I was inspired to build this deck after watching the episodes of Game Knights which featured partner commanders from C16. I also received some inspiration from Nekusar, the Mindrazer whom was a commander I had previously considered building a deck around. The objective of the deck is to cast high CMC spells with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix and rain down chaos with Vial Smasher the Fierce's ability which improves with higher CMCs.

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter and Sunbird's Invocation also improve with higher CMCs. Also, who doesn't love free casting? Blasphemous Act and simular spells that are high CMC but can be cast for much less work well with abilities such as Vial Smasher the Fierce's as they care about the CMC printed on the card not what was paid. (With the exception of spells, that while on the stack have their CMC become the total mana spent to cast them.)

Windfall and other Wheel effects draws cards for Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix but also causes opponents to discard triggering cards such as Fell Specter and Waste Not.

"Knowledge is cruel. It will break your heart and test your allegiances. Are you certain you want this curse?" - Kruphix, God of Horizons to Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix
