checkout Increasing Savagery i think it might help your deck. also Quest for the Gemblades and Oran-Rief, the Vastwood. These can help with +1 +1 ramp.

You need a way to continually blink Ramos, Dragon Engine. A particularly good combo is Isochron Scepter and Cloudshift with Paradox Engine. You should look at other cards to add counters such as Quest for the Gemblades. With Deadeye Navigator you should look into Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron for infinite mana to continually cast your stuff. Future Sight to manipulate the top card of your library. Sensei's Divining Top works wonders with it. Freed from the Real, Argothian Elder and any land that produces more than one mana such as Simic Growth Chamber.

Ok ive been looking through some stuff and I have some suggestions:

Renegade Krasis

Quest for the Gemblades

Ordeal of Nylea

Undergrowth Champion

2 more Gyre Sage

Take out:

Kalonian Hydra

Wilt-Leaf Liege

Increasing Savagery

Fungal Behemoth

Another Suggestion:

If you want to, you could make this Humans and put in Metallic Mimic. You would just keep the Gyre Sages and the Endless Ones

if you need +1/+1 counters,Quest for the Gemblades could be helpful

Hmm, then Quest for the Gemblades sadly doesn't get me what I want, but with the even further enhanced ramp, I can probably make Solidarity of Heroes work really well, but then again I need all my creatures to have counters on them for that. In that case I might make Thrive, which currently resides in my maybeboard, into a mainboard addition. I'll have to test the changes, until then, the deck on site remains as it is.

Any additional Kalonian Hydras will require me to trade out another creature and I'll pass on the Boots, so far 4 vines of vastwood and 2 blossoming defense has worked really well.

Thanks again for the recommendations.

DeepbloodEclipse. Nah, you can only hand out 4x +1/+1 counters for each copy of Quest for the Gemblades. Hmmm, a (semi-)mana expensive route would be artifacts like Swiftfoot Boots.

Gyre Sage would synergize well with Kalonian Hydra, if you want more ramp. Maybe add a forest or two more, just for land-draw consistency.

Another thing could be Solidarity of Heroes. Doesn't work in every deck, but extremely fun to play! Turn your hydra into a 6240/6420 creature with trample! (Watch out for Path to Exile, though)

Tell me about it! Twice when me and my mates played a 4-player free-for-all , my Kalonian Hydra would be the to go. Defending your creatures while leaving enough mana for counter spells and emergencies can be tough for green.

Thank you for the recommendations, Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl seems hella effective, I might even use it in my other Mono Green deck. But I have a question if you don't mind me asking concerning Quest for the Gemblades. If it has for example, 3 counters on it and I remove all 3 and sacrifice it, does it mean I can apply 4 counters 3 times? Cause what I really want to do is spread the counters around as much as I can not just pump everything into one creature.

As for groundswell, I actually already replaced with 2x Blossoming Defense since people are so keen on removing my Champion or Hydra that Vines of Vastwood alone just doesn't cut it. (-_-)
