Hammer of Nazahn Discussion

Seems like a fun idea. If opponents don't play creatures to prevent the win-con, swing for commander damage.
Ninjutsu isn't going to help you much since Etrata triggers on damaging a player, but the return to hand effects are smart. IMO, for this deck to work you need better evasion and better protection. Whispersilk Cloak is a 2-for-1 and should definitely be in your deck.
Protection: Since Etrata is a potentially fast win condition (from any one opponent's perspective), they'll gun hard for her. Swiftfoot boots is not enough. You have access to cheap 1-shot spells like Unlikely Aid and Without Weakness , or equipment ( Darksteel Plate , Hammer of Nazahn , Shield of Kaldra , etc.)

i'm noticing some problems that you have with too little recursion and too little in the ways of protecting her from targeted removal. cards like Faith's Reward , Second Sunrise , Resurrection and False Defeat are really good to make sure your creatures come back when you get blown up after you summon your god emperor angel. you also are mono white so the problem with that is your card draw is very limited to really get going. take a look at cards like Mind's Eye , Scroll Rack + Land Tax . it's a great way to draw 3 a turn for one mana. Staff of Nin is a good passive draw for you every turn and you should absolutely look at putting The Immortal Sun in your deck. card is nuts and fucks on planeswalkers at the same time which only really affects one card in your deck. other cards that will help with your voltron strategy are various cards like Steelshaper's Gift , Open the Vaults , Stonehewer Giant and Stoneforge Mystic . various equipments that are really good for what you wanna do are things like Champion's Helm , Darksteel Plate , Whispersilk Cloak , any of the sword of cards (just gonna put a link to all the sword of cards of your choice all but body and mind are sweet https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?name=+%5Bsword%5D+%5Bof%5D+%5Band%5D), Batterskull , Sword of Vengeance Hammer of Nazahn . certain creatures that are just good stuff that you should think about are Selfless Squire , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Karmic Guide , Reveillark , Linvala, Keeper of Silence also look at putting in Nahiri, the Lithomancer for a good planeswalker for equipment
cards i'm seeing that are just meh: Aegis Angel , Resolute Archangel , Banisher Priest , Fiend Hunter , Herald of the Host (doesn't really do anything to make your commander the one shot machine you want), Deathless Angel , Oracle's Vault (becomes to easily blown up right after you put all the work into making it work), Emancipation Angel , Divine Visitation (i get why you have it there for the 1/1 spirits you make, but it's not worth it), Requiem Angel .
other then that you just trim the fat of cards that don't help make brisela your one shot machine you're looking for. hope this helped!

Well Balan, Wandering Knight isn't actually Selesnya but I would argue he is the strongest equipment commander of these three. Voltron commanders get targeted...a lot...so the ability to reattach ALL of your equipment for is very strong. Granted the Hammer of Nazahn , which would be fetch-able by Nazahn, will equip for free but only when the equip first enters the battlefield.
The thing that slows equipment decks down the most is having to equip cards they already paid for over and over and over...It gets frustrating even when you have ways to get around it in the 99. Having a way around equip costs on the commander should be a lot better.

multimedia I agree that Gideon Blackblade is better than the one I have at the moment so I went ahead and swamped them. As Akroma's Memorial , I honestly have it in there because I already have a copy but I'll just have to find a new home for it. I also took out Mass Calcify , Deploy to the Front (to help with the cmc), and Spear of Heliod . I want to keep Helm of the Host if I can to satisfy my Johnny tendencies xD. So I added a little equipment with Stoneforge Mystic , Sigarda's Aid , Kor Outfitter , and Hammer of Nazahn . I'm also thinking of adding Puresteel Paladin but I'm not sure if I have enough artifacts to justify it. Maybe swap Spear back in for Honor of the Pure

My two cents:
(1) you need more evasion. You have a metric ton of +1/+1 counters, which is great... but only 2-3 things that give trample and only 1-2 other pieces of evasion. Against the wrong deck, you'll get chump blocked all day. These specific cards are mostly just examples, but consider adding unblockable ( Suspicious Bookcase , Whispersilk Cloak ); deathtouch ( Gorgon Flail , Nightshade Peddler ); trample / multi-purpose ( Loxodon Warhammer , Haunted Cloak ).
(2) you need more protection. Everyone will gun for your doggo, knowing that it's your whole win-con. You have a few things, but not enough IMO. Add more indestructible ( Hammer of Nazahn ) and hexproof ( Mask of Avacyn , Archetype of Endurance ).
I'd suggest culling some of the +1/+1 cards - especially one-shot like Battlegrowth . Also, shroud isn't great with voltron because you can't target/enchant/equip, so I'd lose Lightning Greaves and Aspect of Mongoose .
Looks like a fun deck!

Nice seeing the less common tribes being given attention. Looks like you have done a good job finding the staples that fit well with Kemba.
I have a few suggestions despite this:
- Stoneforge Masterwork : seems pretty cool, good synergy with with Kemba + better with more equipments and cats.
- Balan, Wandering Knight : has some anti-synergy with Kemba granted, but also has high surprise factor if you can haste it the same turn you play it.
- Steelshaper's Gift is the best non-creature equipment tutor in the game.
- Hammer of Nazahn is expensive but amazing.
- Leonin Arbiter is quite strong in multiplayer.
- Konda's Banner must be the perfect equipment for this list!
