Whiptongue Hydra

Creature — Lizard Hydra


When this enters the battlefield, destroy all creatures with flying. Put a +1/+1 counter on this for each creature destroyed this way.

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:

Oh, and regarding air defense:

Bower Passage and Dense Canopy are basically two copies of the same card. Sandwurm Convergence is great defense against flying armies. Whiptongue Hydra isn't on theme, but a great card still. If you want something cheap, Arashi, the Sky Asunder is a cent card with two useful modes for your purpose. Finally, Scarecrow is old and weird and weak, but maybe you like it.

Statue is more about slowing your opponents down then the damage effect, but yeah if the damage was on upkeep that would be much better for Belbe. I think you could cut Sandwurm Convergence. It's expensive, slow, and you don't really need it as a finisher. The anti-air effect is nice, but unless you meta is super flyer heavy (and if that is the case, let me introduce you to Whiptongue Hydra), you have enough creatures with flying to protect yourself.

Treasures are usually a lot more useful as they're essentially storable mana that count as token artifact permanents and trigger sacrifice cards.

As far as removable cards, Whiptongue Hydra really sticks out to me, as well as Deathreap Ritual and Into the Wilds.

For flying hate cards Hurricane/Squall Line, Spidersilk Armor/Gravity Well, Whiptongue Hydra are all great fly haters and Bower Passage makes your elves unblockable to fliers. While none of these should be thrown into your main board some should make it into side board if you really can't handle your friends flying spirits.

Card to help you:

Tyvar Kell I would add since so many elves only tap for green mana this will help you get more black mana. Plus his +1 buffs an elf (not as good as if buffed 2 or 3 but hey it still ok) and gives deathtouch till the end of turn meaning it's always a viable attacker. like Xenagos, he has a 0 ability that make a token and they are of course elves and his ult gives you hasty elves!!! (rare in non red) plus some draw power

Circle of Dreams Druid-Is Gaea's Cradle on legs

Harald Unites the Elves- Can help you cheat a elf or Tyvar into play, buffs all yours elves than can be a board wipe if attack with your massive army of elves

Priest of Titania- is Elvish Guidance on legs which itself is a Elf version of Gaea's Cradle as Kret pointed out

Other game enders are your standard Overrun, Overwhelming Stampede, Triumph of the Hordes and Craterhoof Behemoth

Thank you for your input Triton, although I think, after your suggestion, that Whiptongue Hydra might be a better cut for Mana Reflection since Gargos, Vicious Watcher does offer pumping and situational removal.

I do play Torment of Hailfire and Exsanguinate, witch are, in my humble opinion, fun to play. To each their own :)

I would cut Elvish Mystic and add Sol Ring

For Removal maybe Desert Twister, Scour from Existence, and on theme Whiptongue Hydra
