Oh I didn't see how to play it. Also, Fog over Terrifying Presence.

...I love it. Would a single copy of Dragonlord Ojutai maybe add a bit more oopf? It helps draw cards, too. Font of Mythos, Temple Bell Otherworld Atlas More draw=better.

Icefall Regent was another favorite of mine. Hmmm... Ethereal Haze is good cheap fog fun. Dawn Charm is seriously good. possible one of the best. Leyline of Sanctity...if you have one. Terrifying Presence as a one or two of.

Thank you for the suggestions. What do you think I should take out for Terrifying Presence? Or do you think it should be in the sideboard?

Looked in Gatherer, and found a few: Terrifying Presence (the card art at least fits), and Hunter's Ambush. I have a friend who runs a Gruul Deck and might know some better than me. I'll ask him and take another look at some cards tomorrow. I also know of Predator's Rapport.

Interesting deck, but you don't have any turn 1 plays. Hardened Scales really wants to be in this deck. And possibly Experiment One or Cloudfin Raptor.

You also have no mainboard protection from targeted removal whatsoever. Plaxcaster Frogling can help there. You can also consider Stubborn Denial if you find yourself getting to 4 power consistently enough.

You could use some removal of your own in this deck too. Any combo deck that can combo faster than you can do damage will beat you. Splinter Twin can beat you turn 4, for example. I like Cyclonic Rift since you can produce lots of mana with Gyre Sage. It gets around hexproof creatures when overloaded too.

Honestly, you'll find it hard to support 7 hydras with only 22 lands. With that many you are likely to see 1-2 in your opening hand, which you don't want since those are basically dead cards until turn 5 or later. Given all the hydras and mana abilities in this deck, you are essentially dependent on Gyre Sage, so if your opponent kills it you will probably lose (which relates to the protection point above).

You should work on making this deck leaner and more interactive. Most opponents won't just sit there and wait for you to play a big hydra, so you'll have to interfere with them until you get to that point.

Sage of Hours is completely worthless in this deck since you only have two spells to target him with (Bioshift and Terrifying Presence) and those spells apply effects to him which you don't want. Bioshift moves counters off of him and Terrifying Presence is best on your big hydra.

As it is, you are mostly dependent on your hydras to put counters on things, which means that you really won't get going until you play a hydra on turn 5 or later. That's too slow. Sure, you'll get a counter or two from evolve effects, but you only have 4 non-hydra creatures that will trigger the evolve, so it won't be that reliable. If you want to use evolve, you have to work on your mana and creature curve a lot, and right now yours is heavily skewed towards both ends (tiny guys and huge guys).

Graft is a mechanic you may want to look at, since graft creatures give you a counter when they enter the battlefield. I use it extensively in my Simic counter deck: Simic Counter Shenanigans

Ah, awesome suggestions! Taking these into consideration, I changed the deck up and went for a more aggro approach, losing the Terrifying Presence and the Arachnus Spinner with his control style approach in favor of a big ass Silklash Spider and a bigger focus on getting the good stuff out sooner.

Thanks a lot for the advice guys!
