Thanks for the deck and primer. I have build this deck myself, have all the components except Imperial Seal and Timetwister, still trying to find one.

Just wondering what would be the best substitute for it, am considering either Sterling Grove or Drift of Phantasms for now. Which is better? Maybe both of them in place of the two cards above. Or should I use Windfall in place of Timetwister?

Also how about Zur the Enchanter to search for Food Chain or Necropotence, I'm guessing its not included because the mana cost is too high.

For the mana base, I tried replacing basic Forest with Taiga but then feel the basic forest is better. There was one occasion where I cannot find the red mana to cast Fire Covenant in time though but otherwise it was okay.

Since this deck is often able to produce G,U and B consistently, I am considering replacing Tundra with Scrubland, as triple black is important if Necropotence is needed early somehow. Not sure if it is a good idea though?

Would love to hear your opinion. Thanks in advance.

I love the deck, a few minor changes here and there to help with consistency,

1x Plains -> Scrubland

You don't run a fourth Scrubland, and the deck doesn't need 2 Plains, so I think you are fine with the mana fixing help. Despite the Wasteland problem, I think them targeting your Scrubland only serves to help protect your Shambling Vent and Karakas.

1x Collective Brutality -> Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

I love death & taxes, and though I do not want to turn this into that deck, runnin one mainboard isn't going to hurt the deck. I feel like boarding a Collective Brutality isn't a bad thing either, just feel like against many decks, I have found that boarding in a Thalia or two is quite common to the point of main decking one.

Searches for Plains, Tundra, Scrubland, Hallowed Fountain, and Godless Shrine. It doesn't have the green mana symbol in the text so it's still within color identity of the commander.

Hey LVL_666!I'm kinda playing the poor man's version of your deck. Im using the exact same slivers for my tests, there's only Bonesplitter Sliver that I'm not sure aboud. Huge fan of Quick Sliver.

I only own Scrubland and Savannah, plus Im still mising Scalding Tarn and Marsh Flats. Been usingKrosan Verge instead.

I use Growing Rites of Itlimoc instead of Gaea's Cradle.

Memory Lapse instead of Disallow. I really like the 2 mana instead of 3, plus its pretty tempo.

And I'm running Rhystic Study and Land Tax just in case.

Plus, I just bought Vampiric bloodlust deck to have vanilla games. I'll have to playtest Teferi's Protection .

Spirits on Kaalia - Cheat A/D/D

4 months ago

Hi Elywood, Good start! Kaalia of the Vast is a really fun, albeit tier 3, commander that is the best!

Not sure of your budget, but here are some suggestion.

Alternative to Combo Win-Cons

The standard win-con in a Kaalia of the Vast which is not a combo is... Land Destruction! The idea being to use card's like Boros Charm, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Teferi's Protection to protect yourself; OR have an A/D/D in hand that you can free cast that demands a response, but is hard to deal with no lands, like Hellkite Tyrant or Iona, Shield of Emeria. The key cards to this strategy are: Crucible of Worlds, Armageddon, Ravages of War, Cataclysm, Strip Mine, Waste land, Command Beacon. This is a HIGHLY viable strategy, people may not like facing your Kaalia of the Vast deck, but it definitely isn't a combo strategy.

Master of Cruelties has to be in there, attack with Kaalia of the Vast, drop in Master of Cruelties, during the declare blockers step their life becomes 1 (assuming he is unblocked), and Kaalia of the Vast hits for 2 finishing the player. Not a combo, a necessary Demon.

Another common strategy is multiple attack phases, non-combo, but with big A/D/D beaters, having multiple swings (especially with Vigilance is amazing way to deal damage). The key cards are: Hellkite Charger, Aggravated Assault, Sword of Feast and Famine, Aurelia, the Warleader, Seize the Day. There is a combo with Adarkar Valkyrie + Aurelia, the Warleader + sac outlet out of interest. Adarkar Valkyrie although not working properly with the Kaalia of the Vast mechanics, is still a great recursion angel. Reconnaissance is nice for this strategy too, as you can pull back your Kaalia of the Vast against block heavy decks, as well POST-damage, you can pull back EVERYONE, basically it gives all your creatures Vigilance.

Free A/D/D strategy, you have it with Sneak Attack, Quicksilver Amulet, Mimic Vat so your already there, try a Whip of Erebos gives all your creatures Lifelink, which increases your sustainability in drawn out games (non-combo strategy the only way to win is in a drawn-out game), plus give you another recursion engine. Could use a Sundial of the Infinite to keep them on the board permanently!!

Mana Sources

Lands: Blood Crypt, Godless Shrine, Sacred Foundry, Bloodstained Mire, Arid Mesa, Marsh Flats would be some nice improvements.

Rocks: Mana Crypt, Chromatic Lantern would be good.

$$$: Plateau, Scrubland, Badlands

Control

Angel of Despair is great at removal, Anguished Unmaking is necessary, Terminate at CMC2 is good as well.

Stranglehold is another good control mechanism, you have a few, can look at pairing it with Maralen of the Mornsong to lock down opponents draw. She has synergy with some other guys like Aven Mindcensor/Ob Nixilis, Unshackled. Eidolon of Rhetoric might stop a Sunforger cast depending on what you did earlier that turn, like a Haste Kaalia of the Vast for example, to consider, or in an Armageddon build will be very bad.

Out of the 99 Considerations

I'm not a huge fan of Reverberate/Shunt, you have Sunforger so I get it, but it will often just sit in your hand. And Kaalia of the Vast is usually splash , so not that valuable. Would rather have a Steel Hellkite or a Gisela, the Broken Blade, or heck, even a Wild Ricochet

Solemn Simulacrum really unnecessary land searching. Use mana-enablers instead.

Toxic Deluge is an all-star removal, but he removes Indestructible, so unless your facing that frequently in your play-groups, it will hurt you more than a Damnation, Wrath of God, or Rout will.

Boros Garrison/Orzhov Basilica I find it too slow without infinite combo, although it ramps, but you have lots of mana enablers. Field of Ruin colorless mana isn't great, don't need the search. Flamekin Village cost is too high, tapped+, try a Hall of the Bandit Lord. Shadowblood Ridge is also not great (I know it seems like it should be, but it's not!), Slayers' Stronghold is too expensive , use Hanweir Battlements instead, but even then it's borderline (but better), Smoldering Marsh isn't going to come in untapped when you need it, Temple of Malice/Temple of Silence I also don't like, but borderline for me would be my last cuts, Vivid Meadow is no.

Earnest Fellowship I wouldn't do this, might make it hard for you to block (which you have the big creatures that are hard to block already). A little too dangerous for my liking, let opponents pump their creatures, no need to do it for them, and block with your big guys.

Don't need Land Tax either, not enough basic lands. Wear could easily be an Anguished Unmaking and have better removal or a Vandalblast to get away from 1 for 1 play.

Devoted Caretaker I wish she provided protection period so could go unblockable. I think Mother of Runes is enough, but maybe theres someone that gives just protection and doesn't cost a and ? But it does permanents, so I get it.

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder will not be your friend some days during board wipe, but with so little drawing in Mardu, he's a fun one! I would run him in this type of build!

Coalition Relic I don't know it's worth it, give me a Chromatic Lantern any day.

Sun Titan is questionable, what are you bringing back? Lightning Greaves, Sunforger, Animate Dead, Necromancy only stuff. He's discretionary. High Mana cost but utility, he can combo with Fiend Hunter but again combos a different strategy (so can Karmic Guide btw).

Gilded Lotus seems highly unnecessary. Love the artwork on the Kokusho, the Evening Star always wanted him in.

Mana Distrubition

Right now, your 46%, 33%, 21% but your mana is 28%, 37%, 35%. In addition, Turn 1: 80%, 10%, 10%! / lands will be your best friends, but balancing / and / lands too. Avoid / that don't provide value, like Mountain, Shadowblood Ridge (awful), Smoldering Marsh, Temple of Malice.

Windswept Heath/Polluted Delta/Etc, the Off-Color fetches, can really help mana fix, pull a Sacred Foundry with Windswept Heath or a Godless Shrine with Polluted Delta / Etc.

Other Notables

Demonic Tutor doesn't get much better than that! Mortify can be a good utility removal the CMC3 makes it less attractive, Vampiric Tutor although inefficient to pull a Lightning Greaves or Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is still good enough. It's instant so at EOT pull what you need. Rakdos the Defiler can be fun in a Armageddon model. Fetid Heath/Rugged Prairie are not too shabby. Sensei's Divining Top can help look and top-deck the A/D/D you need, IF you have none in hand it can swap places so you don't miss Kaalia of the Vast drops. Cavern of Souls against Grixis/Izzet, Phyrexian Reclamation can keep you rolling once you run out of cards-in-hand, an alternate quasi-draw.

Very good Kaalia of the Vast non-combo deck, looks like a blast to play. Hopefully you found some of these ramblings useful.

So.... if you take out all those lands like Scrubland and Bayou and whatnot, this deck is less than $200. If you want this deck, but at a lower power level and MUCH lower cost, cut these:
Plateau
Taiga
Savannah
Scrubland
Badlands
Bayou
Tundra
Volcanic Island
Underground Sea
