Creature — Plant Hydra

If damage would be dealt to Phytohydra, put that many +1/+1 counters on it instead.

Phytohydra Discussion

Awesome commander. I run a similar list at Mazirek Counters if it'd ever be useful to compare notes.

In addition to Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, I might also suggest:

And maybe some additional sac outlets like Vampiric Rites, Viscera Seer, and Birthing Pod.

Have fun!

I know it ain't your plan, but I hey, figured id toss this out there, Phytohydra + Lure

Watched your deck tech video and wanted to come see the actual list. You talked a lot about +1/+1 counters, especially for your phantoms. It would seem good synergy to possibly consider Gleam of Battle. It would make it so even if your phantoms are blocked, they don't end up any smaller. It also makes your Phytohydra even more of a problem in case people just chose to not block it and keep it small.

Here's an initial potential cutlist of cards I don't think synergize well with your goal, or have direct better upgrades: Elgaud Shieldmate Essence Warden Phantom Nantuko Phytohydra Fade into Antiquity Mouth / Feed Revoke Existence Lifecrafter's Gift Frozen AEther Primal Rage Lightmine Field Azorius Keyrune Obelisk of Bant Selesnya Keyrune. There are some others I'm not sure on but those will have to be chosen on based on what direction you choose to go with this.

Site won't let me post to your Dino deck for some reason

Pyrohemia can set off enrage every round, as can Fire Ants.

Phytohydra and Sprouting Phytohydra like to get hit.

Vigor if you are serious about taking damage

I made a "damage your own guys" deck a few years ago and was never happy with it. The dinosaurs are making me very happy =)

why Phytohydra?

I know it's offcolor, but Phytohydra would also have some synergy (becoming a 14/14 after a Blasphemous Act, likely to an empty field), and you could fetch it out with Eldritch Evolution and a CMC 3 critter.

Also, Undergrowth Champion survives Blasphemous Act if it has a +1/+1 counter on it.

Volcano Hellion would also be worth considering.

And Brindle Shoat is not legal in Modern.
