Rhadamanthus on Activating abilities in between the ...

Yes, that works.

If any creatures with first strike or double strike are involved in combat then the combat phase has two damage steps instead of just one. First strike damage and the first part of double strike damage are dealt in the first damage step, and regular damage and the second part of double strike damage are dealt in the second damage step. After damage is dealt in the first step, players get a chance to make responses before the second damage step begins.

In your example, Balan, Wandering Knight deals combat damage to a player in the first damage step, so Bloodforged Battle-Axe makes a token copy of itself. Before the second damage step starts, you can either use Balan's last ability to attach the token Axe to himself or get help from Sigarda's Aid, Leonin Shikari, etc. to attach it to something else.

So I actually seen this combo on you tube about a strange card interaction where Balan, Wandering Knight and Bloodforged Battle-Axe where if you hit them with the first strike, you can activate balan to attach the new battle-axe before the second attack and get that effect added in. Didn't know you could do something like that. I wonder how Sigarda's Aid and double strike, or with Leonin Shikari. I guess this boils down to, can you really do stuff between first strike damage and regular damage with double strike and one of these abilities with the axe

have you considered Farseek over Rampant Growth ? it lets you fetch a dual land.

Keeper of Fables seems like it should be right at home in your deck.

overall, a solid deck, lots of enchantment / artifact removal, which tends to be a weak point for alot of decks.

other odd suggestions:

Temur Sabertooth , Fleetfoot Panther , and/or Whitemane Lion are on-theme creatures that can save key parts of your deck's strategy.

if you're finding yourself with alot of equipment, Leonin Shikari + Lightning Greaves is a solid combo as well. Leonin Den-Guard , Skyhunter Cub and Sunspear Shikari work well with this angle also.

I was thinking of building a gwyn deck as well. Here are some cards I think could be cool to run in this deck. Obviously a lot of options.






Required are Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Surestrike Trident . Then you can just go down the line of creatures attaching all of your power increasing equipment and tapping them for tons of damage. If you have Leonin Shikari and Brave the Sands out, then you can all out attack and then do the tapping out on the endstep before your turn. If you don't have Surestrike Trident but instead have Heartseeker then you can just kill a creature for each one you control.
