Managorger Hydra Discussion

Pathbreaker Ibex makes for a good face-smashing buffer, along with Overwhelming Stampede and Triumph of the Hordes. I also feel as if Concordant Crossroads should go in here as well.

It appears as if you are going for a +1/+1 counter approach, in which case, I will suggest Hardened Scales. Managorger Hydra and Avatar of the Resolute work as well, along with Kalonian Hydra.

I feel as if you should put in a few more mana dorks. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is probably one of the best options for a deck like this, but she's a little on the expensive side mainly because of how easily she can go infinite. Somberwald Sage and Shaman of Forgotten Ways work as well. You also can consider Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger if you're willing to spend a bit more for a mana doubler.

Enduring Scalelord seems bad with no synergy and seems like a bad threat. Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker seems like a glorified worse Managorger Hydra

I like this commander a lot.

You might play up the +1/+1 counter synergies with a Hardened Scales and a Winding Constrictor for now and invest in a Doubling Season later if you like the deck.

Mycoloth, Scute Mob, several hydras (like Managorger Hydra, and Varolz, the Scar-Striped are all good counters-matter cards. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, gives counters, too, as does Unspeakable Symbol.

You might also explore a sacrifice and make-others-sacrifice for counters sub-theme with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest. I work on a similar list at Mazirek Counters.

Regardless, you might want to run Cauldron of Souls so that if you board-wipe, you can bring your creatures back, add +1/+1 counters to ditch the Persist -1/-1 counters, and wipe/cauldron again.

Happy brewing!

Enemyinsid3 on Kitchen table deck help?

this is the deck I need help with.I just wanna make it better. It was loosely based on managorger hydra back in Origins.

Winding Constrictor and Managorger Hydra seem like they would be really good in the deck.

Thanks for the replies.

Hyperalgialysis - I am not super keen on playing dredge just because the cards are not good by themselves (i.e: you wouldn't cast Stinkweed Imp) and stuff like Grisly Salvage fuels the graveyard with other bonuses i.e: getting a creature or land. I am also not keen on transforming the deck into a reanimator shell, as the inclusion of reanimation spells and/or large targets would entirely switch the game plan and not support the exploration theme. So thanks for the suggestions but I don't think I wil implement them.

Boza - that is a very fair point about explore being a weak graveyard feeder I am probably better off trying to go for counter strategies. I think Hardened Scales would be a great inclusion, but Managorger Hydra and Scavenging Ooze strike me as better sideboard inclusions. Path of discovery is strong, but the mana cost means that it won't be in effect until turn 5 by which time I will have already set up a strong board state and seems fairly 'win-more'. I might fit in a copy or two for longer matches but in general I am hesitant.

I feel that explore is kind of weak in terms of feeding the graveyard - 1 card at best per card played is a terrible rate and you have to resort to Grisly Salvage to get anywhere.

Maybe just focus on the counters part and add stuff like Managorger Hydra or Scavenging Ooze. If that is the case, 4 Hardened Scales would be good.

And of course, adding 4 Path of Discovery seems obligatory.

I dig counters decks (I run a BG one over at Mazirek Counters).

Bow of Nylea, Gyre Sage, Managorger Hydra, Mycoloth, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, and Spawning Pit might all be fun to test here along with a Craterhoof/Ibex effect.

Have fun brewing!
