Mistcutter Hydra Discussion

Seems like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would work well in this deck.Maybe Genesis Hydra to get 2 creatures onto the battlefield in one go and semi-tutor it out of your deck, especially if you get the X cost over 6 mana or so, although admittedly Genesis Hydra makes for poor synergy with Doubling Chant.

If speed is your issue, you might consider Mistcutter Hydra as it can be played at virtually any point in the game and it has haste, so it doubles as an early game beater-downer or a late game bomb.

Mistcutter Hydra is better than Wurmcalling because it has haste

I think a Mistcutter Hydra might work well with your synergy. I run one in my deck similar to yours and he never disappoints ;). At least a 2 drop that can't be countered and protection from blue!

If it's just casual and you're teaching him how to play, I'd suggest starting out with a really basic G/x deck. There's a lot of really low-cost cards that are powerful, but not really good in Legacy, available. Playing something with good mana ramp, strong removal, and value creatures will go far.

I'd suggest something like:

8x Llanowar Elves/Fyndhorn Elves/Arbor Elf/Elvish Mystic
4x Nature's Lore/Rampant Growth
4x Sylvan Primordial
4x Regrowth
4x Lightning Bolt
4x Incinerate
4x Ghor-Clan Rampager
4x Mistcutter Hydra
24x Lands

Sword of the Paruns and Umbral Mantle go infinite with your commander and a creature with 4+ power on the field. As for creatures to spend it on, there's Hydra Broodmaster, Mistcutter Hydra, Endless One, Hooded Hydra Genesis Hydra and more. Also, a couple personal favorites, Archetype of Endurance and Spearbreaker Behemoth for protecting your creatures. Hope this helps!

I'll consider Panglacial Wurm, since it is pretty much a free beater and it would be really funny T1 with Evolving Wilds, and also the occasional problem I face is not having a fatty in my hand.

Mistcutter Hydra I may actually consider, but as you said, built-in Trample is important for this deck.

As for the group hug cards, I think they're better with Karametra since you are able to use them to your advantage more than me, Xenagod does have some ramping, but that's mainly in order to cast him and fatties a turn or two earlier. Karametra as a commander has sparked some interest in me, but I already have this and another deck in the making, so I'll have to wait for a bit before trying to make a deck around her. :)

Flagellum on Fatty Face-Smashing

Like I said, may not be optimal :p I'm constantly reviewing budget decks/options and then build up from there.

I pulled those from my Karametra deck which utilizes the group hug cards like Horn of Greed much more often than my opponents. Or cards like Tireless Tracker which banks on land drops that can happen 2-3 times a turn with Karametra :) I realize the differences between the deck's but we both play fatties and both need card draw for ramp.

I also opted for creatures that naturally had trample so I didn't have to rely on Primal Rage and co. Terra Stomper and others are pretty vanilla, but an 8/8 trample that can't be countered for 6 isn't asking for much when we're running . I do run in a meta that is counter happy so I don't take it for granted (Although, Mistcutter Hydra may be a better option in that regard). I was just mainly spit balling here :) If you searched through your deck on a regular basis like I do with Karametra, I'd recommend Panglacial Wurm simply for the wtf factor lol. A surprise 9/5 trample which with Lord Xenagos could become an 18/14 trample with haste.
