Immolating Gyre deals X damage to each creature and planeswalker you don’t control, where X is the number of instant and sorcery cards in your graveyard.

Thank you KBK7101, I appreciate! I haven't had a chance to play the deck irl yet, but it's ready to go next time my friends and I get together. I could see Immolating Gyre replacing Jaya's Immolating Inferno, especially since it can hit creatures and opponents simultaneously.
I'll be making my next batch of significant updates after getting some games in, and probably once Commander Legends 2 is dropped. Keeping an eye out for any spells from the set that could fit this build.

I wasn't super high on New Capenna as a whole, but I have to admit that Anhelo looks pretty awesome. This deck is really well constructed, too, as most of my recommendations I had ended up already being the deck. Bravo!
The only thing I think I'd recommend is Immolating Gyre. A nice boardwipe for spellslinger decks that could work really well here.

I think Spelltwine doesn't work with your commander, because you are copying the cards and casting them instead of copying the spell. If that's right than Mizzix's Mastery and Arcane Bombardment also wouldn't work, sadly. Maybe they are good enough to keep anyway? Not sure. Cards with the Cipher mechanic are also so close to working but I don't think they do. This is actually kind of hard to brew around! Ugh, God-Eternal Kefnet wouldn't work either, ew.
Immolating Gyre and Volcanic Vision are really good boardwipes in a spells-y deck... as is Cyclonic Rift, which you definitely should still run. In fact, all the overload spells are pretty sweet here, since they only target things you don't control, so if you copy them opponent's can't even pay the 4 life to hit one of your things. Makes Vandalblast and friends possibly worth it.
It will be interesting to see if Lithoform Engine or Pyromancer's Goggles will be good enough here (I like Primal Amulet Flip). Maybe more spells that copy spells are better than these chunkier repeatable ones? Things like Galvanic Iteration or Reiterate if you like the buyback better. Or Increasing Vengeance for the beefier flashback. Hell, if its politics Bonus Round could be really fun. Chef's Kiss is a newer one that I forgot about
Maybe this is the kind of deck where Thrilling Encore shines?
Is Stunning Reversal here to try and copy and save other people with?? Seems like it may not be good enough when you have access to blue for card draw/protection anyway.
I wish, as I always do, that Cloven Casting wasn't soooo bad. Or like, any of the cards with Replicate. Those would be so perfect. Maybe Shattering Spree is good enough but I think it isn't. Ugh, that makes me think about how you're definitely supposed to play storm cards in this deck. Are there any storm cards that aren't miserable? Mind's Desire maybe...
Is Charmbreaker Devils good enough?
Wild Ricochet is an oldie but maybe enough of a goodie here with the copying theme?
Harmonic Prodigy since your commander is a wizard isn't a terrible idea...
Humble Defector might be too cute.
Cruel Ultimatum is the ultimate chunky spell and you're even in the right colors for it!
Also Chaos Warp is still good enough as universal instant speed removal and kind of fun/politics-y as well

As someone who has a Kykar deck, I'd definitely recommend cutting some lands and adding some more artifact ramp such as Boros Signet, Azorius Signet, Izzet Signet and Mind Stone. Casting these will trigger Kykar, netting you a spirit token and helping to ramp you further ahead. I'd try and stick somewhere around 33-34 lands.
Other cards I'd recommend are Murmuring Mystic as another flying token producer, Jubilant Skybonder to help keep the heat off your fliers, Boros Charm for anti-boardwipe protection, Whirlwind of Thought for some more card draw and Immolating Gyre as a one-sided board wipe. Raugrin Triome is probably also worth a look.
Kykar is a super cool commander and I wish he had more lore. I really wanna know what plane he's from so I can tweak my basic land art accordingly. lol

To get the deck count down to 100, here are the cards to remove: Verity Circle, Future Sight, Elsha of the Infinite, Ashnod's Altar, Spell Pierce, Ground Rift. For one reason or the other, they're all not impressive enough for this deck.
Bident of Thassa- Reconnaissance Mission
Feather, the Redeemed- Windfall (Or whatever wheel you like better)
Flame Sweep- Immolating Gyre (Not sure about this one, but seems better)
Dramatic Reversal- Negate
Abrade- Boros Charm
If Enlightened Tutor isn't necessary for your deck, you may want to try Spirit Bonds , as having a permanent way to give kykar indestructible is nice.
Overall, I'd be very aware of what colors your spells cost. Kykar only makes Red mana, and many of your spells cost 1 colored mana. Maybe skew more heavily towards Red, but that's not a hard and fast rule.

Hey, good version of Kalamax.
32 lands is low especially when you're trying to get to nine mana for Chord to combo with Kiki. My advice is add more lands or more two drop mana rocks or both. Arcane Signet and Fellwar Stone are mana rock options, they could replace Docent of Perfection Flip and Mizzix of the Izmagnus. This can help to reduce the avg. CMC and improve ramp. Docent is not as good, much slower, than Talrand/Murmuring and your not going to gaining very many experience counters from Mizzix since you have mostly low CMC instant/sorceries. Invigorating Surge, Refuse / Cooperate, Rapid Hybridization and Sublime Epiphany are options to cut to add more lands.
With a budget of $600+ could make some upgrades to the manabase. Lands such as Rupture Spire, Gain lands (Rugged Highlands), Scry lands (Temple of Mystery) are for low budget decks and Fast lands (Spirebluff Canal) will more times than not ETB tapped. I'm not a fan of Fast lands in Commander because as one ofs the consistency of having one in your opening hand or drawing one before turn three is too low.
Kalamax being a four drop also makes Fast lands not good if it's your turn four land drop then it makes it more difficult to cast Kalamax. Fast lands, Gain Lands, Scry lands and other lands that ETB tapped don't go well with Bounce lands (Simic Growth Chamber) together in the same manabase since having to bounce a Fast land sets you back even more for mana. Bounce lands also ETB tapped, but they're better at making mana/color fixing and with Seedborn/Reclamation.
Some lands to consider adding:
- 2x Island
- Exotic Orchard
- Stomping Ground
- Steam Vents
- Shivan Reef
- Yavimaya Coast
- Sulfur Falls
- Hinterland Harbor
- Rootbound Crag
There's several cards in the sideboard that are better than cards in the main deck. Reverberate and Twincast are more two drop Forks that combo with Kalamax and Ral as the win condition. They're better cards than Invigorating Surge and Refuse / Cooperate. Chandra's Ignition is better than Immolating Gyre especially if you add more Forks to the main deck. Ways to give Kalamax infinite power which makes Ignition a win condition. Dig Through Time is better than Thassa's Intervention since you only have to pay for delve once.
I offer more advice, would you like more advice?
Good luck with your deck.
