Assault Suit

Artifact — Equipment

Equipped creature gets +2/+2, has haste, can't attack you or a planeswalker you control, and can't be sacrificed.

At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, you may have that player gain control of equipped creature until end of turn. If you do, untap it.

To those asking, my goal is to make Lunar Force a creature, then equipping Assault Suit to it so I can counter any spell my opponents try to cast and not have to sacrifice it. As far as I could find, that’s the only way to make me not have to sacrifice it for each spell.

I do not like the equipment subtheme you have going here. Most of the time, you will not be able to equip your commander, and your other creatures are more for utility than combat. I would cut all these cards, except Assault Suit, as that gives you an easy, repeatable way to gift someone else your commander.

I also take some issue with this statement:

“When vampiric link is on xantcha, anytime she deals combat damage I gain life.”

While it is technically correct, it is far more limited than it needs to be. I presume you know, but, for the sake of clarity, I want to make clear that Vampiric Link works for all damage, not just comabt damage.

laughingpreist - DogKnight156 is correct. I think the Gatherer ruling sums it up nicely, but if you’re curious why it works that way:

The relevant text is “gains control” as this indicates it is a control-changing effect. Per Rule 800.4a, control-changing effects end before cards owned by others that are controlled via non-control-changing means (such as Bribery) are exiled.

You could seriously consider running Assault Suit. It makes it so the equipped creature can't be sacrificed, even by your own effects.

Other utility cards you could consider Trash for Treasure, Scrap Mastery, and Blasphemous Act.

Other fatties you should think about Ancient Stone Idol, Metalwork Colossus, Inferno Titan, Steel Hellkite, and Scuttling Doom Engine.

Side note, Sundering Titan is banned in Commander. It is considered far too oppressive to multicolored decks.

You cannot, as State-based actions do not use the stack, and thus can't be responded to. (Rule 704.1).

Also, you do not sacrifice a creature due to the Legend Rule--you choose one of that Legend and the rest go to the graveyard. The result is similar--you're picking permanents to send to your graveyard, but there's very different implications. The Legend Rule, for example, won't trigger Bloodbriar, and you can't use Assault Suit to circumvent the Legend Rule (Rule 704.5j).

Rule 704.1: State-based actions are game actions that happen automatically whenever certain conditions (listed below) are met. State-based actions don’t use the stack.

Rule 704.5j If a player controls two or more legendary permanents with the same name, that player chooses one of them, and the rest are put into their owners’ graveyards. This is called the “legend rule.”

Something else occurred to me..

If a Necrotic Plague were to be put on my Commander with Assault Suit equipped, then it would just sit there as a deterrent against killing it without the risk of unleashing... the Necrotic Plague!!! lol

Constant Mists and Moment's Peace are great effects for protecting you from attack. Arachnogenesis is an all star. Cards like Dread, Vigor, and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs give a pseudo-fog effect because nobody wants to attack into them.

Now for some Voltron cards. I would suggest Assault Suit, Berserkers' Onslaught, and Rage Reflection.

Triumph of the Hordes will give you a win out of nowhere. Copperhorn Scout can keep all of your creatures untapped.

Argentum Armor and Assault Suit can be fun as you turn Aurelia into a pinball. Assemble the Legion and Cathars' Crusade to get more troops on the ground that are essentially expendable. Since you are planning for mostly artifacts, Pia's Revolution, Ghirapur AEther Grid, Fireweaver, Darksteel Forge, and Blinkmoth Urn might be worth looking in to.
