Kiora's Follower Discussion
14 hours ago
@DerGeldSchein Appreciate the feedback!
Yeah Prophet of Kruphix is the nuts, but I doubt my playgroup would be happy with the argument that "well its casual anyway so the banlist doesn't matter" :/ I could see running it if the rest of the decks at the table where significantly stronger than mine, but that is not the case for now. But yeah if I was running Prophet, Momir would be pretty strong for tutoring it out. My problem with Momir in the deck as it is right now, is that there is nothing particularly strong like a combo to tutor for, except Kiora's Follower + Murkfiend Liege, which is only great if you have Doubling Cube. And once the deck has gone off, he becomes kinda useless. That plus his susceptability to removal and 5cmc make me hesitate to add him to the deck.

Kiora's Follower may not seem like it but that card is actually a powerhouse. Especially since you can Birthing Pod a one drop dork into it and then combo off next turn by playing Thrasios, poding him into Trinket Mage fetching Lion's Eye Diamond and then untap pod with follower getting Auriok Salvagers and comboing out.
Not to mention he can untap Mana Vault and gets dumb with any 2+ mana producing cards.

So I took another look at your list and I don't think Kiora's Follower is really needed in your list. Also removal is never a bad thing to have.

Kiora's Follower actually is a decent idea since it untaps your commander for double the doubled counters. Along those lines, Thousand-Year Elixir, Aphetto Alchemist, and Fatestitcher could be pretty good for your commander and for ramp

i'm not looking to dominate the meta, but being able to survive the first hour in my FNM pods is a desirable outcome.
in defense of my undying love for the fish lady, i put the Kioras in with the idea of popping them either the turn i play them, or the turn after.
I see the value in ramp, and I've got my finger on the trigger to put more in, for sure! Kiora's Follower is fragile, in that it's not a land, but having an early creature on board does help against early tokens. I am on the fence about it though.
sadly, I don't have spare copies of the cards you suggested (but i'll get right on it), so i'm considering Sakura-Tribe Elder for the turn prior, or Explosive Vegetation for the turn after (netting me two lands on board instead of one), allowing me to use the 3 mana to cast Vorel if I so choose.
make any sense? I like discussion.

Okay I'm here! Sorry it took so long; my comment deleted somehow!
Here's a good list of resources I use if you're new to the format:
EDHREC.com look up your commander and get hundreds of the most popular cards for him!
MTG ASSIST.com look up cards and find similar ones!
The Command Zone #151 Deck template maybe watch this first; very helpful!
So You need a bunch of cuts, I'd start with looking at:
- Allosaurus Rider
- Caller of the Pack
- Garruk's Horde
- Hornet Queen
- Inkwell Leviathan
- Nezahal, Primal Tide
- Pelakka Wurm
- Ranging Raptors
- Ripjaw Raptor
- Scavenging Ooze
- Scute Mob
- Simic Sky Swallower
- Stormtide Leviathan
- Ulvenwald Hydra
- Hunt the Weak
- Primal Surge
- Hadana's Climb
- Sandwurm Convergence
- Venser's Journal
- Kiora, Master of the Depths
- Early Harvest
- Swell of Growth
Not saying throw them all at, but consider cutting and replacing :)
Now, I think Kruphix boils down to two things: Making mana, and using mana. With that in mind, here are some suggestions. Consider what your budget allows.
Making Mana: Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, Doubling Cube, Plasm Capture, Seedborn Muse, Kiora's Follower, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Deadeye Navigator(some infinite combos with this guy, ask if interested), Weaver of Currents, Everflowing Chalice, Frontier Siege etc.
Using mana: Stroke of Genius, Pull from Tomorrow, Curse of the Swine, Altered Ego, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Thrasios, Triton Hero, some Eldrazi beasties if you have the money, Genesis Wave, Braingeyser, Enter the Infinite, Gelatinous Genesis, Expropriate, Planar Bridge, Nissa, Steward of Elements, and finally, Helix Pinnacle as a fun win-condition.
That's my $0.02! Hope some if this helps!

I just finished slamming my Kess storm deck together with my Ramos jank-lifegain deck hoping to form a truly devestating storm/Spellslinger deck, but I need more "taps/untaps matters" cards to pair with things like Mana Flare, Weathered Wayfarer, Kiora's Follower, and Magus of the Candelabra, and more landfall compliments like Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Oracle of Mul Daya, etc in order to get ahead faster and reach enough Mana to really make Turnabout and frantic search hit hard. I plan on swapping a few of my instant and sorcery based copy spell effects with Pyromancer's Goggles and Swarm Intelligence for their much more consistent copy effects, as well as the goggle's synergy with Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter and Paradox Engine.
Once I have a list hammered out, I plan on posting it. I hope you take a peek when I do and maybe find some inspiration - much like I found some from your list!
