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.

I see you are running just one black card and 7 swamps... I think you can make some cuts on Ruthless Ripper and turn the deck to mono-white. Or maybe you can curve it to red for more options for equip-based decks.
Steelshaper Apprentice, Auriok Steelshaper, Auriok Edgewright for synergy with equips. Dragon Throne of Tarkir for your weeniesMask of Memory and Mentor of the Meek give a try on that to keep the fuel goingStoneforge Masterwork for human theme and Strata Scythe if you consider going mono-white

Hello sad_2980 , Thank you for the suggestion, but I feel Ornithopter and Auriok Steelshaper don't have the nearly the same synergy as Armament Master and Kitesail Apprentice. Thank You though for the advise.
