Unfinished Kaalia needs HELP

Commander Deck Help forum

I'm making a Kaalia of the Vast deck and I need a ton of help, right now it's just a bunch of cards from my inventory.

If I had more time I would write something a little more substantial, but I will just say to you to check out edhrec.


From here you can from the top of the page take a look at the average Kaalia decklist, then also look at popular choices in the deck. Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Rune-Scarred Demon, and Iona, Shield of Emeria are some of the most common choices. Some of these angels, demons and dragons are slightly expensive, so Im sure you can put in some cheaper alternatives (like Archfiend of Depravity, Pestilence Demon,Indulgent Tormentor etc), as magic has no shortage of these creature types since there literally is at least 1 printed every new set!

Let me know if you have other questions though still, and I can try my best to help when Im less busy.

I play a fairly well-tuned Kaalia deck, so hopefully it can provide a bit of inspiration The Destruction Will Be Vast

There are a few staples that absolutely need to be in your deck, such as: Master of Cruelties, Boros Charm, Wrath of God, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, etc. After that, you can add your own flavor by going with extra creature hate, land destruction, indestructible spells and artifacts, board wipes, etc.

In terms of the demons, dragons and angels, try to focus on those with complimentary abilities to your design. ETBs are stronger than attack triggers, as when you cheat in with Kaalia, you skip the attack action and thus the triggers as well. Some of the decisions on who stays and who goes will be based on your specific build of complimentary spells, so make sure to play test it a lot and find out whose value is greatest.

Good luck with your build.
