First of all, what a fun deck! A couple of adjustments - I don't know that you have enough elemental synergy to really get value out of Risen Reef , although I could see where it would be interesting as a target for copying. I think your mana base may need a little work - you have a lot of lands that come in tapped. I would drop Rimewood Falls , Thriving Isle and Thriving Grove , and replace with maybe 1 utility and 2 basics. Here are a few other things you may want to consider for cards to include:

Vedalken AEthermage will search up any Wizard in your deck, including Biovisionary and Adrix and Nev, Twincasters .

Selesnya Eulogist will make copies of any token you have. The keyword Populate definitely may come in handy here.

Sporemound is a repeatable token generator.

Presence of Gond and Intruder Alarm is an infinite token-generating combo.

Rogue's Passage is in pretty much all my commander decks, as is Elixir of Immortality . Never know when a clutch unblockable creature or graveyard reset to prevent drawing out will come in handy.

Other ideas for card draw: Fathom Mage , Elemental Bond , Garruk's Packleader , Soul of the Harvest , Armorcraft Judge , Generous Patron , Regal Force .

Good luck! I bet you will have lots of fun with this deck!

Generous Patron might work, it is really sneaky with a commander that can put counters on an opponent's creature. Savra, Queen of the Golgari might also be helpful in here.

NEW

= 13 cmc

These are the incoming changes guys. Expect a fully fleshed out primer implementing all of these. Also, the Moxfield primer is just going to be a redirect to the T/O primer. (Sorry guys, keeping up with multiple primers is a giant pain in the ass and I got ton on my plate atm).

Eventually I'll re-port the whole updated primer back to Moxfield.

If want to discuss these changes with the whole Yeva community, myself included join our server:

CyborgAeon: Yedora, Grave Gardener is unfortunately too costly for a value/protection spell, especially when most of the hate I encounter is targeted and 5 mana for some synergy isn't really feasible.

As for Ecological Appreciation , it's really a worse Tooth and Nail and the opponents picking the piles makes assembling viable ones that much harder.

Just a heads up for those on the thread, you can stay up to date with the on-goings of the list, like the above-mentioned cards on the discord!

Here's what's being tested at the moment:

skeletonkey8: It might get cut again, but the goal was to go infinite with Archfiend and Generous Patron. I can usually draw enough to discard from hand size, and if I can't, Archfiend always cycles itself :)

heavyuser: A very strong case could be made for it if Paradox Engine got unbanned, but as it stands, it really isn't necessary. It was a very essential hail mary, since all of the weight was on Temur Sabertooth before, but we now have 3 viable combos and they're all tutorable.

However, please note that Generous Patron is consistently on the chopping block, and if you lack the proper infinite mana line and can't bounce it repeatedly it's pretty much a 3 for 2 when you need an outlet. You could make a consideration for it there, since infinite mana and Genesis Hydra is as good as having Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, which has become the best kind of outlet (ones we can sink our mana into).

As it stands, that would be the best swap, but in reality, we're really looking to replace Generous Patron with another Heartwood Storyteller, Runic Armasaur, Glademuse, or Beast Whisperer. Until we get another creature like that to replace her, she's just the "best" at what she does in monogreen.

If you want to keep playing with Genesis Hydra, swap patron out and let us know how that goes! :)
