Scourge of the Throne Discussion

I like Aggravated Assault, but I've got Scourge of the Throne in my deck, which has a similar effect and also adds to the synergy of the deck. I know that AA is an enchantment and can be done repeatedly, but SoTT feels like a better use of this slot for this deck. Do you think AA is worth a slot?

First post so bear with me. I have an Ensnaring Bridge from stronghold that I don't use for my deck, its in quite good condition, and I am looking for cards to add to my ur-dragon deck or my talrand deck. I also have some cards lying around not in use like Ramos, Dragon Engine Birds of Paradise and a foil prerelease Settle the Wreckage that I did open, but all three are in good condition. The following cards are some of the things I am looking for. Scourge of the Throne Patriarch's Bidding Expropriate Gauntlet of Power High Tide Pact of Negation Rhystic Study Mystic Remora Ancient Tomb some combination of these (as well as others) that adds up to roughly the price of the card is what im interested in. I can trade it to my local store for around 30 dollars so I am looking to get closer to the 40 value if possible. other cards may work, just list your request. I am new to the site so I am unsure of what to check outside of my inbox or the comment thread. Thanks!!

Cloudform and Rageform are good with brago. Godo, Bandit Warlord is good for the etb and adds additional attacks (for him at least. Scourge of the Throne is an additional aurelia to abuse. Wingmate Roc is multiple birds a turn.

One of the best things I learned a long time ago is simply this: There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. With that in mind, here are some additional thoughts on your deck.

Weaker Dragons to consider taking out. Keep in mind that this is based on my play style.
Hellkite Charger is a maybe. I like the extra combat phase, but it is dependant on being in play, attacking, and having 7 mana available. Not sure yet. Intet, the Dreamer has always been weak. You get to exile the top card of your library and hope that you can play it before the next Wrath of God or Path to Exile, after paying 3 mana to exile your own card. Spellbound Dragon might work in a deck built around draw-discard. But this deck isn't. You want the draw, but not the discard. Just doesn't seem to fit that well. Silumgar, the Drifting Death seems a bit on the weak side. But I could see him as a way to get rid of token armies. Not sure on this one either.

Now to take a look at the non-creature cards.
Ponder is a great card. In a 60 card deck with a full playset. In a Commander/EDH deck, not so much. Single use is a big drawback. I prefer repeatable effects in commander decks. Or consider Brainstorm instead. Dreamstone Hedron is nice. But as a 6 cast artifact that either adds 3 colorless or draws 3 cards I can't shake the feeling that it is a bit late to the party. Consider Hedron Archive. Same basic idea. It only adds 2 colorless or draws 2 cards. But it hit the field 2 turns earlier. That is 2 whole turns of having 2 more mana to help power out those Dragons. Relic of Progenitus is a great card in a lot of tournament decks. However, it also trashes your graveyard too. Depending on your Meta, maybe a simple Tormod's Crypt instead? Curse of Verbosity is a great way to pile on to the biggest threat player at the table. But you have no way to bounce it to change the target and once that play is out of the game, this becomes a dead card on the field. Also, you don't really want to give other players an option to draw cards. Darksteel Mutation is cute spot removal. But there are so many better options. Is spot removal really that important in your meta? If so, consider Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, Unmake or even Curse of the Swine. All of which deal really well with any threat except a commander. You could use Declaration of Naught naming their Commander if you really want to get someone angry. Frontier Siege either adds 2 mana or causes your creatures to fight. I can think of so many better uses for that sleeve. More creatures. More mana ramp. More shenanigans. Monastery Siege first ability suffers the same problems that Mirror of the Forebears copies an existing creaturee in play. Not bad. I would put this in the maybe pile. Tough call on this one. I would keep it or cut it depending on what other choices get made. Lightning Greaves & Swiftfoot Boots are cards that I know you like and I do see their value. But to me there are so many better uses of those sleeves. These are probably the cards least likely to be swapped out of your deck, but I don't think that your deck really needs them. They don't protect from board wipe. You have other cards that give Dragons haste or you could even run Anger for the haste.

New dragons to consider:
Balefire Dragon and Deathbringer Regent are both Dragons and board wipes rolled into one sleeve. Destructor Dragon dies and takes another non-creature with it. Read that as destroy target planeswalker, artifact, enchantment or land. Dragonlord Atarka acts as a spot removal spell and a Dragon. Dragonlord Dromoka does a really good job of dealing with counterspells. Dragonlord Kolaghan gives your other creatures haste. Hoever, his second ability is kind of a waste in Commander. Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund needs no explanation. Keiga, the Tide Star gains control of an opponent creature until end of the game or you sacrifice it to the Altar. Kilnmouth Dragon we've already talked about. Nicol Bolas is a maybe. I know he is iconic and has a good ability, however, tying up 3 colored mana each turn isn't that great. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is a good card draw and ping engine. Jsut don't use the stupid Curiosity combo. That's so lame. Ruthless Deathfang works well with the Altar of Dementia and Scourge of Nel Toth. I sacrifice a creature, oh, and so should you. Scourge of Nel Toth not only comes back form the grave for cheap, but it also provides a sacrifice method for Jugan or Keiga. Scourge of the Throne is a great way to knock an opponent in the lead back down. Thunderbreak Regent punishes opponents for using spot removal. I would rather run this instead of the boots. This is a threat, the boots and greaves aren't. The equipment does protect against spot removal. Also watching an opponent getting a Lightning Bolt in the face for the effort of removing a Dragon is pretty funny.

Other cards to look at:
Eerie Interlude or Ghostway can do double duty of protecting your creatures and retrigger all of the enter-the-battlefield effects. If Scourge of Valkas or Warstorm Surge is on the field, then Eerie Interlude becomes a kill card. Shard Convergence helps make more mana available. Basilisk Collar gives lifelink and deathtouch. And putting deathtouch on Scourge of Kher Ridges provides another board wipe. Deathtouch on Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind adds another point of spot removal. Patriarch's Bidding has long been a staple of tribal decks. Thanks for that Wrath of God. I needed that. Now watch as I return all of my threats.

As always, temper these suggestions with your play style, collections, and budget. Let me know what you think.

Hey. At first I just saw your description an didn't payed much attention on the list.

Mass Hysteria can be ok, but just give preference for effects for you. And when I suggested that I was thinking about haste for Kaalia. She is a dangerous cmdr and this leads to a lot of hate. I would run Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory and Steelshaper's Gift to tutor for Lightning Greaves or other haste/protection equipments. If your budget allow, grab a Stoneforge Mystic.

Speaking of tutors... you have access to black and this means Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor just to name the best ones.

I'm all over the place, but what can I do... I don't like Kaalia too much because she is so fragile (although I love the idea of Angels, Demons and Dragons... I mean, who don't?!). You really need to focus in A) protect her once she's in play; B) exploit her as soon as possible (aka attack right away).

Quick look into your Angel-Demon-Dragons:

Angel of Serenity, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Steel Hellkite listed in your maybeboard right are easy inclusions.

fierce3302 dude listed some good ones. Bloodgift Demon, Dragon Mage, Aurelia, the Warleader, Scourge of the Throne. I also agree with almost everything he said.

PS: Here's a link about her lore (https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/stonekiller-part-2-2012-08-13)

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

Dragon Whelp, Serra Angel, Orzhov Guildmage, Ichor Wellspring: not large enough effect

Dread Cacodemon, Reiver Demon I'm not sure about this but I don't think Kaalia's ability qualifies as casting it

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

Soul Snare: better options, ie Swords to Plowshares

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

It'd be interesting to run an enchantress package with the number of enchantments you have. Cut some fat dragons/bad enchantments and artifacts for:

Otherwise I'd run the most color-useful signets for fixing and Fellwar Stone. Amulet of Vigor if you really want to keep running taplands. Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot are pretty mediocre. Don't know about Herald’s Horn.

Cut the tri-lands for checklands like Dragonskull Summit? Or maybe a heftier reanimator (ie: Reanimate) package to cheat dragons in.
