@ForTheOldFrame: Thanks for your upvote and your detailed comment and sorry for posting so late. I was busy the last days and didn't find the time to reply.

I will try to answer to all your suggestion but I myself aren't an expert in EDH too. So maybe I am wrong with some choices and many cards depend on teh playgroup you are playing:

So thanks again for your comment and now I have the problem to find cards to take out for your suggestions ;-)

ForTheOldFrame on Lin Sivvi's Rebels

Upvoted and saving for future reference; I'm debating building something similar myself at some point. Rebels strike me as an archetype that's strong to the point of being dishonorable -- even today when a 4/4 for 4 is a little expensive.

If it weren't for Lin-Sivvi, I'd suggest going WB for black's excellent card draw, and access to Deathtouch and a few black rebels; but I think Lin-Sivvi is stronger than the entire color black, in this deck.

Understand that I know very little about EDH -- I've only played a few games, and never won any -- but I've been reading up and gathering advice; hopefully what follows will be worth it.

Glad to see that you're running Devout Chaplain and Allay, and that you're considering Mentor of the Meek and Concerted Effort. I really like Ramosian Revivalist.

Thoughts, from how I understand EDH so far:

  1. Rebels are playing a long game by definition; use land fixing to match. Journeyer's Kite and Thawing Glaciers can thin out the deck as well as Green can. Land Tax might also be worth it, but definitely keep your Tithe.
  2. Run Concerted Effort (tutor it out with Lost Auramancers, Plea for Guidance, or Windbrisk Heights), and tutor out Rebels with abilities you want to share. It looks like you're running most of them already -- I'm especially happy to see Thermal Glider and Rappelling Scouts.
  3. Mana ramp? I've heard it says that whoever gets the most mana tends to win an EDH game, and I can particularly believe it for this deck. Temple of the False God is reliable, especially with the tutoring solutions I mentioned. Sword of the Animist would also work.
  4. Card draw: use Mentor of the Meek, Slate of Ancestry, maybe Jayemdae Tome and Armistice.
  5. Light of Day if your play group will tolerate it.

Breaking off here, since there's only so many cards you can propose in one comment. Will resume in a moment.

I cannot choose a single card as my favorite from this set, but I am very fond of Resplendent Angel, as angels are my favorite creatures in this game, and this is one of the few cards in the that promotes angel tribal as a strategy, with another recent example being Lyra Dawnbringer.

I also very much like Arcane Encyclopedia, as it is a strictly better version of Jayemdae Tome. It is a very subtle card that will not draw much attention or have an immediate impact upon the game, but can be immensely beneficial over many turns.

I am not surprised, but still displeased, that the worst cycle of dual lands (or at least one of the worst cycles) is being reprinted in this set, but at least all ten are being reprinted, as it has been some time since a full cycle of ten dual lands was printed in a single set.

Also, Pelakka Wurm was perfectly fine as an uncommon, so promoting it to a rare is wasting a rare card slot in this set, in my mind.

After two negative observations, I have a positive one: WotC finally printed a strictly better version of Jayemdae Tome in the form of arcane encyclopedia! Currently, I do not need such a card for any of my decks, but it will be very welcome if I do need it. Now, would it be too much to hope for a one-time version of Planar Portal or Ring of Three Wishes?

I would lose Jayemdae TomeAnd Blasted Landscape there's just better draw that you can use.

As I read you put this is your first EDH deck so do you know that Arcum is one of the competitive EDH decks.

A lot of people run Zero Drop artifact creatures like Phyrexian Walker and the like.

Using your Commander's ability to fetch Paradox Engine, then cast a second zero drop creature allowing you to untap your commander and use the Ability of your commander again 4 Citanul Flute.

which is used to go get more zero drop creatures which untappd your commander letting you to sacrifice the zero drop creatures toGo get Basalt Monolith and Rings of Brighthearth.

Then make infinite Mana at this point and with the flute on the field you can just pull out any creature in your deck.

But most people just go get Walking Ballista.

Then play it for an insane amount of Mana and after it hits the field remove 1/1 counters to deal damage directly to their opponents.

Well I'm a Feldon of the Third Path guy myself but lemme tell ya: you NEED Trading Post! It's just SO helpful! Also, in a pinch, Jayemdae Tome and, my fav, Daretti, Scrap Savant. Also, how about a new name? 'Guess Who's Back! Back Again!' has a nice ring to it.

As your deck list is pretty big so I thought I would give you some ideas for cards to cut.

Akroma, Angel of Fury: good, but does not have a big enough effect for commander

Anger: you're only running 2 mountains

Dragon Whelp, Serra Angel, Orzhov Guildmage, Ichor Wellspring: not large enough effect

Dread Cacodemon, Reiver Demon I'm not sure about this but I don't think Kaalia's ability qualifies as casting it

Duergar Hedge-Mage good card but again, you are only running 4 mountains and 6 plains

Fallen Angel: you don't really have a use for a sac engine.

Jayemdae Tome: Just not great

Wrecking Ball no need for land destruction and there is better creature removal

Soul Snare: better options, ie Swords to Plowshares

Ghostly Prison:fine cared but has no real reason to be in this deck

Vow of Duty: just run a removal spell

Earthquake, Evincar's Justice, Pyrohemia, Sulfurous Blast: The mardu colors are the king of board wipes, run something better. ie. Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Wrath of God, Chain Reaction, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Decree of Pain to name a few

Congregate: don't need the life gain. Unless of course you play lots of token decks

Liliana of the Dark Realms: you have 3 swamps

you have a good amount of good creature but because your commander relies on your hand here are some more card draw ideas:Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Bloodgift Demon, Damnable Pact, Dragon Mage, Erebos, God of the Dead, Harvester of Souls, Necrologia, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Skeletal Scrying, Underworld Connections, Wretched Confluence, and Read the Bones.

More additional combat phase spell would also greatly benefit you. World at War, Aurelia, the Warleader, Fury of the Horde, Hellkite Charger, Relentless Assault, Savage Beating, Scourge of the Throne, Seize the Day, Waves of Aggression

in case you haven't already you may want to check out https://edhrec.com/commanders/kaalia-of-the-vast for more card ideas.

Looks like a great start, hope my comments were helpful
