Monomanamaniac on Kemba's glorious army

K1ngMars I appreciate the feedback definitely, you've given me a lot to consider. I'd love to run a lot of your suggestions, but Anointed Procession Balan, Wandering Knight (who'd probably be my commander) and Hammer of Nazahn are out of budget. I have most of the other suggestions available. So I am considering a lot of your cuts, great suggestions. I like backup plans, and have a cat sub theme, so there's some oddball inclusions. I agree I could focus on voltron a bit more, and that my token army needs to be coming from my commander. I love Bastion Protector and will acquire it immediately. Look forward to making some changes

In this deck, you should support the equipment-Voltron strategy more. In order to swarm out, you need to protect Khemba and equip a lot of stuff onto her. Don't use other effects to produce tokens.

As far as lands go, 35 are enough. So I'd cut 3 plains and Karoo (it messes up your turn 2).

As for cuts in the creatures dept, I'd cut Platinum Angel (not needed wincon, nor reliable unless you lock the game, but at that point you've won anyways), Ajani's Pridemate , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Armory Automaton , Auriok Steelshaper , Hero of Bladehold , Imposing Sovereign , Leonin Arbiter , Magus of the Moat , Thraben Doomsayer , Frontline Medic , Toolcraft Exemplar , Wall of Reverence , Relic Seeker (slow).

As far as equipments and stuff, I'd cut Marble Diamond (since your average CMC isn't that high and most of your spells are colourless), Moonsilver Spear , Sigil of Distinction , Skeleton Key , Ring of Thune , Mask of Memory .

ADD Anointed Procession ! As a good boardwipe for a finisher, I suggest Winds of Abandon . I suggest also Sun Titan , Bastion Protector , Balan, Wandering Knight as good lategame creatures. I suggest Kusari-Gama , Infiltration Lens , Trailblazer's Boots , Fireshrieker , Sword of Vengeance , Hammer of Nazahn , Argentum Armor , Chariot of Victory , Whispersilk Cloak as better equipments with respect to some of the ones I didn't mention for cutting.

Keep up the good work!

I'd pick up a Loxodon Warhammer since the lifelink could be pretty critical in keeping yourself in the game.

I would include Aurelia, the Warleader in the deck just for the sake that the double combat steps can really matter when it comes to trying to take someone out.

Balan, Wandering Knight and Heavenly Blademaster have some good synergy with equipment and can help you get around equipment coasts.

Also with Boros not drawing cards all too well I would include Mask of Memory into the deck since it can help you net some extra cards for attacking.

Balan, Wandering Knight seems like a good alternative threat (and its a cat!) Perhaps it's a good idea to include in case Kemba gets removed too many times.
