I would cut young Ojutai (Soul of Winter) for Sunscorch Regent or Eternal Dragon

That's an example of a competitive kaalia deck for some ideas. You have some good stuff in there, but at after a quick glance, there were some cards that just don't really do anything. You're trying to win the game and not die. Cards like Wispweaver Angel and Sunscorch Regent don't really do much. You don't seem to have enough etb effects to abuse the angel, and a if your dying to infinite combos, life gain is irrelevant. Same goes for Exquisite Blood.

Kamigawa dragons Keiga, the Tide Star and Yosei, the Morning Star are great on their own in this deck. However, along with them, run Rite of Replication because of how you can combo it with these dragons by targeting one or the other with kicker. For Keiga, this means stealing 5 creatures. For Yosei, this means tapping 25 permanents and skipping up to 5 untap steps spread amongst your opponents, and this effect can stack too; say you only have one opponent and you get this combo off, that opponent can't untap for 5 turns in a row while 25 (basically all) their stuff is tapped, effectively giving you 5 extra turns in a row. And you get to keep your original Yosei or Keiga. And with those dragons on the field, using Rite of Replication to copy, say, Sunscorch Regent 5 times is still pure value given Ojutai's effect. Also, I'd run Cyclonic Rift over those blue "wipes" any day. Sleep is better than Icy Blast. Blind Obedience over Kismet which helps snag all players and is more political. As for counterspells, you have a lot of cheap options with this commander. Counterspell should be a staple for control decks, as leaving up 2 islands is not at all an investment. Silumgar's Scorn to get a second one. Stubborn Denial and Swan Song are great for what they do, and Mystic Confluence and Cryptic Command for great utility. Wouldn't run the Gideon because he doesn't offer much for the deck really. Nevinyrral's Disk should probs get replaced by Hour of Revelation for it will only ever cost 3 white mana in a multiplayer game, and Nevinyrral's gives your opponents too much time to prepare for it while also painting a target on your back. I think those are the main points for now. +1 from me. I'm a sucker for anything Ojutai; I used to run a voltron control deck with Dragonlord Ojutai, and now I run a voltron/control/spell-sling with Taigam, Ojutai Master at Ojutai's Mystification.

Bluemechanic Crackling Doom seems spicy, thanks for the tip! Carnage Gladiator is a pet card that's most likely first to go, but it hasn't seen play yet. Sunscorch Regent is the same case but it tends to grow quite nicely.

@MegaMatt13: Hey there Matt. Glad you enjoy reading my dissertations. I am also glad that you agree with the servants removal. I just think for what he does, it just seems lackluster and having a dork that can make mana for any spell is much more relevant. Selvala's Stampede is game winning when played on turn 3. Also yes, I played Selvala's Stampede on turn 3 in a game. It got me my Deathrite Shaman, Hellkite Tyrant(who proceeded to steal my opponents Chromatic Lantern), and a Savage Ventmaw. The ramp that game was so good. Nobody caught up and my dragons just ate everything.

One reason why I didn't add Dragon Broodmother is because I don't own her and the fact that she costs 3 red and 1 green as a requirement scares me a little, but I understand why one puts her in. She is good, however, another card I have considered was Skyline Despot. Become the monarch and make tokens if you keep the monarch, seem pretty decent.

I have also consider Phyrexian Arena, which when combined with Sunscorch Regent, basically kills off the negative side effect of the arena. I also really want to add back in Herald’s Horn. The discount and potential card draw is nice, have there been times it has whiffed, yes it has, but it still does its job well. No clue where to put it right now. I personally like Herald’s Horn over Dragonspeaker Shaman but I can understand the dispute that is coming from this. I really think I prefer cost reduction spells to be in form of enchantments and artifacts instead of creatures.

Slaughter - seems good with extort stuff

Esper Panorama - more fetch lands!

Righteous Cause, Patron of the Kitsune - life gain off anyone attacking

Consuming Vapors - kill spell and life gain

Well of Lost Dreams - card draw!

Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant lots of life gain

Disciple of Bolas - do this with a big Sunscorch Regent then draw into Aetherflux Reservoir to kill somebody lol

maybe more lose life draw cards nonsense like Sign in Blood, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Bloodgift Demon, Corpse Augur, Hoarder's Greed, Night's Whisper, Promise of Power, Wretched Confluence

I hope you get to enjoy the fun of finding hidden gems in all the cards you have sitting around! Let me know if you want to debate any cards!!!
