Platinum Emperion is indeed superor, if the deck is a tempo deck, but its just not the same lock.
It still loses to infect, and being milled out - which can happen if the opponent draws less, and gained ~infinite life.

It also doesn't work with Pact of Negation or Glorious End (latter being able to exile the stack, thus countering stuff like Supreme Verdict, or any ability)


In the end all this deck, is an exploratory attempt, on seeing how far Platinum Angel can as a lock piece in modern.

Tyrant-Thanatos on can I get negative life ...

You can have a negative life total, and even still be in the game via Platinum Angel and the like.

However you cannot pay life you don't have. So if you have 1 or less life, you cannot activate the souleater by paying life.

Kyln on can I get negative life ...

I have Platinum Angel and Immolating Souleater in play, if I had starting life total how many times could I use soul eaters ability?

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! :)

If Platinum Angels end up too often in the grave, increasing their number to 3 would be the ideal answer imho.
As doing so greatly increase s the chances of not drawing all of them even when going 30 cards deep into the library - math is a wonderful help for deckbuilding

Platinum Angel going to the grave is a real pain, that true.

However i don't really worry about grave hate.
When you think about it, it helps this deck, as the opposition tends to have a very limited number of removal spells that can actually deal with the angel - due to recent popularity of low cmc spell (that got hyped due to grixis death's shadow, where they shine).
Without snappy to help out (which is negated by RIP), its really hard to kill the angel due to having to fight through my counters.

As such adding some bonus grave filler, can go a long way to help counter stuff in big mana deck like tron, various green devotion, and land enchanting strategies.

true.... however those playing graveyard hate like Rest in Peace/Surgical Extraction can hurt you and you wont have to worry about your Platinum Angel going into the GY.
