cool deck! love mono green.
Hydra Omnivore is on theme.
also if you want more flying protection there is Spidersilk Armor.
and Triumph of the Hordes is an extra wincon...
and Beast Within is great removal...

Hey, in the future please link to the deck you would like me to look at. Nice Gaea's Cradle :)

Why is this your favorite deck of the three? Why Hydras with Nissa? Some Hydras are fine, but with many you risk disrupting the main game plan of Vastwood Seer of getting lands. When you're established in the mid to late game and can make lots of mana, that's when most Hydras become options to cast. Before that happens, in the early game, you want to focus on getting seven lands to have Animist.

The early game is more important with Nissa as Commander then the late game. Animist helps you in the mid and late game, but you can't get Animist's repeatable value unless you get a lot of lands in the early to mid game.

The strength of Vastwood Seer is being a three drop who can flip fast into Nissa, Sage Animist, only needing seven lands. Vastwood Seer is all about lands, consider more lands? More lands and Vastwood Seer can benefit from more cards that let you play additional lands per turn. Consider expanding on this for upgrades?

Nissa's Pilgrimage is nice with cards that let you play an additional land per turn. Crop Rotation is among the best land tutors in Commander for Cradle because it's a one drop, instant and puts the land onto the battlefield. Nature's Lore and Wood Elves search for and put a Forest onto the battlefield untapped.

Other cards to consider adding:

Avenger, Kalonian Hydra or End-Raze Forerunners can be a win condition interaction. Finale of Devastation where X=10 or more, tutor for Forerunners/Kalonian. You must have Avenger/Plants on the battlefield before you cast Finale that way Avenger/Plants get the +X/+X haste bonus. Unfortunately, can't tutor for Avenger with Finale and get the +X/+X haste bonus with all the Plants only with Avenger.

Good luck with your deck.

I run a Rafiq voltron deck and have this same issue (obv). Honestly the best solutions I've come up with are: get out multiple exalted triggers, including Rafiq, but attack with a fully loaded Hydra Omnivore. I can't always pull it off of course, but I've won with it in a single turn when people's life totals are already down.

The other is to include a lot of life gain and just take people out one by one. It works... some of the time. (I tried the Blade of Selves + Mirror Gallery combo but it's too slow / clumsy / requires too many pieces)

I picked up Godo, Bandit Warlord and Embercleave . Running out godo will allow you to attack for 48 trample with haste that leaves behind damage amplification if removed.

I'm at the point where the one-shot potential on this is so good that I'm cutting Hydra Omnivore for a Sylvan Tutor when the judge promo comes out.

I really like Soltari Guerrillas to be able to pick off annoying little creatures that opponents can tap to prevent from having to attack due to goad, Deathrite Shaman , Birds of Paradise , etc.

Maybe Hydra Omnivore ?

Myriad Landscape and/or Blighted Woodland , more ramp but on lands so you don't have to cut any spells.

Unbound Flourishing is a really good enchantment for this deck, especially regarding your X cost spells. Rhythm of the Wild and Ferocity of the Wilds will help your Hydras beat your opponent's face in even harder. Managorger Hydra , Hydra Omnivore , Polukranos, World Eater , Tibalt, Rakish Instigator and Sarkhan the Masterless are also good additions to the deck. Hungering Hydra , Primordial Hydra and Kalonian Hydra are also good Hydras for this deck. Rock Hydra should also be in here.

I love Hydras and I hope you take these into consideration!

Nice! Big smashy green is my favourite! Hydra Omnivore is an amazing card and something I 100% want to slot into my Volrath, the Shapestealer deck but not so much this one. It's a great card but I prefer to alpha strike a player, and also we play a lot of Kingdoms Variant (it's like Bang) in my meta so some of those cards aren't ideal for that.

EDH rocks, I hope you get into it :)

I love big, fair green decks too, haha. Wouldn't Hydra Omnivore be a shoe-in for this archetype, though? Or does it just die too often without impacting anything? (I don't play EDH but I'm planning to start with a deck similar to this)
