Artifact — Equipment
Equipped creature gets +1/+1.
Equip (: Attach to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery.)
Short Sword Discussion

The equipment needs to put counters on the creature for it to double with Doubling Season or Hardened Scales . If you equip a creature with Short Sword it only gets +1/+1 once. If the equipped creature is equipped with an equipment such as Armory of Iroas it will get double the +1/+1 counters.

Awesome! It's actually blisteringly fast for such a budget build! A few suggestions:
I wonder whether Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves might be a valuable addition. The only thing worse that a pumped up beastie is one that can't be targeted - though I recognise that this amps the budget a little, and also turns it into pseudo bogles.
22 land is a lot for such a small curve. Could you cut a few to amp the equipment?
Really great idea and brew. Nice work!

I've also recently started PDH. I would suggest changing the following for objectively-better versions
Skyblinder Staff If you have flying and cant be blocked by flying, you can only be blocked by Reach (which not many PDH players play)

Then, I do not understand why Demanding Dragon should be usefull, I mean, it's true that's a 5/5 flying creature, but it's effect is not worth the mana you spend on him, in my opinion. Remember that is the opponent who chooses whether sacrifice a creature or lose 5. Basically you cast it and if you are lucky its effect would sort in something, but most of the times it won't and you've spent 5 mana on an easily removable creature. That's why I'd suggest some Lightning Bolt or, if you really like things that make your opponent decide something, Vexing Devil or Browbeat
Similar story for Dismissive Pyromancer : basically you have an easily destroyable creature, that let's you discard a card in order to draw one (and, since you don't have ways to draw cards, sometimes would not be so usefull) or, for the cost of 3 mana, deals 4 damage to an opponent and then dies. Is it worth?
Could Fatal Frenzy be usefull here?

Thanks! I guess I have to try it without equipments. But I have to say, that I won most games just because of the power of Short Sword. :D
I guess I have to cutout Forebear's Blade and 1-2 other cards for just some copies of Deafening Clarion and Lava Coil. Got sometimes troubles against decks which flod the board with to many tokens. Also, would you suggest to replace Squire's Devotion with On Serra's Wings at least for 1-2?

The immediate problem I see is that you're running far too many lands. Normally a deck like this with such low card costs would be running about 22 lands, give or take.
Auras in general are pretty bad in Magic since you're setting yourself up to get 2-for-1'd by removal, and since all of your creatures also work by being equipped, I would slant more the equipment route since at least they're reusable after your creature gets killed. This creates another problem though - there's not many good equipment cards in standard currently. To remain within your low mana curve a couple you could try are Short Sword or Cobbled Wings. Marauder's Axe and Shield of the Realm are also probably usable. I still wouldn't run too many equipment, no more than maybe 4 or 5.
In my own quest to make auras work in standard, I found that On Serra's Wings was always the aura I wanted showing up. You could try a couple of those.
Novice Knight is hit or miss. I found it to be pretty good vs aggro decks but too often it was sitting there doing nothing because I'd either have no auras for it to attack with, or have better creatures to put my auras on. Dauntless Bodyguard is a pretty good replacement for it since it can attack early without an aura and if it's drawn later on it can instead be a shield for one of your other creatures.
