Lord of the Void Discussion

Luxury Suite is off-colors for Kaalia of the Vast. An average deck is 45% , 38% , 16%. That being said, I have the "Luxury" of some expensive lands and fetches, so I don't even have Sulfurous Springs in there at the moment. It is a reasonable land though, and if you play Multi-Player, it will work great! Not for me, but I can see it in the 99.
Archfiend of Despair looks pretty good. In my specific build, he could potentially replace Lord of the Void, Rakdos the Defiler, Thundermaw Hellkite (and Reveillark combo). I would include him in the 99, doubles the damage and prevents life gain. He doesn't take over the board, but he's a good tutorable solution.

OK... lets start with the creatures. u only want big hitters or stuff that do things while entering/attacking (Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Balefire Dragon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Lord of the Void, Demonlord Belzenlok). If you want some cheap creatures play stuff like Stoneforge Mystic to get ur hexproof equipments or Mother of Runes/Grand Abolisher for protection. The small creatures you have, like Monastery Swiftspear, Knight of Infamy basically dont do anything. Anger: there are way better ways to give ur stuff haste.Serra Angel: doesnt do enough.- The Manabase is fine. u can allways upgrade it with some shock or fetch lands, maybe Nomad Outpost, Path of Ancestry .- Boros Signet, Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet are pretty much must have.- As for removal spells, try to go for unconditional stuff like Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking. Also try to get in at least one mass revival like Primevals' Glorious Rebirth, Faith's Reward can be game ending after an board wipe.- You also want some haste givers like Dragon Tempest or Fervor.- The most important thing for this kind of deck is to keep ur commander around. Whispersilk Cloak is fine, but the boots are cheaper and also give haste Swiftfoot Boots Lightning Greaves.- Another important thing is card draw. u already have Rune-Scarred Demon, but its by far not enough. Bloodgift Demon, Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence is pretty much my first tutor target in almost every game, Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor. there are also cheaper alternatives like Diabolic Tutor.- Just look around other kaalia decks and see what theyre doing and of course playtest alot.

You commented some really helpful thoughts onto my Golgari Deck so I thought I'd return the favor.
Plus, who can forget our favorite demon Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Love the concept! Never seen this idea which is kinda strange because its amazing. Definitely a +1!

Great work here! I really like the strategy and the list! Since you're playing some fatties as win cons and especially Lord of the Void, why not play in The Mimeoplasm? Best case reanimate him with smth like It That Betrays and the Lord for extra power, or even make it a Muldrotha with huge power for commander damage! You already have protection and haste with Lightning Greaves so you could look into that. One other thing to note is that Ground Seal works well with Muldrotha as you don't target to cast, but it doesn't work with target reanimate spells (e.g. Reanimate, Animate Dead), so please tell me how it works for you.
Also, feel free to check out my Muldrotha list for ideas as well. Happy brewing!
P.S. mentioning the art deserves a +1 by itself

I didn't see Panharmonichron, nor Ulamog.
Potential cuts Show
Archfiend of Depravity - Only really effective against token decks. 5 drops should be more impactful.
Lord of the Void - Costs a lot for an ability dependent on damage. 7 mana should be
Bane of the Living - With no other morph creatures, the morph part will be irrelevant as your group will know what it is. Moreover, you have more efficient kill spells
Marionette Master - Not sure what the purpose of him is, am I missing something?
Forced March - Much better removal (unless token decks are in your meta)
In Garruk's Wake - Much better removal, 9 mana should WIN GAMES, no clear boards.
Silence the Believers - I'm assuming this is the card you would remove for Vraska's Contempt? And 4 mana removal is pretty costly. Even though you can exile and potentially have multiple targets, I find it too costly. I understand your deck has some good ramping in there, but you should have a more efficient kill spell
Curse of Disturbance - Never help your opponents, even if it is a political card.
Let me know what you think of those.
Other cards to consider Show
Imp's Mischief - Let's say you cast your commander for 20 and someone just counterspells. Well GUESS WHAT, they can SHOVE that counterspell into the graveyard because you can use imp's mischief to change the target of the counterspell to imp's mischief, leaving the original spell to resolve. It's also very political, and no one expects the black player to have it. Every black deck should have one to deal with blue. Speaking of blue....
Mana Web - Something to maybe consider depending on how much blue you have in the meta. This with urborg makes opponents think twice between holding up a counterspell or advancing their board state (barring mana rocks and dorks). It's saved me many times.
Bitterblossom - Bodies for defense against early aggro and flying. Also works very well with...
Contamination - Because who needs friends? Also see reassembling skeleton
I'm lit like a christmas tree right now so I hope everything made sense. Let me know what you think

no need for giving up black mana with a Forest for Bloodbond March when Woodland Cemetery and Overgrown Tomb exist. That's plenty green spread for one green mana needed, for a recurring effect. That should be a 3 or 4 of though should it go in.
Other fun things you could diversify to. Diversity is fun when you're tutoring the demon you want anyway.
Demon of Dark Schemes
Dictate of Erebos
Herald of Anguish

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Nice Gonti list!
I have two main thoughts, 1) Your curve is really high: I wonder if some of the top end stuff could be cut. 2) Can you find more ways to ramp up the ETB abuse? More reanimation seems like it would be a natural fit.
I wonder if you could cut a couple of your top end creatures, specifically Sheoldred, Whispering One and Lord of the Void. I love both of these creatures and they are incredibly strong, but they also don't really synergize with your blink/recursion/etb abuse engines. Gonti wants to enter the battlefield over and over again during the game, so every other creature that wants the same thing just boots the overall synergy and flexibility of the list. As far as mid level stuff, do you think Minion Reflector is necessary given that you already run stuff like Blade of Selves, Panharmonicon, Conjurer's Closet, and Strionic Resonator? It seems like the most mana intensive of the "etb copy" effects you run and may not be missed all that much?
Voltaic Key? This one is pretty random, but you do have quite a few artifacts that like tapping. It makes your Sol Rings tap for 3, or Gilded Lotus tap for 5, and lets you really abuse cards like Strionic Resonator and Mimic Vat. Maybe there isn't enough synergy there, but it could be interesting. If you do go that rout why not toss in a Basalt Monolith as well for some extra ramp?
For additional reanimation I really like Necromancy a lot. Being able to get ANY creature from ANY grave at instant speed is VERY strong. Also, Corpse Dance could be an interesting, reusable effect, especially if most of your creatures consist of ETB value guys.
