NV_1980 on Chorus of the Conclave; Hail Hydras!

Hi loclif,

Your deck contains several cards that generate tokens. I think your deck would fare better if you'd remove those and instead invest more into getting creatures that either generate counters or benefit greatly from them. There are several budget and non-budget ways of doing this. Here's some of the budget ways (they're not Hydra-themed, but suit your strategy very well):





  • Elemental Bond: because basically every creature you cast, is strong enough to allow you to draw a card.
  • Death's Presence: one monster's death, is another's power.
  • Hardened Scales: add a counter for whenever counters are added :)
  • Bow of Nylea: gives a whole host of options, one of which is adding +1/+1's.

Some less-budget (more expensive) options, would be:

Sorry for the long post. Hope you find some of this to be useful. Happy gaming!

Having tried to build something similar, I am still undecided between Merfolk friends and family, which slowly builds towards having unblockable land creatures with a heavy attack, and Pointed Ears which uses a mix of elves and merfolk to build an army of unblockable creatures. Your deck seems to be somewhere between these two decks but, somehow seems to be lacking synergy between cards.

Deeproot Champion seems to be a new Managorger Hydra and really wants to find a home in a control deck that contains lots of cheap instants and sorceries. I just don't see it doing much in an aggro creature-summon deck.

Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Herald of Secret Streams combine nicely, and could become rather mean if you could flicker Rishkar, Peema Renegade.

Tempest Caller is very situational and you need it in your hand at a critical stage in the game - which seems rather unlikely. At best it is a win-more card - if you have control of the field, your win might be more dramatic.

The challenge will be to identify weaknesses in this deck and find better alternatives (which may not be the same cards that I used in my version of this deck)

how about Managorger Hydra?

DarkHamlet on Why not Hydras?

Like that idea!

Just that is a great deck, you may test it and post their changes around your meta. +1 for you :D

I little suggestion: -4 Fury of the Horde for +4 Rough, -4 Generator Servant for +3 Managorger Hydra and +1 Polukranos, World Eater!

Looks very cool; however, I know from experience that Daghatar's 4 +1/+1 counter can be underwhelming. I recommend Corpsejack Menace, Cathars' Crusade, Forgotten Ancient, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Managorger Hydra, and Cauldron of Souls.

usaDiabetic thanks for the suggestions man!

I agree I could probably make some cuts to give Atraxa some shoes. I agree Path of Ancestry should also go in here, I will probably cut the the Scry for it. Trade tap for a tap. Vesuva I think would do about the same as the rest of the lands I have, there's really nothing in my group worth copying.

And a lot of the cards you recommended I've had in and are super strong but I have people who can win on turn 5 so I had to cut some of the slower stuff unfortunately. Astral Cornucopia was a bit to slow so Crystalline Crawler took its place. Prime Speaker Zegana was another card I couldn't utilize because I couldn't get it out fast enough. Hangarback will be something I playtest though. Managorger Hydra is strong but will die before I can beef him up. Corpsejack Menace is two more but does a little more for me than Constrictor.

I have Verdict as my wrath but Black Suns may take a slot here.

Do appreciate the suggestions, you've given me some stuff to think about haha

Path of Ancestry and maybe Vesuva for the mana base, maybe even Command Beacon.

I would probably put Astral Cornucopia in, insane ramp card for Atraxa.

I definitely recommend, Prime Speaker Zegana, Hangarback WalkerManagorger Hydra, maybe Winding Constrictor.

I also like Black Sun's Zenith, and even Wrath of God if you play in a creature or token heavy meta.

Either way sweet build, I love Atraxa......I tried not to recommend too many blue cards haha
