Cool take on the quite common equipment deck. Here's some you might consider adding:

NensouHiebara on Balan, Equipment Voltron

Sun Titan already fills the same role Auriok Survivors would. I want to keep the amount of 6+cmc cards in the deck as low as possible.


Swiftfoot Boots, Champion's Helm, or Hammer of Nazahn. Keeping removal off of Balan is important.

With slower/land light opening hands, I'll likely burn the first tutor on Sword of the Animist.


This deck doesn't want Auras. They don't give Balan double strike and they don't play well with protection.

I'd take out some of the more useless creatures like Nyx-Fleece Ram, Vanguard of Brimaz(you have nothing to target it with) and put in things like Stonehewer Giant or Steelshaper Apprentice to find equipment. Sun Titan, and Auriok Survivors to get things back when they get destroyed. I'd cut some enchantments and put in more equiment. I enjoy getting Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra and Helm of Kaldra together.

Take a look at my list:

Funkydiscogod on Blinking Medallion

That card + Vulshok Battlemaster = infinite ETB triggers

That card + Thousand-Year Elixir Mass Hysteria In the Web of War Lightning Greaves + Burning-Tree Emissary Priest of Urabrask Priest of Gix Kazuul's Toll Collector Kor Outfitter Puresteel Paladin(with metalcraft) Auriok Survivors(if you have a sacrifice outlet) = infinite ETB triggers, too

Basically, it's be a EDH combo machine.

Okay, after searching for an hour, I think I've finally figured a mono-white Angel of Glory's Rise infinite combo that kills all opponents:

Needed pieces on field: none.
Needed pieces in graveyard: Angel of Glory's Rise, Banisher Priest, Auriok Survivors, Demonmail Hauberk, Mortarpod, and Piston Sledge. (There may be another combo involving using Mirror Entity X=0 to sacrifice all your creatures, but the equipment wincon made the above situation more reachable.)Needed commander: New Bruna.

Another option would be to use infinite mana via an Auriok Salvagers combo:

Needed cards on field: none.
Needed pieces in graveyard: Auriok Salvagers, Lotus Bloom, Magma Mine/Scroll of Avacyn/Sunbeam Spellbomb.
Needed commander: New Bruna.

I guess both could go in the deck for resilience?

DaringApprentice on Vampire: The Dark Ages

Nice deck! Look forward to seeing how this evolves.

Based on your description, if you plan to wait until you have some nice Equipment out before you cast and attack with Aurelia, I might recommend more cards that work nicely with Equipment.

Cards that help you tutor Equipment out from library or graveyard: Steelshaper's Gift, Quest for the Holy Relic, Steelshaper Apprentice, Godo, Bandit Warlord (lets Aurelia attack up to 3 times per turn if you make Aurelia and Godo attack at different first times each turn), Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Nahiri, the Lithomancer, and Auriok Survivors.

Cards that more easily let you attach Equipment: Puresteel Paladin, Leonin Shikari, Auriok Steelshaper, Brass Squire, and Auriok Windwalker.

Cards that let you steal (even if temporarily) Equipment from other players: Ogre Geargrabber and Magnetic Theft.

Cards that give benefits for having equipped creatures: Stone Haven Outfitter and Weapons Trainer.

Note that Open the Armory has a higher mana cost than Steelshaper's Gift, but it does allow you to tutor out Aura cards. The only problem with including this is that I don't see any Aura cards in this deck so far. However, if you're keeping it in the deck instead of Steelshaper's Gift for budget reasons, that makes sense, too, as Steelshaper's Gift is 10 times as expensive as Open the Armory.
