeval Titan, Worldspine Wurm, Thrun, the Last Troll?
I've also seen that you have some creatures that require 2/3 specifical mana, so why not some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx instead of the Urza's Lands?
Cards I personally don't like from this deck:
Garruk's Packleader, already said
Last thing: since you already have big creatures in your deck, what's the purpose of instant and sorceries that just make them bigger? I'd personally add usefull instants like Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense

Good spot, I had the wrong land in there. It was meant to be Memorial to Unity. I had Worldspine Wurm in there to begin with but I didn't really feel it added much to the deck and in most games, my Allosaurus Rider is easier to cast and is bigger. Hydra Broodmaster is a fantastic late game mana sink and has won me games when people don't have an answer to it the turn it drops.
Giant Adephage is an interesting choice, I'll try out a copy in the deck.

Thanks for the input, wisegreenbean. I removed most of those before reading your comment, but those that are still in the list will stay for now. Felidar Sovereign will likely be cut, but it is a reasonable body with lifelink, and can occasionally win the game.
Sunscorch Regent is a card that I think you're underestimating. It can get enormous, and gains a little bit of life. That said, I made this list in about 40 minutes this morning, so I am still very much testing cards in and out.
The Aura/Equipment package: Heliod's Pilgrim does only get auras, and while the package might be too cute, the versatility is definitely worth testing before I make a final decision. Open the Armory can get me Swiftfoot Boots, Skullclamp, or Behemoth Sledge, and feels much more strong a consideration for it.
Hydra Broodmaster is a test card solely because of Shalai's hexproof giving. Depending on whether she tends to be killed off or not, it may or may not make the cut. The strongest consideration is that Like WG does in edh, overextending into a wipe can easily lose this deck the game, and having a way to add to my board meaningfully without playing out more cards from hand is worth considering.

I reckon average CMC probably needs to come down overall. You have almost no ramp in the deck, afterall, only like 5 cards. 21 at >5 CMC seems pretty whack, especially when your commander is a mana sink. Farhaven Elf and Wood Elves seems reasonable value with your creature synergies.
Felidar Sovereign seems not synergistic. Low life gain opportunities.
Reya Dawnbringer is clunk town, particularly with lots of other ways to reanimate/prevent creatures dying.
Hydra Broodmaster will probably be a 2 turn process. That's usually a 7/7 for 6, followed up by 3 3/3s if it lives. 19 power for 13 mana isn't really an exceptional rate on mana efficiency, and it offers so little utility.
Yosei, the Morning Star seems ambitious with your fairly small reanimator suite.
Sunscorch Regent seems a bit like a do-nothing fatty.
The Great Aurora feels pretty bad when you really aren't a dedicated token deck.
Angelic Arbiter is a giant awkward fatty that ALSO gives your opponent choices. Don't love it.
The 'aura package' might be too cute. I think you already are working in a lot of different directions there, between trying to be a counters deck, and a hatebears deck, and a tokens deck. Open the Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim are not exceptional. This makes Lignify pretty bad too.
You have a variety of field sweeps despite being a creature deck. I don't think this is wrong, but given the effort you've put into 'indestructible synergy', the sweeps that bypass indestructible seem problematic for you. Note, this still leaves you with 5 sweeps after Hallowed Burial and Descend upon the Sinful are cut.

Homelessguy If I have infinite mana, I can use Staff of Domination or Walking Ballista! ..or pump my guys with Trample via Ezuri, Renegade Leader or Rhonas the Indomitable, or flood the board with infinite ginormous Hydras with Hydra Broodmaster, or draw & play every creature in the entire deck with Duskwatch Recruiter Flip.. Many options, & the Great Oak Guardian combos nicely with Selvala & Temur Sabertooth to produce that infinite mana

I highly recommend both Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl. The combination of the two could net you a substantial amount of mana in the early game. Arbor Colossus is a decent thing to ramp into, and that's what I'd be looking for, also Gigantosaurus is a thing. If you don't mind a moderate price tag, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is an excellent land to add as a 1-2 of. In the realm of monstrous, you also have Hydra Broodmaster as an absolute house. If you're dealing with an aggressive deck, consider Hornet Nest.
