Sigarda's Aid Discussion
1 day ago
I mentioned my WonderCats deck in a previous comment, but let me elaborate a bit with some of my own thoughts, if I may? First off, some things I really like in your deck: Dawn Charm, Chameleon Colossus, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Skyhunter Prowler, Regal Caracal, Hunter's Insight, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Duelist's Heritage, Lost Leonin, Adorned Pouncer, & Rancor are all awesome additions! Some amazing cats that are glaringly absent are Mirri, Cat Warrior & Brimaz, King of Oreskos, both of which I would include in any Cat-deck. If you are going to keep Grafted Exoskeleton, one of the best cats you could run is Leonin Abunas. If you re-vamp for more of the equipment theme at any point, I would definitely include Abunas, as well as Balan, Wandering Knight, Sigarda's Aid, Steelshaper's Gift, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith / Hammer of Nazahn, & even Stonehewer Giant & Puresteel Paladin. Kemba, Kha Regent is ok, as is Leonin Shikari, but the other cards I mentioned have proven more significant when going with the equip theme. Some things have removed: Pride Sovereign is great in theory, but too slow & vulnerable in practice. Leonin Relic-Warder puts a big fat target on himself when he enters, which does cause that player to use up resources targeting him, but then you and that player just fall behind the other people at the table and he eventually gets his stuff back (& I don't think it gives enough of a tempo swing to warrant a slot). Wily Bandar is terrible imo. Watchers of the Dead, too, & same with Whitemane Lion (unless you have some ETB abilities to abuse). Have you considered using Vedalken Orrery or Sun Titan? Both seem like they would work very well in your current build. Angelic Destiny would be sweet with this recurring-enchantment-theme, as would Sterling Grove. Herald's Horn is actually very good for any tribal deck (it's basically card draw & ramp, in one card!). I would replace Mana Confluence with Brushland, which is strictly-better in a Selesnya deck since it can tap for colorless without dealing damage. Sylvan Library is the card I am always most eager to draw by turn 2 in every game, & I would highly HIGHLY recommend getting it. Sensei's Divining Top is also pretty awesome. Late game, my best top-deck by far is Genesis Wave. GET IT. USE IT. Wins games all by itself. Gilded Lotus would probably work well here too if you need more ramp (I use Thran Dynamo because I am heavy on the equipment). I would run a Quietus Spike in any deck with a Double Strike sub-theme, since even a 1/1 buffed with Arahbo's eminence & double strike (say, a flyer like Skyhunter Skirmisher) takes an opponent's life total from 40 down to 7 in just one swing. LOL! I've really enjoyed Bloodforged Battle-Axe with double strike, too, but it is really best with Sigarda's Aid & Hammer of Nazahn, since paying equip costs on twenty equipment can be a bit much.. but I have HAD TWENTY on the board, which is sweet. Anyways, these are just my ramblings, but hopefully I can help in some way- Good Luck, fellow Cat Warrior! (Cat Warrior, counts as a Cat Warrior)

I would also cut way down to 35 lands as 43 is far too many in my opinion. Feel free to check out my equipment deck for any inspiration. Although it is W/U you may still find something useful! Daxos and His Many Weapons of Evil

Awesome deck. I'd suggest Sigarda's Aid for more consistency personally, it's a stable of mine for Voltron decks.

If you're using the second ability of Sigarda's Aid, then you can still attach it. While Stony Silence stops you from using the Equip ability, Sigarda's Aid specifically tells you that you can attach the equipment to a creature you control when the equipment enters the battlefield.

I had run Kaldra until I realized that I could put other utility equipmemt in my deck to get a bit more toolbox-y with my tutors, but Kaldra remains as my absolute favorite #1 card set in Magic overall, so believe me when I say I'd run him if I could. Getting Kaldra is easy with all the tutors out there: Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Enlightened Tutor, Relic Seeker, Inventors' Fair, and Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith. Heck Nazahn with Blade of Selves can nab them all in one shot.
Next is bypassing the Equip costs. Puresteel Paladin, Hammer of Nazahn, Sigarda's Aid, Nahiri, the Lithomancer, and Brass Squire can all help. Plus, don't worry about equip costs at all, really, since it's just 1mana to make token and instantly equip all the pieces to it. Also Mirror Gallery is hilarious with Kaldra, making 4/4s for just 1mana lol.

I think Elspeth, Knight-Errant can be an acceptable substitution for Power Matrix if needed, although I like the Trample that Power Matrix grants. Likewise Duelist's Heritage is a fair substitute for Battle Mastery and each has their own advantages and disadvantages; Duelist's Heritage sticks around when Isamaru, Hound of Konda dies and this deck has more tutors for Battle Mastery
Empyrial Plate is an acceptable alternative to Empyrial Armor but I am not certain I would run both of them. This deck tends to run low on cards in hand and when Empyrial Armor is out the play style changes to accommodate that card. As with Duelist's Heritage and Battle Mastery there are advantages and disadvantages to both Empyrial Plate and Empyrial Armor for this deck; Empyrial Plate sticks around and Empyrial Armor comes down a turn faster unless Sigarda's Aid is in play. This deck tends to run faster and riskier in trade for less resiliency. A more resilient play style, though, is an acceptable alternative and I think the deck can be tweaked to adjust for individual groups, play styles, and meta environments.
Regarding recursion I tend not to worry about it (the "fast and risky" plan). At various times the deck has run recursion effects but they tend to take time and resources to use well. At worst recursion cards are a dead draw if there is nothing to recur and at best it gives you some backup. Instead I would rather be drawing new equipment and resources.
- Godsend is a fun card but I think it would be too slow for this deck. It is a lot of fun in more casual decks in multiplayer, though, in my experience.
- Thanks for the compliment! I can see Lightmine Field and Clock of Omens doing some work for this deck but, as you said, its difficult to find cards to cut. At this point, unless there are more detrimental changes to the banlist, most modifications to the deck are for direct substitutions of existing cards that, for whatever reason, function better than the existing cards.
- I actually did try Sram, Senior Edificer as the commander for this deck when he first came out. The raw value is, to say the least, very powerful. If you wanted to swap Isamaru, Hound of Konda for Sram, Senior Edificer the immediate changes I would make to the deck would be to transition some of the spot removal and unattached buffs to cards that take advantage of Sram, Senior Edificer

Wow dude +1 for this original concept, really cool!
I don't know how strict you are with the 1CMC, but maybe it's an idea to add some ways to utilize the fact that you play weenie like Mentor of the Meek. I would also play Skullclamp for some extra draw-power. Mother of Runes and Flickering Ward fit your theme and they are great for protecting your forces.
I would definitely run some power equipments like Argentum Armor and Strata Scythe (awesome in mono-colored) because now you lack a bit of late game. You could use Sigarda's Aid to get around the higher equipment costs.
