Nice deck! I would add Sneak Attack for some redundany.

I'm currently working on a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck Special K. There's a few cards I'd like to throw in the mix. I'm thinking I'd like Sneak Attack, Bearer of the Heavens, Burning Anger, Hydra's Growth, Praetor's Counsel, and possibly Fungal Sprouting. But the major concerns I have are: messing up any synergy I currently have, and figuring out proper cuts. Anyway, any help is appreciated.

Correct, you still have to pay the mana cost while using Mystic Forge. You only get to skip the mana cost if the effect specifically says you cast the spell "without paying its mana cost".

Cards that let you easily avoid paying large mana costs are purposefully few and far between, as the mana system is a core part of what makes the game work properly. Some classic examples include Sneak Attack, Through the Breach, Reanimate, Goryo's Vengeance, Show and Tell, Mind's Desire, etc. One of the "Deck Help" forums would be a better place to go to ask for card suggestions.

Hey! Here's a list of stuff that I'm interested in. The amount won't add up, so we can talk about adding stuff from my end if there is anything else you're looking for. In no particular order:

Mana Vault

Sneak Attack

Captain Sisay

Austere Command

Solemn Simulacrum

Basalt Monolith

Hurkyl's Recall

I'm happy with any combination of these. There are other, lower wants that I have but those are the main ones. Thanks!

Basically just "endstep". do a gatherer search for "endstep" in and see what you can find. Here are a few other good ones.

Elemental Mastery

Flameshadow Conjuring

Impromptu Raid

Killer Instinct

Planeswalker's Mischief

Psychic Vortex

Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded

Sneak Attack

Underworld Breach

And that's just Enchantments I searched.

I do touch upon Sneak Attack in the notable exclusions part. My reasoning on it is that the vast majority of the creatures in the deck are <4 CMC, so there's not a huge savings cheating them out, though it's certainly not bad either. the big problem is that it requires you to have creatures in hand, which you'll probably run out of quickly. I felt Shifting Shadows was better in some respects since it guaranteed I would get a creature on board every turn it triggered. Sneak attack is also ~$30 or so and so it's not the most accessible card. So far Scroll of Fate has been working well in a similar position though. the ability to put out lands, artifacts, enchantments, planeswalkers, & creatures is really a huge upside, and even at once a turn cycle, it's really making an impact when I use it, often just by giving me some land ramp.

All Is Dust is fine, but I would put it in as a substitute for a board wipe, rather than spot removal. Unstable Obelisk is a slightly below average, but still "ok" mana-rock, so even if I never need to activate the removal clause it's still "fine" overall, and generally there's only ever one or two problem cards like Rest in Peace or etc. in any given game.

I think you're right, if I was in a meta with more pillow fort I would definitely want all is dust though, or Aura Thief, etc. definitely adjust things to your meta. for me it hasn't been an issue so far though.

if you're a fan of MLD, go for it! Definitely able to break parity on those effects with marchesa, so if you and your group are about it then it's certainly viable.

As someone who has been tinkering with this deck for a long time, very very good primer! A few key cards seem to be missing from consideration in the way of Sneak Attack most notably. I don't really understand Unstable Obelisk. It is nice to be able to remove anything, but it doesn't feel like it pulls its weight. Does it to you? I feel as though an All Is Dust which you'd had mentioned would pull more weight slowing down your opponents without affecting you greatly and also allowing you a way to punch through pillow fort strategies effectively. Lastly, I really like having a finisher of some kind in the form of mass land destruction Obliterate, but that is just me.
