Nylea, God of the Hunt
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to green is less than five, Nylea isn't a creature. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to green.)
Other creatures you control have trample.
: Target creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn.

Buried Alive and Final Parting should go in. Ramos, Dragon Engine could be fun. Also more ramp would help a lot. Cultivate Kodama's Reach and Farseek can't be underestimated in 5 color. Even Coldsteel Heart could be helpful. The vivid lands, like Vivid Grove would be pretty helpful. Tarnished Citadel is another affordable option if you get it from the right seller.

Looking at it, first thing I would say is it does seem to be lacking some sort of theme besides X spells.
Cards I would personally cut
Rancor, Loxodon Warhammer, Haunted Cloak, Chariot of victory, Vorrac battlehorns- A lot of your creatures are going wide / benefits on that (Craterhoof, Hangarback, Hooded hydra kinda, Hydra broodmaster, gelatinis,verdeloth the ancient) over trampling over stuff. Having this many trample enablers is not going to be super great, cutting it down / removing them could help. Nylea, God of the Hunt could replace all of these and take use of your creature tutors.
Protean Hulk - Only can really grab hydra broodmaster, and pathbreaker ibex, seedborn muse or teferi with much effect, and you need to have a way to kill him as well. With the fact he is already 7 mana to put out, can be a dead card.
Basilisk Collar - The creatures you are playing with are going to be big enough for deathtouch to be less relevant, and lifelink is nice but at that point adding a card for lifelink isnt worth it Chariot of Victory, Haunted Cloak, Rancor
Leyline of lifeforce depending on meta - This stops you from countering your opponents creatures as well and considering you have a number of counters it could be a detriment
Vedalken Aethermage - Effect is VERY narrow, and wizardcycling only grabs teferi or trinket mage
Lifecraft Awakening - Most of the time you are going to want to put the mana towards something more impactful, this is essentially making a vanilla creature while making your artifact more vulnerable
Genesis Wave - Most of your creatures are base 0/0 creatures, and this kills them instead of putting them out. Aside from that, only a third of your deck is artifacts/creatures so only 1 in every 3 should in theory be something really useful
Wurmcalling - Normally this card is good if you are ramping hard because it gives you a mana dump every turn, but you are playing kruphix so you are usually going to want to save that mana up for something more impactful
Also, I see that cyclonic rift in your sideboard, if it isnt a cost issue, put it in. That card will win you so many games, and reduces your need for trample even more. dont need trample if they have no blockers

I think Yeva, Nature's Herald would be a good addition to this deck. Dictate of Heliod might also come in handy. Sphere of Safety and Ghostly Prison as well as Crawlspace makes it even more difficult to attack you. You want to keep Monarch at all costs with this deck, since it is perfect card draw, so Regal Behemoth and Entourage of Trest will make that happen. Nylea, God of the Hunt and Karametra, God of Harvests are additions worth considering in this deck. Explosive Vegetation , Peregrination , Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are ideal ramp.
I hope this helps!

According to the Gatherer rulings, "The type-changing ability that can make the God not be a creature functions only on the battlefield. It’s always a creature card in other zones, regardless of your devotion to its color." Therefore, you can cast Nylea, God of the Hunt with a Nikya of the Old Ways on the field.
As for shutting down Nikya's ability, as far as I know, there is no way to remove just the first ability without also removing the mana-doubling ability. Furthermore, all of these effects are on noncreature permanents, thus making it rather difficult to cast them with a Nikya out. This is the Scryfall search I did to find that out.
