Gods Willing Discussion

I play Kaalia, Goddess of Monsters. And recently I've been focusing on protecting her, just like You, therefore I have some suggestions.
I see this is EDH, so your CMC might be a bit higher than in Duel Commander, but tell me, do You have something to cast while Kaalia of the Vast is out of play for a while ? Or do you hard cast all the ~7 CMCs from you hand ? To be honest I have a huge problem with this. That is why I've removed some fatties from my deck and added cards I could cast when my Kaalia of the Vast gets so much hate, that she barely touches the battlefield.
Ok, now for all the protection.
I really don't like auras as protection. I used to play Spirit Mantle, Unquestioned Authority, etc. but removed them, since a simple point removal like Searing Blood or Mizzium Mortars not only destroys my Kaalia, but also my aura gets buried with her. I came to a conclusion that instant protections are much more efficient. They are cheap, and can give my commander protection from any colour, which can prevent dame form creature, spell or 'counter' point removal (now, I need to find something to protect Kaalia from artefacts like Umezawa's Jitte). And usually they also give some other useful stuff.
That is why I highly reccomend cards like:
Brave the Elements - it doesn't target and gives protection to many creatures.
Gods Willing - 1 + scry is fair enough.
Ok. Now for my favourite protection card
Earnest Fellowship - I love this enchantment. My Kaalia of the Vast gets protection from 60% of any danger. If You have Cavern of Souls at the same time, she is practically untouchable. Sometimes Earnest Fellowship might be a double edged sword, since Your creatures won't be able to block some attackers, but usually all my creatures attack each turn, so it doesn't really matter. I recommend You to play test it.
I wander why don't You have Swiftfoot Boots ? Those are very nice shoes for this Lady.
Devoted Caretaker is second mother to me.
Is Kaervek the Merciless that good ? You can't sneak him in with Kaalia, and he is very expensive. Sorin, Grim Nemesis would be better I think, since You are the one with high CMC + it gives You some draw.
Feel free to advise me. I also struggle to protect my Kaalia.
+1 for You deck :)

323Dimitri Thanks for the comment.I used to run Gods Willing too but as someone pointed out the double heroic trigger on Emerge Unscathed is better than the Scry 1.I actually have a playset of Monastery Mentor s which I am actually using in the deck but it stops being budget.They are very very powerful indeed .Any ideas on if I should swap Raise the Alarm for Spectral Procession ?

Cool deck, +1. Am surprised by the absence of the almost obligatory Boros Elite but understand your choices since you have explained them. Am very curious as to why no Brave the Elements or Gods Willing though.

To change format hit the edit deck button. Next near the top of the screen to the right of the decks name there will be a drop down menu where you can select the format you want.
Here are a few ways to protect him.
To make sure he resolves/protect him against counter magic:
Once he's in play cast one of these on him to make their spells fizzle or just get them off the stack yourself:
Gain protection: Like the last category these can protect rafiq but they pull double duty by making it such that creature's of that color can't block him.
Plenty of other options too but those are the ones that i'd look at first. Run some of them and rafiq will likely stick around a bit longer.

BenMonte, it ain't Modern legal. Mother of Runes is the odd one out. I was just experimenting with her. For a quick fix throw in either some Brave the Elements (no good for non-Green things such as Voracious Wurm) or Gods Willings. I hope it works well for you. It's been a while since I've played it.
