Leonin Elder Discussion

I would remove: Myth Realized-its slow and it really doesn't boost your existing creatures so to make full use you will have to equip to it. If you like the effect Scroll of the Masters is an artifact version that I think works better in this deck, Cathar's Shield-It just doesn't do enough for you, Servo Exhibition-its a one time use and servo's don't fly. I think you might be better off and might want to keep something similar if you can find it in an instant but as a sorcery its just not worth its place,Blade Splicer and Master Splicer-its just a creature. You are really trying to kill with a voltron strategy and you should be able to do that with akiri., Frogmite-just another creature. Granted it comes in for free but its only a 2/2, Leonin Elder-1 life per artifact isn't great. Especially if you are getting lifelink off creatures/equipment. Myr Mindservant I didn't see where you were running top of deck manipulation like Sensei's Divining Top so I dont' think you need it. Thraben Inspector-its a one drop that will get you a card. Not sure its really what you want. If you are looking for a one drop creature that might work well try Mother of Runes.Militant Inquisitor if you get to the point where you want him you've probably already lost the game. The other thing is you can cut down on the equipment but equipment choices are really about personal preference.

One more thing. Please switch out Manalith for Commander's Sphere or Boros Cluestone they tap for the same mana but you can sacrafice them for card draw if you really need it.

Remember its your deck and many of the choices should be based on who you play with.

You need to add more cards that are good in EDH, and add some ramp beyond Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion. My suggestion for cheap ramp includes:

Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, Marble Diamond, Worn Powerstone etc.

Other cards you may want to consider are:

White Sun's Zenith, Hero of Bladehold, Sun Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Mentor of the Meek, True Conviction, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Martial Coup, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Recruiter of the Guard, Heliod, God of the Sun, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirror Entity, Mother of Runes, Emeria Shepherd, Bastion Protector, Oblation, Secure the Wastes, Austere Command, Open the Armory, Decree of Justice, Caged Sun, Obelisk of Urd, Dictate of Heliod, Shared Triumph, Elspeth Tirel, Secluded Steppe, Buried Ruin, Ghost Quarter, Rogue's Passage, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Kor Haven, Divine Sacrament, Bygone Bishop.

I would cut cards from the "Terrible" bracket first. They have no place in most EDH decks.

I feel like this might be able to work as a Tempered Steel deck, with a few Blade Splicer providing some more hitting power, or a Metallic Mimic naming thopter/servo. You need to cut the number of 3 drops mind, as at the moment Dispatch and Galvanic Blast won't protect you very well until those creatures make it out. Court Homunculus, Leonin Elder, Slag Fiend, Ardent Recruit, Thraben Inspector, Hope of Ghirapur, Hangarback Walker, Aether Chaser or similar will help the deck make it past turn 3.5.

I think I would splash white, but this is a really nice way to utilize Aetherflux Reservoir that I've never seen before. Now if only you could play Leonin Elder.

Its hard to say because I don't know what your playgroup uses. That said, I think if I had to choose I'd take out Leonin Elder, because sure he's cheap, but life gain isn't all that great in a format where you start with 40 life and 21 commander damage can end the game for you even if you have 8 billion life. Sure he could offset the life cost of things like arena, but your commander also does that.Same with Filigree Angel, but depending on your playgroup you may want to leave at least one of them in. Beyond that, hard to say really, I'll take a more detailed look later, I'm off to work

I'm a big fan of Grafted Wargear and Cranial Plating in equipment decks. Stoneforge Masterwork and Bone Saw are other options. However you like it, I'd suggest swapping out the 4x Leonin Scimitar for some combination of this. I also like the above suggestion to lean on Leonin Elder's ability and get some Ornithopters in there.
