Courser of Kruphix occurrence in decks from the last year
Courser of Kruphix Discussion

Courser of Kruphix and Ancient Greenwarden or Titania, Protector of Argoth as a way to win while you Strip Mine combo perhaps? I'm also not sure how to play staxish synergies but I am a bit surprised to see no Elvish Reclaimer? It also seems pretty easy to slot in the Dark Depths Thespian Stage combo if you want. Cool deck, love the style, good luck with the build!

With all your ways to play additional lands, would Courser of Kruphix be worth testing?

I think the weak link in your deck is probably Kalonian Behemoth. It's almost never going to be better than either baloth despite costing more. If you're looking for protection against removal, I've had fun with Whispersilk Cloak on Baloth Woodcrasher in the past. If you want another beast, Leatherback Baloth can come out on turn 2 and still draw a card with its 4 power late game. Spearbreaker Behemoth is another expensive option that offers protection to your largest threats.
More than that though, I'd want more ways to trigger landfall or take advantage of it. Harrow, Explosive Vegetation, New Frontiers, Oracle of Mul Daya, Courser of Kruphix, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Frontier Guide, Sakura-Tribe Scout, and Budoka Gardener Flip are all options for various budgets. The best include would probably just be fetchlands. The expensive ones are obviously better (ie: Fabled Passage and Prismatic Vista), but Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, and Field of Ruin are all fine choices for casual games.

LOVE the list. As a fellow party animal, it's always awesome to see more Xenagos lists. The list looks super solid, though there are some little things that I think would be worth considering.
Despite being a removal magnet, The Great Henge is such a house in a deck like this. It's nice draw and "Ramp", depending on how early you can play it, and it also buffs up your creatures.
Sneak Attack is an absolute slam-dunk in a deck like this. Being able to sneak out 2-3 6+ drops onto the board to kill more than 1 player is such a good feeling (Imagine sneaking a Worldspine, Pathbreaker and whatever else, then pumping Ghalta off a Xenagos trigger and giving everything +30/+30 and Trample!).
Return of the Wildspeaker is another great draw effect, and it has the useful mode of pumping your creatures if you don't need the draw. Being an instant is super powerful too, and makes it a strictly better Soul's Majesty. It's also harder to get blown out by spot removal with Return because it checks the highest power of creatures, instead of targeting one creature, so you can still draw some cards if someone uses instant speed spot removal on one of your beaters.
Explosive Vegetation has become less attractive to me since the 4 mana slot is now home to so many better ramp cards, namely Migration Path. I'd rather have this since it has the added advantage of cycling away if you don't need the ramp at that moment.
This is absolutely personal preference, but 30 creatures is the bare minimum number of creatures I would be comfortable running in a deck like this. You have a good amount of tutors, so it's not as big of a deal here, but something to consider.
The new Radha, Heart of Keld might be the new Courser of Kruphix, if only because it doesn't make you reveal your top card to everyone. It's true that Courser is 1 color, but in a 2 color deck fixing shouldn't really be an issue. The fact that it can make itself into a big threat is also really neat.
Quartzwood Crasher could potentially be a replacement for Giant Adephage, since it's cheaper to cast and can make MASSIVE tokens since it checks each creature with trample. It will even make multiple tokens if you hit more than one player.
Skarrg, the Rage Pits is technically a worse KWR, but I like having as many ways to give trample as possible. I don't have any land tutors though, so you're probably fine without it.
I love gushing about Xenagod, but I'll reign it in for now. Most of these are very subjective (Except Sneak Attack...I reeeeeeeally love that card...) and overall the list looks badass!
(If you wanna peek at my list, here you go! Xenagos's Party Animals It's far from perfect, but I've been tweaking and tuning it for a while and I'm constantly testing new cards to see what works.)
