Ob Nixilis, Unshackled Discussion
2 days ago
Avacyn, Angel of Hope is pretty much a staple in Kaalia builds since the deck is so soft to removal. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is also super good for a deck that can cheat her out, as she basically makes opponent life totals 20, which is much more manageable in Commander for dealing combat damage.
You really need repeatable methods of drawing more cards than you have, especially those that come down before Kaalia hits the battlefield or that can be used after her and without her. Phyrexian Arena still provides 1 card per turn for a measly cost of 1/40th your life total. Bloodgift Demon is similar in effect but can actually be cast without Kaalia if you have trouble sticking her, which can be invaluable when your opponents have removal.
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is a reasonably strong demon without a huge price tag, and I'd recommend him over Goldnight Redeemer.
Also, bread and butter Kaalia plays is turn 3 Kaalia, turn 4 Armageddon, swing Kaalia, put a huge demon or angel into play. I recommend looking into that, as Kaalia decks are incredibly easy to stop if opponents have access to their mana sources.

Looking nice so far!! Here are some suggestions from my experience, fellow Kaalia player :)
As far as creatures go, pretty much just play the ones you like!
Some less-budget suggestions: Master of Cruelties, pretty much instant kill if they have no blockers. Rune-Scarred Demon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Aurelia, the Warleader, Lord of the Void, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Gisela, the Broken Blade. Those are some of my favorites. A little heavier on the budget but super fun!
Mid-budget options: Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Platinum Angel, Anya, Merciless Angel, Mana-Charged Dragon, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Angel of Despair, Mother of Runes, Deathless Angel, Hellkite Tyrant, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Blinding Angel, Overseer of the Damned, Akroma, Angel of Fury.
More budget-friendly options: Angel of Serenity, Angelic Arbiter, Indulgent Tormentor, Reya Dawnbringer, Harvester of Souls, Bloodgift Demon, Exquisite Archangel, Herald of the Host (For multiplayer), Angelic Skirmisher, Bruna, the Fading Light (to pair with Gisela), Seraph of the Sword, Guardian of the Gateless.
There are obviously numerous options as far as creatures go. Those are a couple of mine. But don't go off just what other people say- if you don't like the feel of killing someone outright with Master of Cruelties, don't get him! If you want to play a little more defensive you can run Seraph of the Sword and Guardian of the Gateless or something! Just play what you want to! :)
Not really sure about the curses. I personally probably wouldn't run them, but they seem fun!
Dragon Tempest is a good include. Give all your fliers haste!
You definitely want ramp, and I see you have some. The appropriate signets, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, probably the cluestones (They can draw you cards, which is usually more useful than getting a small creature until end of turn, as with the keyrunes).
If you're going to spend a little more, the check lands like Clifftop Retreat and Dragonskull Summit are great. Scry lands such as Temple of Malice and be very useful. Obviously fetchlands and shocklands are good, but not friendly to the budget at all. I don't think they're worth it sometimes. But everything is up to you! :)
Hopefully these suggestions help! I've said it a lot, but play whatever you think will be the most fun for you! Good luck in the building process- I'll be following along to see how it goes! :)

Thanks for the tips. So, just to ask, making it more "creature heavy" isn't a good choice? I mean some cards like Ob Nixilis, Unshackled or something like Demigod of Revenge are too slow? Sinkhole is an interesting addition that I didn't know. Thanks for adivices I keep looking after them since I'm quite noob :)
