Also I'm not sure that Hydra Broodmaster 's Monstrosity ability is doubled by Unbound Flourishing , so maybe that's a card to cut in favor of Kalonian Hydra? In any case, as a Timmy this deck looks super fun! +1

Actually Unbound Flourishing (you may choose a new target, just choose any other hydra to become monsterous) and Hydra Broodmaster lets you boost any other hydra, this way any hydra can become monstrous, so it is still a good mana sink.

You mentioned that Unbound Flourishing is insane with Hydra Broodmaster , but I don't think Unbound does anything to the monstrous ability as it cannot be doubled due to the restrictions of it being monstrous for the copy, so it doesn't impact it at all?

I do like your use of Vigor and fighting spells like Whip Silk . I might need to alter how my deck works a little.

Thanks drooski! I found that Umbral Mantle is great especially with mana sinks. I won once with infinite mana and monstrousing my Hydra Broodmaster at the end step just before my turn, which was awesome. I was lucky to get a Paradox Engine after rotation before they spiked in price. I haven't had issues setting up but I have had issues recovering from board wipes, which is were I found Creeping Renaissance to be helpful. So helpful in fact, I recently added Praetor's Counsel as well. I have been fortunate so far drawing, with 13 draw (like) effects in the deck. Two new cards that I am really fond of are Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and Vivien's Arkbow . While not being draw pre se they both have been great so far and are very affordable at the moment.

Hungering Hydra and Hooded Hydra are definitely bad in modern. Hydra Broodmaster is almost certainly way too slow. Predator's Rapport isn't the kind of effect you want in modern. It'll be too late by the time you cast it.

UPDATE I threw in another Hydra Broodmaster because of its monstrousity effect and 2 Walking Ballista for some added fun. So far this deck is 8-0. With the new London mulligan this deck is ridiculously fast and powerful.

Thanks Lame_Duck I actually have 2 Polukranos, World Eater On the way along with another Primordial Hydra but good call on removing Managorger Hydra I realize it really doesn’t do any good for me because I’m looking for huge hydras without waiting for them to grow. Genesis Hydra does make a good tutor for when I go infinite (to find a Kalonian Hydra or a Hydra Broodmaster ) but I suppose I really don’t need two of them. I’m thinking about adding 2 Walking Ballista for another infinite win con. Definitely going to add more Hydra Broodmaster and 2 more Kalonian Hydra . Thanks for the suggestions! Happy tapping!
