Add:


Lands:

Your average converted mana cost is low enough to go to 33 or 34 if you had mana dorks.


Creatures:

    Rashmi, Eternities Crafter: Rashmi is incremental advantage. You and both know that you are going to play cards on other people’s turns, so why not get free stuff for doing so? Wavebreak Hippocamp does the same thing if you want more of this effect.
    Spellseeker: Spellseeker grabs most of the instants and sorceries in your deck and more food for Prime Speaker
    Thing in the Ice  Flip: I noticed that you don’t have ways to protect yourself. If played earlier, you can flip Thing in the Ice and reset that battlefield. It was dumb in other formats, it’s dumb in EDH as well.

Instants and Sorceries

    Swan Song: Another good counter spell, but you have that covered pretty well. Once again, no one cares about one 2/2 bird….no one…
    Nature's Lore: This is only and grabs any forest onto the battlefield. Most of the time, you are going to tutor for Forest, so why not grab Breeding Pool instead?

Artifacts


Cuts:

    Raging Ravine: Ok, it has your colors. Are you ever going to activate this man-land? Also, it comes in tapped. Gross….
    Arch of Orazca: I think Arch is better in decks that lack access to card draw. You’re in . Drawing cards, most of the time, is not going to be a problem for you.
    Frilled Mystic and Mystic Snake: I’ve fallen for this trap too. I don’t want to pay for a counterspell on a weak 2/2 body. Compare these two cards to other mana spells like Cryptic Command. This cards counters, protects, and draws cards. I prefer utility creatures with more flexibility.

Hey, it's crazy that the precon is still worth about $100 when you can get it for $40 from Target or Walmart. I'm not sure of the budget you have to make upgrades, but here are some budget cards to consider adding. These cards are good with Kalamax no matter the main strategy you want to upgrade the precon with.

Wizards didn't include the the copy spell combo in the precon and for good reason as it would make this precon much better out of box than the others. Putting infinite +1/+1 counters on Kalamax at instant speed just by copying an opponents instant or sorcery or your own is busted. Have Ral on the battlefield before you do this to just win the game.

These cards can tap Kalamax to make mana letting you keep Kalamax back on defense and then tap it to trigger it on your opponents turn. Kalamax can tap itself by attacking, but sometimes you don't want to attack or can't attack so having others ways to tap it is helpful. Being able to tap Kalamax the turn you play it if you can't attack to then cast an instant on an opponents turn is nice. Being able to tap Kalamax at instant speed is also needed if you want to copy your own instant to put infinite counters on Kalamax/win with Ral.

In the precon Wolfrun is really the only way to give Kalamax repeatable evasion and Crop can tutor for it making it the better option, but having another way can be beneficial. Hadana's Climb  Flip more specifically Winged Temple of Orazca is a good repeatable effect since for three mana you can double Kalamax's power/toughness and give it flying. Climb will most likely flip the turn you play it when you target Kalamax.

Pull from Tomorrow is an instant mass draw spell. I'll stop now.

It really depends on what kind of deck you want to build. If you're trying to infinitely copy Fork or something, Survivors' Encampment, Holdout Settlement, and Springleaf Drum are basically free, repeatable self-tappers. A more aggressive deck that wants to attack with lightning-butt the turn he comes down might prefer the package of Expedite, Crimson Wisps, Samut's Sprint, and Accelerate.

Hey, I'm playing Kalamax on a budget and the cards I use to tap it if it hasn't attacked are Holdout Settlement, Survivors' Encampment, Springleaf Drum, Smuggler's Copter and Cryptolith Rite.

Making mana by tapping Kalamax is helpful to cast spells. Settlement and Encampment are nice because they're lands. They don't take up two other spots in the deck. Rite is better if you have a secondary token them because then tokens become mana dorks.

Copter and Drum can tap Kalamax if it has summoning sickness which is helpful to tap it the same turn you cast it. Copter can tap Kalamax at any time/any number of times with crew 1.

Spells with convoke can be used to tap Kalamax even if it has summoning sickness and use the mana it makes to cast the convoke spell. Chord of Calling is a powerful convoke spell with Kalamax. Sprout Swarm with convoke and buyback can be repeatable tokens and a repeatable instant to cast for Kalamax. With convoke Kalamax plus the tokens can pay for Sprout mana cost with buyback.

My first thoughts were Nexus of Fate and Springleaf Drum.
