Hey, interesting budget version of Kykar.
Lots of burn here doesn't have enough oomph when each opponent will have 40 or more life. Glacial Ray, Magma Spray, Lightning Helix and other single effect burn spells like this are subpar in multiplayer Commander. Flame Rift doesn't do enough, hitting all players for 4 damage a single time is not worth a card. Even being able to flashback these spells with Backdraft Hellkite isn't good enough because they're only doing damage to one player. Some advice is research Torbran, Thane of Red Fell burn decks and mimic the burn strategy with Kykar?
Barbs and Earth seem like very good repeatable burn sources with Kykar since have lots of mana rocks (could have more), Spirits can make red mana and playing lots of basic lands. Tremors and Goblin Bombardment want an infinite combo for they're burn that can create infinite tokens with Kykar or Saheeli, Sublime Artificer.
By adding this budget combo you add some more competitiveness to your deck and Guttersnipe is another burn win condition with the combo. You can't do this combo if you control Spellshock. But with Jeskai you have many options that can bounce/tuck/destroy an enchantment before comboing while still keeping it in your control to burn your opponents until you want to combo.
What Kykar provides for a burn strategy is extra damage from attacking with fliers, 1/1 Spirits and Kykar. Animosity can make Spirits more of attacking threats and with a lot of them a win condition. Consider increasing the fort with Obedience and Prison? Obedience can also be a nice source of repeatable life gain with extort since you gain life each time equal to the number of opponents you have.
Consider adding more draw as well as more mana efficient draw to expand on spellslinger?
Tandem Lookout when soulbond to a creature who can do damage to an opponent or all opponents you draw cards. Use this interaction with Guttersnipe since when he does damage you draw a number of cards equal to the number of opponents you have. Zo-Zu the Punisher is also good with Lookout because all players can play lands including yourself to draw. Lookout can change who it's soulbond to which is really helpful to first soulbond with flying Kykar or a Spirit and then change when a creature ETB who can do damage to opponents.
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Fog Bank
- Essence Backlash
- Boros Fury-Shield
- Glacial Ray
- Magma Spray
- Momentary Blink
- Lightning Helix
- Faith's Shield
- Flame Rift
- Not Forgotten
- Martyr's Cause
- Backdraft Hellkite
Good luck with your deck.

[email protected]_only I did immediately think of this deck as soon as this guy got spoiled! I guess my only issue is that an 0/4 just isn't that big, so it doesn't work too well as a blocker, especially compared to the likes of Fog Bank or Guard Gomazoa.
The other issue is that even if we WANTED people to swing at it with a 1/1 or something just to draw a free card, we have so many pillowfort tax effects they'd have to pay 2 or more mana just to do it, which is probably just not worth it when we are already drawing them so many extra cards anyway.
The biggest upside would be that we also get to draw, so if each opponent just swings a 1/1 at it each turn, they'll each be drawing 1 card and we'll be drawing a total of 3, so there's that.
Its definitely a fun card to include and fits the friendly vibe of the deck so feel free to clude it in your lists! Just not sure its good enough for me for this list. :)

Glacial Fortress and Temple of Enlightenment are a nice budget replacements for Evolving Wilds depending on whether you want speed or scrying. Cancel is not a good replacement for Counterspell (there really isn't one if you think about it) because there are plenty of counters with the same converted mana cost that does more, i.e. Faerie Trickery//Dissipate, Disallow, Dissolve, Hinder (personal favorite), etc.. If you're looking for 2 mana counters I'd suggest Negate/Psychic Barrier (simple and to the point), Rune Snag (better with time), Remand, or Familiar's Ruse/Deprive. As far as a replacement for Shield Sphere goes, there are cheap defenders out there. While not at the same cost Wall of Omens and Wall of Denial does a fantastic job of keeping attackers at bay, you could also double up on Fog Bank with it's slightly bigger cousin Guard Gomazoa. Lightmine Field/Archangel of Tithes/Ghostly Prison also does a pretty good job of keeping attackers at bay. Hope this helps.

Hey, interesting start on a budget version of Kess.
Some cards to consider adding:
- Baleful Strix
- Gonti, Lord of Luxury
- Arcane Signet: at TCGPlayer can get it for less than $3.
- Izzet Signet
- Dimir Signet: can get it for less than $1.
- Rakdos Signet
- Crumbling Necropolis: Grixis Tri land.
- Shivan Reef: can get it for less than $1.
- Smoldering Marsh
- Grixis Panorama
- Opal Palace
- Dimir Aqueduct
- Izzet Boilerworks
- Rakdos Carnarium
Cards to consider cutting for these:
- Temple of the False God: it will not tap for mana until your fifth turn which is really bad.
- Vivid Marsh: when it runs out of two counters it can only tap for black.
- Dimir Guildgate
- Swiftwater Cliffs
- 4x Mountain
- Guard Gomazoa or Fog Bank
- Sage's Row Denizen
- Izzet Chronarch
- Mnemonic Wall
- Salvager of Secrets
- Possessed Skaab
Baleful Strix is a two drop who draws a card when it ETB, that way you can blink it with Deadeye to draw many cards. When you assemble Deadeye + Drake for infinite mana then being able to infinite blink a creature who draws can draw your win condition or draw and cast all cards in your deck. It's possible you could have a win condition already on the battlefield or in hand or graveyard with Kess, but if not then infinite blinking Strix lets you draw it.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be a win condition with Deadeye + Drake. It's not opponent mill, it's better, it's opponent exile their libraries and with infinite mana you get to cast all your opponent's cards. Arcane Signet , Izzet Signet, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet are some two drop mana rocks so you're not only relying on lands to have enough mana to cast cards.
I don't think you need to play so many creatures who recur an instant or sorcery because isn't that what Kess is for? That's the advantage of Kess, you get to cast an instant or sorcery from your graveyard on your turns, but once you resolve that spell is exiled. An exiled spell is no longer in your graveyard to recur to your hand. Archaeomancer is the only creature you want for this effect because you also have blink spells as well as Deadeye and creature recursion/reanimation spells for Archaeomancer.
Good luck with your deck.

Hi FounderX, I have considered Wonder and is actually in my unlisted maybe pile because of how easy it will be to place into my graveyard.
I don't think Fog Bank bank is a good fit for the deck because of how much I mill myself and how likely it is to end up as a dead card in my graveyard.
Ashes of the Fallen is a fun card card and a great way to recur some non-zombies. I will have to consider it. Thanks for the suggestions and upvote! Cheers
