Argentum Armor Discussion

it's best to make your deck have exactly 60 cards so I suggest removing some. -4 Darksteel Relic because it seems like a placeholder -8 Island because the best amount of lands is typically 20 -2 Chromatic Lantern -2 Prototype Portal -1 Argentum Armor

Cloud Key is like a medallion and The Immortal Sun is like a Caged Sun in this kind of deck. I see you're on a pretty high budget, so Ugin, the Spirit Dragon seems pretty good. I'm pretty sure Worn Powerstone is better than Palladium Myr in most situations. Aside from that, I think the equipment base needs a lot of improving. Helm of the Host won't work too well with Thraxos, as the copies will enter tapped either way (and it doesn't have synergy with a lot of other cards in your deck either). Strata Scythe seems quite negligible with 14 Wastes; you can run Blackblade Reforged instead. If you're gonna play something like Haunted Cloak, then I really see no reason for you to not play Sword of Vengeance. I'm surprised I don't see Darksteel Plate and Hammer of Nazahn on the list; I think you should run at least the plate. Whispersilk Cloak not only gives shroud, but unblockable - if you're running Trailblazer's Boots then I see no reason for you to not run the Cloak, and if you wanna go the unblockable route, you can run Prowler's Helm as well. Sigil of Valor really doesn't impress. Grafted Wargear and Hero's Blade don't seem like the best choices in your deck either. I'd suggest Basilisk Collar and Batterskull since you seem to have the budget; lifelink seems like one of the most important keywords in a voltron like this. Seeing as how your commander has trample, and is gonna go to combat a lot anyway, Rogue's Gloves, Mask of Memory and Infiltration Lens might be useful considerations. Dowsing Dagger Flip I suggest as a mana accelerator, cause it seems real easy to flip with Thraxos. Argentum Armor might be good, Nim Deathmantle goes super well with the big fat creatures theme you've got, and as a person who has played with Assault Suit I can say it's not only fun, but actually real good, especially in a deck like yours. That's all I can give you for now; happy brewing to you!

In terms of enchantment removal, Argentum Armor and Lux Cannon are both maybe at the top of your curve, but can remove enchantments. Ratchet Bomb might be an option, but with this deck it'll hit you too.

I would cut On Serra's Wings. As fun a card as it is, I'm not sure a four mana aura that doesn't recur itself somehow is going to be worth it in this deck.
Skysovereign, Consul Flagship is a sweet vehicle but it costs 5 and is probably not good enoug here.
I think Ghostfire Blade is the worst of your 1-mana equipment and could be cut.
I always try to put Masterwork of Ingenuity into my decks and it always ends up getting cut. Maybe you will have more luck, but its such an easy thing to cut when looking for things to cut because it doesn't do anything on its own. It's probably better here than in most decks though, with the 1 mana draw a card attached.
No Argentum Armor? I know it is very expensive for this deck's curve, but I still think it may be worth it. It's a very powerful equipment and you are a tad light on removal anyway.
I could go either way on the creatures that just get boosted for being equipped like Kor Duelist, Auriok Edgewright, etc. If your plan is to do Voltron with Sram, they really don't help you toward that goal in any way and could be easily cut. But they are not a bad back-up plan if you don't want to go all in on Sram voltron. Hmm. Similarly, is Mirran Crusader doing anything special here, or is he just a fun dude to equip?
Auriok Steelshaper doesn't do as much as he sounds like he might and I have cut him before. Sram isn't even a Soldier/Knight to boot. Same with Stone Haven Outfitter; remember that if you are doing Voltron and equipping Sram and he dies and you put him in the command zone, he didn't die so you won't draw a card.
So all that said, I would suggest the following:
OUT: Second Sunrise, Forebear's Blade, Sword of Vengeance, Key to the City, Skysovereign, Consul Flagship, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Ghostfire Blade, Grappling Hook, Inquisitor's Flail, Conqueror's Galleon Flip, On Serra's Wings, Auriok Steelshaper, Stone Haven Outfitter, Mirran Crusader
That should bring tyou from 109 -> 114 -> 100, if I did my math right. Oh, and you definately want Field of Ruin/Tectonic Edge/Ghost Quarter/Strip Mine with this kind of deck! Otherwise Maze of Iths just ruin your whole day. And Rogue's Passage.

Good start. Right now it's cheap, and money is nothing to the great and mighty Yargle.
Frogs can't normally hold swords, but Yargle is special and needs his homeboys Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of War and Peace, and Sword of Body and Mind
I know this is creatureless Yargle, but Crypt Ghast is too good to not include.
You have Tainted Strike but no Grafted Exoskeleton? Shame on you.
Hall of the Bandit Lord makes your frog fast.
You have a lot of swamps. Nothing says swamp like ogres. Oh, and Liliana of the Dark Realms.
Eldrazi Conscription. Ulamog step aside, we have a new titan here.
Hatred turns your pesky life total into more damage.
Necropolis Regent makes sure your frog can hold his foes in his belly.
Well, I'm bored of typing out card names. Therefore, this is where my tribute to Yargle ends.

Argentum Armor is IMO a better backup plan than Umezawa's Jitte. You can grab it on combo turn with one of the token-godo copies and destroy up to 2 permanents (get the Hammer with the first token, Armour with the second if you don't already have the Hammer). Helps deal with problem permanents that would otherwise wreck our plan, such as Propaganda effects or Glacial Chasm. Both cards are dead draws, and won't be cast if drawn unless the Helm of the Host gets exiled.Both require 2 turns worth of attacks to kill a player (Jitte needs a turn to get enough counters, and Argentum needs at least 3 connections (9+9+9)). While both can remove blockers, Jitte can't do it on the first attack, and has to spend otherwise offensive power to do so (burning counters), Argentum just nukes the blockers before blocker declaration.
Jitte has a couple advantages: is a good mana rock if Honor-Worn Shaku is out, and Argentum also has a higher equip cost, but both are zero if you have the Hammer out anyway.

Here's some ideas.
Replace the Butcher's Cleaver or Slayer's Plate with a Loxodon Warhammer. Same Cost, same equip, same damage bonus, but not having a restriction on the creature type and the additional trample are pretty nice.
I've always felt that Bonds of Faith is better in a 60 card deck than Commander. Too many threats and it suffers from the same problems that all Auras have.
The Citadel Siege feels out of place. I get the point of the two +1/+1 counters each combat, but if the board is empty, it becomes useless.
Please consider the following equipment (in no particular order):
Sword of Kaldra
