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! :)

You may want to stay away from enchantment Auras, as they can get 2-for-1ed pretty easily. Gift of Immortality is great though, as it can come back to the field. Maybe opt for equipments instead, such as Fireshrieker in place of Battle Mastery and Prowler's Helm (which I see you have) or Whispersilk Cloak, which has the added benefit of shroud. Spectra Ward is a pretty good Aura, as it gives protection from all colors, making whichever creature (supposedly Kaalia) free to attack and block, without taking any damage. But again if someone plays Day of Judgment, it'll get 2-for-1ed.

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!

That being said you might want to not have too many at all. Mainly equipment to protect Kaalia, like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Mask of Avacyn or equipment of the like.

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).

You have quite a bit of removal which can be good! Sometimes you can have too much though, and that is occasionally my problem. You have some good target removal and a couple good board wipes. I have Earthquake in my deck, although I haven't found it super useful yet. Merciless Eviction, Hallowed Burial, Planar Cleansing, akroma's wrath, Fumigate, and maybe even Torment of Hailfire are good. But as with creatures, there are tons of options for board wipes.
Land bases can be pretty rough to figure out, not to mention expensive. Going super budget, obviously the guildgates, lifegain lands (Scoured Barrens, etc.), bounce lands (Boros Garrison, etc.), other dual lands (Forsaken Sanctuary, etc.). All the basics. Other useful, cheap lands include Exotic Orchard, Rupture Spire, and the pain lands like Caves of Koilos and Battlefield Forge.

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! :)

I don't think chat works on my account for some reason. But anyways,

So my Bishop of Rebirth Promo foil for your Overseer of the Damned, Herald of Warfoil icon, and Guardian of the Gateless? If you'd want to throw in your Bogardan Hellkite too that would be sweet, but no big deal if not :)

Neither of us are upgraded so we can't initiate an official trade. Do you have an email I could get so we can exchange addresses?

Hi, the Bishop of Rebirth I have is the promo art, and is foil. I think it's valued at around $5. If that seems fair, maybe we could trade a few cards, mainly Overseer of the Damned, Herald of Warfoil icon, and Guardian of the Gateless.

If you're looking for the cheaper, non-foil version, I completely understand. :)

I think these are the demons I will pull out Bloodgift Demon, Eater of Hope, Overseer of the Damned, Silent-Blade Oni, Malfegor, Shimatsu the Bloodcloaked. All of these demons are either low impact or highly situational.

Was looking at your deck some more, and I have a few more ideas, like upping your demon count and a few reanimation spells liiiiike.....

Desecration Demon, Grave Titan, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder, Reiver Demon, Bloodgift Demon, Rune-Scarred Demon, Reaper from the Abyss, Overseer of the Damned

stuff like that...then you could put in reanimation spells like

Animate Dead, Reanimate, Ever After, Whip of Erebos, Sheoldred, Whispering One

stuff like that...you could throw in Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, Tormenting Voice for card draw/discard

Maybe a zombie sub theme and add in Shepherd of Rot

Fun things like Tree of Perdition, Quietus Spike, Rage Reflection, Ward of Bones, Havoc Festival

If anything definitely add Anger to your deck

or just throw in 30 Shadowborn Apostle haha

If I repeated any cards already in your deck, I apologize. Either was happy building and kick some ace!!
