With Kenny, I like sac effects because it guarantees I can reanimate the creature for value. Fleshbag Marauder, Demon's Disciple, Merciless Executioner, Plaguecrafter, etc.

Bloom Tender is great, as is Phantasmal Image. Of course, Dockside+loops. Ranger-Captain of Eos is great with recursion. Cataclysmic Gearhulk is also a good backup plan for when things go wrong, and easier to reuse because you can sac it to itself. On that note, any of the Altars or other sac outlets are great. There's Peregrine Drake loops, too, and it's also just great for value if you have a cost reducer out for Kenny.

Some cards I think would be worth considering swapping out: Esika, God of the Tree  Flip, Burnished Hart, Ethersworn Adjudicator (IMO, Caustic Caterpillar is best, or Cathar Commando for artifact/enchantment hate), Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Celestial Dawn.

You could probably justify going down on lands if you upped your dork count, which would play really well if you added Ashnod's Altar to use them for mana later. City of Brass is also a pretty budget rainbow land. Chittering Witch is a good source of removal, blockers, or fodder for sac effects. Renegade Rallier and Sun Titan can make for some explosive turns, as well. Shriekmaw is great for targeted removal that can later be reanimated. Cowardice and Willbreaker are more nice effects like Horobi. Fires of Invention can be another effect like Wilderness Reclamation, and doesn't limit Kenny's activations.

But finally, my absolute most favorite card when playing casual Kenny is Final Parting. Basically another Jarad's Orders, but adding Unburial Rites or Priest of Fell Rites makes it a tight package to reanimate a fatty, or tutor one of your enchantments if needed.

Cheers!

Your deck is illegal because Golos is banned in Commander.

Using a different 5 color commander (like Esika, God of the Tree  Flip) will get around this.

Perhaps. If Esika, God of the Tree  Flip is selected instead of Morophon, the Boundless, then the WUBRG tribal flavor of the deck takes a hit. From a power perspective, Esika, God of the Tree  Flip > Morophon, the Boundless. Flavor-wise, Morophon, the Boundless > Esika, God of the Tree  Flip.

Neat idea, but would it be easier to run Esika, God of the Tree  Flip as commander instead?

TypicalTimmy on Commander's whose color identity are …

I am trying to make a list of Commander's who have a color identity that extends beyond their casting cost. These are the ones I know of, and I would like to know if there are any others out there.

This list EXCLUDES MDFCs from Kaldheim and Strixhaven, such as Esika, God of the Tree  Flip, Jorn, God of Winter  Flip, Blex, Vexing Pest  Flip and Plargg, Dean of Chaos  Flip. The reason I am asking to not include these types of Commanders is because their color identity and casting costs match.

I am specifically seeking Commander's who have a casting cost that lacks their full color identity - that is to say, they have colored mana symbols in activated or triggered ability costs that are not part of their cost to cast the spell.

@kalanare I actually added both of those immediately! Just hadn't had time to update the decklist. Check out the new configuration with Esika, God of the Tree  Flip!

As for The World Tree and Purphoros, God of the Forge, the gods will enter as creatures if there's enough devotion. Since they're all entering at the same time the, they all see that there's enough devotion and enter as creatures.
