Needle Spires Discussion

Hm, I have a few things in mind:Boros Keyrune - very mana intensive since the equips fall off every time it turns back into an artifact. Might not be worth. Alternately, Needle Spires is similar and a land. Could replace a plains or mountain.
Hovermyr - just not sure if it pulls its weight. Seems a little underwhelming for commander but I can see where it would be good when covered in equips.
Hope of Ghirapur - A bit less useful in a multiplayer environment in my opinion. Also, not really improved much by equipping since its main usefulness comes from sacrificing it.
Also, how have Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Darksteel Forge been working for you? A lot of effects that deal with permanents can either bounce, exile, give -X/-X, etc to get around indestructible by the time either one is likely to come out. They are both super fun though, so there's that.
Cutting a few of those should easily make room for a Sunforger package and hopefully improve consistency a bit. Good luck!

I like where you are going with this but it needs some work. First off 30 lands is a crazy amount even for your curve. You could probably be OK with 24 maybe 25 max. Might want to look into some of the dual lands like Inspiring Vantage or Needle Spires to help with your mana fixing. Also, I see you are running Avacynian Missionaries Flip which is a good card if you are running equipment cards like Cathar's Shield, Bone Saw, Neglected Heirloom Flip or Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip but otherwise it is a lackluster card on its own. You have a lot of creatures at 4 converted mana cost you may want to look at cutting 1 or 2 of them and throwing in some 3-drop spells. I would suggest Thalia, Heretic Cathar as her ability causes your opponent's creatures to enter tapped and buy you those early-game turns that you will desperately need to bring out your big guys. Other than that pretty solid deck. White has some good removal too in Declaration in Stone and Immolating Glare. Cheers mate!

Personally I'd throw in a couple manlands. You're running enough ramp that a tap land on turn 3-4 plus shouldn't really hurt, it allows you to actually play magic when you don't have the combo, and you can pressure decks like control and tron that have a hard time dealing with non-cast threats that dodge sorcery speed removal. Manlands would actually address all your problems, since it would be a secondary win condition, avoid discard, let you do something with mana, and avoid chalice.
P.S. in your colors the manlands are Celestial Colonnade, Raging Ravine, Stirring Wildwood, Wandering Fumarole, Needle Spires, Lumbering Falls, Faerie Conclave, Ghitu Encampment, Treetop Village, and Forbidding Watchtower.

My last two booster boxes were pretty disappointing. My oath of the Gatewatch box was a Chandra, Flamecaller, Sphinx of the Final Word, and a Mirrorpool. Besides that all the Rares were essentially bulk, with the only one worth mentioning being a foil Needle Spires.
My more recent aether revolt box was a Herald of Anguish, Planar Bridge which I already had two of from prereleases and do I was a bit disappointed with that, followed by a Lightning Runner, and that other bulk red mythic, whatever it's called.
For Rares I had a Baral, Chief of Compliance, Aethersphere Harvester and a Oath of Ajani. 2 Fatal Push's and a Herald of Anguish in summary was the highlight of the box. The rest of the box isn't even worth any mention.
So unless you want plenty for standard, (I advise against it, it's tempting for the masterpieces I know, but most times it doesn't seem worth it), go with the earlier suggested conspiracy 2 box if you mostly play Edh.

Consulate Dreadnought and Ornithopter also seem a bit out of place as they synergize with very few cards and do very little for the aggro plan. I'd play the 4th Bone Saw and in my testing I really liked 2x Pia Nalaar - especially in the mid game she is pretty good at converting the unused equipments laying around into reach. You might also try Servo Exhibition, which is great with Weapons Trainer
I'd also play a bit removal in the main, because even if you're trying to be the most aggressive deck, sometimes the opponent can stabilize with blockers - especially the GB deck if they curve Winding Constrictor into Walking Ballista or Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Besides the Declaration in Stone you play in the side Ride Down and Outnumber (although it's more inconsistent) are also options.

x2 Heart of Kiran for that flying stress
2x Needle Spires can become a creature
If you got money get Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
