The deck looks fine. There are a bunch of cards that feel too slow to run personally (most notably Gyre Sage, Swarm Shambler, Tireless Tracker, Voracious Hydra). There’re also a bunch of cards i’d be expecting a deck like this to have which appear to be missing (Pelt Collector, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Cloudfin Raptor, Thrummingbird). So the list overall feels ok, but not as fine-tuned as it could be, imo.

As far as bad matchups, that’s where your sideboard comes in - at the moment I would suggest this is the spot that needs the most attention if you’re getting competitive.

Some sideboard cards to consider:

Now, the quantities of the above will depend on your own local meta, as well as how badly they scare your deck. Sideboard choices should always be focused towards your local competitive playgroup. Saying that, the above mentioned suggestions are likely to come in handy.

Other things to consider as far as good-vs-bad matchups, for your sideboard choices:

  • don’t worry about control, imo. You should be aiming to be fast enough to have the advantage. Saying that, do consider the likes of Veil of Summer if it’s an issue (though i would say, if it is an issue, it’s because your mainboard isn’t tuned enough).

  • Board wipes feel like they could pose a big threat for you

  • Burn, and other hyper-aggro decks are probably going to have an advantage

Stuff I'd consider in no particular order.

Nature's Lore

Voracious Hydra

Steelbane Hydra - this one in particular has what you're looking for in enchantment hate, but I'll have a section specifically for that too.

Curse of the Swine

Hydroid Krasis - a little above your price range, but a fantastic hydra.

Elementalist's Palette

Lifeblood Hydra - just under 10 bucks, definitely a solid upgrade.

Vorel of the Hull Clade

Evolution Sage

Death Denied

Three Visits

Skyshroud Claim

Explosive Vegetation

Exponential Growth

Greater Good

Unbound Flourishing

I'd also consider looking up all the different duals that show up in sultai and picking up some of the cheaper ones? I google "word for the color identity of the deck I'm playing and dual lands" and theres a few sites there generally with prices. Also going up like, 3/4 more lands since 33 seems slim and you don't have a lot of mana rocks/dorks to shore that up.

enchantment removal I've used/like/I think would be good here.

Krosan Grip

Gaze of Granite

Pest Infestation

Sultai Charm

Maelstrom Pulse

Molder

Windgrace's Judgment

As for stuff I'd cut.

Edge of Autumn - theres better ramp cards and I suggested a few above

Grow from the Ashes - see above

Font of Fertility - see above

Frontier Siege - this seems kinda medium if all were doing with it is adding 2 extra mana, I like that it's modal but you're never going to pick that mode since we don't have a lot of flyers in hydras.

Icy Blast - I see where you're coming from with this, and I think it could definitely put in work, but I also feel like theres probably either hard removal that you could play for the same amount of mana that would make this useful, or something similar.

Personally I'd also cut the counter spells for more stuff that draws/removes but I understand why they're here.

I hope this helps, sorry if it's long winded, and good luck with the list!!

I'd prefer Primordial Hydra to Apex Devastator here. It doesn't need Rancor or Hydra's Growth to pose a serious threat and it pairs well with Kalonian Hydra . Also, cascading into Voracious Hydra is pretty awkward.

Erza420 I see your point but I'm the token deck I likely destroyed creatures my opponent controlled that were much more scary than ones I have. They could have say for instance a Beast Whisperer , a Eternal Witness , a God-Eternal Rhonas , and a Voracious Hydra . And I have 10 1/1 soldier tokens, a Selvala, Explorer Returned and a 0/1 eldrazi token. I cast March of Souls and basically replace all those creatures with 1/1 flyers. Now that player has downgraded to 5 1/1 flyers and I have not downgraded and stayed then same with 12 1/1 flyers. But I'm a token deck I prepared for the wipe. So I have casted Cathars' Crusade prior to it. Or I casted Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite the next turn. Or I had Doubling Season out before casting March of Souls . Or I cast Beastmaster Ascension befor I attack with them. This is why it's perfect Erza420 and that's why more people should be playing it in the right token deck and build.

bakeraj4 Right, i think its called Wildwood Scourge . I've considered using it, but I'm sticking with Voracious Hydra for now because it has evasion (Trample) and a form of removal. I like your idea of running Steel Overseer and Knight of Autumn , however, i think I would need more artifact creatures in order to consistently get value out of Steel Overseer (crossing my fingers that they unban Walking Ballista ). I'm all for using Knight of Autumn , I'll probably end up taking out Avatar of the Resolute . I'll also consider using Inscription of Abundance , like you said. Thanks so much for the advice!

Upgrades

Beast Whisperer -> The Great Henge

Yavimaya Dryad -> Yavimaya Elder

Nissa, Steward of Elements -> Nissa of Shadowed Boughs

Cut:

Capricopian würde ich wohl kicken

Illusory Ambusher ist mir zu teuer

Vorapede GGG, da gibts für 5cmc sicher schönere, oder?

Propaganda

Maybe

Heroic Intervention

Assassin's Trophy

Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath

Voracious Hydra

Pollywog und Sea-dasher sind stark genug um sie zu spielen. Carddraw/Filter und Flash sind nicht zu unterschätzen mit Mutate

Exsanguinate is an all star in x spells matter decks. I’m also surprised to see a hydra tribal without Voracious Hydra
