Hi,

it might be a bit of a stretch for your mana base, but you could include Flamekin Village, Hall of the Bandit Lord or Hanweir Battlements to grant a creature haste. This way you can maybe cut Ring of Valkas or Chariot of Victory to use their cardslots otherwise.

Soul Snare is not good in here because you won't get any blockers out of the way when Kaalia of the Vast is attacking. Better play Swords to Plowshares.

Instead of Congregate you could play another creature: Angel of Invention, Archangel of Thune, Baneslayer Angel, Butcher of the Horde, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Goldnight Redeemer or Resolute Archangel.

As your deck list is pretty big so I thought I would give you some ideas for cards to cut.

Akroma, Angel of Fury: good, but does not have a big enough effect for commander

Anger: you're only running 2 mountains

Dragon Whelp, Serra Angel, Orzhov Guildmage, Ichor Wellspring: not large enough effect

Dread Cacodemon, Reiver Demon I'm not sure about this but I don't think Kaalia's ability qualifies as casting it

Duergar Hedge-Mage good card but again, you are only running 4 mountains and 6 plains

Fallen Angel: you don't really have a use for a sac engine.

Jayemdae Tome: Just not great

Wrecking Ball no need for land destruction and there is better creature removal

Soul Snare: better options, ie Swords to Plowshares

Ghostly Prison:fine cared but has no real reason to be in this deck

Vow of Duty: just run a removal spell

Earthquake, Evincar's Justice, Pyrohemia, Sulfurous Blast: The mardu colors are the king of board wipes, run something better. ie. Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Wrath of God, Chain Reaction, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Decree of Pain to name a few

Congregate: don't need the life gain. Unless of course you play lots of token decks

Liliana of the Dark Realms: you have 3 swamps

you have a good amount of good creature but because your commander relies on your hand here are some more card draw ideas:Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Bloodgift Demon, Damnable Pact, Dragon Mage, Erebos, God of the Dead, Harvester of Souls, Necrologia, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Skeletal Scrying, Underworld Connections, Wretched Confluence, and Read the Bones.

More additional combat phase spell would also greatly benefit you. World at War, Aurelia, the Warleader, Fury of the Horde, Hellkite Charger, Relentless Assault, Savage Beating, Scourge of the Throne, Seize the Day, Waves of Aggression

in case you haven't already you may want to check out https://edhrec.com/commanders/kaalia-of-the-vast for more card ideas.

Looks like a great start, hope my comments were helpful

You might want to look into Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Suture Priest, Congregate and Crested Sunmare for lifegain. You might also want to add some protection like Banishing Light, Oblivion Ring, Pacifism or Path of Bravery

Sorry for multiple comments, but you should also consider the fact that you have a lot of higher cmc cards and not a lot of ramp. You should throw in some Sol Rings or a Marble Diamond. I would also recommend adding Festival of Trokin in place of Congregate. Though you won't gain life for your opponents creatures, it is much cheaper to cast.

Congregate would do perfect in this deck! Ps. How do you win? I'd recommend putting a couple of Felidar Sovereign in there

kamarupa on $20 Budget MonoWhite Lifegain

Congregate might gain you a lot of life with all those creatures.

Hi Venom_Pistachio, thanks for the comments on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Here are some potential cuts:

Grim Discovery | Return to the battlefield is better, skips the Kaalia of the Vast requirement

Ruthless Ripper | He's too small, and not going to do much for you

Skyblinder Staff | Not necessary

Vessel of Endless Rest | Planning to infinite combo this?

Congregate | Rarely going to be too valuable / too situational

Boros Guildmage | Use a Dragon Tempest or something, creatures too easy to remove, and mana sponges

One or a couple of these should get you Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker in there.

Some other suggestions:

Angel of Despair destroys a permanent for about $3, good with Panharmonicon as well.

Swiftfoot Boots better way to get haste (and hexproof) for equip 1, better than Boros Guildmage

Anguished Unmaking is a great permanent exile, think Purphoros, God of the Forge or along that lines

Bloodgift Demon gives you an extra draw each turn for under $1

Zealous Conscripts can go infinite with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (same as Restoration Angel), for about 50 cents

Hope that helps!
