Grappling Hook Discussion

I really like this idea. As there are two different artworks for Brothers Yamazaki, you would definitely have to play one of each.
After a quick reasearch, the are cards to consider:
To make Izuka a little better, adding some more samurai might be good. There aren't that many in red. If you go voltron, adding a little deathtouch is useful by itself, and it's ridiculous with Ronin Cliffrider.

There are some great cards here to add to my version. Creeping Renaissance looks like a perfect draw card for this. I feel that the tempo of this deck is a bit slow. If you already run 40+ lands do you need to pick them out of the deck into hand. I think ramp maybe a better focus along with draw. It's ideal to let Borbo fill your hand. Dragon Mage and Reforge the Soul are nice draw effects. Also Fireshrieker and Grappling Hook are cheap and the double strike effects give two triggers of Borbo.

Pretty cool looking deck. I think white is my least favorite color, there is no way I would make a monowhite deck. I used to run a Selesnya Voltron deck and I had a hard time making it work. My biggest issue was that my commander would get taken out before I could finish anybody off and then I was left with a bunch of equipment laying around my battlefield. I did manage to win a few times with it and I think it's still a fun strategy either way.
I know a lot of times the only creature on board is the commander and that makes it scary to leave yourself wide open. Maybe something like a Ghostly Prison or Windborn Muse could help you with defenses so you can attack without having to worry too much about getting hit. Hall of Heliod's Generosity might be good to get back some of your enchantments if they end up in the graveyard. I'm not sure about recurring artifacts in white though. I noticed you have at least one card that does that but I don't really know of any others (in white). I don't really see how good Panharmonicon is here. There are a few ETB triggers but I don't see anything that really makes it worthwhile. I'm pretty sure Sram's ability doesn't trigger the Panharmonicon because Sram is a cast trigger not an ETB. I could be wrong though. I do really like the card and maybe I'm missing its purpose here but I think it could be replaced with something more synergistic.
I'm not sure if you have a budget to upgrade this deck, how your meta is, or if you plan on making any more revisions to it but I'll give a few more recommendations that are on the pricy side. Steelshaper's Gift is a tutor that fetches up equipment. It could slot in very nicely. Hammer of Nazahn is a pretty strong equipment card I think. It lets you attach equipment for free, which could come in very handy in a Voltron deck. If your meta is a little more casual, Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip can be a fun card. Godsend can be a pretty high CMC but it's pretty good removal and protection. Darksteel Plate is a pretty good equipment card. You are already running a lot of the budget options I would suggest, like Whispersilk Cloak is one of my all-time favorite cards. Argentum Armor , Quietus Spike and Grappling Hook are some budget equipment options I might suggest.
This post is probably more than you need but if you want any other info feel free to message me. Good luck with your next games with the deck!!

I was thinking of building a gwyn deck as well. Here are some cards I think could be cool to run in this deck. Obviously a lot of options.
- Colossus Hammer - this was built for syr gwyn in mind
- Explorer's Scope - ramp, always important
- Heartseeker - with gwyn, tap to kill target creature
- Surestrike Trident - if you have this and Colossus Hammer it reads, each creature taps to deal 10+ damage to an opponent.
- Ogre's Cleaver - cheap artifact and now free equip
- Haunted Cloak
- Infiltration Lens
- Vorrac Battlehorns - if you want to be mean, put this on syr gwyn
- Loxodon Warhammer
- Chariot of Victory
- Fleetfeather Sandals
- Moonsilver Spear - doesn't fit the theme but flying angels are always fun
- Scythe of the Wretched - this plus Grappling Hook means steal any creature you can kill that isn't tapped
- Strata Scythe - pick the best color of the three. keep in mind this includes lands opponents control
- Authority of the Consuls - slow everyone and gain life
- Blind Obedience - slow everyone down while draining them and gaining life
- Brave the Sands - never worry about swinging each turn and make chump blockers able to block two huge creatures
- Sigarda's Aid - just amazing
- Leonin Shikari - not a knight but now you can switch equipment for free in combat before damage is dealt
- Midnight Reaper
- Syr Alin, the Lion's Claw
- Knight of Grace
- Josu Vess, Lich Knight - late game win condition
- Mirran Crusader
- Vona, Butcher of Magan
- Fiendslayer Paladin
- Silverblade Paladin
Required are Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Surestrike Trident . Then you can just go down the line of creatures attaching all of your power increasing equipment and tapping them for tons of damage. If you have Leonin Shikari and Brave the Sands out, then you can all out attack and then do the tapping out on the endstep before your turn. If you don't have Surestrike Trident but instead have Heartseeker then you can just kill a creature for each one you control.

Heya! Finally managed to take a good look at your deck and I love it! I’ve been trying to convince a friend of mine to build him since he was released lol. Maybe your list can inspire him and make the difference.
I’ll admit my experience with colorless decks are limited still. I only just endeavored to build one of my own and it adopts more of a control/engine strategy. Still imma throw a couple suggestions at ya!
Planar Bridge while expensive allows you to fetch any and all permanents you need when you need it. Colorless has so few tutor options and this is among the best. While it doesn’t effect your commander’s cast trigger it can be used to fetch Unwinding Clock or any other piece to untap him anyway.
Since you wanna suit him up and punch people I think Silent Arbiter might do you proud. Protects you with a crawl space like effect and also limits their blockers so that if he has menace he will always get through.
On the other hand since you’re going voltron I really like the combination of Kusari-Gama and Grappling Hook the latter gives you double strike and the ability to choose which of your opponent’s creatures is gonna block him. The former splashes all that damage onto everything else they control for a pseudo board wipe.
If I come up with more I’ll be sure to let you know! Keep the colorless dream alive!
