Hey lonesentinel, You have put together a very nice deck. I would have some recommendations that you might like.

Asceticism is a realy good protection and works very well.

Staff of Domination a another combo-piece, for Prist of Titania or Elvish Archdruid, Marwyn… as infinitely mana, or/and infinitely darw to Psychosis Crawler

Argothian Elder , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Elvish Guidance , Gaea's Cradle for a heavy mana

Natural Order , Chord of Calling , Summoner's Pact , Crop Rotation , Survival of the Fittest as tutor for combo creatures or lands

If your goal is to collect different combo pieces to reach your line, I would cut Great Oak Guardian and Grothama, All-Devouring out, because they do less for the goal or only once on ETB.

I am available for any questions,

best regards

why not use Chord of Calling for your signature spell?

HalbrechtHalbrecht on Kenrith +1/+1 Counters/Life

Hey, thanks for the +1 on my deck! I +1'ed you back. :)

A couple thoughts: First, I suggest that you more clearly define what you mean by budget, as it's different for everyone. Some people mean no one card being over a dollar, some mean nothing over $10, while others are fine buying one $50 card as long as the total budget for the deck isn't more than $100, etc.

On that note, you currently have 3 creatures — Abzan Falconer , Sapphire Drake , and Skatewing Spy — that grant flying. Since this buff doesn't stack, it would feel bad to draw more than one at a time. Instead, I'd recommend keeping just one of them (probably the Falconer, as he's the most cost-efficient) and replacing the other two with creature tutors, such as Green Sun's Zenith and Chord of Calling . I consider both of those budget, at about $5 to $7 each (T/O pricing puts them higher than that, but they can be found on TCGPlayer for that price). These essentially become copies 2 and 3 of ALL your creatures, so you can go grab whatever team-wide buff is most relevant at the time — ramp from Rishkar, trample from Zegana, etc.

I really like this deck, I've been thinking that Kydele has cEDH potential for a while. I have some suggestions to maybe help this deck be a little more competitive:

ironballsmcgee thanks for your interest and feedback, your comment definitely steered me in the right direction. I was considering Collected Company previously, but didn't want to forsake cards like Sliver Hivelord just to keep the CMC low enough to use CoCo. But I looked at how the Counters Company decks in modern build their decks because they run both CoCo and Chord of Calling , which was how ended up with the list I have now, and it's running a lot smoother. Let me know what you think of the updated version and if you have any more ideas for where I should go from here!

Shyachi33 on Korvold Food Chain

Why run Green Sun's Zenith instead of Natural Order ? There's isn't a whole lot to fetch with GSZ in your deck, specially with a lack of a Dryad Arbor , the only real green creature worth grabbing is temur Sabertooth or protean hulk, which I also assume you go get temur and dockside with. In which case natural order is still cheaper to get them directly on the field. Even then Chord of Calling might even be more justifiable to run since it's not color restricted like GSZ and natural order.

If your reasoning for gsz is the 1cmc for ad nauseum then running mikaeus or even protean hulk seem like really unnecessary risks for the deck. If you Want a lower CMC creature based wincon to win with food chains, I recommend Sparkcaster since it can win by itself with infinite mana, similarly to walking ballista. Also it's higher CMC, but puphoros is a creature unlike impact tremors, so you can win with creature Mana there too, also puphoros is harder to remove.

And lastly, what's the reasoning for running gutteral response instead of red elemental blast? Other than hybrid Mana,REB catches more things in general than GR.

Thanks so much for taking a look, Orangepanda01. I'm thinking I should try to replace as many instants as I can with creatures to help convoke my signature spell. I'm also very on the fence about March of the Multitudes vs Chord of Calling in the signature slot. Any thoughts on one vs the other?
