Kruphix Control help

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Oct. 21, 2020, 12:54 a.m. by Omniscience_is_life


This forum is to solicit help on a deck I'm working on, a Kruphix, God of Horizons control build on a very loose budget (basically, don't push Force of Will).

Deck link here--

BASICally, the goal of the deck is to generate an absolutely unnecessary excess of resources, namely cards and mana, and then keep my opponent from trying to do the same... with big fancy X-spell permission spells! I'm short about a billion cards right now, so don't be shy with suggestions :)

Win-cons at the moment: (willing to change) Walking Ballista, Helix Pinnacle.

Also: I know I COULD make the deck more powerful by changing the strategy up a little, but PLEASE don't suggest ways to "improve" the strategy--this doesn't need to be a cEDH Control deck. Thanks!

I am running a low cost turbo fog,counter spell with lots of x spells and walking Ballista could slot right in my version of the deck. I am linking the deck maybe it will help you with some ideas Kruphix {X}

Kruphix says "ni" in your general direction

Is your primary ramp goingto be coming from fetching additional lands or from rocks/dorks (not that you can't have both)? This will give you a bit of an idea about filling out the ramp portion of the deck.

For any permission based deck, having repeatable card draw is super important. Cards like Mystic Archaeologist and Whispers of the Muse will be good for sinking lots of mana into. You may also want to look into cards like Prismite to help you convert the stored colourless mana back into coloured mana.

Seedborn Muse seems like an absolute must for this strategy.

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!

Staff of Domination and Chromatic Orrery could help as well!

Ghostly Flicker, when combined with either Naru Meha, Master Wizard or Archaeomancer+Peregrine Drake, will generate infinite mana. You can store that mana to use at your leisure.

Appreciate it, but I'm not looking for infinite combos at the moment. Not that I clearly mentioned that, so no worries :)
