Kambal, Consul of Allocation Discussion

Hey Emensmansera - thanks for the suggestions! I think that Tainted Remedy, while certainly an interesting card, isn't necessarily what this iteration of Licia is trying to do. Temporal Extortion I do find interesting, but it is somewhat difficult to cast and oftentimes just domes someone for a bunch of damage which feels just OK. Kambal, Consul of Allocation would be totally sweet if it was a spells matters effect that let us trigger it, but I think as is it is a little more incremental than this particular list wants to be. Sorin Markov is super sweet, and definitely makes killing our foes trivial, but the deck has limited room for high drops. Thanks for the suggestions!
Hey SurpriZe! That's an excellent question, and a well put question that really got me thinking. I think the mana base is probably the furthest off from the ideal case - I would of course include ABRU Duals if I owned them, for one thing, and likewise would include probably 5 total fetches if I had access to Marsh Flats and Arid Mesa. Most importantly, I would include Fetid Heath and Rugged Prairie filter lands that can filter black or red into white, because they would significantly improve our combo turns with that capability. I would also consider adding a Maze of Ith, as I've always felt that defensive "spells" in land slots is a powerful way to hold down the fort.
I think that most would make the argument that this deck needs more tutors. Diabolic Intent might fit, although the creature count is low which can be challenging. The one tutor I would strongly consider is Imperial Seal, otherwise I personally like playing somewhat tutor light.
Ultimately, this deck is evolving pretty much every week. I've never had a more challenging deck building experience than trying to tune this storm list. I'm sure that in a month there will be another 10 cards coming in and out of the deck.

Yeah its dynamite, I barely won against it in a best 3 out of 5 match up, once the deck takes off, unless you have a boardwipe, youre done. I did find however that Kambal, Consul of Allocation, and Gideon's Intervention naming Anointed Procession does work out well against it.

Nice to see someone else using Kambal, Consul of Allocation, he's worked wonders for my reanimator deck cuz we suck shit against control. Really liking the cycling tech, I was using Angel of Condemnation instead of the cycling angel, but I think that may change lol.

I don't want to go too far from your vision with suggestions, because I would pull you away from a token strategy and go more towards a life gain as a weapon/ sac combo strategy. Either way you go, I would cut cards that are just straight life gain, maybe some of the really conditional token generators, and maybe just one of those mana rocks.
Either way, sweet build so far.

I do like the Kambal, Consul of Allocation idea though.
Thanks again for the input!

I like the deck, and the creature spread overall seems quite nice. Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond seem a little slow, though. As far as replacements go, Kambal, Consul of Allocation seems amazing for your build. I also second the Tithe Drinker recommendation from ZendikariWol. Gifted Aetherborn also seems like he's worth a look, though I understand he's a bit expensive for a playset - if he's too expensive, maybe Vampire Nighthawk?

You might want to look into Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Suture Priest, Congregate and Crested Sunmare for lifegain. You might also want to add some protection like Banishing Light, Oblivion Ring, Pacifism or Path of Bravery
