Holy guacamole I didn't realize Food Chain was up to 40 bucks now. Wowsa...

Since so many of your creatures are utility-based, how about an Asceticism?

Food Chain can lead to some interesting things...sac one creature to cast a blue/green creature - sac that one to get the next one - and so on until you've topped out at a high CMC creature.

Fantastic, I slotted it into my deck as a response to my buddy going infinite with Prossh and Food Chain. What do you think of Sunforger? I assume you'll always have a creature, and the potential value/toolbox aspect seems really powerful in your deck. I'm testing it with Render Silent, Return to Dust, and now Comeuppance

My Prossh deck has about a 75-80% win-rate, and I'm not even playing Food Chain at this point. My meta is about a 75% so it's strong but a bit battlecruiser-y at times. It's fun to play too, as things dying is a pretty broad concept to build your own character into. Obviously Food Chain takes him up a tier, but depending on the meta may not be necessary.

Ghave also seems like another deck that could be fun and powerful. For me, fun is a mix of winning and good back and forth, strategic game play. "Oops I tripped on this infinite combo" may not fit that for you, and there are no shortage of ways to do that in Ghave.

Just so you are aware, Prophet of Kruphix is banned. As for other blinky cards you could run things like Eerie Interlude, Ghostly Flicker, and Ghostway. And if you want to be that guy you could always run the Food Chain combo. It works better with Tazri than any other commander and is very powerful. Other recommendations would be Worldly Tutor, Wild Pair, Diabolic Tutor and Descendants' Path to help get stuff for free and get what you need.

Although I don't play against many tier 1 lists, here are my thoughts:

Food Chain prossh or tazri are good decks (currently run a prossh deck and am building a tazri).

Thrasios, Triton Hero with just about any other partner is powerful as he a card advantage/mana ramp engine.

Animar is a strong creature based commander. Never tried the deck but have played against multiple builds.

Ghave is one of my favorite. My current deck has more a counters matter theme, but he can be built very competitively.

Marath, meren, and mizzix are other commanders I run that can be highly competitive. Miz can be built relatively cheap.

My Atraxa deck is the deck my playgroup doesn't approve of as possible turn one locks are frowned on. But it is my most expensive deck.

I do like that Lightning Bolt can be your win condition. I also just ordered 4x Fire Covenant so I'm looking forward to using them once they arrive (though they're coming from the States so it will probably take a while).

Also, I did a thing:

It's basically a casual Food Chainless FCT deck.
