Savageborn Hydra Discussion

Rosheen Meanderer was one of my first commander decks I built. It has since turned into Xenagos, God of Revels and currently Omnath, Locus of Mana; but the meanderer still holds a place in my heart

If you want to further pursue the avenue; I have a few more ideas.
Savageborn Hydra
Primordial Hydra
Lifeblood Hydra
Protean Hydra
Endless One
Verdeloth the Ancient
Steel Hellkite
Flameblast Dragon
Orcish Settlers
Bonfire of the Damned
Stream of Life
Clan Defiance

There's plenty more, but a lot of the one-shot burn spells are just that, one-shot, and don't keep hurting your opponent's turn after turn. Obviously that's a lot of suggestions so choose what's fun for you. This isn't a highly used archetype so a lot of the cards are pretty cheap :)

Cards like Decree of Annihilation scare me as they slow down the game, but one of your opponents could use something like Sensei's Divining Top to get ahead quicker. I know, I've done that to an opponent before after they played Apocalypse.

Genesis Wave drops all of your x-costing creatures onto the 'field as 0/0s and they die. So if you do add a ton of hydras etc I'd suggest removing it. Citanul Flute is epic in here since the converted cost of say, Savageborn Hydra, is only 2.

Anywho, have fun! +1 from me! Pease take a minute to check out some of my decks and +1 them! Cheers

There are a lot of cool stuff you could do, but I honestly thought of Rosheen Meanderer as a commander, so that you have access to Savageborn Hydra, Ulasht, the Hate Seed and Apocalypse Hydra

Neat. Focus more on the colorless mana? How about Rosheen Meanderer with Savageborn Hydra, Genesis Hydra, and Apocalypse Hydra. Anything with X in its cost. Also, Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread. Most importantly, however, Temur Ascendancy and Garruk's Packleader and Elemental Bond.

If you want to go for big things maybe Savageborn Hydra would be a nice addition. Or if you want to do the dragon theme thingy go for Dragonlord Silumgar always fun to take over something big your opponent has.And maybe a bit more control? Disallow or Voidslime.

If this is a hydra deck why not Savageborn Hydra?

If you could ramp up to it, Archetype of Endurance hits hard and protects your stuff.

Detritivore could be fun to mess around with.

Lifecrafter's Bestiary can help refill your hand when it's low, and the scry is nice.

A personal favorite of mine is Savageborn Hydra, giving you a sorcery speed mana sink that buffs a double striker.

They may be a bit pricey, but see what works for you!

Hello there. I would avoid Savageborn Hydra now that Fatal Push is almost always a 3-4x in and black list, because outside of the stack X is considered 0.

I know every other Rosheen deck out there utilizes Hydras (as is mine), but for a reason. You should try to implement atleast a few powerful ones to have variety in finishers through combat damage!

It's different and nice anyway, I like it!
