Kruphix, God of Horizons
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to green and blue is less than seven, Kruphix isn't a creature.
You have no maximum hand size.
If you would lose unspent mana, that mana becomes colorless instead.

Say I control Kruphix, God of Horizons.
I tap the following:
- Castle Garenbrig for it's second ability
- A snow land
- A treasure
On a following turn, do their restrictions/typing still apply? (ie can I only spend the 6 colorless on creatures, is one of the colorless considered snow mana, and is one of the colorless still treasure mana?)

Glad to be of help! It was late and I realized after I suggested still a few things you had already included but by a later point couldn't go back to edit them. I admit I never got into asking some questions perhaps on the exact power level or anything like that but I get why you might not wish to add some of these. I use all the ones named regarding that self-mill strategy (Laboratory Maniac etc) in a Kruphix, God of Horizons deck I have which is capable of some explosive plays when I start generating ridiculous amounts of mana and or cast something like Omniscience with ways to draw a crazy amount of cards. But it also plays a bunch of big creatures like the Eldrazi if I want to win in a more straightforward, combat-focused way. I get the appeal of wanting to build up a big boardstate, and Simic colours are great for that.
I'll also just say that I started Magic back in approx 2013 and was the colour pair I fell in love with for deckbuilding and during my first little while with the game me and some friends played at a pretty casual level too. In fact, before I even knew much of anything about all the various formats, I played a Simic deck which was like 80 cards filled with stuff like an Arcanis the Omnipotent with multiple ways to untap it and some other things with useful activated abilities, a playset of Roil Elementals which I protected with counterspells and Archetype of Endurance (they were fun to use alongside Explosive Vegetation and similar effects), Lifeblood Hydra, Horizon Chimera were others, and finally some goodies like Prophet of Kruphix (rip its commander banning) and later additions like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.
Some of this became a Vorel of the Hull Clade commander deck for a while, but I still really always liked the theme of lands early on which is why I made a Lord Windgrace deck and now most recently an Omnath, Locus of Creation deck.
And having a lot of lands can be made to work, it's for one thing unfortunate that many of the cards in this theme which allow you to play extra lands from hand or graveyard are so costly even despite some reprints so there were a lot of ideas I skipped suggesting. I still think you should keep an eye out for Ramunap Excavator if you have a good chance to acquire one because you do have a significant number of lands which either can be sacrificed, cycled, or in some way become a creature and at some point die, so having another way to earn a few more back could be useful outside of World Shaper, Splendid Reclamation, and The Mending of Dominaria which I see is nonetheless your general gameplan.
Some of my decks which can be seen on my profile are complete / nearly fully owned, but yet others I build them how I want them to be eventually a little later and I definitely get wanting to make choices that are budget friendly with myself still as a student. I have for one thing been smart or simply gotten lucky and picked up a lot of cards from buying/trades when they were either cheap / reprinted over the years which has made a few of my decks creep up in price now (my best example of this was acquiring a Sliver Queen for $100 CAD worth of trades (approx $76 US) like five years ago. Anyway, if I do think of more stuff which could be of use here I'll let you know btw!

Well, Niv is copied upon ETB, not cast.
So Niv sits on the stack while you Cascade into one of the others.
I actually added Maelstrom Wanderer during my last upgrade to test the waters with it. But your idea likely is a bit more stable.
I was actually thinking of adding Kruphix, God of Horizons to hold onto the mana from Savage Ventmaw and Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient as well as just generally pooling unused mana. Even considered Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy to bypass the whole draw, cast and mana issues. Getting 7+ mana is easy. Getting something to use it on? Eh not so much.

Oh I also recommend Kruphix, God of Horizons. Cant recommended this guy enough for high cost decks.

Draconino I have toyed with Spawnsire of Ulamog, but since I don't rule zero the sideboard in my groups, it loses some of it's charm. I actually find that it's very rare for Kruphix, God of Horizons to be removed, so while Horizon Stone is very good, would eat up a card slot. Sea Gate Restoration Flip on the other hand is absolutely something I am looking to add to the deck since the cost to play it is very minimal.

Changes, 18 Jan 2022: -1 Upwelling, +1 War Tax. After some consideration, I think the "mana doesn't empty" effect is something I'm gonna want to keep to myself, rather than give the whole table. So, after acquiring a copy of War Tax, essentially Rite of Replication is taking Upwelling's slot. That is definitely an effect I'm going to want, so I'm probably gonna try to find a slot for Horizon Stone in the near future as well. As far as I know, that and Kruphix, God of Horizons are the only cards that carry that effect, so I'm also probably gonna find some slots for various tutors (Namely Enlightened, Idyllic, and Worldly) that can find those cards - not to mention a variety of other things I might want, depending on game situation - in the near future.

I need some help figuring out what changes I should make to my decks. I have a deck of every color combo (and more than one of a few color combos) and I've been unhappy with my current Atraxa superfriends deck. I've decided to build a Kethis, the Hidden Hand superfriends build as a replacement. So I need a new deck covering the Witch-Maw colors.
I've got two ideas for that deck:
I build an Atraxa deck focusing on alternate win conditions like Darksteel Reactor and Biovisionary. I'd really try to jam in as many alternate win conditions as possible, even ones that would be really difficult to pull off in a four color deck like Happily Ever After.
I build a +1/+1 counters deck with Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan. I currently have a +1/+1 counters deck with Ezuri, Claw of Progress at the helm and I'd have to disassemble that deck to build a four color version. My Ezuri deck is solid, but a bit linear.
If I take the second path I'd then want to convert my Ezuri deck into something else. I have a Simic Eldrazi deck piloted by Kruphix, God of Horizons, so I'd be looking for something fun and silly. I have two ideas for Simic decks:
A turbo-fog deck piloted by Rashmi, Eternities Crafter. You don't see a lot of turbo-fog in EDH so this would be kind of unique. I am having trouble finding a good win condition aside from Darksteel Reactor though.
A zoologist themed Lonis, Cryptozoologist deck where every creature would have a unique type. So since Lonis is a snake elf scout, that means no snakes, elves or scouts. The win-con of that deck would just be to see how many different creature types I could get on the board at once. I think I'd try to throw as many cards that investigated in as well.
I have or could get most of the cards I'd need, though I would want to stay fairly budget for anything I'd need to pick up. I'd really appreciate any advice on which route I should take:
- Build an alt-win con Atraxa deck.
- Build Ishai/Reyhan +1/+1 counters and a Rashmi turbo-fog deck.
- Build Ishai/Reyhan +1/+1 counters and a themed Lonis deck.
- Something else?
