Player3.14 on Sword of Body and Mind …

I really should be running Gauntlet of Power. I also forgot that card existed.

I also really like Champion's Helm.

Blackblade Reforged, Fireshrieker, Inquisitor's Flail, and Strata Scythe all just make the equipped creature a big beater and don't offer any forms of card advantage. But I suppose if I can finish my opponents off with commander damage, then that's what matters.

Avenging Huntbonder is interesting, too! As you say, it's not an equipment, but it does wield my other swords well and double strike on an 8/8 is nasty.

It looks like I've got some stuff to try.

Thanks for the recommendations!

Cool deck dude!

So some equipment that would rather have instead of body and mind in a mono-white deck that are under the $40 price tag:

Blackblade Reforged Champion's Helm Fireshrieker Inquisitor's Flail Strata Scythe and although not technically an equipment the Avenging Huntbonder is a sick card that I wish i had a home for.

It looks like you need more card draw to take more advantage of Azusa. Something like Nylea's Intervention maybe?

Blackblade Reforged or Strata Scythe with Azusa could be a win-con.

Mishra's Helix could shut people down if you have mana superiority.

Here’s some decent pieces to both help with the war theme and make life difficult for your enemies.

Fumiko the Lowblood because samurai

Warmonger Hellkite makes creatures attack and can be pumped

Incite RebellionandDisrupt Decorum both have that sort of subterfuge, disrupt enemy lines feel to me.

Grand Melee because open war

Goblin Diplomats because diplomacy is needed in every war

Prowler's Helm like a spy slipping through their defenses.

Outpost Siege card advantage and siege is referenced.

Blackblade Reforged and Strata Scythe can both make varchild big after a bit of development. More survivors

Grenzo, Havoc Razor

Paragon of Fierce Defiance

Godo, Bandit Warlord and while you’re at it you could add Helm of the Host as an easy win

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell

Bloodsworn Steward

Archetype of Aggression

Dockside Extortionist because there is always people like that in war

Neheb, the Eternal is likely worth a spot.

Oni of Wild Places may not necessarily fit the theme but repeatedly bouncing varchild has its advantages

Signal Pest

Iron Myr for mana

Legion Warboss

Angrath's Marauders

Downhill Charge seems pretty good.

Fatal Frenzy and Mercadia's Downfall feel decent too.

Seize the Day is very war themed to me.

By Force implies hostilities

Burn at the Stake might be a big kill card after you’ve taken a bunch of survivors. 3 times the amount you tap gets huge quick.

World at War

Mizzium Mortars

Crawlspace so you can bottleneck their armies like Sparta did against the Persians lol.

Voyager Staff to remove varchild maybe?

That’s what stood out most to me with a quick glance through EDHRec. I’ll keep brainstorming for ya though!

King saproling! Thanks so much for the upvote and suggestions! lets start on the positives, Strata Scythe , Not of This World , Aphotic Wisps , Expedition Map , Eternal Thirst , Blade of the Bloodchief , and Sadistic Glee are all amazing! ill put them into my maybeboard for consideration! they all fit the theme of the deck super well, but the deck is kind of tightly packed as it is, so itll be hard to incorporate them. the other cards are alright in some cases, but the Glaring Spotlight i already have enough anti hexproof with the two lands and shadowspear, Hatred isnt honorable! it one shots my opponent, but then i paid a whole lot of life and i only kill 1 person, so eh. Necrologia for the same reason of paying a lot of life, and then Tsabo's Decree , Wail of the Nim and Manascape Refractor all feel a little underwhelming, but thanks for the suggestions! have a good one!
