Grafted Exoskeleton , when combined with literally any other equipment to give balan doublestrike it is a one shot to one opponent.. some man lands like Inkmoth Nexus is also pretty decent in equipment commanders as it's yet another body in your mana base that can have sword grippers.
Now if you're looking for slightly more taxing effects Aven Mindcensor is pretty go to as it's nearly impossible for a commander player to not want to search their library for something at some point. Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes also both help protect your creatures pretty well.
Now you are running Stoneforge Mystic , it's almost injustice to not run Batterskull alongside it, the strongest living weapon is also a rather nice creature to equip when you have to. Umezawa's Jitte is also rather powerful as you can control the board pretty well with the removal effect, the pump is powerful on a doublestriker, balan especially can snowball with it, first double it gets 4 charges (that can be proliferated) and then the next turn you can pump him for +8/+8 and just kill an opponent with commander dmg.
now much tired, but I just have to recommend my favorite double striker Mirran Crusader , naturally has protection from most common removal and biggest bodies that could normally block, has double strike, much fun.

Dunes of the Dead is neat one to keep in mind. I don't think it's good enough, but definitely one to keep in mind.
The standout tutor targets are the land destruction and Bojuka Bog when the matchup warrants them, and Gavony Township and Stirring Wildwood . Township wrecks opposing creature decks like Humans and E-Tron. And Stirring Wildwood can block Mantis Rider really effectively.
Interestingly, I don't feel the need to play a Horizon Canopy . This deck almost always has too many things to do with its mana already.
GWC is definitely not the best way to use Elvish Reclaimer . A Naya deck with Wrenn and Six is definitely the best way, but W6 is so expensive right now and I want to actually build a deck in paper with Elvish Reclaimer .
I wish I knew more about GW decks. Does this deck want Thalia? What about Voice of Resurgence or Qasali Pridemage ? Is Noble Hierarch better than Giver of Runes ? Can I run both or is that too many 1-drops? I might have to make this into either Bant or Junk so that I can play the midrange cards that I'm more familiar with. Naya without Wrenn and Six is also appealing because of Bloodbraid Elf .

I feel like you need ways to protect your key pieces, like Chief Engineer , as there will be far too many games where you auto-lose when he’s kill-spelled.
I think you should possibly run a plan B if you can’t get your convoke/etc engine going. Including Tron lands and Expedition Map might be worth considering?

list of possilbe clerics to consider:
Heliod, God of the Sun - okay, not a cleric, but makes cleric tokens
Alms Collector - good card draw engine in EDH - prevents players from drawing their deck in one go also
Auriok Replica - good sac for anti-commander damage, fits cleric type, colorless to cast. not super amazing, but worth mentioning
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim - not all that useful until you gain some life, then amazing removal. and 2/3 deathtouch for 2 isn't bad either
Battlefield Medic - damage prevention based on clerics. nothing to special, but tribal themed, so I mention it here.
Beloved Chaplain - evasion that's hard to top - can't be blocked by creatures, can't be removed by creatures.
Blind Zealot - sacs to destroy target creature when it hits a player, good for general
Cabal Archon - sac outlet? check. Cleric tribal? check. sadistic grin? double check.
Cabal Executioner - on par with blind zealot - lacks the evasion, but doesn't sac to activate. mixed bag, but not horrible
Children of Korlis - sacs to revert life total to start of turn? yes please
Devout Chaplain - most clerics are humans, exile is good. enough said.
Eight-and-a-Half-Tails - good protection for your side of the field.
Entomber Exarch - cleric that can reanimate or force pitch from opponents. not gamebreaker, but solid card with options
Frontline Medic - clerics are indistructable as long as 3 swing? seems good
Giver of Runes - really should be vodka-aunt of runes, but w/e, still good
High Priest of Penance - great to chump with, better with aethreos, best when indistructable
Kor Sanctifiers - decent artifact / enchantment removal on a cleric body, not much else to say.
Leonin Arbiter - the staple of death & taxes and hate bears is, in fact, a cleric. seems useful.
Leonin Relic-Warder - fiend hunter for artifacts & enchantments, not much else to say.
Mikaeus, the Lunarch - cleric that slowly buffs your side
Order of Whiteclay - recusion cleric. not as useful once it gets vigilence, so fair warning.
Pontiff of Blight - mass extort is disgusting. seven toughness is hard to remove.
Ravos, Soultender - recursion + steroids = win
Remorseful Cleric - mass graveyard remval + evasion is good
Shaman en-Kor - this guy is bonkers, and with any form of damage prevention makes your side nigh unkillable
Sin Collector - exiles instants & sorceries, solid card. never returns them either. probably is on a wanted list in some libraries for back charges
True Believer - if you don't want people to target you, ivory mask with legs is a cleric too
Tymna the Weaver - less useful in duels, but solid for mass card draw otherwise
Vile Deacon - cleric tribal lord for black, comparible to doubtless one
Weathered Wayfarer - land tax on legs. still a cleric
Whipgrass Entangler - ghostly prison based on clerics for mana, but single target per use
Whisper, Blood Liturgist - creature recusion that nukes for 6 with general out, or mass reanimation if opponen't don't take it.
Profane Prayers - not an X spell, but cleric tribal nuke seems kinda on-theme.
