Creature — Bird Horror

Whenever Thrummingbird deals combat damage to a player, proliferate. (You choose any number of permanents and/or players with counters on them, then give each another counter of a kind already there.)

Yotian_Soldier on 75% Simic Hydra Tribal

Updates with the release of M20:

Vivien, Arkbow Ranger > Tuskguard Captain - though the blanket trample given by the captain to our hydras are nice, I believe, Vivien's +1 is much better as it can give the counter to say to Fathom Mage, Gyre Sage or Simic Manipulator and then double said counters through Vorel. Also her -3 can take out utility creatures or to manage enemies planewalkers loyalty.

Gargos, Vicious Watcher > Altered Ego - lowering the value of X by 4 is huge for us. Though the deck has little ways to exploit it's second ability.

Voracious Hydra > Thrummingbird - we have other ways to constantly proliferate

Hey austintayshus thanks for the tips much appreciated! I'll definately try to fit in more draw thats solid advice. in my meta there arent many fliers to stop Thrummingbird until later in the game and I feel like proliferate is a really strong ability espescialy if I already have counters on the whole army via things like Mikaeus, the Lunarch or Bloodspore Thrinax . This is also why I wanted to keep Roalesk, Apex Hybrid but I think you are right about that one. The Creakwood Liege is a tough one its the first single I bought so although you are right I think I'll keep him cuz he doesnt have a spot in any other deck and I get joy throwing him down! I have a Mentor of the Meek laying around so hes in! Consecrated Sphinx is a bit out of the budget for this deck although it is bonkers. I feel like Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest has a lot of synergy in this deck so I'll play test once I complete the list but keep him under tight scrutinity. I always worry about getting rid of evasion but maybe I'll get rid of the Bramblewood Paragon for a Bred for the Hunt .

Anyways cheers thanks for the help you've caused solid reflection!

Looks like a fun strategy, but I have a few suggestions.

First, you need more lands. Looks like you have 6 open spots atm, definitely fill those with lands, preferably shock lands like Overgrown Tomb and Hallowed Fountain . I think you would be okay with 34-38 lands. And a few basic lands is fine in a 4-color deck.

Second, you'll need more card draw effects, by my count you only have 6 (7 if you count Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, which I really don't). I'd recommend recurrable effects like Beast Whisperer and Harvester of Souls and Consecrated Sphinx and Mentor of the Meek . About 10 card draw effects is a good number for most decks.

I TOTALLY understand getting too attached to certain cards and I also hate cutting cards, but some cards that I would recommend cutting are

Hope this helps! +1

I would get rid of the Bioessence Hydra is only worth it with a lot of Planeswalkers. I would add in instead Pir, Imaginative Rascal and his buddy Toothy, Imaginary Friend . Also Sphinx of the Guildpact has nothing to do with your strategy better add Thrummingbird . Thicket Elemental is also something to consider to get rid of and instead run Vigor . Omnibian is also something i wouldn't run --> Deepglow Skate is better. Bloom Hulk also is not really something you would want to run Inexorable Tide is miles better.

If you can get a hand on Pongify and Rapid Hybridization that would be really good.

Some stuff I agree with and have gone ahead and changed but I do disagree with your views on Ordeal of Nylea , Ordeal of Thassa and Grateful Apparition .

The two ordeals help with what this deck wants to do and get +1/+1 counters on creatures with the added benefit of dropping two basic lands on to the field and drawing me two cards.

The apparition is an improvement over Thrummingbird as I can hit Planeswalkers and get a proliferate trigger.

My own views may change as I play the deck more but for now I'll keep things as they are now with the exception of deciding what land to drop in favour of Karn's Bastion as I want to try that out.

Thank you for your time and suggestions. It's appreciated.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?
