Creature — Hydra
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.

With all that Green Mana you really need Omnath, Locus of Mana. You also need way more hydra's like Genesis Hydra or Protean Hydra. You may want to voltron your commander with cards like Strata Scythe (I mean +1/+1 for each forest, yes please) or Sword of the Animist.

Gotta love hydras. I did a video on a hydra deck if you want to check that out, if not here is the tldr: Gyre Sage is bonkers, Hardened Scales good combo, "one drop hydras" will always be the right manacost: Mistcutter Hydra, Protean Hydra, Feral Hydra, and though not in the video Endless One is good too.
If you end up liking the modern format, I've got a podcast all about wacky deck brews if you want to check it out

I love hydra tribal. I'm not gonna tell you what to do, but I did do a deck tech video on a modern hydra tribal deck (it may be a little outdated since it was like 2 years ago). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHREN2jnqkk

That gives you early drops to ramp into (keep the ramp, love the ramp build more ramp) and some sweet sweet Hydra synergies!

Thank you for the suggestions! I used to run Managorger Hydra and really liked it but I found Protean Hydra to be a little faster. I have also tried Hardened Scales before but i found it to be a win more card as the extra counter rarely mattered. i do like Winding Constrictor but I don't know what i would remove for it. I like the Oran-Rief, the Vastwood but this deck needs a lot of mana fast so tapped lands are risky.

Monogreen casual Timmy decks always bring me back to my first few years of playing Magic. Reminds me of my favorite combo of Protean Hydra (my first mythic rare ever) and Shape of the Wiitigo. Good times.
I also have to recommend Symbiotic Wurm as a nasty classic. Have fun brewing!
