Love the Kormus Bell / Urborg / Toxrill Combo, what a blowout! <3 Rampwise I am missing Mana Vault in here. Since Jeweled Lotus and Mana Crypt seem to be in your budget, why not?

I always try to reply whenever you post a comment/reply back, life circumstances permitting. Options for you include....

  1. Night's Whisper - Another sign in blood, although you can't target your opponent with it (I actually use it as a wincon in my mono black deck, Necro + Profane Transfusion + Sign in blood, lmao)
  2. Syphon Mind - Costly to cast but draw 3 each opponent discard one is nice. Also 3 generic mana is nice to cast more devotion heavy cards (like sign in blood)
  3. All Is Dust - Idk the ruling with Tegrid but I'm assuming it works like Meren, it see's everything dying so you get back all the things sacrificed. Moreover, this acts as another way to interact with enchantments (notably, rest in peace which destroys your deck as it exiles graves). I know it's expensive in CMC and $ but worth it if you find yourself troubled against pesky enchantments you can't interact with or if you just want another wipe. While it's not low to the ground as you wanted, its still something to take under serious consideration.
  4. Mana Vault - Could sub for moxdiamond. Idk if you want this or if your deck needs it, but Turn 2 Tegrid can make people afraid....very afraid, cue evil laughter
  5. Cavern of Souls - I see you run boseju but no cavern? How much blue is in your meta? I know your commander is your only G-d type, but it could also work for humans if needed. Its not needed of course, but I would hate for my commander-centric deck to be without a commander, you know?

Hey, interesting version with Dark Suspicions like effects.

Consider cutting some of the lesser sea monsters for more ramp and some more setup for Runo?

Isleback Spawn and Inkwell Leviathan have shroud which prevents them from being targeted by Krothuss to be copied. Lorthos, the Tidemaker, Tromokratis, Charix, the Raging Isle are legendary and copies of them don't give you any value when they're created thus you don't really want to copy them. Even with Sakashima of a Thousand Faces you have better legendary sea monsters here and Krothuss is really the target to be copying when you control Sakashima.

Since not playing any 1/1 creatures then Heartless Summoning is good ramp for sea monsters. Having lots of high CMC sea monsters stuck in your hand/unable to be cast can be a problem. Brainstorm, Frantic Search and Windfall can help when this happens and to setup Runo. Scroll Rack is more expensive price, but has a really helpful repeatable effect.

Another reason other than ramp to add more two drop mana rocks as well as Everflowing Chalice is to have more chances to combo with Hullbreaker Horror + Sol Ring. Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Mox Amber (when you control Krothuss or Runo) are more expensive price mana rocks that combo with Hullbreaker.

Good luck with your deck.

Probably worth swapping Mana Vault w/ Firemind Vessel. We need color and MV kinda sucks.

I love the original sets, with their painted and somewhat ancient look (especially with today’s standards)! Will-o'-the-Wisp is a good example of this, as is the original Mana Vault. Art like that still makes me feel like the cards themselves are ancient artifacts uncovered in an archaic dig site. I miss that old look. There was a Nicol Bolas Card from the War of the Spark set that had some of that feel, so the vibe isn’t gone!

Artifact acceleration is great for theme, though there are some pretty theme-ey spells. Creature acceleration can be cool as well! Few things take me back to the 90’s better than a Mana Vault though... so I guess that’s my vote.

Your Brogo list looks like a good start. In my opinion the biggest thing that could improve your list is to run more mana rocks. Make sure the ones you run come in untapped as you can then blink them with Brogo for extra value to play more spells on second main or hold up interaction for opponents turns.

Start with Arcane Signet, Azorius Signet, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, and Thran Dynamo.

If your budget allows for it Talisman of Progress, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt and Grim Monolith.

Next I would consider running a few more low CMC interaction spells like Counterspell, Delay, Path to Exile, Negate, and Arcane Denial.

I hope that helps with your build. Good luck!
