Vow of Duty Discussion

chadsansing on Kaalia of the Vast by Cptspa

1 day ago

I really like Angelic Accord and Eternal Thirst. I wonder also about Archangel of Thune and Gisela, the Broken Blade for life gain.

Winter Orb seems like it would draw a lot of hate on top of Kaalia of the Vast. Would you consider more political cards like Vow of Duty, Vow of Lightning, or Vow of Malice? Or is your local playgroup competitive enough to enjoy an orb now and again?

With a few more rocks like Chromatic Lantern and Fellwar Stone or Worn Powerstone, you might have the fixing and ramp to cast your creatures in addition to cheating them into play, which might make it even better to play more creatures and fewer other types of spells. I try to do that to avoid playing from the control seat with this deck - my playgroup hates on Kaalia enough.

If you'd like to see another creature suite, check out Snow-Covered Kaalia. Rimescale Dragon is my favorite there, hence the snow-covered basics.

Have fun building & playing!

As your deck list is pretty big so I thought I would give you some ideas for cards to cut.

Akroma, Angel of Fury: good, but does not have a big enough effect for commander

Anger: you're only running 2 mountains

Dragon Whelp, Serra Angel, Orzhov Guildmage, Ichor Wellspring: not large enough effect

Dread Cacodemon, Reiver Demon I'm not sure about this but I don't think Kaalia's ability qualifies as casting it

Duergar Hedge-Mage good card but again, you are only running 4 mountains and 6 plains

Fallen Angel: you don't really have a use for a sac engine.

Jayemdae Tome: Just not great

Wrecking Ball no need for land destruction and there is better creature removal

Soul Snare: better options, ie Swords to Plowshares

Ghostly Prison:fine cared but has no real reason to be in this deck

Vow of Duty: just run a removal spell

Earthquake, Evincar's Justice, Pyrohemia, Sulfurous Blast: The mardu colors are the king of board wipes, run something better. ie. Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Wrath of God, Chain Reaction, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Decree of Pain to name a few

Congregate: don't need the life gain. Unless of course you play lots of token decks

Liliana of the Dark Realms: you have 3 swamps

you have a good amount of good creature but because your commander relies on your hand here are some more card draw ideas:Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Bloodgift Demon, Damnable Pact, Dragon Mage, Erebos, God of the Dead, Harvester of Souls, Necrologia, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Skeletal Scrying, Underworld Connections, Wretched Confluence, and Read the Bones.

More additional combat phase spell would also greatly benefit you. World at War, Aurelia, the Warleader, Fury of the Horde, Hellkite Charger, Relentless Assault, Savage Beating, Scourge of the Throne, Seize the Day, Waves of Aggression

in case you haven't already you may want to check out https://edhrec.com/commanders/kaalia-of-the-vast for more card ideas.

Looks like a great start, hope my comments were helpful

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). The deck doesn't really fit into the model well since many of the cards overlap by just being enchantments that there's a lot of categories/single cards that only care if other enchantments get played.

The deck itself cost a lot to get rolling and I like where the ramp sits right now even if it's a bit high on cards, but being a 5 color deck has its requriements. I'd like to increase the number of cost reduction cards. And slightly increase the number of draw, and combo cards. If I had to I would probably remove some of the buff/removal/graveyard cards. The issue I have though is that I want to keep the same number of creatures as early agression is this decks downfall. If I could I would also update the mana base and then be able to cut some of the ramp cards.

Number of enchantments: 36 (a * represents that this card cares about enchantments) (15 are auras)

Mana (14)

Ramp(10):

Mana fixing(2):

Cost reduction(2):

Tutor(9) *

Enchantment tutor(6):

Graveyard(3):

Draw(6):*

Removal(7):

Protection(5):

Combo(8):

Buff(4):

Other(8):

Dulcet Sirens is the wrong color, but it's so perfect :(

Crown of Doom is fine. You can just have a bunch of cards that say "all creatures must attack" like Basandra, Battle Seraph and Warmonger Hellkite and then have things like Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety to force opponents to either pay to attack you or attack someone else.

Also, with the must attack cards, the Vow cycle seems perfect from an older commander set. In your colors they are Vow of Lightning, Vow of Malice, and Vow of Duty.
