Kaalia, Zenith Seeker

Legendary Creature — Human Cleric

Flying, vigilance

When Kaalia, Zenith Seeker enters the battlefield, look at the top six cards of your library. You may reveal an Angel card, a Demon card, and/or a Dragon card from among them and put them into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Kaalia, Zenith Seeker Discussion

multimedia on Kaalia of the Vast

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.

Hi. The name of the post may be misleading. I just wanted to say that I was starting a project where I was going to build 8 different EDH decks. Each deck is going to be one of the different color combinations that include both White and Black. (Hence the title).

(I'm making these decks in real life). I just thought it would be cool to share my journey, as I've never really ever focused on having more than one deck at any given time.

Anyway, I will be updating this post here as I finish. (The rules say no deck lists here, but I'm sure you can find them on my profile. I'll put a note next to the ones that I have finished below). I really want to make these decks at least somewhat competitive with my limited knowledge, so any help is appreciated.

The current plan for the commanders is this:

BW- Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts

UBW - Ertai, the Corrupted

GBW - Anafenza, the Foremost Finished RBW - Kaalia, Zenith Seeker

URBW - Tymna the Weaver and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus

RGBW - Tana, the Bloodsower and Ravos, Soultender

UGBW - Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept

WUBRG - Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

(Subject to Change)

Rri's Greasy Suggestions

My understanding of the deck is that it's essentially a Sneak Attack style deck - put creatures in and muck face. The main goal with these suggestions is to get Kaalia of the Vast out by turn 2 or 3 and put more relevant threats down! Apologies if this isn't the most organized, but hope it helps.

Creatures:

Akroma, Angel of Fury - literally a 6/6 with firebreathing 90% of the time
Emeria Shepherd - even you complain about this one.
Kaalia, Zenith Seeker - Yes flavour, but fricken goofy card
Kambal, Consul of Allocation - What does gaining life do for you? I would only run him if you ran necropotence or equivalent
Mana-Charged Dragon - Nobody is paying into that lmao
Rakdos the Defiler - I get that you have big balls, but he's pretty much single use - I enjoy the meme though.
Iroas, God of Victory - I understand that he lets Kaalia get through, but that wouldn't be a problem if you could just get her out earlier.
Angel of Deliverance - If you're getting delirium with this deck at it's present state I'm super impressed.
Sorin, Grim Nemesis - There is better ways to draw cards and you can't cheat him into play

Lands:

Karoo Lands: They are decent, but you're missing out on precious early mana when you run them.
Nephalia Academy - This is the most Cam card I have ever seen, run Rogue's Passage if you want colourless utility.
Vivid Meadow: Again slow, run a City of Ass in this slot

Artifacts:

Armillary Sphere - If you are hell bent on this effect, run a Thaumatic Compass  Flip
Darksteel Ingot - 2 mana artifacts are way better for a turn 3 Kaalia.
Sunforger - Personally this doesn't do it for me, super mana intensive for the effect, especially when you have black for tutoring/card draw.

Instant and Sorceries

Mortify - Hello Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate or Generous Gift would like a word.
Tragic Slip - Despark seems a lot better!!

Enchantments

Ghostly Prison - You have fatties to smack people in face, if they swing at you, swing at them harder - or block :^)
Aura of Silence - You aren't on the stax path my son and you can find more efficient instant speed removal!
Akroma's Vengeance - Austere Command
Diabolic Tutor - Demonic Tutor
Orim's Thunder & Return to Dust - I would suggest just running a less expensive removal, or more flexible removal eg. Disenchant or Chaos Warp

Strategy:

I would suggest cards that more aggressively use your life total, you're playing an agro strategy and want to be firing on all cylinders!!

Card Draw and Tutoring

Necropotence - Draw a shit ton of cards, and more selection of what you want to put down with Kaalia.
Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper - Efficient card draw!
Faithless Looting, Tormenting Voice, Thrill of Possibility - Slot in these if you are planning on going a stronger recursion route.
Wishclaw Talisman - Fun tutor!
Enlightened Tutor - Finds you boots, sword, or whatever else you may need.
Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor - Need I say more?
Gamble - Put all your money on red lmao
Mausoleum Secrets & Diabolic Intent – Conditional Tutors which seem decent in this deck.

Creatures

Vilis, Broker of Blood - This card is insane, especially when you get to cheat him out.
Razaketh, the Foulblooded - Turns Kaalia into a huge toolbox, also really strong in the recursion route.
Archfiend of Despair - Doubles damage!!
Rakdos, Lord of Riots - Reduces the cost of your big creatures, letting you actually play them after you swing.
Sire Of Insanity - Discarding everyone's hand is pretty good for you, as this deck should be pretty good at top decking.
Scourge of the Throne & Hellkite Charger - More combat - wins with Sword of Feast and Famine!!
Resolute Archangel - A lot of the cards I'm suggesting are pretty hard your life total, resetting to 40 with a Necropotence out is pretty gross.

Kaalia Tings

Sneak Attack - Does pretty much the same thing as Kaalia.
Karmic Guide, Reya Dawnbringer, Primevals' Glorious Rebirth, Animate Dead, Living Death, Phyrexian Reclamation - Recursion is super strong, plus you run a shit ton of legendaries for rebirth. As an aside, Leonin Relic-Warder gives infinite ETB with Animate Dead - something to keep in mind.
Legion's Initiative - Pretty flexible protection, also making Kaalia a 3/3 is pretty relevant.
Aggravated Assault - Even more combat, wins you the game with Sword of Feast and Famine.
Kaya's Ghostform - Leave it and forget it protection for Kaalia.

Mana

Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Conviction, Fellwar Stone - even potentially Mind Stone - 2 mana rocks are super good as they enable the turn 3 Kaalia.
Wayfarer's Bauble - An all star, also Kaalia turn 3.
Lotus Petal - SPEEDY
Nyx Lotus or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - A lot of your creatures have super high devotion, take advantage of that.
Caves of Koilos, Battlefield Forge, Sulfurous Springs, Sacred Foundry, Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt, Luxury Suite, Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, Rugged Prairie, Fetid Heath, Silent Clearing, Sunbaked Canyon, Tainted Field - or even more basics: Untapped coloured lands!!

I would recommend a blink style deck, you could switch out some of the creatures with Angels, Demons, And Dragons with enter the battlefield effects, and put in some blink spells too double up on activations, along with getting multiple triggers of Kaalia, Zenith Seeker to seach through your deck faster and get more cards in your hand. Then to play those cards you can replace a couple lands with ramp to start sooner and have more explosive turns. I made a EDH deck with Kaalia, Zenith Seeker the other day if you wanna use it as a card pool to look at. Kaalia Deck

For style purposes, I mostly kept my build tailored to angels. That said I do have a dragon so I don't see why I can't slap in a high-impact demon or two. It helps make the most of Kaalia, Zenith Seeker's effect. Vilis, Broker of Blood looks absolutely busted. I can see why you'd be running Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel in your build.

I'm thinking Chandra, Torch of Defiance can be cut. I put her under draw but she doesn't really do that. The is nice but not really necessary.

Thanks for the tips! I'll tinker with it.

I really think your deck would benefit from having 3x Kaalia, Zenith Seeker I think it would speed up your deck and make it so you can do whatever you want when you want.

Make a Voltron style deck using Kaalia, Zenith Seeker as the commander. Angels, Dragons and Demons are not necessary. I want her vigilance to be utilized for defensive purposes too like adding cards such as High Ground . Thanks!
