Sneak Attack


: You may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield. That creature gains haste. Sacrifice the creature at the beginning of the next end step.

I don't know how your theme is going to restrict your deck building but I can give you some insight on how Kaalia decks tend to function.

Kaalia has to hit the field with haste or your opponents will often have enough time to deal with her. Anger , Fervor , Ashling's Prerogative , etc. help you get the value of swinging with her or a fatty without it being removed immediately. Grand Abolisher is also fantastic at preventing interaction entirely.

Kaalia is plan A, but you will need a plan B and C incase your opponents prevent Kaalia from hitting the table. Finding other ways to cheat fat creatures into play should be a focus. Sneak Attack , Reanimate , Animate Dead , Necromancy , Strands of Night are all good options. If going the reanimation route be sure to include Buried Alive and Entomb to set up those plays.

In multiplayer Mana Geyser might just let you cast 2 fatties for 5 mana which feels really good. Also the new Smothering Tithe is a dream come true for greenless decks.

Big mana Mardu decks are fairly bad at drawing many cards so I suggest adding in Phyrexian Arena and Necropotence to keep your hand topped up. Or be like me and abandon card draw entirely by letting no one have a hand; Sire Of Insanity and Mindslicer make sure everyone is hellbent. Kaalia can become very difficult to remove when no one has cards in hand.

Also Emeria Shepherd is a super strong angel and is worth an include.

+1 for the deck.

I always believe there's a Timmy in all of us. Some suggestions:

Natural Order - Transform mana dorks into big fatties. I do note there aren't that many green fatties in the deck atm.

Sneak Attack - Cause sometimes, 1 hit is all your need to steal the game.

Cream of the Crop - Given the amount of fatties you run, some top of library filtering may help.

Fatal Frenzy / Rush of Blood - Doubling the power is good, Quadrupling it is orgasmic. At worst, they serve as redundancy for Xenagos.

Seize the Day - Now that your creature is all pumped up, why not take an additional 2 combat steps for a mere cost of .

A none card related suggestion - The blue card links don't stand out against the green background. If you're interested, we can explore ways to alter the font color to make reading the deck list more conducive. Let me know.

Hope the above helps. Cheers!

If you play Temur Sabertooth to bring Zacama back to hand, you should also play Sneak Attack

Sadly, Shalai, Voice of Plenty does not go into a Mardu deck as her activated ability with gives her green color identity.

I'd use that Phyrexian Reclamation in your sideboard along with Sneak Attack as another way to get these beefy creatures into play and be able to recur them cheaply.

With the casting costs of your creatures, I'd find a way to fit Thran Dynamo in, you could use a couple more pieces of ramp anyway and this seems like the first to include.

I like the inclusion of Liliana's Contract as card draw/alt win condition.

I've wanted to play Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip in a deck but haven't had the right home for it. [Maybe I'll find space in my Zurgo Helmsmasher deck]. Stoneforge Mystic would help get that puppy into play for cheaper [well, cheaper mana anyway] or Stonehewer Giant , which doesn't carry the pricetag and can equip the blade as a surprise during combat.

Overall I like where you are with the deck. Kind of makes me wish I could find a Kaalia so I could build a version.
