Description

Standard Kaalia deck, with some protection for her, a fair amount of removal and card draw, and my favourite angels, dragons and demons.

My playgroup is rather casual, so I try to stay away from stuff that's "unfun" ie. oneshotting with infect, mass land destruction etc. That said, I've included the Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker/Restoration Angel combo to tutor up when games go too long.

I'll be upgrading the manabase as I get more money. Suggestions are always welcome.

Hey nice initial build, +1, fellow Kaalia of the Vast player, Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

You should include a secondary win-con into the deck, the standard Kaalia of the Vast is Crucible of Worlds + Armageddon + Ravages of War + Command Beacon + Strip Mine + Wasteland. Others are Worldgorger Dragon and/or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker which is the one I play. It's too hard to deal 40 damage to all 3 players, especially with your board position, it pulls attention of the other decks, even though the others may be driving toward their win-con combos.

Dragon Tempest has been really nice, CMC 2 Haste which is what Kaalia of the Vast needs, even more than protection. Without haste it will be a tough go.

Mother of Runes is a nice cheap re-usable protection as well.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is awesome, miss Phyrexia/Innistrad, but she isn't an A/D/D so tough to cast her. She will be too slow, albeit very controlling.

You have Brave the Sands use Angelic Field Marshal spot for something else. Maybe an Exquisite Archangel to hit the reset life button, or a Baneslayer Angel to lifelink who can be cast without Kaalia of the Vast, maybe Angelic Arbiter/Linvala, Keeper of Silence if you like the control aspect, or a Grand Abolisher which protect Kaalia of the Vast during your turn, which especially combos nice with the Haste.

I think Sheoldred, Whispering One again is someone that's not working with your overall game plan. The Praetors are way too awesome, but they are going to be far too slow for what you need to accomplish with Kaalia of the Vasts bar-brawl style of aggro play.

Sword of Feast and Famine works good with Hellkite Charger or an Aggravated Assault.

Steelshaper's Gift can pull a Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots which is better than a Hammer of Purphoros.

Citadel Siege is a little slow, your guys are already pretty big, not sure it's worth the 1 blocker tap-down.

Really cool, love Kaalia of the Vast, the mana will take a while but slowly work on it. Cheers.

Have you considered Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon as an option?

Or perhaps Conspiracy

Thanks for the input Spirits and DrValium! I've been staying away from land destruction, as my playgroup is more on the casual side, but I have made some edits based on your suggestions that should make the deck run smoother. Also, Conspiracy is something I've never seen before! I'll have to try it out!
