Kaalia of the Vast Discussion

Junk_Heap on Kaalia Of The Cookie Cutter

1 day ago


  • Thanks for taking a look! Master of Cruelties was in the deck for a time but I found it to be less than a top performer. Its works best when being dropped by Kaalia of the Vast so that we can take one player out of the game. But without a way to bounce it back to our hand it can't accomplish much else. If you are playing 1v1 its an all-star but in multiplayer I think there are better options.


dlamars on Tribal in Commander

3 days ago

I dig them, I run goblins or zombies a lot and occasionally angels. I think tribes are very flavorful and add identity to the creatures as part of a story/community. I actually despise elves for example, so it is even better when I get to overwhelm them with a horde. Sticking on theme is important to me but some commanders such as Kaalia of the Vast support a crossover of tribes with pretty decent flavor.

ZendikariWol I understand what you mean, there are certain commanders that get very powerful, very fast - Kaalia of the Vast immediately springs to mind, and I'd agree that Arahbo falls into that category. However, I don't think anyone should be dissuaded from a particular commander because it's obviously powerful. I enjoy Arahbo greatly, and if people are coming for you then I'm my mind you must be doing something right. Thanks for your input though, if there were more more room for some protective elements later on then I'd consider those.

The_Overlord_666 on The Halls of Protection

TheRedGoat: Well first thing that is a kind of a restriction for me is that i am a college student with a poor paying job so ya a kinda budget until after college. The groups that i usually play with have the following commanders: Kaalia of the Vast, Progenitus, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, The Locust God, and Sen Triplets. There are a couple others but these are the most common commanders that are played. They are very competitive and if (depending on the game) they don't get an infinite/gaming winning move by the 3-6 turn then something must have gone wrong. the way that i use this deck is to counter or at least deflect a lot of the things that are coming at me so that i could slow done the game by ether making their deck unusable and make them fold or just put it on hold until they kill each other off before i stop turtling and start attacking.

Spirits on Arahbo's Killer Kittens

2 weeks ago

Hey MegaMatt13, Nice Arahbo, Roar of the World deck, I'm trying to build one and found your deck here very helpful. My deck Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats could use help if you have the time!

Trying to figure out the Strionic Resonator, clearly it can copy an Emminence ability, an additional +3/+3 to another target cat, even giving him +6/+6 for . Hi second ability +X/+X says Whenever, so clearly that can be copied, but from my evaluation, I still need to pay the to have the copied ability do anything? So assuming I pay the + (CMC 5), the rulings text says 8/25/2017 While resolving Arahbos last ability, you cant pay multiple times to multiply the effect for one Cat. Does the Strionic Resonator somehow get around that because it says you "may" choose new targets? I'm not sure. If it only can target a different cat, then why wouldn't I just pay the (CMC 3 instead of the ). So for me, I think it only works for Emminence, and for me it's not quite strong enough, I think.

Don't you find Farseek to limiting, why not a Three Visits instead? Probably price/availability my guess. What about Tithe?

I've decided I like Aura Shards better than Qasali Slingers just because its less CMC and harder to remove.

Have you found good value in Song of the Dryads? Enchantment speed seems to slow to stop most combo type interactions. But I guess it is temporary (once they remove the enchantment) removal of ANY permanent. What are the main things you run into? Just for Commanders because it doesn't give it back to them like an Oblivion Ring? I would say Prossh, Skyraider of Kher but he's already done his work by the time you can cast an enchantment.

Is Trailblazer's Boots really necessary with having Trample?

I understand your reasoning behind exluding Lost Leonin but really? What Commander's does your pod play, like Kaalia of the Vast running without a Master of Cruelties or Prossh, Skyraider of Kher excluding Purphoros, God of the Forge. Arahbo, Roar of the World already feels like I'm behind sitting down at most tables with Selesnya already, losing my Lost Leonin + Duelist's Heritage seems crazy! Kess, Dissident Mage will still combo me with a Labratory Maniac all the same.

I've put Rhonas the Indomitable in my build, what do you think? He gives Trample (and a small +2), but he's also a 5/5 Indestructible for (CMC3), AND with ANY cat in play he can attack deathtouch. What are you thoughts on excluding him? Because he isn't a cat?

Sol Ring?

Anyways thanks for the assistance hopefully you find something useful in my comment.

Mindashy69 on Who's the dragon? Ur The dragon!

This is quite similar to my Ur-Dreeg deck. I also highly recommend Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury. It costs just 4 mana to dash cast, which means turn 4 you're dealing 5 damage. Dash also means it is harder to remove (as it doesn't sit on the board just collecting dust with a giant target on whatever of a forehead a dragon can have), and personally, it has even won me the race 1-v-1 against Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Not to mention, you just get 3 or 4 more dragons and that's another 9 or 16 damage on top of each dragon's base power. I also highly recommend (if you aren't scared of spending lots, and I mean LOTS of money) to get Kaalia of the Vast. This girl ain't cheap, and she won't draw you cards off of Bond or Ascendancy, but every attack is a free hasty dragon. How about Balefire Dragon out and attacking turn 4 or 5 (depending on if you have a haste card that gives haste to her as a flier)? She allows you to stay in and aggressive despite any form of lacking in mana fixing. Another card you may wanna run is Vanquisher's Banner simply for the extra draw and boost in power. One last card I would say you may wanna include (this one is not necessary but fun and cute if you wanted to run it) is Arcane Adaptation. Declare dragon, now every creature you have is a dragon at all times! I see you run more non-draggies than I do, so I think that would actually benefit you more than it does for me. Just a few recommendations! All in all I love the deck and find it humorous it is so similar to the one I run! Also, love the name choice!
