Savageborn Hydra Discussion

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!

Savageborn Hydra to manasink, Craterhoof Behemoth and Siege Behemoth for lethal.
Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip comes in as a creature. Greenwarden of Murasa and Eternal Witness for recursion.

If you get more ETB elves you can do Wren's Run Packmaster for a mana outlet. Examples: Elvish Harbinger, Farhaven Elf, Wood Elves, Reclamation Sage, Oracle of Mul Daya (I know you have a couple already)

Look into the LEVEL UP cards from a few years ago or Level up cards from recent Commander Releases for good mana sinks.
