I'll go in order so we keep our thoughts straight haha.

Re: Kiora's Follower - We don't play this one since it's a 2 mana dork which does not hit Scepter threshold by itself. Priest and Tendies do. That's our reasoning.

Re: High Tide/Freed from the Real - We cut HT for the all-in tutor package, since the extra mana didn't outweigh having more raw dig power. For FrtR, we only pick roughly 2 combos and execute those as well as we can. Our choices were Scepter and the Grace/Naus win. FftR is a little bit more mana intensive for needing the right cards to go off, while Scepter just sorta asks for some non-land mana sources. I do agree that HT is a good card, though. Very much so. But it didn't have the punch that it does in storm or Doomsday. We sliced it and didn't miss it.

Re: Birthing Pod - Great card, but not for us. It's a card which finds its home in slower more stax/bears decks. By the time we play Pod and use it, we want to ideally be using the 4 mana to win. It also asks for a lot more cards which will end up hurting the theme of limiting dead cards to a minimum.

Re: Ad Nauseam - Often without. A common line is cast Ad Nauseam, dig, find Angel's Grace, get back Ad Nauseam in some way, and win immediately. Or just find the Scepter combo in the cards you drew. Both are good. It's also a plus that it can also be a - win the game instantly. It's an enormously powerful combo that is often how Esper (read Zur haha) decks win. Hilariously Doomsday in the Zur DD deck isn't really a priority.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions and suggestions about why we built the list the way we did. Thanks for checking it out.

It is possible, though a little weaker. The piles you want to look into are piles which use Predict and Unearth as the way to use Laboratory Maniac to win.

I agree, sadly LED has just become a very hard to obtain card, and unfortunately is one of the key pieces which makes Doomsday competitive thanks to the ability to produce 3 mana of any color. However, it's very doable to play without, and generally you lean on Unearth. This also helps trim Yawgmoth's Will, and while neither should be cut, both are sadly expensive, and this is I think the best alternative.
