Managorger Hydra Discussion

You're missing a few big heckin cards.
Cephalid Constable is miraculously underrated, Drumhunter is a personal howling mine AND a mana dork, Elvish Visionary draws a card, Experiment One and Pelt Collector are excellent one-drops, Fertilid is awesome repeatable ramp, Forgotten Ancient is bat-shit insane with four players, Gilder Bairn is both adorable and quite functional, Glen Elendra Archmage is a repeatable negate, Kalonian Hydra is hilarious (and it's a 0/0 so I think you can trigger Ezuri's ability before his ETB), Kaseto, Orochi Archmage is a powerhouse, Managorger Hydra get too big too quickly for most opponents to handle, Novijen Sages is a nice draw engine, Permeating Mass is fantastic in this deck, Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Toothy, Imaginary Friend are such a good combo, Plaxcaster Frogling is great protection, Scavenging Ooze is awesome (Meren is in my meta, idk about you), Seedborn Muse is good anywhere, Simic Manipulator leads to fun shenanigans, Sporeback Troll, also good protection, Tuskguard Captain is perfect evasion, Ulvenwald Tracker is about as good as green removal gets, and Wild Beastmaster is another Cultivator of Blades, but a little less for a little less mana. Rishkar's Expertise and Soul's Majesty are a couple gems, Bred for the Hunt, Doubling Season, and Hadana's Climb Flip are great for countered up dudes, Rhystic Study, which should honestly go in every blue EDH deck, Cloudstone Curio it's better than Panharmonicon in this, Strionic Resonator is also probably better than Panharmonicon here. Also a Thran Dynamo might do ya good in the mana department.

Your mana curve peaks at 4 mana and you have Mirari's Wake, so it might be interesting to invest in 2-mana land ramp options, so you can cast your 4-drops on turn 3 to get your plan going. I suggest Nature's Lore and Farseek. Gyre Sage grow up and ramp quickly, while Rishkar, Peema Renegade can put the first counter on creatures so you can proliferate them and tap them for mana when needed. I would take out Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper (you need to hit someone to profit on her - she is better on a lifegain/token deck), Primal Amulet Flip (you don't have many essential sorceries to be copied) and Custodi Soulbinders (a really slow card) for them. // Orzhov Advokist serves double duty: she deters opponents from attacking you if they accept the offer, and also put counters on your creatures for free. Inexorable Tide is free proliferate while you cast your spells. Lim-Dul's Vault is a better tutor than Diabolic Tutor (maybe you should run both). // I would also upgrade the removal package to make it more versatile: Utter End instead of Sylvan Reclamation, Anguished Unmaking instead of Viridian Corrupter (if you want to win with infect, you have to fully commit to it), Abzan Charm (great versatility) instead of Mortify. Swan Song (better because cost less) or Arcane Denial instead of Mystic Confluence (5 mana is a lot to hold in a proactive deck). If you need even more removal, Beast Within and Swords to Plowshares are cheap ones to pick. // In terms of finishers, you could swap out Tuskguard Captain for Herald of Secret Streams. Odric, Lunarch Marshal has great synergy with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Champion of Lambholt, Managorger Hydra, Chasm Skulker and Cathars' Crusade require quick answer, or else they win you the game. // In the card advantage department, Bred for the Hunt, Path of Discovery (also create counters), Shapers of Nature (also create counters), Zameck Guildmage and Etched Oracle are repeatable draw while Rishkar's Expertise, Prime Speaker Zegana, Painful Truths and the aforementioned Abzan Charm are 1-shot card draw. I recommend replace Manifold Insights and Mirrorweave with Rishkar's Expertise and Prime Speaker Zegana. It is important to have about 10 ramp sources, 10 draw sources, 5 target removal and at least 3 boardwipes, and you should look for cards that can do more than 1 thing (like Abzan Charm) because they are the most versatile (therefore valuable) cards in your deck. // Guildmages' Forum is a strict upgrade over Opal Palace, because it can put counters on other creatures. I would also reduce the number of tapped lands in the deck, so you can reliably play something on turn 2. Blossoming Sands, Thornwood Falls, Tranquil Cove, Azorius Chancery, Dreadship Reef (doesn't provide colors right away) should be the first ones to be swapped. Some nice cards that enter the battlefield untapped are Caves of Koilos, Llanowar Wastes, Yavimaya Coast, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool, Bountiful Promenade, Sea of Clouds, Morphic Pool, Gavony Township, Watery Grave, Hallowed Fountain, Godless Shrine, Breeding Pool (the last 4 are all getting reprinted).

I know some of these are expensive but I mean you figure out if you want them or not ;)
You can look at a deck I have with other big creatures in case you're wondering: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/a-green-mans-deck/
I'm new to this whole feedback thing but one general thing I would try to do in your position is look at big creatures (specifically 6 drops) that have abilities unlike Primordial Wurm, Wild Ceratok, Tusked Colossodon, Alpine Grizzly and Colossal Dreadmaw. I know you can find better cards than all of those for the same mana cost... Just a question of doing a bit of research.

Life's Legacy is decent card draw if you don't mind loosing one of your dudes.
Avatar of the Resolute is a nice body that gets bigger from other creatures.
Managorger Hydra is a bomb if it gets some protection.
Deepglow Skate can double your fields worth of counters, this even works with planeswalkers. kinda spendy money wise though.
for protection: Heroic Intervention
