Chariot of Victory Discussion

Just recently built Phage the Unstoppable and I think this is my favorite voltron commander. Super explosive and scary.
Liking your list a lot. See a lot of mono black good stuff. Good utility land base. Nether Void is just evil and perfect for Phage.
My two cuts would be Lotus Petal and Thrull Wizard. Could probably benefit from trimming 4 other creatures and adding some Phage focused cards.

Chariot of Victory, Helm of Kaldra and Haunted Cloak all give your commander haste. also maybe consider running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth with Cabal Coffers for mana ramp if you have them. Evil Twin seems like it would fit your theme as well.

The major nail in the coffin is the inconsistency in having the entire set together at once. Burning tutors isn't a real solution, as grabbing relatively mediocre Equipment in the hopes to have fun with an essentially immortal 9/9 isn't that efficient.

I think with this commander some more haste-giving stuff and more tutors will help you since Etrata wants to sling combat damage and go back into the deck.
For haste I would add in one or two more things like Chariot of Victory.
For tutors, I would suggest a Tunnel Vision to use on yourself. Long-Term Plans, Parallel Thoughts, and Distant Memories. Also cards like Flash of Insight or Prosperity seem useful for trying to dig through your deck.
+1 good luck with deck building

Cloudius I am aware of what colors Are available to you.
Looking at only equipment, there are 12 other than LG. 6 of which have oddCMC. My favorites include: Sword of Vengeance Swiftfoot Boots Assault Suit Chariot of Victory Helm of Kaldra Helm of the Host Go here for full list: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&text=+[haste]+![suspend]&color=+![R]+![G]&type=+![%22Creature%22]&subtype=+[%22Equipment%22] Think nothing of it.
That equals to 11 options. And there are more. If one is clever.

along with that, if you want to use Etrata as your primary win-con, you may want to run more haste equips so you don't just sit there twiddling your thumbs while everyone else gets a turn to remove Etrata before you even get to attack. i saw you have swiftfoot boots already, so other cheap cast alternatives to add can be Lightning Greaves and Ring of Valkas being the most mana efficient, to Strider Harness, Chariot of Victory, and Haunted Cloak as a slightly more expensive alternative.
lastly, I would sneak in a Hatred into the deck if you can, just to keep people off guard, when they thought they had a 3 turn clock, all of a sudden turned into insta-death by commander damage.

Another fun horsey that could actually find some use is Spitemare. It has synergy with your commander, with Blasphemous Act, and is a fiery horse. You could also potentially run Chariot of Victory, just for the flavor of it getting pulled by your bois, but it probably wouldn't do much to strengthen your deck. Two more potential tutors: Conflux and Guided Passage. While mana intensive, Conflux gets you your combo pieces in one go, or pulls you out of the deep end. Guided Passage is just silly and fun, and is a three mana get-three-cards.

Since you run Karametra, God of Harvests, have you considered Rhonas the Indomitable? Any Cat + Eminence = Rhonas the Indomitable can attack! 5/5 deathtouch, indestructible that can give trample to your Voltron cat! That's tempo.
Hammer of Nazahn is key to a Voltron strategy, especially the Bloodforged Battle-Axe. I would run an Eladamri's Call to pull Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith who can pull Hammer of Nazahn to the battlefield. It can also pull a Dryad Arbor as a modular / ramp spell too.
With so many artifacts you need a Puresteel Paladin, 1) He draws you a card when you play an artifact, that is amazing 2) He makes equip costs ! 3) With Leonin Shikari you can manipulate equipment at will. Add an Ancient Den and Tree of Tales gives you 2 more artifacts that you play as lands to get to the metalcraft on Puresteel Paladin. Sigarda's Aid also enables Voltron.
Parallel Lives (like Anointed Procession) is a CMC4 Doubling Season, won't double Fleecemane Lion monstrosity, but thats such a small sacrifice for the mana. There's also Primal Vigor but it's the same CMC as Doubling Season anyway.
Path to Exile is an awesome removal and a modular ramp if you need it as well (and have a creature).
Skyhunter Skirmisher is a nice built-in Doublestrike, which is awesome with equipments (especially ones with trample), but he does have a High CMC.
Sword of Light and Shadow and the protection: makes it so you can't use the Eminence ability on the equipped creature. Maybe worth it for the recursion but keep that in mind.
I really dislike Sword of Vengeance, I've read all the articles on it, I don't think the equip makes this viable. I'd almost always rather have a Chariot of Victory in most cases, or in this case probably a Umezawa's Jitte.
Lost Leonin is a nice cat, with Ajani, Caller of the Pride + Eminence he eliminates a player with 10 infect. I personally use other Doublestrike enablers like Silverblade Paladin and Berserk + several other creature tutors to try and get him off quite early. Understand if you don't like the infect mechanic, but I would think about him, with Eminence he's a 2-turn timer as well.
Steelshaper's Gift can help get some consistency on pulling Swiftfoot Boots or the such to your hand. Lightning Greaves also doesn't work with the Eminence trigger, I decided the upside of the equip wasn't worth the Shroud. Also once you put a Lightning Greaves onto a cat, you can't equip anything else to it (due to shroud). If you have another creature you can Equip it off then Equip the other Equip, then Re-Equip it for , but leaves him unprotected for a second, and requires control of a second creature. When your playing Voltron, you usually don't have a bunch, but maybe you have tokens. Just thought I would mention anyway.
Stoneforge Mystic is amazing, on a similar note Stonehewer Giant requires an immediate response too. I've found him a high threat level, and once out I'm just pulling solutions, like: Protection from , Trample, Lifelink, Deathtouch, Etc, whatever is needed to overcome the current blocking / board position, instant speed, and instant equip. Doesn't get much better than that!
I'd have to confirm, but I don't think Nacatl War-Pride extra tokens enter attacking, I think they just double the tokens but lose the attacking. They doubled ones may stay though, but might be exiled still, I would look into it. If they don't attack and don't stay, I'm not sure I would run him.
Not sure Ajani Unyielding is worth the mana cost, but, he does draw cards which is never a bad thing.
With more tutors, I found that I don't need to run both Behemoth Sledge and Loxodon Warhammer because instead I could just always tutor Loxodon Warhammer when I would have drawn Behemoth Sledge to get more consistent use of the more powerful equipments. But you've got some mass mana ramping going on here might not matter.
