Ah, I must've overlooked the elemental. I think Asceticism is truly magnificent. You might want to consider a permanent that gives indestructible, too, like Soul of New Phyrexia, Avacyn, Angel of Hope. It will help evade the countless boardwipes in commander.

Makes sense. I have a lot of respect for EDH players who are mindful of an appropriate power level for their playgroup. I run an Avacyn, Angel of Hope deck but I don't use mass land destruction or crap like Serra Ascendant, Iona, Shield of Emeria, or Felidar Sovereign as I think they are abused in the format.

Well it won't destroy Avacyn, Angel of Hope or anything it protects. Or anything that has Hexproof.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope got moved to the aquireboard, I had so many cards to shave down I decide to cut all the cards that were either already in another deck (I have an Avacyn + Worldslayer deck) or I dont own and are above $10, I figured I can always slot in the expensive ones later if I really have fun with the deck.

Okay! Here's what I think.

Now that you're down to 27 artifacts instead of a gazillion, Golem-Skin Gauntlets is one of your weaker cards. Realistically, you can probably expect to maybe get +2/0, +3/0 in a game with that card, best-case scenario.

Next on my list is Nim Deathmantle. I am a huge zombie deck lover (check out my Mallwalkers deck, which is my pride and joy), but I'm not a huge fan of the deathmante because of the 4 mana you've got to pay to activate its ability. Even in a black ramp deck I find that I either don't have the mana or what I do have the mana for is way better than activating deathmantle.

Lastly, I think you're okay shaving off a land! Your average CMC here is down to 3.34, and you have enough mana rocks and draw that you should be fine. In my Avacyn deck I run 37, and she's a much higher cost commander, but she's backed up by even more mana rocks than you have here.

And speaking of Avacyn, Angel of Hope where did she go? She is sooo much better than Darksteel Forge if you aren't also running Mycosynth Lattice. In my Avacyn deck I'm running Avacyn with Mycosynth Lattice, Leonin Abunas and Indomitable Archangel, but I think your best move here is to swap the forge for Avacyn. Seriously. Either that or add Mycosynth Lattice, but an 8/8 flyer with vigilance that gives all of your permanents indestructible is way better than an artifact that costs more and only makes your artifacts indestructible, and otherwise sits there like a rock on the board.
