Mistcutter Hydra Discussion

Diabolic Edict totally isn't legal in modern.. neither is Pernicious Deed actually.

I think some combination of Metallic Mimic with less Animation Module would be real strong. It just floods the board with 2/2s for all the mana you have. Also, Avatar of the Resolute should likely be an auto include.

Mistcutter Hydra is probably best in the sideboard as maybe a 2 of. Primordial Hydra, although stupid strong, often just doesn't cut it in modern. He's maybe still worth a try, but I'd stick around that 2 mark. Managorger Hydra might benefit extremely from some phyrexian mana spells like Dismember or Mutagenic Growth just to instantly negate lightning bolts flying at it.

Are you set on green and black? It could go either way (Mono-Green or B/G); you definitely get better removal with black and maybe Winding Constrictor.

If you're having a lot of trouble against blue players, Mistcutter Hydra is a great card to keep around in case you need to board it in.

Thanks for the suggestions. The reasoning behind no Mistcutter Hydra is it lacks the above curve stats the other creatures have. It will always pack one less power and toughness than the amount you pay for it, and cards like Steel Leaf Champion pack much more value and a quicker finish. Khalni Hydra wouldn't work too well in this deck because this deck isn't necessarily trying to generate a large amount of creatures but high-value hard-hitting creatures, so it's gonna cost four or five mana most of the time, and this deck is trying to win by turn four or five. As for Ghalta, Primal Hunger, I may have to test it out. This deck can get Ghalta down on turn four on a very consistent basis, which in any matches where the opponent doesn't counter or remove it, you get an easy turn five win. This deck already gets turn four and five wins though, so I don't know how beneficial it will be.

I've always loved the idea of Mono-Green Stompy in modern. May I suggest Khalni Hydra for quick finishes and Mistcutter Hydra for sideboard?

Mistcutter may seem like an odd choice but you wouldn't be investing too much mana into it mainly using it for that haste and blue immunity

Ha, I always like seeing off-color decks. Not totally sold on Beastcaller Savant--as a 2-mana 1/1 in a mono-green deck, what does it offer? If you want more meat, maybe Mistcutter Hydra or Boggart Ram-Gang; if you want acceleration, basic dudes like Arbor Elf or Llanowar Elves give you a 1-drop.

List seems fun, though I would probably add some stuff. Experiment One and Strangleroot Geist would be pretty sweet in this list, throw a duo of Mistcutter Hydra into the sideboard. Solidarity of Heroes would also be really funny as a one of. Might do some scouring on Gatherer later, but that's what's off the top of my head.

I did check out Hardened Scales, but when you're getting 5-10-20 counters at a time with Primordial Hydra, the one extra doesn't seem to affect too much. Things like Endless One and Mistcutter Hydra are really good, especially late game, but they don't ramp as much as I'd like. Kalonian Hydra does seem nice though.

Gotta love hydras. I did a video on a hydra deck if you want to check that out, if not here is the tldr: Gyre Sage is bonkers, Hardened Scales good combo, "one drop hydras" will always be the right manacost: Mistcutter Hydra, Protean Hydra, Feral Hydra, and though not in the video Endless One is good too.

If you end up liking the modern format, I've got a podcast all about wacky deck brews if you want to check it out
