At the beginning of your upkeep, if there are seven or more lands in play, sacrifice Impending Disaster. If you do, destroy all lands.

Impending Disaster Discussion

you are right about the lack of mana rocks, especially with land destruction in the deck. I'll consider switching out Impending Disaster for Cryptolith Rite, so if I ramp into Obliterate Cryptolith Rite will remain on the field.

Decimate is sweet, but you need one target of each to resolve the spell.
Impending Disaster is a nifty timebomb, but expect everyone to try and deal with it.
Ruination is just fun.

Trtl: Thanks! This one is definitely trying to make him as competitive as possible. I have other tribal EDH decks that I play for fun, but I really wanted a meaner one that could hang with the favorite decks of my regular playgroup (Angels, Dragons, Slivers, etc..). Once I started building it I decided I really wanted to make it strong in general, not just in my playgroup. I will definitely check out your deck!
I've dropped some fun cards that were either really highly costed or too gimmicky to include, but I tried to run something strong that had a similar effect. The best example I have is instead of Goblin War Drums I am running Nemesis Mask. They both have similar effects, but the Nemesis Mask condenses it into it's most potent version. Running both wouldn't be bad either, as your chances of drawing that effect double.
I had Impending Disaster sideboarded for a long time, but ultimately decided not to run it because of the lack of control I had over when it goes off. Yes, the land destruction probably hurts you the least, but your opponents have some control over when it pops off. I much prefer a Ruination or Boom/Bust, especially with Crucible of Worlds and Blood Moon out.

Well this is pretty cool, glad to find a fellow Goblin Tactician! Though your deck is far more competitive and less gimmicky... If you're interested, here's my deck! Halfhearted Tactician
Also, why not add Impending Disaster?

Admonition Angel has won me games before on her own, the interaction with Crucible of Worlds is very nice, surprised you don't play a mid-range land destruction, Armageddon + Cataclysm + Ravages of War strategy to eliminate and play lands while Exiling your opponents permanents. Recurring Strip Mine or Wasteland isn't very nice >:)
Marsh Flats feels missing in this build.
Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse work well with Admonition Angel, they trigger him twice as well, but enter tapped so understandable to not be played. Might be better than Temple of Silence though.
Very fun build. Love the weaponry.

Hey, glad it helped you out!
I'm showing $1,093.74 with the cheapest edition in LP-NM, on TCG Player. The reserved list prices on NM cards are weird right now, so expect to pay another $100-300 to get everything in near mint.
Lands are over a third of the deck's value. You could easily swap out the the more expensive options for budget duals or basics, doing your best to avoid ETB lands (Kaalia likes it fast). I'd say the best way to reduce the buy-in cost would be to skip the ABUR duals, enemy fetchlands, filter lands, Cavern of Souls, and Volrath's Stronghold. That'd save you almost $415 right there. The filters aren't 100% requires, by the way. I'd run snow basics if I didn't come across the expeditions for the bling factor.
As for the non-land cards, the most expensive would be Mox Diamond, Mana Crypt, Linvala, and Ravages of War. Those'd run you about $210 all together. I'd say the priority among them would be the Crypt above all else. Ravages is vital if you rely on MLD for your win condition, but thankfully you can always use Impending Disaster as a budget option. Linvala has value depending on your meta, and the Mox might be a personal call- I've seen arguments both for and against the Moxes. Either way, both could be back burner cards depending on how the deck plays for you.
All said, that's about $625 you could trim off the top, before accounting for budget replacements. It brings the buy-in from $1,100 to about $475. You could get the deck running for even less than that using creature filler or other budget stand-ins.
For reference, here's the in-cart prices of the specific cards I mentioned, mostly in LP:
- $80.81 Badlands
- $71.27 Mox Diamond
- $71.19 Scrubland
- $53.98 Cavern of Souls
- $52.99 Mana Crypt
- $52.44 Plateau
- $48.00 Arid Mesa
- $47.99 Ravages of War (Judge promo)
- $36.74 Linvala, Keeper of Silence
- $32.90 Marsh Flats
- $27.90 Volrath's Stronghold
- $24.75 Fetid Heath
- $19.29 Prairie
Good luck! Oh, and note that Kaalia's deck will be released in the Commander Anthology bundle that they have coming out soon. It may lower the prices on some of her cards, as well as Kaalia herself (who's running around $30 right now, i think?).
