Bastion Protector Discussion

Once you get the money to spare, invest in the Swords of X and Y and an Umezawa's Jitte.

Zulaport Cutthroat can kill through player Hexproof and it can kill the entire table in one fell swoop. Also it's redundancy is important.
I have never been unhappy with having Bastion Protector on board, it protects Alesha from at least one board wipe and it's buff makes Alesha Cmdr damage much more potent. I think it is worthy of being unrecurrable, just like Aurelia.

The infinites that would trigger Zulaport are going to kill in their own right anyways without the Cutthroat and Bastion isn't recurable outside of Sun Titan and can't be tutored up with Recruiter.
Blood Artist edges out Zulaport in this one only because it'll kill off of an opponents infinite sac shenanigans too, not just yours. It'll also protect you from the same sort of combo to a certain extent since it has life gain built in.

+1 for mono-EDH. I also love the equipment strategy!
If you're running Steelshaper's Gift, then Open the Armory is also a nice include as a tutor. Argentum Armor and Skullclamp are staples in a equipment deck. With Skullclamp you have a good use for all your tokens. Bastion Protector is a great substitute for Darksteel Plate since she is a little cheaper. And last, Oketra's Monument is a great token generator and gives a nice discount on your white spells.
I to have a equipment based deck with Odric, Lunarch Marshal as the commander, it's not completely budget though but if you're looking for inspiration feel free to take a look!

Hey, I am curious how you would rate my Doran deck. I think I have a better setup than the one you commented on.
Curious about your findings...

Suns_Champion, that coincidence is hilarious!
Timber Protector - Most Doran decks go towards Treefolk Tribal, which I'm not trying to emulate. Because of that, this deck doesn't run many Treefolk. Bastion Protector is strictly better here because of that, but I don't run either as Doran is usually left alone by targeted removal.
Tree of Redemption - Biggest issue with it is the defender, as I'm also trying to avoid most defender creatures (Hence why I don't run Axebane Guardian). I run Perdition because it has the added benefit of sucking the life out of my opponents, and Souls of the Faultless for the same reason/dissuading attacks.
Dusk / Dawn - Great card, good for removal and returning my creatures
Sylvan Caryatid - It's early ramp with a good amount of health. Great suggestion
Kin-Tree Invocation - Yes it will, most of the time, be 2 mana for an 8/8, and that's the problem. I've always had that problem with it, a lot of cards here have negative effects toward cards with high power/same p/t
Chromatic Lantern - Good idea
Also, thanks for pointing out the problem with Triumph of Ferocity, for I thought it was just an enchantment version of Abzan Beastmaster. I've since correct that mistake.
Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to suggest more :p
