In summation, I am having a hard time thinking of cards that would directly prolong your strategy with Kruphix, God of Horizons as a Permission deck....Seems like the wrong color pair to be enforcing it, as I believe Azorius is far superior in that regard; However, as far as Kruphix is involved, I think that cards like Prophet of Distortion would work well with him, although any Training Grounds or Biomancer's Familiar esque effects could make that better too! I think that a Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy would work well with dorks, and can also be a sink for that enourmous amounts of mana you can churn out with his activated ability! Let me know if that helps any!

Prophet of Distortion with Basalt Monolith can draw your entire deck and let you play all the Eldrazis. If you add in Crashing Drawbridge you can give them haste and win that turn. If the drawbridge also came out that turn Lightning Greavesor Swiftfoot Boots does the trick. It may seem like a lot of peices, but you only need 2 to draw the entire deck

@onerazorsharp: Your suggestions and tips are greatly welcome!
I think that Prismite / Gemstone Array are just bad cards on their own and won't do anything without infinite mana. Otherwise I think your recommendation of Staff of Domination could be slot into the deck easily but it's just an infinite mana outlet that we don't really need. We already have some outlets like Walking Ballista or Finale of Devastation. These are sufficient.
I decided against Vigean Graftmage + Incubation Druid. Mainly i think that you have to tutor for both combo pieces whereas the other combos most times only need one tutor spell. Also you have to consider that Vigean Graftmage is a dead card outside that specific combo setup and playing mostly dead cards is what has to be minimized.
In my current testing list I added Prophet of Distortion and I think it could be a great addition to the list.

2) With Basalt Monolith - what are your outlets for infinite colorless? I noticed right off the bat that you aren't running Staff of Domination or something like Prismite / Gemstone Array- might be worth considering. Walking Ballista & Thrasios, Triton Hero are in my setup as well, but as soon as Basalt Monolith hits the table with Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy you're going to need to make use of the colorless. I suppose it would depend on your Meta and how much interaction takes place, but in my playgroup it's a very short lived combo without an outlet immediately available.

I like the Prismite idea. Will keep it for another deck.

No. From Gatherer:
Training Grounds won’t affect the part of an activation cost represented by colored mana symbols or snow mana symbols. It also won’t affect nonmana parts of an activation cost, if there are any. (2010-06-15)
While this Gatherer entry was written when was not part of the game, it still represents a cost to be paid and it is not generic mana, which is the only type of mana affected by Training Grounds.
TLDR Colorness mana is not the same as generic mana.

For creatures with colorless mana symbols in their activation costs like Eldrazi Displacer or Prophet of Distortion can the reduction in cost from Training Grounds be used to "pay" for the colorless mana symbol? Thanks
