Charcoal Diamond Marble Diamond Orzhov Signet are solid relatively cheap (both budget and rocks for your ramping woes.

Talisman of Hierarchy is also fairly budget friendly

Other ramp/ramp adjacent options that aren't necessarily to theme but are in your colours. Pitiless Plunderer, Revel in Riches, Knight of the White Orchid, Kor Cartographer or Crypt Ghast

And just becos it's a card I like that's an angel, Angel of Despair is (albeit very expensive) flexible removal on a body.

Some Commander Legends updates:

weezel, Maralen of the Mornsong going back in supported by Opposition Agent, still not going as far as Stranglehold but Aven Mindcensor also not bad with it.

uninvited, Spire of Industry finally in, added the Vault of Whispers and Ancient Den as well as the Mox Opal to support. Thrill of Possibility has been good too at getting Worldgorger Dragon or Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker out of hand.

LordKunai, Leyline Tyrant just runs too slow, not going to commit him to the deck. Lion's Eye Diamond / Lurrus of the Dream-Den lines would be nice if you have a LED. Imperial Recruiter let's you really go for the Leonin Relic-Warder combo piece. If you want to go that route, I would remove the Worldgorger Dragon combo completely, and also include Recruiter of the Guard. I replaced Steelshaper's Gift with Open the Armory, wasn't a significant change. With it in though, I was thinking take Corpse Dance out since I have the extra Animate Dead tutor, which abandons the Dockside Extortionist / Corpse Dance line, which never happens anyway. WGD has T1 potentials (like my Buried Alive/Reanimate Line) but Bogardan Hellkite is SOOO bad, I was even thinking to try Omen of the Forge instead.

Need this card: Bogardan Drake, BR, Dragon, Flash, Flying, Haste 1/1. When Bogardan Drake enters the battlefield deal 1 damage to any target. Dash R or something lol to replace Bogardan Hellkite, there just isn't anything Flash/Instant in the game of magic.

I keep waffling on Plunge into Darkness, I think it helps more than hurts. I'm about 90% sure i'm going to take Angel of Despair or Corpse Dance to permanently add the tutor in.

there are a few cards that would help Seraph Sanctuary, Lyra Dawnbringer, Kaalia, Zenith Seeker, Bishop of Wings, Angel of Vitality, Speaker of the Heavens, Resplendent Angel

if you wanted to go more reanimation then, Angel of Despair, Angel of Serenity and maybe Angel of Sanctions, should be the main core of the deck, with spells like Unburial Rites, Collective Brutality and maybe mid rangey cards like The Eldest Reborn, Elspeth Conquers Death, Liliana, Death's Majesty

Hey, well done for your first deck from scratch.

Some cards within the current budget to consider adding:

Could add all these cards for about $26.

Cards to consider cutting:


Worldgorger Dragon is a tricky combo to assemble because Worldgorger needs to be in your graveyard to reanimate it with Animate Dead. You don't want to ever cast it from hand or cheat it onto the battlefield with Kaalia. Sneak Attack cheating it on the battlefield is fine because then it will end up in your graveyard and you get your permanents back. You want to get Worldgorger into your graveyard and the best budget card that can do that is Buried Alive.

Currently here Angel of Despair is the easy win condition with the Worldgorger combo by destroying all your opponents permanents. But what happens if Despair is disrupted or exiled? Kaalia, Zenith Seeker can be a more complex enabler with the combo needing haste for all the creatures you put into your hand and get onto the battlefield. Bogardan Hellkite can be another easy, even truer, win condition with the combo because it does damage to each player each time it ETB which will be infinite damage with the combo.

Good luck with your deck.

Wow, two posts while I was writing, okay... I'm evidently very slow at writing these...

as seen on Orzhov Locket, based partially on Angel of Despair, Deathpact Angel and High Priest of Penance:

Milana, First among Prelates

Legendary Creature - Angel

Whenever a nontoken creature you control dies, create a white 1/1 Thrull creature token with "When this creature dies, destroy target nonland permanent."

3/3


See above

Id probably aim for around 10 mana rocks, so like Orzhov Signet, Boros Signet, Rakdos Signet, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, Star Compass.

And then considering the whole game plan involves attacking with Kaalia, she needs more protection so she doesnt just die, like Darksteel Plate, Shielded by Faith, Gift of Immortality, Bastion Protector, Boros Charm, Gift of Doom. You probably want around 5 of those effects imho.

Your removal and boardwipes look great.

As for cuts, id say you dont need Akroma's Memorial, Serra the Benevolent, Herald of War, Angel of Condemnation, Angel of Despair, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Victory's Herald, Archangel Avacyn  Flip because when she flips she kills Kaalia.

Cards i really like for the deck are Deadeye Navigator, Kiora Bests the Sea God, Rune-Scarred Demon, Soul Herder, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling. A lot of cards i do like but didnt put in top 5 cause i think its like your preference on fav ETB triggers you wanna add.

Cards in the maybeboard i dont think should go in are, Baleful Strix, Angel of Despair, Ashen Rider, Render Silent, Disinformation Campaign and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth. Also Wishclaw Talisman will only be really good if you have repeatable ways to flicker it probably at instant speed, and Thassa's Oracle you will only want if youre going for a combo finish with her.
