KingRamz on Cut X Heads Off, X More Shall Take Its Place

I disagree about Gaea's Cradle and Growing Rites of Itlimoc . This deck does not seem to be set up to make a ton of creatures. If you go nuts with Hydra Broodmaster you're either winning the game or getting board-wiped, and either way Cradle isn't going to do anything for you.

There is a version of the Rosheen X-spell deck that could make very good use of Rites/Cradle, but it would be using cards like Gelatinous Genesis, Goblin Offensive, Tempt with Vengeance, Sylvan Offering, Orochi Hatchery, Snake Basket, Tilonalli's Summoner etc. etc. But that wouldn't be a Hydra deck.

Oh and speaking of which, since this is a Hydra deck, I think Lightning Serpent would be another fine cut, especially now that you've added Xenagod and Fires. The Serpent's only advantage over your other Hydras is its built-in haste, which is negated by your haste enablers. And it doesn't even get its counters doubled by Kalonian Hydra!

Definitely check out Brightstone Ritual. Dig the deck, Stromgald is a very underappreciated commander. Might consider taking out Snake Basket for Door of Destinies or Coat of Arms.

Pal00ka on Ezuri, Claw of Counters

Just did a quick 1v1 w this and my Gonti deck for fun so here's what I would advise from that brief play and looking at your list:

No one likes infect so if you don't always want to be archenemy then I would cut them for unblockable threats like Triton Shorestalker & co.

Ezuri needs more protection. Lightning Greaves, Ring of Evos Isle and those already suggested would be a good idea. Your plans slow down like whoa if he cannot stick.

Cancel is meh, tbh, even Dissolve is better. I personally like using counters that replace themselves even though they usually cost a little more. Arcane Denial, Statute of Denial, Failed Inspection and Dream Fracture.

Progenitor Mimic is cute but if you want a clone why not Altered Ego since it gets counters (on theme)?

Cards that I saw and I was confused why they were even in here were Majestic Myriarch (not many creatures have keywords on them), Loam Larva (kills your next draw, how about Farhaven Elf?), Kruphix, God of Horizons (Thassa, God of the Sea and Nylea, God of the Hunt make more sense), Triskelion (expensive, slow, win-more), Orochi Hatchery (Snake Basket is better imo), Planar Bridge (so expensive to use), and Inexorable Tide (feels win-more).

Hope something helps!

Y U NO Snake Basket?

I'm not sure what The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale is in there for. I know you have a lot of ramp so it should slow your opponent more than you but it will make it harder for you to go wide with Snake Basket and Hydra Broodmaster. I would take them out in place of something else, even basic forests.

Second, have you considered Overwhelming Stampede instead of Predatory Rampage? That way it won't even matter if they have not been forced to sac their creatures.

What about the cuts I suggested? Do you really need Gaea's Anthem? And if you like that effect why not add more cards that it benefits ie. Snake Basket. You don't need a lot of mana to make the basket good and with all your better anthems it dosen't seem bad.

Is Call to the Kindred good with you low snake count? seems like you're just asking for card disadvantage. maybe add Plea for Power, Harmonize, or Concentrate over it?

On Cryptic Gateway and Urza's Incubator: I actually have quite a low snake count.On Snake Basket: Most of the time you don't have enough mana to make it worth it.On the Ninjas: They don't really contribute to my tribal strategy and the effects aren't good enough for me to put them in just to be able to get them in through ninjitsu,
