I really like the idea. I would cut Explore for Sylvan Scrying and add four Chromatic Star . If it were me I would also want to run more than two Tooth and Nail to get the game winning combo more often, but that’s just personal preference. Thanks for sharing this.

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?

Nihil Spellbomb for graveyard hate, and Chromatic Star for more free eggs maybe?

To add to what you have said already DemonDragonJ, I think all the mythics they chose were good choices (although Balefire Dragon should have got reprinted imo instead in iconic masters or somewhere else. Wish there was a Mox Opal reprint though, and because there's not any affinity related reprints I have changed my mind on pursuing to build that deck. I got the Inkmoth Nexuss' and so i'm going to use those for my original plan of infect in modern.

Hopes that I still had were for Oracle of Mul Daya, Surgical Extraction, maybe some of or all of the leyline cycle, and then a few more tron related things I had hoped to see were Chromatic Star / Chromatic Sphere (one is simply pricey while the other I just wanted to see new art for as I don't like the old ones). But yeah I agree Filth would have been a better choice for a reprint. One of the things I would have liked to see most was a new art set of the urza lands so I can replace my mismatched art playsets lol. They would have made for a good uncommon reprint I think, and while it would have took up 3 of the set's uncommons you could simply cut out Rogue's Passage, and the like. City of Brass and or Reflecting Pool would have been good choices here, and maybe Vesuva over Thespian's Stage. This would have been a good opportunity to reprint Cabal Coffers I think too especially with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth being already present.

I'm however happy for the reprint of Karn Liberated, a noble hierarch reprint, Demonic Tutor (they should have done a tutor cycle though with idyllic tutor for white, worldly tutor for green, and personal tutor for blue). Dark Depths, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Phyrexian Tower, Phyrexian Altar, Entomb, Reanimate, among others were all cards that I still had been needing for a meren deck. The eldrazi titans I had been wanting to get a copy of each for decks as well.

Altogether though I think the set is certainly fine, they have certainly done better than iconic and m25, and have reprinted a lot of relevant cards that badly needed reprints like Celestial Colonnade, again Snapcaster Mage, Liliana of the Veil, Tarmogoyf etc. The reprints of Back to Basics, Temporal Manipulation, Phyrexian Altar, Phyrexian Tower were needed and hopefully there will be one for others like Ravages of War eventually too. I'm not one too complain too much tbh, and i'm mostly satisfied with this set as i'm sure some of the things that I still hoped for will get their chance at reprints sooner or later.

Thanks a lot for your response. I thought (hoped) this was how I could make my play. I really like this synergie, it shows once more the power of Chromatic Star is not to be taken lightly
