Kaalia of the Vast Discussion

I know she gets threat, but show me another $50 Tier 3 commander (take of eh Rasputin Dreamweaver).
Caveat: Probably a better argument for Melek, Izzet Paragon to be Tier 3.

Darksteel Ingot seems too slow and Fellwar Stone is going to produce colorless for you pretty often, since blue and green are pretty popular colors. Both are comparable to Mardu Banner. Also consider Chromatic Lantern, I consider it mandatory in 3+ color decks and most would agree that it's good.
Swiftfoot Boots is another way to give Kaalia haste. Blade of Selves would be pretty bonkers in a deck with Kaalia, ntm the ETB effects on a lot of creatures. Strionic Resonator is another way to copy triggered abilities like Kaalia's.
Also, I think I've seen another Kaalia deck on here with this title.

Hey etheraldreamer, Inexorable Tide is excellent, see where your going there. The reason I don't run it is simply its CMC 5, I'm hoping to already be setup with Mizzix of the Izmagnus around there. Longer term you'll get more value playing a Inexorable Tide.
Austin_Smith_of_Cards, excellent suggestions. Lava Spike + Desperate Ritual + Izzet Guildmage is an excellent kill combo. Adding it to my description above. The only part I don't like is that the Lava Spike, standalone it's not that great. Desperate Ritual although a little under powered, is still borderline playable card. Usually I prefer combos where each card is okay on it's own, but not always, see Pili-Pala.
Stroke of Genius has been on the cusp, for a long time. I keep questioning whether to get it in there or not. Visions of Beyond seems like the best remove for it, but I'm so low on Isochron Scepter targets as is. I've had 2 scenarios in 7 games now where i've had to wait 2 turns to pull an instant with CMC 2 or less for the Isochron Scepter so I know that I need more targets not less. Curious Homunculus Flip / Voracious Reader Flip is more likely.
I have Scour from Existence in my maybeboard, Purphoros, God of the Forge is a key reason why Scour from Existence is key. Chaos Warp for me just doesn't do it. In play testing I'm still trying to figure out if 1) Play for my infinite combo, or 2) Have control to stop other combos is the correct play. Thus far I haven't lost (yet, but been at 1 life). Can't remember all the commander's I've faced (No Prossh, Skyraider of Kher yet so that would be a real challenge). Some commanders: Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Breya, Etherium Shaper (seems to be the flavor of the month right now), Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Kaalia of the Vast, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, Karn, Silver Golem, The Gitrog Monster, can't remember any others. So verdict is till out on that. It's VERY good.
Fact or Fiction is funny, I just took it out of the deck Friday to test some other cards in it's place. I very much missed it in this weekend's games. Fact or Fiction returning to the deck soon as I figure out the removals. I'm considering removing the Isochron Scepter, that would change up a few cards that are simply there just to be targets, but then again when I think of an Isochron Scepter + Counterspell or Isochron Scepter + Mystical Tutor or Isochron Scepter + Cyclonic Rift... hmm, how do I not want that recursion, or a Visions of Beyond! = Draw 3 cards.
All Excellent suggestions, any or all should be in the deck. I'm still trying to figure out my fringe cards. Training Grounds maybe.

Have you thought about putting in a Quicksilver Amulet in order to be able to drop high cmc dragons onto the battlefield for cheap. Or even a Kaalia of the Vast but she is by no means a budget card but would be really strong in this deck

I should add to that there is of course the commander anthology on the way reprinting the Heavenly Inferno deck with Kaalia of the Vast along with the others including one for elves and so we might not even see dragons or elves in addition to angels.

please link all cards in your question:
Shroud simply prevents the creature from being targeted. It does not change anything about that creature's abilities, so they can still be countered by Stifle type effects.

In the future, please link all cards in your question. It makes it much easier for us to understand what's going on if we can see the cards involved. You can link cards by using double square brackets: ===code Island ===endcode Island
Shroud means this permanent can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control. It has nothing to do with abilities originating from the shrouded permanent.
