This version is primarily for 1 on 1 with french rules.
Decks without blue (counterspell magic) have problems with my aggressive style. Kaalia wins a lot but unfortunately she has no potencial for competitive playing against commanders like Augustin, Zur atc. Maybe... Anyway I like (love) her and want improve as it is possible. Most problematic games I have against , for me the best competitive commander. Lots of removals - ,, - and of course counterspells - ,,... - plus bitches like , and . This deck locks me very quickly. I wish to be more defenses against counter magic. is in EDH environment nothing. Any ideas?

Winning strategy for my Kaalia's deck is land destruction. So Plan A is Kaalia IN then destroy all lands (,,). Its powerfull. Plan B - or . Kaalia is based mainly on all-in play.

My rating (1-5): 1-bad, 2-poor, 3-average, 4-good, 5-great

Situational aspect: x-bad, o-good, 1st-starting hand, 2nd-draw in turn five, 3rd-draw in late game (turn 10)

If your trouble is with blue, add more discard:

is unfortunately banned in french. Great card anyway.
seems good but almost every time it is two cards from seven.
is four drop (Kaalia) but effect is awesome. This card is must have for testing. THX for tip.

I was testing and for me it's better then for example. Everybody recommended me to not play Shimian so I don't know. Discarding cards is decent but viewing oponent's hand is best for my purpose.

Why the heck is Bitterblossom banned? That seems silly.

Most specters are quite insane in a 1v1 environment.




Dark Ritual to overpower the opponent, turn 2 persecute? Hypnotic Specter because it's one of the coolest cards ever made.

If money isn't an issue (and else you just have to save up :P), . Drop Kaalia, Drop Nether Void, done. Everything they do costs 3 more while you drop in big hitters for free. If money is an issue serves the same purpose against counterspells. It doesn't do much against sorcery speed stuff though.

can replace with no problems but I expect situations when oponent has 7 cards, I cast it for 3-5 and it will be countered. Card for card. Nothing else. What then if Augustin is in play. I think more dangerous are cards like , , atc. Thoughtseize costs unfortunately $50 so still only wishlist. is solid replacement.

Is "combo" good for EDH? It's not likely that suitable cards will bring together on starting hand. Draw it in late game... But in Kaalia's deck it can be interesting Ramp. 4 lands - - 6 mana - Kaalia+//. :P I feel synergy here.

is disappointment for me. It does almost nothing against blue and nothing against other colors. Yes when I cast Kaalia for the first time and oponent has only 4 mana and counters for two mana it has some effect. But it's much situational and what about spells like , ? is the same case. Four mana drop for this deck is not ideal.

I can't think of a deck that likes to operate under Nether Void. Key is to amass some board presence (Kaalia being the best) and then dropping the void. Even though the opponent can pay 4 to Swords to Plowshares it he -must- have it else he's gonna be buried in free demons/angels/dragons.
Worst case they do remove your Kaalia and you both have to operate under Nether Void, this means that both players will only be able to cast 1 spell or so per turn. So they cast something and pay for 3 extra, you go over the top with something more ugly (or Kaalia again). They won't be able to counter it.

It probably needs testing, but you asked for something to combat for example blue decks and there is nothing i would fear more than a Nether Void or Defense Grid if i have to rely on counterspells

It will mostly work against me that's my opinion. If I have Kaalia in game why I need this? Removals in EDH are generally cheap. If Kaalia will be targeted then 9 mana for next casting means big trouble for me. It doesn't solve problem with counterspells.
For lock/win game purpose I have cards like , maybe . more fits into this category but its effect isn't so fatal.

Maybe it's good card in some decks but in my Kaalia there is no room for this. Anyway thanks for your tip.

These days bothers me more quick starts of mono green decks. . Turn 3-5 . I'm thinking about cards like ,, and . Destroying is useless.

should be good in EDH. It hits combo cards like ,,,...
