How does Illusionist's Bracers allow for infinite untaps with Kiora's Follower?

Illusionist's Bracers may be a good option for you. It's scope is more narrow than that of something like Parallel Lives, but could be just as effective with Rhys' second ability.

My broad reccomendations for the direction are to go with more of an artifact based playstyle incorperating ways to trigger Macar as many times per turn as you can while clearing the field. then use all your mana for a in shot kill on everyone. a few card reccomendations are as follows but its just what caught my eye Royal Assassin Skirsdag High Priest Scrap Trawler Avatar of Woe Sheoldred, Whispering One Karn, Silver Golem Tragic Slip Tendrils of Corruption In Garruk's Wake Jandor's Saddlebags Strionic Resonator Voltaic Key Icy Manipulator Glaring Spotlight Arcane Lighthouse Illusionist's Bracers Koskun Falls No Mercy Holdout Settlement Hero's Downfall Beacon of Unrest Night's Whisper Unwinding Clock Blinkmoth Urn Scythe of the Wretched Puppet Strings Paradise Mantle

TheCrimsonKing101 In order of a large impact to less of an impact I would say...

1.Purphoros, God of the Forge: This can just win games on its own, especially with an Impact Tremors on the field. ~$18

2.Rings of Brighthearth: Copies a LOT of the best activated abilities in the deck. Look at the spoiler under the "Hit Me Baby, One More Time" section of the main deck for a list. ~$33

3.Magus of the Moon/Blood Moon: Both would be good, but even the Magus is an improvement. About the only way we have of slowing the whole table down that doesn't get us immediately focused to death. ~$6/~$19

4.Shared Animosity: This really cuts down the number of attack phases you need to kill a whole table. $7

5.Disrupt Decorum/Mogg Infestation/Moggcatcher: All 3 of these provide a different benefit depending on your playstyle and meta. If you play against a lot of other creature based decks, Disrupt Decorum is great. If you play against a lot of token decks Mogg Infestation is bad to cast on anyone but yourself most of the time because you double the number of creatures they had. If there are fewer, bigger creatures it is fantastic because it doesn't target and gets rid of everything and leaves them with only a few Goblins. If you like to go for a certain line most games, or there are a lot of counterspells in your meta, Moggcatcher is great because the creature is put into play not cast, so only things like Disallow can prevent the tutored creature from entering.$5-$9 ea.

Crucible of Worlds (~$15) is in there somewhere around #4 or #5. In a deck that runs fetches, Strip Mine effects, or other utility lands that die, it would easily be #2, but that is a much more expensive deck. For this one you end up getting more lands back from Surveyor's Scope than you do a Crucible in most games. If your playgroup is more battlecruiser Magic that goes into the 10-20+ turn range, Crucible gets better because of the increased number of chances you have to use it.

To get the widest benefits out of $75 I think I would go..

Purphoros + Blood Moon + Magus of the Moon + Shared Animosity + Disrupt Decorum + Mogg Infestation + Moggcatcher

That would get you to roughly $72, and provide the largest range of improvements. I still think Rings is one of the strongest upgrades, but it at least has a backup effect already in the deck through Illusionist's Bracers.

Thanks for commenting!

@DrkNinja: Hey. It's been quite awhile. But I nevertheless have some new stuff I am currently trying to add a certain Rowan Kenrith in some way, or another. The following URL might help with the decision making...

If the answer is no, I do have a backup plan. I just wonder what permanents can also Copy Activated Abilites (Illusionist's Bracers doesn't count as it only applies to Creatures. I just want something else that can reach Loyalty abilities...) if Rowan (Just in case...) still gets the Red Light/Card.

Verdict? I'll scryfall for now...

Pemmin's Aura,Illusionist's Bracers, all help with more untap effects. Bracers go infinite with Aphetto Alchemist.

Life's Legacy is decent card draw if you don't mind loosing one of your dudes.

Avatar of the Resolute is a nice body that gets bigger from other creatures.

Managorger Hydra is a bomb if it gets some protection.

Lorescale Coatl/Chasm Skulker both scale with drawing.

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar can grow your entire field a bit, with Hardened Scales it combos nicely.

Deepglow Skate can double your fields worth of counters, this even works with planeswalkers. kinda spendy money wise though.

for protection: Heroic Intervention

Swiftfoot Boots/Lightning Greaves

Ditch Pongify for either an X Card Draw spell or Curse of the Swine. Ditch all the mana rocks. Add in Phyrexian Altar. Also Altar of Dementia + Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler = game.

Might look at Volrath's Stronghold for a land. Ever think of using Syphon Flesh. Ever think of putting in cards like Illusionist's Bracers or Rings of Brighthearth ? Think I like Rings better in this deck. Also since you have blue you could run Fabricate too (to get Altar). Something like Flesh-Eater Imp could also one shot someone /w ease - wouldn't even need RoofTop Storm (Imp, Equip Boots, sac some shit, swing dead (easier if you say have Warchief out).

Just some ideas.
