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

Phytohydra Discussion

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.

Champion of Lambholt would be really good in this deck. Phytohydra, Managorger, Mikaeus, the Lunarchwould all be really good creatures in this Inspiring Call for some solid life gain, Fog protection, Opal Palace make your commander bigger, Archangel of Tithes, Norn's Annex, Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Windborn Muse, Elephant Grass will stop your opponents from attacking you and allow you to do what you want , Abzan Falconer and Tuskguard Captain will give your creatures with counters flying and trample. hope some of this helps.

I've got a pretty similar deck. I would strongly recommend Solidarity of Heroes for obvious reasons. Hardened Scales can really come in handy. Also useful would be Mutant's Prey for some creature removal and/or a way to buff up your Phytohydra, Predator Ooze, or Protean Hydra. Lastly, Bioshift can be a good way to keep hold of counters from creatures that would die, or to surprise buff an undefended attacker into a fatally strong one.

Np, I run hydras myself (Hydras, headchoping all day long), but GW because of Phytohydra, the most fun hydra out there imo :) Regarding your deck I would also cut Solidarity of Heroes because your hydras are doing the same job by themselfes. In my opinion it does't really matter if there are 20 or 40 counters, all above 10 is already enormously fat.

I had Phytohydra in at one point but it was enough of a threat that it was removed too often in multiplayer. I like the other hydras though, now just need to figure out what to cut after the latest revision.
