Orochi Hatchery Discussion
2 weeks ago
I disagree about Gaea's Cradle and Growing Rites of Itlimoc . This deck does not seem to be set up to make a ton of creatures. If you go nuts with Hydra Broodmaster you're either winning the game or getting board-wiped, and either way Cradle isn't going to do anything for you.
There is a version of the Rosheen X-spell deck that could make very good use of Rites/Cradle, but it would be using cards like Gelatinous Genesis, Goblin Offensive, Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering, Orochi Hatchery, Snake Basket, Tilonalli's Summoner etc. etc. But that wouldn't be a Hydra deck.
Oh and speaking of which, since this is a Hydra deck, I think Lightning Serpent would be another fine cut, especially now that you've added Xenagod and Fires. The Serpent's only advantage over your other Hydras is its built-in haste, which is negated by your haste enablers. And it doesn't even get its counters doubled by Kalonian Hydra!

Oh damn well regardless I think I'll be adding Mage Slayer, perhaps replacing my Orochi Hatchery, since when I've gotten it off 1/1 creatures seemed a lackluster use of mana over burn or large ones with abilities (although my deck has a lot of card draw so I had fewer issues finding those). I think that will actually be a large help in taking several opponents down on a single turn due to not having to completely tap out to burn someone. Also I can just imagine playing a Tyrant's Familiar and equipping this to take out their blocker and make them eat 17.

Aura Mutation is good removal with token generation.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion, I think, is the best Planeswalker for a token deck and would be a good replacement for Valiant Protector at 6cmc slot.
Orochi Hatchery is a good way to make a ton of tokens all at once, and Riptide Replicator can make one huge creature. Additionally, Soul Foundry can give you copies of your favorite guys, like Mycoloth or Wayfaring Temple.
I can think of more, but hope those are helpful.

Obviously if you want to stray from budget a bit there's Rhys the Redeemed, which was one of the best investments I ever made.

I like Archfiend of Ifnir, but I'm not entirely sure it's doing much in a deck that has only three cycling cards. Shrine of Boundless Growth has just been slow, as has Briber's Purse. Orochi Hatchery doesn't really belong, and I could do better counter spells than Disdainful Stroke.

Mindslaver is legal in modern as far as I know, but you're right about sol ring. I'll have to go back to my 4x Palladium Myr...
That Saheeli Rai is an awesome add to this deck, thanks for the suggestion! I still think that Tezzeret is a great card just for his +1 abbility. His -X is just there to facilitate the game. Keeping both is the best way to go.
I was going to make a B/G Agro Token deck with Orochi Hatchery and Summoning Station in it to add Westvale Abbey Flip but I'll keep your suggestion in mind. As a protective answer Westvale is pretty good. I wonder if I can activate Westvale while an opponent's Lightning Bolt is in the stack attacking my Precursor Golem.
