Hello fellow Kaalia enthusiast! Inserts obligatory link to my own deck: Still Better than Dan Brown.... Right, with that out of the way...firstly, I notice that while you call this a reanimator deck and have plenty of ways to cheat things out of the graveyard, you're missing things to stack it with. Cards like Entomb and Buried Alive would let you sculpt your graveyard into the perfect stockpile of threats. If you didn't already have loads I would recommend another actual wrath over Terminus considering you have more ways to get creatures back out of the graveyard than your library, but with that being the case you might be better off with either more unconditional removal (Vindicate/Anguished Unmaking) or even Armageddon if you don't mind having no friends. Aurelia's Fury and Boros Charm are great modal spells too! Honestly can't recommend Reconnaissance highly enough but Dust Corona and Phyrexian Reclamation do work for me. As for creatures, I wouldn't bother with Bloodgift Demon (take Rune-Scarred Demon for loops with Reya and a sac outlet such as Razaketh, the Foulblooded); Bogardan Hellkite (you'll probably do more overall with Warstorm Surge or the new Terror of the Peaks); Indulgent Tormentor (your opponents won't ever hesitate to pay the cost and the body is underwhelming for a demon); Vampire Nighthawk (good card but this deck can do better, for similar cost a Magus of the Moat or Grand Abolisher can make you very hard to assail). I'd suggest considering Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Doom Whisperer and Rakdos, Lord of Riots as other strong picks for potential upgrades. Finally you've got a decent mana base, but I'm a little surprised to see no fetches/utility lands like Volrath's Stronghold considering you have actual legacy duals. How can you be running a Scrubland but be unable to upgrade your Forsaken Sanctuary to a Godless Shrine and still be playing with Temple of the False God? This last one is one of the worst lands out there considering it can easily be a dead draw and doesn't even give you colour - you're running plenty of basics so even an Evolving Wilds would be better in almost every case! Anyways hope that's given you some ideas.

SynergyBuild, at first I just read the title and replied.
I just read the rest of it and I do have a different card. My card is Vampire Nighthawk.
That card amazed me. I knew very lil about magic at this time. Lifelink and deathtouch were awesome to me and spawned a frenzy in me. Wanting to know all the best creatures with deathtouch and lifelink. This was before I started playing edh. The first edh deck I built was Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet. I had built it with vampire tribal in mind (inspired by the vampire nighthawk), it was so much fun. My first combo was Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, and everyone hated it so much. At this time infinite combos in my group were frowned upon very much so. Another cool card I really liked in that deck was Painful Quandary they also really hated this card alot lol. At this time my group was new to cmdr and didn't understand the importance of card draw and removal, including myself. The next combos I assembled in this deck before I took it apart was Bloodchief Ascension and Mindcrank, then Sanguine Bond and Blood Tribute. The deck also contained Rise of the Dark Realms and Army of The Dammed . Again at the time was very reliable win condition cards.

Akroma, Angel of Wrath nets you flying, first strike, vigilance, trample and haste.
Vampire Nighthawk nets you flying, deathtouch and lifelink.
Carnage Tyrant is a great threat and gets you trample and hexproof back.

I have also made a Kathril list, feel free to check it out for inspiration BWGs Life. Some stuff I say here is in that deck list description. The biggest thing is that you can get all the keywords you need to one hit in this deck with just three creatures in your graveyard.
Zetalpa, Primal Dawn and Bassara Tower Archer OR Knight of Malice and Kunoros, Hound of Athreos OR Vampire Nighthawk will get you there. This helps specifically with Buried Alive. Jarad's Orders and Entomb would be good for placing critical creatures in the yard.
I also think these cards that just draw like Night's Whisper can be replaced by similar costed cards that put more things in your graveyard like Winding Way. IMO just drawing cards is not really that good if you can't set up your commander.
I also think some of the creature choices could be better, you can get more keywords for less mana.

Hey SnakeByte77 I took a look and Vampire Nighthawk isn't legal in pioneer unfortunately. If it were I would think it would be worth adding. I like that it picks up counters from Vraska, Swarm's Eminence really well. Making a modern version of this deck would be cool as well. Thanks for the comment!

Vampire Nighthawk is a must in this deck because it gives so much value for its CMC, it can also swing more freely since it has flying.
