Mistcutter Hydra Discussion

DragonzBane on Seeing Green

Thanks for the suggestions StoryArcher!I also didn't like Kalonian Tusker, it felt bad. So I replaced it with Mistcutter Hydra.

Not sure about Ulvenwald Tracker... but I think I like it over Prey Upon.

For a beginners deck this looks promising. I too like mono-green/gruul decks the most. I'll list a few cards I've found to be pretty effective against any meta, as they are all tackling some of the more common adversaries.

All depends on what your LGS is playing, but those should get you started.

These are probably bad suggestions but they work well against anything Control oriented and neither are pricey Gaea's Revenge Mistcutter Hydra

Hey Vaan,

Thanks for the feedback!! I definitely appreciate it, but if you don't mind could you explain the Elvish Mystic and Khalni Hydra ? I understand why you would want them, but still.. by removing Elemental Bond and Triumph of Ferocity I'd get rid of all possible card draw and I'd end up topdeckking in a matter of a few turns. Also Kalonian Tusker as a card on its own cannot hope to compare to Khalni Hydra, but it does provide a bit of early game body to the board which would be lacking without it, no? Not trying to discredit your advice, I just need a little more in depth explanation.

Also, thanks for pointing out Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, I didn't even know that card existed! And you are totally right regarding Mistcutter Hydra. I appreciate your help man, I hope you have time to reply.

rjphilla thank you, Mistcutter Hydra is not what you want as a late game plan, not enought stats, not evasive enought and there is Groundbreaker for last damage push. I think Dungrove Elder is better for late game, better stats per cmc and more evasive.

Absolutely love this deck and my only suggestion would be a Mistcutter Hydra It's just awesome and gives you a small late game if needed

I would cut all 8 enchantments from your deck to add 4 Hardened Scales and 4 Elvish Mystic. All Kalonian Tusker does is trigger evolve so i would cut it for Khalni Hydra or Heroes' Bane if budget is a concern. Consider adding some copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Green Sun's Zenith to the deck.

Mistcutter Hydra deserves some slots on your sideboard.

StoryArcher on Simic Infinite Counters Combo deck ...

3 weeks ago

Good day, all. I have a core concept that I'd really like to turn into a competitive Modern deck if its possible.

(EDIT: if you wish, you can view my updated deck here - Simic Counter-Combo)

These are the primary cards:


(Leech Bonder + Paradise Mantle + Hardened Scales + Fathom Mage will allow infinite draws as well, but I'm not automatically including it due to its higher casting cost and the fact that it would be a bit redundant with the Sage of Hours combo.)

So here's my quandary - how to turn that core of 20 cards into an effective and competitive deck strategy. I started off with the following:

Let's say I go with those - that leaves 12 slots. At the moment, some of the options I'm eyeing hardest are:

For card draw/counter creation (3):

For protection/disruption (8):

And then there are the 'X-Factor' cards, cards which could accelerate the combo like Summoner's Pact or give me alternate win conditions, like Helix Pinnacle or Sphinx's Tutelage. At this point I'm mentally dealing with a bit of 'option paralysis', so any and all help in sifting through the possibilities would be more appreciated.
