Odric, Lunarch Marshal
Legendary Creature — Human Soldier
At the beginning of each combat, creatures you control gain first strike until end of turn if a creature you control has first strike. The same is true for flying, deathtouch, double strike, haste, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, menace, reach, skulk, trample, and vigilance.

Odric, Lunarch Marshal Discussion

Hey man, here are my thoughts
First, although I know your manabase isn't finished, I'd recommend running at 37 lands total.
Second, it's important to consider which equipment are powerful with this strategy, especially with Mirri. You'll likely need ways to keep her from dying. Since she has first strike, giving her deathtouch in addition will make it such that she will always kill the opposing creature before it deals damage, making her almost invincible in combat. You've already mentioned Quietus Spike, but other must-includes for this deck (imo) are Gorgon's Head, Gorgon Flail, and Basilisk Collar. You may also want to have ways to keep Mirri from dying to board wipes and removal. Darksteel Plate and Shield of Kaldra are both about 5 bucks, but they're pretty good. Cards that prevent targeting can be good, but hexproof is preferable to shroud. However, some shroud giving cards, such as Lightning Greaves and General's Kabuto. Mask of Avacyn gives Hexproof, but it's not a Great equipment.
Third, let's consider the equipment you're including. You want most of them to be strong enough to make a single creature into a threat on its own. You've already included cards like Argentum Armor, but frankly you don't really have enough equipment. I'm gonna list a bunch of equipment in various categories here that are worth considering (Sorry if some of this is already in your deck).
Fourth, let's look at your creatures. In commander, lower-impact things tend to be outclassed quickly. As such, you generally want your creatures to either be significant threats or utility. Some creatures that I feel are worth cutting are:
Jareth, Leonine Titan (Not a particularly good card. He's only got a good size when blocking)
Leonin Relic-Warder (He's likely to die over the course of the game. Long-lasting removal is better)
Oreskos Explorer (You're in green, so your ramp spells are likely to be land-focused)
Phantom Nishoba (You'll probably want something stronger for you 7 mana. It's basically a 7-mana 7/7 with lifelink/trample and a downside.)
Qasali Ambusher (This creature just isn't impactful on its own)
Sunspear Shikari (This one is also low impact. I wouldn't play a 2-mana 2/2 with both of those abilities natively in commander, and this card is worse than that.)
Don't get too attached to the cat theme. Have it be something you can take advantage of, but don't put in a bad card just because it's a cat. Additionally, don't be averse to putting in noff-type creatures when doing so improves your deck.
Let's look at some creatures that might improve your deck.
Eight-and-a-Half-Tails (Can help get your other creatures through for damage or protect them from removal. A tricky one to play with, but with high upside)
Sram, Senior Edificer (Card draw is A1 in commander, and this guy gets it for you while also carrying equipment)
Odric, Lunarch Marshal (Makes one threat into a whole team of them)
Leonin Warleader (Makes more vessels for the equipment, which have lifelink and benefit from tribal synergies)
Taj-Nar Swordsmith (Gets you what you need when you need it. Make sure you know what you're looking for though!)
Grand Abolisher (Gives you a lot more control over combat on your turn)
Leonin Abunas (Protects your equipment. May be unecessary, but worth considering)
Indomitable Archangel (As above, but it also has flying, which makes it even better.)
Brass Squire (Sneakily fantastic. Avoids the equip cost while also letting you move an equipment at instant speed)
Auriok Windwalker (As above, but it also has flying, which...huh, deja vu)
Mother of Runes (Good for defending from removal or getting a creature through combat)
Armory Automaton (Note: this can take your opponents' equipment as well. They can re-equip it, but not until they get back to their own turn.)
Alms Collector (This is a good cat. Worth including on its own merits. Takes stuff away from the blue player.)
Stone Haven Outfitter (Insurance for a board wipe. Your deck is weak to them, so keep an eye out for ways to protect your team.)
Mentor of the Meek (More card draw since most of your creatures are cheap)
Adorned Pouncer (Not sure about this one, but it has double strike and can come back from the dead, so that's something)
Mirran Crusader (This guy sees modern and legacy play for a reason. He hits hard and doesn't die easy)
Silverblade Paladin (The ability to give another creature double strike is fantastic.)
Steelshaper Apprentice (Weird card, but lets you get what you need.)
Emeria Shepherd (Another way to rebuild after a wipe. Consider holding this in hand w/ a few lands rather than playing it out.)
Jhoira's Familiar (Makes equipment and legendary creatures cheaper and has flying.)

Dunmaglass... I have found that besides the obvious equipment that can make him indestructible, Bastion Protector can be a great card to have in play. This will give Odric, Lunarch Marshal indestructible, which will then give all your creatures indestructible. Also, keep in mind that equipping any of the artifacts that we have that give +x/+x will make Odric Lightning Bolt proof. He is also not super expensive, so often you can bring him back out next turn. In my games, my strategy is to build a board state that does not appear too threatening, but can get devastating really fast with Odric in play, and maybe adding a low cost card with a ability. Often taking your entire board and adding flying and double strike and then Odric can wipe out an individual player in mid game. You could be hitting for 20-30 damage in one attack.

I suggest you put Sram, Senior Edificer since your commander plays around Aura and Equipment. You can also put some Equipment cards that'll work with Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Concerted Effort. There are still a lot of useful cards like Thalia, Heretic Cathar that'll work well with your deck.

Or in a slight twist - Odric, Lunarch Marshal

Love it, I'd definitely add more threat cards like Heroes' Podium and up the count of threatening legendary creatures like Evra, Halcyon Witness, Medomai the Ageless or Jazal Goldmane who are especially good with flash cause then people can't see them coming
Also definitely add Honor-Worn Shaku
Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Lena, Selfless Champion, Linvala, the Preserver, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker (really nice with flash), Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Yosei, the Morning Star

Hello there TheDwarvenAxe! Thank you, and I'd be happy to answer your questions.
1 - There are a handful of ways. Akroma's Memorial and Concordant Crossroads can grant the board haste, but neither of them are especially budget. The best method for this deck might be to include Odric, Lunarch Marshal, and equipment like Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots
2 - I would not recommend this deck for beginners. It is premised on the idea of frequently tutoring, and doing so for specific subsets of cards, and it takes a strong awareness of the deck and strategies to not take forever doing this. That said, it's so flexible in theme that I think tokens or enchantress can be pivoted into, acknowledging that the deck is okay at getting enchantment creatures but less good at getting regular ole enchantments.
3 - Elvish Rejuvenator is another great mana-fetching elf; Jadelight Ranger is also some nice possible land-secure, and should be cheaper once it rotates; Whiptongue Hydra is a good toolbox card if you don't emphasize fliers too much.
