pie chart Speedy Hydra Counters

Modern* BG (Golgari) Counters




Rebuilding for Ravnica - double counter ;)



I did some changes and cleared the comments.....I was thinking a lot about adding blue but still think it would be a slowdown. I tried to playtest against popular aggro decks (simic 1cmc / boros ) and I believe it is competitive...

suggestions and comments welcome.....

In terms of removal, Bone Splinters could be quite a nice idea, using it to trigger morbid/make your undying guys bigger

maybe Gyre Sage instead of Arbor Elf ? She might fit the theme better and can help with getting that flashback on Increasing Savagery pretty quick.

Gyre Sage is nice. I like it much, however it is 2mana drop and it would slow me down a bit, on the other hand it can help to produce really big Hydra later on. i'll think about it ;)

Just wondering about the idea of your Primordial Hydra getting taken out easily. How about some hexproof on that bad larry like Alpha Authority ? Just a thought. Plus it can't be blocked by more than one thing so trample can take it's course completely.

That's why i use Ranger's Guile which is cheapest instant hexproof i know ;)

Protean Hydra + Retribution of the Ancients would be a good engine here to deal with creatures.

marsil I'd seriouslly suggest putting in atleast 2 Maelstrom Pulse cards, just thinking about my deck youd be screwed without it because of Ensnaring Bridge and also alot of cards like that would really hurt you. Doesnt matter how much u can ramp up your creatures if u cant control the things stopping them from attacking! Just a thought, i really like the deck otherwise :) I'd use Bioshift too so u can instant speed trade your counters to the creature that wont be blocked in your attack phase. I also think you could really benefit from a creature with intimidate that u can bioshift your counters too so theres no way u can be blocked. Again just my thoughts! If you have time let me know what you think of my deck, can always use advice its my tourney deck. 8 Ways To Hate (Original)

Antoniobizarro that idea is insane you can destroy a creature for every black mana u have then get the counters back doubled next turn, haha marsil you should really try that out

The only thing that I can recommend is replace Ranger's Guile with Blossoming Defense from Khaladesh

Have you considered Incremental Growth or anything like Longshot Squad, Tuskguard Captain, or Mer-Ek Nightblade?
