FenIsABasicSwamp on The Maze Ith in Your Mind

Yeah, since suspend says in its reminder text “from hand”, you can’t suspend from the command zone. However, in my first play through of the deck yesterday I was able to sac Command Beacon to put Ith in my hand and then suspend him on my opponent’s end step.

Command Beacon is a good choice since you can use it to dodge commander tax repeatedly.

hi really like your list! but I feel that you rely on the wrong keyword you see in most of the case having flying double strike haste is far better then first strike and vigilence also hexproof is really not that good because it doesnt give it during main phase 1 same thing for indestructible

creature: Skyhunter Skirmisher, Aven Sunstriker Balan, Wandering Knight, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite not sure about this one but it's such a cool card! Akroma, Angel of Wrath and Zetalpa, Primal Dawn if your local meta is slow enough this are the cards

artifact: Quietus Spike, Hammer of Nazahn,

instant: Disenchant

sorcery: Hour of Revelation Wrath of God I know it's pretty weird but I feel that you can try to make your creature indestructible and blow thing up. Add them if you want it's more a play style choice then the other card. Revoke Existence

land: Command Beacon

list of thing to cut in my oppinion: Archetype of Courage, Elite Inquisitor, Batterskull, Ring of Thune, Unexpectedly Absent, Darksteel Mutation, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Knight of Grace, Precinct Captain, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Decree of Justice, Leonin Shikari

if you have any question for the cut or why certain card are on the list just ask me :)

i know you are doing budget, but Mycosynth Lattice is already dropping down to 10 bucks, which fits some of your other power artifacts. Your unwinding clock will now untap your commander and let you search for even more. also in your lands, Command Beacon can get your commander back for you

You hit the nail right on the head and I couldn’t say it better.

Personally I’d love to run Strip Mine, Wasteland, and Rishadan Port, but I can’t afford the additional colorless land base. Also, they’re not grossly effective in a large group.

Command Beacon should be an auto include, but I haven’t found the need just yet to add it.

Spirits on Kaalia, Beyond Heaven and Hell

It's a hard Kaalia of the Vast life for us lords2001,

I wish there were more Grand Abolisher's in the world to protect her, but I can't think of even one other. Defense Grid is the closest, but I also rely on Instant speed removal/tutors myself.

Imperial Recruiter can tutor Grand Abolisher but with so many good multi-purpose tutors, it's not worth it, a little too narrow. I really tried Shred Memory because for CMC3 I can transmute Grand Abolisher or Lightning Greaves but found it slowed me down 1 turn. Re-thinking it now because it can pull me Animate Dead or Dark Confidant or Demonic Tutor or Dragon Tempest or Goblin Bombardment or Terminate... and 7 others. Transmute as a sorcery bugged me too. Might be a good solution if your facing a lot of Specific removal when you cast Kaalia of the Vast. I find I can usually sneak a Lightning Greaves swing through on Turn 3/4 usually uninterrupted. Always feels better when I have a Grand Abolisher though for sure.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Boros Charm, etc. all help with board wipe strategies. In my deck Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH I generally work on progressing the plan I have for my deck to combo, so run very little control. ghostfire86 has a vicious land destruction model some examples Crucible of Worlds, Armageddon, Ravages of War, Cataclysm, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Command Beacon, similar to your board wipe creature/artifact strategy. Land destruction is definitely more common, because it makes dealing with those big 6+ A/D/D much harder to deal with, when you have no mana.

I'm not the biggest fan of Crackling Doom, often the creature I really want to kill isn't always the creature with the highest power. But when your trying to rule the skies in a board-wipe strategy, makes prefect sense to me.

Reconnaissance sounds good in your build, because your primary strategy is Combat Damage to win vs. Combo for me and Land Destruction for ghostfire86.
