Creature — Hydra
Kalonian Hydra enters the battlefield with four +1/+1 counters on it.
Whenever Kalonian Hydra attacks, double the number of +1/+1 counters on each creature you control.

Varolz is probably my favorite deck that I've built so far, but the ideal route is to go with a elf ball shell. Play all the dorks you can find because 1) they are very early mana ramp, 2) you can sac them to protect your commander, and 3) you can scavenge them when you're done with them (nice thing is the elves usually pay for themselves, float mana, sac and use it to scavenge). Don't forget Birds of Paradise
That is step # 1 for consistency mana to do crazy stuff. Step 2 is either consistent mill, or consistent tutor, or both. For the mill plan, best card to use is Mesmeric Orb . Get that turn 1 with soul ring, and you're going places. There are a lot of budget options to mill. On the other hand, with the tutors you'll be more consistent and basically turn into an one-turn-kill with either Phyrexian Dreadnought or Death's Shadow on your commander or something that has infect.
Cards to think about, as they have work wonders for me
Jarad's Orders you combo that with Elvish Spirit Guide + Phyrexian Dreadnought . It's beautifully on curve. 1 dork, turn 2 commander, turn 3, Jarad's Orders to get it, and you're swinging on turn 3 with 14 power (commander no doubt)
Berserk is insane with this style of deck
Green Sun's Zenith is very good tutor in a creature style deck
Sylvan Safekeeper is a very good protection card
Solidarity of Heroes doubles those counters on the cheap
Kalonian Hydra get's very big, very fast in this deck.
Chord of Calling works well in an elf ball deck
Necropotence is pretty busted
and my pet card Not of This World . Once you have put a large amount of counters on a creature, probably want to protect it....with a free colorless counterspell.

Kalonian Hydra ? Seems like a dope way to slam the door shut by making your attacking hydras even bigger.

This is odd. That card doesn't say reveal them or it anywhere on the card. So I think cheating with this is real easy lol. When you go through these motions, that can make people at the table think you are cheating and make people salty.
With all of that being said. It's a strong effect. I think an effect like that will find 1 of the 3 most powerful creatures in the deck ( Kalonian Hydra , Primordial Hydra , and Vigor ) after about 2 or 3 creatures entering the battlefield. I like this one but not alot.

Myth is rad. I wish it was draw two... and maybe a third thing. Or just if it just cost 1 mana lol
Souls might is p good for Skullbriar or Kalonian Hydra , but it’s also shoehorned
I prefer Solidarity of Heroes over biogenic. But it gets stumped if you don’t have counters already out
