Bloodforged Battle-Axe Discussion

Monomanamaniac on Balan The Knight of Arms

I wouldn't recommend Fireshrieker Balan has double strike virtually every time you play her. I'd recommend Inquisitor's Flail Conqueror's Flail or Hammer of Nazahn instead. I like your build, it's got some decent synergy. I did notice you left out Path to Exile, and I'd probably suggest Mangara, the Diplomat, Land Tax, Teferi's Protection, Flawless Maneuver, Prowler's Helm, Bloodforged Battle-Axe (which is crazy with Balan because you can use her ability at instant speed to equip the copies), Heliod's Intervention, Inspiring Statuary, Godsend, Heartstone, just to name a few things to consider. I do like your take on this deck though, it's very interesting

Uh oh, seems I missed 2 cards. Nahiri and Bloodforged Battle-Axe need to get...well, the ax. The battle-axe can be substituted easily but Nahiri you might have trouble with. Sorry, I didn’t realize these weren’t Modern Legal either.

Monomanamaniac on Balan, one-punch woman

casual_competitive Balan, Wandering Knight has essentially built in double strike. Any of the double strike options for it would only be good with other equipment, and if it has at least 2 equipment then it has double strike. Typically I don't play her till I have at least 2 equipment and 6 mana open. Bloodforged Battle-Axe in particular is amazing because if you can deal damage with the first strike, you can use Balan's ability to equip the copy axe at instant speed and give it double strike. It's an amazing combo that is exemplary of why I use the battle-axe to begin with. Balan is great because she can gain double-strike on her own, freeing you up to focus on utility and the huge power-up type equipment

if your doing voltron having double strike is a must, not only do you do twice as much damage but stuff like Bloodforged Battle-Axe triggers twice.

Bloodforged Battle-Axe can give you a tone of arifacts, even if you don't equip all of them. Same with Thopter Assembly.

Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer might help. Thada Adel, Acquisitor is freaking amazing when she steals artifacts from everybody.

Hellkite Tyrant is an alternate wincon.

I figured I should at least comment on your list. I don't see how Luminous Broodmoth is good in your list due to the lack of sac outlets and how many fliers you have. Personally I think you run too many equipment, but it might be better for your build because going face is what it does. I do have a suggestion in Godo, Bandit Warlord > Stonehewer Giant. It has two solid abilities and can be used with Hammer of Nazahn to make sure your equipment actually attach if someone puts a Stony Silence effect into play.

I also think Bloodforged Battle-Axe and Puresteel Paladin are very good in this list. These two cards allow you to draw lots of value and lets you put pressure on the board without having to over commit. With Hammer out Bloodforged Battle-Axe has the ability to attach itself so you can get more damage with first strike and extra combat rounds allowing you to attach to different creatures too.\

I also think Goblin Engineer has a slot in this list over the lesser tutor effects for equipment say Steelshaper's Gift. If your not playing enough grave effects steelshaper is probably better though.
