The best thing about this card is it can be a variable 1/1 all the way up to as many land as you can pay for counters in your deck. The bad thing about it.. the supposed prevent damage doesn't prevent very much actually, if the damage is anything over the amount of the hydras toughness or equal to it, it still dies. The only advantage is that it may slowly gain strength via you play firespouts or something when it has 4/4 or volcanic fallout if it has 3/3 already, making it grow a few counters a turn. Phytohydra is technically the all out better card, but appropriately costs 5 in g/w colored mana instead of 1g and x. Oh and yes there was a hydra in both the hercules movie and myth, and both had an ability to regrow 2 heads in place of every one that was cut off.

Cool card. Phytohydra is a little better.

Doubling Season would do this card well.

You could also give it a permanent toughness-boosting effect like Gaea's Anthem, then Pariah becomes a godly enchantment to have on this card. Any damage you would take only makes it stronger, with the added bonus of you being immune to damage.

This, plus leech bonder with any aura that lets it tap is amazing.

@True_Murmin: I've done that some times. It looks like this:

Me: Protean Hydra, as a 6/6 (I usualy got a lot of mana in this deck)
Opponent: Better gonna get rid of that...
Me: Behemoth Sledge
Opponent: O.o
Me: Attack
Them: Gotta block it to survive
Me: Doubling Season
Them: Trampling 26/26? I scoop.
Me: *Inset evil laugh*
