Might be a bit late, but for people still looking into Arcades decks i found that Umbral Mantle works great with multiple cards such as Overgrown Battlement, Axebane Guardian. The best combo i've managed to pull was with one of those and the Tree of Redemption, wonderful mana loop with creature and hp boost.

Umbral Mantle, Sword of the Paruns, Staff of Domination, Paradox Engine are my main kydele untaps.

Gemstone Array, Magus of the Candelabra are transform colourless into coloured mana.

Psychosis Crawler, Walking Ballista, Stroke of Genius, Fascination, Increasing Confusion, Helix Pinnacle are all game enders.

The rest are cards I figured would fit nicely or are extra mana generation in case Kydele can't get off the ground.

I think you're trying to push too many ideas here and so your deck feels jumbled. You have infinite mana on your commander, however you can't pay generic costs with said mana menaing that Umbral Mantle doesn't work here. You also have Freed from the Real meaning that the blue mana you do produce is going to be consumed in the generation portion of the loop (so you won't have it for things like card draw).

It also looks like your only real win conditions are Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and Praetor's Grasp (which you've only got one way to recur - tasigur).

You need to make sure you have a clear win condition, preferably with some sort of redundancy on each of the pieces. Also, just cramming all 10 talismans seems bad, especially since your commander can't pay for any of them. And Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper is not a good card, period.

Temur Sabertooth + Zacama, Primal Calamity works by repeatedly bouncing the Zacama to abuse the "untap all lands when it enters the battlefield" ability on Zacama. It will require 11 mana from lands to break even, or 12 mana from lands to create a positive infinite mana loop. With the very high land requirement, it is not a good inclusion for competitive edh unless Zacama is your commander.

I recommend looking at infinite combos in already existing cedh decks in those colors. Synergy has recommend some competitive level combos, but I can contribute some more. Off the top of my head, I can recommend some:

Temur Sabertooth + Dockside Extortionist = Generate infinite mana, requires opponent to have the correct board state, which they almost always do

Big Dork + Untap effect = Infinite mana. Look at Priest of Titania, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Bloom Tender, or Marwyn, the Nurturer for your big dork needs. Look at Umbral Mantle and Staff of Domination for your untapping needs, honorable mention to Sword of the Paruns which I don't recommend.

Underworld Breach has lots of great combos, most of the playable ones are in mono red for Naya colors. Shameless self plug, check out my EDH Underworld Breach combo guide here, I cover card choices and how to pilot the combos in detail here - https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/the-underworld-breach-edh-combo-guide/

Another option, but definitely not a top tier combo, is Boonweaver Giant + Pattern of Rebirth + Sac Outlet. This combo works by abusing creatures that return Boonweaver from the graveyard to play to continue pulling creatures from your library until you have assembled your actual winning combo. Generally you pull Karmic Guide -> return Boonweaver -> sac Boonweaver to fetch Fiend Hunter -> Fiend your Guide -> Sac Fiend to return Guide, which returns Boonweaver -> Fetch Reveillark which returns Guide + Fiend Hunter to loop to pull all creatures from your deck. You can find a very well detailed guide for this combo here - https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/commander-edh/multiplayer-commander-decklists/621075-karador-boonweaver-combo The guide is for Abzan colors, but the core of the combo is GW and can easily be adapted to Naya colors, especially with red creature sac outlets like Goblin Bombardment. This is a fun combo, high powered but not competitive, and will blow the minds of most players who haven't seen it in action before.

Heya Vintcient, thanks for the love :) much appreciated.

I think I would run the fastest infinites possible to get to infinite red mana, so that your finishing piece is Bosh. It feels good to have your inevitable kill ready in the command zone to go off and nothing able to stop it.

I would run the following infinite engines as a start, but probably add as many as I could (preferably 2 piece combos):

Metalworker + Umbral Mantle / Sword of the Paruns

Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth

After this you only need to get things such as Prismite, Stonework Packbeast, or any other mana filter are your third piece to finish it off with Bosh, Iron Golem.

Focussing on this single strategy I think offers to most consistent wins with Bosh, and frankly I am very curious about how strong it is, good luck building!

Hey, one advantage that this Nylea has as Commander is she's mana sink to get creatures into your hand because if you don't reveal a creature you can put that card into graveyard and look again. With infinite green mana you can find and cast all the creatures in your deck or just find a specific one, cast it and repeat on your turn. With Yeva, Nature's Herald you can cast creatures at instant speed and you can activate Nylea at instant speed.

This interaction is a combo to make infinite green mana. There needs to be minimum four green devotion for Karametra's Acolyte. Mystery Booster version of Umbral Mantle is $5 at TCGPlayer. Sword of the Paruns is slower than Mantle, because have to pay mana to equip it, but that's why it's less than $2. As long as Acolyte is equipped and can tap then you can make infinite green mana at instant speed which means you can do the combo on your last opponent's turn.

  1. Assemble the infinite mana combo.
  2. Using infinite mana activate Nylea until you get Yeva, Nature's Herald into your hand and end your turn.
  3. On last opponent's turn make infinite mana combo again.
  4. Flash in Yeva then activate Nylea to find and put all creatures into your hand.
  5. Cast all your creatures since they have flash from Yeva.
  6. On your next turn attack with all your creatures and Nylea.

Nylea puts cards that aren't creatures into your graveyard and you can advantage of this with green recursion. With infinite green mana Skullwinder + Temur Sabertooth can recur all cards in your graveyard that Nylea put there. Eternal Witness is a better Skullwinder, but more expensive price. Sabertooth can also give you infinite ETB triggers of a creature such as Acidic Slime to destroy all your opponents lands which can be game winning.

If you're interested in these suggestions I offer more advice to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.
