Ulvenwald Hydra

Creature — Hydra

Reach

Ulvenwald Hydra's power and toughness are each equal to the number of lands you control.

Ulvenwald Hydra Discussion

I wouldn't play either of those. You already run Crop Rotation so I'd add Expedition Map and Ulvenwald Hydra. They can search for Urborg or the coffers. Whatever you do don't run Tempt with Discovery because any smart player is going to search for their Wasteland/Tectonic Edge/Ghost Quarter to disrupt your combo. I noticed you don't have Silhana Ledgewalker in there, I highly recommend adding her in.

Ah I see you updated this, my iPad had died before I hot to share my suggestions, and it looks like you added a bunch of them. Here is what I was going to share, you may even find something you may want that you had missed.

Omnath, Locus of Mana instead as your command perhaps, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Mana Reflection, Beacon of Creation, Exploration, Burgeoning, Boundless Realms, Primeval Titan, Beacon of Discovery, Primeval Bounty, Retreat to Kazandu, Zendikar's Roil, Lotus Cobra, Explore Gaea's Touch, Rampaging Baloths, Ulvenwald Hydra + Rogue's Passage, Avenger of Zendikar, Embodiment of Insight, Courser of Kruphix, Dungrove Elder, Kalonian Twingrove.

Regal Behemoth, Zendikar Resurgent, Patron of the Orochi, Vernal Bloom, Caged Sun, Yavimaya Elder and Helix Pinnacle are other ideas.

Early Harvest, Tireless Tracker, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Karametra's Acolyte,then a card that I always liked was Elderscale Wurm and this works well with devotion strategies.

For lands have Rogue's Passage, Myriad Landscape, Reliquary Tower and make use of Rishkar's Expertise, Nissa's Revelation and other similar effects, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, then just forests wil do unless you want to go with Eldrazi then use Shrine of the Forsaken Gods, Sanctum of Ugin, Eye of Ugin and so on too.

I will try and help out with cutting down your creatures soon, you can if you want share decklists with others if you look within "edit" so that I am able to make changes to this deck otherwise I will do up something separate. The thing is, is that green is pretty good at making token related cards and that's why you can get away with a lot less creatures, and the ones you do have can be big such as Kozilek, Butcher of Truth for example.

yea i could help you with that:Avenger of Zendikar-Gets tons of plants and powers them upBountiful Harvest-You get tons of lifeCollective Restraint-Depending on the colors your opponents play, they have to play 3-5 mana, so maybe a sideboard card.Draco-same deal as Collective Restraint, maybe a sideboard card.Exotic Curse-woo! a Drag Down enchantment!!!Dune-Brood Nephilim-You could make a deck based around this and kill with sand. Or you could sideboard 1 or 2 depending if your opponents play certain mana colors.Evasive Action-Best counterspell for this deck.Gaea's Might-Pretty ok.Herald of Leshrac-Good for getting tons of lands at once (It's 1 land per age counter on it.Joyous Respite-Better bountiful harvestManaforce Mace-to get even more Pow. and Tou.Might of Alara-Similar to Gaea's MightPlanar Despair-BoardwipeSpore Burst-MehTromp the Domains-Pretty good for the deck you want to make.Voices from the Void-I like itUlvenwald Hydra-This is a very good card for the deck you want to make

Okay, so I'm going to suggest a bunch of cards that either ramp with lands/get lands to your hand or do something when lands hit the battlefield, and then you can decide which ones you like

Land ramp: Natural Connection, Nissa's Renewal, Pulse of Murasa, Grapple with the Past, Seek the Wilds, Splendid Reclamation, Attune with Aether/Traverse the Ulvenwald (may be a bit out of your budget), and Ulvenwald Hydra.

Does stuff with lands: Architect of the Untamed, Jaddi Offshoot, Pack Guardian(let's you do something with extra lands), Retreat to Kazandu, Territorial Baloth, Tireless Tracker (more expensive, but a fantastic card for this deck. If you are going to buy anything expensive, this is where I would splurge), and Undergrowth Champion.

Pick some cards from here, and we can narrow down what the deck should do to try to keep it budget and make it mildly competitive.

Might I reccomend Knight of the Reliquary to you as well as a small package for it? She has so much utility in my own The Giant Hippie in the Sky deck. Things I'd reccomend to go with a Knight of the Reliquary package are:

Maze of Ith to keep your shields up.

Mirrorpool has a ton of utility and can clone some pretty ridiculous things.

Mikokoro, Center of the Sea gives you political sway and can help you refuel when you need to.

Thespian's Stage can clone any land, I've gotten a second Maze of Ith many a time off of it.

Glacial Chasm is a good 'in case of emergency' card for when the Saskia Infect player locks their jaw around your ankle.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can be win moar, but I've also had it be 'win just enough'.

Gavony Township provides a great anthem effect.

While we're at it, Deserted Temple lets you reuse all your utility lands! What's better than a Maze of Ith? Two. What's better than two? Two, but you can use one of them twice. It's also a real easy way to make more mana than you know what to do with with Nykthos.

And my last reccomendations are the hideaway lands in your colours, they provide real nice surprises should you meet their conditions, which shouldn't be too hard.

If you want more ways to get to your Reliquary Package, I'd suggest Sylvan Scrying and Ulvenwald Hydra can also get you to the lands you need right when you need them. If you're worried about losing said utility lands, then Crucible of Worlds is a way to get them back, but I don't run it because I'm not filthy rich. Also, Cruxible let's you get back the lands you sacced to Knight of the Reliquary or Glacial Chasm! Or you can even sac Glacial Chasm to its Cumulative Upkeep then replay it in a pinch if you ever need it for too long.

This has gotten a bit rambly, so I'll cut it off here. TL;DR: Knight of the Reliquary is waifu 4 laifu and I'd reccomend running a package for her to death.

Just a couple of comments/ suggestions for you:

1) I highly recommend Cryptolith Rite and Ashnod's Altar in all token decks.

2) I do not see any boardwipes in your deck. I would expect to see at least a few.

3) You have no graveyard hate. In my play group there are a lot of graveyard recursion decks so I try to at least put a Tormod's Crypt or Rest in Peace in. They are only 2 so the chances of me getting them are slim most times but at least I know there is something in the deck that I could use.

4) Please add more ramp into the deck the populate mechanic/token strategy is mana intensive. Creature ramp is fine but I would expect to see some more cards like Cultivate that pull lands out of your deck. Tempt with Discovery, Perilous Forays, and Ulvenwald Hydra Might fit your deck.

I hope this helps you out.

Attune with Aether only finds basic lands, Sylvan Scrying and Ulvenwald Hydra fetch the decks game winning threat.

archfield1, I've only played one FNM and with last weeks version of this deck. I was at a disadvantage against two BG Constrictor decks, beat two other fringe decks that couldn't deal with Ormandahl. This new version will do much better against BG and should generally do well against any average random decks.

I haven't honestly considered how to beat Copy-Cat Control combo, that would be a problem, but no one's playing that around here.
