Oops Profet93, I meant to respond to you sooner. Yes exactly! Having Hushbringer’s body to sac’ to Razaketh is very helpful to find additional fatties to drop with Kaalia, plus I can control when I want Hushbringer’s effect to end and have a chump blocker. I used to run the non-creature versions of certain stax pieces, but I found that I had less control over their effects than I wanted. Plus the redundancy from having more than 1 card with the same stax effect (for example, running both Hushbringer and Torpor Orb) clogged up my hand and hurt more than helped.

Thanks AngelKyleeLin!! Glad you like the deck! Kaalia is a lot of fun to pilot!

Personally I would trade out Accorder's Shield for Torpor Orb. I would trade out Pilgrim's Eye and Tiana, Ship's Caretaker for Hushwing Gryff and Tocatli Honor Guard (I know, Tiana is really cool, but she is only hitting equipment in your deck, you're not running as much equipment as a full equipment Voltron deck, and you'd have to drop her for 5 mana then find a way to protect her for her ability to work and you're only running 3 cards that offer protection with Greaves, Cloak, and your instant Chance for Glory).

You don't need to trade them all out, just some suggestions of what I'd personally do if I was putting ETB protection in.

And instead of Fragmentize I recommend Wear / Tear. Torpor Orb may also be better than Hushbringer unless there's a ton of creature dying stuff going on in your meta.

Thassa's Oracle + forbidden tutor is annoying to casual play because there's no common answer to it except for counterspells. I know Torpor Orb-like effects can stop it, and the incidental "shuffle back your graveyard with the trigger on the stack", but those are not effects you're playing in your deck if you're not built to take advantage of them. If your casual deck has to account for that and play enough answers, for both that combo, and for people who try to win with their boardstate of creatures, it takes up such an amount of deck slots that you have no room for your casual gameplan. That will leave you to run efficient combos as well, just to fit a wincon in your deck, and at that point, you're aspiring cEDH and leaving casual behind.

It's a mindset of wanting to win over wanting to play. When I play infinite combos in casual decks, they need 4-5 pieces to go off, all susceptible to different kinds of removal, very interruptible, and worth the effort when they come to fruition. I haven't seen people getting mad about my Arcbond/Pariah/Blazing Sunsteel/indestructible creature combo, only gotten compliments because it's a fun way to win the game and I did the work and earn the win. I have been yelled at, though, for including Thassa's Oracle/Demonic Consultation in a 5c deck that already had a singleton mana base just in case the game goes long.

I think the line is defined by opportunity to interact, and effort spent to win.

I have never had issues with the x4 FoR since they mana fix as long as you get 3 total lands to activate it. Also I find being able to force my opponent extremely important in order to free cast Archive Trap. I used to run Ashiok, Dream Render in the sideboard which complimented very well too, obviously she isnt in the SB at the moment but it's a card thats always on my mind.

I did take your advice on removing x1 Torpor Orb for a Crypt Incursion. I believe Dress Down is better than TO in this current meta as it allows you to make your opponent waste their ETBs rather than TO staying on the board, hoping they dont remove it.

DeltaMoth Makes perfect sense. If you end up wanting additional sideboard hate for the elementals, I can highly suggest Torpor Orb

Wabbajacke a typical Lanturn control list would look something like this:

So, if you're wanting to keep to just blue and black, and include Circu, Dimir Lobotomist, then I would suggest a list that looks something like this (you'll note the deck can be a lot more tool-boxy than the above because Whir of Invention lets us search for whatever we want, so for example we only need 2 bridges):
