Leyline of vitality is going to make this card awesome.

It's an easy way to make all your hydras indestructible and they can start out on the battlefield before the game even starts!

Not to mention Leyline of vitality seems to be the only leyline that stacks, packing a playset of them isn't as detrimental as the others.

The lack of creativity is underwhelming. And just so you know, giving him Whispersilk Cloak does not make him epic; it takes away everything that makes him special. Lightning Greaves will work for Shroud, if that's what you want, but you WANT to have him blocked.

Deathtouch? Who cares. Sword of Kaldra? No matter. Phage? A weakling. All you need is Gift of the Deity, and you've got it in the bag. Gilder Bairn works well, too.

if protean hydra is put into you graveyard by say...a destroy target non black, then when you bring it out of your gy does it still have the counters on it?

I love this card. I have a GB deck that I use in casual play and he gets amazingly powerful in the later game if not taken care of, especially with a combo that I am quite fond of. Give him some sort of + to toughness (I use Moldervine Cloak to take advantage of the Dedge, but countless cards would work), and use Fate Transfer and you get to buff up any creature you have on the battlefield, plus the Hydra is doubling in strength every time you do it. Needless to say, he has gotten ridiculus in some of the longer games I play.

me and my friend are haveing an argument on the ruling of this card so i need someone who can tell me for sure, due to the wording on the card is it immune to death touch, lifelink, poison counters, and any other form of damage depandent abilitys? also just to clear this up he told me that a new ruling was put on this card saying that if more damage is dealt to it then it has +1/+1 counters that the damage caries over to any other form of toughness it has, if so why is it not posted

This is one of your prime goals for Green. If you can pump this guy out with enough counters, you can steamroll everything.

just make sure you don't let him die, to like Doom blade.

Four years on, looks like Lege was wrong...

I just got a foil version of this card for 2.5$... It's the definition of mythic jank. :(

This is the quintessential Hydra card to me. It has the closest ability to the Hydra of legend, flavor-wise.
