Polukranos, World Eater
Legendary Creature — Hydra
: Monstrosity X. (If this creature isn't monstrous, put X +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes monstrous.)
When Polukranos, World Eater becomes monstrous, it deals X damage divided as you choose among any number of target creatures your opponents control. Each of those creatures deals damage equal to its power to Polukranos.

It depends on the hydra. Persist is not necessarily a bad idea for a hydra tribal deck, but it depends on what the hydras in the deck look like.
Most hydras look like a variation on Vastwood Hydra. Because he re-enters the battlefield without his cost being paid, X will be 0, so he will enter the battlefield as a 0/0 with a -1/-1 counter if he is persisted. Persist is a bad match for these sorts.
A smaller number of hydras don't have quite the tribe's most well-known mechanic, such as Polukranos, World Eater. These generally have some ability to gain +1/+1 counters, which is a good way to repeatedly reuse persist (because it will cancel out the -1/-1 counter). Persist is a good match for these.

I have always wanted a competitive Mono Green Tron deck. A card I have thought about is Polukranos, World Eater. Do you think that is viable main deck both as an efficient big body and as a pseudo sweeper if need be? I like your creature base though. Maybe try swapping one out for a Wurmcoil Engine or the Platinum Angel? What are your thoughts?

DeathChant17: My original thought was that Rishkar was finally the mono-green legend that can spearhead a deck built on +1/+1 counters. The other options:
Jugan, the Rising Star: He has to go to the graveyard to get his effect.
Polukranos, World Eater: I see him more with hydra tribal than +1/+1 counter matters, though both is possible (just not my goal).
Rishkar, I felt, opened a new door for such a deck to take shape and seemed much superior to the other options. The deck is possible but the big question is: Who will be the legend of choice?

Welcome to MtG and to the commander format specifically! Building a competitive EDH deck is indeed a thing that takes a lot of experience and a deep understanding of the game's mechanics and loopholes (aaaaand some extra cash in hand). Don't be discouraged by that, as most of the new commander players I've met simply enjoy playing with big decks, with their favourite themes and in a singleton format so that there is high variance from game to game.
This deck is a good first step that can definitely evolve in the future, as most commander decks do and taking into account you are new and that you want to play with similarly minded friends, I will restrict myself to a few notable suggestions and general comments for the deck.
-To begin with, your general is a very interesting and rather good choice for your strategy, which is to build up a gazillion mana, then nuke the board with a huuuuuuge hydra, or more.
-Your land count is fair and good but you are lacking a little on mana acceleration. Having too much mana in this deck will never happen! You want to get your commander out as early as possible and since he costs 5 you want the majority of your ramp spells to cast 3 or less. Sol Ring has been mentioned already, Sakura-Tribe Elder and Rampant Growth are decent, so is the functional pair of Cultivate and Kodama's Reach. Simic Signet because why not and Kiora's Follower can be an over-performer in the deck by untapping lands for mana, or creatures for blocking and multiple activations of abilities (e.g. Karametra's Acolyte)
-Give your big creatures more evasion. Nothing sucks more than having an army of 9/9's getting chump blocked by a meekly tokens of 1/1 that the token player pukes on the field turn after turn after turn. Levitation, Archetype of Imagination, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Primal Rage and Thunderfoot Baloth are amazing at getting your fat Hydras through to chew on your opponents.
-Include Alchemist's Refuge in your lands. The ability to play anything at instant speed is INCREDIBLY powerful. All your creatures get pseudo-haste, your sorceries become instants... Any card that lets you so blatantly break the rules of the game is worth playing (see Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir for the more powerful version)!
All right, that's that! Once again, welcome to the format. Sorry for the long post; I hope it proves helpfull. If you find yourself in need for help cutting cards for replacements, this community is strong and will gladly offer assistance!
