Mistcutter Hydra is not a good mainboard card
Hydra Broodmaster is much better in the mainboard
Mistcutter Hydra will eat your deck up man! :(
I love the Circle of Flame /Scouring Sands combo with Polymorphist's Jest but creatures with +1/+1 counters on them can be a real pain! I would consider AEtherspouts to try and counter act any kind of swarm with creatures with counters on them or a hydra attack.
Consider Spite of Mogis in the s/b just to try and deal with a late-game hydra or other aggro creatures.
Otherwise +1! Great Deck :)
I'd definitely look at Krosan Verge . It's a nice little landfall pump.
I don't know how you feel about Spike Feeder
but it has synergy with some of the cards in your deck.
Seeing as there's a bit of a token subtheme what are your thoughts on Mitotic Slime ?
Personally, I'm not a fan of creatures that cost 6 or more that pretty much only attack. In here it includes Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer
, Allosaurus Rider
and even Mistcutter Hydra
. I was going to include Primordial Hydra
but it grows every turn so at least it has that going for it.
I might look for space for Eternal Witness
too. The recursion is just too valuable, even if it's just a ramp spell or something.
I'm growing to like Karametra as a commander and it's decks like this that really do it for me. +1
This is by no means a budget option, but you may consider splashing Red for Domri Rade , Xenagos, The Reveler , Ogre Battledriver , and / or Goblin Rabblemaster . All in all I feel that such a deck fares much better against control / MBD / other decks with a lot of removal. I have piloted one since M15 came out to pretty good success: Biodriver's Last Stand (2nd at Gameday).
Without splashing another color, I really like Chord of Calling here as Convoking with your Hornets is pretty sick, plus grabbing a Hornet Nest or Hornet Queen at instant speed is an awesome trick. Could also be used to fetch Master Biomancer or Paragon of Eternal Wilds depending on the situation. I would also want one more Prophet of Kruphix since git gives the Hornets pseudo-vigilance and is another great cog for Convoking.
You could probably cut Obelisk of Urd since there's not much to name besides Insect, and you already have plenty of ways to pump those.
Finally, I would definitely cut down a lot of the counterspells in the side and remove Stain the Mind . Some ideas would be AEtherspouts , Back to Nature , Simic Charm , Ranger's Guile / Mizzium Skin , Bident of Thassa , Mistcutter Hydra , and Boon Satyr .
I wouldn't main-board the Kalonian Twingrove ... With all your mana ramp, you can often play it too early for it to be as powerful as expected. It isn't uncommon at all for me to play it as a 3/3. The only nice thing is the token, but even then I would rather main-board Mistcutter Hydra for haste. Also would recommend Nylea, God of the Hunt . Not only is she a 6/6 when active as a creature, but she also gives all of your other big creatures trample. Garruk, Caller of Beasts is a great way to find creatures, though he falls off soon so I don't know if you want to bother working him in. Chord of Calling and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard are also great ways to pull specific creatures. Side-boarding a Hornet Queen or two might not hurt for match ups with flying, though I don't know if you'd want to include it or not since you already main-board Arbor Colossus .
MTGNoobs in response to Sylvan Caryatid being better than Voyaging Satyr due to hexproof, I would be more than happy if my opponent Doom Blade s or Hero's Downfall s my Voyaging Satyr insteady of my Polukranos, World Eater . And I understand what you're saying about having Kiora's Follower for the same effect as Voyaging Satyr , but you really want to have that effect as much as possible. A late game Sylvan Caryatid equates to one mana, a late game Kiora's Follower or Voyaging Satyr equates to another Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx activation, and that could be huge.
I think Genesis Hydra is strictly better than Mistcutter Hydra game one, as he can really grow your board and make one-for-one removal spells seem sad for your opponent. The ability to Genesis Hydra into a Prime Speaker Zegana is real and amazing. And with Voyaging Satyr and Kiora's Follower , you could easily hit a Genesis Hydra for 35 on turn 4 or 5.
I love Kiora, the Crashing Wave , she is just one of my favorite magic characters and cards. But I don't think you want her for this deck. This deck wants to explode and put fatties on the board. If you can get her, I think Nissa, Worldwaker is much better here. Turning your lands into additional threats is awesome. And untapping your forests can be very relevant when you're comboing off.
I copied your deck and massaged it into what I would do. I didn't do much with the sideboard because I figured you could do that according to the meta you expect. I'm really getting no benefit out of this other than the feeling of helping another magic player, so you should take a look at it and do some play testing with it.
If you look at the card costs and land mana graph you will notice that there is a large difference there, and you have 5 cards that actually use black mana
Typhoid Rats , which you could replace with more Sedge Scorpion Xathrid Slyblade which for the price of using black mana, doesn't accomplish anything special compared to something like Hornet Nest which can synergize with something like the Paragon of Eternal Wilds Indulgent Tormentor is very similar in that you could replace those with Heroes' Bane or Genesis Hydra Eternal Thirst which looks like it really accomplishes nothing at allI understand you like Garruk but you could cut down this deck to be just a splash of black in a ramp focused green deck
Also you have a lot of 1 of's, which can lead to inconsistency in draws, it is better to have a smaller amount of really reliable creatures rather than a bunch of separate ones, which will leave you in different situations every game.
I would suggest dropping the Typhoid Rats Xathrid Slyblade Indulgent Tormentor Eternal Thirst due to them making mana harder I also suggest removing Golden Hind because they are awful, Undergrowth Scavenger because this deck already isn't a graveyard deck, Karametra's Acolyte because you should already have enough Elvish Mystic or Satyr Wayfinder or Sylvan Caryatid by turn 4 to ramp up into bigger creatures by turn 4
to replace those 10 cards, you should probably add 2 more Satyr Wayfinder and Sedge Scorpion , at least 1 more Hornet Nest and Sylvan Caryatid and Paragon of Eternal Wilds because if all you have is green creatures remaining this buffs all of them and tramples your giant dudes, another Genesis Hydra , another Deadly Recluse because they are just really solid, Heroes' Bane as discussed
Well Chris that's me trying to help but you might find it a bit arrogant, I understand that.
