Thalia, Heretic Cathar Discussion
21 hours ago
If your goal is to adapt the deck to different playstyles, then I have some hate bears to recommend to you:
Gaddock Teeg is first and foremost. Thalia, Heretic Cathar is also quite strong and can give you time to respond to, say, a Krenko, Mob Boss deck producing 50+ goblin tokens with haste by controlling Umbral Mantle and Goblin Warchief, that would otherwise get a swift win by killing you (they can't all swing if they enter tapped, right?). This gives you another turn you would not have normally had to board wipe, cast a creature that may stymie that plan, etc..
Kataki, War's Wage is incredible. You barely run any artifacts, and taxing specific strategies can give you a strong edge (it hurts Arcum Dagsson and Sharuum the Hegemon, Voltron strategies that use equipment, etc.).
As for cuts to fit these in:
Mirri can go. She's just a beater, and you can do better than a beater. Giving her slot to Dosan or Kataki would be very beneficial for your deck.
Jareth, Leonine Titan is mediocre. Its only effective as a blocker, and you have creatures that already do that better. Thalia would be much lower in mana cost, slow down your opponents nonbasic lands, and shut off your opponent's creatures with haste. That's huge.
I also feel like you could do better than Jugan the Rising Star by slotting the other of Dosan or Kataki here: Much lower mana cost, more relevant abilities (5 +1/+1 counters isn't really that much).
That'd help lower your mana curve a little bit, as it's absurdly high right now which doesn't help the specific weaknesses this deck has against certain strategies, specifically Voltron.

I agree with Winterblast. I like an aggro Kaalia deck as much as the next guy but Kaalia is much more of a control deck over a pure aggro. I suggest that you add in a few control cards like Aven Mindcensor, Ethersworn Canonist, and both Thalia, Guardian of Thraben & Thalia, Heretic Cathar

Thanks for the +1s, and thanks for the suggestions RUST-O! I already have Thalia, Heretic Cathar in the deck- it works wonderfully with the theme. Gonti, Lord of Luxury isn't what I want to be doing. However, I will certainly test out Kambal, Consul of Allocation- I like the taxing effect he provides.

Ok, so i made these changes:
With these changes, I'm on 17 W 16 R.
I haven't been able to play with the deck since the changes, but today i will. After that, i think i will be able to do more tinkering and i will update the decklist.

Well lay out the deck and tell me how many white card and how many red card you have
That sounds like some good places to upgrade, Thalia, Heretic Cathar was definitely a good pick, first strike is powerful with always watching and she stops Glorybringers and slows lands down as she makes their duels come in tapped.

Damn! All your suggestions sound really good. Thanks for taking the time.
So, i visited my shop today and i managed to get these:
3x Thalia, Heretic Cathar (thought it could be a pretty nice beater for the deck, plus i found them really cheap)
2x Lone Rider
I might not have a use for all the creatures but I wanted to experiment with different possible combinations.
What do you think?

Foutch16 thanks for the feedback. I'm thinking that dropping Censor would be a good because it does get a lot worse as the game goes on. Also Dovin Baan,Thalia, Heretic Cathar have been pretty bad I must admit. Do you think if I bring in Fumigate that 2 copies would be better then just the 1 in the main board? Also if I drop the Dovin Baan and Thalia, Heretic Cathar completely should I keep Censor and bring in Essence Scatter for Dovin Baan and Thalia, Heretic Cathar then relegate the Censor to the sideboard?
