Great deck, I am a bird deck lover, and for many years I have been designing a bird deck, but this looks really well done! can I ask you how you solve the problems of total destruction against you? ( Day of Judgment Cleansing Nova Wrath of God. potentially total destruction could be in your favor thanks to Soulcatchers' Aerie but I wouldn't like to be out in the open for a long time. and maybe with all my best creatures in the cemetery.

I would still like to ask you a question, you did not feel comfortable with Seaside Haven?

KIRK77 on toil of the roil

Thanks for the input GoldenGolgari, I just ordered all the cards on here because I think i'm gonna need to see it in paper to make the final cuts. I don't think the Roil Elemental is going to make the cuts though :( I actually have Sacred Ground in the deck but I definitely think I'm gonna have to put in Flawless Maneuver. I actually had Mirrorweave in the deck as a win-con of sorts if someone has a scary creature but I never though to use it as a 4 mana instant speed boardwipe, that's actually pretty bananas and is for sure gonna have to go in!

Haha, thanks for the decklist loricatuslupus XD! I love checking out cards other people have found and seeing different deck strategies. I'll cut back on my lands for sure. I really like the Ruin Ghost combo, it'll see if I can make space for it when I make the cuts. When Ghostway and Luminous Broodmoth bring the lands back they will not only lose the counters, but they will actually lose the effect making them creatures and just come back as plain old lands that are untapped ;)

Good non-spell combo you might want to include (in case commander eats a Darksteel Mutation etc) is Ruin Ghost, which goes infinite with a Plains and Retreat to Coralhelm. Then you can use Emeria Angel, Retreat to Emeria or Hedron Crab as win cons. I've also found that 35 lands is enough for my deck (shameless plug Azorius Awakening - Now With Extra "Nope"!) - with all the card draw and control you just need to make sure the lands you have out stick by countering board wipes and removing important blockers. That combined with your many ways of giving land creatures Vigilance or untapping them should be enough, but you could always get a Crucible of Worlds as insurance if your meta is super sweeper-heavy. Just so you're aware, flickering with Ghostway or returning lands with Luminous Broodmoth brings them back as 0/0 creatures without counters so unless you cast another spell immediately they'll die as a state-based action. Second Mirrorweave suggestion too.

You have a single piece of artifact/enchantment removal and it requires haste to work on the same turn (Devout Chaplain). There are tons of artifacts/enchantments that hard counter your strategy such as Rest in Peace, Leyline of the Void, Ensnaring Bridge, Island Sanctuary, etc. Make sure to include answer to these as they are commonly played. Stuff like Heliod's Intervention, Return to Dust, Crush Contraband, Vandalblast, Generous Gift, etc.

Your deck is quite reliant on it's board presence so back to back wraths will leave you with only your kitty cat and indestructible only protects it from a limited amount of wraths. Toxic Deluge, Terminus, Evacuation, Cyclonic Rift, etc. all get around indestructible. I'm I big fan of the blinking your board out with Eerie Interlude and Ghostway to protect your board from wraths as they protect from the above board wipes and trigger sweet ETBs.

On the off chance the kitty cat gets to go for the voltron kill make sure you have a way to give it hexproof or shroud. Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are fairly useful for granting haste and protecting key creatures. I think they are worth a look.

Hi MURSEisHere,

Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player, Kaalia, Mirror Breaker. I'm more combo-centric, but you've got a fun looking deck here.

You have a couple lands that might come in tapped, but in my opinion Amulet of Vigor isn't giving you enough value, a blocker sometimes, or a mana sometimes. In playing, I would count the number of activates and utility. Did it untap a permanent (y/n), and did you end up utilizing that untapped (y/n). If yy <= 50% it should go.

What about a Bloodgift Demon for some extra draw, or good ole Phyrexian Arena since you need to refill your hand for Strionic Resonator. Demonlord Belzenlok I also prefer over either of those, since he ETB draws, sometimes 2 cards.

Hellkite Tyrant is really nice, can accumulate mana rocks.

Shock lands are really good, Godless Shrine, Sacred Foundry and Blood Crypt. There's the new Savai Triome it's ok because of it's cycling for late game (I wouldn't run it, but it's borderline).

Caves of Koilos, Battlefield Forge, Sulfurous Springs are reasonably affordable (except Sulfurous Springs) and help with the mana-fixing in 3-color mardu commander.

Razaketh, the Foulblooded is high-power, he is a single card combo enabler if you go down that path with a Leonin Relic-Warder or something in the future.

Lyra Dawnbringer or Whip of Erebos can give you some lifelink, and Whip of Erebos adds a reanimator to trigger off ADD with ETB a second time, for a reasonable price.

The talisman's are very cheap, and the best 2-mana rocks Talisman of Hierarchy / Talisman of Conviction / Talisman of Indulgence, superior to the Signets (except Arcane Signet) and an upgrade to Commander's Sphere. Fellwar Stone also isn't bad, but Chromatic Lantern has it's upside too.

Hall of the Bandit Lord can give you another haste. It enters tapped, so it's not the greatest.

A tutor package would allow you to reduce the number of ADD, taking out the lower power ones, and tutoring the higher power ones, it creates a more consistent play, but also takes away the fun of that randomness.

Already mentioned Amulet of Vigor, but also Gideon, Martial Paragon isn't doing much for you, unless he's a personal favorite, I would cut him.

Staff of Nin is high cost, go Phyrexian Arena CMC3, Necropotence draw a bunch or Bloodgift Demon CMC1 cheaper and can be free cast with Kaalia of the Vast instead. Bloodgift Demon is the slowest of the bunch.

Tyrant's Familiar doesn't trigger off the turn that Kaalia of the Vast plays him, since he enters tapped an attacking. So unless you hard casting for CMC7, your not getting the benefit from him and only hits creatures, there are a variety of other dragons that hit any target. Bogardan Hellkite. Theres the new M21 dragon Terror of the Peaks, he doesn't ETB himself (boo) although, but under a Ghostway could be a win.

Angelic Skirmisher doesn't trigger properly with Kaalia of the Vast, I could see it being a finisher perhaps the next turn, but if it's really connecting for value (2+ big creatures), is it just unnecessary mass overkill vs. something like a Hellkite Tyrant which delivers immediate value as an example. I'll often Wishclaw Talisman a Hellkite Tyrant with a Kaalia of the Vast trigger on the stack and steal back my Wishclaw Talisman.

Hope you find something helpful or to think about!

I one had a Reaper king deck and you are going to have to have more protection for the commander if you want to play the deck. Most of the time reaper king ether stomps on players or gets killed every time you cast him. I would recommend adding Whispersilk Cloak, Ghostway and Darksteel Plate.

I would try and improve the pod chain from 2-6. I don't see too many creatures that you would like to pod into and pod away. I would also suggest some more land ramp. To reach both of these goals I would personally add some of these cards: Wood Elves Yavimaya Dryad Eternal Witness Karmic Guide Reclamation Sage Knight of Autumn Restoration Angel Felidar Guardian Eerie Interlude (To protect from Board Wipes, while also getting ETB triggers again) Ghostway (Same as Eerie Interlude) Kodama's Reach Cavalier of Thorns Vexing Shusher Selvala, Heart of the Wilds Natural Order Nature's Lore Green Sun's Zenith
