Spectral Searchlight is fun when you have a teammate since you can use it to give your teammate mana. At any rate I think it's better than Mana Prism. Pariah could be fun since you can enchant opponents' creatures with it.
You might like these too: Magus of the Candelabra , Fertile Ground , Market Festival , Captured by the Consulate , Silence , Pir's Whim , Virtus's Maneuver , Zndrsplt's Judgment , Imperial Mask , Capital Punishment , Torment of Hailfire , Exsanguinate , Overwhelming Splendor , Curse of Shallow Graves

It seems like you have a solid plan going. I don't know how your playgroup views infinite combos, but an easy one to achieve is simply adding Magus of the Candelabra . Combine that with Temur Sabertooth, Lightning Greaves and Mana Reflection, and you've got infinite green that can make your Omnath lethal in one shot.

Nice you picked a really cool general for your first EDH! Nice to see Gruul getting some love. You do have a lot of noncreature stuff though, which your general seems to hate.
You might swap some of those noncreature things out for some of these: Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , Krosan Restorer , Magus of the Candelabra (this guy is super good when your general is out, all your lands will effectively make 3 mana each!), Voyaging Satyr , Reclamation Sage , Genesis Hydra , Savageborn Hydra , Apocalypse Hydra , Garruk's Horde , Garruk's Packleader , Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, Drumhunter , Artisan of Kozilek , Ulvenwald Tracker , Foe-Razer Regent , Gruul Ragebeast

Not a bad start! But I think there are some improvements you could make. I would take out these cards as they seem less impactful: Magus of the Arena, Elder of Laurels, Scourge of Skola Vale, Wild Celebrants, Rust Scarab, Mistcutter Hydra, Nessian Asp, Soul of Zendikar, Stonebrow Krosan Hero, Pyrewild Shaman, Stoneshock Giant, Ancient Silverback, Sporemound
I'd replace those cards with these: Temur Sabertooth , Ulvenwald Hydra , Knollspine Dragon , Ulvenwald Observer , Soul of the Harvest , Garruk's Packleader , Fierce Empath , Farhaven Elf , Elvish Rejuvenator , Magus of the Candelabra , Stone-Seeder Hierophant , Somberwald Sage , Greenwarden of Murasa

Hey, good start, but I think you're focusing too much on what you do with all the mana once you have Kruphix on the battlefield. What comes first is actually getting Kruphix on the battlefield since without him it's going to be difficult to cast high CMC Eldrazi. With ramp strategies have a plan for the early game and another one for the late game when you have all the mana.
Kruphix is five mana which is lot to have to pay without having more early game ramp to get your mana engine online. He cares about devotion therefore consider land Auras as ramp? They can act as early game ramp and/or be a source of even more mana later on by expanding on the strategy of untapping your lands: Seedborn, Reclamation, Kiora.

Mystic Remora is a staple blue card in multiplayer Commander that's great to have in the early game and just as good with Kruphix in later game because you'll have mana to keep paying it's upkeep cost. No max hand size is great with Remora. Nissa, Who Shakes the World with Forests can produce a lot of green mana and more mana doublers are good with Kruphix.

Unbound Flourishing I think is worth keeping. Magus of the Candelabra is going to be your call. Play it and see how well it works. As long as you have a mana doubler out, it should be gaining you mana, and works really well with lands that produce two or more mana; or a Gaea's Cradle or Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun . The other cards in the maybeboard I think are ok to cut. I don't see how X-costed counterspells are better than the other counterspells, so I think those are good to cut.

@bushido_man96: My BUMPer Car Blasts this open.
Well, I think I got all creatures w/ Casting Costs including . But I couldn't just let it end there. I wanted your thoughts of some cards on the HOTSEAT as to what to cut in queue as part of the Maybeboard. I have Magus of the Candelabra , which can make for a lot of . But are any of the HOTSEAT members worth keeping, or cutting?
