Deathless Angel Discussion
2 months ago
Hey Zerraphon, nice you liking the idea! Well you want the protection pieces i got in there. I am playing in a meta where removal is not the focus of a lot of decks but there are some nasty things that from time to time fly around. It helps a lot having Avacyn, Angel of Hope and her little sister Deathless Angel around. Same goes for Teferi's Protection which you can also replace, if it is not in your budget, think Boros Charm is a nice addition. The black pieces i got in this deck are mostly supportive and you don't really need black. Most of your draw can be done from blue anyways and recursion is decent in white. Make sure you got Bruna, the Fading Light in there, i replaced her with Phyrexian Reclamation cause it is just cheaper. The only thing you lose from not having black is some decent removal in form of [Utter End] and potentially Merciless Eviction (did put that into my licia deck thats why it is not in this deck). The other way you profit from red. I think you should really put stuff in that gives Haste ( Fires of Yavimaya Dragon Tempest ) and so on. Doublestrike should also be a higher priority if you have red. Think if you build around KT you need to try out how the ramp and draw from the commander plays out. This deck is build around ramping early, thats why there are 13 pieces, but also tuned to not heavily have to rely on your ramp spells. If you get to 4-5 Lands you are mostly good to go and the deck functions. It is a slower mid range control deck and red should probably accelerate this a little bit, cause you can give your creatures haste. I think thats why you probably dont need that much protection spells, cause you can prepare your turns in your hand because of haste. This deck has to protect the board state over several turns, cause of the +1/+1 counter theme that is the shell for the Angel Tribal. I just suggest you to find a shell for your ladies and awesome Angels and go from there. Doublestrike beatdown would be one thing to consider. After that, play test a lot. It takes a lot of time to refine how many cards you need for your strategy and how many you can devote to other stuff. Would also suggest to think about a second win condition that doesn't resolve around combat damage. I took in the Debt to the Deathless that allows me to close out games that otherwise are unwinable. I think you got a lot of stuff in red like Chandra's Ignition and so on. Have fun building! If you have any questions towards which Angels to include (cause i know it is hard to cut them) just ask!

Possibility Storm is probably the greatest enemy of all to control players there is and it has little down side for your deck.
Karmic Guide is a useful angel and helps with removal problems and Angel of Serenity is good removal/recursion. If you prefer more protective measures there's Aegis Angel, Archangel Avacyn Flip and Deathless Angel for in tribe options.
I think you are better off skipping the voltron route as its kinda slow and instead aim for haste and extra combat effects like Aggravated Assault (goes infinite with Sword of Feast and Famine), Combat Celebrant, Waves of Aggression and just crush your opponents quickly. If you go this route Crescendo of War and Archangel of Strife will make things very interesting.
With that in mind you may have better luck with Aurelia, the Warleader piloting the deck, I personally think the extra combat step is more valuable as your not geared to exploit pinging damage or burn spells with Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. If you don't swap her out you should add Heartless Hidetsugu then and exploit that damage bonus.

+1 from me! I like that a third of the deck is creatures. I'd consider adding Boros Charm and maybe Deathless Angel to help keep them alive in the event of a boardwipe etc. There's a lot of 'wipes you can add yourself; like Blasphemous Act, Wrath of God, and Day of Judgment. Clear the way if people start getting ahead of you haha
If you're looking for boros ideas, please check out my aurelia deck! Cheers!

LittleBlueHero yeah I've been considering making a faster mono white commander deck, the one downside with this one is that it can drag out some games. Don't get me wrong I like long matches but sometimes it's too much, so a draw and go strategy would be interesting.
As for Hundred-Handed One it's more that with Concerted Effort, Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Avacyn and Deathless Angel i have more of a chance to have an indestructible creature with reach which can block (in this deck up to 101 times). Not only that I've been in games where my flying has been taken from all my creatures but with him in I have reach to fall back on which he can pass on through Concerted Effort.
Pull from Eternity was more to bring back important creatures that I failed to protect from exile. I have a lot of grave recurral that it's helpful. Plus i can return one of the Brisela pieces if necessary.

Hi! I just cycled my The Forsaken of the Vast (EDH, Casual Aggro) and saw yours. I am a big fan of Kaalia, and she has been my most-played commander. I think at a skilled-but-casual table where I play she is pretty devastating.
So far I really like your deck! You have a lot of what I consider the Kaalia essentials - and we both agree on running Dragon Tempest which I think is a no-brainer yet I see missing on several deck lists.
For suggestions, I think you have a couple things you could improve right away. The first would be - in my opinion - to cut out the creatures that don't fit the deck schema. Iroas, God of Victory and Mother of Runes are pretty non-essential to the deck and are taking up valuable Demon/Dragon/Angel space. If you are looking for protection try out Deathless Angel in one of those slots instead.
The second suggestion would be to consider running as much additional attack phase cards as you can. You have Hellkite Charger, for consistency I included its enchantment brother Aggravated Assault, and some supplementary Waves of Aggression and Legion's Initiative.
In general, since Kaalia focuses on creatures powerfully, look for ways to move cards away from instant/sorceries and onto creatures if you can. I'd say 28 creatures is a bit low for Kaalia, and you could swap in some creatures for things like card draw and take out the cards that are more static and ineffective to the overall scheme of the deck. Try to find alternative like running a Harvester of Souls instead for where you slotted Underworld Connections.
These are my opinion of course, I think it's a fine start to Kaalia. She is one of my favourite commanders to ever play with and it brings me joy to see someone share in that fun. I spent months editing and refining my Kaalia deck to fit my particular flavour of her. I respect what you're doing a lot and I think you will have a blast building, playing, refining and conquering with our girl Kaalia!

Okay, so fair warning, I haven't looked through every past version of your list, so some of these may be cards you've already considered, but I wanted to take a broad approach and hope to give you some stuff you've never seen before.
