Over 30 goldfish play tests the deck averaged a winning board state by turn 6.27 on average. The fastest time to a winning board state was turn 4, while the slowest was turn 10. Removing the extrema brings the average time to a winning board state to turn 6.21. The mode of the sample was 5, while the median was 5.5.

The general strategy is crazy ramping or going infinite with mana and using Kinnan's ability to put creatures into play. Triumph of the Hordes and Blightsteel bring infect as an alternative win condition (or at least knock one person out).

This is NOT technically a cEDH deck, but it can often hold its own against a pod of cEDH decks. Since this deck is in the awkward position between cEDH and casual I would likely give it a 8.5/10 for power level. If you brought the land count to 30, and replaced those lands with moxen and mana crypt and then also replaced the expensive tutors with cheap tutors and the eldrazi with lab maniac/thassa you could likely raise the power level to 9/10. The maybeboard contains substitutions to bring the deck to the aforementioned cEDH level.

To reduce the power level you can take out the infinite mana combos like Basalt Monolith + Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy , Freed from the Real + Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy or Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy + Pemmin's Aura and a mana dork. Replacing Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , It That Betrays , Blightsteel Colossus , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Seedborn Muse , Craterhoof Behemoth and Walking Ballista with creatures with a lower level of mean also makes the deck play a bit more nice. Lastly, if tutors are unacceptable for the playgroup you can swap out Sylvan Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Tooth and Nail , and Green Sun's Zenith for other cards as well.
