Looks awesome, but it feels kinda wrong to not include Heartless Hidetsugu. That sweet combo kil will Solphim feels too good.

I use to run a land destruction version of Kaalia years ago. Since then she’s move to faster kills by bleeding the opposition. Ravages of War is another mass land d card but will cost you $.

I’m surprised you’re not running Dragon Mage as a wonder wheel draw effect. Keen Duelist helps kill your opponents due to your higher cmc while offering increased draw.

Dragon Tempest is a staple for Kaalia and abused by incorporating Utvara Hellkite and Ancient Gold Dragon, amplified with running Terror of the Peaks. I don’t run a ton of dragons so I chose to keep out Utvara as it’s more situational in my deck.

You might find use in Mudslide and Circle of Flame. I run Mudslide and Moat.

Talismans > Signets, try hitting about 10-11 mana rocks. In Archenemy games where you’re the threat, Kaalia is just the decoy for removal while you more easily hard cast your threats. Quicksilver Amulet and Sneak Attack are good avenues around losing Kaalia as well, but have you considered Sundial of the Infinite which gets rid of sneak attacks drawback and opens combat combos and infinite turns to your arsenal? Maybe too much of you want to keep casual.

The Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood aren’t honestly needed in here. Archfiend of Depravity, Wound Reflection, Sower of Discord, Scourge of the Skyclaves, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight,and Heartless Hidetsugu are functionally better choices to utilize and synergize/combo.

Max_Hammer on When does Heartless Hidetsugu check …

6 months ago

Let's say my opponent is at 8 life. If I have the aforementioned Heartless Hidetsugu and tap him, holding priority, and then, to use a card relevant to most metas, Rhystic Lightning them. They take 4 damage, going down to 4, but does Heartless Hidetsugu's ability then deal 4 damage or 2?

TLDR; Does he check life total upon activation or upon resolve?

If the answer to above question is upon activation, can I double tap an opponent by activating Heartless Hidetsugu, untapping him via Patriar's Seal or some equivalent ability, tap him again, and deal their life half their life total twice (assuming they're at an even life total)?

Thanks, might play Riku. I’m really just trying to find a deck that’s fun to play and good for a beginner. I think I made the start of myHeartless Hidetsugu deck public. What do you think of that

Heartless Hidetsugu is a great choice. To pitch some other ideas, Isshin, Two Heavens as One (not really underrated, but versatile and budget-friendly), Kaervek the Merciless, Astarion, the Decadent, and Riku of Two Reflections (not underrated, but fun and because I'm only suggesting cards so far). You know what you want, though, so no hard feelings if these aren't what you're looking for.

I second the motion for Heartless Hidetsugu. One big murderous hit could end the game.

Pyrohemia buffs you boss and can take out blockers. Earthquake

Maybe Soul Conduit for giggles and life gain decks
