Kruphix, God of Horizons Over Omnath, Locus of Mana

Although Omnath is an EDH menace, I personally believe that Kruphix has far more attributes, and here is a list of reasons why.

  • Devotion: Some may consider the necessity of 7 or more devotion to green/blue a real inhibitor for any commander, but i consider this to be a major advantage for Kruphix, God of Horizons . When he is exclusively an enchantment, he is relatively harder to remove than other commanders, this is also due to him retaining indestructibility. say goodbye to creatue board-wipes, they're not your problem. In my experience playing this deck, other players tend to ignore Kruphix due to his lack of threatening board presence (compared to other permanents or creatures) and his elusiveness to removal. In a typical 3-4 player EDH game, single target removal spells are limited, and Kruphix is just not worth it.

  • > : Although green spells are very potent on the battlefield, it gets nasty when when blue is thrown into the mix. Green can give you access to aggressive ramp, draw, and creature tutors. That is very nice in itself. Blue gives tempo control, heavy removal, counter spells, draw, and spell tutors. But when these two colors play off each other, the synergy is out of this world. Mana ramp in one hand, Card advantage in the other. This provides the player with a buffet of high CMC spells, that flip the game on it's head.

Built and Played

I built this deck, and this is a 100% accurate schematic. My deductions are based solely off personal experiences playing against a myriad of decks with varying speeds and play styles. This deck has been lots of fun and i don't think there are any other changes i'd like to make. There is a minute number of counter spells, because I, as a player, loathe the use of counter spells, and that's just a personal choice. The majority of my victories end in the entire deck being played out, drawing almost my entire library, then crushing my opponents with a massive eldrazi board state. Otherwise I win via Psychosis Crawler , or normal eldrazi beat down. Whenever playing a game of two-headed dragon/giant, Nekusar, the Mindrazer can be an indispensable ally.

Form and Function

The deck's premise is straight forward, ramp up to big bombshells of spells and creatures while keeping your opponents distracted with removal. Each card in this deck belongs to at least one of four categories, but many of the cards are blends of the categories.

  1. Card advantage
  2. Mana-ramp
  3. Big creatures
  4. Utility

There are many cards that hit at least two of these categories at once. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is huge, ends games when he attacks (Annihilator is OP), and gives a huge card advantage. Ironically enough, I fetch for Kozilek, the Great Distortion more often, due to the yoked out card advantage i get from him. 12/12 menace and a countering activated ability is just the icing on the cake. Every card in this deck has a role to play. The real powerhouse that pulses at the core of this deck, usually ending the game as soon as i lay it down, is Omniscience . If gone un-interrupted, I usually end up playing out my entire library, thanks to the sheer amount of card draw packed into this deck. If Psychosis Crawler is out, I can also just kill everyone from drawing my whole library. There is one combo in this deck, that is in fact infinite when Omniscience is on the field. Eternal Witness combined with Evacuation or Baral's Expertise it lets me re-cast my draw based creatures, or lets me infinitely ramp and draw with Solemn Simulacrum and Coiling Oracle . Although it may seem like a rare combo, when i'm drawing a ton of cards, I inevitably run into it. that's the deck's gist in a nutshell. Extremely fun, and potent.

Thanks for taking the time to look over the deck, feel free to leave a +1 if you liked what you saw!
