Hall of the Bandit Lord Discussion

I think Bloodsworn Steward is almost redundant because Daddy Edgar already has haste. The +2/+2 is nice, but you can already get beefed up by a lot of other creatures like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Necropolis Regent and Stromkirk Captain plus other cards like Cathars' Crusade, Door of Destinies and Vanquisher's Banner. I would say add more haste enablers like Hanweir Battlements, Hall of the Bandit Lord and/or Olivia's Bloodsworn. If you need more draw, Id suggest Tymna the Weaver even if she isnt a vamp.

Hall of the Bandit Lord can be especially potent in voltron decks.
I think you could use a lot more draw. I personally always have 8-10 sources of it in my decks. Rishkar's Expertise, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Elemental Bond, Shamanic Revelation, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Harmonize, etc. are options.
Death touch is especially potent with trample because you only need to assign 1 point of damage to the blocker to allow the rest to spillover. Basilisk Collar, Gorgon Flail, Gorgon's Head and Quietus Spike (especially this) fit the build and complement the fight mechanic too because now your Elvish Mystic can kill near anything.
Last year I had a voltron Molimo deck with a sub theme of tribal (only) legendary creature that was a blast to play. Loved casting Silvos so hope you have fun here!

Ok here we go. Since I'm such a nice guy I've taken the liberty of making your draft chaff better.
Here are the lands that could realistically be added to this deck:
Utility LandsScavenger Grounds:I dont mind if you dont use this one
Academy Ruins:Seems good with the combo being artifacts
Buried Ruin:See academy ruins
Hall of the Bandit Lord:Haste-y brago? Your choice.
Since the win con is infinite blinks we need to make sure we have what we need to win with that also the there's still some blink creatures you "need":
Spreading Seas:Disrupts and is good with infinite blinks, kills things like Gaea's cradle and such.
Sensei's Divining Top:More Broken Shit
Venser, Shaper Savant:Better as a creature honestly.
Snapcaster Mage:Nough said.
Prophetic Prism: I was kind of thinking of this one. Don't overlook it.
Whir of Invention:Just yes. Your mana base can probably already support it, but with the new lands for shuure.
Ill continue this some other time Im too tired to continue

Hi nice deck, I love voltron builds! +1
Some tutors could also really help you out to look for answers/tempo since your deck seems to be more of the aggressor type. Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory and Stonehewer Giant are really good in an equipment based deck. I also would recommend to run a Recruiter of the Guard combined with Stoneforge Mystic these two can help you big time with building a strong board fast.
For lands there are some good options to to be considered to:
I have a mono-white voltron build, it's more build on making my creatures almost impossible to remove trough protection. Please take a look if you're interested >A Mustering Marshal

Caldera Lake seems like a pointless addition. It enters tapped and can only produce the 2 colors you're splashing at the cost of a life. I wouldn't add Caldera Lake, big drawbacks without much payoff.
As for the Demons. If you really want to go for a tribal deck, you're gonna have to remove most (If not all) creatures that don't share your tribal creature type. (I managed to make a deck that works only using 20 creatures (21 with Commander) that were only tribal correlated, so it is possible for you to try)
Here's a budget friendly 38 card landbase:
Crypt of Agadeem
Path of Ancestry (You will not be able to scry unless you play conspiracy. May I suggest changing Marchesa for Sol'kanar the Swamp King? Yes you lose the Dethrone and being able to return a card by default, but a Tribal deck should be lead by a tribal commander. Your choice entirely)
City of Brass (I don't like it, as it will still deal damage even with Chromatic Lantern in play, but your choice)
Duskmantle, House of Shadow (Put a demon into your gy, reanimate it, or the most obvious approach)
Feel free to make some changes, but these cards are cheap and will help your mana base (If you don't like Bojuka, replace it with a Swamp.)

Byuante Thanks again. I am aware the mana base is terrible and actually this is where I was thinking I could deal with the other issue I had. The deck really needs to be dethroning so that I can do some of the more messed up stuff I want to do. Black Market and my opponents somehow managing to play slower than me are what kept the deck going in the games I did well. The haste comment was just a quick this would be nice before I forget that I thought about it thing.
I'm looking at using
I have grown a distaste for the bounce lands. They will be the first things to go. I don't want to shrink my demon numbers too much but I'm thinking 15 down from 21 is still plenty. Which leaves 3 open spots if I added the pain lands and would have me at 37 lands. So Phyrexian Arena and Swiftfoot Boots. $10 for a land just feels wrong to me... After I improve the deck a bit and play some more I'll consider the shocks again but I don't want to pick them up for a deck and then pull said deck apart...
In the end the deck is trying to be a demon gimmick if I lose too much of that then the obvious bad choices I made like leaving out Chasm Skulker become questions of why did I do that without any answer.

merrowMania: Hall of the Bandit Lord is a decent card if you are focusing more on combat wins than I am. Also, like any good cEDH deck, I often do quite a bit of damage to myself through Mana Crypt and Ancient Tomb, etc. so the 3 life from Hall of the Bandit Lord adds up, especially when doing Candelabra of Tawnos shenanigans. You are right about Maze of Ith though. That card is one of the few pieces left from when I built this deck as a casual deck. However, even in competitive games, if enough stax pieces hit the field to shut people down, they will start attacking with whatever creatures they have and Maze of Ith has saved me far too many times for me to be willing to cut it. Also, like every other land, Candelabra of Tawnos allows for some ridiculous stuff to happen with it.
That said; Tana, the Bloodsower/Tymna the Weaver, Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Captain Sisay, Animar, Soul of Elements, Karador, Ghost Chieftain, and even some builds of The Gitrog Monster (and this is just the Tier 1-1.5 lists) attack with creatures often enough that Maze of Ith is still useful. Considering I run other lands that do not traditionally tap for mana, both Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Chromatic Lantern are important cards used to circumvent this and are cards I try to play early in most games. All of this is enough form me to justify the inclusion.
TLDR: Maze of Ith has been better for me than Hall of the Bandit Lord due to this list focusing more on combo/stax than combat wins and Maze of Ith is better at keeping me alive if I slow the game down with multiple stax pieces.
Ohthenoises: Staff of Nin makes more sense. I was thinking that you were referencing making infinite mana off of the Spine of Ish Sah + Paradox Engine combo and then just using Staff of Domination as your win condition. This is definitely a reasonable Kuldotha Forgemaster line, especially because it still works if you only have exactly enough mana from nonland sources to recast the Spine of Ish Sah.
