I agree that Kruphix goes well with Mistcutter, but I ultimately think it's unnecessary. I can generate enough mana for a hasty hydra kill with Nykthos and Kiora's Follower. Hooded Hydra I haven't tried yet, but when I get some Khans cards, I will try it out. I want to try to keep this at a minimum of 30 creature spells so stuff like Aqueous Form didn't make the cut. Make note of Genesis Hydra ; I want to have as many opportunities to grab a big dude as possible, and Hooded Hydra , Mistcutter Hydra , etc come in as 0/0's with G-Hydra. The red splash I'm still unsure of at this point. 80% of the people at my lgs have stated that they will be running Temur and I don't want to be another one. I wanna be the deck that no one else is running, and thus no one else is preparing for. A lot of people don't realize that if you really want to hurt me with a Thoughtseize , you need to make me discard Interpret the Signs . People severely underestimate that card and it can easily refill my hand after they waste all their Thoughtseize on Polukranos and Prophet. Interpret and G-Hydra basically nullify the effect of discard in this deck, it's great. Thanks for the suggestions guys! There are a lot of ways to abuse the ungodly amounts of mana, so I like hearing your guys' take on it.
Mistcutter Hydra is an X card mainboard one and see what happens with Kruphix, God of Horizon is onboard, i did that once to an opponent hehe attacked for 25/25 hydra with haste and pro blue it was hillarious....
If you're looking to design a tempo deck I would recommend reading this article on 'beats' as a primer: http://archive.wizards.com/Magic/magazine/article.aspx?x=mtgcom/feature/334
As it is, your deck looks closer to a midrange strategy than a tempo deck, which is fine if your goal is simply to land a bigger threat each turn. Many of the cards in here don't make much sense in midrange though, whilst others don't make a lot of sense in a tempo-generating deck. It all comes down to how you want to play the game.
I wouldn't worry too much about counter-based control being a dominant force in standard, since blue lost most of its power with Ravnica rotating. Expect the more controlling shells to play value creatures/planeswalkers, lots of hand-disruption/kill spells and probably be based in green. Mistcutter Hydra is not all kinds of impressive in that environment, you'd be much better off with Stormbreath Dragon for prot-white.

Lots of Stuff
Check my deck Temur's Rampage
I'm just going to start by saying I don't know what kind of deck you're going for, but what I recommend will make the deck smoother and more efficient than what you have here. If you're going for a certain kind of setup, then ignore what I have to say.
Okay, with that out of the way, you should never run removal in a deck like this. (Mizzium Mortars was the exception because it didn't hit your stuff.) If you Anger of the Gods you kill your own Elvish Mystic , Sylvan Caryatid , and Voyaging Satyr , which is a big no-no. Harness by Force also seems completely useless. Your creatures are bigger, why would you ever want to take their stuff except in a mirror matchup?
You don't need Genesis Hydra AND Chord of Calling . In my opinion, Genesis > Chord because of it's 2 for 1 potential. If you do run Genesis, take out anything in your main deck that isn't a creature or Planeswalker.
Take Stormbreath Dragon , Nylea's Disciple and Bow of Nylea out of the main. Bow is great in the sideboard, amazing actually. Nylea's should be a 4 of in the sideboard for agressive match ups. (I'd cut a singular Mistcutter Hydra by the way.) Stormbreath doesn't fit the theme of Green Devotion, but it's a great card against decks with sweepers or anything with white.
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx + Voyaging Satyr = Infinite Mana; I have absolutely no idea why you don't have at least a singular Nykthos. And even then, I'd run 4 just so you can guarantee it's explosive plays. (And if you draw a second with Courser of Kruphix , it's always a free point of life.)
Add some Wooded Foothills in. I know you can't afford them at the moment, but that doesn't mean you can't fine tune your deck for when you do get them. I'd go as far as to say to keep the Rugged Highlands if you're going to be running things with double red in the cost.
The rest are little touch ups: make sure Polukranos, World Eater is a 4 of. I'd add another Nylea, God of the Hunt , her pump effect and giving other creatures trample in itself is invaluable. Try to find room for at least 2 Arbor Colossus in the main, or side at the very least. They have HUGE value, especially with Nykthos. Cut a Xenagos, The Reveler , you don't need 4 but 3 is fine. I'd add in 2 Nissa, Worldwaker and/or Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker personally. You don't need more than 1 Hornet Queen , so either commit to it in the main or on the sideboard. Ranger's Guile is useless, replace it with 2 Setessan Tactics . You don't really need Phyrexian Revoker because quite frankly you can just smash their Planeswalkers. Reclamation Sage is fine, but Polis Crusher is also another good option.
I hoped this helped, I'm not trying to be invasive or anything but I feel these changes would smooth your deck out the most. A lot of these cards seem either too situational or just downright bad for a green deck.
Ah, I like this kind of deck a lot! There are a couple things I would consider doing differently. First, I noticed you are splashing red for the sole purpose of Kessig Wolf Run , which you only have 1 of in the deck. I think you could benefit more without it honestly!
All of this would allow you to take out things like Birds of Paradise , Burning-Tree Emissary , Elvish Mystic , Llanowar Elves , Kessig Wolf Run , Stomping Ground , Wooded Foothills , and Fertile Ground .
Then you could replace with more Forest for the Arbor Elf , things like Strangleroot Geist , Predator Ooze , and other scary creatures (Kalonian Hydra , Khalni Hydra , Primalcrux , Nylea, God of the Hunt , Genesis Hydra , Mistcutter Hydra against blue counter or others).
Check out my deck if anyone's interested in what the hell I'm talking about :D
good deck :) you inspired me to make similar deck :D BTW what about Mistcutter Hydra do you think will be good, like lifesaver? beause against mono B or deck with counter spells or returning to hand skulker is very weak. iam very sad about rotating Quicken because a combo with legacy is awesome :))
