Creature — Human Soldier
Equip costs you pay cost (1) less.
As long as Auriok Steelshaper is equipped, Soldier and Knight creatures you control get +1/+1.

Hi! First of all cool deck +1 I also love to play with equipments so allow me to give some advise on the matter.
You seem to have a solid game-plan already and I don't know if you are willing to pay a little more for better alternatives but I would play:
- Rogue's Passage over Prowler's Helm
- Stoneforge Mystic over Relic Seeker
- Buried Ruin over Salvage Scout
- Stonehewer Giant over Taj-Nar Swordsmith
- Nim Deathmantle over Scythe of the Wretched
- Darksteel Plate over Surestrike Trident
- Return to Dust over Wear / Tear
- Leonin Shikari over Auriok Steelshaper
- Sigarda's Aid over Mycosynth Wellspring
- Tithe over Wild-Field Scarecrow
I would also try to play around 35 lands, 31 is in my opinion not enough.
Those are some of my suggestions. I to play an equipment oriented deck, feel free to take a look for inspiration Odric's Holy War

Since you want to go for an equipment type strategy here are most of the really good equipments/equip matters cards you could use: Godsend Stoneforge Mystic Kemba, Kha Regent Leonin Shikari Auriok Steelshaper Moonsilver Spear Umezawa's Jitte and finally the Kaldra cycle of equipments Helm of Kaldra Sword of Kaldra Shield of Kaldra

Another consideration (a bit late, mind), but Sram, Senior Edificer? He triggers on 17 cards in your deck right now, and that number can go up if you add more equipment and auras. I'd run him over Auriok Steelshaper any day.

903.4 - The Commander variant uses color identity to determine what cards can be in a deck with a certain commander. The color identity of a card is the color or colors of any mana symbols in that cards mana cost or rules text, plus any colors defined by its characteristic-defining abilities or color indicator.
903.4c - The back face of a double-faced card is included when determining a cards color identity.
Auriok Steelshaper is too low-impact. Shaving off isn't as impressive as Puresteel Paladin's metalcraft ability providing free equips or the handful of other cards that completely circumvent costs. It's anthem is also weak. +1/+1 to all Soldiers and Knights isn't effective when I only have so many creatures out at a given time, and there are only 4 Soldier and Knights total in the deck.
I'm currently exploring additional ramp options, but I feel like I don't need too much more. This deck already has six ramp cards alongside four cards that assist in land drops. I can only add so much ramp and land tutor effects before it starts to eat up space for other needed cards.

What about Auriok Steelshaper as an addition to your ramp? If you have a few equipments on the board, it could act like a very good mana dork. I feel that your deck needs more ramp options.
The anthem is just a bonus.

In that case, more thoughts:
Strength in Numbers
Riding the Dilu Horse
Hope Against Hope
Heron's Grace Champion
Riders of Gavony
Ajani, Caller of the Pride
Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder
Quest for Pure Flame
Temur Battle Rage
I think those will do quite nicely. @Boza, maybe you should consider reposting to the forums to get more interest.
