Imprint When Prototype Portal enters the battlefield, you may exile an artifact card from your hand.
X, Tap: Put a token that's a copy of the exiled card onto the battlefield. X is the converted mana cost of that card.

The cards you really want to draw every game needs to have 3-4 X of in the deck. Having only 1 x of means you can play 4-5 games without drawing it once.
Cards I would consider taking out of the deck;

Sorry, got Prototype Portal confused. Still using the artifact lands though.

Looks awesome! Thanks for making this deck, I think I'll keep mine as mono blue, so people can see the difference. Also I'm stealing your idea for Prototype Portal and Artifact Lands.

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.

Mr.Beaver I have previously considered Kami of the Crescent Moon, it's mainly just a matter of what to switch out for him. Any suggestions? Prototype Portal seems okay, idk how I feel about it in this deck.
Thanks for the suggestions and upvote!

Ok, so modern. Mechanized Production is a hilarious choice for this deck, and a fabulous win condition. Rather than basing it on 'servo' tokens, why not 'clue' or 'golem' tokens? It would provide more card draw and the spells to achieve this have a lower cost, allowing for more early game interaction. Golem Foundry/Blade Splicer, Genesis Chamber/Master's Call Hangarback Walker and the Thopter Foundry/Sword of the Meek combo, Ongoing Investigation/Trail of Evidence/Ulvenwald Mysteries etc.Other options are practical artifacts to copy that take the game over- Isochron Scepter is an interesting one, making low cost spells in your hand all repeatable over time, Orbs of Warding providing an ever growing pillow fort, or even just the efficient Solemn Simulacrum for extra lands, blockers and cards.
Personally, I'd reccomend fog effects and populate effects Druid's Deliverance/Rootborn Defenses, Sundering Growth Wayfaring Temple/ Growing Ranks provide options, and a larger token creature like those from Voice of Resurgence could provide a competing board presence, with Beast Within providing a dual backup tokens and hard removal. If prepared to play a longer game Darksteel Axe would dodge everything bar Anguished Unmaking although the enchantment would likely still be hit. Mirrorworks or Prototype Portal are also interesting.
Good luck making it tick.
