Prowler's Helm Discussion
1 day ago
Cool deck! I haven’t played with anything from Eldraine so it was weird seeing stuff like Turn into a Pumpkin on here and it being a real card. Anyway, I would suggest more unblockable stuff for Bolas to lunch through and some different mana boosters since he is also expensive to play.
High Tide , Bubbling Muck , or the high risk-high reward Mana Flare (a personal favorite) could be used to your advantage. The former two are obviously one-offs but could be clutch and get you off to a fast start. Mana Flare can have it’s obvious downsides but it’s a cheap way to boost your own. Think about it.
As for the unblockable, I’d recommend Rogue's Passage , Dauthi Embrace , Snake Umbra , Trailblazer's Boots , Whispersilk Cloak , Gift of the Deity or Nemesis Mask (to equip to a different a creature], Prowler's Helm and Hot Soup ! There a bunch a different ways you can go and many of what I suggest you may not go for but they would make Bolas harder to block.
+1 Good Luck!

Gargos, Vicious Watcher (fight club hydra) feels like a perfect fit for the deck.
Hope this helps

It has creatures, but it lacks a bit in equipment. It looks like you're on a budget, so here are some good options. Some equipments with ability soup are Sword of Vengeance , Whispersilk Cloak , Trailblazer's Boots , Prowler's Helm , and Quietus Spike . Some equipment with big boosts are Colossus Hammer , Stoneforge Masterwork , Blackblade Reforged , and Argentum Armor .
Heartseeker is brutal with Syr Gwyn.

Stuff that would give him unblockable like Prowler's Helm , Whispersilk Cloak , and Key to the City I would imagine are good. Then you just need stuff to give him more power and double strike like Blackblade Reforged , Loxodon Warhammer . I think best bet is that it turns into a pseudo Voltron style deck with a lot of black removal/draw spells packed in there.

Since you are trying to keep to a budget I will make sure to only suggest some more budget cards.
Battle Mastery will give your creature double strike, pretty much doubling her damage output and Scourge of the Nobilis will give her lifelink, +2/+2, and an ability to pump mana into her for a big increase in damage.
Sage's Reverie is a card draw aura with also giving a big boost to power to your commander.
Gift of Immortality (is a little more expensive) will bring your commander back after it is killed so you can attach all your auras back on.
Eidolon of Countless Battles is another one that will give you a lot of power for each aura you control while also doubling as another creature.
Felidar Umbra More umbras never hurt since they will help your commander dodge board wipes and targeted removal, also lifelink is very good to have in Voltron decks since you won't always be able to block easily.
Prowler's Helm is an equipment that is good to make your creature pretty much unblock able until you run across a defender themed deck.
Nomad Mythmaker will get you back some enchantments in your graveyard in case they ever do get stuck in there.
Faith Healer if you ever just have nothing to do with your mana then sacrificing your auras for life gain and having them come back with Tiana's ability is a good thing to do to keep you in the game.
Lastly since I can't recommend cards all day I would suggest Totem-Guide Hartebeest as another tutor for aura cards in your deck.

So if draw still feels lacking, what are your thoughts on I have personally had plenty of success with Parting Thoughts and Hunter's Prowess . The latter is a semi-expensive cmc-wise and I already know it isn’t exactly your play-style but I feel like I should suggest it!
Heroic Intervention is a great card but I agree with how you feel about it in this deck. Seems very eh in most scenarios, but I still think the other two— Inspiring Call and Rishkar's Expertise certainly have a place here.
I really really like Collector Ouphe (I just popped one myself!). Adds a nice stax piece to this aggro deck. Also, Shizo is a must-add. Something I would definitely do if I went and bought one. And I am all for keeping Prowler's Helm and Trailblazer's Boots .
I agree with Scheming Symmetry . I need to pick up up one of these!
I’d rank Rite of Passage higher in this particular deck over Evol and Drana. The reasoning is it gives opponents another reason not to block Skullbriar. “Oh he’s just going to get bigger?” And in most cases for me he’s the biggest creature on the entire board so he’s a force to be reckoned with. And if people choose to block him when he has no trample or evasion—he’s at least getting slightly bigger at the same time.
YES—Urborg and Filth. Couldn’t agree more with those.

Golgari loves creatures over artifacts. I’m pushing away from them so Collector Ouphe is always perfect for the board. In saying so, there’s a few cards I outed:
Key to the City is super jank. Lightning Greaves & Whispersilk Cloak don’t help with shroud. Prowler's Helm and Trailblazer's Boots give awesome evasion, but for a heck of a price. I debate on Chariot of Victory .
I think a big step $$$-wise is to pick up Shizo, Death's Storehouse . If fear doesn’t come in handy against a certain opponent, it’s still a untapped land
