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

You described almost every Xenagos deck, mine included. You hit it right on the head.

As you said, we either have it or we don't. With no way to tutor card draw, adding more helps increase the odds of maintaining gas

Lifeblood Hydra - Not necessary but always welcome on X = 3 or more. Even if they destroy it, you still get value, has built in evasion and has a high ceiling.

Life's Legacy - If blue is too prevalent in your meta, ignore this suggestion

Momentous Fall - Similar to above, but would still put in despite blue, and despite the fact that its hard to have 4 mana after casting a beater. But similar to rishkar's expertise, I argue the potential card draw is worth the risk. You usually use this in response to opponent's removal

Bonders' Enclave - Never hurts, coudl replace a fetch land possibly

Elder Gargaroth - Makes beasts for blockers/draw spells, draws cards and gains life in a pinch.

Harmonize - Reliable draw

Beast Within - Hits lands too. Very versatile

Decimate - Hull breach's older brother

Inferno Titan - Damage

Kogla, the Titan Ape - Fight + Naturalize, pretty good. Very fun if you ran eternal witness

Voracious Hydra - Removal with high ceiling and built in evasion

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - Ramp on steroids

Ancient Tomb - Ramp for T3 Commander

Turntimber, Serpentine Wood - A better See the Unwritten

Berserk - Don't worry, malignus doesn't have trample. Bonus points if you use it on Selvala or on an opponent's creature who is attacking another opponent.

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection

Blighted Woodland/Myriad Landscape - Ramp

Reliquary Tower - For when you draw 10+ cards

Raging Ravine/Dread Statuary - Manland to be used for a draw spell

Be sure to lmk what you think of each suggestion. Some will work better for you than others. I see you run some dorks so I know you don't want too many nonbasics, but with all the ramp in Xenagos, I think we can be a little greedy. If you can't find room, I have ideas for cuts.
