This looks loads of fun, but you might be playing it at the wrong time. It's almost guaranteed that your opponent has graveyard hate, given decks which use; Stinkweed Imp , Bloodghast , Living End , Vengevine , Hooting Mandrills , Arclight Phoenix , Flamewake Phoenix , Bedlam Reveler , Striped Riverwinder and more all exist.

Rest in Peace and Leyline of the Void are the big hate cards, but Nihil Spellbomb , Relic of Progenitus , Tormod's Crypt or Ravenous Trap are all options people use too. Basically the graveyard is being hated on...

You might be better playing like the spirits aggro list with; Supreme Phantom Selfless Spirit and Spell Queller and switch to the Mortal Combat / Iname, Death Aspect plan from the sideboard, if you did that I'd also stick Nether Traitor in for either, free hits or removal bait. On its own Nether Traitor won't warrant the grave hate so hopefully your opponent sides it out. Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

Hey Asder,

Thanks for your suggestions on my deck Vannifar&Kiki's devotted PØD

I think that Restore Balance can be a secundary plan for this deck, because you normally have few lands, creatures, and the discard effect help you to put some BiG-Creature on the graveyard for Living End .

Greets,

I LOVE Kaya, being a vorthos. The card's personality is abounding and it's gonna help a lot against my friend's Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck. ... and his Feldon of the Third Path deck. Aaand his Living End deck in modern.

My friend likes using the graveyard.

Major props for this deck. I am and edh player at heart but this is a deck I plan on building. The only changes I would make would be add a sac outlet that gives you value like Greater Good or Thermopod. These would be for when you go to play Living End but have creatures on the board (sac all of them, get value, put them right back). I especially like Greater Good because it could instantly fill up your grave and draw into more answers and such.

You're a bit into the wrong color for self-sacrifice style play. And going by your description, Death's Shadow sounds like it'd be up your alley. A reason for you to hurt yourself while also being the big thing that kills the opponent.

Cards like Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Eternal Witness, Shriekmaw, Reveillark, Mulldrifter, Find / Finality, Golgari Findbroker, Lotleth Giant, Unburial Rites, Living End, are all relatively decent with the whole sacrifice theme

Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Hi UR2L8,

Yes life is a premium, paying life to go fast. Will see how Toxic Deluge goes or if it can't be cast when needed.

Children of Korlis was fabulous in my Alesha, Who Smiles at Death because I could recur him, much life Selfless Spirit. Lately I've been thinking I need Selfless Spirit and Hatred in here as well.

Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul/Dragon Mage/Wheel of Fate/Chandra Ablaze/Magus of the Wheel are all viable. I play more Orzhov () and splash the Mardu , so usually I won't be pulling too many read lands with fetches. Also, with a Liliana's Caress type build or a Surveil/Dredge and true Reanimator Living Death/Living End type builds it would be very powerful.

In my build, I always feel like once I get Kaalia of the Vast stabilized where I can start dropping the A/D/D from my hand, when I would Dragon Mage to recharge, it would just give my opponents a solution to whatever, Iona, Shield of Emeria or Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Etc., instead of trying to slow the board state down. I just feel this is better suited to a Nekusar, the Mindrazer or Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or The Locust God, Etc. type Commander.

Probably could make it effective in a true reanimator with Sire Of Insanity and Liliana's Caress (type effects, draw/discard) though.

I'm unsure about Mausoleum Secrets (Situational/Late game), similar feelings towards Gamble (-1 card advantage and randomness) and Beseech the Queen (Situational/Late game). I think Mausoleum Secrets would be good with Selfless Spirit and Children of Korlis in the deck though. Hmm. I will play test it a bit, see how effective it is.

Batwing Brume is okay, I'm not sure it makes the cut, not really synergistic. Holy Day is still there too, and Angel's Grace can combo easily with a few different spells, so both feel better.

Angelic Arbiter isn't great against some decks like, Izzet () or Grixis (+) but against commanders like Xenagos, God of Revels or any Haste Commander builds actually, or Blightsteel Colossus. Since we get attacked quite a bit too, it also helps mitigate lots of that damage. Like do you want to cast Cultivate or attack with those 3/3's or whatever, do you want to swing your infect and cast nothing this turn? He's been good, won't replace him anytime soon.

Blacksagres on Ayli Clerics

Wow, what a fantastic feedback, thanks!

As you mentioned, I deliberately left out the Blood Combo (Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond. I don't plan to take the deck so far with winning combos yet.

My group is somewhat casual and we agreed of keeping combos like that out, at least for now. :)

With that in mind, I'll probably leave Daru Spiritualist and Shaman en-Kor out as well. Those cards don't add anything when alone, I guess. And with the lack of tutors, they can easily be useless during the game.

Had absolutely no idea that Lifeline was a card, will get that one for sure. For now, I'm playing Debtors' Knell. It's a lot slower, but will have to do it for now until I get the more powerful pieces.

Love Beacon of Immortality, by playing Greed I can profit a lot from that.

Patriarch's Bidding will be included for sure, as for Living End I'm playing Living Death instead.

Again, thanks for your suggestions. Will adjust my list accordingly!

Gadianten on Ayli Clerics

I have made cleric deck my self with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim as the original commander but generally found Ravos and Tymna better due to card draw. That said there are some recommendations I have found from personal experience with Ayli you may find helpful. I generally found I had two main issues with the deck and it was gaining enough life quickly to bring Ayli online and then having enough bodies to act as fodder for said ability. With that in mind I will try and make suggestions that generally forward those causes.

Lifeline, I cant recommend this enough it does EVERYTHING your commander wants, while it may allow for opponents to benefit at first, reaching the magical 50 life exile enabler for your commander is easy then you can start exiling the problems. As an added note you can use things like Fiend Hunter or Containment Priest to keep your opponents from taking advantage of it, just sac Containment Priest in response to the Lifeline triggers to prevent your self from getting hosed.

Patriarch's Bidding and Living End are also pretty good recursion.

I assume your exclusion of Exquisite Blood with Sanguine Bond in the deck is intentional, if its not I would add it as its a win combo. If you choose to not add in Exquisite Blood then Beacon of Immortality can be quite funny when added to Sanguine Bond.

Exsanguinate is an excellent addition alongside the Debt to the Deathless you have in there and will help make it easier to bring your commanders removal online while weakening others.

Heliod's Pilgrim with Gift of Immortality is a nice way to fuel your commander and generally helpful.

Remorseful Cleric Excellent graveyard removal and in tribe.

Conspiracy should be added to go with Rotlung Reanimator as all your creatures become clerics including tokens. This means you can sac tokens to make more tokens, in short its one of the holy grail's your commander wants for sacrificial fodder.

Custodi Soulcaller decent aggressive in tribe low cmc reanimation. I would also consider Sun Titan as the reanimation is very useful even if its not in tribe.

Skirsdag High Priest, sacrifice something make a 5/5 flyer once a turn seems helpful.

Evangel of Heliod I have had missed results in the past but it does provide tokens, though including an Elspeth, Sun's Champion is probably a better idea.

Also, as you are gaining a lot of life you might consider things such as Greed and Necropotence to synergize with your strategy and get you cards.
