Want to make room for Phyrexian Reclamation now that more creature sac outlets are in.

Hey, here are some budget cards you could include:

Removel: - Utter End - Generous Gift - Archon of Justice

sacrifice value cards: - Falkenrath Noble

Ramp/Token - Oketra's Monument - Spirit Bonds - Dreadhorde Invasion

cards I would recommend, which are slightly expensive: - Phyrexian Reclamation - Teysa, Orzhov Scion - Hallowed Spiritkeeper

heavyuser Phyrexian Reclamation goes back to the hand rather than directly to the battlefield and is therefore too slow imo.

Thanks a bunch! Phyrexian Reclamation might actually work. Not too many tribal decks around here, so I'm fine with Coat of Arms . It could be replaced with something like Door of Destinies .

I really like this deck. I've always wanted to make an Elf Tribal deck and I like the discard theme as well. I might have to make something similar to this. Do you think Phyrexian Reclamation would help with board wipes and what not? It would also help with your Grave Pact+ Attrition combo if you don't have too many creatures on board. I really like Coat of Arms but personally, I can't really play it in my meta. There's a Sliver deck, Krenko Goblin deck, Knights deck, Elves deck and an Angels deck that all get played pretty often. Kinda risky but I have no idea how your meta is. Either way, your deck looks great!! Good luck~

Hey, nice budget version of Kaalia.

All my suggestions are $3 or less each and for casual play. Cards to consider adding:

Oddsmaker and Reclamation may seem like odd suggestions, but these cards are good with Kaalia. Oddsmaker is a very underrated card for reanimation strategies as a repeatable enabler to discard creatures. It's repeatable draw is especially good with Kaalia because she has flying.

Reclamation doesn't reanimate, but what it does is recur a creature you want to cheat into play with Kaalia or even Kaalia herself to avoid Commander tax. Kaalia is going to die, she will have a huge target on her head, you would rather her go to the graveyard then back to the Command Zone because then there's the tax. Having to burn a reanimation spell on Kaalia is not good therefore you want other ways to be able to play Kaalia which Reclamation can help with. Reclamation is a good card with Kaalia in the later game when there's creatures in your graveyard that you would like to cheat into play with Kaalia, but can't because they're not in your hand and you don't have reanimation.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Boros Guildgate
  • Stone Quarry
  • Temple of Silence
  • Canyon Slough
  • Heretic's Punishment
  • Moltensteel Dragon
  • Ryusei, the Falling Star
  • Desecration Demon
  • Mardu Banner
  • Rout
  • Phyrexian Rebirth
  • Terminate

I offer more advice, good luck with your deck.
