Kalastria Healer Discussion

I am running something similar to this right now and I added in 3 Aethersphere Harvesters. The card has gotten a lot of flack but I feel it does a lot of work. My logic is, you rarely want to swing with your Zulaport Cutthroats or your Kalastria Healers, but tapping them to crew and gain more life is a huge plus. Plus a 3/5 flier helps a lot with some painful blocks otherwise. Check out my build at

Hi Meta, my name is Allies... It's been a while.

I recommend Captain's Claws because paired with Kalastria Healer it has massive damage and spawns allies practically every turn

Distant Melody and Tajuru Warcaller were exchanged for some 2-Drops: Oran-Rief Survivalist and Kalastria Healer.

Conspiracy+Turntimber Ranger can stop whenever you like, it's a MAY effect, if you have Kalastria Healer on board though. GG.

I Also like Captain's Claws, Retreat to Emeria & Stoneforge Masterwork.

Ok, this looks intesting. Drana's Emissary costs a little much, and needs to stay on the battlefield to have an effect, not great for winning or stalling.

You basically have two options with B/W allies at the moment- the traditional Hada Freeblade/Kazandu Blademaster/Champion of the Parish beatdown. Its pretty straightforwards, and has gained some traction running Collected Company, you'll find examples on this site listed under modern allies.

What it isn't, is budget.

I'd reccomend an etb/flicker deck, as the cards are cheaper, as the diverse common-rarity options keep the price low.

Expedition Envoy/Ondu Cleric/Jeskai Barricade/Lantern Scout/Cliffside Lookout/Cliffhaven Vampire/Kabira Evangel/Ondu War Cleric/Serene Steward/Bloodbond Vampire/Kalastria Healer/Zulaport Cutthroat as core creatures aiming to stall the game, then close out with flicker effects for a lot of etb/ltb effects.

March from the Tomb/Eerie Interlude/Rally the Anscestors/Ghostway/Momentary Blink/No Rest for the Wicked/Proclamation of Rebirth/Faith's Reward/Whip of Erebos/Flickerform/Graceful Reprieve/Return to the Ranks/Makeshift Mannequin/Marshal's Anthem/Stonecloaker to puch out in turns 5-7 with etb triggers.

Some dredge like Stinkweed Imp/Dakmor Salvage/Nightmare Void, Darkblast or Golgari Thug could help provide card advantage throught the 'yard, but would leave you grave-hate vulnerable. The main battle is going to be surviving through and battling against combo, which will always be a weak matchup- but a good sideboard could hate it out with 15 dedicated cards, or focus on other matchups and accept combo as lost.

If you're tempted to take it non-budget Fatal Push is versatile in a lot of other decklists and powerful here. For budget though, Bone Splinters will enable graveyard shenanigans.

All told, nice start and good luck tinkering. Hope this big list isn't too intimidating, almost all the effects are similar for your purpsose- just pick and choose the cheaper ones and test the proportions to make sure your hands look nice and have fun testing!

You might need more allies so that Kalastria Healer triggers more. Goblin Freerunner and it's surge cost is good.

More Vampire allies such as Cliffhaven Vampire or Bloodbond Vampire for more added effects when you gain life. If it ends up to have a bunch of allies than Kalastria Healer packs a real punch.

Oh yeah, also Drana, Liberator of Malakir and March from the Tomb can be good 1-ofs for curve toppers. I'd also recommend a little removal like Grasp of Darkness or Doom Blade or Bone Splinters (Tragic Slip is also good). And if you're taking cards out to fit these suggestions, I'd start with Kalastria Healer, Bojuka Brigand, and maybe Expedition Envoy. Good luck! and let me know if I can do anything else to help.
