Voracious Hydra Discussion

MowMyLawn on Abzan Scales

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

Profet93 on Xenagos, I've Got You Here For 3 Minutes

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.

This is an awesome deck ..I dig what you are doing...I know Most of these aren't elves but here are my main thoughts... maybe Aggressive Mammoth for universal trample what's cooler than an elf army that has trample..Majestic Myriarch because your creature output is off the chain and it doubles the power..and an elfy suggestion Presence of Gond most notable when paired multi color ie Midnight Guard but over all might fit well with this deck. For counter fun via Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar add counters etc so as expensive and frankly overused as it is Doubling Season may be helpful though you did say budget...so my suggestion would be some of the hydras instead Primordial Hydra, Voracious Hydra, Hungering Hydra, Vastwood Hydra which let you play early or build up and the The Ozolith to keep the extra..As for PlanesWalkers Any of the Nissa's would help you out tremendously but the one I thought for sure you would have for sure was Nissa Revane...the only potential problems I see with this deck in general is its lack of flying and or reach / protection from flying...so might want a few spiders etc Watcher in the Web is particularly gnarly and Arboreal Grazer has the benefit of low mana cost and land fetch.

Thanks again! Glad you found Indomitable Stomps -- (Fight Club/Stompy) inspiring enough to folder. I'm planning on adding Kogla, the Titan Ape and Voracious Hydra, and perhaps Thorn Mammoth for extra fight-itude. Also Ghalta, Primal Hunger cuz she's big
