Not sure about Simic hydra? never checked it as green ramp can be really fast.

I used to play the Utopia Sprawl but it didn't feel as fast as those Elvish Archdruid . I like the suggestion of Voyaging Satyr as it works like an Arbor Elf . Gyre Sage also is a bit to slow i think as you have to spawn creatures first to ramp the mana while the goal should be to ramp mana to spawn creatures but will play test it.

Deff gonna swap Pit Fight for Ram Through , seems like a good hitter.

Not sure about Hydra Broodmaster because of the lack of trample and the usability of the already added hydras. It will be a full turn to use the monstrosity and then a full turn to attack. I'm thinking to sideboard 2 of them for multiplayer or against non-blue decks and swap them with Mistcutter Hydra .

Unbound Flourishing I will deff add.

To clarify, in a cost is 0 anywhere but the stack. Mistcutter Hydra has a mana value of 1 when it's in play, in your hand, graveyard, library, etc. The only time it's anything else is when it's being cast, when you pick a value for and pay it. On the stack, it has a mana value of X + 1, and when the spell resolves it puts Mistcutter Hydra into play (with a mana value of 1 again) and the ability looks back to what was on the stack to determine how many counters it enters with.

cost Hydras (let's say Mistcutter Hydra so we have an example card) generally enter the battlefield with a number of +1/+1 counters defined by paid for the spell they were cast as. A token copy of a Hydra creature in play, regardless of when it's created, will have X be 0 because that's only a property of the spell, not the card or the creature. To get a copy of a Hydra that comes in with counters, you need something like Double Major (which might be the only one, actually) that copies it while it's still a spell on the stack.

Generally, a token copy of an Hydra will just enter as a 0/0 and die. Using a spell or Aura to boost its toughness is too slow, but cards like Glorious Anthem can keep it alive as a 1/1 or so.

Sounds like he's playing a bit of a control list. If he's doing that, just take a traditional anti-control strategy. There's really not a Rest in Peace that works for this specific thing, but that's not a problem, because I'm assuming he's using Mastermind's Acquisition in particular(there aren't really any other cards outside Glittering Wish that do the SB tutoring for creatures).

Mind Rot effects are pretty good, Duress is probably worth it, then any creature with hexproof is probably worth it. Or anything that says "can't be countered" in this case, like Mistcutter Hydra .

An opponent casts Mistcutter Hydra at 4/4. I cast Soul Sear . My opponent thinks for a little bit and then casts Path to Exile on his mistcutter Hydra. Which spell actually resolves, the Soul Sear or Path to Exile?

There's not a lot of thematic overlap, but Hydras are often paired with Elves because they can take advantage of every bit of mana Elves can create. They're also big and stompy. Highlights include Mistcutter Hydra , Managorger Hydra , Lifeblood Hydra , Genesis Hydra etc.
