Spirits on Kaalia of the Cruel

3 days ago

Hey LordKunai,

Here's some recommendations, budget conscious where I can be.

Lightning Greaves is a critical component of Kaalia of the Vast , I play multiple tutors for it, like Steelshaper's Gift and Stoneforge Mystic . Lightning Greaves is a must, if you can't connect a Haste Kaalia of the Vast swing your going to have a bad time.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is a staple, the double ended effect is really the key. She is a bit pricey, so I'll offer some other options tool.

Angel of Despair , I believe is $0.25, another key removal for any permanent! like an Omniscience and drop her in off of an opponents Show and Tell . #Winning

Lands are important, but expensive, Blood Crypt because it's both a Swamp and Mountain is good, Godless Shrine same idea but Plains . Works with the check lands like Isolated Chapel .

Anguished Unmaking & Path to Exile good removal if you have, expensive to buy elsewise. Utter End & Mortify are cheaper alternatives but still exceptional removal spells.

Battlefield Forge is cheap and gives good color indexing. Diabolic Tutor is still okay at CMC4 and very inexpensive to all the reprinting of this tutor.

I would try and hone in on a desired goal and synergize around that. Mine is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel , Land Destruction / Indestructible, Liliana's Contract / Shadowborn Apostle type decks, Worldgorger Dragon , Extra Combat Phases.

You have a little bit of Legendary sub-theme, some protecting yourself and Kaalia of the Vast sub-theme Magus of the Moat / Boros Charm , some recursion with Phyrexian Reclamation . You've got a very strong base of cards, once you pick a synergy, you definitely want to synergize around those core abilities.

You have lots of great cards, and I bet it's extremely fun to play! The Signet's are good, Talisman of Indulgence is cheap and better, I also feel like in most situations Fellwar Stone is better than the signet too. But because of the cost of the other mana sources, augmenting with Signets is a fantastic idea.

I don't like Subterranean Tremors , small ground walkers should matter too much to you, and all of your ramp comes from artifacts so destroying those is not a great idea. If your getting a Lizard, something is off the rails. Something like Vandalblast is better for Artifact control.

Never been a fan of Rogue's Passage , CMC5 for unblockable is too much, perhaps try something like Shizo, Death's Storehouse .

Crackling Doom another card that gets around indestructible, but so do things like Utter End or Anguished Unmaking . Crackling Doom is very unlikely to get what you really need it to solve.

Chancellor of the Annex doesn't seem strong enough for the CMC7, or Stax enough. Odric, Lunarch Marshal seems a little out of place, the A/D/D are pretty tough on their own, if you have enough where engaging Odric, Lunarch Marshal to multiply their abilities you should be winning anyway without him.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip is similar to Angelic Guardian but a little more versatile.

Sneak Attack another way to cheat things in, similar to Quicksilver Amulet .

I don't see anything out of place here, other than some of my comments.

Adarkar Valkyrie has many infinite combos (like infinite combat with Aurelia, the Warleader ) for example. I have a bunch under my Alternative Synergies Considered if your interested. She's powerful, can establish some combos, and fits the build in a budget format.

Once again, thank you Gadianten, for your comment. I'll try and explain why I choose to not run the cards you mentioned.

Brass Squire and especially Semblance Anvil are interesting, but I found to not be worthwhile. Although they let you play your equipment, and equip them faster, the deck doesn't need them. Since they are quite clunky as they are at 3CMC, and only help with half the mana cost of equipment, being that one only helps equip, the other only helps cast. As such I try and keep my mana ramp to low CMC, being 1 CMC tutors and 2 CMC Dowsing Dagger  Flip and Sword of the Animist .

Leonin Shikari , was in the deck for quite a while, but was consistently found to be too low impact. I'm not interested in moving most equipment around once they get onto Kemba, Kha Regent . It does work well with some equipment but proved to be not worthwhile.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin , also used to be in the deck, and it was there for a really long time. It always ended up just being a bad Plains . It is a powerful card, and the opportunity cost for running it here is low. But in this deck, it isn't worth the times where you needed it to be an untapped land. Since it rarely recurs anything significant.

Balan, Wandering Knight does a really bad impression of Kemba, Kha Regent which I am not interested in. Simply put, he doesn't deal commander damage, would come up too rarely, and takes away from the focus of the deck.

Enlightened Tutor would be 100% worthwhile putting into this deck. However, I only have a single copy, which is in another deck being 5C_Paradox.

Oloro_Magic on [Primer] - Ad Nauseam Combo [[Procellam Legit]]

RedPandaMaster:

What exactly is your budget, if you don't mind my asking? Ad Nauseam is already one of the more budget friendly decks one can play in modern; my list doesn't accurately represent this of course on account of the foils (and this is a deck where foiling is exponentially higher) but the actual stock list I have in the description without any foils is roughly $450-$500 last I checked.

If this is still too much the easiest replacement, although it must be stressed you will want to upgrade as soon as possible as these replacements are more placeholders than anything as combo decks like Ad Nauseam really need to be streamlined effectively, would be to cut the Gemstone Mine and replace them with most likely 1x Plains and 1x Dreadship Reef . This is by no means ideal but it is manageable if you really can't afford Gemstone Mine right now. Other than that there is not much unfortunately, instead of Darkness and Keranos, God of Storms you can just run the stock 3x Bontu's Last Reckoning but the card that is probably the biggest stretch for someone trying to pick up the deck, Leyline of Sanctity , is unfortunately really mandatory for the deck. There are just too many matchups in modern where you need Leyline to even hope to win. If that is the one card keeping you from playing Ad Nauseam then you can try for a time without it and pick some cards based on your meta from my comprehensive sideboard options list in the primer, but you will find some matchups will feel worse than they are and you will want to get your leylines as quick as possible. Essentially, playing Ad Nauseam without Leyline of Sanctity is like playing Infect without Noble Hierarch or Tron without Karn Liberated or Burn without Goblin Guide . In all cases its possible and has been done, but it is far from optimal.

Let me know if there are any specific cards you are looking for replacements for as they pose too much of a financial hardship, I am more than happy to make suggestions for what can be played instead; it can be hard to think of options without a specific card in mind to swap. I hope you build the deck!

Tiny_Sir in response to your earlier question, Maze of Ith is more useful, but Prairie Stream is good if you're running cards like Land Tax and Tithe because it is technically a Plains . Also, consider Mistveil Plains as a way to recycle your cards.

I would certainly play Adventurous Impulse over Open the Gates and Tower Defense over Opt . I would then move Suncleanser to the side-board and drop a Plains to bring in 3 Forest .
