Red Ward maybe as a way to make sure you don't lose your commander every time you blow up the world?

Or if you want to spring a more money, a Sword of War and Peace or Sword of Fire and Ice would have the same benefit plus some.

Good start. Right now it's cheap, and money is nothing to the great and mighty Yargle.

Needs more Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers + Bloodcurdling Scream/Shade's Form/Howl from Beyond.

Frogs can't normally hold swords, but Yargle is special and needs his homeboys Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of War and Peace, and Sword of Body and Mind

I know this is creatureless Yargle, but Crypt Ghast is too good to not include.

You have Tainted Strike but no Grafted Exoskeleton? Shame on you.

Hall of the Bandit Lord makes your frog fast.

You have a lot of swamps. Nothing says swamp like ogres. Oh, and Liliana of the Dark Realms.

Eldrazi Conscription. Ulamog step aside, we have a new titan here.

Hatred turns your pesky life total into more damage.

Necropolis Regent makes sure your frog can hold his foes in his belly.

Just in case your frog eats eighteen different removal spells, Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, and Helm of Kaldra can hit people too. Or just run Nim Deathmantle. That works too.

Argentum Armor can get rid of pesky Ghostly Prisons

Well, I'm bored of typing out card names. Therefore, this is where my tribute to Yargle ends.

Just a quick question: why is Trophy Mage in here? The only targets are Chromatic Lantern and Orzhov Cluestone. These are not an ideal target. Something more like Sword of Light and Shadow or Sword of War and Peace. That would synergize great with all the lifegain. Also, Serene Steward works great in my lifegain builds.

The creature can still be Lightning Bolted during combat after the equip, with no pump to defense. I do like that Withengar Unbound can't be Fatal Pushed though. If he dies, he just goes to the graveyard, right? He doesn't stay on the field as an equipment?

I thought about a swords package to go along with the armor, maybe Sword of War and Peace, Sword of Fire and Ice, and Sword of Feast and Famine.

I don't really like Bane of the Living, Curse of Vitality, Michiko Konda, Archfiend of Depravity, Past in Flames, or Pristine Talisman. I think Talisman is better as Boros Signet or, given that Mathas has menace, an equipment like Sword of the Animist or Sword of Fire and Ice,Sword of War and Peace or Umezawa's Jitte.

Hi this is Derek.

Okay here's the obvious weak links:Deadeye Harpooner: Fine card, probably would be better as something like Fiend Hunter, though (there's a combo with Ayli).Disciple of the Vault: I think your artifact theme is a lil light.Encampment Keeper: If you want an anthem, you are probably better off with a legit lord or non-creature anthem effect. If you want to go the lord route, you'd probably need to go more tribal. Also there's definitely other 1 CMC monstros that would give you some boost.Master Trinketer: Probably a bit too slow. Fine card, though.Solemn Recruit: Little off the main goals of the deck. Good card, though - maybe also consider Mirran Crusader if you want this kind of lad?Battle at the Bridge: Definitely would need stronger artifact theme for this to be actively good. It's fine, it's just not actively good. One potential option is Profane Command?Chaplain's Blessing: This sort of lifegain tends to be bad. Maybe consider a triggered source? Depending on budget, Sword of War and Peace seems good. Sylvok Lifestaff too. Even Inspiring Cleric from Innistrad (which also gives you a body for Ayli).Shadows of the Past: Seems okay but maybe something a little cheaper for a powerful effect? Spirit Bonds might be sick here.Decomission: I think there's probably better alternatives for artifact/enchantment destruction.

Obvious omissions:Lingering Souls is INSANE.If you want to go the token route, you may want to consider anthems (Spear of Heliod, Glorious Anthem, Mirror Entity, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit), as well as other powerful token makers (Secure the Wastes, Sword of Body and Mind, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Monastery Mentor).For removal, consider sweepers (Slaughter the Strong, Forced March, Black Sun's Zenith, Retribution of the Meek) as well as the really strong point removal (Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares) and the really cheap removal that's considerably worse (Vendetta, Smother, Ulcerate) and the more flexible removal that can hit everything (Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking).

Mother of Runes is sick.Sacrifice outlets have a few obvious combos in Fiend Hunter, Mesmeric Fiend and Tidehollow Sculler.Orzhov Signet is good.Card draw is good. There's not a lot of good card draw in BW. I would suggest Skeletal Scrying or maybe Damnable Pact.Finally, gots to have some way to interact with graveyards (people DEFINITELY use them in the format). Bojuka Bog is the standard. People often rock Tormod's Crypt and Relic of Progenitus too.For mana base, maybe Orzhov Guildgate, Scoured Barrens and Forsaken Sanctuary as well as Caves of Koilos and Orzhov Basilica (a sick combo with Bojuka Bog). More expensive options are Godless Shrine, Isolated Chapel and Shambling Vent.

colton815 on Kor Equipment: Modern Competitive?

i would highly recommend the "sword" equips. its the cycle with Sword of Feast and Famine and other sword equips that each give protection from 2 different colors as well as 2 different triggered abilities that trigger when the creature deals damage. they work very well with double strikers like Kor Duelist and Mirran Crusader. the Sword of Feast and Famine specifically also works well with Sigarda's Aid if you have it on a double striker. when you attack you can deal first strike damage, untap your lands (and make the opp discard of course), flash in another "sword" equip (such as Sword of War and Peace), attach it to the same creature for free, deal normal combat damage, then both swords trigger.

i would also recommend Vault Skirge because it gets your artifact count up for Puresteel Paladin while also being a great creature to equip. Etherium Sculptor is another good artifact creature.

i would also highly recommend running 20 lands, and equips that are more powerful. the ones you have now don't really do much with just a +1 to power. Godsend and Cranial Plating are powerful options.

a white deck in modern definitely needs 4 Path to Exile
