Hydra Omnivore Discussion

Scion_of_Darkness on Mono green hydra tribal deck

2 days ago

Bad news: Hydra Omnivore and Burgeoning aren't Modern legal.

Good news: I play what I want, too. Moving on.

As long as you're not sticking strictly to Modern, Berserk has been reprinted and can be picked up way cheaper than it used to be. Throw that on a Hydra Omnivore. Or a Blade of Selves!

One thing I see is that you have to many Hydras and not enough mana. I would recommend loosing Primordial Hydra, bring Polukranos, World Eater down to 1 copy, and not use Rishkar, Peema Renegade. You wouldn't want to be tapping huge Hydras for a piece. Consider going with a Elf mana core like Mystic elf, Elvish Archdruid and Priest of Titania. Switch out the 4xTreetop Village for 2xNykthos, Shrine to Nyx and 2xRogue's Passage. Also Genesis Wave (and Genesis Hydra)!

Blade of Selves and Hydra Omnivore are both really good for kicking everything at the same time

sonnet666 on Godo Neheb Kiki Combo

Ok, I found a much, much more simple combo for you:

Godo + Darksteel Plate + Worldslayer + Darksteel Axe (to speed things along).

Connect with Godo on your second combat and you'll blow up all permanents except for him on every combat for the rest of the game.

Yes, this is a bit more fragile, but you'd be able to free up so many deckslots with this game plan, which would up your consistency in return.

I can, however, understand how you might not want to do this.

Most of your points make sense. I realized the Lightning Greaves issue myself shortly after posting, but I'm still not with you on Argentum Armor.

In terms of the mana needed to assemble your combo, maybe find room for Quietus Spike? You'll have extra room to tutor if you have more than 3 opponents, and Neheb will generate more than enough mana if you connect with that.

Sidenote: Keep an eye out for Wizards ever printing Hydra Omnivore's ability on an equipment. That's not out of the range of possibility, and if they do, it + Grafted Exoskeleton + pump and evasion on Godo would be the best possible wincon for this deck.

IvyLeaguerCU: That is -incredible!- I am going to have to get those! A reausable Traumatize...brutal...and I'll have to snag a few more Blade of Selves', as well...I only have one and that one is in a deck with my only Hydra Omnivore...talk about brutal! (cackles maniacally, then calms back down) Thanks so much for bringing the Fleet Swallower to my attention! Dimir is my favorite color combo, and that adds a powerhouse into the mix!

RobotCowhand on Xenagos - Hasty Beatdown

Since adding Rishkar's Expertise and Neheb, the Eternal they have both contributed to game wins. My most recent win, I generated 48 mana using Xenagos, God of Revels with Hydra Omnivore. Played Rishkar's Expertise, drew 16 cards, hit Seize the Day and it was swung in again with a 32/32 Hydra. GG on turn 6.

No problem man, here is what competitive Selvala looks like. My advice would be to make your list as close to this list over time, and of course what you feel comfortable with $$.

Some things that immedietly stood out to me that have no place in a competitive deck are: Archetype of Endurance, Argothian Elder, Colossus of Akros, Elvish Piper, Forgotten Ancient, Garruk's Horde, Genesis Hydra, Greenweaver Druid, Gyre Sage, Heroes' Bane, Hydra Broodmaster, Hydra Omnivore, Karametra's Acolyte, etc (I give up, I'd be typing a lot of cards.

Not trying to bash your deck at all, I'm just trying to make a point that competitive is a whole other beast :) What you have now may work for you and thats totally fine. Competitive Selvala however looks like the list I linked, and can win as soon as she can make mana which can be turn 3-5 consistently.

Consider me overboard for giving you more suggestions but I have a soft spot for selvala. When I first started playing commander selvala was my first deck. It was a crappy deck but I made it better over some time.

Anyways some other cards that I went home to look up and find in decks/binders you might want to look at

Growing Rites of Itlimoc I finished opening a booster box of ixalan and I pulled this. I put this in my tribal elves deck but im not sure how it would do here. try it out maybe it will be good

Asceticism The problem with playing against control decks is that they often kill/take your biggest threats on the board. but having this prevents it. and if someone board wipe you can regenerate them

Praetor's Counsel in commander many people will have boardwipes. Many will manipulate your hand/deck. this card ensures that whatever you lose comes right back and you can draw as many cards as you want

Triumph of the Hordes this is pretty much an instant win in most cases. Give all your 10/10 and 12/12 another +1/+1, trample, and infect...goodnight

Shamanic Revelation draw a bunch of cards, gain a bunch of life, seems dec :D

Craterhoof Behemoth Another one of those game winning cards. if you have a 12/12, all your other creatures get 12/12 and trample...goodnight

Hydra Omnivore overall board damage

Worldspine Wurm 15/15 trampler turn into 3 5/5 tramplers

Sylvan Primordial tutor for lands and get rid of opposing threats

Ancient Ooze not a big creature but it can destroy your opponents major threats

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon Good board removal overall with low cost threats and can get rid of chump blockers. And can refill your hand while playing your biggest threats

Collective Voyage fun card to play. search for an abundance of lands while playing kind of a group hug early on. These kinds of things make people wanna target you less so you can build up without having to mostly worry about an enemy on your back

See the Unwritten freecast a card from the top 8 of your library

Burgeoning good way to dump out your lands early on

Early Harvest I was comparing this with omnath and i realized that this can be a big threat if omnath is on the board. if you decide not to run omnath i would not run this but just a neat little combo

Ground Seal Great if your playing against reanimator. just shuts them down

Spring Cleaning one of my most favorite decks that i play with currently is a karametra enchantress deck. it is very prison control heavy and filled with enchantments. so cards like this can really ruin my day. just kinda figure out who plays what at your table

Genesis Wave if you build up a lot of mana, you can cast this with x being 10 and can usually get 3-5 things out. even if it is not as high as 10, it is still a good card

Hope these cards will help you to. If you want to swap out some cards, feel free to ask what to swap i might help
