Bloodgift Demon Discussion

kuru54 You're probably right, I was feeling similarly. I'm thinking of dropping the Bloodgift Demon for 4x Hypnotic Specters. That would give me another creature with a card discard ability which would free me up to add Phyrexian Arena in place of the 2 Whispers of Emrakul and possibly 2 Swamps. I suppose it all depends on whether 20 land is sufficient. I would think they are for a deck nothing costing more than 3 CMC. Thoughts?

Doesn't Wizards already have 30 card starter decks available for free for players who are just starting out? At least my LGS hands them out to new players all the time.

The advice I would give is to have a single bulk rare that represents the color well in the deck. It is goo to have a deck where you are working towards something. An iconic creature is the easy way to do it:

Glyph Keeper
Emeria Shepherd
Bloodgift Demon
Ancient Hellkite
Hydra Broodmaster

Avacyn, Angel of Hope is pretty much a staple in Kaalia builds since the deck is so soft to removal. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is also super good for a deck that can cheat her out, as she basically makes opponent life totals 20, which is much more manageable in Commander for dealing combat damage.

You really need repeatable methods of drawing more cards than you have, especially those that come down before Kaalia hits the battlefield or that can be used after her and without her. Phyrexian Arena still provides 1 card per turn for a measly cost of 1/40th your life total. Bloodgift Demon is similar in effect but can actually be cast without Kaalia if you have trouble sticking her, which can be invaluable when your opponents have removal.

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a reasonably strong demon without a huge price tag, and I'd recommend him over Goldnight Redeemer.

Also, bread and butter Kaalia plays is turn 3 Kaalia, turn 4 Armageddon, swing Kaalia, put a huge demon or angel into play. I recommend looking into that, as Kaalia decks are incredibly easy to stop if opponents have access to their mana sources.

angelusmortis Thanks for the suggestions! Razaketh, the Foulblooded is good, although I'm not sure what creatures I would want to sac to him. But if it wins me the game it might be worth it. Balefire Dragon is great, but out of the price range at the moment. Karmic Guide is also good, I've been thinking of adding one. Right now Reya Dawnbringer is kind of filling that spot, as she has a similar affect.

TheRedKnight Thanks! I don't think I'll spend the money on Necropotence or Phyrexian Arena right now, but I do agree I need more card draw. Indulgent Tormentor, Bloodgift Demon, and Harvester of Souls are the main card draws I have. I'll have to add in some of those suggestions! Ob Nixilis Reignited looks pretty good as well.

I like your list and I get the budget thing! But how do you refill your hand? Except for the Indulgent Tormentor you have no card draw... at all! And that is optional... 3 life in EDH is a laughably low price to keep you from drawing! Keeping things budget you don't need a Necropotence but black offers so much in draw! Phyrexian Arena seems a no-brainer and the Arena on a stick Bloodgift Demon would be a nice inclusion. Read the Bones, Night's Whisper and Painful Truths as well as Sign in Blood would all go a long way to keep your hand full of fatties to drop with our vengeful Lady :) Ob Nixilis Reignited is sweet utility too since he draws and nukes stuff and is relatively cheap money wise ;)
