Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Discussion

Im liking this build, but since Ive been playing Etali for a few weeks, I have some suggestions for what has helped me. I would recommend using some more utility lands to help protect Etali like Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep or Rogue's Passage, and possibly some Lightning Greaves or Whispersilk Cloak or Dolmen Gate. I dont know if thats what youre going for, but my Etali deck Etali, Primal Beatstick tries to capitalize as much as I can on his ability, so he is usually a big target whenever I put him out. In regards to working with etalis ability... Mizzix's Mastery is definitely a good card, but if you flip it with Etali, you wont be able to pay its overload cost, so it may not always be as effective as youd like it, so Id suggest something that allows for additional costs that you are allowed to pay, like Shattering Spree, or another card with the same cmc but works better with Etali, like Relentless Assault. You get another combat, which means that cause of Etali youll still be casting free spells, just your opponents haha.

As a final suggestion, I think you should consider running Guttersnipe since you could be potentially casting a lot of free spells. Feel free to check mine out and see what you think!

I'd throw in an Eiganjo Castle and a Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, just because it would never hurt to have more options with Thalia's Lancers.

Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep is very cool! Have you considered Mikokoro, Center of the Sea instead of Geier Reach Sanitarium?

I dig Dragonshift and Library of Leng a lot, as well.

I've been working on a list using The Locust God. I've moved away from some of my wheel effects like Mindmoil and creatures with triggered wheels to get away from the randomness of what opponents and I discard and draw. I've also found that winning out of nowhere or rebuilding the board doesn't take too long, so I've dropped a lot of counter magic and protection in favor of more draw and direct damage based off of the number of cards or creatures I have. Dogpile, Invoke the Firemind, and Roar of the Crowd have been pretty good.

What do you think of that approach? You can see the list here: Revenge of the Nibblers.

zertsdfg Burning-Tree Emissary Isn't ideal in this deck because there will be times where the extra green mana will be wasted. Also the OP is playing only 1 drops.

hellakevin I really suggest having Skullcrack in the sideboard to deal with lifegain!

Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Seems random. Have you tested like a 1 or 2 of Teetering Peaks ?

I really like the deck Callmegkill. I have a similar deck that uses most of these cards and a few more that I will be buying this week. I think the major change from your deck to mine is the expensive lands that you have in your deck. I haven't replaced my tapped lands with better lands yet. Do you draw Eiganjo Castle or Flagstones of Trokair very often when you play? And how often do you use their abilities? I love the cards, just don't know how often they would be used. I really like how Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep synergizes with Tajic, Blade of the Legion. The possibility of a 7/7 with First Strike and Indestructible for 4 mana sounds scary. In my deck it could possibly become a 9/7 if I am attacking with 2 Honored Crop-Captains. I will definitely have to try and find some of those awesome lands. Any suggestions you would have for my deck would be greatly appreciated: Gideon of Destiny

thricetheheiney glad to hear you like it, thank you.

A land that you may want to add at some point which will be good for all the legendary angels/dragons in a kaalia deck is Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep. First strike in a kaalia deck can be a deadly ability.

Also this deck was the original that inspired mine.
