Vilis, Broker of Blood Discussion

@ 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

cfost827 To make the deck any more competitive, the easiest thing to do is to include more cheap mana sources, add more disruption, and cut the higher mana cards. I'd consider some more competitive cards like Mana Vault , Mox Diamond , Dark Confidant , Imperial Seal , Ad Nauseam , Opposition Agent etc. The cards you should look at cutting are the slower, high cost ones like Requiem Angel , Solemn Simulacrum , Archon of Justice , etc. This doesn't include Razaketh, the Foulblooded or Vilis, Broker of Blood though since they practically win the game upon entering. Tweaking the deck to give it 5% more power level can be difficult since such a small change is subtle. You're going to have to add and cut cards to feel it out and probably play a ton of games to test.

In terms of what to cut for more fodder, you could cut Archon of Justice and Sifter of Skulls for Carrier Thrall and Imperious Oligarch , or whatever 2 drops you want. Archon and Sifter are a lot slower than cheap fodder, so if you want more, you can cut cards like them. If you want more than 2 new pieces of fodder, you could keep cutting slower 4-6 drops like Solemn Simulacrum , but it'd impact your mana base or other aspects of the deck.

DubWubby This is a cool combo. You could include it, but you're right in that it's fragile and inconsistent. It's really strong in ideal scenarios like with Buried Alive or any time you draw Vizier of Remedies with any persist creature. However, it'd be hard to include for a few reasons. If you draw persist creatures and don't have vizier, they're weak sac fodder on their own, so you'd want to include few of them. However, if you draw vizier without persist creatures, then she's almost useless, so you want to include more of them. Finding the balance of how many persist creatures you need as well as what to cut is the challenge. Saying that, Putrid Goblin is almost as efficient as other 2 drop fodder cards, and both him and vizier have 1 toughness for Skullclamp , so they aren't irredeemable on their own.

Howdy! Unfortunately Deathrite Shaman has the color identity of both black and green, so you can't "legally" play that card! I'd suggest replacing it with something like Vilis, Broker of Blood as that card is BONKERS when your commander is on the field, just draw ALL the cards!

Also another card to look at could be Mind Twist . Making an opponent discard all their cards in hand can be really backbreaking!

My best advice is to get your hands on Vilis, Broker of Blood , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , and a Phyrexian Arena . More rocks for mana acceleration and lowering the mana curve of your deck by focusing on things that give you as much bang for your buck as possible would also be highly advised. I see you're not running Thundermaw Hellkite , for example. I'd recommend that at least.

Running more creatures in general might be just what you need... especially with the Strionic Resonator being a thing. I don't run that or any extra combat cards, but I still run 33 in the 99. Only three of them are not ADD. One of those three is Kaalia, Zenith Seeker . She's a one-and-done, but combos well with Phyrexian Reclamation or Reya Dawnbringer and a sac outlet. Speaking of sac outlets, another card you might be interested in is Carnage Altar . Someone's trying to exile your Avacyn? Sac her and draw a card in response, so you can bring her back later. Better than the alternative, at least.

Another thing about running sac outlets is that Angel of Serenity works quite well with them. The funny thing about how her effect is worded is that if she's removed in any way while her exile trigger is on the stack, her second trigger resolves while there are still no creatures to return, causing it to fizzle and the targets to be exiled for good. Fun times.

vito would be a great commander, if you go with him Vilis, Broker of Blood is a good biggy, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a great mono black for any life gain deck

CyanideSuicide017 Nice list! I would definitely put in Vilis, Broker of Blood , this card is great draw and is simply a beast.

Also, surprising you don't have Bolas's Citadel included. This card could be run in almost any deck with Black in their commanders colors. Every time I get Bolas on the field, I usually end up winning the game. I would highly suggest adding in.

Other than, looks good! I will defer to Masterful for his expertise though :)
