Rune-Scarred Demon Discussion

Spirits: Wow, thanks for the suggestions! Rune-Scarred Demon and Avacyn, Angel of Hope seem really great. And I didn't even think about Hanweir Battlements. Definitely adding these cards.

Hey, nice build, fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

Avacyn, Angel of Hope is the flagship Angel of this deck, shes pricey, but critical in here. The indestructible is also very, very nice.

Rune-Scarred Demon is a great Demon, he replaces himself in your hand with a Master of Cruelties or a Avacyn, Angel of Hope or can pull an Anguished Unmaking if Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Purphoros, God of the Forge are punching you in the face. Demonic Tutor also great. Best solutions, more searching for them.

Path to Exile is great removal.

Blood Crypt and Godless Shrine and Sacred Foundry are great because they are Mountain, Swamp and Plains so searchable. In 3-color Mardu, mana fixing is an issue.

Angel of Despair is also good for destroying annoying permanents.

Not sure Night's Whisper is a good enough card advantage, but I understand, Mardu doesn't have too many great ones. Sign in Blood is a little more modular, allows you to target opponents, if you need them to lose two life or lose. But the makes it more difficult to cast earlier on during ramping up.

I like the Banishing Light and Oblivion Ring you've gone with.

Don't think this guy is too much of a threat Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury. if he gave haste to others would be ok. Usually won't be attacking with too many creatures. His Dash is nice, but not really that strong. Won't trigger if brought in with Kaalia of the Vast either and negates his Dash.

I think Hanweir Battlements is better than Slayers' Stronghold, You lose the +2/+0 and Vigilance, but for less Mana.

Overall cool build, some fun demons and dragons in there. +1

Hey nice build. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

You could really use a Rune-Scarred Demon in here. He is a respectable 6/6 but replaces himself with a Master of Cruelties or an Avacyn, Angel of Hope depending on board position, or he can pull an Anguished Unmaking if you have a problem.

I also really like Balefire Dragon, he is one of my favorites.

Really like the Angel's Grace in here. Could utilize a Dragon Tempest the haste allows Kaalia of the Vast to connect more often, than waiting for everyone to have a turn to destroy her.

Since you have Crucible of Worlds could utilize an additional land destruction like Ravages of War or Cataclysm, or at least a Strip Mine. There is a second Strip Mine as well, it's name escapes me at this very moment.

I would have to verify this but I don't think Duelist's Heritage can double strike the Angel/Demon/Dragon. Both Kaalia of the Vast and Duelist's Heritage triggers will go on the stack (in the order you choose), but you have to select the targets when going on the stack, which means, the creature isn't on the battlefield yet. I could be wrong, but feel like Silverblade Paladin might be a better option, but he's a creature so easier to remove, I understand that.

You don't have many equipment, the double strike maybe, but worries Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon without any equipment or other creature support might not get there on the 10 poison counters, and then he's really just slowing you down since everyone else is just doing damage, except him.

I personally dislike the randomness of Tariel, Reckoner of Souls plus it relies on opponents graveyards, when all you removal is Exile. Although you do run LOTS of board remove (except Terminus which won't help with graveyard)

Pretty cool. +1.

right, so ima make a few suggestions. None of my suggestions will really be budget, also my comments may be a bit harsh.

one drop the amount of creatures you are running its simply to many. Also the creatures here it seems are pretty bad most could be a lot better, although these creatures are fire:

  • Avacyn, Angel of Hope
  • Dragon Mage
  • Hellkite Tyrant
  • Karmic Guide
  • Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker
  • Master of Cruelties
  • Rakdos, Lord of Riots
  • Restoration Angel
  • Sire Of Insanity

some creatures that id recommend on adding

right now on to your instants.these are subpar and can go:

  • Volcanic Offering
  • War Report
  • Wretched Confluence
  • Pay No Heed

Id try putting in some of these:

right now im looking at your artifacts more specifically your ramp, where is it? like youre playing kaalia you want ALL the ramp some good ideas for your ramp are;

right now for your spells these can probably go although yawgmoths can possibly stay.

  • Mob Rule
  • Nightmare Incursion
  • Obzedat's Aid
  • Temporal Extortion
  • Tyrannize
  • Urborg Uprising
  • Yawgmoth's Will

id recommend running some stuff like:

you dont wont many enchantments like 5ish at most, these are some decent choices:

dragon tempest is fire.

and now finally lands if you want your land base at a stupidly good level just copy and paste my land base.

i hope this helps feel free to check out my kaalia

Going Orzhov or Mardu?

Reuse of the GY we have Athreos, God of Passage and Ravos, Soultender

Steal from graveyard we have Tariel, Reckoner of Souls to be used as general.

Some good cards to steal things from gy are:Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Grave Upheaval, Beacon of Unrest and Rise from the Grave.

For your on use:Reanimate, Unburial Rites and Torrent of Souls.

Some big hitters:Aurelia, the Warleader, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Bloodgift Demon and Rune-Scarred Demon.

Metallic Mimic pairs well with Adaptive Automaton

Ascendant Evincar seems too expensive but not terriblesame with Dread Slaver

Helldozer is slow, but if he comes online he seems legit. you'll probably need to test him out in your meta.

Lightning Greaves>Swiftfoot Bootsif you can afford em.Graf Harvest>Cover of Darkness

Scourge of Nel Toth is just too expensive for my taste, but hey he is a flyin' Zombie..I could see it getting cut in favor of a more efficient card.

Diabolic Tutormy least favorite tutor, should be replaced by a more efficient one, like Vampiric TutorDemonic TutorBeseech the QueenRune-Scarred Demonor any other one. There are probably 8 more I can't think of right now. BtQ being one of the budget option.

Forced Marchseems like there are better board wipe options, especially since this pretty much guaranties killing all Z's. Toxic DelugeDamnationLife's FinalePlague Wind

Jet Medallion> Mind Stoneor another rando rock

remove Smother for kill with life gain like Consuming Vapors.

good valueVictimizeGempalm PolluterWithered Wretch

Auto ins;Cabal CoffersCemetery ReaperLord of the UndeadCryptbreakerFleshbag Marauderthere are same dude with different names tooCorpse HarvesterZombie Master

You have a lot of life loss but I am not seeing life gain, consider cards like Whip of ErebosExquisite Bloodor any other cards that have lifelink tacked on them.

that should give you some options to trade for. I would also check out the other Gisa lists on EDHREC for ideas, she is a very popular commander. Have Fun :)

Rusty_Shackleford on My my my my Kaalia

Don't know what your ultimate goal for the deck is (with Kaalia there are several ways to skin the proverbial cat, and there are very few "must-adds"), but here's my list, which is focused pretty much exclusively on offense--perhaps to a fault.

I'd just generally suggest that you want to minimize mass creature removal (no more than three of the cheaper "Wrath" effects--i.e. Day of Judgment, Damnation, and the eponymous Wrath of God) because they don't typically fit your strategy, and maximize mass land destruction (i.e. Ravages of War, Cataclysm, Ajani Vengeant, etc.)

Tutors are also invaluable. Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are two of those aforementioned "must-adds".Rune-Scarred Demon is busted because it's fast and replaces itself...

I could go on for days. Kaalia is a great general because there are so many interchangeable parts to fill out her 99 depending on which strategy you commit to.
