Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix Discussion

king_of_angels_and_demons on Temor Wheel Deck

2 days ago

I'd drop the small draw and get bigger draws and wheelsDrop the small creatures and make Get X spells your not making real use of Kydele, Chosen of Kruphixshe is strong If you want to go infinite Umbral Mantle infinite mana if you draw 4 cards But if you don't like that idea just more wheels and Cards like Master Biomancer, Trygon Predator and Baral, Chief of Compliance do in the deck, Baral, loots but what does that do 1 card draw when you counter something but that doesn't put you ahead in less your using him as ramp but that is not reliable your running too few Sorceries and Instant for him to be good, I hope this gives you an idea of how I'd change the deck, But I have a bias I don't like the attack step so do take what I say with some understanding of my bias

Phaetion on The Final 5 Partners

I love the Partner Mechanic from last year. I have all 105 combinations built (Half-decks are a genius idea!), but now I want to go further. I was annoyed when it now feels impossible to finish the Ally-colored part of the cycle. So, I'm going to finish it off and build half-decks for them. Here's what I got so far.


Legendary Creature-


Auras/Enchantments cost less to cast.



Legendary Creature-


You may have CARDNAME enter the battlefield as a copy of a creature card in any graveyard.

When Cardname enters the battlefield, exile target instant or sorcery in a graveyard. If you do, copy it. You may cast the copy without paying its mana cost.



Legendary Creature-


, : Copy target triggered ability you control.



Legendary Creature-


When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, each opponent sacrifices a creature. CARDNAME deals damage to each opponent who didn't sacrifice a creature this way equal to a third of their life total.



Legendary Creature-


When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, target creature gets +X/+0, where X is equal to that creature's power, and gains trample until end of turn. Sacrifice that creature at end of turn.


It's a work in progress, but that's what I have. I also wonder, that since the enemy-colored partners have synergies with their respective color combination (Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix pays for Thrasios, Triton Hero's ability, etc.), I'm beginning to wonder if I should start over and begin again with that in mind.

C4rnif3X on Looking For a Card To ...

enpc - Ya I don't think it exists.. Just figured i'd check with people on here for something fringe I might've missed. There has been many times deck building where I search for cards that synergize together in gatherer, but then i'll be watching something on YouTube and see a card i've never seen before that should've appeared in a gatherer search.

The combo i'm trying to figure out goes drawing all of my library with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix + Thrasios, Triton Hero with infinite colorless mana, using Windfall, then each other player would loose on thier next turn. So i'm trying to figure out how to shuffle my hand back into library so I don't get milled out. Library of Leng is the closest thing i've found so far, since i'd discard to my library.. But Windfall would just make me draw that many again.

I know it sounds like a convoluted combo, but it really isn't since it comes up quite often with a bunch of wheel effects producing colorless for Kydele.

Odysseus_97 on Building EDH Simic

Hi everyone

I have been thinking about making a Simic Commander deck. There is no simic commander that really stands out to me, so its wide open of oppurtunities.

I kinda want to build a deck that can win by ramping out and making tons of mana. Since i have blue some bounce and untap effects would be nice too. And +1/+1 counters cant be avoided in simic so those are welcome as well.

I have been looking at the commander pairing of Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix/Thrasios, Triton Hero.

Some cards i have thought of including for win conditions could be:

Helix Pinnacle: Lots of mana, lots of counters fast.

Blue Sun's Zenith: Lots of mana makingan opponent draw a 100 cards and loose.

What do you guys think?

Is this a deck theme one could build a pretty good deck around? In my playgroup we are allowed to proxy, so my budget is unlimited, but dont suggest original dual lands and stuff like that.

Looking forward to read all the suggestions :)

Best Regards

My commanders are Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and Thrasios, Triton Hero. I want it to be a competitive deck. Comment below if you have any ideas. Thank you!

I circumvent the issue of needing to keep up that many mana by using Thrasios, Triton Hero as my second commander. It did work quite well so far to just use him if I didn't need to unmorph something.
Out of all the combat focused suggestions you made I really like True Conviction. I think I want to search for a copy. Doubling all triggers and pumping my guys :) As for the rest, these are all true finishers which I think aren't helping me enough else. If I were still running Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix they'd go up in value since I'd need to finish the game as fast as possible after dumping my hand.
Thanks for the suggestions of a fellow morph player :)

Sarkhan_Dragonclaw348 on Sultai +1/+1 Counters

2 months ago

Personally, I prefer a different partnering: Reyhan with Kydele. In general, artifacts don't get many +1/+1 counters, so unless you've got lots of artifact creatures in the deck, you're probably out of luck. What does Silas do here? It's a split strategy, I think. The deck runs well without the aside on artifacts. Thrasios, Triton Hero has some synergy since he can ramp, which is always a green thing, and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix benefits from card draw, which is a very Simic thing to do. If you have lots of things like Hangarback Walker in this deck, which benefit from dying and have +1/+1 counter synergy, AND are artifacts that Silas can use, great. But it looks like you're just using Silas because you didn't like the others. Unfortunately, artifacts are near the opposite of what green likes, and +1/+1 counters are near the opposite of what red likes, which is the main artifact color. The way I see it, if this were my deck, I'd do one of two things:- Cut Silas for a different partner commander and alter the 98 accordingly- Fill up with more artifact creatures that

These, I think, are the best partner synergies (in no particular order):

Akiri, Line-Slinger + Silas Renn, Seeker Adept for artifacts in WUBR

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper + Tymna the Weaver for lifegain, in RWB, BGRW, or BGW

Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder + Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper + Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa + Tana, the Bloodsower + Tymna the Weaver + Silas Renn, Seeker Adept for decks that like to attack/deal combat damage, in BGRW, BGW, RWG, RBG, RWB, BURW, BUWG, WUB, BUGR (I think that's all of them)

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker + Reyhan, Last of the Abzan for +1/+1 counters in nonred colors

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus + Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist + Vial Smasher the Fierce or Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for card draw effects/benefits in UR, UBR, GUR (don't partner Vial Smasher and Kydele, it's not useful)

Tymna the Weaver + Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for pay-life-draw-cards effects, and ramp in nonred colors

Tymna the Weaver + Vial Smasher the Fierce for deal-damage-draw-cards in Mardu colors

Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix + Reyhan, Last of the Abzan for sac-draw effects like Life's Legacy and Greater Good in BUG

Ravos, Soultender + Reyhan, Last of the Abzan for sac-reanimate effects in WBG

Thrasios, Triton Hero + Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix for card advantage and ramp in UG

Ravos, Soultender + Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa + Tana, the Bloodsower for token decks in WBG, WBRG, WBR

Okay. That's probably useless to you, but I was off on a tangent. Sorry. Anyway, to sum up: your deck is nice, but it would be a lot better if your commanders were synergistic. I have left many suggestions above.
