Bastion Protector Discussion

My first advice would be that your artifact count is simply too low to reliably hit Metalcraft. I would add the artifact lands (Darksteel Citadel, Ancient Den, and Great Furnace) and more strong, cheap equipment (like O-Naginata, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Sword of the Animist, Inquisitor's Flail, Fireshrieker, etc).
I've never liked Hero's Blade much, since its equip cost is so prohibitively high unless you attach it to a legendary creature.
Mirran Crusader seems both on-theme and powerful. Bastion Protector can protect your commander pretty easily. Silverblade Paladin and Duelist's Heritage give that most-sought-after keyword, double strike. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Akiri, Line-Slinger both seem really good here.
I didn't have much time to really make an in-depth analysis at the moment, so I'll take a little more time to look it over later, but you definitely get my +1 ;)

Bastion Protector is a great card to protect your commander, and the +2/+2 goes well with the voltron.

Phaetion BTW, I love how similar our deck lists are. Even stuff like Bastion Protector, Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Hanna, Ship's Navigator and Cataclysmic Gearhulk. I think Duelist's Heritage is a potentially crazy card to include in this deck as well. It could end games very quickly

Daedalus19876: That was the card I secretly wanted in.
enpc: I've decided to cut two wrath effects, but I'm not replacing these with tutors. Nor is Monastery Mentor coming back. Bastion Protector would return before it, but I'm removing something else for it.

Even though Recruiter of the Guard IS the best of these options, I'd still try to find space for Bastion Protector. The card is really good, doubly so when you're playing many board wipes, triply so when your commander is hexproof.

Deck for reference: Cojutron.
I've added more boardwipes, totaling ~7. Unfortunately, this means that Monastery Mentor becomes the weakest link, and I aim to take him out, but I'm stuck for options.
Bastion Protector: As the deck is part voltron, the indestructibility comes in handy, including when I opt to add the sideboard cards in and switch the general.
Recruiter of the Guard: I have 7 targets. Abolisher will be the weakest card in the toolbox, but the rest seem really good for the job, including Sad Robot.
Thalia, Heretic Cathar: I already have Obedience, so what's stopping me from having a second effect? I'm wary of having too many of these kinds of effects, especially when I can tutor for them.
Any advice here? I will need it for tomorrow. Thanks in advance.

Sorry. The bottom right is kinda my blindspot. I expected it to be put in the support section. In that case you may want to consider either a Ghostway for the Sunforger package, or a Legion's Initiative for more relevant re-entry timing and the static anthem if you're in an every turn is two boardwipes meta like me. Unfortunately there isn't much that beats the ever present Cyclonic Rift.
If you're a fortunate soul who actually gets to play with creatures in their meta then you can probably make space for a Bastion Protector for the Queen or a Selfless Squire to protect yourself (and let fools think they can take the crown) when Comeuppance is unavailable. If you're deck isn't in need of defenses you can go harder with a Legion Loyalist for easy/cheap first strike/trample/no-chumpblock-mode for all your deathtouch/haste. In super low curves you can actually take a Prophetic Flamespeaker as a sword wielder if you want more cards than Armory Automaton can offer. If theres a lot of artifacts in your meta Into the Core can fit in the forger as well as a Master Warcraft if you're into more flexible combat trickery.
Hopefully something there makes up for my mistake.
