Chromatic Sphere seems like a wasted card space tbh. You don't need the color fixing, and the cantrip is mediocre here. It's really only necessary when playing 2+ colors with Tron lands.

Managorger Hydra , and Kalonian Hydra come to mind.

the tron lands are not a good fit here. they stop you from playing most of your colored spells. tron decks work because they max out on Sylvan Scrying , Expedition Map , Chromatic Star , Chromatic Sphere , and Ancient Stirrings to ensure the lands all get into play by turn 3 or 4, then they drop colorless threats.

your Part the Waterveil for example becomes a turn 5 play at best with the tron lands. thats only 1 turn sooner than if you didnt attempt to mana ramp at all. tron has a really hard time generating multiple sources of colored mana in a single turn. trying to ramp into big multicolored spells means you're usually lookin at a turn 5 play.

anything that 'stores a draw' seems like a good inclusion. The Mind Stone and Commander's Sphere life sounds gud, but maybe even Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star might be worth your time to get your hand artificially empty quickly, and be able to sippy cup your cards back to hand at your leisure. Those might be extreme examples, but certainly anything with utility like Cranial Archive or Relic of Progenitus seems aces. Hedron Archive , Magnifying Glass , Pyrite Spellbomb , Scrabbling Claws , Silent Gravestone are a few other reasonable effects in that style.

oh almost forgot, Eldrazi Tron is actually a decently popular deck in Modern already.

the thing that makes tron, "tron", is the lands. Urza's Power Plant , Urza's Tower , Urza's Mine . this can give you 7 colorless mana on turn 3. the lands themselves, as well as the primary ways of searching for them ( Chromatic Star , Chromatic Sphere , Ancient Stirrings , Sylvan Scrying , and Expedition Map ) are all super cheap. eldrazi tron (also known as E-tron) is just one variation of tron, but the beauty of tron decks is that the core of it is really easy on the wallet, and you can fill out the rest with whatever big colorless threats you want, or even a few colored threats since theres still room in the manabase for color producing lands, and the "chromatic" cards add colored mana.

I'd definitely run Darksteel Citadel for sure. I would also cut the interactive cards like Pacifism , Path to Exile , Leonin Abunas and Lightning Bolt for more artifacts to sac to kci, specifically ones that can draw cards like Chromatic Star , Chromatic Sphere , Terrarion , and Mind Stone . They are good things to sac to kci because they keep drawing through the deck. I've also seen lists that run Pia's Revolution which was pretty powerful.

Obviously you’ll have to change the flavor but green is really nice for this deck. As far as lands are concerned, since you don’t have room for Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star like a normal tron deck, I would add 4 forests instead of the normal 1. I would remove buried ruin, ghost quarter, and inventors fair. In place of ghost quarter I would add two Field of Ruin. That way you can still wreck their lands but also grab a forest. That leaves you with, in my opinion, 20 solid lands. You don’t really lose much utility because you have other cards that do the same things. I would still pull the incubator plus the last land spot for 2 mines. Since you have galvanizer you can pull all the matrix. I would pull the perilous and servitors. That gives you room for my beloved lodestone as well as ancient stirrings and sylvan scrying. I want this deck now.

Any reason there's no Ancient Stirrings or more cantrips like the full Chromatic Star set or Chromatic Spheres?

Again, fair, that is just the difference in our versions.

I also run Chromatic Spheres so I can consistently cast my Reshapes and one Whir of Invention.
