Spirits on Another Big Dumb Kaalia Deck

6 days ago

Hey nice initial build, +1, fellow Kaalia of the Vast player, Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

You should include a secondary win-con into the deck, the standard Kaalia of the Vast is Crucible of Worlds + Armageddon + Ravages of War + Command Beacon + Strip Mine + Wasteland. Others are Worldgorger Dragon and/or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker which is the one I play. It's too hard to deal 40 damage to all 3 players, especially with your board position, it pulls attention of the other decks, even though the others may be driving toward their win-con combos.

Dragon Tempest has been really nice, CMC 2 Haste which is what Kaalia of the Vast needs, even more than protection. Without haste it will be a tough go.

Mother of Runes is a nice cheap re-usable protection as well.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is awesome, miss Phyrexia/Innistrad, but she isn't an A/D/D so tough to cast her. She will be too slow, albeit very controlling.

You have Brave the Sands use Angelic Field Marshal spot for something else. Maybe an Exquisite Archangel to hit the reset life button, or a Baneslayer Angel to lifelink who can be cast without Kaalia of the Vast, maybe Angelic Arbiter/Linvala, Keeper of Silence if you like the control aspect, or a Grand Abolisher which protect Kaalia of the Vast during your turn, which especially combos nice with the Haste.

I think Sheoldred, Whispering One again is someone that's not working with your overall game plan. The Praetors are way too awesome, but they are going to be far too slow for what you need to accomplish with Kaalia of the Vasts bar-brawl style of aggro play.

Sword of Feast and Famine works good with Hellkite Charger or an Aggravated Assault.

Steelshaper's Gift can pull a Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots which is better than a Hammer of Purphoros.

Citadel Siege is a little slow, your guys are already pretty big, not sure it's worth the 1 blocker tap-down.

Really cool, love Kaalia of the Vast, the mana will take a while but slowly work on it. Cheers.

Love this deck idea! +1

So, if I were you, I'd put in more W creatures that actually cost generic mana, to get max benefit from Oketra's monument. Angel of Invention strikes me as a good choice -- you could bring it out T4 no problem, then cast Omnath T5 plus a land drop after the fact.

On the other hand, Sram's Expertise and Servo Exhibition might be better token generators than Oketra's Monument, especially if your primary big dudes are not white... I'm just doing the math.

Finally, I think your deck's weak spots might be the Cavalry and Mouth / Feed. Perhaps replace them with Emeria Shepherd or Exquisite Archangel, plus a couple more lands? Even with ramp, this doesn't seem like the kind of deck that wants to miss land drops -- you can always use the mana to sacrifice Clues and cast fatties.

Best of luck! Let me know if I can be helpful!

Spirits on Soul of Fiery Darkness

Nice build, cool alt art Kaalia of the Vast. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

You've configured something weird in your deck edit settings, you have Exclude colors WBR, should be exclude colors UG or nothing at all since you shouldn't have either of those colors in here. Makes your charts look wrong.

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon although very cool, and a powerful dragon, his Infect isn't really going to help you with the general damage goal. You don't have the needed support for him Silverblade Paladin, Sword of Feast and Famine, etc. something to make the 10 poison counters viable.

Spellbinder is also very confusing, you have only 6 instant spells, and 3 of them Aurelia's Fury and Comet Storm and Skeletal Scrying will do nothing. So 3 targets is not enough. Also with Savage Beating I don't think it would allow you to pay the Entwine cost either, so you would have to choose a single mode (Extra attack phase I assume is the goal). Plus CMC 3 and Equip 4 is very expensive. I get that it makes the infinite attack phases though, and perhaps you goal is to tutor the combo. I would prefer to tutor Lightning Greaves to protect Kaalia of the Vast and get Haste.

Creatures look very strong, love the Magus of the Moat. Sorin Markov is a nasty piece of business too.

Lord of the Void or Exquisite Archangel could possibly replace Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, but with your Savage Beating he might? get there sometimes?

Anguished Unmaking is a good solution to many problems.

Hellkite Tyrant + Sword of Feast and Famine or an Aggravated Assault can get you attack phases. The Sword of Feast and Famine also is awesome for Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. A Mother of Runes can help him get through blockers too with the additonal protection from, the Sword of Feast and Famine does so nearly unblockable by colored creatures.

Aurelia, the Warleader + Adarkar Valkyrie can also get you there with any sac outlet, Ashnod's Altar/Goblin Bombardment, etc.

Cool deck. Like the flavor of it. +1.

Swords to Plowshares?

I can also add in 4x Thought Scour for your Mechanized Production and Exquisite Archangel - also checking to see if you got my last message.

Eiti3 on A Taste Of Mortality

I made a 5 color deck that did this exact thing two or three years ago before I found tappedout and then tore it apart for the inconsistency of 5 colors and needing to get all those combo pieces. I mean, now you have Exquisite Archangel and card:Gideon of the Trials. +1 nonetheless as I honestly am glad to experience some sort of nostalgia that actually works! I playtested it twice, but never used the general or any of the swing dudes, ie Geist of Saint Traft. Any reason why you chose him?

Lastly, I would like to suggest at least a Sol Ring. Playtesting without any mana rocks felt extremely weird (but that may just be me). Selective Memory might be a cool deal to cut all the cards you don't "need", especially if you die and have Lich's Mirror on field. Curse of Exhaustion might be a tech card based on meta. I play against a lot of combo decks and can sometimes lose to them before I'm even set up. I've found Curse to be a great way to slow down the one person who is the most trouble.

Again +1

Metallic Mimic in place of Oath of Ajani maybe, sure Ajani can get more counters at once but then becomes obsolete since your only running one walker

Vault of the Archangel in place of Reflecting Pool as a test? If your mana colors seem to typically work out the added ability to give deathtouch and lifelink, combined with Archangel of Thune can make things big real fast.

Stoic Angel over Moat for a slight 'budget' cut and another angel :P But yes i know it won't have the same impact

Sublime Archangel to replace Platinum Angel or Exquisite Archangel to give an alternate win con, attack with one super powered angel, leaving defense up incase you don't have vigilance, or to avoid losing the board state to something like bouncing or exiling all attacking creatures

Hi!

Welcome on T/O!As the member above said, get a higher land count. Otherwise you would experience mana screws most of the time.

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.

Cheers,

PJ

Nice seeing an Angels theme pop up. I had to look, since I love playing Angels too.

Maybe I can still be of any help while I am here. Did you think of these options:
