Found and added Heavy Arbalest as an alternate direct damage source. Swapped Elvish Visionary for Llanowar Visionary. Swapped Ground Seal for Grafdigger's Cage (Gishath and Meren are in my meta).

just look at all equipment and pick out the ones with downsides. your statement about doom blade is painfully obvious, like saying water is wet. but you never stated your deck couldn't have black.

either way, why pay to cast Heavy Arbalest and Magnetic Theft just to keep something tapped down, when you can pay to just destroy it outright?

I am making a Magnetic Theft deck and want to know every equipment in the game that has a downside for the equipped creature. I am thinking along the likes of Grafted Exoskeleton and Heavy Arbalest

If this is mostly casual, some stuff like Hunt the Hunter/Setessan Tactics/Ulvenwald Tracker might perform well, Hankyu,Heavy Arbalest, Livewire Lash, Mortarpod, Shuriken, Surestrike Trident and Wolfhunter's Quiver all exist, as does Brass Squire, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon Flail, Gorgon's Head,Vial of Poison which I know has been used for Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile edh.

If this is a more competitive legacy meta, Animate Land for land destruction might be an option as a dumb one-off deck.

All told, good luck and have fun testing! If you're looking for something particular just say.

Epri: Adding Heavy Arbalest would make for a cool 3-card combo but I'm not sure what cards I could take out to add this. Good for if you want that win-con, but I think adding this would end up taking out another of my win-cons.

If you want another win con... Maybe try Heavy Arbalest for infinite damage combo.
