Deck Description

A fairly budget Green/Blue deck made to overwhelm your opponent with Kalonian Hydra.

How to Play

The general purpose of this deck is to get out Kalonian Hydra, make sure you have +1/+1 counters on all of your creatures, then cast Mirrorweave and make all of your creatures into Kalonian Hydra for a turn, then charge your opponent. Make sure you use either Nissa, or Durable Handicraft to put at least one +1/+1 counter on all of your creatures, because the moment you target your hydra with Mirrorweave, anything without a buff on it will die due to the hydra's 0 toughness; of course this applies to your opponent as well.

~ I am definitely welcoming any constructive criticism to the deck, if you have any ideas for it please let me know!

Deck discussion for Kalonian Hydra Overwhelm

If you're going to rely on a 4 and 5 drop in a combo you'll need lots of creatures that help stall by doing things like having a ton of toughness, being indestructible, and probably gaining you life. You'll also want some more in the way of tutoring rather than just draw, as getting 1 each of two sets of 4 is rare. Even very tough creatures that draw or loot for you might work.

Thanks! That was my idea at least with predator ooze, and a bunch of 1 drop basic mana dorks, but I wasn't really sure what else to put in to stall while keeping my own acceleration. Also what would you suggest for tutoring?

Also side note, the mirroweave can also be effective when used on cold-eyed selkie if they control an island, since I intend to be throwing +1/+1 when I can, but should I try to put something in there to force an island on them? Or would that be more of a sideboard idea?

Spreading Seas is a pretty good way to force an island on someone and at least isn't ever complete dead weight.

Hmm that looks good but I'm not sure what I should replace or lower for them

Maybe 1 or 2 of your Divination, you don't need more than 1 to come out, but they smooth your curve and do two things.
