Helm of the Gods Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions cleverpun0! Sigarda's Aid I will be on the lookout for for sure! I'm weary of too many auras because when Eight-and-a-Half-Tails gives itself protection from white they go into graveyard. I do have Helm of the Gods and think it may have to make its way onto this deck.

Some Voltron staples that are relatively cheap: Bastion Protector, Divine Reckoning, Silverblade Paladin, and Shielded by Faith. Retether and Open the Vaults can also be good if there's not too much graveyard hate in your meta. Eidolon of Countless Battles and Helm of the Gods would also be good, since you have so many enchantments.
I used to have Holy Mantle in my voltron deck, but every time I wanted to cast it, the mana cost felt too awkwardly high. I eventually ended up replacing it for Spirit Mantle, as many are wont to do. Unquestioned Authority can also be good, since it doesn't provide any buffs but does replace itself. Since you have a lot of of equipment with high equip costs, Sigarda's Aid may also help. In my Voltron deck, I find that playing and then equipping Equipment can get a little mana-intensive.
Scytheclaw is also a fun budget card, especially with protection.
Lightmine field is an interesting card that I didn't know about. It may actually fit well in some of my decks.

I tinkered with this a bit- I play in more comptetitive meta, and there is some pretty interesting stuff that could be done to make this work, but most would leave it barely recognisable. A 1/2/3 cost Elves of Deep Shadow/Tukatongue Thallid/Blood Funnel/Nighthowler/Strength from the Fallen/Blisterpod/Renowned Weaver/Rancor type thing might work, as might a more focused Ethereal Armor/heroic setup or Ordeal of Erebos/Oblivion Crown/Ravenous Rats/Delirium Skeins beatdown/discard setup.Bad Moon/Helm of the Gods enchantment black might be playable.Spike Jester/Mardu Scout/Hellspark Elemental can make a fun budget rakdos core and deal a surprising amount of damage.The main thing to remember is to test to see if it behaves the way you think it should when facing other decks so that it continues to perform well.
in terms of land Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds is a fix for three colour thats pretty cheap, or keep the splashes lategame then run Unknown Shores/Aether Hub/Crumbling Vestige/Shimmering Grotto as appropriate to provide for some more versatile lategame. Mono black is super playable (probs my favourite thing at the moment, and I made this Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox to help people find cards for their decks. GLHF!

OOOOKay suggestions incoming. I like the list, however I am not sure how well Zur will end up being protected so that is where a lot of these suggestions come from. Considering he has to attack to get the trigger, you want him to not be blocked/killed in combat because that could set you back a few turns. Other than that the suggestions are things that allow for interaction with the opposing players to help keep the match a little in check or answer the things that you might not have answers to in your enchantments. Counterspell because well, blue. Illusionist's bracers and copy ability cards because then you can get 2 enchantments for the price of one. Other good stuff.

Things I might consider cutting: The odds and ends sphinx's, they seem to just be beats win cons which isnt really the idea? Ranger of Eos, value of that compared to enchanted evening is a glaring difference. I love the mind drinker! Hes dope and will wreck your current playgroup (myself included) . The soul sisters lifegain is nice but I might rather have Oloro or something like that. Sun titan is a beast in this deck for any destroyed enchantments! Same with Hanna. Not sure about the Curse cards.... I apologize for the duplicates.... I just made a list of things I would want to have in the deck and typed it all out here before double checking with your list...

I've played Iroas, God of Victory several times over the past year. What I like about this God is that it completely changes your attack step - you have no fear of losing your creature to a larger blocker, and often the opponent doesn't have enough blockers to stop your attacks. This either leads to a purely aggressive strategy with no defense, or a calculated attack of a small number of potent creatures that have attacking-related abilities. I noticed you were slightly leaning towards the second style with Rogue's Gloves and Helm of the Gods.
I don't think Riot Control, Titan of Eternal Fire, Armory of Iroas, Prophetic Prism, and Springleaf Drum do enough for you in this list. I also doubt you have enough planeswalkers to support Deploy the Gatewatch.
I agree that more draw is needed - Red keeps getting more varieties of draw, plus artifacts are always an option. I like Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, and Commander's Sphere as mana development that doubles as draw when needed.
Seeing Dictate of Heliod in your list brought a smile to my face. How that card comes out at just the right moment...
Perhaps Berserkers' Onslaught can help? It can be bought in many cards stores for a dollar and often leads to large amounts of damage. However there are many other good strategies for an indestructible enchantment creature that allows you to attack a player without fear of that player blocking...
