I would possibly add one more land

have you considered these cards?

Polukranos, World Eater can add some removal

Kitchen Finks would a couple in the side

Primeval Titan big body with trample and more ramp. 1-2 would be good in this deck

Hornet Queen a lot of decks can't deal with her

Courser of Kruphix helps hit land drops with abig butt.

Primal Command good card with heavy ramp decks. Does a lot of things you need

Garruk Wildspeaker can help with devotion ramp and buff

Chameleon Colossus amazing in the size

Your 5-drop enchantments are good, but a Spell Pierce would ruin your day. Hardened Scales and Metallic Mimic can help get hydras bigger and are solid early plays. In Modern a lot of decks are winning by Turn 4-5, and so Doubling Season for example is kinda clunky as it takes all your mana to cast and doesnt do anything until you are able to resolve a Hydra or Planeswalker the following turn. Mistcutter in the side is obviously great against decks but the haste also makes it a decent early play too. Plus the creature count, hydras particularly, is kinda low for a creature-based strategy and you dont wanna end up with a hand full of lands and enchantments. Id probably drop Alpha Auth all together (sets up a sweeper 2-for-1) and go to 2 copies Doubling. I like things like Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense better as you get them to waste a removal spell, much harder to play around and allows leaving up to bluff. Sweepers can foil your plan, maybe Heroic Intervention could help hedge.

Ive always been a fan of Polukranos, World Eater, a 5/5 on Turn 3 is pretty solid and later it can be used as removal/mana dump.

Cavern of Souls is helpful if you have a lot of blue decks in your meta. Birds of Paradise is ok but in mono-green something like Llanowar Elves or Arbor Elf might be just as good but can also chump block and potentially kill something small. Aspect of Hydra is another thing to consider, especially with things with trample or haste. Only other thing I can think of is Surrak, the Hunt Caller to give your following turns Kalonian Hydra haste.

Looks good, keep up the tweaking +1

JNapp, So here is my suggestions to try and improve your draw and answers:

For your sideboard:

While Utopia Sprawl is a great card, by bring your mana curve down a little it is less necessary. Note that this is simply what I would do, I hope it's of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Bad news: Hydra Omnivore and Burgeoning aren't Modern legal.

Good news: I play what I want, too. Moving on.

As long as you're not sticking strictly to Modern, Berserk has been reprinted and can be picked up way cheaper than it used to be. Throw that on a Hydra Omnivore. Or a Blade of Selves!

One thing I see is that you have to many Hydras and not enough mana. I would recommend loosing Primordial Hydra, bring Polukranos, World Eater down to 1 copy, and not use Rishkar, Peema Renegade. You wouldn't want to be tapping huge Hydras for a piece. Consider going with a Elf mana core like Mystic elf, Elvish Archdruid and Priest of Titania. Switch out the 4xTreetop Village for 2xNykthos, Shrine to Nyx and 2xRogue's Passage. Also Genesis Wave (and Genesis Hydra)!

think you can run hydras or maybe Polukranos, World Eater if you run Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx although that might swing you closer to devotion than stompy

You should consider Surrak, the Hunt Caller he reduces Ghalta's cost by 5 and gives her haste the turn she comes into play. Polukranos, World Eater also gives you a high power for low cost creature who can wipe all your opponents creatures if you can make infinite mana.

Since you have a fair amount of elves, Priest of Titania would be a good addition, along with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds who does a lot of work with Ghalta.

A combo you could run is Great Oak Guardian, Temur Sabertooth with any creature that makes a bunch of mana to go infinite.

Thrashing Brontodon for artifact/enchantment removal on decent sizable body?

Seems like the perfect list to include Rhonas the Indomitable in. Makes for a sweet early drop that still contributes to Ghalta's cost reduction even if you don't have another creature with power 4 or greater.

With all your big bois Ulvenwald Tracker makes for some nice, repeatable removal.

Scute Mob seems cute. Don't know how effective it'll actually be, but for a one mana investment it can't be that bad.

Surrak, the Hunt Caller to give Ghalta haste out of nowhere could make for some pretty explosive kills.

Polukranos, World Eater is a decent mana dump and early drop big boi that has a powerfully unique ability for green; killing swarms of dudes.

Might be a little expensive, but Selvala, Heart of the Wilds ramps you for stupid amounts of mana with Gishath out.

In a monogreen list, Nissa's Pilgrimage is often strictly better than either Kodama's Reach or Cultivate.

You might consider playtesting Khalni Hydra to see how often you can windmill slam it down onto the battlefield for low cost or even free.

Ripjaw Raptor is a swole creature for its cost and gives you card advantage in combat should your opponents decide to chump.

Emerald Medallion would probably be nice as a strange kind of ramp for green.

A little better than the previous build of this, but still needs work. I think adding a few Beast Within and Mercy Killing will give you some removal to take care of your opponents threats. (also you can mercy kill one of your own creatures when it's about to die anyway to get a bunch of 1/1 elf tokens) I still think adding 2 Overgrowth will help as well. If your budget allows for it, I'd add at least one Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to your mana base. If you make a sideboard, add a couple Chameleon Colossus to it. Also, Genesis Hydra and Polukranos, World Eater might be pretty decent in here. Primal Command would also help a bit.
