Mistcutter Hydra Discussion

Pretty cool Commander deck! I love the use of hydras and devotion. You should also look into Primordial Hydra and Mistcutter Hydra.

There's very little blue in my playgroup so Mistcutter Hydra isn't very useful. Genesis Hydra is on my list of things to find room for already.

i second Delta-117 on the Mistcutter Hydra and Genesis Hydra. Genesis can basically pull out any non hydra creature if you get enough mana. mistcutter is just great for quick kills on blue players

Quicksilver on Counterspell is for boys, Karador is for MEN

Mistcutter Hydra is the ultimate anti-blue card.

Agreed TheDevicer. I've faced many a blue player, and there are a lot of ways to deal with mono-blue decks. However, not knowing more about the player, their skill levels, their current local meta game, their collection, or even what deck their playing, I was just suggesting a strategy and providing some samples to kick start the conversation. Are Great Sable Stag and Mistcutter Hydra great cards? No. But since both cards are under a dollar each, they are an affordable start and .

Yes, limiting a blue player's options in one strategy. So is overwhelming the player with more threats than they can counter. Another tactic is pushing that turn clock faster than the blue player wants to run. For example, swinging each turn with a Slith Firewalker or Taurean Mauler or similar creature that keeps getting bigger. And I can't think of a blue player that hasn't hated me dropping a Teferi's Puzzle Box on the table. There goes planning anything long term.

My Pacifism deck gives players all kinds of trouble. In the early game blue players defend me because I have more Wrath effects and creature control. Later in the game, they turn on me because I'm screwing up their strategies too.

It comes down to a lot of factors, but as a jump off point for a discussion, I didn't think that Great Sable Stag and Mistcutter Hydra were bad choices.

As a long time blue player, if you cast Great Sable Stag and Mistcutter Hydra vs me, I'm 100% ok with that. Seriously. What are you doing? Putting me on a 5 turn clock? At turn 3 to 5 or something? And that's being generous.

Nah mate. Instead of trying to put down resilient threats, you need to manage my ability to play the game. That's how you shut down a blue player.

I agree with MagicalHacker. I think Surrak Dragonclaw would be a much better commander to kill off Azami. Green and red both have a lof of 'can't be countered' creatures. Consider Great Sable Stag and Mistcutter Hydra, pro blue and it's gonna hit the table. Also gets you Vexing Shusher and Treetop Village.

Don't forget to look at things like Stranglehold and Ugin's Nexus to negate the extra turns. Consider Boseiju, Who Shelters All to force things like Wrath of God or Curse of the Swine to help negate some of his cards. AEther Flash could help kill his creatures. Banefire for direct damage.

I think you have a lot of options if you don't go for a blue vs blue matchup.
