Vlasiax on Bow before Draconic King!!! | *M20* Update

Hmm... I'm not sure about that, it's technically a "Dragon" that might cut 2-3 mana but this time colored from our Dragons and make it way easier to cast The Ur-Dragon . However 6 CMC slot is pretty tight since we want not ramp/cost reduction cards but something that might win games or give huge advantage immediately, like Atarka, World Render - her double strike basically translates to Overrun effects in some decks.

Another slot is Balefire Dragon , which we completely omitted last time but check this out. It's:

  • 6 CMC
  • 6/6
  • Dragon with Flying
  • that COULD be considered a boardwipe IF he connects.
And here we are Drakuseth, Maw of Flames , which is:

  • 6 CMC
  • 7/7
  • Dragon with Flying
  • DOES NOT need to connect to spread damage across the board
I think that we were looking at the wrong spot all this time - he actually IS upgraded removal but not for Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire . What do you think about this? Balefire Dragon actually is better in Kaalia of the Vast since he needs to connect, while here we could squeeze a little more off of simple attack trigger.

Hi LordKunai,

Sephara, Sky's Blade is a good standard/limited card with the reduced cost, but not able to play the way my Kaalia of the Vast is built. She's not really suitable because I don't have a great deal of other creatures to protect, and she doesn't protect herself.

I wouldn't run her in this type of build, there are some builds I could see her being useful though.

If you just switched Kaalia of the Vast for Kaalia, Zenith Seeker , and didn't change anything else in the deck, I would merely suggest you take a look at the mana curve, and maybe consider more rocks/ ramp, so I suggest Smothering Tithe and I definitely increase your lands. Zenith Kaalia is good for card draw, but you won't be cheating creatures in anymore with Vast Kaalia, so you lose a one big advantage, and gain another. You might just have to re-jig it a bot more. The testing I've done with Kaalia, Zenith Seeker suggests she is going to be a great commander for the dragon / demon / dragon tribes, but she will do it in a very different fashion to her predecessor.

Hi Hodor1,

Kaalia, Zenith Seeker is good, she's a CMC3 draw spell for Razaketh, the Foulblooded . She can possibly draw you 3 cards if you hit right. I haven't fully evaluated where she'll slot in yet.

Vilis, Broker of Blood (M20) is definitely an auto-include in Kaalia of the Vast , + 2 Life = Draw 2 cards. Amazing!

I'll mention you on some more feedback as I dig through the M20 adds. Hoping there will be a new dragon as well!

Personally, I have always felt Kaalia of the Vast was too open ended. I love what she does I just don't think she needs to do it for three creature types. But even if you focus on one of the the three tribes the decks were all kinda samey.

I think this new Kaalia will be better for narrowing her focus. I'm gonna build her as angel tribal since angel tribal needs all the card draw it can muster. Plus having a commander that could come down on turn 3 is another thing that will help the tribe out immensely. There are also enough low costed angels coming out that you aren't always gonna be drawing into giant bombs that sit in your hand.

My other idea was to run her in a discard shell where you can keep drawing into bombs that you dump to abilities like Sire Of Insanity an then recur them with your favorite recursion method (or some of them angels that are good at it like Karmic Guide .)

Personally, I'd probably put the new Kaalia in the 99 of a Kaalia of the Vast deck as a way to refuel after depleting the resources I had beforehand. Now that she's a thing, though, I'm liable to go ahead and start using those resources I've had lying around and collecting dust in one of my binders. We shall see.

I know it's not the point, but I must say it anyway.... This new Kaalia is probably not worthy even in the 99 of any decent Kaalia of the Vast deck. Yes she digs quite deep, but old Kaalia does not run that many dragons so it's too random to pay 3 mana for a 2/2 who CAN draw you anywhere from 0-3 cards and most of the time these draws are too heavy to have an impact immediately.

I like what you are doing with flicker effects, but if anything I can add that you are going in the right direction, but if you want Dragons/ Demons/ Angels I have something else in mind for this new Kaalia.

First -> Let's only Keep a few of these heavy tribal (more importantly the game winning ones like Avacyn / Iona) or the one Attached to either card draw/ tutor or board wipes.

Now let's run Conspiracy so every creature in our deck is either a Angel, a Demon or an Dragon! Add some tutors to fetch conspiracy (white and black are in no shortage of those, even red has Gamble to get it in a pinch! ) and now with enough flicker effects our new Kaalia is not only safe for spot removal and she's drawing us cards much more consistently! we can add old Kaalia and some utility creatures to protect both Kaalias/draw us cards/etc... all the while not hurting our mana curve we can even run a reanimator package in case we suffer a blowout!

I've been doing some looking and figured I would make more use of the chromatic lantern. I thought that Kaalia of the Vast with an angle and demon added with her in the sideboard might add some fun... idk... just kind of having fun now.

Found Leonin Relic-Warder to solve both enchantment and artifact issues. Should be relatively effective, but I do like Demystify .
