Mistcutter Hydra Discussion
2 days ago
I have a similar deck I've been working on, though mine's super budgety and my mana curve isn't exactly a curve, but it works.
Maybe Ring of Kalonia in place of Forced Adaptation? Also, Mistcutter Hydra is nice, though for the same cost Protean Hydra can grow pretty well and combo with Bioshift. However, if the price doesn't bother you, I'd go with Primordial Hydra instead.

maybe Mistcutter Hydra, unless if you have a way to move those 1/1 counters off of the creature, its not doing much

Using Voyaging Satyr and Arbor Elf with Utopia Sprawl, Overgrowth, and Fertile Ground, you can get to 7+ mana rather quickly (as fast as turn 3). At that point, you can just smack your opponent with a 6/6 Mistcutter Hydra or Primeval Titan.

Thanks for your input BenMonte Actually, I heavily debated on putting Mistcutter Hydra in to begin with, but opted for the Cavern of Souls so I could make all of my hydras immune to counter. I updated the deck (I still kept my Polukranos and added a couple Mistcutters because hydra<3) I also took Souljackers advice and decided to splash blue, and I think I'm definitely a little closer to a streamlined and more competitive deck. I'm aware that with as much personal flavor as I want to place in the deck, it won't be top tier.
Still undecided if I should just make a hydra deck specifically suited to it on it's own rather than trying to incorporate them. Either way, I very much appreciate you guys and tell me what you think of the updates!

Entire Maybeboard is on Puca and will be tested when they arrive.
Deck is running quite well, no major issues...just gonna test some new things mainboard.
Mistcutter Hydra might be added to handle the rise in blue decks in my meta (I feel partially to blame)
Sakashima the Impostor was one of my first ever rares, I regret trading him away all those years ago...he fits into my copy/permission/tempo nonsense build quite well.
Riptide Laboratory to abuse good wizard etbs in this deck, narrow but devastating when its relevant.
Kederekt Leviathan wishful thinking, but it would be nice to have more board wipes...though currently I recur Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, and AEtherspouts efficiently enough to demoralize/control the board.

The thing with modern is that it's just fast as balls. My local meta is 70% aggro decks, though I don't know what yours is like. Not putting anything scary or hindering on the table for 3 turns except for a few mana dorks usually means you'll be below 10 life before you can get your first hydra out. I've found Primal Command to be really useful, since it has so many modes to abuse. It can tutor up exactly what you need from your deck (so you don't need to run any big creature more than two times), it can get you 7 life (screw you, burn decks.), kill graveyard decks, or just outright annoy your opponent. I cannot stress enough how useful it is in a ramp deck, far more so than Genesis Wave. Couple it with Eternal Witness to drag the game out until you can bring your scary hydras to the field.
I think you might want to consider dropping the number of huge hydras, though. I mean, Kalonian Hydra is nice, but do you really need 4 of them? 2 broodmaster and 2 polukranos and 3 primetimes and a Craterhoof Behemoth? It's not that hard to find them in the deck if they're a bit smaller and number. Just imagine having a starting hand of nothing but hydras! D:
Of all the hydra cards I've tried in my ramp decks, Mistcutter Hydra is funnily enough the most efficient one I've tried by far. Haste and protection against blue and counterspells is crazy. Optional sideboard card, but definately consider it. Haste is a beautiful, beautiful thing in modern.

Primordial Hydra is awesome, Hooded Hydra summons tokens after it dies, and Mistcutter Hydra could be used in the sideboard or main board because of it's protection from blue. Essentially hydras are all about counters.Vigor is good as well. (The count was a pun).

Really don't like Mistcutter Hydra.
Tested a bit and lost twice while having a 999/999 hydra, simply because hydra lacks trample. There are just a billion better things to do with infinite mana.
I'd recommend going RUG with this, using Banefire as a wincon, and having bolt as utility (just like the good old twin days)
