Protean Hydra enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it.
If damage would be dealt to Protean Hydra, prevent that damage and remove that many +1/+1 counters from it.
Whenever a +1/+1 counter is removed from Protean Hydra, put two +1/+1 counters on it at the beginning of the next end step.

A deck like this could get away with something like Spell Rupture . Speaking of Timmies Omnath, Locus of Mana would help alongside Kruphix, God of Horizons . I'm surprised not to see Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger in here. With hime and things like Murkfiend Liege and Prophet of Kruphix makes your opponents scoop. Experiment Kraj feels lonely that you invited all of the other simic legendaries.
I have a feeling that you just like Nimbus Swimmer instead try some other hydras/utility. Scourge of Skola Vale , Vastwood Hydra , Protean Hydra , Clockwork Hydra , Jugan, the Rising Star are all decent and provide removal or protection.
Last but not least screw the other kind of counters. There is nothing worse that putting 40 mana into a hydra just to get it countered. You need something like Gaea's Herald , Leyline of Lifeforce or Autumn's Veil
I suggest putting in a couple Savage Summoning
You can flash the Protean Hydra onto the battlefield for an Instablocker and then he get's the buff at the end step of combat after the block!
I use that combo in my hydra deck The Golgari WayWork's damn well.
Just because it seems that Protean Hydra is the creature you depend on then I figured you might want a way to make sure he makes it on the field by using Savage Summoning . If you anyone has a chance can they look over my deck too, please.
Both of those cards are totally up for trade . . . not too sure what exactly I want from your binder, so here is a blerghhhhhh of cards I'm interested in:
Garruk's Horde , Nirkana Revenant , Temporal Mastery , Temple of Mystery (80% just because I love that art), Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , Protean Hydra , Primordial Hydra , Sol Ring , Leyline of Anticipation , Daring Apprentice , Jace's Archivist .
Thank you all for the feed back! In the first copy of this deck I actually had Corpsejack Menace but i found that drawing it and the black mana was to unreliable so I switched it for Doubling Season . Also to answer your question Master2014 the reason I put rancor in there was to let my Predator Ooze and Protean Hydra push through chump blocks. Lastly I really like your idea to add the Gilder Bairn I think I'll drop a Rancor and a Gigantiform for them.
Yes, it would get rid of the counters (Killing a Primordial Hydra
or Protean Hydra
Anyway, it works kinda funny with Allies like Ondu Cleric and Hada Freeblade , as those creatures check their abilities upon resolution, so if you have a bunch of allies, the would all enter the battlefield (say... 5) and the each of those abilities would be checked for n=5 times.
See you around!
