Vilis, Broker of Blood Discussion

Looks like pretty sweet deck!
Some cards I think that could help here aswell:
Vilis, Broker of Blood - a bit mana expensive, but should be totally worth the card draw from life loss.
Doom Whisperer - another big demon just for that could help to filter your library and drain your life at the same time at instant speed.
Dream Devourer - Im still trying to play around this little guy, but so far its not bad to protect some combo pieces to cast them later.
Emergence Zone - In my opinion this is pretty sweet utility land just to give your spels Flash until end of turn, possibly sneaking out Repay in Kind, etc (?).
Marshland Bloodcaster - probably a bit slow without Haste, but should work just well.

Awesome, thanks!

Lastly, have you ever tried running Kokusho, the Evening Star or Yosei, the Morning Star ? I feel like they are even better than Vilis, Broker of Blood in this deck (I know you just cut him already). With Teysa on the field and getting their death trigger, it makes these two quite powerful. Recurring them would also be great great. I'm thinking of testing adding in one of them. Which of the two would you add if you wanted to/could ?

Additionally, what are your thoughts on Spawning Pit as a sac outlet? I feel like it could actually do pretty well in this deck, maybe in place of Carrion Feeder ? Would like to hear your thoughts on this card as it could just make us more tokens.

Daedalus, ah the Force of Will just happened to be a card I hadn’t sold. I don’t know how I forgot to add Necropotence , and I’m most sure that I have it laying around somewhere! Greed seems a interesting card to play, and quite abusive in a lifegain deck such as this. Concerning Vilis, Broker of Blood , he seems like a great card to play if it wasn’t such a high CMC. My current issue is getting out cards early, and I feel as if Vilis would really just hinder the deck and be a dud card. Thanks for the fast response!

lifemtg: Fair enough! I noticed that you included Force of Will , so I assumed you had a bit of money to throw at it.

Depending on how powerful you want to go, some good draw options could be Greed , Necropotence (though that crosses into the price range of Mana Drain), or perhaps Vilis, Broker of Blood (if you can ramp up to him).

Hey Masterful! Hope all is well and your play testing is continuing to be successful.

Just had a few thoughts on other cards to add/cut. Have you ever tried running Kokusho, the Evening Star or Yosei, the Morning Star ? I feel like they are even better than Vilis, Broker of Blood in this deck (I know you just cut him already). With Teysa on the field and getting their death trigger, it makes these two quite powerful. Recurring them would also be great great. I'm thinking of testing adding in one of them.

@ BotaNickill

You have a lotta situational spot removal. Not sure what your meta's like, but I'd take out Go for the Throat and Doom Blade at least... Possibly Dismember . It largely depends on what your meta's like, but four or five spot removers and three-to-five sweepers tends to be enough... particularly when you have some good card draw. Unfortunately, Kaalia's best card draw comes in the form of demons. Most notably Vilis, Broker of Blood .

In terms of creatures to take out, Firja, Judge of Valor looks like your most expendable one to me, but it's hard to whether or not that's just my personal bias talking, lol. Never much liked her myself.

Here's my Kaalia deck, in case it gives you ideas: Hardcore Heavenly Inferno
