Hail Hydra!!

Commander / EDH



This deck abuses Selvala, Heart of the Wilds to pump out and pump up hydras. It is a straight forward deck to play but a blast to play.

I cannot stress enough how much fun it is to play this deck. There is a good amount of card draw in this deck and plenty of mana ramp. So it does not take much for this deck to take off.

Took out Doubling Season and Primal Vigor because they were drawing to much hate. Added Nissa, Vital Force and Lignify. The extra removal is nice and Nissa has some graveyard recursion. Overall think this is the right move.

Vedalken Orrery along with Quest for Renewal and I have built my own quasi Prophet of Kruphix. It is very easy to get Quest for Renewal active, between the Commander's tap ability and wanting to swing out.

When I get my hands on a Traverse the Outlands, I will be finding a spot for it in the deck.

As I stated earlier, if you like mana ramp, drawing cards, and big creatures; you will love this deck. The curve is nice and smooth. It digs through the deck surprisingly fast. While this is not a Tier 1 deck, it can get scary for your opponents fast. The speed at which it can spit out big creatures can be it's weakness, as it paints a target on you. Try not to get too greedy as mass removal can be a problem; however, the deck does recover and rebuild it's board state quickly.

Let me know what you think in the comments.
