Kykar, Wind's Fury Discussion
5 days ago
Kykar, Wind's Fury + Bishop of Wings + Arcane Adaptation + Anointed Procession . Turn one, plains. Turn two, plains, cast Bishop. Turn three, Island, cast Arcane Adaptation, naming angels. Turn four, Mountain, cast Kykar. Turn five, cast Anointed Procession, creating a single spirit/angel off of the cast, and gain 4 life. Sacrifice the spirit for a red mana, creating two more spirit/angels and gain 8 life. Repeat for infinite red mana, life, and tokens.

What Kogarashi said is correct, but additionally, note that if the spell cast to create the copy was a non-creature spell (ex: Dualcaster Mage is a creature, whereas Twincast is a non-creature spell) Kykar, Wind's Fury would trigger.
So here, Kykar is triggering for casting the spell which copies, not the spell that is copied.

If I copied a spell while Kykar, Wind's Fury was on the field, would it trigger his effect twice or only once?

The reason you play Kykar, Pyromancer and Ascendancy is to get more value out of casting instants/sorceries especially Kykar because Spirits can be ramp. The Spirits/Elementals and draw/discard are bonuses for every instant/sorcery you cast. Which is good because the more value you can get out of the cards you cast the better your deck will be and the more fun game play will be.
Sevinne is very lackluster because you can only copy one spell a turn and that spell has to be cast from your graveyard. These restrictions are terribly slow since most flashback costs are a lot of mana and there's not enough good flashback cards to matter. If you want to play a spell heavy theme which is called "Spellslinger" then you're better off playing instants that copy other spells you cast or your opponents cast: Expansion / Explosion , Narset's Reversal , Reverberate , Increasing Vengeance . These are better than relying on Sevinne and having spells in your graveyard as well as having a way to cast them from your graveyard.
Thousand-Year Storm gives you the effect you want with copying instants/sorceries you cast and it copies any one you cast from hand or graveyard not just the first one you cast from your graveyard. Thousand-Year also copies the spell you cast equal to the number of spells you cast before it during the turn. This effect is called "Storm" in Magic and it's one of the most powerful mechanics in Magic. Mind's Desire is an example of a powerful budget card with Storm.
In the Mystic Intellect precon Elsha of the Infinite is a better card and overall better Commander General than Sevinne. You can cast noncreature/nonland cards on the top of your library with Elsha this includes instants/sorceries. Can cast sorceries on the top of your library as instants which with Spellslinger is very good. Elsha has Prowess, she gets bigger until end of turn the more noncreature spells you cast each turn. She can be a threat to do Commander damage by playing the Spellslinger theme.
You could change the precon into a Spellslinger deck with Elsha as General. With Elsha you don't have the restriction of playing cards that have flashblack instead you can play the best instant/sorceries that Jeskai can offer which does include some cards with flashback. Being able to cast instant/sorceries from the top of your library is better and faster than what Sevinne does. Elsha doesn't want a lot of creatures because her ability can't be used with creature cards, but some creatures who give you value when you cast instants/sorceries are good. This is an example of a budget creature base with Elsha:
- Soulfire Grand Master
- Young Pyromancer
- Kykar, Wind's Fury
- God-Eternal Kefnet
- Niv-Mizzet, Parun
Elsha works with Planeswalkers because a Planeswalker is not a creature card. Ral, Storm Conduit and Narset, Parter of Veils are budget Planeswalkers who interact well with instants/sorceries. Ral's -2 loyalty ability can copy an instant/sorcery you cast and he combos with Expansion / Explosion and other instant/sorceries that copy. Elsha works with artifacts which is helpful because mana rocks can be used for ramp to play Elsha/Thousand-Year faster and then afterwards when cast they count toward Elsha's Prowess.

Looking through that page you might consider the following
Chain Reaction , Cathartic Reunion , Narset's Reversal , Opt , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Soulfire Grand Master , Propaganda , God-Eternal Kefnet , Smothering Tithe , Primal Amulet Flip, Young Pyromancer , Jeskai Ascendancy , Swords to Plowshares , Kykar, Wind's Fury , Goblin Electromancer .
I have not played the deck so my suggestions might all be crap :) Good luck.

Perhaps these too:
Your list is very nice as-is, but hopefully I was able to help!

TypicalTimmy, I disagree. I don’t think end step proliferating makes the deck. And if Atraxa is taken out of the picture by opponents (loses abilities, consistently bounced or countered, becomes too expensive due to command tax), your whole strategy falls apart. It’s also a bit slow, as it takes a few turns for her effect to really make a difference. I can agree she’s a good option, but I don’t think she’s the best. More efficient/reliable options in my opinion include Ramos, Dragon Engine , Will + Rowan, Elsha of the Infinite , Kykar, Wind's Fury , Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip (for Chandra tribal), and even Kethis, the Hidden Hand .

This isn’t something you may go far but since you are already running Narset, Parter of Veils you can also run Windfall , Winds of Change , Teferi's Puzzle Box , Reforge the Soul , Wheel of Fate or Wheel of Fortune . If you do, you force your opponent to get rid of their hand and only draw one card while you get a new hand. Pretty mean but it’s powerful.
Overall I like your list of instants you are running. Seems like they all should work really well! +1 Good luck
