Hello! Firstly, thanks to everyone who has commented and +1'd, helping this deck to reach several top spots. Your support is greatly appreciated! This is my Kaalia MTG Card: Kaalia of the Vast EDH deck with lots of tutoring, battlefield effects MTG Card: Strionic Resonator and sneaky combos MTG Card: Master of Cruelties for laying down control early on and making awesome use of Kaalia's ability to unleash A/D/Ds for free. Before I run through, first, let me save you time and trouble by telling you, yes, I am aware of cards like Winter Orb and Defense Grid and, no, I don't want to reserve all my spots for slowing down the game or getting her out on T1. While I do include a few nasties MTG Card: Iona, Shield of Emeria , the goal is to be casual-competitive, not unfriendly. This deck wins without skimping out on everybody having a good time. With that said...

Iona, Shield of Emeria is one of my favourite creatures in Magic. You will usually name white or black and completely lock out the only players who can consistently disrupt Kaalia. Linvala, Keeper of Silence offers similar shutdown for any opponent who was planning to do more than just block and attack with their inferior commander. Avacyn, Angel of Hope acts as both a warm, protective blanket for Kaalia and an 8/8 flying shotgun! Her share of indestructibility makes it very difficult for opponents to deal with Kaalia, as do Grand Abolisher, Mother of Runes, Boros Charm, Maze of Ith, Ghostway and other protectives.

Aurelia, the Warleader + Kaalia of the Vast have exceptional synergy together: Bash face, drop fatty, REPEAT! We can cheat out both her and Avacyn in a single turn with Scourge of the Throne, or Kaalia of the Vast + Strionic Resonator or Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine untapping our lands over and over to create unlimited combat stages.

Nearly all the Demons included offer some type of utility. Rune-Scarred Demon is an ideal first creature for Kaalia to cheat out as he can tutor for something even bigger. Harvester of Souls provides additional draw, while Lord of the Void adds to the theme of recursion (Adarkar Valkyrie, Reanimate and Necromancy among a few). Master of 40 Life to 1 MTG Card: Master of Cruelties is THE demon Kaalia wants to bring out every game, though. The kill combo he pulls off if cheated out by Kaalia means that opponents need to consider twice about using that Hero's Downfall too soon! Master MTG Card: Master of Cruelties won't care about attacking alone since he never declared to attack to begin with. If unblocked, your opponent goes down to 1 life and Kaalia finishes them off in the same attack. Ouch!

Skittles MTG Card: Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is our big poisonous beatstick, while Kokusho, the Evening Star and Balefire Dragon provide different kinds of control over a game. Both are excellent in multiplayer. Utvara Hellkite can slowly take a game by himself by steadily turning the battlefield into a dragon party, irrespective of how Kaalia is getting on. It has nice synergy with Dragon Tempest; one of our many haste enablers for getting Kaalia out of the blocks quickly. Hellkite Tyrant is excellent removal for artifacts, and Hellkite Charger + Sword of Feast and Famine pulls off infinite combat phases.
