Nylea, God of the Hunt Discussion

Here are some cards that I might immediately cut:

Academy Elite, Aeon Chronicler, Bloodbraid Elf, Bogardan Hellkite, Breaker of Armies, Dragon Mage, Flameblast Dragon, Hamletback Goliath, Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip, Horizon Chimera, Hypersonic Dragon, Inkwell Leviathan, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Keranos, God of Storms, Kruphix, God of Horizons, Lorescale Coatl, Magus of the Future, Melek, Izzet Paragon, Memnarch, Mindwrack Liege, Murkfiend Liege, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Psychosis Crawler, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Quicksilver Gargantuan, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Scute Mob, Servant of the Conduit, Shipbreaker Kraken, Simic Sky Swallower, Somberwald Stag, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Spellheart Chimera, Surrak Dragonclaw, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Thassa, God of the Sea, Thromok the Insatiable, Tireless Tracker, Verdant Force, Vexing Shusher, Wall of Blossoms, Whisperwood Elemental, Wistful Selkie, Xenagos, God of Revels, Clan Defiance, Crater's Claws, Devastation Tide, Minds Aglow, Mizzix's Mastery, Reforge the Soul, Release the Gremlins, Seismic Stomp, Shamanic Revelation, Sylvan Scrying, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Unexpected Results, Urban Evolution, Volcanic Vision, Wheel of Fate, Arcane Denial, Clip Wings, Counterflux, Counterspell, Cyclonic Rift, Desertion, Disallow, Disdainful Stroke, Evacuation, Heroic Intervention, Insidious Will, Krosan Grip, Naturalize, Negate, Plasm Capture, Sulfurous Blast, Trap Essence, Turn Aside, Unsubstantiate, Visions of Beyond, Void Shatter, Voidslime, and TBH there are simply too many things to cut to list them all because my fingers are getting tired. I'd cut most of your planeswalkers, most of your non-ramp artifacts, and most of your enchantments.

My primary piece of advice here is that 1) You really should choose to prioritize abusing creatures OR spells, not both, because there are simply too few slots, and 2) you want your spells/creatures to do things in multiples. You don't need too much draw here because your mana is tied up doubling splashy spells, but you need a heck of a lot of mana ramp to keep up.

I don't mean to sound curt, sorry :( Hope this was at least a bit helpful! I agree with Lilbrudder that it's simply too many cards to reasonably cut down, and that you should take a little time and find a focus for the deck.

I'm a fan of Teneb and a fan of multicolor Relentless Rats decks, so you get +1 from me!

Top card I suggest would be Remembrance. I also suggest trample-granting creature cards to help both your rats and Teneb, especially Pathbreaker Ibex, Nylea, God of the Hunt, and Craterhoof Behemoth.

Really cool deck overall!

Nylea, God of the Hunt would allow for a bit more openness to the type of creatues you can use rather than all these out of them and "Only there for trample" creatures.

Stephencliffe, i forgot to put Nylea, God of the Hunt in there to give my creatures such as heroes bane trample at a solid rate. Im not a fan of Murderous Cut bc that means i have to exile my graveyard cards which i try to get back anyway with Pulse of Murasa or Reclaim. As for Abrupt Decay, i may look into that. Im not too concerned about the number of cards in my deck, because i can then take advantage of Nissa, Worldwaker for extra lands or Garruk, Caller of Beasts for extra creatures. Tarmogoyf im not a fan of really, and im not 100% willing to go with Liliana of the Veil to keep synergy. Also, this is a deck that I have been using alot and it works really well, as long as i keep on attacking to clear their creatures, or use archfiend of depravity. I will look into Abrupt Decay. Thanks for the feedback.

Hm, I don't know man, maybe Nylea, God of the Hunt and/or Khalni Hydra?

I feel your deck is kind stuck on curve 4 and there is not a very clear wincon, except maybe multikicking Joraga Warcaller.

You seem to like +1/+1 counters, but there's not a very clear focus on it, either. You should define one sole mechanic to rely on and bring a lot of value to it.

Let's say, you wanna flood elves? Ok, then you should splash black and go for a Shaman of the Pack combo. Or maybe, you wanna go for big creatures with lot of counters? Then, go for black again, use some Winding Constrictor and Hardened Scales and go bonkers with huge elves. Otherwise, let's say, you really like Joraga Warcaller and wanna do the elves overrun thing? Add some Ezuri, Renegade Leader and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and make sure it will work everytime.

Know what I'm saying? You should go after consistency. Having a lot of parts that actually merge into something bigger and stronger.

If you want some more tips just ask. You have something good going here, you just need to make it take shape.

An absolute brutal combo for Hydra decks is Corpsejack Menace, Kalonian Hydra, Nylea, God of the Hunt, and Bow of Nylea.

When you attack, you double the number of +1/+1 counters on everything. Than you double it again. Everything you control has Trample, and all attacking creatures have Deathtouch.

Watch your opponents weep at the awesome might that is Hydra! Don't be shocked if you are dealing literally hundreds of damage each turn lol.

Don't forget Nylea, God of the Hunt, though pumping other creatures directly might be more mana efficient.
