Spirits on Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

3 weeks ago

Hi psamtek,

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.

I know you said no demons but one of my favorites is Lord of the Void. Avatar of Woe and Noxious Gearhulk are also really good.

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.

Any other fatties like Dread Cacodemon or cheap tricks with Extractor Demon, Lord of the Void, or Reaper from the Abyss

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!

Crav96 on Muldrotha: Recursion, Reanimation, Repeat

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

Let me know what you think of those.

Other cards to consider Show

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.

Carnifex Demon
Pestilence Demon
Abyssal Persecutor
Demon of Dark Schemes
Extractor Demon
Grave Pact
Dictate of Erebos
Havoc Demon
Herald of Anguish
Lord of the Void
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Westvale Abbey  Flip
Overseer of the Damned
Rune-Scarred Demon
Shadowborn Demon

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?

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed seems like it could be absurd in this deck, but it's definitely not cheap. I think Mike could probably replace Cauldron of Souls if/when you get one.

With your big mana finishers, I definitely think Ashnod's Altar would be really good in here. And if you are going to be sacrificing creatures... why not get Skullclamp and draw all the cards?

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.
