Prophet of Distortion Discussion

For the Stompy version I would start by cutting Ruination Guide, Pitiless Plunderer, Sifter of Skulls, Blight Herder, Brood Butcher, Emrakrul’s Hatcher, Catacomb Sifter, Drowner of Hope, Awakening Zone, Etchings of the Chosen, Eyeless Watcher.
If you put in Rings of Brighthearth it combos with Basalt Monolith to make infinite mna. Both Monolith and Rings are 3 CmC and artifacts so they are tutorable with the same tutors you have in here for Fist of Suns. With infinite colourless mana Dimensional Infiltrator will be able to exile your opponents libraries, Essence Depleter can drain out the table, and Prophet of Distortion will let you draw your library. Rings doesn't have a lot of synergy with other cards in your list BUT if Golos was your commander it has a seriously powerful ability that would be awesome to copy.
Eternal Scourge + Food Chain is another combo you can consider which will make infinite COLOURED mana for creature spells and have infinite EtB and LtB triggers so this will end a game with Flayer Drone or Vela the Night-Clad in play. If you wanted to abuse the mana you would need Cloudstone Curio or a non-eldrazi bouncing creature as all the eldrazi bouncers are processors and it is unlikely your opponents will have an infinite pile of exiled cards.
I suggest adding in Pathrazer of Ulamog , Barrage Tyrant , World Breaker , Dread Defiler , Endless One , Not of This World , Rapacious One , Reality Smasher , Thought-Knot Seer , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Ulamog's Crusher , & Vile Redeemer as suitable eldrazi stompy options. Barrage Tyrant and Dread Defiler get a special mention because Fling is an amazing effect that can give you the reach you need to close out a game or off a player hiding behind a pillowfort.
Here is a list of support cards off the top of my head: Sarkhan's Unsealing , Temur Ascendancy , Commander's Plate , Mana Maze , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Rampant Growth , Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Everflowing Chalice , Thran Dynamo , Rishkar's Expertise , Return of the Wildspeaker , Garruk's Uprising , Hunting Grounds , Sneak Attack , Animar, Soul of Elements , Mana Geyser , Mirari's Wake , Ugin, the Ineffable , Show and Tell , Terror of the Peaks , Warstorm Surge , Alena, Kessig Trapper , Ilysian Caryatid , Momentous Fall , Greater Good , Sacellum Godspeaker , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , The Great Henge , Eldritch Evolution , Energy Tap .

I feel like Metallic Mimic needs to come out there are so many better options like Prophet of Distortion I would also replace Sylvan Safekeeper with Force of Negation just personal choice on my end I dont know the meta you play in

Building off of Ancient Stirrings, do you want this deck to remain completely colorless? Adding some color will help you drop the average mana cost. and have the most options for low-cost Eldrazi like Bearer of Silence or Prophet of Distortion, but and have good stuff, too.
Eldrazi Tron is the most competitive Eldrazi-based deck, and this is in the same line as those tournament decks. (Eldrazi and Taxes is also up there, but that deck doesn't really focus on the tribal side.) Check some of those out for inspiration.
Hope this helps!

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.
