Mistcutter Hydra Discussion

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.
- Mistcutter Hydra
- Nature's Claim / Naturalize
- Vexing Shusher
- Relic of Progenitus
- Vines of Vastwood
All depends on what your LGS is playing, but those should get you started.

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.

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 = move counters as often as necessary
- Leech Bonder + Paradise Mantle + Devoted Druid = -1/-1 counters as necessary to keep the board clear
- Leech Bonder + Paradise Mantle + Hardened Scales = Infinite +1/+1 counters
- Leech Bonder + Paradise Mantle + Hardened Scales + Gyre Sage = Infinite green mana
- Leech Bonder + Paradise Mantle + Hardened Scales + Devoted Druid = Infinite -1/-1 counters and green mana
- Leech Bonder + Paradise Mantle + Hardened Scales + Sage of Hours = Infinite turns
(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):
- Cyclonic Rift
- Rune Snag
- Mana Leak
- Spell Pierce
- Turn Aside
- Swan Song
- Pact of Negation
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.
