Travelers’ tales claim that hydras bite off their own heads to make themselves deadlier.



  • if you only had trample

    • Ben Ehren

      did someone say nylea!

  • timntantaturnin

    chameleon colossus was powerful enough this is almost strictly better (not against black decks but still).

    • DJ Pad

      This costs one extra mana?

  • Fbn Dnl Schlr

    Another set, another stupid rare hydra with +1/+1 counters. You know what, Wizards? It’s getting old.

    • renfield286

      It is a Grecian myth themed block, Hydra are fitting the mythos.

    • BimBamBom

      There are still relatively few hydras when you compare them with humans or elves or spirits or vampires or zombies. What are you even complaining about?

  • My bug EDH is gonna love this little toy.

  • Joshua McTiernan

    limited is gonna be sweet!! And is anyone else thinking of some Corpsejack Menace shenanigans, cause i am………

    • Adam Watson

      I was thinking the same thing with corpsejack, maybe in a fun little fnm deck.

  • dinner

    WAY better than kalonion hydra, this will definetly find a place in GR monsters

    • Erik

      Don’t feed the troll.

  • Roi Jaune

    Yes…. another hydra…. yes….trying to contain my exitement…. its easier than you would think…

  • Chi Sarades

    soooooooo sexy just like primordial hydra but a little slower

    • Kevin Shugg

      No trample though. Still, in limited (which it was clearly designed for), this will be pretty decent and a good reason to choose green at the pre-release

  • Satan

    this guy seems like he could be broken in limited. a 4/4 for 5 is okay but if you drop on turn five, next turn you have an 8/8 on turn 6 and if you can ramp up, you could have an 8/8 on turn 5 or even turn 4. and while he doesn’t have trample there are ways of giving him trample. if you can get him and nylea out at the same time than you basically win the game. the only color that can deal with that big a dude easily is black.

  • Fin

    Artwork is sexy

  • anonon

    I’m in a bit of a pickle. I’m working at a deck centered around Kruphix, and what he does with mana. It’s not RUG monsters, since half of the cards that would be more monsters are X cards that deal direct damage. I have polukranos, miscutter is sideboarded, and it’s currently between Heroes’ Bane, and Hydra Broodmaster for my secondary hydra.

  • DA

    Casual Tip! Use Disorient to almost kill it…

  • ok my buddy played this creature, and then tried putting a until end of turn +2/+2 and then using the creatures ability to make it perm 12/12 does this creature work like this?? or would the extra +4/+4 come back off making it an 8/8 at end of turn?

    • anyone know the answer?

      • BimBamBom

        It’s power doubles based on its current state. So a 4/4 would be a 6/6 after the casting the buff spell on it, then use the ability to add +6/+6. The +2/+2 wears off at the end of the turn, so it would effectively become a 10/10 creature at the end of turn.

  • Wyatt

    Do the counter stay on it perminly
