Kruphix, God of Horizons - 3GU
Legendary Enchantment Creature - God (Mythic Rare)
As long as your devotion to green and blue is less than seven, Kruphix isn't a creature.
You have no maximum hand size.
If unused mana would empty from your mana pool, that mana becomes colorless instead.

Abusing Kruphix, God of Horizons takes much more thought than several of the other gods we've see throughout the "Theros" block. With Ephara, Erebos, Karametra, Mogis, Xenagos and the rest of the previous gods building a deck around them to take advantage of the boons you gain are pretty much self explanatory. That isn't exactly the case with Kruphix, God of Horizons.

Having no maximum hand size is an ability that's as old as the game, an ability that was featured on Library of Leng and more recently on Reliquary Tower. Extracting maximum value out of this benefit means first means you'll need to draw lots of cards. In Standard there's lots of options from Urban Evolution to Sphinx's Revelation. Looking back at eternal formats, one way to glean additional value is to use symmetrical cards such as Well of Knowledge, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Otherworld Atlas, and Prosperity that'll force your opponent to draw as well - except they'll only be able to keep seven cards while you'll get them all.

Now that you've go all these cards in your hand you'll be able to gain massive amounts of life with Ivory Tower, pump creatures to impressive heights with Empyrial Plate, and make fervent use of every other card that refers to the number of cards in your hand.

The second ability Kruphix, God of Horizons lets you save mana from turn to turn, although it'll transform it into colorless mana. One neat trick is to use Doubling Cube to quickly soar to an astounding amount of mana, and from there take advantage of activated abilities on your permanents or cast a ton of cards from your hand.

Kruphix, God of Horizons is certainly a "build around me" card that'll find a home in many Commander decks, perhaps even yours.

How will you use Kruphix, God of Horizons?
