B/G/R Hydra Trample




Hi, I am just 2 month into MTG family, recently I was building a trample hydra deck. Please if you can advise me some idea for building.

At moment, I didn't sideboard yet, not so sure what to do, need help from you guys.

Thank you so much

The concept is summon a large dmg hydra to try win by a turn instantly.

Turn 1: play Arbor Elf

Turn 2: play Somberwald Sage

Turn 3: play Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch and/or Somberwald Sage , depend on situation

Turn 4: play Corpsejack Menace and/or Boros Reckoner

If nothing go wrong at turn 5 you will have 12 mana to cast spell.

Turn 5: play your hydra with 10 mana, save 2 for Pit Fight or Flesh / Blood or enchantment

Sometime have to change plan according different situation. Hope can get some comment/advise. Thanks


  1. Remove Vampire Nighthawk replace with Boros Reckoner
  2. Remove Fling to Flesh / Blood, because blood can done the same effect and without scarified creature.
  3. Remove Mizzium Mortars replace with Bonfire of the Damned and Pit Fight, Pit Fight is very good to combo with Target your Hydra to Fight Boros Reckoner to deal direct dmg. Pit Fight is instant.
  4. Remove 2x Madcap Skills replace with Rancor

The problem with hydra decks are once they see a Primordial Hydra they throw every kill spell they have at it. I run a similar black green Hydra deck and the most useful card I've found for it is Alpha Authority . It gives it hexproof and since it's a trample deck, it doesn't allow them to block with multiple creatures.
