- 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
1 week ago
Maybe you can consider Geist of Saint Traft as an alternate wincon option? He swings for 6 each turn (him + Angel token), more if pumped with Captain. Put a Steel of the Godhead on him and he becomes a 4/4 unblockable with lifelink.
A bit on the pricey side, Kira, Great Glass-Spinner helps to protect your creatures if you don't have a Captain on the field.

Next I would play more lands personally. I like to run 35-37 depending on how many mana rocks I'm playing.
Cards like Diplomatic Immunity (Zur's ability lets auras he tutors up attach to him even if he has shroud!), Steel of the Godhead, and Shielded by Faith are great ways to protect Zur so you can keep attacking with him every turn.
Lastly, there are a ton of cards you could use like a toolbox against certain strategies that are giving you trouble like Darksteel Mutation, Nevermore, Karmic Justice, Rest in Peace. and Imprisoned in the Moon

Kechl thank you for enjoying the deck. Cool little story.
The deck can definitely be adjusted and tested. I'll start with your suggestions.
Gift of Immortality is definitely a great card it the hard part is the 3 cost. It makes it hard to bring more than one in and there is a lot of times you just don't want it yet Tallowisp helps you get it When you do. After testing with all of the hexproof and counters with creatures I just felt it was amazing in the side but not in the main. It slowed down the main idea and usually wanted it game 2 after I had more knowledge of what I was facing.
Selfless Spirit is a great card. Especially with GoI like you stated. This is just a decision on what you face and what you think your week against. Only 2 because I feel like I can try to stop most board wipes with the cards in the deck and the two for extra insurance. 2 I feel is a good spot for selfless with all of the control I have. A lot of my cards also cost 3 so I'm not going to have a lot to keep alive unless I counter.
I actually feel like if I have GoI thenKami of False Hope is better for me in more areas which is why I have 3. The main issues I've had is when someone is going to swarm the board and kami just locks their combat. A selfless helps me block but a lot of damage well still happen and I'll be hit for it. Being swarmed and big swings can be this decks weakness, but kami and GoI can help with that. The life link if steel of God Hand does also.
As for Eidolon of Rhetoric. No doubt is a great sideboard card. You just have to know what your going to face. I just chose to try to fight combo with the counters, but if your going to face it a lot it is definitely needed in the side. I don't really see storm very much so not in there current. Mainly what I see is death shadow, affinity, control, and mid-range stuff. I feel like my side is good for that.
As for Rootrunner it's just not a fit for the deck. Cost too much green and your already tight on Mana. There is really only 1 green for Rancor because Rancor is just that good. Buffs any flyers you want and makes them better without ever being wasted if you lose it.
Thanks for the suggestions none were bad. If you want to pick it up please let me know how it goes I do not get to test it enough but when I do it played great. You can adjust the side for what you need but I think the current one is solid. All the cards in the maybe area could easily go in vs certain decks if you know what your facing. Even if you face a lot of combo with Devoted Druid Oppressive Rays has helped me stop it. It can be a bit slow though. There is a lot of things you can adjust but this is how so far it tested best for me.

The first thing that I would suggest is cutting out the bounce lands. Not only do they put you a land behind, but they also put you a turn behind. That's something narset can't afford. It would be better to replace those lands with basics until you can grab the shocks.
Next, I would take out all equips and replace them with buffing enchantments like Indestructibility and Tricks of the Trade. Steel of the Godhead is also a wonderful include along with Volcanic Strength.
Replace manalith with Darksteel Ingot. Ideally, you don't want 3drop mana rocks, but darksteel is better than manalith until you can grab moxes.
I would replace the creatures with either stax pieces or spells that make tokens, just so you don't fizzle on a narset attack. Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Ghostly Prison, Smoke, Raise the Alarm, Talrand's Invocation. The last two aren't great, but they all provide a small amount of protection against attackers. Replace Minds Aglow with Mind Spring for a better effect.
Most of these suggestions are budget friendly, mildly competitive and will get you set in the right direction for less than $100 (with shocks added to the price)

Sweet list! I like the interactions Tallowisp has with Steel of the Godhead and Geist of Saint Traft, and it also works with your other multicolored creatures. I don't know the context in which you will be playing this deck, but I noticed you do not have many answers for some of the common tier 1 modern decks at the moment (Tron and Jeskai/UW Control come to mind). Spreading Seas, Ghost Quarter, or Field of Ruin are good offense cards to check out as well as a Cavern of Souls to protect your win conditions (Geist of Saint Traft and Tallowisp) which both happen to be spirits.
I like the idea of putting green in the deck for Mausoleum Wanderer + Rancor but outside of that interaction, I don't know how much rancor will benefit the other creatures. It is similar to the interaction between Reach Through Mists and Tallowisp; it is decent value if you can get it to work but every time you have Reach Through Mists in hand with no Tallowisp, a Serum Visions or Opt would be much better. However, green has lots of great cards that could go in the deck such as Collected Company and Natural State (even though you have the Kataki, War's Wage, it does not do much against Tron decks).
Overall, this deck looks like some 10/10 spice, +1!

I don't know what kind of theme or way of winning you are trying to go for. you don't really have a way to win with this deck. You need to get some kind of combo. Zur is very powerful because he can tutor an enchantment out of your deck so use that to your advantage and try to put in cards that are 3 or less so that your commander can have a greater effect. Try to go find an infinite combo or you can also build stax. You won't win consistently if you don't have an infinite combo. You might find other versions of zur on this site that are good (probably not). CEDH Reddit can probably help you out... though some of the things might be expensive. The things I suggested are just a couple relatively cheap cards that make a big impact. Try to have a theme in your deck whether it is control/combo or voltron or pillowfort.

The first additional cards that come to mind when I see your list and want to adhere to both your themes, are Karmic Guide and Geist-Honored Monk. I believe however, that Brago is much too powerful a control-commander, to restrict him to Spirit-tribal cards.
In case you have not done this already, I would recommend you pay a visit to the website EDHREC.com and have a look at some of the typical cards people use in Brago decks. Some of the combo's you can pull off with him are insane.
Btw, I'd really consider adding some cards that make Brago unblockable/untouchable; otherwise it becomes hard to pull off your combo's. I'm using cards like Unquestioned Authority, Whispersilk Cloak and Steel of the Godhead.
Good luck and happy gaming! FYI: I would really appreciate your feedback on one of my decks. Feel free to comment/vote on any one of them.
