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.

Protean Hydra Discussion

Protean Hydra, Genesis Hydra, and Hydra Broodmaster all fit here. Splashing red might be a good idea, as there are some great R/G hydras. Rosheen Meanderer can be added without changing anything. I have a hydra deck myself if you want to take some ideas from it! Good luck! +1 from me.

Protean Hydra is another hydra to consider,as for ramp id use things more like Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves id add some board wipes or kill spells to have a cleaner board when paying x for hydras so id be looking at things like Anger of the Gods, Pyroclasm or even Savage Twister.i think if you wanted planswalkers you could look at Domri Rade, + = draw, - = kill somthing, ult = you win.i dont think Fervor is a good card, if you relly needed all creatures to have haste Hammer of Purphoros is better as it has a alternate ability aswell. orrrrArlinn, Embraced by the Moon, for massive hydras nothing like swinging immediately with +2/+2 and staying up to block, nothing wrong with a free 2/2, other side, +1 means you dont have to run Primal Rage as this is giving +1/+1 to everything aswell, -1 bolt a creature still strong, and ult insta win.+1/+1 synergy there is Doubling Season, Primal Vigor, Hardened Scales or a black splash for Corpsejack Menace (you mana base needs alot of work if your going to splash for 3rd colour)also id reccomend Asceticism at least in the SB if not MB as having a massive hydra getting killed by a Path to Exile

This one looks like a LOT of fun. A lot of synergy, but for 2.5 tix??? Awesome! I think the Protean Hydra would very fun addition, and then giggle, lol.

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.

I don't think there's a precedent for that kind of effect. Maybe use Protean Hydra (incidentally close to Protoss...) as a template.
If damage would be dealt to ~, prevent damage equal to the number of shield counters on ~. If you do, remove that many shield counters from ~.
There's also Cover of Winter:
If a creature would deal combat damage to you and/or one or more creatures you control, prevent X of that damage, where X is the number of age counters on Cover of Winter.
If damage would be dealt to ~, prevent X of that damage, where X is the number of shield counters on ~. Remove a shield counter from ~ for each 1 damage prevented this way.
Of the two, I think the latter is better.

I'll mention what is arguably the best early mana ramp in green at the moment: Arbor Elf with Utopia Sprawl, which enables some very rapid hijinks (T1: land + arbor elf. T2: land, utopia sprawl other land, tap it twice for 4 mana). I also think it would behoove you to include some creatures with variable mana costs to give some greater flexibility to different situations, as 12/16 of your creature cards currently cost 6 or more mana (e.g. if your mana game is slow or impeded, you'll never get to play a creature at all). Consider Wolfbriar Elemental, Primordial Hydra, Protean Hydra, and/or Vastwood Hydra. I think Garruk Wildspeaker or Garruk, Primal Hunter would also fit well here.
While I'm thinking about it, here's some other cards this deck makes me think of: Khalni Heart Expedition, Oran-Rief Hydra, and Undergrowth Champion. Maybe try Sheltering Word over predator's rapport, as protection from creature removal is often extremely valuable.
