I actually have some ideas for this, having lost to a Kaalia deck many a time!

-Anger is fantastic. It provides another haste outlet.
-Glory is also nice, and I dont see why not.
-Faithless Looting is underrated, you get to filter your hand while throwing fun things(Unburial Rites/Reanimator targets, Anger, Glory) into the yard where they can be more helpful. And it has flashback if its late game and you have to find an answer somewhere.
-Wheel of Fate/Reforge the Soul also help with keeping your hand stocked, your yard filled with targets, and occasionally throwing Anger to the grave and screwing with the blue player who has 20 cards in hand and cant counter it for some reason I don't know.

And finally I have an actual substitution for you.

Drop - Underworld Connections for Phyrexian Arena

I actually had Phyrexian Arena in the deck and just recently got a copy of Underworld Connections. I wanted to test it out since it gives me more flexibility with the same effect. Being an activated ability, I can choose to play it whenever I want which would help with the miracle cards in the deck and other instants like Chaos Warp and Oblation. Also, I could choose not to use it when not needed in case I'm low on life unlike Arena. I've had games where I ended up at like 1 or 2 life and was killed by Arena. Now I know this is a rare occurrence, especially with how much damage this deck can deal out and how fast it can do it, but it has happened. I also just like to have more control over it. The biggest selling point for me was the ability to have another card draw effect whenever I want like Sensei's Divining Top, but without having to "lose" Top to library each time. Top and Underworld Connections can really work well together too.

Just fyi, I was able to get a foil Kokusho, The Evening Star (FTV: Dragons) recently (I'm so stocked to finally play it since it became unbanned). I took Baneslayer Angel out of the deck for it. It was a hard decision, but the angel was the only card I could see cutting without messing up the way I play it (combos, strategy, etc). To me, the pro Demon/Dragon thing wasn't needed. The flying, first strike, lifelink is good, but with True Conviction in the deck and Academy Rector/Ashnod's Altar to cheat it in, I can do without the Angel for now.

My question, though, is since Recurring Nightmare is banned in EDH, is there anyway I can enhance (read: abuse 8) ) Kokusho beyond what I already can (Nim Deathmantle/Ashnod's Altar combo)

Reconnaissance is number 1. :wink:

Seriously it is one of the cards you can have for Kaalia. You can look at gather comments to see how it works. If people question the card refer them to the official FAQ for the set on the magic website.
