Maralen of the Mornsong Discussion

Since you have Thorn of the Black Rose, how about Throne of the High City? Also Geier Reach Sanitarium as another huggy card, it also can be brutal with Maralen of the Mornsong.

Not much, but Psychogenic Probe combos nicely with Maralen of the Mornsong + Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, essentially ending the game, and it's pretty easy to etch with Maralen. Only problem is that it hits you to, and 5 damage per turn doesn't sound nice.

I try not to make radical suggestions like this, but this might work better as a Nath of the Gilt-Leaf deck...

The first question I ask of any player using Maralen of the Mornsong, though, is how do you prevent people from fetching for their combo pieces or answers to your boardstate? I know you play a lot of discard, but it's almost all at sorcery speed. What keeps them from tutoring for things, then casting them immediately? You have very little removal here, and what you do have is sub-par.

Interesting take on Kaalia of the Vast, fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

I'm guessing this is more from a duel commander (since it's called 1v1)? Does it seem to control a 4-pod as well, or just nope?

Dragon Mage would seem to fit your Wheel of Fortune + Reforge the Soul

What about Sire Of Insanity with a Necropotence he can be a Demon.

An interesting Synergy that I play in my deck, sort of fits your idea of card denial is Stranglehold + Maralen of the Mornsong. PS or an Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Needs a Sol Ring, not sure whose mana sourcing you copied, but WTF. Sacred Foundry also appears to be missing.

Swiftfoot Boots, Path to Exile, Boros Charm all good cards, but not inline with your ideas.

Griselbrand is banned for Commander play.

Reanimate is a CMC 1 unburial, would be superstar with this deck if you discard let's say a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight or something on turn 1 with a turn 2 Sol Ring + Lightning Greaves + Reanimate, could think of other nastiness there too, Sire Of Insanity turn 2?

Just some ideas.

Nice build. +1. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

I would run a Boros Charm and probably a Crucible of Worlds with Armageddon and Ravages of War.

Path to Exile is an inexpensive control.

Maralen of the Mornsong has an interesting synergy with your Stranglehold and is inline with your shut-down flavor of this deck.

Solid preliminary Kaalia of the Vast build +1. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player, Kaalia, the Purifier

I have lots of discussions and such on this commander in my deck descriptions if your interested in reading.

Don't see anything obvious your missing, I like the Boros Charm since removing a Kaalia of the Vast board is often a common recurrence and also the modular nature of it.

Mother of Runes is a nice 1 drop that can protect Kaalia of the Vast or a big control angel like Iona, Shield of Emeria

Since your running a Stranglehold a Maralen of the Mornsong has a fun synergy that I enjoy.

You have a good strong complement of beaters and control, my concern would be in a pod of 4, you don't have a mid-range bail out of the Kaalia of the Vast isn't getting it done alone. Something like a Worldgorger Dragon or a Crucible of Worlds or what I use which is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.

Kaalia of the Vast can draw a lot of threat early, might be tough to beat through a 3 opponent pod without an alternative win-con built in.

I'd say it's because Maralen of the Mornsong is too weak since it gives your opponents a tutor before you get one, meaning you likely won't get one.
