You should just play 4 wrath of god instead of the day of judgements. It's the same cost but makes them not able to be regenerated. The quarantine field is too slow, maybe change it for something like Cast Out or Ixalan's Binding. The akroma should be a sideboard because otherwise it's too slow and doesn't do much, in it's place I would go up a Gisela. I would go down a ghostly prison and then go up another oblivion ring. Fumigate is another good board clear, allowing you to gain life as well. I would switch out the Avacyn, angel of hope, for Avacyn, the Purifier. It costs less and has flash with basically the same mechanic. Celestial Flare is another great way to get around hexproof. The thalia's lancers seem like a dead draw, so I found some big angels: Angel of Invention, Archangel of Thune, Archangel of Tithes, Baneslayer Angel, Blinding Angel, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and Sunblast Angel. I hope this helped!

Have you considered Blinding Angel? This will skip the opponents attack phase. I use Angel's Trumpet and either Dolmen Gate or Iroas, God of Victory for free swings on my turn and to tap the opponents creatures.

My deck has a pretty heavy prison slant but there might be some other creatures you could consider if you wanted to take a look.

Okay, brace yourself. I'm going all out.

I've started moving some options to my main board.

I want to move a lot of the heavier guys like Archangel of Thune and Blinding Angel but I enjoy how fast and affordable it is now.

I haven't play tested this against someone yet but I imagine having 4 Soul Warden's and 4 Soul's Attendant might be a bit much but the idea here is that every creature that is thrown out I get 8 life, which is doubled by Rhox Faithmender which would trigger my 2 Angelic Accord's having two Angel Tokens coming out every turn which triggers it all over again.

This is something I stumbled across during a test draw and didn't really consider, generating all these angels, attaching Celestial Mantle and doubling my life per hit.

Looking nice so far!! Here are some suggestions from my experience, fellow Kaalia player :)

As far as creatures go, pretty much just play the ones you like!

Some less-budget suggestions: Master of Cruelties, pretty much instant kill if they have no blockers. Rune-Scarred Demon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Aurelia, the Warleader, Lord of the Void, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Gisela, the Broken Blade. Those are some of my favorites. A little heavier on the budget but super fun!

Mid-budget options: Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Platinum Angel, Anya, Merciless Angel, Mana-Charged Dragon, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Angel of Despair, Mother of Runes, Deathless Angel, Hellkite Tyrant, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Blinding Angel, Overseer of the Damned, Akroma, Angel of Fury.

More budget-friendly options: Angel of Serenity, Angelic Arbiter, Indulgent Tormentor, Reya Dawnbringer, Harvester of Souls, Bloodgift Demon, Exquisite Archangel, Herald of the Host (For multiplayer), Angelic Skirmisher, Bruna, the Fading Light (to pair with Gisela), Seraph of the Sword, Guardian of the Gateless.

There are obviously numerous options as far as creatures go. Those are a couple of mine. But don't go off just what other people say- if you don't like the feel of killing someone outright with Master of Cruelties, don't get him! If you want to play a little more defensive you can run Seraph of the Sword and Guardian of the Gateless or something! Just play what you want to! :)

You may want to stay away from enchantment Auras, as they can get 2-for-1ed pretty easily. Gift of Immortality is great though, as it can come back to the field. Maybe opt for equipments instead, such as Fireshrieker in place of Battle Mastery and Prowler's Helm (which I see you have) or Whispersilk Cloak, which has the added benefit of shroud. Spectra Ward is a pretty good Aura, as it gives protection from all colors, making whichever creature (supposedly Kaalia) free to attack and block, without taking any damage. But again if someone plays Day of Judgment, it'll get 2-for-1ed.

Not really sure about the curses. I personally probably wouldn't run them, but they seem fun!

Dragon Tempest is a good include. Give all your fliers haste!

That being said you might want to not have too many at all. Mainly equipment to protect Kaalia, like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Mask of Avacyn or equipment of the like.

You definitely want ramp, and I see you have some. The appropriate signets, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, probably the cluestones (They can draw you cards, which is usually more useful than getting a small creature until end of turn, as with the keyrunes).

You have quite a bit of removal which can be good! Sometimes you can have too much though, and that is occasionally my problem. You have some good target removal and a couple good board wipes. I have Earthquake in my deck, although I haven't found it super useful yet. Merciless Eviction, Hallowed Burial, Planar Cleansing, akroma's wrath, Fumigate, and maybe even Torment of Hailfire are good. But as with creatures, there are tons of options for board wipes.
Land bases can be pretty rough to figure out, not to mention expensive. Going super budget, obviously the guildgates, lifegain lands (Scoured Barrens, etc.), bounce lands (Boros Garrison, etc.), other dual lands (Forsaken Sanctuary, etc.). All the basics. Other useful, cheap lands include Exotic Orchard, Rupture Spire, and the pain lands like Caves of Koilos and Battlefield Forge.

If you're going to spend a little more, the check lands like Clifftop Retreat and Dragonskull Summit are great. Scry lands such as Temple of Malice and be very useful. Obviously fetchlands and shocklands are good, but not friendly to the budget at all. I don't think they're worth it sometimes. But everything is up to you! :)

Hopefully these suggestions help! I've said it a lot, but play whatever you think will be the most fun for you! Good luck in the building process- I'll be following along to see how it goes! :)

@ Rainbow-sama

I've chosen Ghostly Prison over Archangel of Tithes because of my local meta. There are some really fast aggro boardswarm decks like Elves. In my playtest, waiting until turn 4 + they need to pay 1 less mana with Archangel of Tithes was not worth it. Of course Archangel of Tithes would fit the main strategy of the deck much more and is also a viable option for the sideboard.

The ideal starting hand is at least 1x Plains with 1x Weathered Wayfarer or 2x Plains and some low drops. Mulligan in this deck is pretty hard to take. Mulligan to 5 can cost you already the game. But one mulligan is ok if you have 2-3 really high drops (Angels).

Sideboarding 4xNevermore against decks that rely on ONE strategy to win like combo decks or some real cheesy stuff.Mana Tithe is good against Midrange/Control decks that curve out at every turn. Most of the time, it's enough to say that you play Mana Tithe in Sideboard. The psychological effect will make them play around it even if it's not sideboarded.Leyline of Sanctity is important if they play hand disruption.

@BallzanyaBaneslayer Angel and Blinding Angel are nice drops, but i had to cut it to Legendary Angels only. It is much funnier to play with Tutor effects like Thalia's Lancers and searching for what you need.

Acolyte's Reward seems nice. Need to test it.
