I like the direction you're going in. I just have a problem with the creatures that don't do enough outside of combining with your commander. These include: Banehound , Mirri the Cursed , Mistcutter Hydra , and Vampire Nighthawk . Hexproof and some form of evasion are probably the most important keywords you want, so you can prioritize cards that give you those, but those creatures should also function well outside of being sacrificed for your commander. I also think you should give a little more focus to Indestructible.

I think your curve could be smoothed out a little. Good turn 1 plays like Search for Tomorrow or Mystic Remora would improve your early game a lot.

Liking it. Maywant to trade Mistcutter Hydra for Primordial Hydra since it's protection from blue means Vorel can't target it

Hydra tribal with Gargos, Vicious Watcher and Descendants' Path on the field. I cast Worldly Tutor and grab Mistcutter Hydra to go on top of library. On my upkeep, do I have a 4/4 hydra thanks to Gargos' ability, or since I'm not paying the casting cost due to Path, is it 0/0 ?

Secondly, can the Path be used to put morph creatures in play face down if they share a creature type? Or even better, will it cast their morph cost for free? ie Hooded Hydra

Thank you for ur input. I know this deck is maybe a bit slow for really competitive modern but I like to build fun weird decks lol. I agree all the creatures should be hydras. I did contemplate Llanowar Elves when I was first coming up with this. I think I will swap out a few Forrest’s for islands. And maybe get Mistcutter Hydra to the sideboard.

If a card has X in its casting cost, its CMC takes into account whatever value was chosen for X while on the stack. Anywhere/anytime else, X is considered to be 0 for calculating CMC.

(See the Comprehensive Rules, 107.3f.)

So yes, you can kill Mistcutter Hydra with Fatal Push .

Note that the way your question is worded, the answer is yes for a slightly different reason - you are allowed to cast Push on any creature, regardless of CMC. It just won't destroy the creature if the CMC requirement isn't met.

When Mistcutter Hydra is anywhere but the battlefield, it's CMC is 1. If someone casts it, making X = 6, does its CMC become 7 or does it stay at 1?

So basically can I cast Fatal Push on it?

Whoops didn't notice that Mistcutter Hydra was already in the deck, sorry about that. I would instead of go with Hooded Hydra as it has some built in protection already.
