Creature — Hydra
Infect (This creature deals damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)
If damage would be dealt to Phyrexian Hydra, prevent that damage. Put a -1/-1 counter on Phyrexian Hydra for each 1 damage prevented this way.

Phyrexian Hydra Discussion

Suggestions on cuts:
1 Crumbling Ashes (you have 2 copies in the deck)Serrated Arrows (honestly it's not that good. It's slow, and for 4 mana you can do lots of other things)Trigon of Corruption (see Serrated Arrows. These are both absurdly slow)Spinebiter (you could get Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon for 1 less mana and it would have higher power. Not to mention Phyrexian Hydra for 1 less mana as well. Don't bother with this awful card even if it does have infect)Twinblade Slasher is not very good and you have very few ways to buff him to reliability.Both Liliana, Death Wielder and her tutor card are terrible and you can do better than what benefits she offers over the course of 3-4 turns.Core Prowler is also pretty terrible. He proliferates once, whoo hoo. That's pretty mediocre for a 4 mana 2/2 with no evasion, and you don't have, say, Mikaeus to make repeated use of his ability.
That's 8 cuts. You should be at 102 after that and only have to cut 2 more cards.
You should look into Midnight Banshee, Soul Snuffers and Carnifex Demon. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and creatures with Undying would also be strong options because -1/-1 and +1/+1 counters cancel each other out, meaning you can re-use their abilities again and again for benefit.

With hydras you will want a lot of ramp so of course Sol Ring but then look at the key runes and signets Golgari Signet Orzhov Keyrune. I would look to replace Druid of the Cowl with better options like Elvish Mystic or Fyndhorn Elves. Terramorphic Expanse and Command Tower will help with color fixing. Black Market is great ramp in black.

Triumph of the Hordes, Blightsteel Colossus, Glistening Oil, Inkmoth Nexus, Phyrexian Crusader, Phyrexian Hydra,Phyrexian Swarmlord, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, and Snake Cult Initiation give you an additional wincon that fits with your -1/-1 theme

I also think infect should likely be represented in this deck. I specifically recommend Phyrexian Swarmlord, Reaper of Sheoldred, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Triumph of the Hordes, Phyrexian Hydra, Phyrexian Crusader, Hand of the Praetors, Grafted Exoskeleton, orGlistening Oil

Not sure if it's in your budget, but you have to get Contagion Engine in there.
Same with Parallel Lives

I don't know if there's enough deserts to add into the deck, but I haven't looked into them too much. I may know like 3 in Hapatra's color identity but that's about it. Oran Rief seems really good, I'll see if I can trade for one. I currently have a single Reliquary Tower in one of my other decks, again if I can trade for one that'd be great haha. Same goes with Arcane Lighthouse.
I added in the mana dorks for more ramp in the deck, but since most of the deck is low-CMC, I can probably free up spots for Cryptolith Rite and other cards.
Contagion Engine is a card that is amazing, but I don't have the money for it yet. I'll add it in, however. I did get a job recently so I can potentially buy it once I get some money from it and my LGS carries it.
Phyrexian Arena and Evolutionary leap are nice since they supply card draw and a sac outlet to dig for creatures. Haven't drawn them all that much, so feel free to ask once I get all the cards for the deck. :)
Phyrexian Hydra is also a maybe, since it's pretty great, just the CMC is a tad off-putting. I may add it in sometime too if I'm in need for a more impactful win condition.
Thanks for all the suggestions!
