Iroas, God of Victory Discussion

Restoration Angel can save a creature from removal, and interacts well with a few of your other creatures.
Adarkar Valkyrie helps protect your creatures and can potentially steal the creatures that your opponents chump-block with.
A few other cards worth considering are Iroas, God of Victory so that it's easier for your creatures to attack, Boros Charm for protection against wraths, Break Through the Line to make Kaalia hasty and unblockable, and Phyrexian Reclamation to give your deck more resilience against removal.

Hey thanks for the constructive criticism, this list is the product of a week of theory crafting. Everything is a bit jumbled and the curve isn't great. I didn't have time to get a description in yet either, sorry about that. What I want for control here is not a hard lock but something more akin to hate bears and winning through attrition. This deck isn't going to win in the first 6 turns, let's just put that out there. I'm looking at turn 7 or 8 probably, which means I need to disrupt turns 1-6 for other players. That said, I think I'll be removing Iroas, God of Victory for Spirit of the Labyrinth and possibly Argentum Armor for Aura of Silence.
You are probably right about Leonin Shikari but it's new to me so I'm not sure how effective it is. I assumed passing around Swiftfoot Boots, Skullclamp and the swords at instant speed would be worth a slot? If it doesn't work out I may go with Ethersworn Canonist.
I think I have to pass on MLD, my LGS is full of competent players but they aren't degenerates heh. Same reason Blood Moon was passed up here, I can win playing mostly fair but I will still try to find a spot for Static Orb since it's just great with War's Toll and Urabrask the Hidden.
You know of any really good hate cards in red similar to Stranglehold but doesn't so much target the mana base?

Cool deck, I always liked soldiers! I think you should possibly add in Hero of Bladehold to spawn in more soldiers. I also think you should splash some red in this deck to add cards like Akroan Hoplite, Foundry Champion, Assemble the Legion, and Iroas, God of Victory.

looking at this deck and i like few suggestions and things at the same time
- Serious no Blightsteel Colossus? that guy is a perfect theme match for this deck hes a one hit wonder and can't be put into the graveyard and not to mention indestructable.
2.I might advise Akroma's Memorial lets give all the ultimate creatures the same abilites that akroma has.
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is another one missing.
Planar Bridge may be your choice for cheating stuff out plus it fits the bill of flavor.

This looks extremely sweet. Big +1 from me!
A few thoughts on some Equipment that might be worth trying, if you find some of your other cards underperforming ...
- If you want a little more Draw, I love Avarice Amulet. All the other effects are great too, and it can be an amazing political tool as well (e.g., "In response [to some annoying removal] ... I'm going to chat with the other people at the table for a few minutes, and see what they can do for me if I give them the Amulet").
- Prowler's Helm maybe? Unless you have a REALLY bizarre meta, it's great redundancy for Trailblazer's Boots.
- Also, if you end up adding Iroas, God of Victory (as dlamars mentioned), I'd strongly recommend adding Vorrac Battlehorns too ... they synergize hilariously well.

Thank you for giving me the idea to put Jazal Goldmane in my version of this deck. Feel free to find some fun stuff from my version Heroes never die I haven't been quite as cost conscious as you are but I do have some cheap usefull cards that Iroas, God of Victory makes better.
