PookandPie on Nazahn Deck

I'm not going to inundate you with a list of all tutors, I'm just going to pick what I feel are the best ones in green and white:

Creature tutors in no particular order:

Green Sun's Zenith is perfect because it's any green creature in your deck for only one extra mana. This can be Mirri, Qasali Pridemage, or even just a Dryad Arbor to ramp if you need it.

Eladamri's Call. Instant speed, unconditional (not restricted to finding a green creature, I mean), and puts it straight into hand. Very solid.

Worldly Tutor. Card disadvantage, but it finds any color of creature for only one mana at instant speed.

Chord of Calling is one of the best tutors green has to offer. Instant speed surprise factor is never to be discounted considering it's any creature in your library at any time as if they all had flash (assuming you have the mana/creatures to cast it). Instant speed Alms Collector when someone casts a Prime Speaker Zegana or something is huge.

Birthing Pod is a great, consistent way to find your way up through the ranks to specific cards. Cards like Solemn Simulacrum are great to sacrifice, while cards like Reveillark, Karmic Guide, etc., can turn the sacrifice into a positive card advantage (rather than neutral) every time.

Survival of the Fittest is expensive for a reason. Easily one of the most broken tutor enablers in the format, especially in white/black when you can discard a high cost creature you can't cast yet, go get Karmic Guide/Reveillark or really any recursive tool. Fauna Shaman is the poor man's version and still works really well.

Pattern of Rebirth and Defense of the Heart. Both of these are incredible if triggered.

Natural Order is probably not the best for your build (tossing a Llanowar Elves for a Craterhoof Behemoth is incredible for 4 mana), but it's an option you should be aware of with other deck builds.

Recruiter of the Guard finds 10 out of 26 creatures in your list. Whether that's worth it or not is up to you.

Equipment tutors:

Steelshaper's Gift, Stoneforge Mystic, Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory. I find these to be the best of them, though Relic Seeker is probably the cheapest one you're not currently running. Stonehewer Giant is repeatable, which may be something you'll like (I dropped Taj-Nar Swordsmith but kept Stonehewer in my Kemba deck because one is a heavily-mana intensive ability but is also a one-shot effect).

Taj-Nar Swordsmith will also help get value out of your equipment. Relic Seeker is another option, but I don't like its conditions much. Quest for the Holy Relic can be decent too. I would definitely add in your Nahiri.

I know you want to avoid Sram, Senior Edificer as a commander, but if you end up with a lot of equipment there's no reason to not have him in the 99. Bring in that Puresteel as well. Card draw is king and you will need it in white.

Hallowed Moonlight is one of my favourite cantrips, but my meta plays a lot of Tooth and Nail. Though I've never been in a game where someone wasn't trying to cheat a creature into play.

I've playtested against this deck probably 5 times now, and maybe it's just cause of the decks I play being creature heavy.. but with an average of one or two creatures on the field, I feel like this deck needs some sort of protection from decks like those. I don't know much about artifact decks at all, but you might need something like Day of Judgment. That might be a bad suggestion specifically, but I will give more feedback when I face it more. Also, side note, this deck performs absolutely best with Etched Champion and Puresteel Paladin on the field. to the point that they basically are the meat of this deck and need other cards to accent them specifically. The card draw mechanic might not be ideal to have in here. But for certain so far, Relic Seeker is rubbish.

@Mike94 Thx a lot ! I looked at all possible extentions for good soldier cards, but I forgot that conspiracy cards was available !!Recruiter of the Guard will be in asap.

Stoneforge Mystic : The "problem" with this card is the fact that she is not a soldier and will not be buffed after beeing played. Most of the time my Relic Seeker can be a thread in late game (Coat of Arms Door of Destinies Daru Warchief ... )

And for the last card (Knight-Captain of Eos), I m waiting for the release of the new commanders 2017 set to add some defensive cards like Teferi's Protection .

If you are playing soldier tribal I would recommend Recruiter of the Guard. I also would swap out Relic Seeker for Stoneforge Mystic but I see you are running the promo version so maybe he is just there for the flavor (witch is nice!)

Last, I think you lack a bit of control during the combat-phase. Since you have tokens to spare maybe Knight-Captain of Eos could be something for you to look at.

Nice deck! I love mono-white +1

Stoneforge Mystic is the replacement you need for Relic Seeker

Also Hanweir Garrison won't make the tokens if he is brought in with alesha, only when he is physically declared an attacker

Hi! First of all cool deck +1 I also love to play with equipments so allow me to give some advise on the matter.

You seem to have a solid game-plan already and I don't know if you are willing to pay a little more for better alternatives but I would play:

I would also try to play around 35 lands, 31 is in my opinion not enough.

Those are some of my suggestions. I to play an equipment oriented deck, feel free to take a look for inspiration Odric's Holy War

I'm not sure it's worth it to run Sunforger with so few Instants in the deck. Also, you might want to trade a Mountain or two for Swamp/Plains. Impact Tremors would be a nice addition with your strategy, and perhaps Mardu Ascendancy. You can definitely do without Evangel of Heliod and perhaps Relic Seeker. Considering your lack of Shocklands, Cyclelands, or Tangolands, you probably shouldn't run Duergar Hedge-Mage since he won't be all that reliable.

Some low-budget cards that could go in their places... Tormenting Voice, Solemn Simulacrum, Smuggler's Copter (great looter for a sac strategy), Wear / Tear

Hope this is helpful!
