Shield of Kaldra Discussion

Inquisitor's Flail is a good idea. I think I'd run Fireshrieker first but it's possible that both should be in here. I've thought about Conqueror's Flail to keep people from messing with me when I'm equipping and swinging, but it feels so lame with only colorless permanents.

Not sure what the best cuts are. Loxodon Warhammer is expensive to equip, but trample is good and life gain is important when I don't have much to defend myself from the backswing (which is almost always). Sword of Light and Shadow often doesn't have targets in my graveyard. Shield of the Avatar probably doesn't do much, but I mainly put it in because I wanted to be able to equip my thopter with shields, so it probably stays until I pick up an Accorder's Shield or maybe a Shield of Kaldra.

Since you want to go for an equipment type strategy here are most of the really good equipments/equip matters cards you could use: Godsend Stoneforge Mystic Kemba, Kha Regent Leonin Shikari Auriok Steelshaper Moonsilver Spear Umezawa's Jitte and finally the Kaldra cycle of equipments Helm of Kaldra Sword of Kaldra Shield of Kaldra

I feel like this deck really want to be running an equipment package of some sort. Here is a few good options Tenza, Godo's Maul, Hero's Blade, Helm of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Batterskull, Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of War and Peace, and Sword of Vengeance.

If you decide to run red equipment here is some support Armory Automaton, Brass Squire, and Godo, Bandit Warlord.

The big suggestion I'd make is to include some equipment to make Neheb immune to your burn effects: Darksteel Plate, Magebane Armor, Shield of Kaldra, Sword of Fire and Ice, etc. That way, you can burn the field without caring about his toughness! :)

Aether Vial is incredibly weak in your deck, due to all your creatures having cmc 4 or greater, Lotus petal is also quite weak, Sol Ring fits into every deck, Gilded Lotus, and Thran Dynamo are all great ramp for edh, and you will want ways to protect your commander, cards like Darksteel Plate, Shield of Kaldra and Reconnaissance can stop your commander from dying in combat, Reconnaissance is one of the best cards for this, because you can still get your general's trigger. Underworld Connections is much worse than Phyrexian Arena or Necropotence

@mortilus: Yes, Shield of Kaldra and Darksteel Plate have basiclly the exact same effect, but the higher casting and equiping cost is in total 3 mana more, which is a lot for the same thing. At the moment there are 4 tutors that can get me the Darksteel Plate if I need it. Adding an Stoneforge Mystic would increase the chances of getting any missing piece even further. Which I might very well do :)

The shield might be an alternative for some players that want to keep the deck as cheap as possible. In a playgroup that plays more slow decks the higher cost doesn't stand out as much.

Nontheless thank you for your suggestion :) I appreciate it.

Surprised to not see Shield of Kaldra. Costlier than Darksteel Plate, but otherwise exactly the same, and no hard-to-pay drawbacks like Eldrazi Monument has.
