Stonecoil Serpent might be nice. It's very flexible.

Naksu I find your deck interesting as I too have been experimenting with The Ozolith I even believe I played you or this deck once and I did loose to it, ha.

I do find my version of this deck which includes Stonecoil Serpent and Dreadhorde Butcher to have some streaks of wins but at times slow and if they 'gain control' of your stuff without anyway to protect it from say Agent of Treachery being put in and out, it's over.

I haven't given up and will continue to work on the deck. There are so many creatures in meta and I am leaning towards putting in wipes with fewer creatures but those that are included have 'hexproof' or 'protection from multicolored.' Hydra's Growth + Barkhide Troll

Hope that adds some interest or ideas.

Hey, a card that's more fair then Freed for ramp is Gyre Sage. Sage will grow as you create Hydras with Zaxara. If you're casting an X Hydra then Sage could grow twice that turn. Could cut Rampant Growth for Sage.

Temur Sabertooth is a mana sink, a way to repeatedly bounce an X creature and cast it again. This interaction is good with Genesis Hydra to get repeatable value from it and Stonecoil Serpent as an easy to cast X creature. Could cut Feral Hydra for Sabertooth. Eternal Witness is a staple green creature for recursion and it's also good with Sabertooth who makes it repeatable. Could cut Reclamation Sage for Witness. Reclamation is a fine card, but there's more ways here to destroy an artifact or enchantment and only one way to recur cards.

Good luck with your deck.

Castle Garenbrig is a good option when running mono-green. It will give you and extra mana for Stonecoil Serpent.

I'm viewing this more as a Collected Company deck than a Counters/Scales deck. I want to play CoCo as it's a super strong card, so I have to build around it. Even with two copies of Scales and 4 removal, I'm already hitting the top for the number of cards I can play that aren't hits for CoCo. Right now, I have 28 maindeck creatures with CMC 3 or less, which gives me a little bit of flexibility to sideboard creatures out before I have to cut CoCos. 26 is the lowest I would go with 4 CoCos in the deck.

Your suggestions are good, there are decks out there that are based on Hardened Scales and work well (not Tier 1, but that isn't what I want to have anyway). But that's not what I want to play. All those "X creatures" can not be hit by CoCo (technically they can, but will enter without counters and die), so they are not good in this deck (the best ones in Pioneer are: Hangarback Walker, Walking Ballista and Stonecoil Serpent)

im on the same boat about Walking Ballista and would change it for something like Phyrexian Revoker/Grim Lavamancer/Stonecoil Serpent/Dark Confidant. cards that would let you keep refiueling your hand or disrupt your opponents permanents that you cant deal with (lands, hexproof, etc), can deal dmg or plain ol' big dumb boys.

Isn't the symbol for hydra an octopus? I could be wrong, but try to add at least one octopus. Otherwise, Stonecoil Serpent.
