Oran-Rief Hydra Discussion

I suppose you might enjoy Oran-Rief Hydra, but all in all the deck looks pretty sound

I get where you're going with this, but running so many lands pretty much guarantees a hand full of lands most games. You don't have any plays until turn 3, and once you do have a mess of lands there isn't a real pay off for it.

I would cut down to 27 lands MAX, throw in some early game defense and a couple of bombs.

Cards I'd look at:

Early game - Jaddi Offshoot, Scythe Leopard, Sylvan Advocate, Tireless Tracker,

Ramp - Traverse the Ulvenwald, Attune with Aether, Nissa, Vital Force

Payoffs - Architect of the Untamed, World Breaker, Ulvenwald Hydra, Oran-Rief Hydra, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger.

Hope this helps!

Have you considered Splendid Reclamation? Just imagine what combos can be done late game. Nissa, Vital Force's emblem would have you draw how many cards? And you could probably play most of them as well. Courser of Kruphix, gain all the life. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, kill target player, put how many +1/+1 counters on him? Ulvenwald Hydra would be unstoppable. And do I even need to mention Undergrowth Champion, Rampaging Baloths, or Oran-Rief Hydra? Too late, I already did.

And don't forget, Amulet of Vigor would make sure all 20-40 of those lands enter untapped.

Well at first, 20 land isn't enough for any ramp deck, 23-24 is right amount.

When HOU comes out you have to have answer for Solemnity as it wrecks all decks like this.

I don't see why you play Evolving Wilds in mono colored deck.

Ajani, Valiant Protector Just isn't worth to play really, ultimate doesn't even usually win the game if opponent has removal spell, and standard decks plays usually lot of removal.

Paradox Engine Doesn't really fit in deck like this, of course it works nicely with Rishkar, Peema Renegade but still i don't like it.

Aetherwind Basker Isn't really that good, there are better options like Oran-Rief Hydra, Honored Hydra or if you want to stick with elf theme (You even play Metallic Mimic) Gladehart Cavalry isn't too bad.

There are things that i come up with at first, have fun playing!

Oran-Rief Hydra might be a good card for this because it is constantly grwoing as long as you have a land. I would take out Mistcutter Hydra because while it has protection from blue, it needs other creatures to keep growing. Vastwood Hydra would pair well with Scourge of Skola Vale. You could encorporate this by simply taking 1 card off of some of your other hydra's that have 4 cards.

maybe you should think of adding Oran-Rief Hydra?

I made a comment but will need some time to correct it my apologies.

I tested it out for the first time yesterday and I'm a little inclined to agree. Gift of Paradise doesn't feel good at all and I'll likely be taking out all three copies. Champion of Rhonas feels really good to use though, I'll likely add a third copy.

Managorger Hydra and Oran-Rief Hydra are absolute monsters in this deck. They get huge so quickly.

I'm open to any suggestions if you have them!
