Managorger Hydra Discussion

Tylord2894 on Can I cast bioshift in …

2 months ago

Once you pass priority on Essence Harvest if no one doesn't anything, you can't respond until after Harvest has resolved.

For simplicity's sake, let's say you're in a two-player game. You cast Harvest and pass priority. Your opponent also passes. Since all players have passed priority, the topmost object on the stack will resolve. In this case, that will be your Managorger Hydra's trigger. Once that resolves, there will be another round of priority. If both you and your opponent pass, Harvest will resolve. If you wish to do something before a spell resolves, you must do it before you pass priority.

Hope this helps!!

For an example, I have a 9/9 Managorger Hydra as well as Corpsejack Menace on the field. I cast Essence Harvest and my opponent chooses not to counter or react to it, so it resolves. Can I then cast Bioshift and move 8 +1+1 counters to corpsejack (for a total of 20) and my opponent lose 20 life and therefore the game, or must I cast the bioshift prior to the essence harvest? The reason I ask is that by playing essence harvest first, I can use the bioshift in the event that a person tries to remove the creature with highest power from play. If I play the bioshift first,I may lose that creature (and its counters) as well as the bioshift and essentially waste the essence harvest.

Excellent recommendation TonyStark9001! I think I'll take out Managorger Hydra for Elder Gargaroth once it comes out!

Overwhelming Stampede great damage and trample gain. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx great devotion mana ramp. Craterhoof Behemoth another great damage and trample gain. The Ozolith to keep all your counters. I would move Force of Vigor, Natural State to sideboard. I would remove 2 Castle Garenbrig and all the Llanowar Reborn for regular Forest and 2Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. I would also remove the 4 Managorger Hydra for 4 Khalni Hydra. Move the artifacts to side. I would also recomend putting in some Primalcrux but i wouldnt suggest straying away from the creature type past that,

Panharmonicon works with some of the hydras, the ones that have triggered effects. Managorger Hydra for example already triggers once every time any player casts any spell. With Panharmonicon in play, any of those spells that are creatures or artifacts will trigger twice. Forgotten Ancient works the same way, though it is not a Hydra.

I Kept Panharmonicon mostly for Animar, Soul of Elements, but it’s also great for Gyre Sage, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds,

Hydra Broodmaster compliments Panharmonicon as well. It doesn’t have a triggered effect, but when it goes Monstrous it will set off the trigger for Gyre Sage x2 times! Imagine the size of the Hydras you’ll be able to cast with that much mana from your now ginormous Gyre Sage! Granted the Sage has to have lower power than the created tokens, so this three card combo is not going to occur frequently.

Besides creatures, there are other cards that have great synergy with Panharmonicon: The Great Henge and Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner each trigger twice for two cards drawn instead of one. Warstorm Surge and Unbound Flourishing triggering twice are game winners!

I added Inexorable Tide (gotta love doubling that proliferation) but I also removed two cards that work well with Panharmonicon: Rhystic Study would trigger twice, but I’m not a huge fan of taxing my opponents unless I’m playing Control (one permanent in 100 card deck isn’t enough for taxing to work imo) and Zendikar Resurgent which I debated long and hard about. In the end I took it out to make room for Inexorable Tide but perhaps there’s room for both?

I love deck building, especially the fine tuning aspect. I welcome more dialogue about this, or any other deck. Hope to hear more from you soon!
