What is the point of Runechanter's Pike?

I understand what you're trying to do but the deck isn't very efficient at the moment.

You have almost the same amount of equipment as you do creatures. This is bad because it will lead to you drawing equipment and have no creature to equip it too.

Fog Bank is terrible because it dies to every burn and removal spell and does very little. In the same sense so are the other creatures Invisible Stalker. Student of Warfare is the worst imo. You spend 3 mana for a 3/3 and it dies to Lightning Bolt. Even if you play it on T1 and pump it twice on T2, it will most likely die. All the other creature decks will outclass it or remove it. You'll loose a ton of tempo.Wall of Omens is better over fogbank, because it survives bolt and replaces itself.Geist of Saint Traft is also a great creature to play as a 1-2 of.

I feel you should remove a lot of equipment and replace them with cantrips such as serum visions and more control elements. More remand & paths or similar.

By doing this you allow your deck to control the board more and sift through your deck. Play 1-2 copies of Runechanter's Pike and all of a sudden you have a 2 turn clock on your invisible stalker.If you're going this route, you could splash black and add some discard or some spot removal. This also gives you the option of playing a Nephalia Drownyard as a second win con if they removal all your creatures.

Angels Grace & Dawn charm should go too. Both kinda do the same thing. But the problem with these types of cards, is that if you're losing and you cast this. You basically stop yourself from losing but your are STILL losing. The board state hasn't changed in your favor and most likely you will just loose anyway next turn. It can pull a sneaky win maybe once if your opp alpha swings and leaves no blockers but since you're focusing on unblockable creatures, it kinda doesn't work well at all.

to cmsrDPM I'm considering Aqueous Form because it makes for a boost but I actually prefer to make yasova available to block but boost her with things like Runechanter's Pike or Roar of Challenge so I can knock out hexproof creatures. Unblockable would be nice but it works against the strategy a bit and I would want to incorporate red more if I did. Phyrexian Altar would actually be very nice for the devotion mana since this is a relatively low cost deck. Perilous Forays is a bit high CMC or I would take that as well. Thank you for the input though I will look into the altar

Runechanter's Pike to represent Pearl's spear. Plus, as of recently, Bismuth temporarily upgraded Pearl's spear into a trident/pike.

Runechanter's Pike would probably work well.

Correct me if im wrong, but you cant enchant Progenitus with Runechanter's Pike because it has protection from everything, including artifacts?

how about Flayer Husk instead of Sickleslicer? Its alot cheaper and you really only care for the germ token.

I would go up to 4 Cloudform, the hexproof is very important for Polymorph. Maybe go down 1 Runechanter's Pike as its only good late game anyways?

oh and yes Vedalken Shackles that Ninjay suggested sounds amazing! Maybe one main and 1-2 side?
