Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix Discussion

ALRIGHT! Its been a while since I have updated the tapped out list. I have been doing a lot of testing and fine tuning of this deck. I have made several changes that have made the combo more consistent or easier to achieve. This was done by the inclusion of High Tide, a little more ramp, and a few more tutors. The deck is also a lot more interactive since it gained a lot of tempo pieces to slow your opponents. I also removed some of the more situational cards such as the weaker clones. I have been trying to use this deck against more competitive ones in my play group (Urza, Lord High Artificer, Thrasios, Triton Hero/Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, The Gitrog Monster, The First Sliver). The deck does quite well and seems like it can be semi-competitive when its played correctly. I'll keep playing and testing different cards and update the list whenever something new comes up or another set comes out.

Love the ideas! Keruga can actually perform just well, Ancient Tomb, Gemstone Caverns, Mystical Dispute, Search for Tomorrow, Force of Vigor, Emry, Lurker of the Loch, Force of Will, Force of Negation, Misdirection, etc. all work super well in those decks.
Really, filling the game early on with a sometimes slower start is perfectly fine, when most of the Keruga lists can go off by casting some Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix into it for a big storm turn, with Coalition Relic-type ramp to set up, and Ghostly Flicker/Deadeye Navigator type effects to win.
Do either of you want to make a sample list for some of you favorites. I'll write the lists in this post and may make a separate decklist mini-article over them all!

Partner commanders are powerful, and often free your deck's ability to do more than a single commander deck. Companions give decks restrictions on what cards they can run. By running both it limits your deck even more, since most partner pairings don't work with the companion requirements.
Yorion, Sky Nomad and Lutri, the Spellchaser straight up can't be run as companions, and Jegantha, the Wellspring won't work since it requires five colors, and no partner pairing currently allows for it. No partner pairing also allows for Lurrus of the Dream-Den. Gyruda, Doom of Depths also can't be run, since no partners are both even cmc and have black in their color identity. Kaheera, the Orphanguard also can't work, since the types aren't found on partners that can be run together.
Now, what lists are now able to be run?
Wow, that only took a half hour longer to write up than expected.
Which of these would you want to make, if any, and how would you make them?

Lands: Flooded Grove, Sunken Ruins, and Twilight Mire are good in 3 color, and you appear to have an abundance of basics you could hew from. I also like Reflecting Pool and Exotic Orchard in 3 color+. Also good are Prismatic Vista and Fabled Passage, even if you don't wanna bother with the etb tapped Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse. Path of Ancestry and Opulent Palace are also worth considering, if you can get over their tappedness. Could also consider the omnipresent Vesuva and Thespian's Stage for other people's good lands or for your Cabal. I also rather like Alchemist's Refuge in these colors, and Ancient Tomb in general, which is also kinda thematic with your Gorgon general. Also Temple of the False God. And Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx might be super good with all your blue dudes. That means you could also run Deserted Temple (and run with a mini temple theme) for your Cabal and Nythos, as well as potentially your copylands. Finally, Strip Mine never hurts, unless you want to maintain more basics.
You've got Demonic Tutor, might as well run the superior Vampiric Tutor as well.
Genesis Wave might also be good, again, if a bit mana-heavy. In the same vein: Omniscience. Card's an obvious bomb with your general, I wouldn't shy away from it. You could also combo out with Null Profusion and/or Recycle, but that might be a line too far. Or maybe not, it's not exactly "infinite" per se! I encourage you to run em, go big on the Janktown Express.
Thassa's Oracle might be something of a win-con for you, and it's not bad with all your blue dudes either way.
Villainous Wealth from the new set is kinda cool, but maybe not entirely necessary.
Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix is a neat mana source, especially when you compare her to something like Thran Dynamo. Might be worth considering.
Abundance is also kinda neat for your draws–can guarantee no lands if you don't want em. Might be a little underwhelming, but might be a bomb, I'm not sure.
Burgeoning is almost must-run with this general, also, now that I think about it. You'd be way ahead of everyone all the time with it and your general.
Alright, that's all I can come up with at the moment, but I reckon that's a good amount of adds to consider for you already 104 card deck. A few of these I feel like you really should work in there. I'll take a look at potential cuts a little later!

Hiya folks, just gunna drop this here for awhile... As much as I don't need new projects I've me up with another idea while being bored to death at work. That idea though needs your ideas, examples, and input. If you haven't guessed from the title...
That leave the 4 other colors to work with. Commander options are in short supply for these colors being:
I guess we have to ask what do we lose with red, and it's a lot. Fire breathing, most tribal bluffs, cost reduction, and dragon tokens. Could be replaced sort of, but that leans heavy on green for ramp which is the least shiny of the dragon colors I think. So much so that I am on the fence about dropping to 3 colors.
Esper dragons offer control as most esper decks do, but can it go fast enough like a typical dragon deck or will it stall for the long game? Or keep green and drop another color? White seems like the next best choice except I like Taigam, Ojutai Master and Scalelord Reckoner alot for this. Sans black would lose alot of removal options like both Silumgars, Crux of Fate, and Deathbringer Reagent. Blue too also loses the Silumgars, Taigam and control options like counterspells.
So now that my thoughts are out of the way, what are yours? Have any of you done this before and care to share examples/ideas?
