Cumulative upkeep (Blue) (At the beginning of your upkeep, put an age counter on this permanent, then sacrifice it unless you pay its upkeep cost for each age counter on it.)

Whenever an Island is tapped for mana, its controller may add (Blue) to his or her mana pool. If that Island is snow, its controller may add (Blue)(Blue) to his or her mana pool instead. Spend this mana only to pay for cumulative upkeep.

TeapotKing on Astral God of Preparation

The thing you wrote about mana sources with restrictions (like somberwald sage etc.) losing those restrictions is not true, Kruphix's ability only makes the mana colourless, any additional riders still apply. Take a look at the second ruling on Kruphix's Gatherer page. This means Somberwald Sage , Snowfall , Eldrazi Temple , and Shrine of the Forsaken Gods don't actually work as you're intending them to.

Snickles' advice is also wrong, Wastes is not a basic land type and doesn't count towards Collective Restraint's ability, see the 4th ruling for Wastes on the Gatherer.

I used to run Awakening in my Kruphix deck but I found it gives way too much advantage to everyone else at the table, so unless you're playing it deliberately for a group hug type effect, I would just run Worldly Tutor , Chord of Calling or Green Sun's Zenith as effectively a second copy of Seedborn Muse.

I would also say that Cyclonic Rift and Capsize are really must includes, I would cut Estrid's Invocation since you're only running 16 enchantments and Snowfall since it does nothing.

sir I would like to point out the awesome power of Snowfall for your deck.

bustermal on charge!! ....counters (chisei EDH)

I love it, especially the cumulative upkeep cards. Those totally didn't cross my mind. I can include Thought Lash, Glacial Chasm, Snowfall, Reality Twist, Ancestral Knowledge, Halls of Mist. Maybe I should put in some Snow-Covered Island(s)

Cauldron of souls seems pretty good too considering some creatures enter the battlefield with counters.

All good adds, thanks.

It won't take long before the bonus mana from Snowfall is only good for paying its own cumulative upkeep cost.
