Champion's Helm Discussion

Oooh I love Zada, such great value out of tiny spells and creatures.
I know space can be a bit tight with this kind of deck but I feel that she is especially vulnerable to targeted removal so I would double down on the hexproofing:Champion's Helm and/or Glaring Spotlight I think are your cheapest options mana wise for this.

Something about your list struck me as odd. Your commander Silas Renn, Seeker Adept can't use his main ability while Grafdigger's Cage is in play. After all, the cage states that: "Player's can't cast cards in graveyards and libraries". Combine that with the following MTG rule:
103.2. When a rule or effect says something can happen and another effect says it cant, the cant effect wins. For example, if one effect reads You may play an additional land this turn and another reads You cant play land cards this turn, the effect that keeps you from playing lands wins out. Note that adding abilities to objects and removing abilities from objects dont fall under this rule; see rule 402.9.
And we've got an issue.
Other than that you've got a nice deck here! I'd probably add some more equipment to make Akiri even more powerful like Champion's Helm, Hero's Blade and Loxodon Warhammer. I'd also consider Myr Retriever and Etherium Sculptor and in case you have the cash, Metalworker might be awesome.
I hope this helps you and I hope you can find the time to comment on one of my decks too. Happy gaming!

Cool deck, I love how Taigam just amps up the value of instant/sorceries to crazy high levels.
My main qualm I see with this deck is that you have very few ways to protect Taigam. Reconnaissance is powerful and all, but it doesn't get around the fact that Taigam is still targetable/destroyable. A few suggestions:
Darksteel Plate, Hammer of Nazahn, Shield of Kaldra, Indestructibility, Shielded by Faith, take your pick. Taigam has to stay on the field at all costs, you lose him, your deck slows to a crawl. Heck even Bastion Protector would be worth a look.
Counter spells should also be in this deck to help protect Taigam. Supreme Will immediately comes to mind, with rebound it's fantastic. Blue has a long list of counterspells, I suggest you find your favorites and run a few. Cryptic Command would be the MVP of your deck if you had it.
Hope this helps, happy spell-slinging :)

Maybe some Champion's Helm for the Gideons, when they're in Human Soldier mode?

I really really like the idea behind this deck. Now that you've fixed your mana base, it looks really competitive.
The only real problem I see is your lake of board wipes. Sometimes you just need to reset the field. The suggestion from mcmackerel for Austere Command is excellent in that it gives you the option for the type of board wipe you want, depending on the situation you're in.
My specific recommendation would be Scourglass. It's perfect for any Voltron deck. And sine you only have 3 legendary creatures in your deck, I'd recommend taking out Champion's Helm. I know you'll want to put that on Nazahn, but if it becomes later in the game and he becomes to expensive, you only have two other targets. The +2/+2 is good but not worth it especially since you can get hexproof/shroud from a bunch of different sources you already have.

I like the Voltron-esque theme of the deck with the many cheap pump spells. The one issue I can see you having is your commander getting hated out with only a few ways to protect him. As such, I would recommend Champion's Helm, and protection cards like Floating Shield or Emerge Unscathed (there's a lot more protection spells to choose from too).
Also, it might be useful to throw in some other cards that work well with instants and sorceries like Bloodwater Entity, Niblis of Frost, Stormchaser Mage, and of course Narset, Enlightened Master. Also, if you have a little money to splurge with, I'd definitely recommend Narset Transcendent if you like Planeswalkers and Rebound.
Oh, and maybe cards like World at War could find a place in your deck for the potential to activate Rogue's Passage or Slip Through Space, play a bunch of pump, and have it all carry over to a second damage step, causing you to have a 1 turn lethal with commander damage.
Regardless, you have inspired me to try and make my own Jeskai deck, potentially with Shu Yun and Narset as interchangeable commanders. Definitely earned an upvote from me!
