Creature — Demon Berserker
When Burning-Rune Demon enters the battlefield, you may search your library for exactly two cards not named Burning-Rune Demon that have different names. If you do, reveal those cards. An opponent chooses one of them. Put the chosen card into your hand and the other into your graveyard, then shuffle your library.

Okay, let's take a look at some of these. First note is, budget isn't really a concern, because pretty much all of my games are online these days, through servers like Cockatrice.
Master of Cruelty, Demonlord Belzenlok, and Burning-Rune Demon were all on my short list. Master of Cruelty is a little too build-around for my preference in this deck, but it's a great card. Belzenlok and B-R Demon would help to give it consistency, and Belzenlok in particular has a good chance of finding its way back in.
I had overlooked Dragon Tempest, so that's definitely going in.
I'll play around with Raphael, Fiendish Savior, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, and Rakshasa Debaser and see what they do for this deck. I especially like the lifelink, since this deck plays more recklessly than my usual style.
This is my first Demon tribal deck, so I'm still working out the details. The 6-8 mana slots fill up fast. Incidentally, how do you submit a deck to EDHrec?
Once again, thanks for the suggestions!

Gleeock, I actually missed the part of Burning-Rune Demon where an opponent chooses which card goes where, which severely limits the utility that I could gain from that creature, since both cards that I find would need to be a creature, to ensure that I could reanimate it, so I likely shall remain with Rune-Scarred Demon, in that case.

Another user suggested that I consider using Burning-Rune Demon, so what does everyone think of that creature?

Gleeock, that is an excellence suggestion! My Nekusar deck does not focus on reanimating creatures, so I shall stay with Rune-Scarred Demon for that deck, but my Tariel and Teneb decks could absolutely take advantage of Burning-Rune Demon, although I would like to have another user's opinion, before I finalize my decision on that matter.

Honestly, I would look at Burning-Rune Demon then you get to pitch something ridiculous to the graveyard & tutor a reanimation spell. I enjoy something like Vilis, Broker of Blood to the graveyard & Incarnation Technique to the hand, there are way more possibilities than that ranging in power level.

Would recommend lowering your mana curve, increase the ramp base, and add some tutors.
Depending on your budget, you should definitely run Green Sun's Zenith and Worldly Tutor, and perhaps squeeze in a Profane Tutor. Also cheap pick ups that are a must are Unmarked Grave, Reanimate, and Animate Dead.
If you don't want to run infinites (like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Walking Ballista), a nice non-infinite combo is Dauthi Voidwalker + Mindslicer + an infinite sac outlet (you should consider running also Carrion Feeder). Also if you run Phyrexian Delver, you can have your opponents lose around 20 life points each in a turn with Kokusho, the Evening Star (if Meren is also in play).
Cards I'd remove to accomodate the changes: Burning-Rune Demon, Khalni Ambush Flip, Hagra Mauling Flip, Dictate of Erebos, Read the Bones, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Tormod, the Desecrator, Springbloom Druid, Greater Good, Satyr Wayfinder.
I have a decklist which is semi-competitive and quite expensive, but I can guarantee it is nice to have the deck running faster, smoother, and without having your opponents targeting you as the archenemy form the beginning. Meren Surgical Toolbox [2K22].

Looks like fun, although I'm not sure you have enough card draw. Typically I would recommend Strionic Resonator in any Kaalia, but maybe a bit more draw if you really want to abuse her ability. Also not sure Isochron Scepter is necessary, but if you like it to have protection spells at the ready I guess I cant blame you. Also consider Burning-Rune Demon if you like being able to tutor, and Shadowgrange Archfiend from the crimson vow precon is a great way to keep your opponents in check. Hope these are helpful.

+1 Nice list, love the name. Some suggestions if I may:
It's imperative to get Kaalia out as soon as possible and start swinging. That being said I would suggest removing all of your three mana and higher rocks for two mana rocks. Smothering Tithe is a great card, but it's slow in a Kaalia build and is always a lightning rod for removal. I recently pulled it from my own list and haven't missed it since.
Seems like you have plenty of angels/ dragons/ demons to maybe not run out of gas, but I have to wonder with only 4 draw spells? Maybe the amount of tutors you have can help make up for this? Either way, I would recommend adding more draw spells to keep the hand full.
A couple of these are in you maybeboard, but some cards you might wanna try: Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx / Burning-Rune Demon / Necropotence / Syphon Mind / Harvester of Souls / Robe of Stars / Darksteel Plate / Serra's Emissary / Whispersilk Cloak / Teferi's Protection / Strionic Resonator.
Feel free to take a look at my Kaalia build on my page if your interested. Always love seeing another Kaalia build. Cheers.
