Bxbx, you make a good point of consideration there. Perhaps it is more worth looking into. Perhaps I'll put Reiver Demon in the sideboard to test a bit more, and try to acquire the other one, too. Thanks for laying that out for me there.
chaosumbreon87, that's an interesting point, too. I suppose if anything, it at least can tap for each turn. It might be worth a look. Thanks.

Ok, you're right that Reiver Demon and Dread Cacodemon are no great reanimation-targets. But In Garruk's Wake isn't a good target for reanimation either. So my idea was, that the Dread Cacodemon in hand at least gives the option for discarding to volrath besides giving the alternative option to wipe the board, while In Garruk's Wake does only give one option at all.
Utimately it's a decision between having a [onesided boardwipe incl. planeswalkers for 9 mana] or having a [onesided boardwipe excl. planeswalkers and tapping your creatures for 10 mana plus the option to alternatively combo with your commander]. In this case I would prefer the extra versatility over the better effectiveness/efficiency.
You're probably right that Toxic Deluge is even better than both though.

CrazedPorcupine, thanks for the comments!
Bxbx, I like the ability Dread Cacodemon brings to the table, just not how it does it. I had Reiver Demon in the deck, but I took it out along with some of the Eldrazi I had because their ETB effects only work if cast from my hand. My goal is to discard and then reanimate, and I found myself never holding onto those cards to actually cast, and if I did, it takes a big swing away from Volrath. I am considering going after Toxic Deluge, though, as another option for board wipe.

fierce3302 Thanks a bunch for your comment, and like BrenoSulz I think you're pretty much spot on. Thankfully almost all the cards you've mentioned are cards that came in the original precon. You are correct that Dread Cacodemon and Reiver Demon abilities aren't trigged by Kaalia cheating them into play. Not once have I cast these cards for mana, so they'll be going asap. Really appreciate that you've pointed out what to take out as well as put in. Thankyou again!
BrenoSulz I agree with all your suggestions. Stoneforge Mystic is certainly within my budget, and will be crazy when I do eventually get the two swords and Swiftfoot Boots in the deck. Kaalia is quite squishy, but I mean there has to be SOME downside to a commander that lets you put crap like Iona, Shield of Emeria on the battlefield for free. Cheers again for the suggestions!

As your deck list is pretty big so I thought I would give you some ideas for cards to cut.
Akroma, Angel of Fury: good, but does not have a big enough effect for commander
Anger: you're only running 2 mountains
Duergar Hedge-Mage good card but again, you are only running 4 mountains and 6 plains
Fallen Angel: you don't really have a use for a sac engine.
Jayemdae Tome: Just not great
Wrecking Ball no need for land destruction and there is better creature removal
Ghostly Prison:fine cared but has no real reason to be in this deck
Vow of Duty: just run a removal spell
Earthquake, Evincar's Justice, Pyrohemia, Sulfurous Blast: The mardu colors are the king of board wipes, run something better. ie. Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Wrath of God, Chain Reaction, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Decree of Pain to name a few
Congregate: don't need the life gain. Unless of course you play lots of token decks
Liliana of the Dark Realms: you have 3 swamps
you have a good amount of good creature but because your commander relies on your hand here are some more card draw ideas:Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Bloodgift Demon, Damnable Pact, Dragon Mage, Erebos, God of the Dead, Harvester of Souls, Necrologia, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Skeletal Scrying, Underworld Connections, Wretched Confluence, and Read the Bones.
More additional combat phase spell would also greatly benefit you. World at War, Aurelia, the Warleader, Fury of the Horde, Hellkite Charger, Relentless Assault, Savage Beating, Scourge of the Throne, Seize the Day, Waves of Aggression
in case you haven't already you may want to check out https://edhrec.com/commanders/kaalia-of-the-vast for more card ideas.
Looks like a great start, hope my comments were helpful

i would take out Quicksilver Amulet and [virtue's ruin] because you have the mana to hard cast things and ruin only hits 1/5 the creatures all your other removal does. replace them with Leyline of the Void & Helm of Obedience which is an infinite mill a player combo.
take out [heartless summoning, again, because you have so much ramp anyways. i think Isochron Scepter would be a good add because it you have instant kill spells like Go for the Throat also Victim of Night hits alot of creatures for a 2 mana instant, another good option for scepter could be Darkness.
take out Rag Dealer since he can die so easily and you will put in leyline anyway so you get your value. add in Exsanguinate it can get you your life back and it most cases due to your mana be able to kill your opponents.
Price of Knowledge can be kind of clunky, instead, i think Mindslicer would be better beacause it puts everyone in a top deck situation especially after youve been killing all their resources on field
another triskellion kill is Necrotic Ooze and Phyrexian Devourer. if devourer and skellion is in the gy ooze can use the devourer affect to be huge af, then use triskelions effect to remove its counters to kill someone while the devourer ability is on the stack. its kind of a last ditch sort of thing but it works
Magus of the Coffers works with your Umbral Mantle for infinite mana. also if magus and pila-pala are in the graveyard then [necrotic ooze] becomes infinite mana by itself so you can you that Exsanguinate mentioned earlier to kill your opposition
