Kruphix, God of Horizons

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 unused mana would empty from your mana pool, that mana becomes colorless instead.

Kruphix, God of Horizons Discussion
3 days ago
First of all; lore wise: He's a Goddamn Primordial God! Older than even Heliod, God of the Sun ; who is like a King of the Gods for the Plane of Theros; but Kruphix knows more outside of Theros than all its other Gods. He even knew of the Eldrazi's Existence, & that not even all 5 Major Gods & 10 (9 if you count that has no God.) Minor Gods's overall combined power can even effect Ulamog ; who is the Weakest of the 3 Titans. He's also one of my favorite Simic Cards of all time; & I'll mention why...
...Now. He's Indestructible; he's not that hard to cast from the Command Zone, any leftover Mana that would empty from the Mana Pool is retained, & converted to mana, which can be used freely so as long as Kruphix, God of Horizons is in play; in which, you kinda need to Exile him to destroy the Mana Reserve. Oh, & did I also mention HE'S A GODDAMN RELIQUARY TOWER ON LEGS!
I dunno if you get this theme in mind, but: is a big factor in this deck; most notably in the use of Mana Ramp & Card Draw. There are several ways to Ramp for a HUGE number of Mana. Heck, Card Advantage isn't the only thing that benefits from Costed Stuff. This deck uses Creature Advantage by Pumping all that into an cost for a Myriad of abilities; be it a Mana Cost, or even a cost for an effect that requires it; sometimes effects.
Sorry, but I'm not making Chulane anytime soon. Kruphix stays. & I just want some suggestions or cuts from this deck please. Any other ideas? I'll be waiting...

Bababad Thanks!! I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my list!! I have felt with my play through of this that I have felt like using Derevi, Empyrial Tactician but I feel that her popularity will get me hated out of the game out of principle! So that’s why I run jenara, though there have been some shitty cards that just seem VERY lackluster, Vanquisher's Banner Herald's Horn seem to be very good, but in practice aren't as good as you may think! I also think that I have a lot of ramp cards that I never really see,especially after having 10 whole dedicated ramp cards! And cards like Sephara, Sky's Blade seem kinda ‘win-more’ and the one time I had her out on the battlefield I had another angel that was an indestructible, and couldn’t black with sephara, so a lot of damage went through, so I think she’s a bust.
With learning how this original list works, I feel that I need to add some better and more value focused cards, such as Wood Elves , Sun Titan , Stonecloaker come to mind. And I’m actually going to add Mystic Confluence and the masterpiece Cryptic Command to the list here. I think cards like the elves and such will do me better than all the sorcery spells that I have currently. I also think I’m going to add in either Ephara, God of the Polis and/or Kruphix, God of Horizons / Karametra, God of Harvests as they might make a fit here. Most likely when my cards come in I’m going to swap the Vanquisher's Banner for Ephara, God of the Polis will do me much better than a +1/+1 effect.
Overall this deck needs a lot more fine-tuning and alterations before I’m turkey happy with it. As I feel I just added in too many lack-luster instants and sorcories and should put those slots for more impactful and long-term value/recursion engine(s). But once my new cards come in, I’ll defiantly update this list and see what you think!!

Side lore: Heliod killed Elspeth because he was scared of her. She proclaimed of worlds beyond Theros, to which Heliod rejected. If worlds outside his own existed, it would prove him to not be all-powerful and all-knowing. In order to silence her heresy and protect his position among the Pantheon, he killed her with Godsend .
As for where the original Gruul God went, this is answered by Kruphix, God of Horizons . He is the oldest and wisest God. He is also the most powerful. His power extends to the edges of Theros, allowing him to peer into other Planes of existence. Kruphix recognizes that other world's exist, and that certain beings can transverse them at will. He knew Elspeth was one of these beings, and he knows Heliod is not all-powerful. He only holds such a position because he is lavished by the mortals.
The way power works in Theros is the more you are praised, the stronger your influence becomes. This is represented in the mechanic Devotion . Heliod, being the "Sun God" is worshipped, if not at least recognized as legitimate, by ALL beings. Thus, he has the most raw power, despite not being the oldest or wisest.
As for the Gruul God, we know nothing about it other than it merely "left".
If we look at the rise of Xenagos, it can be clearly recognized that the maniac and hedonistic lifestyle caused them to abandon their God as they saw it as orderly. Without worship, the God would fade from existence.
Xenagos, being literally born out of bloodshed (he killed his own twin sister while still in the womb), he naturally sought no degree of order. As such, those in the Gruul sphere saw him as their true leader; a savior from the shackles of society. This is how and why we went from becoming a Planeswalker to a literal God, unlike Bolas , who merely pretended to be one.
With Xenagos killed and Elspeth proclaiming Heliod to not be all-powerful, he had no choice (In his mind) but to silence her.
However, as I have long speculated on here, her spark would prevent her death. On Theros, the underworld is a very real part of existence where you can legitimately go to if you know how to get there.

Don't forget about Cold-Eyed Selkie . Draw 7 is backbreaking and islandwalk is actually fairly relevant. Also my new finds have been anything that copies itself on attack or combat damage like Spawnwrithe or Nacatl War-Pride or myriad creatures.
I think Isareth the Awakener is also a cute way to get back a critical creature from the yard in the combat step.
Kruphix, God of Horizons also does work since this deck will be pretty mana hungry once volrath is on the field and it grants additional protection for volrath.

Staizer - Get ready for a long response:
I did look at the same list as you did, but as a longtime morph player, this deck is a disappointment. I've already made my thoughts on Kadena clear so I'll make that response short.
A bland Sultai value engine that brings nothing new to the table. She isn't a bad card by any means, but she doesn't address any of morph's biggest weaknesses. I'd still play Animar, Soul of Elements , Kruphix, God of Horizons , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , and maybe even the new Bant brawl commander over her.
The choice of morph/manifest related reprints
Some fine inclusions. Ixidron , Stratus Dancer , and Vesuvan Shapeshifter are nice, but they chose to exclude most of the best morph/manifest related cards: Dream Chisel , Ixidor, Reality Sculptor , Whisperwood Elemental , Riptide Entrancer , Voidmage Prodigy , Voidmage Apprentice , Aphetto Runecaster , Primordial Mist , Obscuring AEther , Unblinking Bleb , Weaver of Lies , Brine Elemental (though this one actually makes sense), and even Backslide . I would never expect all or even most of those to make it into the deck, but a couple would've been nice and would've made more sense than something like Deathmist Raptor or Silumgar Assassin .
Only Scroll of Fate and Kadena's Silencer are worth mentioning here. I know I sound like a broken record, but none of the new cards help address the issues facing morph: speed and the fact that morph is a value based mechanic that requires a massive mana investment. Morph will always be a casual mechanic, but it needs something that reduces the cost of triggering morph, or something that allows for multiple activations (my hope was for repeatable Backslide effects). Neither of those issues were addressed by the new cards in this deck. I would've been happy with just 1 card that helps in that way...1 card.
Is this a good pre-con for new players? Yes. Does it have value? Yes, though most of the value cards are only that way due to scarcity. I think many will end up tanking in price. Will it win games against the other pre-cons? Probably. Will it win games against even 60% decks? Unlikely.
So is it a good pre-con and I am being extra critical? Maybe, but this mechanic has had a special place in my heart for a very long time (Morph was first introduced when I was a little kid and just starting out playing Magic). I was excited to see morph finally get some needed reprints and support. Instead the new cards aren't that inspiring and the reprints honestly look like they just pulled up Gatherer, typed in "morph", and then picked some of the first things that they found.

NOBODY OUTBUMPS- (Looks at a panel of Mighty Atom) OH MY F---ING GOD! OSAMU TEZUKA-sama!!! WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DRAW!!?
SPOILER: Ol Atom apparently was being treated like a damn gas station. Jeez, being Politically Incorrect has to be World Law back in 195?...
@SP3CTR3_chelts: Well, I dunno what else to believe; I finished an "Exile Matters" Concept Deck. I finished a Kruphix, God of Horizons deck, that new spoiler from Throne of Eldraine is going to pump up my Human Tribal Deck better than Adun Oakenshield would as a Legend. I still have 3 decks to finish; A Bant Enchantress Deck with a choice of One of Two Commanders, Mono- Burn on a level higher than one can believe the possibility, Xantcha, Sleeper Agent Politics Deck, & now; this. I still have 4 decklists to complete.
So I'll ask again: Do you have any ideas for adds or cuts, or as Jotaro Kujo would say: "Well? Do you bet or not? Let's hear you say it loud and clear, D'Arby!" God, I love my JoJo; One of my favorite quotes from Stardust Crusaders. Unfortunate we never were able to know Jotaro's hand when D'Arby has 4 Kings. But back to the deck; I'd really appreciate an idea for an add or a cut. If you are exhausted from all this like so many already are; I dunno who else can help; nobody wants to help w/ Xantcha Politics matters, much less a "Semi-Comptitive" Burn deck. I can handle Bant Enchantress, but I need more creatures in Bant colors that benefit as mere Mono Color; & just wipes them out. I really don't want to act like a Bancho-School Uniform sporting badass that the "Bishoujo-Possible" Schoolgirls DO like. After all, I'm nothing but a damn failure; even at trying to get help; & pusing it to a level beyond their potential. Is this one of Grixis' Personality traits? (& yes. It may seem strange, but I am of overall colors.) Well, do you have any fight left? :/
