Guilt your opponents into supporting the fuzzy hydra family, even if it's not your hydra! Baby needs new....... heads.

@Lavrant You could dump all of your mana into him, then Backlash or Fate transfer or some shenanigans like that.

You might also want to pump him to bring him into reprisal range.

I cant think of anything better though. I guess i am just not Johnny enough.

Not a bad creature it itself, but it was completely smoked by the printing of Primordial Hydra. For just one extra {G} up front, you get trample and the counters automatically double each of your upkeeps with no further mana investment.

Still, this is fun in commander.

Really he's not a bad finisher, nor a bad early game guy. Miss your T2 drop? Drop him instead. Miss your T3 drop? May as well boost him!

Actually.. come to think of it; he's probably good in U/G control. U holds counterspells to eat the opponent's spells, then excess mana goes into this guy. Same with B/G control.

@Lavrant: Hitting him with Phthisis or Banewasp Affliction would be good.

Not bad in EDH

Heartstone? As much as I liked Ivy Elemental, I like this more. You can play it early and pump it later, and it's a wellspring of +1/+1 counters for the likes of Ghave, Guru of Spores.
