- If I have Bruna, Light of Alabaster on the battlefield attached enchanted with Steel of the Godhead and Spirit Loop, do I gain double the damage dealt?
- can child of alara single handedly kill an overpowered bruna, light of alabaster
- Can I use Venser, the Sojourner to move a Steel of the Godhead onto a Deft Duelist?
Steel of the Godhead
Enchantment — Aura
As long as enchanted creature is white, it gets +1/+1 and has lifelink. (Damage dealt by the creature also causes its controller to gain that much life.)
As long as enchanted creature is blue, it gets +1/+1 and is unblockable.

Steel of the Godhead Discussion

Since your idea is to beat your opponents with your commander, why don't you make it a bit more voltron with cards like:
For board swipe, counters and draw cards:
Unexpectedly Absent (cause you put the card you want to steal on top of it's owner's library just paying two mana and chosing X = 0)
For some good lands I'd suggest:

Thanks for the help! I knew some Mana ramp would be helpful, but just wanted to be sure I had all of the essentials. Think I'll pick up a Steel of the Godhead, seems like that unblockable/lifelink is definitely worth it.

Hi. Thanks for those suggestions, man!
Regarding Chronic Flooding, I just though of including it because I had it lying around and it was an enchantment. Haha. Selfless Spirit is interesting though
For Steel of the Godhead, I also heavily considered this but its 3CC kinda broke my mana curve so I thought of moving away from it

I don't see the point in Chronic Flooding. what does it do for you? there are better cards out there like Selfless Spirit, Rattlechains or other enchantments like Hyena Umbra, Daybreak Coronet or even Steel of the Godhead.

And here are some cards that I think would go well in the deck:
- Leyline of Anticipation (The ability to hold up mana to have "answers" is priceless)
- Auramancer's Guise
- Daybreak Coronet
- Eldrazi Conscription
- Ethereal Armor
- Gift of Immortality
- Spectra Ward
- Steel of the Godhead
- Spirit Loop THIS IS NOT LIFELINK! So if a creature with lifelink would gain you double the life.
- Celestial Mantle
- On Serra's Wings
- Ajani's Chosen
- Hanna, Ship's Navigator
- Academy Rector
- Sun Titan

I just made a deck like this so I think I know a little bit about Kithkin cards. First I'm not sure about Figure of Destiny it's not a fast card and Ballyrush Banneret doesn't help it get out faster. Second I feel like Thistledown Liege could be replaced by Honor of the Pure but if it's part of the gimmick of the deck it's good. Also Steel of the Godhead works on two creatures in the deck and is completely unnecessary and you could spend your mana better on your turn. Here is my deck for inspiration Kithkin Militia

First of all, I really like Spirts and I've built a very similar deck that I've had success with.
So I'm going to make some initial suggestions with explanations. My advice is coming from playtesting this deck for months and months. That being said, it is YOUR deck so feel free to play however you like!
What I believe you should take out:
Here's what I think you should add:
And here are my reasons why:
You want to cut down on Auras. Drawing an Aura without having a creature to equip it to feels really bad, it's a dead card. This deck should be creature-focused, all about beating your opponent down with Flying spirits occasionally buffed up with Auras; not the other way around.
Sovereigns of Lost Alara is a great card, but most opponents won't let you survive until you have 6 mana. This deck wants to end things very, very quickly. A Geist of Saint Traft equipped with Steel of the Godhead is a very fast clock, you really don't need to go to turn 6.
Without the Sovereigns, Eldrazi Conscription is also pointless.
Daybreak Coronet is a great card, but unfortunately it cannot be searched by Tallowisp's effect. There is a ruling that states Tallowisp can only search for cards that say "Enchant Creature" on their first line with no other words in that same line (so things like Steel of the Godhead are fine). But Daybreak Coronet says "Enchant creature with..." so unfortunately it cannot be searched.
You liked having the option to stall the game with Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch and Ghostly Possession, well let me tell you about Selfless Spirit and Gift of Immortality. Selfless Spirit can sacrifice itself at any time to give your whole team indestructible, so they can freely block any creature or survive damage or destruction. It's a great effect, but a Selfless Spirit enchanted with Gift of Immortality can do this EVERY TURN and there's very little your opponent can do to get out of this lock. I'd highly recommend this change above all others I've listed.
Swords to Plowshares because you need some reliable removal in case you run into a creature that's just giving you a lot of trouble.
Curious Obsession keeps your hand filled; the last thing you want is to run out of steam.
I'd recommend exchanging 1 Drogskol Captain for another Spell Queller. Once you have a Steel-enchanged Geist on the field, you should try to save mana for Spell Queller, because your opponent might try to kill it with a mass removal spell like Supreme Verdict. You need to be able to stop things like that with Spell Queller.
Feel free to look at my deck here: Immortal Geist
I've written some pretty detailed stuff so you can get a good understanding of the deck.
As for your sideboard, I'll take a look at the Legacy metagame and get back to you, but good luck with your deck!
