Polukranos, World Eater Discussion

KongMing on Elven Hydra's

My friend has a deck similar to this. Instead of going the Elf route for mana though, he uses Overgrown Battlement, Axebane Guardian, and Karametra's Acolyte.

Some more diversity in your Hydras might be really helpful too. Some examples are: Heroes' Bane (so deadly...), Managorger Hydra, Hydra Broodmaster, Lifeblood Hydra, Mistcutter Hydra, Nessian Wilds Ravager, Polukranos, World Eater, Primordial Hydra, and Protean Hydra.

Finally, some targeted creature destruction might be quite good for this deck, and it's something you can pull off with the Black you have splashed in here. Another option would be to go Red instead/also and include stuff like Apocalypse Hydra, Zhur-Taa Druid, and Rolling Thunder.

Oh, yeah it does seem like it would be pretty good to be on mono green when the generic ramp is banned.

I could see you taking advantage of the lack of artifact ramp and just play a bunch of land destruction. Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Terastodon, Acidic Slime, Woodfall Primus. And then just have a way to deal with dorks. Polukranos, World Eater is really good at eating up 1 toughness dudes. Staff of Nin can also do it and draw you cards. If they're unbanned via the rules of your LGS, try out Sundering Titan and Sylvan Primordial.

Are the Eldrazi banned in your LGS? Because both Kozileks and both Ulamogs seem like perfect fits here. I also notice that you don't have Regal Force, which is like the best creature in green.

I highly recommend perusing that ChiDH link, because my friend's Omnath deck is no joke. Its like 10 months outdated, but its still pretty ferocious. He's done very well with it in several tournaments. Remember to add -1 to the link to pull up the proper list though. The linked list is like from when we started playing EDH.

Dude, sweet deck. I love Genesis Hydra. My biggest concern for your deck is that if you cast Genesis Hydra you run the risk of hitting a lot of creatures with X in their cost and 0 toughness, or a tiny Arbor Elf (that you don't need. I don't know how big of a problem this is for you, but I found Genesis Hydra to be more effective with lots of options. For me that's Nylea's Disciple, Acidic Slime, Eternal Witness, Hornet Nest, ETC. That being said, I know you're going for Hydra tribal, which, I have mad respect for.

So my suggestion is to try running some lower cost Hydras to capitalize on that sweet Genesis Hydra trick. Maybe change out some X in the cost hydras for: Managorger Hydra - Grows and is generally terrifying. Scourge of Skola Vale - Defensive by making your opponent have to deal with him before targeting your "Roided" hydras. Polukranos, World Eater - Hydra. Sniper. shoot down those sneaky pacifists.

Also, don't forget Genesis Hydra can hit Artifacts and enchantments! Which is dope! Bow of Nylea has served me well against all sorts of decks! even though I usually sideboard it.

But if I am being honest, I play casual home-brewed magic with my friends. Don't get me wrong! I play a lot of magic, but I am not a pro. I am just a monogreen-loving fool. So follow your dreams kid, be the best hydra-riding, counter-placing, stompy-trampler you can be! Best of luck to you!

Hey, there! To add more consistency to your deck, I'd recommend running fewer 1- and 2-ofs, and more 3- and 4-ofs. Stronger mana fixing is also recommended. I'd make the following changes:

Hope I helped! There are also more ramp options beside Explore, such as Rampant Growth and Elvish Mystic, if you're looking for that.

Beast Within and Chaos Warp are probably the best removal (non-burn) cards in this color. And for modern you will definitely want like Ground Seal sideboard against graveyard decks. Also Ruric Thar, the Unbowed is great vs control decks. Mistcutter Hydra is spectacular vs blue decks and Polukranos, World Eater is just a good creature. Domri Rade Garruk, Caller of Beasts Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip I love gruul, the deck looks like fun too +1. I'll list some other neat cards too :P Fanatic of Xenagos Overwhelming Stampede Hull Breach Blasphemous Act Strangleroot Geist Courser of Kruphix Stormbreath Dragon Savage Summoning (good anti-control sideboard card)
