Hi MrWilb3rt,

Nice deck. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH.

Combat Celebrant is a cheap exert additional attack phase, also,

Combat Celebrant + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Splinter Twin | Infinite Combat Phases

Adarkar Valkyrie + Aurelia, the Warleader + sac outlet like Goblin Bombardment / Fanatical Devotion | Infinite Combat Phases

Reconnaissance or Iroas, God of Victory could help with blocking issues during the attack phases.

Boros Charm to make your guys indestructible as well could be a nice surprise attack.

Moat is another similar to Ghostly Prison .

There's also lots of tutors, or Gamble to find your Aggravated Assault or Hellkite Charger , stuff like Steelshaper's Gift or Open the Armory can help find the Sword of Feast and Famine .

+1 Cheers.

I think your deck needs to be more focused. You seem to be going in multiple directions which tends to lower the power of your deck.

If you want to make your deck faster the #1 thing you can do is invest a better land base. A lot of your lands come into play tapped, and that is bad. You want lands that can come in untapped, this is the first step in speeding the deck up.

The next step would be Artifact Ramp and Ramp Spells. You have very few of each type, you want to increase those numbers probably by about 4-5 each.

I think the real first step is figuring out what you want to do, and cut anything that doesn't contribute to that plan. Land Destruction, Superfriends, and Unblockable Creatures tend to be different strategies. You will tend to see LD in decks that can take advantage of it which Atraxa and Superfriends arent the best. You want a Commander that cheats mana costs and/or puts stuff directly into play like Kaalia of the Vast or Zur the Enchanter .

Hi weezel,

I would caution going down a Wheel of Fortune route. I've never played Wheel of Fortune specifically, but Dragon Mage I've tested. Sometimes, depending on the array of commanders your up against, when I finally get a Kaalia of the Vast resolved, and either Haste/Protected where opponents can't deal with her, I definitely don't want to put 7 cards in my hand, and then put 21 possible solutions for Kaalia of the Vast in others hands. Also, assuming I'm tutoring my win-con, Buried Alive , Reanimate , etc. the Wheel of Fortune becomes useless to me because I have no way to recover those cards (Except Yawgmoth's Will ) from the graveyard, and I've spent mana and life to get them into my hand. Giving your opponent the solution to controlling you mostly won't help you, some situations, sure, but mostly no.

If you build around the graveyard recursion, it would be viable, or go down a Liliana's Caress type structure where draw/discard costs players life, or you control their graveyards with Leyline of the Void type effects, I think they would be good, there's many of those, like Magus of the Wheel , Reforge the Soul , Wheel of Fate . If your looking to disrupt other players by making them discard their tutor results, your probably getting Force of Will on your Wheel of Fortune anyway.

So not enough synergy with it, definitely don't like reloading opponents hands and handing them a solution to whatever I'm doing, like here's 21 chances at a solution for Iona, Shield of Emeria you can't deal with, or solution for Avacyn, Angel of Hope , or solution for Kaalia of the Vast + Lightning Greaves for example.

Faithless Looting is better because you control the discard, keep the combo pieces, and gets combo pieces you've accidentally drawn into the graveyard. Yesterday I did cast Restoration Angel Flash, blocked an attacking Dark Confidant and then on my turn Buried Alive ( Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Karmic Guide , and Razaketh, the Foulblooded ) then Reanimate for the win. There was an Executioner's Capsule in play, but Breya, Etherium Shaper tapped out and couldn't activate, so took my shot.

Hi weezel,

The key benefit of Faithless Looting is to be able to get a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Karmic Guide or Restoration Angel out of your hand into the graveyard. Whenever I draw one of these guys in my hand, it makes my life miserable. I can't Buried Alive them, so Faithless Looting for CMC1 puts them into my graveyard where I can then Reanimate CMC1 . The other benefits, like cycling cards if you don't have an A/D/D with a Kaalia of the Vast is just an additional benefit, or helps with finding a mana so less T3 land drops missed, etc.

Mishra's Bauble , the reason Mishra's Bauble doesn't work properly, is that drawn on T5, for 2 Life, Street Wraith replaces itself (immediately), whereas, a T5 Mishra's Bauble I do nothing T5 and then get 2 cards on T6 which is probably too late because 2 other players went infinite on T5 themselves. Urza's Bauble is similar to Mishra's Bauble if you prefer that effect.

Kaalia of the Vast is super fun, but to run really well, the deck is going to get pricey in your mana base and in essentially wanted the best cards in 3 different tribes.

@SynergyBuild: Lulz. Never thought I'm saying this, after I found how a damned Accordion works here, I had to decide to do something like this as a Wincon in (Mardu). Though what CMDR to use is something I still dunno… Not Counting Mayael variants Kaalia of the Vast , or Aggro Zurgo Helmsmasher , Vamps w/ no support for this (Any Mardu CMDR of C17's Vampire Tribal.), Weenies Alesha, Who Smiles at Death , much less Aikido Queen Marchesa . Same also goes for Partner CMDRS. One Wincon in question allows Doomsday , but I wanted an all Package. I wonder what I can use for this; as I've little options; maybe Mathas, Fiend Seeker could be good? Tariel, Reckoner of Souls ? I doubt Oros, the Avenger will do anything... Ideas?

Dango I've used both of them in addition to Grenzo, Dungeon Warden , Kaalia of the Vast , Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, and I'm pretty sure one other but I can't recall right now...

I enjoyed Shirei but wanted to test others. Athreos was...slightly annoying. Once my friends learned the trick he lost a lot of impact. Might revisit him in the future though.

marco-piatti on Commander deck for a beginner

Well if i had to go by commander i would pick one between Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , Kaalia of the Vast or The Scarab God .. Who would you recomend considering my budget? In terms of style i would pick control over aggro.. I also like vampires but i've heard a lot of people saying that Edgar Markov/Olivia's commander deck are not very good unless you spend a lot of money (but, as i said, i'm new into commander so it's quite likely that could be said even for the other commanders i've listed so that's why i was talking about coulors and not commanders.)
