Thirdtrader Thanks for the suggestions! Ilysian Caryatid is a great include; totally missed that. I'm not 100% the list needs another infinite mana win combo, but I do like Walking Ballista for flexibility, so I'll try it out!

Hey Profet93, I see you also have a Multani deck. Nice! I have a few tips for you to consider:

Cheers!

I think the weakest links in this deck right now are the mana dorks, Ilysian Caryatid and Leafkin Druid. Since you're not worried about ramping to a specific cost as much as just getting as much mana as possible to sink into x-costs, you'd be better off with something that can produce more than 2. Gyre Sage and Incubation Druid are the first that come to mind as they fit with a +1/+1 theme and can synergize with cards like Hardened Scales and Doubling Season. There's also dorks in the vein of Magus of the Candelabra and Voyaging Satyr. They go well with Castle Garenbrig and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, not to mention Wild Growth-type auras. My personal favorite option is a defender package with Overgrown Battlement and Axebane Guardian for the defensive utility and potential to generate ridiculous amounts of mana with stray Wall of Blossoms and Carven Caryatid, or even go infinite with an Umbral Mantle.

Freed from the Real can give unlimited mana when used with Bloom Tender, Faeburrow Elder, or potentially Ilysian Caryatid

Sanctum on Kiora's Uprising

Thanks for the feedback!

I've been using Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner for a while but with the release of Garruk's Uprising and Garruk's Harbinger, I saw some great synergy.

Track Down is a really great card as Scry is hard to come by in Green. Plus it has great synergy with Radha, Heart of Keld to place land into a position to play from the top of your deck.

The ideal draw for this deck is a Temple of Abandon with a Ilysian Caryatid and Kiora on turn 3.

Most opponents will drop an attack on Kiora but she has 7 starting Loyalty, so you will still likely get some use out of her.

Turn 4, you should be able to drop a Strength 4 critter, which boosts the Caryatid to 2 mana. That Caryatid plus Kiora, gives you 4 mana. So with an ideal mana curve, you should have 8 mana on turn 4.

Track Down works very well to ensure your on target for your turn 4 uprising.

Klothys is just an excellent card in this deck: it strips out graveyard cards, gives a nice 2 life exchange and between Garruk's Harbinger, Proud Wildbonder and Quartzwood Crasher, you should have no problem ramping up devotion to Klothys, to get her active.

I'm proud of this deck because it's relatively competitive while being fun and bucking the trend.
