Lightning Greaves,Spellbook,Whispersilk Cloak,Masterwork of Ingenuity,Caged Sun are also a few reasonable priced artifacts I run. I also run Doubling Cube.

I would say you need more ways to generate card advantage and more ways to get more mana.

For mana, we have Marble Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Land Tax, Endless Horizons, Knight of the White Orchid, Gift of Estates, Solemn Simulacrum, Weathered Wayfarer, Karoo, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

For card advantage we have multiple ways to break that up, so starting with cards that remove multiple things.Angel of the Dire Hour, Fumigate, Comeuppance, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Mass Calcify and Phyrexian Rebirth (if you run more mana rocks), Grasp of Fate, Return to Dust, and other board wipes of varying quality.

Now cards that give you other cards for free.Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, a lot of the ramp cards listed above, Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Stone Haven Outfitter, Relic Seeker, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Steelshaper Apprentice, Oreskos Explorer and Emeria Shepherd.

Here are some cards that have particular synergy with your deck, I've already listed some like Nahiri above.Masterwork of Ingenuity, Konda's Banner, Hero's Blade, Mask of Avacyn, Bonesplitter, Intangible Virtue.

Cards in particular I would cut from the deck would be:Blinding Powder, Ethereal Haze, Altar of the Brood, Darksteel Forge (when will you ever get to 9 mana?), Torpor Orb, Blight Sickle, Authority of the Consuls, Orbs of Warding, Quietus Spike (it's costly, makes you a target, and doesn't help with the Voltron plan), Ulamog (not enough mill decks in the world).

That's my $0.02.

I'd suggest Clone, Phyrexian Metamorph, Masterwork of Ingenuity and Evil Twin. Nice deck +1. Could you please review and upvote my Brago, King Eternal?

I spent 3 days trying to make a budget version of the Sram deck, and here you come beating me to it xD

Thx a lot for the list i will take some of them into consideration :)

btw i think Masterwork of Ingenuity is a must have, it's cheap and it can be a powerhouse

Yeah without all the expensive mana positive rocks its like that. Its definitely worth a spot either way. Im curious why no Masterwork of Ingenuity. Double Skullclamp, Sword of Fire and Ice, or Batterskull is flat out ridiculous.

just a quick few equipment off the top of my head i can think of you might like Konda's Banner just for giving all your cats +2 +2 more on top of the boost from raksha. Sword of Vengeance for more sweet keywords. Masterwork of Ingenuity to copy any other equipments. Darksteel Plate for indestructible. Godsend because that equipment is freaking amazing. Argentum Armor is great even if it costs a bit to get out and equip and Batterskull because obvious reasons. i don't know what your budget would be but you could also throw in Stonehewer Giant for more equipment tutoring. if you can you can spring on some great card advantage in white being Land Tax + Scroll Rack which can come out to paying 1 to draw 3 cards a turn. sweet deck though. get a +1 from me!

Snacrifice: Thanks for the comment!

I used to play Hero's Blade, but I found that the problem was the prohibitively high equip cost. I know it auto-equips to Avacyn, but if I don't already have it down when Avacyn enters it's just terrible (6 mana for a mere 3/2 boost). It was just too inconsistent, and I cut it because I needed the slots.

O-Naginata has proven itself to be one of the strongest cards in the deck, to be honest. I agree that there are objectively stronger equipment (like Loxodon Warhammer) but the thing that elevates O-Naginata is its ridiculously low cast and equip cost.

Masterwork of Ingenuity is something I also used to play, but it got cut when I realized there were actually very few equipment I wanted to copy (since many of the good ones grant keywords, or are legendary, or are redundant in multiples). I just got sick of drawing it without any good targets so I cut it - consistency is king. Still, though, I'll reconsider adding it, thanks!

I've never tried Semblance Anvil here, but I'm worried it's too vulnerable to removal. While I loved it in a Standard Myr deck back in the day, in EDH it's far too easy to get 2-for-1'd if it's removed, leaving it as serious card disadvantage. Also, I don't have enough of any one permanent to make it worth it IMO.

Prototype Portal is an awesome card, I just don't want to spend 8 mana for my first copy of an equipment that's already in my hand. It also has the same problem as Semblance Anvil in that removal leaves me with serious card disadvantage.

Thanks for your comment! I appreciate your help a lot :) Also, you said on the "Advertise your deck" page that you'd +1'd the deck, but I think the website didn't register it - mind clicking it again? :)

I'm surprised you don't have Hero's Blade since it equips for free and makes Avacyn just a bit bigger-a 9/7 once flipped for free once played is neat, and you have a bunch of legendaries for it to equip to as well(I'd sub out O-Naginata TBH- you lose the trample, but Avacyn already has evasion.

Masterwork of Ingenuity, Semblance Anvil, and Prototype Portal would be really good too, since they'd let you double up(or in Prototype portal's case, as many as you can get out) on whatever equips you really liked. Skyblinder Staff is a bit doofy but is surprisingly good evasion for a flying commander, especially one with damage.
