Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix Discussion

Go infinite with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and Staff of Domination. Draw infinite cards, Generate infinite mana, then win with your wincons, Walking Ballista and Laboratory Maniac.

+1'ed. I went with eldrazi that had annihilator for my similar Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix deck(I recommend her as well). My deck failed when I played it with planeswalkers outside of Teferi and kiora. Maybe also find room for Paradox Engine since prophet of kruphix is banned? High Tide?

Boseiju, Who Shelters All so your X spells can get through. Sylvan Library, Brainstorm, Sensei's Divining Top, Prime Speaker Zegana for some better card draw.

I also think your deck would be a lot stronger if you included some heavier artifact ramp such as Grim Monolith, Mana Vault, Chrome Mox. Maybe even Fellwar Stone. I also really like running Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim because they can search for shock lands (or original duals if you're that guy) and the lands don't enter tapped. If you are going that route, Lotus Cobra becomes ridiculous, particularly if you are running fetch lands too (which you should be if you can afford them).

Finally, I would consider the Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and Vial Smasher the Fierce partnership a little better then your current one. Adding red gives you access to a lot more Wheel of Fortune effects. Then again, I can understand not wanting to add another color as it requires you to change your deck up quite a bit.

Sorry, I know most of my suggestions are on the pricier side but I did see a few more expensive cards in your list so I thought you might be willing to throw down a little more $$$. If you have any questions, let me know! I am a pretty seasoned commander/EDH player.

Pieguy396 on Best Izzet Control commander?

I would definitely second Keranos, God of Storms as a control commander, although I would recommend maybe going partners with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus, as Green is very helpful.

Glad I could help... originally i did a Gaddock Teeg deck but no one liked it or me... so i switched to Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis but thats without black... to make commanders relevant is kinda hard but Looking around another good one could be the pairing commanders... Tymna the Weaver + either Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa or Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper - usurper being probably better... if you change your mind about the colors (adding blue) Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix is the best with weaver in my opinion...

Okay, you asked me for advice, so here goes. Hope it's not too harsh. ;D

I'm just gonna start with creatures for now.

Advocate of the Beast seems super out of place, you don't have a single beast in the deck, so unless I'm missing something...

Same thing for Arcum Dagsson. You don't have a single artifact creature in the deck, and your only way to make them is Cultivator of Blades. If you can't reliably activate him he's just a really inefficient 2/2. Also, I assume you were going to use him to find Gonti's Aether Heart, but honestly, I don't think you have enough artifact/energy support to make that worthwhile either. If you cut Gonti's heart, you might as well also cut your other energy cards.

Hermit Druid is only good if your a heavy graveyard deck or are using him to combo, so I'd cut him.

Simic Guildmage is neat utility, but it's painfully inefficient. 2 mana to move a single counter. No thank you. But that's just me.

Also you have two Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix.

Some very very good creatures I would suggest instead:

Whirler Rogue: 3 exp + unblockable? Oh yeah. Also is a rogue for Notorious Throng.

Mindless Automaton, Cold-Eyed Selkie and Etched Oracle are great for drawing cards.

Triskelion and Walking Ballista are great for winning games when combat is inconvenient.

Deranged Hermit: 5 mana for 5 exp is a good rate.

Shrieking Drake is an MVP. Any unspent blue mana? Convert it into experience at a 1:1 ratio.

MoGoose831 on Tokens and what not!

Rhys is freaking amazing but doesn't work in the deck. I'm looking for ways to generate tokens for me and my opponents. The creatures i do have do this for my opponent upon entering the battlefield, and Rhys only does it when tapped and just for me.

I do need more card draw but that will have to come from spells or artifacts not creatures.

I chose Ravos and Kydele for two reasons. 1 two creatures is better than one for mass polymorph and 2 both of their abilities are helpful. Ravos, Soultender buffs all my tokens making them more survivable and potentially allowing me to win through combat and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix will allow cards like Alliance of Arms to blow up!!

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
