A bit late, but there are a few other ways to do this. One is to set the loop with another copy effect (for example, Swarm Intelligence, Riku of Two Reflections, or Dualcaster Mage). Of course, it's not Kalamax copying the effect but it'll still put an arbitrary number of +1/+1 counters on it (and/or kill the table with Ral, Storm Conduit).
The second is trickier. You tap Kalamax . . . and then you wait. The moment your opponent casts an instant or sorcery, drop your copy spell and go infinite. It's not as splashy as doing it in combat, but there's something glorious about springing an infinite combo as a trap.

You also want to run creatures that reduce cost or give you combat advantage, like Baral, Chief of Compliance, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Kykar, Wind's Fury, and Taigam, Ojutai Master are just a few examples.
If you want to check out my decklist and look at the combo pieces here it is Sevinne, blast from the past

It seems decent, at least a rare. May I suggest a second X ability tacked into the second loyalty ability?

Melek, Izzet Paragon and Swarm Intelligence are the best high CMC cards in the precon. Wort, the Raidmother is also good because of conspire especially with Young Pyromancer's red Elementals with red instants such as Comet Storm. Conspire is also a way to tap Kalamax, but a reason to not play Wort is because conspire doesn't work with mono blue cards. Blue instants and Drakes/Birds don't work with conspire and they're some of the strongest cards with Kalamax. The other 6+ CMC cards could be on the chopping block.
The avg. CMC of the precon is high at 3.6 therefore some cuts to consider would be to reduce this number. An example of a cut is Djinn Illuminatus for Springleaf Drum (cut a 7 CMC card for a 1 CMC card). The precon has a lot of creatures which is understandable since new players like to play with creatures. In my opinion Kalamax is better with a spellslinger theme which means less creatures and more instant/sorceries.
With spellslinger the low amount of creatures you want to play should provide repeatable draw or other repeatable value when you cast an instant or sorcery since these effects help Kalamax and have good interaction with him. Eon Frolicker and Nascent Metamorph should be on the chopping block.
