Hey saw you commented on my deck... It wasnt ready to go up i was editing it in 3 different places at once and saved teh wrong one with the wrong name and the wrong public status. which apparently sent it to the world. So i fixed that for now.

Thanks for the input most of it was already in the works honestly. Although that Soul Warden was a better find than the Suture Priest than i had.

Also the Leveler + Timesifter is a combo with Glacial Chasm and/or Teferi's Protection so if you need to go to the bank or leave to get food but you still want the win. There was another card other than Leveler that removed the library in such a away and this combo went off without the possibility of a loss.. as it stands if someone can force you to draw you lose.. but i cant find the combo online anymore it seems to have vanished and i cant remember or find the other card for it. But you are right about the GY hate.. i need more and yes i dont want the muldrotha players getting more gy.. but im the only one in my playgroup with a muldrotha deck atm :P

KongMing Thank you for your suggestions. Aligned Hedron Network is really a niche card. Could be good against some decks in my group but would be a dead card otherwise. It really depends on your meta but it is not bad. I run Suture Priest in my Trostani deck and it didn't helped much yet. It hasn't prvoked the big life loss or token stop, yet. Mostly it got countered or destroyed right away when someone plays tokens. I'll consider Chord of Calling, but semms a bit too situational at the moment. Blade of Selves is expensive mana wise but could bring an opponent down in a swing. I will test it for sure! Conjurer's Closet reads good, especially with a defender who also has card draw like Wall of Blossoms or Axebane Guardian.

UndeadSpider1990 Thank you for your suggestion, but like HobbyGamer007 said, Myth Unbound isn't that good of a card and reads a lot better than it is. Sadly Command Beacon wasn't reprinted with C18, so it's still expensive and I wan't to keep this deck budget friendly.

What about Chord of Calling to sneak Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive in on the declare attackers step? Or someone else's end step if you want to save the mana for the turn you go all out.

Aligned Hedron Network is a niche, global O-Ring that has the ability of not pissing off everyone at the table. Might be good if you have one or two Zoo players at the table that the low-power token decks won't mind you neutering.

You mentioned that there are a lot of token decks in your pod. For that, I recommend Suture Priest. It gives you a bit of lifegain from your creatures hitting the battlefield, and also gives you some defense against opposing token decks. Sure, they can make 40 1/1 Saprolings, as long as they don't mind losing 40 life for them. (:

I know Ajani's Welcome is kinda like another sister, but the fact that it only triggers on your creatures plus the fact that it doesn't bring a body with it makes it a little subpar in my eyes... If you really want a third sister, consider Auriok Champion or potentially Suture Priest. Champion blocks bloodbraid, angler, tasigur, death's shadow, and more all day long so that's the option I'd go for. Mark of Asylum is.. strange to see in a list like this. If you enjoy playing it then go for it, but I think you may be better suited running more threats or anthems. I could understand bringing it in from sideboard against decks playing Anger of the Gods or Sweltering Suns, but mainboard it feels like a wasted slot. Just my opinions though, if you like it the way it is then rock on :)

I would replace Blood Seeker with Suture Priest as it does the exact same thing, same CMC, same ease to cast, and very cheap to purchase.

Desecration Demon isn't really doing much here. His whole theme is to have a cheap 6/6 flyer that an opponent can stall out to prevent it from attacking them. But the cheap is irrelevant because we're playing kaalia. So let's expand on its secondary purpose, making an opponent punish him/herself to stop you from doing something you really lack, card draw, with Indulgent Tormentor

Mad Prophet is honestly not a good card. Its 4CMC to replace itself. For better card draw that you can cheat out, consider Bloodgift Demon. It is also a very political card for EDH.

Malakir Cullblade doesn't fit the theme of this deck. Malakir relies on your opponents to let him grow into a threat when the theme of this deck is to cheat out creatures that are already threats. Deaths usually don't happen unless you're dealing with a sacrifice themed deck. Instead, consider Strionic Resonator This card is also 2 CMC and is fantastic in this deck as you already have a lot of triggered ability creatures and more importantly, it works with Kaalia allowing you to go from cheating 1 giant creature for free per turn to cheating 2 giant creatures for free for 2 mana of any color.

I would replace Wild Guess with Boros Charm. It is just too good and versatile not to have, especially in a deck like this.

Hello there chadsansing, thanks for your suggestions. I wish I had room for all the different kinds of sideboard tech.

One big question I have is what do you think of Trespasser's Curse and Suture Priest? Are they good mainboard cards, only good in certain matchups, or should I swap them for better clerics like Daunting Defender or burn spells like Sovereign's Bite?

At risk of turning this into a Soul Sisters tokens deck, you could use Soul Warden, Essence Warden, Suture Priest, and/or Soul's Attendant. It would take advantage of all your creature ETBs to give you some life gain on top of it. They also give you some Turn 1 plays, which you have none of right now.
