Ilysian Caryatid Discussion

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:
- There are some additional cards now that let you draw cards equal to the highest power among creatures you control: Grothama, All-Devouring and Return of the Wildspeaker. Garruk's Uprising is also a great new draw option. Consider cutting Momentous Fall and Lifecrafter's Bestiary
- With drawing so many cards, I found running a few cheap land tutors to get Reliquary Tower has a lot of merit: Sylvan Scrying and Crop Rotation
- I’m confused by Rogue's Passage. Can’t use that on Multani :).
- Castle Garenbrig gets you Multani out a turn early while the opportunity cost is basically 0
- I’m excited for Inscription of Abundance from the new set
- On a more general note, I think you can work on your mana curve: cutting some 3-drops for 2-drops for example. I recently added Ilysian Caryatid and Whisperer of the Wilds as relevant 2-drop options. Crashing Drawbridge is also really nice.

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.

Thanks for the feedback!
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.

Bloom Tender/Incubation Druid/Ilysian Caryatid/Gyre Engineer all make infinite mana with Vigean Graftmage+Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy I would also run Cryptolith Rite since any creature can make infinite mana with Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy+Pemmin's Aura or Freed from the Real
