Vinelasher Kudzu Discussion
2 days ago
Mostly cut some pretty uninspiring and underwhelming cards.
Kor Skyfisher/ Emancipation Angel: Having 5 of the same effects was too much. Dead draw with any of the others. Whitemane Lion, Stonecloaker, Fleetfoot Panther also do the same but they have Flash and I may end up cutting another one (the others couldn't bounce potential removal targets).
Added some big beats and little dorks and a little non-creature ramp.
Armada Wurm: 2 5/5 tramples for 6 is value.
Novablast Wurm: Clears the board but allows for Karametra to stick around. Will have to see how it plays with others.
Silvos, Rogue Elemental: A regenerating fatty with trample. Sort of a theme going on here.
Weatherseed Treefolk: There's something nice about a creature that has a decent body, 5/3 with trample that I could care less if it dies since I get it back. Means more land drops via Karametra and is a decent attacker.
Gaea's Herald: A little bit of creature protection never hurt.
Possible Chopping Block
These are cards that work well with the theme but maybe aren't the greatest.
Sporemound: A Landfall fungus that makes 1/1 tokens for 5 CMC. Not bad, not the greatest. Sort of a pet card that I always wanted to work (Totally want to make a Thallid deck for giggles).
Fleetfoot Panther: Currently have 2 other cards that do the same but the other two are cheaper, or also have another added effect.
Oran-Rief Hydra: Pretty decent, 5/5 trample for 6 CMC. However it has to grow a bit before it really dominates. I still have high hopes for this one though.

That sounds good. Suppose late game the dorks can fill 2 roles. What fatties would you recommend? Worldspine Wurm, Armada Wurm, Novablast Wurm, Panglacial Wurm since Kara fetches lands? Cut out Lifetap, Grazing Gladehart, Vinelasher Kudzu, Undergrowth Champion the latter two are not immediate threats and have grow aka easily removable.

I'll bet you do mainly want this to be focused around your commander and having all that mana floating around, but Howl of the Night Pack is perfectly suited to your deck.
See also these other handy land-centric cards that (I think) will not break your budget:
Seer's Sundial (note that this is not that great unless you already have a lot of mana)

Hi, firstly, sorry for your friend's loss.
I have been brewing a Tiny Leader deck with Vorel, built around the theme of +1/+1 counters, so I have some suggestions in CMC < 4.
I understand some of them might be off-budget or even not modern-legal, I apologize if some of those slip in here, but just in case it helps, here are my suggestions, on top of past readers', which I endorse, especially Renegade Krasis, Cloudfin Raptor, Bioshift, and the blue-color pie enhancing suggestions (Pongify et al, and countermagic and tempo):

Needs more and better creatures:
Servant of the Scale, Simic Initiate, Avatar of the Resolute, Hangarback Walker, Hada Freeblade, Kazandu Blademaster, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Champion of the Parish, Managorger Hydra, Slitherhead, Vinelasher Kudzu.
Utility spells: (Some of these would go in the Sideboard)

Thanks for all the advice guys! I agree that the Vinelasher Kudzu and Ordeal of Nylea aren't great, moreover Mistcutter Hydra doesn't work with Bioshift. I think Servant of the Scale would be a better replacement for Mistcutter Hydra than Avatar of the Resolute. I will try to fit in a couple Harmonize in stead of the ordeal, and Tuskguard Captain for vinelasher. Naturalize, Despise and Savage Summoning will be good for sideboard. I'll test Doom Blade and Rancor out as well, but for now I'll leave them out.

Nice. +1. I really like the idea of ramping into the bigger creatures. However, I must urge you to cut back to 60 spells. I suggest cutting Ordeal of Nylea, Vinelasher Kudzu and your mana-base. Since you've got a pretty robust ramp, you can probably get by with 20-22 lands, especially if you drop the landfall effects.
Some other creatures to consider:
Avatar of the Resolute - potential finisher for only GG. It's so powerful, waiting to get 2x forest to cast it can be a good thing.
Tuskguard Captain - good synergy, gives out a lot of trample.
