Normally, you would be correct. However, planeswalkers (among other permanents), enter the battlefield with their starting number of loyalty counters on them, regardless of which zone they enter the battlefield from.
Take Mistcutter Hydra and Kalonian Hydra. No matter how Kalonian Hydra enters the battlefield, it will enter with 4 +1/+1 counters. On the other hand, if you were to Cloudshift Mistcutter Hydra, then it would die from SBA's as soon as it entered the battlefield again (because it wasn't cast, so an x value couldn't be declared, so is automatically zero).

giesemo I'm taking your advice and putting Chord of Calling into my main board, as well as adding Sylvan Caryatid and swapping Hooded Hydra and Mistcutter Hydra, plus a few other minor tweeks. Hoping to play sometime this weekend to see how it goes. Thx!

Mistcutter Hydra is awesome because he comes in with Haste! And its only like $1 a print. I love it in my BG deck.

This is how I would suggest gearing the deck: (makes it mono green though)
2x Bow of Nylea
1x Genesis Hydra1x Heroes' Bane2x Hooded Hydra
1x Hydra Broodmaster3x Karametra's Acolyte 3x Mistcutter Hydra2x Primordial Hydra
1x Protean Hydra4x Solidarity of Heroes 3x Sylvan Caryatid3x Tuskguard Captain

Chord of Calling needs to be main boarded take out one Arbor Colossus and one Voyaging Satyr. Sylvan Caryatid is a much better option then elvish mystic because of that 0/3 body can block well. swap Hooded Hydra and Mistcutter Hydra. Cut one Genesis Hydra for one more Polukranos, World Eater

Also I would have 2 Mistcutter Hydra in the Sideboard to switch out against people playing blue.

Went 3-1 at FNM.
vs Homebrew Jeskai: 2-0 - Not sure what was going on here, an attempt at a Jeskai Agrro but with too many slow creatures. Quick 2-0, didn't bother to sideboard.
vs MonoRed Aggro: 2-0. Game 1 the opponent got off to a slow start, was able to clear the field with Polukranos Monstrosity. Game 2 I sided in Nylea's Disciple, Hornet Nest, and one Ajani Steadfast, taking out Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Hornet Queen, and a Banishing Light. He got out of the gate faster game 2, but I was able to stabilize with 3 Nylea's Disciple on turns 4, 5, and 7. Closed it out with a double Doomwake Giant activation.
vs Esper Control: 0-2. The player ran control, one-for-one'd my large creatures and planeswalkers, Drown in Sorrow'd my mana dorks. Decked both times by Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver. Really missed not having Mistcutter Hydra in my sideboard.
vs Gruul Monsters: 2-1. Some of the best games of the night. Game one I pulled out with the help of Doomwake Giant. Game two I sided in Hornet Nest, Thoughtseize and Stain the Mind to deal with Stormbreath Dragon, siding out an Elvish Mystic and Banishing Light. Unfortunatelly, I mana screwed bad. Game three started off with me thoughtseizing out his Stormbreath Dragon turn one, then went almost to a mirror, both of us playing Sylvan Caryatid into Hornet Nest into Polukranos, World Eater the following turns. From there we started dropping planeswalkers, and Elspeth was superior to Chandra and Xenagos.
