Hydra's Growth Discussion

It is generally a good idea to choose cards that best work in your planned deck and stick with multiples of those cards. Having singles of good cards really does nothing because you will have a small chance of drawing them.

Looking at your deck, 2 strategies stand out - being able to add to the attack power of creatures and being able to attack with unblockable creatures.

Yes, using the effect of Phase Dolphin, or Mistford River Turtle to get in some attacks that can't be blocked can be a great strategy. The problem is the cmc of cards in your combinations and the amount of time that you need to set up combos. I would tend to stick with Phase Dolphin to allow unblockable attacks by Lorescale Coatl and Thieving Otter.

You then need to speed up your card draw and play speed of your deck. Growth Spiral will work to get extra draws and thin down your deck, increasing your chances of drawing the cards that you want. Primal Empathy can build on creature power or card-draw. Keep Safe gives you some protection from your opponent's spells, but also helps with a bit of card draw.

I would want Moss Viper for early creature presence and Maraleaf Pixie for early mana-ramp.

For me, the cherry on the top of this delight would be Hydra's Growth which will give you ridiculously large attacking creatures, very quickly.

That is 9 core cards. 4 of each and a land-base built to support them, should give you a very strong deck.

Life's Legacy is great, I’d suggest more of those sort of cards. Maybe Greater Good? Invigorating Surge is fun, but no Hydra's Growth? Love the design, though. Great deck.

On second thought, generally speaking, Wildwood Scourge won't be the target of Hydra's Growth. You want to put that on Barkhide Troll or Stonecoil Serpent. I got into a locked battle between a crapload of multiplying 1/1 tokens against my doubling Barkhide Troll + Glowstone Recluse. I could have easily won quickly if it had trample. In this case. Wildwood Scourge came too late, and it was practically useless. If it was Pridemalkin, I could have won due to trample. Basically, trample is more valuable in this deck than a single other creature that adds a constant number of counters per turn. I'm going to put Pridemalkin back in.

I noticed you have 8 copies of Setessan Training :) Not sure if that’s intentional

Maybe Hydra's Growth or Destiny Spinner to fill those spots?

Hydra's Growth is probably a better long-term card for the game, synergizes well with Pridemalkin, but Invigorating Surge is a good card for when you're in a jam.

Hey, Thanks for the input Original. I've had Scavenging Ooze in from the start amazing card and works so well. What do think to Hydra's Growth vs Invigorating Surge?

Chandra's Ignition is a great way to end aboard stall and Archetype of Aggression will also help your hydras get through. Hull Breach and Clan Defiance will all give you a bit more removal And Evolution Sage and Hydra's Growth will both help with your counters.
