Sorin_Markov_1947 thanks for the suggestions! I did consider the sentinels at one point but I found that with Stonecoil it's not that difficult to deal with opposing fliers and my other creatures just work too well in the deck to be able to cut for it anyway, I couldn't find a niche in practice where I wished I had a sentinel over whatever else I happened to draw outside of games where I flooded. Generally a stonecoil on turn 3 or 4 can block as much as needed to let the deck scale up to find other answers, and if my opponent isn't intent on playing the board early a crystalline giant tends to take care of our needs.
The main idea of the deck is to play through Forsaken Monument to aim for either Ugin or straight card advantage, we set up a factory with Lithoform Engine and look to do things like tap 5 lands to cast Chrome Replicator and copy it with lithoform to get 4 6/6 creatures, or stack up a Crawling Barrens to a 30/30 or so, or cast and copy a Stonecoil Serpent at x=16 for a pair of 18/18 tramplers. Everything else is pretty much card advantage and protection.
To this end I do agree that 4 Ugins and Mazeminds would be a great move, and since this list hasn't been upgraded since the days of Tergrid meta I'd be happy to cut Weathered Runestone to complete those playsets and add something like a Shadowspear in the spare slot. The other thing I noticed I didn't include in this build was Skyclave Relic , my other ramp piece in case I don't find my Palladium Myr and the reason that Throne of Makindi gets a spot on the mana base. I think from the list above I'd probably just take out all 3 runestones and 1 copy of Cosmos Elixir to add a 4th each of Ugin and Mazemind as well as 2 Relics.

Okay, you have a plan. If you want to get this into Modern, how competitive do you want to be and how much money are you willing to spend?
You won't get the full effect of Mythos of Nethroi unless you have a Lotus Cobra out, so right now it's expensive creature removal with a conditional upside. Switch it for another Mortality Spear , Maelstrom Pulse , Abrupt Decay , or Assassin's Trophy , depending on your budget. If you add , consider Felidar Sovereign .
Conduit of Ruin only finds It That Betrays , Avenger of Zendikar , and Void Beckoner , and only Void Beckoner might have some use in your main strategy. Take those out and build a different deck around them.

Yes. Protection stops multicoloured creatures from blocking the Stonecoil Serpent but it doesn't stop the Serpent from blocking those creatures.
(Those creatures won't deal damage to the Serpent; the Serpent will deal damage to those creatures).
Protection is a one way transaction. =)

Since Stonecoil Serpent has protection from multicolored, can I use this creature to block a multi-colored creature an opponent is swinging with?

Also maybe Gemrazer in the sideboard? T2 Stonecoil Serpent into T3 Gemrazer mutate gives you a T3 6/6 Trample/Reach to swing in with, and also blow up an artifact/enchantment if they have one out... Sorry for double commenting..

Stonecoil Serpent is one of my favorite cards! What about adding Nissa, Voice of Zendikar ? And I think you can get better cards than the instants you're using that give +P/+T for a turn. Instead of one of those that only give per turn, maybe use Inspiring Call ? How about Avatar of the Resolute as a creature choice?

Heyoo, hope you don't find this weird. I was bored and just looking through the decklist you sent me 5ever ago. I had some thoughts on cards you might want to consider, just food for thought.
Overwhelming Stampede - awesome sorc, and you normally have at least 1 stupidly massive creature. 3 to 4 dollars.
Zendikar Resurgent - double your mana, draw cards for playing creatures, 4 bucks.
Stonecoil Serpent - not a hydra, but an X spell for you to double counters on later with vorel. I have one of these that you can just have, its like 4 or 5 bucks.
Courage in Crisis - counter on a creature and a proliferate trigger for 3 mana, pretty solid. trash common card super cheap.
Invigorating Surge - another super cheap instant, doubles counters similar to vorel's ability.
Solidarity of Heroes - same effect, more double trouble ;).
Inexorable Tide - proliferate whenever you cast a spell... pretty OP. 5 bucks.
Increasing Savagery - wowsa, that's a lot of counters, and ONLY A DOLLAR. nasty.
Bred for the Hunt - Draw cards for creatures with counters dealing dmg, cheap too.
Rampant Growth - great counterspell in these colors, worth considering since you cast really expensive spells. 1 doll hair.
Lazotep Plating - you probably have 10 of these lying around. way to protect your shiz.
Beast Within - staple removal in green.
Zameck Guildmage card draw dawg, card draw for counters. tight tight tight.
Its practically hydra tribal, get yo'self a Coat of Arms , I think you already have one in your binder.
If you decide to shell out on some cards, I think a few more expensive cards worth your while would be: Primal Vigor Branching Evolution Cyclonic Rift Rampant Growth - I have this in my Kenrith deck, its pretty great. Double Vorel's effectiveness with an equipment.
Alrighty, my rant is over.
