Brass Squire Discussion

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

I feel like with Squire + Toll Collector + Darksteel Myr you're going to give your opponent a hell of a time getting around your slinging capabilities. It also saves you on some color restrictions, too.
I had an old voltron deck where I ran those guys and it worked pretty well. My problem was figuring out a strong enough draw engine to ensure plenty of toys for my boys to play with. I ended up going with Otherworld Atlas, which sometimes backfired when my opponent got cards, too.
Might go Mardu and run black draws, like Indulgent Tormentor. But that's besides the point.

Now aside from the combo and the misunderstanding about sunforger requirements, I see a few problems with the deck.
The two main ones are that your mana base is simply not up to snuff for dealing with all those mana costs, both in side and main. I recommend cutting all the black and blue mainboard cards for now. Research is the only card that needs green, so 8 forests doesn't make a lot of sense here. What you need here is a way to make that UG on the fly without compromising on your white/red land base too much. Manamorphose really IS the best card for this, as it can be either cast from hand or with Sunforger when you want to cast Research, and honestly I have a hard time seeing how the Research plan works without it, plus it's the only way to actually combo as described in the above post. So if Manamorphose is too expensive I'm afraid you are better off with a pure R/W deck. Also your deck should up the land count to 22-24 since the budget prevents the fixing and low curve my deck has, you are better off with some extra lands. I would run a playset of Evolving Wilds in there along with a basic island and a forest, and another copy of Paradise Mantle. Another excellent way to fix mana in this budget version would be Sword of the Animist.
The second problem is that your creature count is too low, like way way too low. If you include the manlands and living weapons my deck has 15 creatures, and that is still skirting on the low side IMO. So I'm assuming Puresteel Paladin was cut for budget reasons here, and obviously the Inkmoth Nexus is very expensive too.
So what are good budget alternatives here, for starters I think Thraben Inspector is a great alternative here for a cheap early body that also adds an artifact to the board. Brass Squire can provide extra free equips and act as a replacement for the paladin. Stonehewer Giant is a good lategame bomb in this deck to run as a 1 or 2 of. I also recommend running a couple manlands as a last ditch creature to equip sunforger on, for example Forbidding Watchtower. Also you can run a Mortarpod as the second living weapon. Your total creature count should be 14-20 including manlands and living weapons.
I really recommend at least 1 Boros Charm, it protects you against boardwipes as long as you have a sunforger equipped.

If you put a Temple Garden or Savannah in Nature's Lore for Farseek. Nature's Lore is CMC2 for 1 Mana = Net -1. Farseek it enters tapped so it's CMC2 for 0 Mana = Net -2. Costs you 2 life though for Temple Garden. In addition to mana fixing, they also work with Sunpetal Grove ETB.
You should run Puresteel Paladin instead of Brass Squire, if Brass Squire was like CMC1 it would make sense, but CMC3, that's crazy. Puresteel Paladin also gives you the draw for playing artifacts/equipments!
