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:

DreadKhan on You'll have to toss me! (Don't Tell the Elf)

Have you thought about Neyith of the Dire Hunt and Rionya, Fire Dancer for this? Since you often have big creatures there is Chandra's Ignition, and Windswift Slice manages to be the world's biggest flavor fail and win at the same time, at least nobody will miss those elves when you sacrifice them! Two-Handed Axe might fit (and it's a big ax!), Inquisitor's Flail is unfortunately not an ax but is also very good if Gimli has high toughness.

I'm not sure how big your tallest creatures end up, but Monstrous Onslaught is very good with an excessively big creature.

Cool deck!

DreadKhan on Kresh of the savage horde

A couple more I thought of, Monstrous Onslaught sounds pretty good if Kresh has over 20 power, good odds of being able to 1-shot someone that turn. I'm not sure if it's 'too fast', but Chandra's Ignition would be pretty easy to win off of, you just need a big Kresh and to resolve your spell.

KBK7101 I think the instant speed on Momentous Fall is a huge upside over Life's Legacy because otherwise you just get hit with creature removal.

But I really like Fungal Sprouting and Monstrous Onslaught, I don't think I've seen them before.

Fungal Sprouting and Spontaneous Generation have the ability to explode your board state if you're looking to make more tokens.

Life's Legacy is another way to draw stupid amounts of cards. Even though it's only a sorcery, I prefer this card to Momentous Fall because it's a lot cheaper to cast. You do lose out on the lifegain portion, though...

Monstrous Onslaught is basically a green board wipe for this kind of deck.

Finally, all of these recommendations come from a deck that I have for this last recommendation... Multani, Maro-Sorcerer. While it's on the Reserved List, it's not terribly expensive at the moment ($3-6) and is an incredible card with enough card draw support, which you clearly have! It can be a bit of a pain to keep track of his power/toughness but there was an episode of I Hate Your Deck on Youtube where Multani was played and they were basically like "We'll keep track of it when it matters" which can make things a lot easier.

If you're interested, the deck is here : Multani, Maro-Sorcerer - Growth Spiral (v1.6)

Jabberjaw46 on Moon’s Blessing

If you're looking for some mean flavor, then my second favorite card of all time Blood Moon is fantastic!

Also, I always recommend at least 1-2 boardwipes in ANY deck, some of my favorites in R/G:

Blasphemous Act 10/10

Chain Reaction 10/10

Chandra's Ignition 8/10

Monstrous Onslaught 7/10

Cards like The Ozolith, Winding Constrictor and Corpsejack Menace might be worth a look. Same with Binding the Old Gods, Monstrous Onslaught and Hunter's Insight.
