Why aren't you playing The Great Henge? It's a great card for this deck. Draw, +1+1 counters, life gain and acceleration, four effects in one card. Hydra's Growth in Mowu, Loyal Companion can be an overkill. Managorger Hydra can grow a lot in a 4 players game. Tuskguard Captain and Bramblewood Paragon can also be used as trample anthems for your creatures, and Longshot Squad to give them reach. The Ozolith can keep the counters of creatures that die so that you can pass them. Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig can be another interesting addition to the deck. Heroic Intervention and Wrap in Vigor can save your creatures in case of a boardwipe.

If you don't mind spending a bit of money you can also try Hardened Scales, Doubling Season or Branching Evolution

This is pretty cool, Hamza is a pretty cool commander. I see you're focusing on artifacts, but there are some great lords for plus counters:

Abzan Falconer

Bramblewood Paragon

Tuskguard Captain

Pridemalkin

Trollbred Guardian

Champion of Lambholt

Also, Felidar Retreat is pretty busted.

Noice list! Opinions:

Elven Cache is a bad Regrowth, you maybe even want it on a stick in this deck, that would be Eternal Witness.

Venser's Journal always feels like a "dead" card in any deck but lifegain, i feel like it is an easy card to cut for other cards that support your strategy for a more focussed deck, like Cathars' Crusade as only one example.

Of course i see the synergy on each Tuskguard Captain, Ainok Bond-Kin and Abzan Battle Priest but i feel like they're also just fillers. Their effects just aren't strong and you can better put 3 goodstuff cards out of the bant colors in this deck than these 3 weak creatures (imho!). They're no trash of course but i don't find them strong or good either. So these may be easy cuts too for at least better goodstuff-cards or even synergy cards - for the +1/+1 theme i have the 3 more budget -friendly examples Conclave Mentor, Master Biomancer and Toothy, Imaginary Friend, they support your strategy way better and are more focussed like the 3 mentioned above in your list.

Expensive auto-includes for this deck would be Doubling Season or overall goodstuff like Smothering Tithe and Rhystic Study - and many others ^^

CYA!!

Another batch of cuttable creatures, the premise is simple either they don't progress counters plan or are too expensive for what they do: - Conclave Naturalists - Armorcraft Judge - Avatar of the Resolute - Nimbus Swimmer - Skatewing Spy - Tuskguard Captain - Blighted Woodland - AEtherize - Bow of Nylea - Uncage the Menagerie - AEtherspouts - Durable Handicraft - Hunt the Weak - Recross the Paths - Winding Way - Rhonas's Monument

I would keep Kiora in there. She's a great way to draw some cards and she untaps stuff.

Suggestions: Vorel of the Hull Clade, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Herald of Secret Streams, Longshot Squad, Tuskguard Captain, and Sage of Hours. Think about replacing Condescend with something else; maybe Spell Rupture?

I know you're not a fan of combos but Freed from the Real is a really great inclusion. Infinite mana means you can cast you X spells for huge amounts of mana and finish a game up in a pinch. Running a single combo in the deck doesn't make the deck a "combo deck" and infinite mana doesn't win you the game outright, so it's not as annoying as most combos. I personally wouldn't feel bad for running it, but you do you.

Nice build though, hope it turns out great; +1 from me.

I know it's a human so it doesn't trigger Grumgully, but some sort of anthem effect like having a couple of Tuskguard Captain might be good. Crowned Ceratok is not a human but has the same effect for one more mana.

A couple things with this.

1) hi I'm Tom, I've played Magic for ~7 years and I've been teaching new players for a little over a year now.

2) now onto the deck. You have a couple weird picks that I want to discuss.

Elvish Archdruid seems an odd choice. The odds are it comes down on turn 3 and very, very rarely generates more than two mana- sometimes just . You'd probably be better off with Elvish Mystic. It'll let you play a little faster.

Parallel Lives,Enlightened Tutor, and Endless Ranks of the Dead are all functional only when Open the Graves is in play. Having two cards that synergize with one another is good, encouraged, even, so long as they slot naturally into the deck. However, none of these four cards support your hydra theme at all. You could fill these slots with more ramp or more hydras to make this deck more consistent and focused.

Consider cutting black and white, and if you've ever played commander you might consider building around Zaxara, the Exemplary or Gargos, Vicious Watcher.

3) some cards I might recommend include Unbound Flourishing, Rampant Growth, Courser of Kruphix, Voracious Hydra, and Tuskguard Captain.

4) if you want to overhaul the deck completely, go Blue/Green- it has excellent ramp and +1/+1 counter payoffs.

On Thin Ice doesn't work for this deck, as it requires a snow-land to enchant, and your deck doesn't run any (and they will increase the cost quite a bit). If you don't have a Coat of Arms already, I would drop it for other things. It's a nice card, but will benefit other tribal strategies and is pretty expensive overall - Door of Destinies might be a better option. Sigarda, Heron's Grace is not actually in your list, so you'll need to drop a card and put her in. Make sure to type * CMDR * (no spaces) after the card name to show her as the commander. I would look for some ways to push damage through, like adding some equipment that gives trample Ring of Kalonia or Loxodon Warhammer come to mind. Skyblinder Staff makes any of your flying creatures blockable only by creatures with Reach, which is a pretty powerful effect, with a flying commander. Champion of Lambholt can quickly give you an army of unblockable creatures. Dictate of Heliod is another option for an anthem. I think Elder Cathar may be an underperformer here and better replaced with another creature. Maybe Juniper Order Ranger, Abzan Falconer, Aegis of the Gods, Baird, Steward of Argive, Goldnight Commander, Karametra's Acolyte, Krosan Restorer, Tuskguard Captain, Wild Beastmaster or Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. Good luck, and let me know if there are any specific questions you have.
