Ulvenwald Hydra Discussion

I attended 2 game days, I went 3-1 only losing to a control deck, and omg our match (3 rounds) went on for about an hour and twenty minutes! It determined who of the two of us made top 4. I was playing this hybrid delirium/ +1/+1 counters deck with Walking Ballista, Winding Constrictor etc.

I didn't get all of my cards that I had ordered to replace my former delirium cards all on time so I had to play some different choices, which included things like a Ulvenwald Hydra (Could fetch a Blighted Fen for a last-resort answer to an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger which my deck had a lack of answers for if cast game 1), a Liliana, the Last Hope (as a 1x of since I sold 3/4 of mine), 1x Rhonas the Indomitable, a 1x Liliana, Death's Majesty (which I have to add is a lot of fun with things like Noxious Gearhulk and Verdurous Gearhulk, among a few other things because I was lacking cards.

It was back and forth us asking how many cards the other had in hand because he had Thought-Knot Seers and Harsh Scrutiny, while I had a playset of Transgress the Minds after sideboarding, to him constantly exiling my Kalitas, Traitor of Ghets, Verdurous Gearhulk (only had 2/4 unfortunately for gameday the other 2 were still in the mail) with Declaration in Stones, Stasis Snares and Anguished Unmakings.

Then if that was not enough to slow our matches down, he was playing Authority of the Consuls after sideboarding, as well as Kambal, Consul of Allocation to punish me and all my removal (Had a playset of Fatal Pushes, 3 Never / Returns, and 2 Grasp of Darkness to gain lots of life as well of course from 3x Noxious Gearhulk which he was using on things like my Mindwrack Demon, Verdurous Gearhulk, Ishkanah, Grafwidow among others... I was using 2x Noxious Gearhulk (one main/one side) myself too which was pretty funny. Beyond that he was stealing my stuff with mainboard Gonti, Lord of Luxurys of which he had I think 2-3 of and he managed to beat me with one of my own Kalitas, Traitor of Ghets. Also 2x Demon of Dark Schemes he had which he also used t recur things, but mainly his own, although he did at times kill off my Ishkanah, Grafwidow spider tokens.

That had to be my longest game of magic, I ended up losing 2-1 after drawing 5 lands in a row and him slowly whittling down my health all the while with a Gonti, Lord of Luxury I could not afford to trade one of my creatures with, this was when I already had like 11 mana available which was lame. But I got third place anyways. Despite being long it was a challenging, yet fun match.

The second gameday I went 1-3, the problem is my deck was inconsistent with it being rather a hybrid of two strategies (delirium and counters) since I was lacking some of my much needed +1/+1 related cards. I had to mulligan a lot due to lack of lands showing up despite me using 24 which is fine. I forfeited my last match too someone I know because if I was to win he would lose his chance at top 4 and I already being 1-2 had nothing to gain from winning so I let him advance, he went on to being in the final match for the champion playmat but in round 3 because his opponent had a really, really good opening hand with zombies he just got steamrolled in the third round when they were 1-1. But the one who won is also a friend of mine who never got a gameday mat since he started gamedays in OGW, although he came close with an Aether Revolt one when it was between me and him for the aether revolt champion.

You attend any game days?

What about Ulvenwald Hydra in the sideboard for anti-flying?

DredgarI took a look at your binder, and I'm interested in Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker, Waste Not (foiled), Primeval Titan, Ghost Quarter, Viscera Seer, Scavenging Ooze, Ulvenwald Hydra (foiled), Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Cultivate, Master Biomancer, Gyre Sage, and Commander's Sphere. The grand total of the prices tapped out provides is $36.84, which is enough for 3 Fatal Push's and a Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip.(2 dollar difference, the grand total is $38.22

Personally I think Nissa's Pilgrimage is better than Kodama's Reach because of the potential to get 3 lands if you have a few sorceries in your graveyard already. I also think Hydra Broodmaster is one of the better hydras since it's monstrous can fill the board up with tokens. Maybe replace some of the Managorger Hydras with some. Your deck will also have trouble with removal and flying, so you can add Ulvenwald Hydra for its reach and cards like Blossoming Defense to protect your hydras from spot removal. I <3 hydras, this looks like a fun deck.

I really like the idea, but with so much mana, you might as well throw a few monsters in there as well. One or two copies of Aetherwind Basker would be a great secondary win condition. Greenbelt Rampager isn't expensive but he'd be a great energy sink. Shefet Monitor could be great ramp that also works as a huge body when you need to stabilize. Greater Sandwurm is another monster that could fit in here that you can cycle if you just need more action. Or how about Endless One? Ooo, or this could be a great deck for Ulvenwald Hydra, helping ramp you while holding down the fort.

Certainly don't include all of those, but some combination of them could really help round out the deck. My money's on a playset each of Rampager and Hydra plus a singleton copy of Basker. That would really make your opponent need their brown pants.

If you really want to ramp Nissa's Renewal and Hedron Archive are a must.

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger and Ulvenwald Hydra are good targets to ramp into.

After two months of play-testing, I'd feel remiss to not shout out elpokitolama and your suggestion of Magus of the Tabernacle. He went in for the flavor and he has been doing WORK as a tempo-changer and sac outlet. Never would have guessed it would have synergised so well.

Big ups to EternalBrewmaster as well. In light of Greater Sandwurm's abject shittiness, Ulvenwald Hydra continues to channel Shai Halud in the most gloriously synergistic ways. Nothing like casting him with Panharmonicon and Tireless Tracker on the 'field!

Yeeeah, I am playing it as an Ulvenwald Hydra for now. I just really love the art on that promo one!
