Woops, sorry, Brawn isn't Modern legal (didn't realize, I mostly play Legacy) but you should use cards that have an effect when they are in your graveyard.

You could probably make great use of Grisly Salvage because it digs for creatures and lands while it increases the number of cards in your graveyard.

I've thought about Triassic Egg and honestly, what do I need it for in the deck? I don't have any expensive dinosaurs or any that I really want to keep on the battlefield at any cost. I can already return the deathtoucher. Also, it's really slow, I'd rather drop the Dingus Egg at 4 and then use the mana not for laying counters on my egg but instead destroying the enemies lands.
Another thing is the Pygmy Allosaurus, why would I "waste" space in the sideboard for a card that only has a use against black decks? Also I think the Pangosaur is more important as it works really well against stompy decks that don't run that many lands, while stompy decks are also more of a threat to this deck due to their faster aggro than black ones. I think I have enough of an answer to black with Lava Runner.

Indeed, I missed that Felidar Guardian is banned, since this is my first T2 deck.
I'll replace it asap.

Maybe you want to check out the T2 I just made focused on cats: Lots of Kitties (T2)

Hey, I've made my own little hydra deck, based on your idea and combined with my suggestions, maybe it inspires you!
July 9, 2017 8:48 a.m.
I think there are 2 main problems about this deck:
First one is, that your mana base is too slow, cards like Kozilek's Channeler simply aren't worth it (-> why would you pay 5 for a creature which isn't useful for anything but mana?)
The second one is, as I personally think, that you should focus on 1 or 2 different hydras, and not include any you can find, because if you build the deck around 1 or 2 cards, you can focus more on their unique mechanics (i.e. Kalonian Hydra) and therefore have a stronger core.
But I wouldn't complain if I didn't have any suggestions:
- Llanowar Elves are fine, but I doubt that you will ever need more than 4, maybe split them 3/3 with Elvish Mystic.
- Consider ramping cards like Rampant Growth or Cultivate (or Dawntreader Elk but I'll mention it later).
- Maybe Sac-Lands would do (Havenwood Battleground).
- Hardened Scales are basically your best friend in an Hydra deck, because every Hydra gets more counters (yay) and you can play with other +1/+1 counter cards like...
- Burst of Strength, Hunger of the Howlpack (Dawntreader Elk!), or Mutant's Prey, which include utility and removal.
- Consider creatures like Managorger Hydra (cheap hydra that goes nuts with Hardened Scales), Nessian Wilds Ravager (for removal] or Vastwood Hydra.
- Vastwood Hydra works very will with necessary healing spells like Momentous Fall, as you can distribute the counters on other hydras.
- I'd suggest Kalonian Hydra and Primordial Hydra as main damage dealers.
- Fun combos like Karametra's Favor + Gilder Bairn works well with hydras.
- Savage Summoning when playing against blue (sideboard if you want)
I hope I've made some good suggestions on improval

I guess if you really want to play Jund dragons you won't be able to avoid fetchlands.
Manamorphose would help a lot too.

I updated the deck and the description.
The second most important thing is removal after cutting the enemie's mana resources, so I decided for 3 Ulvenwald Tracker but kept 2 Predatory Urge since the Tracker needs mana, and mana can be invested better in the lategame.
I've removed the Gnarlid Pack because the lategame potential is already pretty high, looking at the ability to clear the enite battlefield from opposing creatures and being able to create tons of tokens. Because of that I think this deck also doesn't need the Wild Beastmaster.
Yeva, Nature's Herald indeed is spicy, but feels kind of a 2GG waste in my opinion, since you don't really need the flash imho - what's your opponent going to do to you? He can't cast many spells and my creatures can either fight or are bigger.
But after all: Thank you very much for you rsuggestions, I simply don't know how I missed the Winter Orb combo.

Updated the deck & description now.
Woah, Insist IS sweet, but what to replace?
This deck sadly lacks the resources for winterorb.

Savage Punch is blasphemic, it hurst the bears!
July 6, 2017 10:17 a.m.
I have thought about Striped Bears, since the card draw is indeed sweet, but in comparison to other 4 mana drops (of which this deck has way too many already, look at the mana curve) they're maybe not worth it. Druid's Familiar for an instance boosts too well to be replaced, and Razorclaw Bear has greater offensive potential. Also, for actually being a weenie for 4, you can't tutor the Striped Bears with Woodland Bellower. But I'll put them into the maybeboard, card draw somehow is kinda necessary in this deck.
To be honest I haven't even played this deck yet, it's purely theory, I'll update when I've tested it a few times.

Hey, thanks for your suggestions!
Werebear is already included.
The problem with Ulvenwald Bear is, that it has little utility if I don't play a graveyard style deck, but I will include it in the maybeboard.
Now to Words of Wilding: I have decided against it, because if I include it I also have to include combo cards which aren't bear themed. I even found an infinite combo with it, consisting of Words of Wilding, Fecundity and Ashnod's Altar (yes, the sacrificed tokens trigger Fecundity).Another strong combo is Words of Wilding and Sylvan Library, but as mentioned, the necessary cards for these combos aren't bear themed and Words of Wilding alone isn't exactly powerful.
Those islandwalking Bears will be in the sideboard though.

But maybe you could include Street Wraith (instead of Fatal Push), because you already got enough removal and the deck lacks a little bit of card draw. Also your life shouldn't be a problem since you leech from Blood Artist and Suture Priest.
Also consider Authority of the Consuls, because this way you can drop your big creatures while being able to attack with the others (since the opponent's creatures, or at least those you just spawned, are tapped, works great with Mercy Killing as well). Might replace Suture Priest, but I'm not quite sure.

If it's about doubling your opponents tokens (which I don't think is necessary, because that card is manawise expensive AF) then Primal Vigor is your best friend.
Nonetheless this deck is hilarious, I've always wondered what kind of combos there are with these enemy-token-generators. Great idea, great deck, +1 from me.
