Coat of Arms for massive, massive zombies.

Bad Moon for a small boost.

Magus of the Coffers for another Crypt Ghast/Cabal Coffer Variant.

Vesuva and Thespian's Stage to copy Cabal Coffers.

Expedition Map to get that Cabal Coffers.

Lightning Greaves for a better Swiftfoot Boots.

Maybe some more removal?

FaithfulCorpse on Ayli, Clerical Errors

Hetteshkane Thank you for the input! Since putting this deck up on Tappedout I've sleeved and played it online pretty extensively, so I'm getting a much better feel for how the deck runs and also a few of the weaknesses.

So to answer to some card choices and dis-inclusions, I've neglected the various Life = Damage cards because I feel like those paint far too large a target on my head to be worth running, where unless I can kill a player that very turn, some amount of attention is going to be turned towards me. Along that same note, Extort tends to be a nice mechanic, but it doesn't stray into wincon territory, at least in my eyes.

Erebos, God of the Dead is an interesting thought, one that I hadn't put my thinking towards when I constructed the deck, providing a means of ramping life away from opponents and turning my life gain into card advantage. I'll be considering it.

Lastly Daru Spiritualist and Tree of Perdition provide a few important things.

Daru Spiritualist is essential to an infinite life gain combo featuring either Shaman en-Kor Or Lightning Greaves while Tree of Perdition provides a way to swerve around Pillowfort decks, and to Sac to Ayli afterwards, netting me massive lifegain all at once, which tends to make activating Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim 's second ability much more reliable, as a bonus, it's recurrable with the Dawn portion of Dusk / Dawn

I'll be looking tp update how the deck has evolved in the next few days, so please keep an eye out!

I have a finely tuned Varolz deck that you can check out if you want, but I'll make some more budgeted suggestions.

Nature's Claim is much better than Natural State especially if you're going to kill with infect/general damage.

Check out Vector Asp, Glistener Elf, Plague Stinger, and Viridian Corrupter for cheap, but effective scavenge targets. Be warned that infect strategies wont make you any friends, but it's an effective way to use Varolz. There's also Tainted Strike and Phyresis (works great with Thrun, the Last Troll!) if you scavenge onto non-infect creatures.

Creatures that are good for scavenging (other thank Phyrexian Dreadnought and Death's Shadow):

A good way to get those creatures into your graveyard is to use Buried Alive.

Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are good with Varolz. Remember to scavenge BEFORE you equip if you're using Lightning Greaves because of shroud.

I recommend as many tutors as you can afford. Diabolic Tutor is pretty affordable.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are really good with Varolz (remember to scavenge BEFORE you equip if you use the greaves because of Shroud)

In this case, I mentioned Lightning Greaves over Swiftfoot Boots due to its 0 mana equip cost. However, Swiftfoot Boots can work equally as well, especially with the already present Puresteel Paladin. After a bit of reading through the rulings, I did just notice that Shroud would be detrimental to the equip effect. Although you could bypass shroud by unequipping, your opponents could as well. In this case Swiftfoot Boots would be a much better choice!

Spirits on Another Big Dumb Kaalia Deck

Hey nice initial build, +1, fellow Kaalia of the Vast player, Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

You should include a secondary win-con into the deck, the standard Kaalia of the Vast is Crucible of Worlds + Armageddon + Ravages of War + Command Beacon + Strip Mine + Wasteland. Others are Worldgorger Dragon and/or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker which is the one I play. It's too hard to deal 40 damage to all 3 players, especially with your board position, it pulls attention of the other decks, even though the others may be driving toward their win-con combos.

Dragon Tempest has been really nice, CMC 2 Haste which is what Kaalia of the Vast needs, even more than protection. Without haste it will be a tough go.

Mother of Runes is a nice cheap re-usable protection as well.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is awesome, miss Phyrexia/Innistrad, but she isn't an A/D/D so tough to cast her. She will be too slow, albeit very controlling.

You have Brave the Sands use Angelic Field Marshal spot for something else. Maybe an Exquisite Archangel to hit the reset life button, or a Baneslayer Angel to lifelink who can be cast without Kaalia of the Vast, maybe Angelic Arbiter/Linvala, Keeper of Silence if you like the control aspect, or a Grand Abolisher which protect Kaalia of the Vast during your turn, which especially combos nice with the Haste.

I think Sheoldred, Whispering One again is someone that's not working with your overall game plan. The Praetors are way too awesome, but they are going to be far too slow for what you need to accomplish with Kaalia of the Vasts bar-brawl style of aggro play.

Sword of Feast and Famine works good with Hellkite Charger or an Aggravated Assault.

Steelshaper's Gift can pull a Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots which is better than a Hammer of Purphoros.

Citadel Siege is a little slow, your guys are already pretty big, not sure it's worth the 1 blocker tap-down.

Really cool, love Kaalia of the Vast, the mana will take a while but slowly work on it. Cheers.

Oh, I forgot all about Netherborn Phalanx. that's perfect! I have a few ways to transmute it over and over again if necessary too. I'll probably put Expedition Map in there as well, I don't really think I need both Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots anyway.
