Golem-Skin Gauntlets Discussion
1 week ago
Batterskull and Champion's Helm are way over the budget. Masterwork of Ingenuity is mainly good with Battterskull and swords of something and something, so it doesn't have much synergy. Golem-Skin Gauntlets only give offence to Valduk, which is less preferable than defense and utility, as my strongest gameplan is not to smack face with him, but to exploit him; every equipment that gives offence serves another purpose as well - Veteran's Armaments for instance virtually gives more offence than the gauntlets, but also helps my commander survive combat. Finally - Mask of Avacyn is already in the deck and Lightning Greaves give shroud, which disables more than 1/4th of my deck from functioning, and even if I do switch them out every turn, it'd get so telegraphed that they won't protect me from anything anyway. I'd stated most of these things in the description, but it doesn't seem to open properly.

elgosu1337 Whoah, thanks for the feedback!
Now that I think about it, Rite of the Raging Storm is like a 5 mana equipment/aura that just gives 1 elemental +2/+0, which is totally abysmal! :DD Anywho, I'd totally replace it, and Pandemonium seems like a strong contender, but i'm not sure how sold I am on cards that could benefit my opponents against me, since I don't have much experience with commander.
That being said, Nim Deathmantle seems a bit steep of a cost. I'm also not keen on Inquisitor's Flail and Golem-Skin Gauntlets, because beating my opponents down with my commander is not my best win condition, and I'd rather protect him anyway. My criteria for equipment like those is that they should at least help his survivability or provide some utility - hard line offence is not enough. When you do the math Bludgeon Brawl turns out like a really expensive equipment that has a chance to "draw" me another one (which doesn't seem worth it).
Homura and In the Web of War should be treated like the same +2/+0 effect by large in this deck, but I'm not sure if I'd cut the token generator X spells in favor of those - it'd take some thinking. Finally - Panharmonicon is really intriguing (although I don't know if I have enough support for it yet), Masterwork of Ingenuity seems quite ok, but Sculpting Steel is the bomb! Sadly, Semblance Anvil is virtual card disadvantage, so I'm not too sure how worth it is to play it in a mono red.
I'm really grateful for the feedback, and if you have any more suggestions, I'm open!

I really like what you're trying to do with the Elementals, especially the Indomitable Creativity and Dragon Throne. You could try In the Web of War as another Ogre Battledriver and Pandemonium as another Warstorm Surge. Panharmonicon helps all of that. Homura, Human Ascendant can make your Elementals fly if you can find a way to sac him.
Cheaper equipment would be helpful. Golem-Skin Gauntlets and Masterwork of Ingenuity are cheap and strong. Inquisitor's Flail should double your damage. Nim Deathmantle can revive Valduk if he dies. Semblance Anvil can make all your artifacts cheaper.Bludgeon Brawl allows you to equip your mana rocks as well. Sculpting Steel can become whatever you need.
I would probably skip Firecat Blitz and Tempt with Vengeance since they are more mana-intensive. Rite of the Raging Storm doesn't synergize with your other stuff and can help opponents with sac outlets.

Thank you all for the comments!
TheRedGoat just trying to find room for Daretti and lattice hahah been very busy! I am absolutely trying to play it aggro tokens and value engine all at once haha! We'll see how it goes! Slate of Ancestry is either just okay or straight up game winning, Boros burns through it's hand fast so even paying 4 to draw 3 when topdecking is great, or when i have tokens out it's draw 20. Skullclamp is just a really good equipment but we'll see how it plays if I ever get the chance to test the deck! Thank you!
Don't forget to upvote everyone! Helps more people see the deck and builds momentum! Thank you all!

Golem-Skin Gauntlets can turn any creature into a corporal, while Smuggler's Copter and Cultivator's Caravan both work into the game plan in multiple ways. I like the idea of attaching Myr Turbine to one of it's tokens and still using it while getting the +5/+0.

I will admit that the three Kaldra pieces are 'win more' type cards and the reason I originally added them was so that I could actually assemble Kaldra. However, that being said, the have come in handy on multiple occasions. With Zetalpa being 8 CMC, it doesn't many exile effects (Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Merciless Eviction, and their ilk) to put him out of range of being cast for a few turns. When that happens I have to result to suiting up my 'backup' generals in the 99 (Balan, Wandering Knight, Armory Automaton, Heliod, God of the Sun, and Oketra the True).
