Chroma — Primalcrux's power and toughness are each equal to the number of green mana symbols in the mana costs of permanents you control.

Now compare to Overlord here

When Abhorrent Overlord enters the battlefield, put a number of 1/1 black Harpy creature tokens with flying onto the battlefield equal to your devotion to black. (Each B in the mana costs of permanents you control counts towards your devotion to black.)

Seems like thats the case to me.
and here we thought the revived mechanic would be something like bushido or totem armor that seemed directly tied to the mechanical themes of legends and enchantments.  It's tied to the flavor theme of gods in a way that is only obvious after it is explained.

All mechanics are kicker.

Exactly, that's why this is a post-casting Kicker.

Is first strike kicker?



Yes, because you tend to pay more mana for a creature with first strike.

Obviously it's not exactly kicker. Devotion isn't exactly Chroma, either. 

Bro, do you even Autocard?

Autocarding: [c]Cryptic Command[/c] = Cryptic Command

Showing somebody how to autocard: [c[b][/b]]Cryptic Command[/c] = [c]Cryptic Command[/c] = Cryptic Command
