Edh Decks : Kaalia of the Vast
Kaalia is one of the most strange type of effects in EDH.It has a great possibility of breaking through the gates with great creatures that will take down the game.
I always liked Kaalia and wanted to have a good list both for multilayer and 1v1. This is because we sometimes keep both kind of tourneys in the same day. It is challenging and fun.
About the deck.
For single player you want to fast kill your opponents. This means that you have to get Kaalia out quickly and bash with it. You need some creatures in starting hand, but not to many as the hand become clogged.
For multiplayer, you need resiliency, and that’s why this deck is based on reanimating stuff over and over.
I believe that 36 lands and some artifact ramp will do ok. The lands are spread out the entire colors of mana and will fix them ok.
Kaalia’s power stands in her attack phase. This means that you need to attack with her as soon as possible. In the first it was paired with Anger and Entomb. But having a mountain proved to be difficult. Now i am using a triad of artifacts that makes her hasty : Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot boots and Ring of Valkas. You’d like one of these early on, and also another big creature in hand. These artifact also protects kaalia from targeted removal, and in addition, the Darksteel plate will protect her of the mass removal. Also good with your Obliterate.
Some tutoring is in the form of Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Shred Memory, Enlightened tutor and Tithe. Also Rune-scarred Demon provides same as Demonic Tutor. Liliana Vess provides a different card advantage, and it’s here becasue of versatility.
Recurring creatures, at instant speed (with Kaalia’s attack).
Needed to stop creatures with activation abilities that might stop your onslaught.
She is here because of the some EBT-abilities and the options to save Kaalia from targeting. Sme good interactions are with Rune-scarred Demon, Thundermaw Hellkite to attack undisturbed, Sun Titan
Just a good 5/5 Lifelink beater. Very good creature for its cost.
Phyrexian Arean on a stick.
Tapping opponents’ creatures and attacking undisturbed
He draws at least 1 card (replaces himself) and he is the appropriate creature type
He is a powerhouse. Getting him into attack using Kaalia will not trigger his first ability. He can be devastating with Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion
Recurring Animate Dead (and the functionals) is fun.
Vindicate on a stick
All your creatures have firebreathing (but activated only once for all).
Double damage, half to receive, plus an body of 5 that attacks for 10 ?
Demonic Tutor on a stick.
Recurring threats. She is here just because of its sheer power.
Fast. Deadly. Almost unblockable. Gorgeous.
Who cannot love this goth chick ? Ok. Indestructibility for all my perms ? Comboes well with obliterate.
Good body, good EBT ability.
This is here for multiplayer purpose. It is the case when the game goes long and you need that specific advantage. This will give you that.
Shutting down 1 color against a multiplayer game is good. Some opponents cannot get rid of her. Monocolor deck are almost destroyed by this.
Same as Sheoldred, but she trades the sac effect for the good creature type.
Other utility cards:
The deck has also other utility cards like removal (terminate, swords to plowshares, etc), mass removal (wrath of god, damnation…), and reanimators : necromancy, dance of the dead, animate dead. These have been chosen because their interaction with sun titan and will provide resiliency. Also in the reanimating plan Volrath’s Stronghold Is a gold mine. Also Sword of Light and Shadow provides recursive threats.
