vicledezma on Starfield of Kestia

@OrgasmAndTea: Thanks for the feedback! I do have a Starfield of Nyx but decided not to use it because it makes me much more susceptible to boardwipes. Besides, I feel like Kestia's and the rest of the deck's card advantage allows me to keep playing different enchantments rather than try to reanimate destroyed ones. The combo you mention looks sweet, but I don't have any other life-gain engines, so I'm worried that Sunbond would turn into dead weight under many scenarios. I had thought about Horizon Chimera and I might try to find a spot to put it in.

Love it. I've always wanted to play bant colours in commander, to run the Sunbond + Fathom Mage + Horizon Chimera combo. Not sure if it fits here though. Try Starfield of Nyx. I was surprised it wasn't here already, since it's in the deck title ;)

Great take on the Sun of a Lich deck!

For consistency, I'd consider running maybe a third Approach.

If you wanted something spicy, Horizon Chimera gives an infinite loop with Lich's Mastery, but it would result in you changing the deck around.

Maybe Alhammarret's Archive over Karn? He seems kind of random in here. Maybe look into some lifelinkers as well? Maybe Orazca Relic for some card draw and life gain? Cliffhaven Vampire seems pretty cool too.

Rating 2: Drogskol Reaver and Horizon Chimera. Mandatory draw-your-whole-damn-deck. Not sure if it counts since it's a lose condition, but it's a wonderful shenanigan with Laboratory Maniac.

Looking at your list, you have too many disjointed combos that don't bring enough to the table by themselves. For example, you have the Mike+Trike combo which you can assemble from TaN, however at this point you could just as easily assemble your infintie mana Palinchron combo. You have Lich's Mastery + Horizon Chimera which works with Labman, but almost no other actual draw card effects in the deck that let you capitalise on it. And then you have Duskmantle + Mindcrank combo which is anther infinite mana outlet however mindcrank serves little purpose outside of the combo other than to paint a target on you.

you also have very few lands for such a high average CMC and especailly for a deck that does run the Palinchron combo.

So a few suggestions - cards like Kruphix, God of Horizons don't really add much value here, neither does Clever Impersonator or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. They are just expensive and slow. Market Festival should be land fetching based ramp like Farseek or Nature's Lore - it helps with the the palinchron combo and it's much cheaper to cast. you don't want to spen 4 mana on a ramp spell unless it gives you that much value (think Skyshroud Claim).

Villainous Wealth is bad - outside of combo it's underwhelming and inside of combo Blue Sun's Zenith achieves the same thing but adds more value elsewhere.

Muldrotha, the Gravetide is great as commander, but in the 99 and especially in this list it feels out of place. You have barely any fetch lands and as recursion a Seasons Past would do much more work.
