zAzen7977 on Building the (Bad) Kaalia

4 weeks ago

Hey I_Want_To_PlayAllTheDecks, I picked up the Kaalia precon several years ago and have been tinkering with it ever since to make it as competitive as possible. First I went full-aggro and land destruction. When I realized how easy it was to neutralize my deck if Kaalia was killed, I tried a reanimation-heavy approach. Then I realized my strategy was easily shattered by graveyard hate like Rest in Peace , which happens to be rampant in my play group. Sure I can remove RiP once or maybe twice, but its imposible to deal with hate from multiple players at once.

After countless iterations and strategies, I figured out that a hybrid aggro/stax approach is the way to go. This may sound counter-intuitive at first, but the only way for Kaalia to catch up to much faster competitive decks is to try to slow down the other decks. I cut all reanimation cards, which eliminates the weakness of depending on my graveyard for big creatures. Don’t get me wrong, Worldgorger Dragon infinite combos work and reanimation is a valid strategy, but other combo decks are quicker, especially decks running blue and/or green. If Kaalia gets neutralized, I have stax pieces, ramp artifacts, and tutors to fall back on to get me back into the game. Also I believe other creature-cheat cards like Sneak Attack are redundant and take up space that could be better utilized for more stax or ramp cards.

Please feel free to check out my deck if you are interested!

I_Want_To_PlayAllTheDecks on Building the (Bad) Kaalia

4 weeks ago

I rarely find commanders that after I still want to build a couple days after first thinking about them. Kaalia, Zenith Seeker is one of them. The only problem is, I don't know how to build her. I know I could go more Cedh by going turbo Worldgorger Dragon + Animate dead. I could go big beater ramp with the demons/dragons/angels she finds. I could try and cheat beaters in with reanimation or Sneak Attack effects. I could try and go with tons of blink effects and try and use Worldgorger Dragon for value. My current thoughts are Blink/Reanimation, both are powerful tools to utilize, and in most cases if you blink something that was cheated into play for a single turn, you get to keep it. The only problem with this idea is I'm not sure how consistent it would be. Any ideas or recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks

Gleeock, here is my creature list. That's all there is. Each either shuffle back into the library from the graveyard and synergize with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Through the Breach , or they are indestructible and synerz with Shifting Shadow

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker

Nesting Dragon

Not as good as expected, but more eggs and dragons are not bad, especially when you can sac them due to Maskwood Nexus .

Xenagos, God of Revels

  • Obviously good with any creature
  • Synergizes as a creature with Shifting Shadow , otherwise hard to remove

Avacyn, Angel of Hope

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth

  • Unfortunately, his casting ability is basically useless in this deck
  • Despite being crazy by itself, Annihilator 4 is great with It That Betrays
  • Shuffles graveyard back in, so I'll get back the non-shuffle creatures, most of all Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre

Obvious reasons.

Worldspine Wurm

I love this card.

  • Great with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Through the Breach . That's 30 power with trample for when Sneak Attack and Worldspine Wurm are out
  • Shuffles back in
  • Blightsteel Colossus

    Obviously the best and strongest creature in this deck. Loves Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and I am running Anointed Procession .

    It That Betrays

    It has happened that "It" and its over rings Kozilek and Ulamog have come into play at the same time with Selvala's Stampede . That's 33 power (easily chump blocked though) and 10 permanents sacrificed that I then returned to the battlefield under my control. Primal Rage helps.

    StopShot!!! Guardian Project + Norin the Wary - that's the most beautiful thing I have seen in my life (;_;)

    Search for Glory and Time of Need - that's actually really helpful when I have Sneak Attack but nothing to fire.

    Scroll Rack + Land Tax - I have both, I shall try

    It looks fun! I'm also going to be building an Obeka deck too and yours looks awesome! I opened a Sneak Attack a while back so I am definitely adding that to mine.

    It’s great to know we’re on the same page XinZhao! Excellent points.

    I have considered Sneak Attack in the past, but it’s pretty much a dead card unless Kaalia is neutralized, and most of the time I can keep Kaalia in play. Plus I have enough ramp to hard-cast most creatures. But I haven’t played with Sneak Attack before, so I can’t say for sure. As far as what to cut for it, I guess I’d cut Ravages of War as you suggest.

    The reason why I run both Armageddon and Ravages of War is because I’d really like to draw into at least one of them organically, and running two copies makes that more likely. I don’t want to waste a tutor on Armageddon/War if I don’t need to, since land destruction is secondary to the deck’s strategy. Plus there’s a good chance my first copy will be countered. But ultimately it comes down to personal preference and your meta if you want to run one or both cards. Ravages is very expensive nowadays so that’s another issue to consider.

    The Creature Cheat hub exists right now, which generally covers Polymorph , Sneak Attack , Show and Tell , Quicksilver Amulet , and related effects. Does this one work for you?
