Kalastria Healer Discussion

@ROUROU (fight the power), I can at least respect Captain's Claws enough to try and own them, I do not at the moment, and I think I can at least try and playtest it in the correct scenario, but the biggest reservation is that they are indeed Kor Ally and not Human, which isn't the worst thing, but it also leans itself to a kind of grindy game.
Overall not directed at anyone in particular but I do believe there are unexplored combinations of Allies and Humans that might care more about color combinations or even value spells that would fit more in the themes of midrange, aristocrats/Rally the Ancestors where Kalastria Healer and Zulaport Cutthroat support that, game that lean themselves to more of that grind.

Okay, there are a couple different routes you can go then. You can go with a sort of re-animator theme with cards like Rally the Ancestors, March from the Tomb, Immortal Servitude, Return to the Ranks, and Dawn. If you then combo these cards with things like Cliffhaven Vampire, and Ondu Cleric it can wind up raking up a lot of damage. For example, if you cast a Rally the Ancestors on 3 and return to play 2 Ondu Clerics, 1 Cliffhaven Vampire, 1 Kalastria Healer, and 1 Hada Freeblade, you wind up doing 20 damage to your opponent, gain 55 life, and wind up with a 5/6 Hada Freeblade for the turn. This style of deck would be interested in pretty much just using all your allies as blockers and looting through your deck as fast as you can so you can cast your re-animator spells for massive value. There is also the option of introducing some sacrifice elements like Viscera Seer with Zulaport Cutthroat in conjunction with Rally the Ancestors to further pump your damage output, kill your allies to prevent the exile trigger from rally, and scry into more combo pieces.

I might make it into a modern deck depending on how much time I have while working on my other decks.
This deck usually went 3-1 and 2-2 at tournaments at my LGS. I always loved Grasp of Darkness against Delirium decks (This was AER-AKH standard at the time) and my opponents' faces when they flipped into an Abolisher of Bloodlines and I had two Cliffhaven Vampires and a Zulaport Cutthroat on the field.

The CMC of General Tazri is irrelevant. You just get Food Chain out and Eternal Scourge and you have infinite mana. Then cast General Tazri searching for Kalastria Healer or any other wincon ally. Then recast Tazri until you win.

I would honestly replace Underworld Coinsmith and Kalastria Healer with Suture Priest and Kambal, Consul of Allocation. You have way more creatures than you do enchantments, plus with Suture Priest you don't have to pay mana for the effect. You might also want to look into Chalice of Life Flip, Ajani's Pridemate, Syndic of Tithes, Read the Bones, Odric, Lunarch Marshal (he doesn't give everyone extort, but he will give them flying and lifelink, which is okay because you've added Pontiff of Blight

Have you ever thought of putting Kalastria Healer in here? It basically serves as a 2 point life swing for EVERY ALLY that comes on the board, which can add up quick with a deck like urs. Also, getting black wouldnt be hard because of all the mana fixing u have in here.
