Mistcutter Hydra Discussion

Indeed UrzaTheLord, that is why I have Master Biomancer and Rhonas the Indomitable. I am also going to sideboard a few copies of Mistcutter Hydra and possibly Avatar of the Resolute. Do you have any suggestions?

Unless the spell specifies otherwise, you can always choose 0 as a value for X. You can cast Mistcutter Hydra for if you want it to end up in your graveyard. You can even do this when you have a discount on the spell like Rhonas's Monument where paying could result in it entering with a counter, again if you really want it in your grave.

Could I cast Mistcutter Hydra by only tapping for the necessary green? Specifically can I leave X as 0, theoretically summoning but destroying the creature immediately?

Technically, you can put Mistcutter Hydra onto the battlefield with Genesis Hydra's ability but the Mistcutter's X will be 0, making it a 0/0 and it will be put into your graveyard as a state-based action.

If I cast Genesis Hydra and X equals 5, could I use its ability to cast Mistcutter Hydra by subtracting 1 from X to make Mistcutter's CMC 5 casting it for 4/4? Regularly X being 5 would make Mistcutter's CMC 6, but Genesis says X or less so I'm curious if I can manipulate X like that.

You may considerate take out Domri Rade 'cause the deck hasn't enought creatures.

A little suggestion:

-2 Cinder Glade, +2 Wooded Foothills, for improve untapped lands.

-2 Mutagenic Growth, +2 Vines of Vastwood, for better protection.

-2 Mountain, -2 Blossoming Defense, +4 Narnam Renegade, for early defense.

Move Mistcutter Hydra to Sideboard.

Good cards to considerate:

Raging Ravine, Llanowar Reborn, Rogue's Passage, Mold Adder, Young Wolf, Hardened Scales, Fog, Lightning Greaves

Byebye! :D

I will probably add another Kalonian Hydra, but Mistcutter Hydra only seems good as a sideboard against Blue/control decks. The thing I like about Protean Hydra is that its ability is a DTA (delayed trigger ability). So if I spend 4 mana on it with 2 Hardened Scales in play, it would enter the battlefield as a 5/5, right? (Could just as easily be 2 Winding Constrictor, or any combination of the two). Say I am able to block something with 3 power on my opponent's turn- then the 2 Hardened scales actually trigger separately for EACH +1/+1 counter removed, so that during their End Step, my Protean Hydra becomes a 14/14. Or I could simply remove a single +1/+1 counter from Walking Ballista on their end-of-turn, which with 2 Winding Constrictor in play would have exactly the same effect as I just detailed, making it able to attack as a 14/14. I would have to try it in some games first, but it seems doable.
