Deck Description

Primordial Hydra is begging to be used with proliferate. Control the field until you get a Hydra out, then proliferate its initial counters in order to get an insane trampler even faster.

Counters and Spellskite help you protect your Hydra and stop your opponent from gaining any board progression.

Phantasmal Image gives you some added utility, being able to copy Birds if you need more mana ramp, Thrummingbird for faster proliferate, another Spellskite to protect your Hydra, or another Hydra for even more fatty craziness.

Brutalizer Exarch helps you tutor for a hydra in case you're having no luck on the draw.

Sideboard deals with all kinds of situational peskiness.

Deck discussion for Proliferating Primordial Hydra

i know fuel for the cause is expensive to cast but it does have a proliferate trigger

I considered it, but in my past attempts at proliferate decks it's mana cost was always too steep to be effective. Still, with the added green ramp, it might be viable. Something to consider once I actually get to testing the deck out.

Huh, look at my deck, it's mechanics are little similar. After I created mine, I looked up in google if there are any similar, and see what i found! Maybe we will inspire one another. ( I made my deck without looking at yours. And see, choices are pretty same!
