The crux of this deck is getting the mana out there and using it all.

The combination of Illusionist's Bracers + Kiora's Follower can act as an infinite mana source when paired up with a second Follower. The process being tapping the Ill+Follower to untap a land and other follower, tapping the now untapped follower to untap the Ill+Kiora's. Repeat as mana is needed.

This mana can then be dumped into either the Helix Pinnacle (on your opponents turn for added insult to injury) or onto one of the Hydra options, either dealing infinite damage onto creatures of your choice with Polukranos, World Eater or summoning INF, INF/INF Hydras into the battlefield with Hydra Broodmaster

The Karametra's Acolyte could seem unnecessary with the "focus" of the deck being tapping and untapping, but when you can't quite get the cards together it can really help in just getting the Hydras to do something as I draw and wait for something else.

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard was actually the progenitor of this deck. Upon getting it from a booster pack, I started to see the raw potential. Then I gathered up a few cards of different costs such as the Hydras and Karametra's. I came across Kiora's Follower and that completely changed the game. Since then I have picked up other synergistic cards that bring out the baddies and make 'em swole.

There is some fat in the deck that I am sure could be trimmed for better cards, but this is the first deck I have made that has really come together into something that I feel is pretty original, as well as quite effective. If you have any tips as to cards that would be synergistic, or just comments on how it has been put together, just leave a comment, it's always appreciated.
