Kobolds of Kher Keep Discussion

To elaborate, the color of a spell is not the same thing as a card's color identity.
A spell's color is determined by the colored mana symbols (if any) in its casting cost, as well as any color-defining text in the rules text box such as Ghostfire or Abstruse Interference, and color indicators such as on Kobolds of Kher Keep and Pact of Negation (color indicators also show the color of permanents that don't have a casting cost that defines the color, such as the back side of double-faced cards).
A color identity, on the other hand, as Boza said, is specifically for Commander and is used only for deck construction and a select few cards that care about a commander's color identity such as Command Tower. It has no other MtG-related rules use at this time, and doesn't factor into cards that care about a spell's color.
Similarly to how Dutiful Thrull is a white card with a BW color identity, while Ramos, Dragon Engine has a 5-color identity, it won't trigger any colors-matter cards like Nightsky Mimic because it's actually colorless.

If you are looking for more costed spells to cast, its hard to leave out Ornithopter, Memnite, Shield Sphere, and Phyrexian Walker. And since you're in also, you have access to Kobolds: Crimson Kobolds, Kobolds of Kher Keep, and Crookshank Kobolds. I don't know if that helps or not, but it would be fun...

Not that I can find. Neither of his abilities are breakable with one or two cards. The best I can find is Cloudstone Curio along with Edgar Markov, Conspiracy, Kobolds of Kher Keep, and Crimson Kobolds, and that’s four cards, other than the commander

Especially now that a nice new token art has been printed.
In my decks, there's actually 2 Kobolds token options displayed as available in the drop down when play-testing the deck, and they both don't work.

As Boza said the emphasis is on mana symbols in casting cost and rules text, excluding reminder text. Naming other colors does not affect color identity. For example, you can run Deathmark in a mono-black deck even though it mentions White and Green, and you can also run Crypt Ghast even though the keyword ability Exploit includes in its description a .
But there is something else color identity checks: color indicators. This is a colored circle to the left of the type field in cards that have no mana cost and faces of cards that don't have mana costs, and was formally rules text that said "this card is [color]." This doesn't matter in cases like Pact of Negation because the rules text goes on to include mana symbols, but remains of some importance for cards like Kobolds of Kher Keep.

This would be an awesome deck to pull out on people, and land destruction decks wpuld cry.

Just some ideas:
Panharmonicon is a ton of fun in Purphoros decks.
Shifting Shadow has been amazing for me, but I run dragons as a sub theme in my list. It's slightly less good if you mainly run non-creatures, but can potentially deliver a shocking one-of, surprise Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre (or whatever you choose to run). Indestructible means Shifting Shadow moves on to find another creature but your indestructible creature remains.
I like running a few Wheel of Fortune effects in my list to refuel my hand.
Hangarback Walker and Walking Ballista work really well. Also, the free-drop creature cards like Ornithopter, Endless One, Crimson Kobolds, Crookshank Kobolds, Kobolds of Kher Keep, Memnite, Phyrexian Marauder, Phyrexian Walker, Shield Sphere, and Shifting Wall are good options if you have room for them and want to lower your curve.
