The Deck

thrasios and kydele are a gift to EDH combo. The deck is all about ramp and draw, and with two commanders who each tackle one of these components, it does it quite well.Ultimately, the goal of the deck is to go infinite. Infinite mana is all it needs, using thrasios to draw into either Goblin Cannon or Blue Sun's Zenith for game.

Thrasios, Triton Hero

thrasios is the hinge pin of the deck. Alone, his ability starts letting you either ramp or gain card advantage. Add in infinite mana, and you have your entire deck in your hands, and all of your lands on the field. He is cheap to play, and only requires colored mana, which becomes important when producing infinite . His ability only requires colorless as well, meaning once you have him out, not another colored drop is needed.

Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix

Having kydele is just a bonus. But what a bonus it is. You could make a deck just fine out of thrasios alone, having him go off with infinite mana combos inside the deck. But having a second commander with the ability to produce infinite mana, that just takes the cake.

kydele goes infinite much like the elves. Umbral Mantle, Staff of Domination, and Sword of the Paruns all let her pay to untap herself, netting extra mana each time...provided you've drawn enough cards this turn. That's where cards like Brainstorm, Windfall, and others come in. thrasios, too, can aid in hitting the required number of cards, if necessity dictates.

Combos

While kydele can produce infinite mana, she is by far not the only nor the best way to do this. Palinchron combos with Vorinclex, Phantasmal Image, Deadeye Navigator, and Mana Reflection. Tooth and Nail and Defense of the Heart can both be used to put this combo directly on the table, as well.

Isochron Scepter+Dramatic Reversal can also net infinite mana with a couple of mana rocks on the field, kydele included.

Illusionist's Bracers produce infinite mana with either Aphetto Alchemist or Seeker of Skybreak , provided either Kydele or another mana rock is on the field.

The Wizards & Their Muse

There are a few other cards worth mentioning. It is worth noting that both thrasios and Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix are Wizards. This provides fantastic synergy with Azami, Lady of Scrolls, for both advantage and combo draw, and Patron Wizard , for some extra combo action.

The other two cards of note are Seedborn Muse and Awakening. With thrasios, these let you draw/ramp for each opponent's turn. Add in Patron Wizard for a decent soft-lock.

Conclusion

Overall, the deck plays more like a blue deck, with the addition of ramp. It relies on a sizable counterspell package, as opposed to removal, and otherwise it just draws and ramps and draws until it goes off.

My original build was more multipurpose, and didn't combo with kydele at all. Lemme know any feedback on the current combo-focused decklist. Look forward to the help.

Finished building the deck in paper. It won its first two matches, and I'm quite pleased with how it plays.

Removed Remand for Muddle the Mixture, which is able to fetch a large number of my combo pieces.
