+1 for Witch-Maw Nephilim ! As for the rest its straightfowardly good. More straightforwardness ; Primordial Hydra and the classical Doubling Season ( Primal Vigor can be better for politics though)? A classic is a classic. Of course there's also Archangel of Thune and Spike Feeder for the love of infinite counters and life. I'd cut Bred for the Hunt for either a Fathom Mage for easier draw or Gyre Sage for lots of mana. Have a superb day/night sir

benma78daboss I like the idea of Primordial Hydra, but I can dump a bunch of mana into it, and it still dies to fatal push. But I love the rest of your suggestions!

With a deck that runs a way to produce infinite green mans, then a few other bombs you can drop in the deck are Primordial Hydra, Protean Hydra, Hydra Broodmaster, Vastwood Hydra, or Mistcutter Hydra.

My friend built a deck like this but it was more hydra based my recommendations would be to throw in 3-4 Primordial Hydra

drop the temple bell and add Mind Spring

use Courser of Kruphix for a bit of ramp as well as 4 Elvish Mystic

Sands of Delirium for more mill and combo off the ramp

drop creeping corrosion for Disallow

drop ambassador for a couple Fog Bank keep the fight out of the air

and if you can run a couple Kalonian Hydra

other wise thats all i got good luck with the deck

Hey there Andrewctf5, thanks for the suggestions sapofeo! I actually really like the idea of Primordial Hydra as an early blocker that can grow pretty fast, I'll have to try it out. My worry with Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker is that the cost would make them a little bit to slow. Casting Apocalypse Hydra or Mistcutter Hydra for 8 mana gives us a huge creature, but 8 mana for a 4/4 seems weak in comparison especially since Apocalypse Hydra still has the ping ability, it just requires mana to activate.

musicman3310, that's an interesting take on the deck, I'm glad other people have come up with similar decks to this one because it's a lot of fun to play in a casual setting. That being said I think one thing that deck is missing is Neheb, the Worthy. In the playtesting I have done so far, he's the real MVP of the deck, even more so than Rosheen Meanderer especially when paired with a Lightning Bolt, a hasty Mistcutter Hydra, or even a Nissa, Steward of Elements ultimate.
