Hi! You should probably add Mistcutter Hydra, its great if youre in a pickle. Also Overgrowth, definitely overgrowth. Good luck!

Thanks for the comments and suggestions, guys.

ArmoredTitan, I think Emzed nailed the way I feel about having Primal Surge in this deck. The way it's currently constructed it would be a real gamble with seven non-permanents in the deck.

You're right, Emzed, about Frontier Siege. That card is crazy in this deck.

Mistcutter Hydra is an idea, although Flash instead of Haste would make it an auto-include. I always need ways to dump mana in case Omnath gets the boot. As is, it would have to combo with Winding Canyons to serve that purpose if it's not my turn.

I have also found Mistcutter Hydra to be extremely effective, if you want to test it then be my guest!

  • RubyOrzhov: Best. Comment. EVER, man! Hahahah <3

  • **FierceTierce: Hey! Yes, it is right where I want it. I have to test it with 3x or just 2x Green Sun's Zenith, but the rest is pretty much balanced. I am waiting for something interesting to come out in the next sets, though. Thanks for the love!
    Also, you got that onion already! Don't you feel EMPOWERED?! Hahahah

  • Akinu: You are evil hahah

  • Xertious: Link your cards man! Nylea, God of the Hunt could indeed replace Avatar of the Resolute, although for that body and CMC, its slot may be that of Leatherback Baloth. I like the devotion I have, but this change would ultimately depend on the budget you have, and the choice of the pilot/brewer. Thanks for passing by!

  • Delta-117: I think it is overrated and not quite a good idea for this deck; he gives nothing that the other creatures already do give (Chancellor of the Tangle). But thanks for taking the time and comment :)

  • seshiro_of_the_orochi: Onion's dead. Sorry.
    Mistcutter Hydra is indeed good, and can take the slot of Avatar of the Resolute. Absolutely sick against control-blue.

I really like the concept you are going off of. I personally love green and find it to be super powerful. Personally I would be focusing on devotion, but that is because I started playing in born of the gods.

This being said, I think that Nylea's Disciple would be really cheap and really good, as well as Karametra's Acolyte.

I also would definitely find a place for and Mistcutter Hydra.

I also would be doing silly stuff with Garruk, Caller of Beasts. Looking at those cards and digging for creatures can be huge in this deck.

Also looking at your creatures, I would look strongly at Conjurer's Closet. This card would, A) get a creature untapped for you to be able to block after a full out attack, and B) it would reactivate a lot of those ETB triggers.

Also I may consider going with a few ramp things, such as bop and Sylvan Caryatid and then cutting down a few lands. To me 40 seems excessive in a mono green deck.

May be a bit expensive, depending where you get it from, but Kalonian Hydra is an excellent card for decks that buffs creatures to all hell (probably remove Acidic Slime, because frankly, it's too expensive mana wise), and to elaborate on huge creatures, Managorger Hydra is an excellent choice (remove Simic Keyrune because it's just taking up room that could be given to a much better card, or maybe Thought Vessel since you have Reliquary Tower. Also, to add to your sideboard in case an opponent has a lot of removal, Death's Presence is great for making your opponents' removal of creatures grind to a halt. You'd have to have some protection for it, granted, but with blue, that's relatively simple. I know that some of these are already on your maybeboard, but they are pretty awesome for these decks. Another great card to recommend is called Mistcutter Hydra. It's great because it can't be touched by blue counterspells, or any other color of counter spells. Yet another great card is Khalni Hydra. Based on all of the green creatures you have, you can throw him out for free and just annihilate the opposition. I realize that some of these cards are on your maybeboard, but they are just that good that they should be on the main. Hope this helps

NewHorizons on Kruphix, Simic, Flyers

3 weeks ago

Well I really like Kruphix but the way I like to built him is like a jujitsu master where I just have him built up mana and play lots of instants in the deck so I can respond to stuff at my leisure like Evacuation, Cyclonic Rift, AEtherize etc and lots of countermagic and then once I reach a critical mass I unleash some kind of heavy hitter like Mistcutter Hydra. In a multiplayer games this leads to great mind games because people will fear you even when you have nothing else going on but a Kruphix with some floating mana.Doubling Cube and Seedborn Muse are too good to pass up though (I don't know what your budget is etc).

That's just my personal preference though. What are you trying to do with this?

NewHorizons on Kru-si-phix

Mistcutter Hydra: A great way to kill folks with a big-ole mana dump from Kruphix. Since it's EDH people are more than likely going to play Blue. At least the ones you have to watch out for. Having some mana dump win-cons that you can flash out/have haste are pretty good here etc.
