Hydra Omnivore Discussion

DemonDragonJ on Iconic Masters Announced

2 weeks ago

Eladamri's Call and Cromat have never been reprinted, so I would like to see them reprinted in this set, and Worldly Tutor also should be here, as well, since it was left out of Eternal Masters in favor of Green Sun's Zenith.

As for iconic creatures, my predictions are as follows:

Angels: it is very safe to presume that both Serra Angel and Akroma, Angel of Wrath shall be in this set, hopefully, with new artwork for both, and I also would like to see Angelic Arbiter, Shepherd of the Lost, Angel of Jubilation, Pristine Angel, Iridescent Angel, Crypt Angel, Desolation Angel, Angel of Despair, Empyrial Archangel, and Archangel of Thune.

Demons: Lord of the Pit is one of the most iconic demons in the game, but some other excellent choices are Abyssal Persecutor, Archfiend of Depravity, Bloodgift Demon, Butcher of the Horde, Grinning Demon, Havoc Demon, Herald of Torment, Kagemaro, First to Suffer, Kuro, Pitlord, Lord of the Void, and Xathrid Demon.

Sphinxes: it was not until recently that sphinxes started to become powerful and efficient, but, thankfully, there ave been a number of excellent sphinxes made, recently, including Consecrated Sphinx, Conundrum Sphinx, Goliath Sphinx, Guardian of Tazeem, Medomai the Ageless, Sharuum the Hegemon, Sphinx of Jwar Isle, Sphinx of Magosi, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, and Sphinx of Uthuun.

Hydras: as with sphinxes, hydras only recently have been well-designed creatures, so some hydras that I would like to see in this set are Apocalypse Hydra, Domesticated Hydra, Genesis Hydra, Hydra Broodmaster, Hydra Omnivore, Kalonian Hydra, Khalni Hydra, Managorger Hydra, Primordial Hydra, Savageborn Hydra, Ulasht, the Hate Seed, and Vastwood Hydra.

Dragons: there are too many dragons for me too list all of them, but it is safe to presume that Shivan Dragon shall be in this set, hopefully with new artwork, and some of my top choices are Moonveil Dragon, Balefire Dragon, Dragon Tyrant, Ebon Dragon, Mirrorwing Dragon, Moltensteel Dragon, Scourge of Valkas, Stormbreath Dragon, Two-Headed Dragon, Utvara Hellkite, Vampiric Dragon, Viashivan Dragon, and Hellkite Overlord.

Wow, I certainly typed many card names in this post: I hope that I did not miss any. enter image description here

Extra attack phase cards don't get much better than Aurelia, the Warleader. Gahiji, Honored One, Quietus Spike, True Conviction, Collective Blessing and Dictate of Heliod are pump spells you might like. Hydra Omnivore and Siege Behemoth can always get combat damage in. Outmaneuver, Ride Down, Arachnogenesis are nice combat tricks. Strionic Resonator can copy a damage doubling trigger. Cards like Boros Reckoner, Spitemare, Arcbond can make damage multiply big time. If they are damaged with a furnace of rath effect in play you double the damage to it and then it shoots double damage of that to something else. You quadruple the damage. Plus you gotta throw in Wound Reflection.

Hydra Omnivore. Also, you should enable chat on me so we can quickly discuss more suggestions without filling in the comments. Brewing decks is my primary hobby, so I've got ideas. I just discovered there was a chat here.

Besides flavor, Bow of Nylea ought to be included for the slew of effects it gives you. Blocking is now very undesirable for opponents, plus it shoots down smaller flying creature, and shuffles cards from your graveyard back into your library. Utility is everything in EDH.

Rishkar's Expertise is an insane EDH card that should be acquired while the price is still low. Draws you a crapton of cards, then you can play something from your hand with mana cost 5 or less, which potentially includes a card you just drew into.

Your list needs more mana dorks to get your bigger creatures out faster. I recommend Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves, but Arbor Elf and Fyndhorn Elves do the same thing.

Hydra Omnivore is a stellar card for when you're facing off multiple opponents; bully the player with the weakest board state to ensure everyone else will be clocking in 8 damage every swing.

Garruk's Packleader is a great way to keep your engine running, by maximizing off the creatures you're playing and drawing you into more big creatures.

Where's Acidic Slime? One of the best green cards in EDH for sure. Deathtouch + artifact/enchantment/LAND removal? Sign me up!

Genesis Hydra is a great two-for-one, lets you play something huge off the top of your deck when you've ramped enough, and sticks around as a pretty big creature.

Zendikar Resurgent is excellent for lategame gas, plus it makes your X-spell Hydras more insane.

No Angelic Overseer for Odric shenanigans? Also might want to consider Concerted Effort -- It doesn't cover as many keywords as Odric, but it's harder to get rid of and spreads any protection abilities.

Otherwise, since you have Hydra Omnivore and Herald of the Host, going wide might be a neat idea. Grenzo's Ruffians are a smaller Omnivore with Melee, meaning it can get pretty big my itself. The other myriad creatures in Naya colours are a good idea in such a case, along with Nacatl War-Pride. Adriana, Captain of the Guard is a nice idea if you go down that route, as it'll make all your creatures bigger when you swing in and they create tokens.

I've seen red green Hydra decks before but not with the commander you've chosen (I've mostly encountered Xenagos, God of Revels and Mina and Denn, Wildborn with hydras). I think it is a brilliant choice though. I must say it's a nice looking deck. I can't think of many suggestions other than things that make even more mana like Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, maybe Zendikar Resurgent. One of my favorite hydras is Hydra Omnivore; have you considered getting a Blade of Selves to pop on the omnivore and devour the entire table in a few swings?

I suggest Hydra Omnivore and Blade of Selves. Makes a nasty combo.
