Kaalia Monster Mash

Commander / EDH*

kgrey2


Description

Kaalia was my first EDH deck. She's just a great first stepping stone. A little redundant. But every release I'm hoping for new ETB Angels, Demons, and Dragons. It's a little moulded to my play group, but I think an effective casual-esque deck. Suggestions are welcome.

Seems like you might run into the problem of having a bunch of 8 drops in your hand and no Kaalia. Some more mana rocks would add a lot more consistency.

marduedh I definitely agree with you. That can and does happen. I used to run Quicksilver Amulet as a Kaalia backup, but it was little lackluster when Kaalia did land and swing or if I didn't have several creatures in hand. I tried to focus on getting Kaalia out as fast as possible and searching up protection for her. I'm working up the courage to buy a Mana Crypt and have yet to add the Chrome Mox I have. What were you thinkng specifically? Also what cards are weak here or could be replaced?

kgrey2 I would say definitely get the Mana Crypt. I know it's expensive, but it's worth it. It's the reason my Alesha deck can win on turn 2. I would suggest Thran Dynamo and Worn Powerstone for sure. Dragon Tempest and Armageddon both stick out to me as seeming weak. And while I love graveyard shenanigans as much as the next guy, they seem kinda just thrown in for the hell of it here. Also, you need to work swords to Plowshares in. Because it's swords.

marduedh Ya I totally agree with the Crypt. It's amazing. I'm definitely re-adding the Quicksilver Amulet, that'll help with mana and as a Kaalia failsafe. I'm considering the Thran Dynamo, but I don't think I'd ever put Worn Powerstone in any deck. Too slow for not enough benefit. Graveyard stuff is for multiplayer and believe me it helps a lot. Especially if you lose something important. I like Swords to Plowshares, but I already run a Path, Swords seems a little counterproductive especially if I'm hitting a big creature. Also once I figure out what I'm gonna switch around for my Chrome Mox I'd rather put in a Terminate or something multicolored if I was gonna add removal.
