Steady Progress Discussion

When I saw this deck I was pretty intrigued, especially since I love big blue creatures ( Stormtide Leviathan was my first rare from 2013 core set back when I joined). I was inspired to quickly come up with my own version: Ula's Temple. One recommendation I have is Dizzy Spell ; it acts as an additional copy of quest for ula's temple, plus it can also find clockspinning and shrink a creature in a pinch. I tried to use creatures like Judge's Familiar as disruption instead of instants to help my chances with Ula's temple; plus, without the need to leave mana open, it makes more sense to run Contentious Plan instead of Steady Progress . Grozoth will let you tutor for multiple inkwell leviathans, which would be pretty devastating. Also, Street Wraith would up your creature count and thin out your deck.

My environment will mostly consist of tons of various aggro/tempo Tribal decks like Elves/Treefolk/Ninjas/Spirits/Faeries and Naya Small Zoo and Bant Blink/Wish Control centered around Venser, the Sojourner / Glittering Wish hence why I was pretty focused on Torpor Orb but I think graveyard hate/permanent removal should be able to stop Time Warp / Eternal Witness shenanigans.)... other things pop up here and there but those are the most common decks I'll be facing.

I was hoping proliferate would help me "speed up" kiora but I agree 9/10 I found myself wishing Steady Progress was just a Fog ... Currently I'm trying out Gigadrowse and so far it seems to be pretty effective; make me wanna also try Sleep / Downpour .

A full playset of Kiora seems pretty necessary to me so far in playtesting... im able to easily stall out a game to T12 but even then i've had plenty of cases of not drawing a single kiora just run out of Fogs by the time I do get one....otherwise at least a means to Tutor her... Thats why i was experimenting with Silent Arbiter but he is just too high CMC/hard to protect... Tamiyo, the Moon Sage might be really good in here as being a possible "target fog" or maybe even a one-sided mass draw... I have 2x copies of her so its a possibility; but might cost too much CMC?

definitely agree that Kiora, the Crashing Wave is a bit of a challenge to reach as a wincon but I really wanna feel rewarded when I get wins...she's a pet card of mine/my fiance and a steady stream of 9/9 Krakens is just too funny. (basically because of opponents using shock lands I just need to get 2 that can attack and then Whelming Wave / Gigadrowse G.G.)

  • So I dont know what you are playing against, but zoo isnt something thats very "meta" but if that your play group then build to it. The main probelm with your deck is the build.
  • For fog effects you have: a total of 8. One of which is CMC 3+ you should run more. Turbo Karn This is my (very memey) version of Turbo fog. Which is running effectively 12 fogs. Which are a lower CMC as well.
  • Proliferate isn't that amazing in your deck you need to stall to get your 4 of planeswalker (which might be to many). Also getting to that win condition is fairly difficult. A great turbofog deck can stall forever and seal up a game.
  • I will say for deck building a CMC 4 means you win the game basically. CMC 5 is basically unheard of. Silent Arbiter is CMC 4 but doesnt exactly win you the game I would remove it. Same with Steady Progress Gilder Bairn Karn's Bastion Doubling Season and Tezzeret's Gambit
  • If you are going to have creatures you want cards like Wall of Blossoms Drawing cards means you have more fogs, can play lands on time, and you are digging for your win condition.
  • Remand stalls out a spell for a turn, and the if you cant answer it gets cast, and doesnt solve the problem. There aren't many decks i recommend this card in, let alone 4 of. There are better counterspells at the same budget.

bushido_man96, I did have both Steady Progress and Tezzeret's Gambit in this deck, but I replaced them with repeatable sources of proliferate, and this deck does still have both Fathom Mage and Temple Bell , which are only two cards, but I cannot afford to remove any cards that contribute to the central theme of this deck.

Also, do you believe that I can afford to replace Abzan Falconer with Merfolk Skydiver ? I already removed Abzan Battle Priest in favor of Crystalline Crawler , so I supposed that I could do the same for the falconer; Herald of Secret Streams and Mer-Ek Nightblade , however, are too good to remove, so I am keeping them in this deck.

Swap Steady Progress for Contentious Plan . Same thing for 1 mana less

Hi, I was interested in building a deck with the exact same tactic and I would recommend using some bounce mechanics on Venerated Teacher to speed up the leveling process. This could be done with cards like Ephemerate or Kor Skyfisher . It might also be beneficial to use Contentious Plan instead of Steady Progress because it has a lower CMC, the only downside being it is a sorcery.
