Akroma, Angel of Fury Discussion
3 weeks ago
You are welcome to check out my Kaalia deck: Saints, Sinners, and Serpents, it's a little out of date and I've replaced some so-so "meh" cards with much better ones :) She's one of my favorite decks to play and I have some recommendations that I think would fit well with yours.
I would say to take out Disciple of Bolas, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Sire Of Insanity, and Demonlord Belzenlok. Personally I'm not a fan of these cards in Kaalia and I think there are far better options, IMO.
I would definitley add in: Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Akroma, Angel of Fury, Aurelia, the Warleader, and Platinum Angel in addition to other cards you're wanting to put in - those will buff your deck immensely. Personally, I'd try to fit them all in. I might take out Overseer of the Damned and Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, as well.
As for enchantments I'd also put in Fervor as another way to give Kaalia haste. Personally, I'm a big fan of Expedite to give her haste for one mana and draw a card. I'd consider investing in Land Tax or Weathered Wayfarer as ways to fix your land.
Let me know if this helps!!

I like the idea. Have you thought about including morphs such as Akroma, Angel of Fury or Sagu Mauler? You can play them for and then flicker them and they exile / return face up so you never need to play the morph cost.
Also, Eerie Interlude will let you flicker multiple things at once so could be useful.

I would reduce the average CMC of your deck by removing some of the big angels at the top of your curve. Also adding additional mana ramp to make sure you can play all your angels.
Deck Theme Questions: 1. Another big question is what is the theme that you're going for -- right now it is just tribal angels. I would add an additional subtheme like equipment or taxes to slow down to your opponent.
I would add more card draw and ramp for consistency, plus perhaps some equipment to buff up your angels: Add: - Vanquisher's Banner - Open the Armory - Sword of the Animist - Lightning Greaves - Swiftfoot Boots - Hedron Archive - Commander's Sphere - Mind's Eye - Emeria Shepherd - Loxodon Warhammer - Blackblade Reforged - True Conviction

My favorite angel is probably Avacyn, on account that Sorin is my favorite planeswalker so... But other than that I love Maelstrom Archangel or Akroma, Angel of Fury. I love Akroma's artwork but Maelstrom is a boss.

Appreciate the kind words, Atrabilogie! This has been one of my favorite personal decks to play, and one of the first decks I started building when I started playing the game back in 2013. Very happy to hear you like it as well!
I really like your idea of Momentary Blink in place of Cloudshift. I originally went with Cloudshift for the cost advantage, but I think you are right that the option for flashback makes Momentary Blink a better alternative in the long run. Ill have to try that out myself! There are some other pretty interesting spells like Ghostly Flicker that could be interesting to try as well.
Akroma, Angel of Fury is a recent new change for this deck. I found it being used in a similar deck, and thought I would give it a shot. The idea is really interesting- the way it works is that you play it as a 2/2 morph creature for 3. If you can blink/flicker it afterward, it actually returns to the battlefield face up as Akroma! So its a way of cheating Akroma into play without having to pay any red mana. It can be played as early as turn 4, and it is also extremely difficult for your opponent to get rid of it. All the traditional removal Modern spells (Fatal Push, Dismember, Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt) cannot take care of her. Youll never be able to pump Akroma, but even so it is makes for a very fast clock for your opponent. The downside is that once your opponent knows the trick, he/she will save their removal for the 2/2 morph creature before you can flip it, as it is a very fragile creature otherwise. But it is still a really neat card to play around with!
Against Mono Red Burn, Dragon's Claw is definitely one of the best sideboard cards against it, as well as Leyline of Sanctity. I do slightly prefer Lone Missionary and Kitchen Finks versus aggro & burn for better blinking/flickering synergy with the deck, but of course it is all your personal preference and meta!
Anyways, let me know how it goes with this deck, and best of luck to you in all your matches! :)

Since my first update had 0 effect on price, I'll post this as update 1.5 in which I'll swap out some low cost cards with similar, more effective, more expensive cards.
I often found myself using only toil for my own card draw. Enlightened tutor doesn't really give card advantage but it does make my next draw more efficient.
Shattered Angel tends to only help stall out while i wait for something bigger to come in to play. Effective at what it does but Balefire makes for a more efficient Aggro option.
I feel like cycle lands really only add the benefit of, well, cycling. As such, I'll be, ahem, cycling them out of the deck for card draw/tutor options. Liliana Vess is a card i fell in love with at first sight due to her versatility. +1 for card advantage, -2 to tutor, and ulti for game-winning recursion. She'll probably end up being just an eye-candy tutor, but if Kaalia is already out, any tutor can end up being 8-10 face damage.
This one might take some playtesting. Seeing as most 7+ drops are being cheated in with Kaalia, they can't be countered, so that part of Akroma is nigh useless. For the same CMC, Iona protects my entire board from one chosen color vs Akroma's personal protection from two pre-designated. My reason for making the swap overall is that turns 4-9 Iona makes a better cheat-in option than Akroma. Then again, Iona might be hated off the field immediately... we'll see.
Price Change: Approximately 3$ out and 50$ in. As of today, these cards are on order so I'll hold off changing the deck until they come in.
