    Finally got the money to buy the pre-con deck for Kaalia of the Vast and I got Sephara and New Kaalia coming in. I can't wait to become public enemy #1 at the table Smile


    You bought the stock Heavenly Inferno?! I always thought that was a bit too much of a markup for what the deck contained. Wish I'd have known, I'd point you towards the starter "white border" Kaalia. At least for the investment, you'd get a stronger, more cohesive deck (and most of the cost comes from the tutour suite/abu duals. without those, the whole list is practically pennies). Anyway, welcome aboard, and feel free to follow my continued dedication to the deck over on @mtgnexus!


    Honestly, the thought of having something playable and ready for future upgrades is nice to know Smile

    I do dislike the lack of low cost plays in the deck (something I want to fix) I want to play later today to get a better feel for it.

    Name: Sephara, Sky's Blade

    New card in M20 Announced. It's an Angel 7 drop with 3 white mana. It gives indestructible too all other flying creatures. The card itself also has flying and lifelink and yet another effect. Pay 1 white and tap 4 creatures to play a spell instead of paying that spells manacost.

    Link above to check it out.

    Welcome to all our new posters! Continental breakfast is served from 7-9, and the bathroom is down the hall, third door on the left. We hope you enjoy your stay with the most definitive Kaalia primer on the net!

    ~ Kaalia's Personal Liaison

    Ahem.
    I just don't see the new Kaalia fitting here, I think what she wants to do and what we're actually doing is too far apart when we could similarly replicate her effect in this deck with painful truths and ancient craving. However FWIW, I'm feeling her and I'm surely going to be writing a primer and covering her in depth too because her synergies are real good (scroll rack, making us into a sort of miracle deck), and caring a bit more about etb than on-damage triggers and not needing to worry about Flameblast Syndrome.

    Obviously that's still some time away, so all I can really say to you is stay tuned.


    "Hmm. Is it free continental breakfast?" :p

    But the new Kaalia's power level is pretty low compared to our current Kaalia.
    Imo the gap is quite big.

    Do you think its worth slotting new kaalia into our 99 as a way to find our ADDs? theoretically we should always put 1 into hand.
    And in our colors, card selection is not often found


    Kinda thinking about it but prob not. After last post I got thinking and I wondered if you could get both on hand the field quicky if that would mean faster monster draw and it dosen't. They simply can't play off each other even though there the same card doing something very similar. You also run into a not having enough mana issue.

    I do think the gap is large, but I think you can build around it and close the gap with a lot of virtual CA (my deck building niche, heh). As to why I wouldn't play her in this deck, its because we're looking for a specific card more often than not which is why we have so many Universal tutours. Just fishing for random value drops isn't so in-line with what we're doing here.


    What is CA?

    Also while I do think there really different i'm planning on getting both and maybe a pre-order box for Core20 for Kaalia and the new Chandra's. But ehh. I doubt i'll get all I want like always :p

    Found this thread on google and decided to join. I was going to ask the author if they were alive and looking at the new Kaalia. Both of which have been thankfully answered when I saw this super long thread of 171 pages. Beutiful.

    I'm new to magic and got into it because of MTG: Arena and found Kaalia when I got whooped in a Commander game by a more experienced player, bitching to a friend in my D&D group, and then being told 'play this if you want people to hate you'. I only wanted hate from that one guy but not a whole group and then decided: I suck anyways so even if I pick this card it'll still be even Smile

    And so after so much rummaging I found the (Holy/Unholy?) place for Kaalia advice. Thank you to 3drinks and everyone who's participated and allowed for a new player to find a place in the MTG Community.

    ----------

    All things said I like the new Kaalia but I feel that in standard we'll need Green Mana to ramp up and in commander I just can't see popping up my card count without getting the mana in place to actually cast things. Unless there's some cards in the plast that have a 'if you reveal a card you can play it' or something I don't think Kaalia Zenith Seeker will all too good.

    That said what about picking up both and putting them in the same deck? OG Kaalia as Commander to play cards with New Kaalia to pick up cars. At 7 mana it's hella expensive but the synerguy is there.

    P.S I don't know how to use the color thing on the forum. Tried putting green and it game a ton of other symbols in the brackets.
