Hooded Hydra

Creature — Snake Hydra

Hooded Hydra enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it.

When Hooded Hydra is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, create a 1/1 green Snake creature token onto the battlefield for each +1/+1 counter on it.

Morph (You may cast this card face down as a 2/2 creature for . You may turn it face up at any time for its morph cost.)

Hooded Hydra is a fun creature to consider.

I feel like if anything is on the chopping block it's Sudden Substitution . I like it because it's a spell steal (no creatures unfortunately) and it was in the original precon I bought but I think the scenarios where you're gonna feel really good about casting it are gonna be rare. Plus there's also multiple counter spells in the form of morphs, I'm not convinced we need another one? I'm not sure.

As you can tell, the maybe board is pretty stacked with good options but I recently came upon the following combo: Aphetto Alchemist + Illusionist's Bracers to go infinite with any mana rock or with another morph - Fledgling Mawcor - for infinite damage.

Pros: There are a couple of morphs that can easily be replaced for this combo ( Hooded Hydra and Thelonite Hermit ) so we don't remove any fuel from the deck. The combo will instantly win, and involves two morphs/is on flavor.

Cons: If your playgroup doesn't like infinite combos this is an obvious no go. Additionally, something has to be cut for Illusionist's Bracers . This decklist is super tight already (perhaps Sudden Substitution can be cut as above) and Illusionist's Bracers provides literally no value or synergy in this deck other than being a combo piece. Also, we don't have any particular ways to abuse infinite mana outside of it's inherent value.

Let me know if you think I should include this combo. I'm still undecided. Would it be better just to throw in a Rhystic Study instead?

Creature - Squirrel Guardian

Reach, Defender

Whenever a creature with flying attacks you or a Planeswalker you control, ~ deals 1 damage to it.

Whenever a creature with flying dies, create a 1/1 green squirrel creature token.


Create a piñata style card (such as Hooded Hydra ).

Hey, you're welcome. Do you own all the cards in the sideboard? There's several cards in the sideboard that are better than cards in the main deck.

If you choose to add the two card infinite green mana combo these are some changes to consider:

Sabertooth is a very good green creature with or without the combo. It's ability is repeatable and it gives you lots of value from creatures who have an enter the battlefield (ETB) ability by bouncing the creature and then casting it again. Genesis Hydra is a unique creature in green since it can cheat any nonland permanent with CMC X or less you reveal from X cards onto the battlefield which includes not just a creature, but also an enchantment, artifact or Planeswalker. Being able to repeat this effect with Sabertooth can give you a lot of value in mono green.
