Hungering Hydra

Creature — Hydra

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

Hungering Hydra can't be blocked by more than one creature.

Whenever Hungering Hydra is dealt damage, put that many +1/+1 counters on it. (It must survive the damage to get the counters.)

It's been a couple of years, and the Hydra horde have matured!

Thanks for all your great suggestions while I've been away. I can see that the deck could need an overhaul with all the wonderful new cards

The following are now under consideration

New Hydras to make room for:

Say I have a 6/6 Hungering Hydra My opponent hits me with 2 Lightning Bolts and has their Satyr Firedancer target the hydra to deal 3 damage to it twice. Does the Hydra die or does it gain counters after each individual hit of damage? (becoming a 12/12 at the end)

These kinds of decks usually include cards like Hardened Scales (as mentioned above) along with cards like Experiment One, Pelt Collectorand Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig. If you're looking to make the deck a bit more competitive, definitely check these out.

As for cutting seven cards, I'd suggest 2x Fang of Shigeki, 2x Death's Presence, 2x Hungering Hydra and one of the Contortionist Troupe.

Huh, it broke, eh? Oh well, here's the list again, not hidden. (I usually accordion lists, so they don't take up three acres in comment space)

P.S. I swear I'm not being paid by Big Elementalist.

You also said you think you might need more ramp, right? Well, I counted eighteen ramp spells. Unless you play test it and you think it needs more, then it probably doesn't. Although, I think you need some more hydras.

Fortunately, I also found some hydras for you!

carpecanum I liked your idea about the spells with X, so I picked up the new 40K counters deck and threw in a good amount of those guys in the deck. Hungering Hydra seems wicked too, so I added him to the maybe board.

Something like Skanos Dragonheart gets a temporary boost that becomes a permanent boost to that Ambitious Dragonborn.

Scepter of Celebration, Sylvan Offering and other token producers would give you more creatures to take advantage of your cards that put counters on everything like Master Chef (and Loyal Guardian and Cathars' Crusade which i see in the maybe board).

I always like Hungering Hydra and Protean Hydra if you have something that pays for the X cost like Hamza (I have a Rosheen Meanderer and Animar, Soul of Elements)

KL185 Thank you for your suggestion! I'll give the Ironscale a try, though I am afraid without trample or protection from anything it might be inconsequential how big it gets. I used to run Hungering Hydra before I had genesis hydra though, and that was a very solid card.
