Kitesail Apprentice Discussion

I'd encourage you to consider making this a more midrange-y deck, trying to outlast aggro with a sideboard to withstand control. I organized my suggestions by matchup so that you can decide what might fit best in the meta you're up against.
Whirza: Only Disenchant can hope to save you.
Creature-Based (humans, hardened scales, etc.): Godsend is a massive rattlesnake, Sword of Fire and Ice can kill a surprising amount of things, Novice Knight can eat a surprising amount of things, Leonin Den-Guard can block SO many things, and Kitesail Apprentice can get above most decks in modern. Worth noting that Stone Haven Outfitter can make trading just awful for your opponents. Path to Exile is kind of a necessity as well.
Removal-based (the rock, azorius control, etc.): Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are decent protection, and Stone Haven Outfitter to make opponents hesitant to kill and to pump everyone, thereby forcing the opponent to bite the bullet, kill your fellas, and lose the card advantage.
Tron: Hedron Blade . No, I am not joking. Find your least relevant creature, trade it for the opponent's Wurmcoil or huge Eldrazi or etc. Definitely not ideal but tron is a tough matchup, especially in no-land-destruction white. Path to Exile is also really good in these matchcups.
You by no means want to include all of these, I understand that under half of these are likely to be relevant. But find the ones that are, and seriously consider incorporating them.

A set of Mutavault looks great here:
- Increases threat density while only taking up land slots.
- They get pumped by Armament Master.
- They're colourless bodies for Ghostfire Blade.
You have plenty of basics. A set of colourless lands won't cause much harm. Going up to 22 lands would be ideal.
Shuko seems crazy efficient for this deck. It allows any of your Kor's equipped abilities to be active for no additional costs, and can be freely reequipped as needed.
While he's a clunky 4-drop that doesn't aid with the Equipment plan, I feel it's worth mentioning Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants. Your deck's low cost creatures gives his -2 ability plenty of targets to choose from for reestablishing a threat on the table.
Probably not terrible as a 2-of if you're ever looking for late game top-end against the slower decks.

First thing, I think you mean this to be a Modern deck, but on top it says Standard. Also, this looks like a cool list, I also have a Mono-White Equipment deck in this link, in case you want to take a look.
The first question that comes to mind is, how is it even possible to have over 100 power Kitesail Apprentice in turn 4?! I mean, it looks like a super cool thing to do, but I was running some numbers and the hightest I could get to was 70, and that's stretching it quite a lot, so I must be missing something.
And now, for real comments on the deck, I think that having both Puresteel Paladin and Auriok Steelshaper is a bit redundant for the Equip costs, I thing I would reduce the latter and include some stuff like Sram, Senior Edificer or even Sigarda's Aid, which might not even be necessary with the Puresteel for the Equipping, but it gives flash to Equipments, and also gives a pretty explosive turn 2, with the propper hand if you don't have the Puresteel or 0 drop equipments. You go turn 1 Kor Duelist, and then turn 2 Sigarda's Aid into Bonesplitter or Darksteel Axe and you swing for 12 points of damage!

Thanks a lot for your comment, it sure is a lot of help! I was trying to stay away of the more combo version of the deck, mainly because I think I like something like this more, but you do bring up a very good point. Trying to increase use of the Sram, Senior Edificer and Puresteel Paladin abilities to draw more cards seems pretty good. In that sense Glint Hawk seems definitely better than Kitesail Apprentice, in that is always a 2/2 flyer, and can bounce some equipment to draw more.
Also this days I was thinking of splashing some other colours for things like Goblin Gaveleer, so I think I'll try to build in that direction for sure. Also, I think some more equipment would definitely be better, now that you mention it.
Again, thanks a lot for your comment! You did bring up some good points, it's been really helpful! Finally, I took a look on your Cheap & Cherio list and it seems pretty cool. I'll keep it in mind for possible future brewing! :D
