Mighty Emergence Discussion
10 months ago
itachi45, a previous version of this deck ran those cards actually. What I found was that Mayael's Aria and Mighty Emergence became a "win more" condition rather than helping the consistency. Where Ancients Tread I had taken out because I felt it was too mana expensive. But I haven't tried it with Enlisted Wurm , which could cheat it out. Thanks for the suggestions!

Interesting budget cards that interact with +1/+1 counters:
- Animation Module
- Curse of Predation
- Forgotten Ancient is marvelous if combined with all the other creatues that obtain free counters, like Managorger Hydra .
- Feast on the Fallen
- Increasing Savagery
- Loyal Guardian
- Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest
- Mighty Emergence
- Necropolis Regent
- Primeval Bounty if you have a good amount of noncreature spells.
- Rite of Passage
- Soul's Might

I have a deck vaguely similar to this one that uses Yisan, the Wanderer Bard as it its commander. If I had any suggestion to make, it would be that since you want to focus on hydras, put some more +1/+1 counter interactions in. You might like things like Mighty Emergence, Soul's Might, Nissa's Judgment, Hardened Scales, Inspiring Call, or Death's Presence. Also, since many hydras have an "X" in their cost, you can get more counters on them by having cards that reduce the cost, like Rhonas's Monument, Emerald Medallion, or Conduit of Ruin. Again, since most hydras are 0/0 and work off counters, a fun card to run with them is Gigantomancer, who would just give them +7/+7. There also some good hydras I'm not seeing here. Ones like Protean Hydra, Lifeblood Hydra, or Ulvenwald Hydra. I'm sure you have your reasons, but I'd consider those.
As for what's on the maybeboard, Hydra Broodmaster seems like an obvious choice for a hydra deck and I'm curious why you cut it, especially in a deck with this much ramp. Pathbreaker Ibex would do amazing work if you can guarantee at least two other big creatures attack along side it. Shamanic Revelation is a great source of draw and recovery since you're almost guaranteed to meat the ferocious requirement. Surrak, the Hunt Caller is another pick that has some real potential in this deck. The others I personally don't think much of.
Hope this helps

I took a look on the gatherer searching for cards with the text "power 5 or greater" and found a few cards that I think would be good for dinos.
Drumhunter, Exuberant Firestoker, Feed the Clan, Godtracker of Jund, maybe Mayael the Anima, Mayael's Aria, Mighty Emergence, Mycoid Shepherd, maybe Spearbreaker Behemoth, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Sunseed Nurturer, and Where Ancients Tread.

Not sure if you are still working on this but going to suggest stuff in case. Most of these will abuse the fact that you are playing high power/toughness creatures.
Mayael's Aria, Mighty Emergence, Sacellum Godspeaker, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Mage Slayer, Xenagos, God of Revels, AEther Rift, Angelic Chorus, Cream of the Crop, Defense of the Heart, Electropotence, Elemental Bond, Lurking Predators, Porphyry Nodes, Proper Burial, Warstorm Surge, Wild Pair

I mean, best case scenario this will be a green Bravo, King Value deck. Or maybe not?
This seems better in the 99 of an Anafenza, the Foremost, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Experiment Kraj +1/+1 style deck, but if you really want him as a commander Champion of Lambholt seems good, Cream of the Crop?, Dual Nature, Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor, Doubling Season, Durable Handicraft, Essence Warden, Herd Gnarr, Ivy Lane Denizen, Triumph of Ferocity, Elemental Bond, Mighty Emergence, Soul of the Harvest, Death's Presence, Fecundity, guttergrime, Lumberknot, Sultai Flayer.
There you go, ETB and death triggers.
