Nomad Outpost Discussion
1 week ago
I also recently built a Kaalia deck as my first EDH deck, mine could still use a little fine tuning but I might be able to help you out a bit.
I would agree with the cards that you have on order and the ones that you are trying to replace except maybe Nomad Outpost. If you do want to replace it you could alternatively use Command Tower which would produce the same colour mana but would not come in tapped. I would suggest some more tutor cards, eg. Diabolic Tutor and Beseech the Queen, and some more draw cards may be useful. For example, Damnable Pact, Read the Bones and Tormenting Voice. Some more board wipes may also be useful, eg. Descend upon the Sinful, Hour of Revelation and Fumigate.
I hope this helps, if you would like any more specific comments or suggestions let me know. :)

Welcome to commander! Info dump incoming. Take or leave anything you see here, because some of it is my personal opinion.
For mana base, you can go for the expensive "shocklands" (Sacred Foundry, Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt), which are some of the best options around. Transguild Promenade, Nomad Outpost, and Terramorphic Expanse are more cheap options to fix your mana, even if they're a bit slow. Commander's Sphere can be used to fix mana, accelerate, and can be turned into a card later on, while Chromatic Lantern makes your mana base issues irrelevant. Burnished Hart ramps and fixes mana by getting basics. Really, once you have a decent spread of multi-mana producers, you should be fine on mana. I've rarely had issues, and I play four-color.
For utility, I'll always recommend Solemn Simulacrum, because it's just so good. I'd also advise Phyrexian Arena, Bloodgift Demon, and Underworld Connections for sheer card advantage, as well as Erebos, God of the Dead. Beacon of Unrest is just good and versatile. Karmic Guide isn't super splashy, but she can bring back anything you need to, giving you a bit of resilience. (I also endorse Reveillark because I love recursion, but that's just me.)
As for dragons and other big boys, Utvara Hellkite is splashy and hilarious, as is Bogardan Hellkite. Balefire Dragon punishes big boards, Hellkite Tyrant steals good stuff, and Scourge of the Throne can help you make mincemeat of a table. Akroma, Angel of Wrath is also a goodie, as well as Angel of Serenity and Aurelia, the Warleader. Razia, Boros Archangel and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight can both be good. For demons, Rakdos the Defiler can nuke someone's board. He enters the battlefield attacking, so you can dodge the first cost and make someone else pay the price. Demon of Dark Schemes might kill Kaalia, but the energy you get can often fuel bringing her back, as well as some other nasty goodies from your graveyard.
Plus, general EDH tips, you're gonna want to wipe the board. Someone's gonna get out of hand, and there'll be tons of stuff with some sort of protection. Things like Blasphemous Act, Fumigate, Wrath of God can help even the odds if you slip behind. For spot removal, exiling stuff is amazing. Oblivion Ring is cheap, but if you have a bit of money, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Utter End, and suchlike can save your biscuits. Pack a bit of enchantment/artifact removal, like Orim's Thunder and Wear so that you can take out problem spots.
...that's a lot of suggestions, but you can take or leave them. Any of them can help improve the deck, but they're not needed. Build for your playstyle, and if something's powerful but not fun, make it fun. Personally, I like to check out Magiccards.info when building a deck, because you can use a bunch of toggles for advanced search (or even type them straight into the search bar if you learn the commands), and it also shows the expected price.
Always happy to help a new EDH player. Welcome to the format.

I had a big card supply recently, so let's rebuild the deck.
out Saheeli Rai
out Felidar Guardian
This was wincon "just because I can" and "why not". It even worked sometimes. Separately these cards are not much useful (though I've played the last Saheeli's ability several times and won with another combos), especially considering they are not artifacts and cannot be tutored by Arcum Dagsson or protected by Darksteel Forge and Padeem. So, in order to add many new cards I decided to pick off this combo. I wouldn't want to take it far away though.
out Sanctum Gargoyle
out Chromatic Star
out Junk Diver
out Filigree Sages
out Shimmer Myr
Some of these cards I'll maybe return later.
Finally I got 'em!
The bridge makes a combo with Unwinding Clock (and sometimes with Clock of Omens) while I have a lot of mana artifacts. I can tutor a permanent onto the battlefield every turn - my and each of my opponent's. I can search for a combo, or I can just make fun and search for different interesting artifacts. With Vedalken Orrery I could do almost all other things (except for activating Planeswalkers abilities and attacking) in the end of every opponent's turn (or in response, of course). It comes instead of Shimmer Myr, because he's much more vulnerable and doesn't let me to cast noncreature spells as instants. The ability cost is quite expensive and can hardly be activated as the Bridge comes into play, but I hope the Bridge combo or the Bridge itself will work as I imagine it to myself =)
in Wrath of God
The second thing I wanted to add to my deck. Just mass removal spells.
The problem is that I can't just clean the table in the turn I need it. And I need it - since I make random-turn-combos, not war. Nevinyrral's Disk and Scourglass are very slow - the Disk enters tapped (though it can be untapped by Clock of Omens, Tezzeret the Seeker , or even using Time Sieve), Scourglass can be used only during my upkeep. I also would like to put Oblivion Stone in the deck as I get this card, but it just too mush mana-expensive to immediately blow up the table. Finally, the Disk and the Stone destroy my own noncreature artifacts, which is unpleasant. So, I decided to add several spells of this sort. Just to destroy all creatures - now.
Let's see how this strongly-required-in-artifacts-deck card will work.
That was the only card I found that allows to draw cards for casting an artifact or for the artifact ETB trigger.
out Nomad Outpost
out Sequestered Stash (I can hardly remember I played this land's ability)
out Rupture Spire (I just hate this card! Enters tapped and eats one mana...)
in Blood Crypt
in Steam Vents
I'm thinking about lands too. I've also got Windswept Heath, but at the moment I have only one white dual land (Prairie Stream), so I should gather more shocklands before.Oh, it's quite hard to think what land I need to tutor with the fetchland, considering I have only several shocks in the deck... I always forget what lands are in the deck now.

The answer to all those questions is very simple.
I hated the stupid wedges and was glad to see the end of them.
Although Nomad Outpost was useful for my Mardu Allies.

Interesting idea, and with almost all of your creatures possessing flying, you could get some serious use out of Subterranean Tremors. Also, one of the Takir tri-lands may help you. Nomad Outpost. I'd suggest replacing Esper Panorama. I'm not entirely sure if that's legal in a commander deck of different colours, but either way with Nomad Outpost, you're going to get full benefit from it.

Welcome to Magic! Some quick suggestions to start you on your way- this deck is not Standard, Standard is only the most recent sets, and most of these cards are not in Standard. I'd change the format to Casual.
Second, 18 lands aren't nearly enough, especially for your curve. For most decks, you're going to want around 22 or 23 lands, and running 3 colors makes it even more difficult. Nomad Outpost is slow, but will tap for all 3 colors and is budget friendly.
Thirdly, I'd suggest adding some one-drops in because having something to play on turn each turn is vital to magic. Might I suggest Expedition Envoy?
You're on your way! Keep it up and tag me if you have any questions I can help you with.

In term's of your manabase there are so many way's you could improve it, depending on how much money you want to spend.
Some cheap (and really good) cards would be: Nomad Outpost, Scoured Barrens, Wind-Scarred Crag and Bloodfell Caves, Rakdos Guildgate, Boros Guildgate and Orzhov Guildgate to name a few. Even though these enter tapped it doesn't affect you that much since commander is a slower format. Isolated Chapel is a tad more expensive but would complete the cycle of checklands you're already running.
These are just some basic tips that a relatively budget however if you're willing to spend more there are better lands you could use but I'd say these and the bare minimum for a three colour deck to ensure you run well. I'd just cut some of the basic lands and replace them with these no worries.
