Thanks for pointing that out! I've replaced it with Damnation .

I like the decision to go with land hate especially after Kaalia is out. Would be interesting to see against my Kaalia deck. But definitely an upvote.

But I would add a little more white source mana though.

All of the cards with triple white in their casting cost can be put into play with Kaalia of the Vast, so I'm not too worried about that. I would like to get my hands on a Plateau, a Scrubland, and a Badlands though!

Pretty heavy on the field wipes, I like it. Anyone considering a deck like this should also consider including Cataclysm as well. It lets you keep Kaalia and gives you a huge advantage over your opponents.

polar: Thanks for the suggestion! I've replaced Merciless Eviction with Cataclysm.

I'm really sad that you're not running Master of Cruelties

Lord of the Void? Boros Charm for when you want to wipe stuff but don't have Avacyn ready yet. You have resto angel, but by herself she is more utility for when something major like kaalia is locked down and needs a cloudshift effect. Maybe add in Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker for her to have more of an effect. Aggravated Assault, Winter Orb? I have my own Kaalia deck that I've been tweaking for awhile now:)

I had Lord of the Void but I never found him to be pulling his weight so I cut him. Most of my opponents run decks with low creature counts so he never got me anything good.

I like the idea of Boros Charm, I've been thinking about adding in Sunforger too so that would be another spell to fetch!

Winter Orb is awesome, I'm not sure why I haven't thought of using it here. Thanks for the suggestions!

If your deck is really this expensive why dont you have the Unhinged lands, they are by far the best basic lands, they come in foil. Also no Deflecting Palm when you have boros colors?!?!?!?

March 14, 2017 9:57 p.m.

also technically you can't have Polluted Delta because its color ID is blue and black

March 14, 2017 10:01 p.m.

I love Scourge of the Throne for Kaalia, you can dump 2 things onto the battlefield per turn if you find yourself in a tricky situation. Not only that, Dethrone makes him more and more of a threat.

March 21, 2017 4:54 a.m.

scheerlc8520 Lands don't have color identities and fetch lands don't generate mana, so Polluted Delta is perfectly legal in my deck. I never cared for the Unhinged lands. Deflecting Palm is a decent suggestion but it's not great for my play group.

DoctorScarfI like Scourge of the Throne, thanks for the suggestion!

I was misinformed by my lgs I guess, Well it's good to know. Mountain unhinged basic lands are my favorite

April 2, 2017 8:43 p.m.

Gorgosaurusrex you're welcome!

I can't help but wonder why everyone else seems to like running Sunforger without Reito Lantern. O.o It's odd to me, but I'm quite strange, myself, lol.

There are a few things you might wanna consider adding to your package, as well, depending on your meta. Rakdos Charm is good for grave hate and utterly hilarious against token strategies or in response to someone's Triumph of the Hordes. >=3 Orzhov Charm is a good get out of jail free card for Kaalia, and can be used to rez your Mother of Runes, if needed. Hide/Seek is a decent combo breaker, Master Warcraft is a bit situational, but still fun, and Return to Dust is a long-lived staple in the format; one which may be especially useful against a Breya, Etherium Shaper deck, if they get their impending Darksteel Forge out.

Your creature package is also impressive, though I'm not sure how I feel about Malfegor I prefer Thundermaw Hellkite over him, personally, but that's your call to make.

All-in-all, though, this deck is not bad at all. In fact, it inspired my own's redesign, when I was looking to convert it into a Sunforger build. :)

Kaalia is great. Nice list.

Have you tested with a heavier creature build? I wonder how many cards are dead draws after an Armageddon. Crux of Fate might be useful to test in place of one of your other wrath effects.

You might find other suggestions over at Snow-Covered Kaalia, a list I'm working on right now.

Happy brewing!
