Scroll Rack Discussion

just a quick few equipment off the top of my head i can think of you might like Konda's Banner just for giving all your cats +2 +2 more on top of the boost from raksha. Sword of Vengeance for more sweet keywords. Masterwork of Ingenuity to copy any other equipments. Darksteel Plate for indestructible. Godsend because that equipment is freaking amazing. Argentum Armor is great even if it costs a bit to get out and equip and Batterskull because obvious reasons. i don't know what your budget would be but you could also throw in Stonehewer Giant for more equipment tutoring. if you can you can spring on some great card advantage in white being Land Tax + Scroll Rack which can come out to paying 1 to draw 3 cards a turn. sweet deck though. get a +1 from me!

Hey man, just touching bases here.
I think that the Paradox engine can be tested in my list directly, however Pact support negates HT, so we'll have to talk about which is preferred, or if it's up to the player.
Also noticed, we need to work in Carpet of Flowers in both our lists. I left it out for local meta reasons, but I think it certainly belongs in the list in high-tiered metas.
Thoughts on Scroll Rack in Leovold? I played it a lot in my Oona storm list to make up for the lack of commander CA, but I have preferred in Leovold to just increase tutor/CA density.
Last thing to talk about. Running Intuition? Might be harder in your list since yours shoots for specific cards more than my list does. But since we're on G with things like Regrowth, etc. I think it's pretty solid.

Thanks for taking a look Daedalus19876 I'll be making a few changes based on your suggestions, first is Mother of Runes is now in the deck, originally I misunderstood what she did but she has now earned a spot.
Also Scroll Rack I didn't really know how to use it properly (I'd always put something on top that I wanted and accidentally tutored and shuffled it away and other various misplays) but after reading through your primer it's an auto-include for the scroll rack + land tax combo.
Most mana doublers I've tried but found they slowed me down in the past, this deck has evolved so much however so maybe Caged Sun might help. Extraplanar Lens in my meta isn't run because it's a huge target (mainly for personal reasons, I'll just say when any of my friends play it I destroyed it so they'd also be down a land and now they seek revenge.) Had to cut it from my colorless wastes deck for that reason lol.
As for the lands I've just been testing I change between 34 to 37 lands all the time since the land base is one of my biggest weakness when deck building.
I cut Haunted Cloak and am thinking about cutting Helm of Kaldra. I only keep the helm for the off chance I have the other two pieces (or Stonehewer Giant since I'll search for both those pieces anyway) and will tutor it for an indestructible 9/9 that can't be Gilded Drake'd or Toxic Deluge'd but on it's own it's kind of a dead card. What do you think?
Duelist's Heritage and Silverblade Paladin would love a spot, I'm just bad at making cuts. I can think of one card I could cut but I don't know which to add both Silverblade Paladin can beat down on his own but if I don't have another creature he's a 2/2 and is more susceptible to removal but can be recurred with both Emeria, The Sky Ruin AND Sun Titan. Duelist's Heritage seems like the stronger of the two can be tutored with Enlightened Tutor and if I understand it correctly I can give an opponents creature double strike if they hit an opponent?? Only down side I can think of is Sword of War and Peace and Etched Champion.
Again thank you for the kind words and suggestions, I previously skimmed through your primer when building this but finally fully read it ;)

cracks knuckles This should be fun! :)
One of the first EDH decks I ever played against was a Kemba voltron deck, and my pet deck has been my Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER* voltron list (which also might give you some ideas). There's a beauty in simplicity inherent in Voltron strategies. With some experience with Voltron, here are my thoughts on your list:
1) Generally speaking, it does work better to whack people with your commander, just to take advantage of that handy commander damage rule. But I understand that your non-reliance on your commander is the unique thing about this deck, so I won't suggest swapping commanders. That being said, I would test a few games with Sram at the helm, because he's one heck of a drug in this kind of deck ;)
2) Your creature base looks fine. The only major omission I see is the lack of Mother of Runes here. Ranger of Eos and Recruiter of the Guard can also be great tutors. And Silverblade Paladin is great for getting in faster damage and giving doubled Swords triggers...
6) With an average CMC of 3.4, I personally would not dare play as low as 34 lands (Maze of Ith doesn't count because it does not produce mana).
7) I would take a look through your equipment and cut the lower-impact ones. In any deck planning to win via combat damage, every single card needs to have a major impact when it hits the board. I've never found Deathrender or Haunted Cloak to do enough to justify their inclusion in my decks.
8) Double strike is your best friend in aggressive decks. I am currently loving Duelist's Heritage (though many of the best options are in boros colors alas).
9) Your primer seems like a good start! :)

Interesting deck list. Have you thought about running Scroll Rack? I'm sure you end up drawing a lot of the big creatures you'd rather have Mayael the Anima pull up. If you have something in hand you want Mayael to pull into you could probably put that creature on top of your deck and probably pull a non-creature card in return with it.
I believe Mirri's Guile is also another interesting card to consider. It let's you know before activating your commander if you have something worth pulling into, and it can help keep you from drawing a valuable creature or let you draw a non-creature card three turns sooner. Not half bad for 1 mana.

How is your land count working out for you? I believe 29 lands is pretty tight when I see your Avg. CMC is 2.49
You use a more balanced aura vs. equipment ratio.
Are you going for the commander damage kill here?I choose to use only a few essential aura's cause many fall of him when he gets nuked, while the equipment remains on the battlefield.

Flamekin Village - Haste for my Master of Cruelties, as well as other attacks. It can be used to make other people's creatures have haste, so it adds another political element to the deck, and a pseudo-Pillow Fort in a similar vein to Duelist's Heritage.
Rogue's Passage - Making a big Hatred or Master of Cruelties attack unblockable is a game ender. Also possible to use as a pseudo-Pillow Fort, you just have to wait until they declare attackers and who they are attacking before using it or you could find yourself on the wrong end of a backstabbing unblockable attack.
