Nice deck!

Have you thought about Taj-Nar Swordsmith to fetch your artifacts? Noble Panther might also be worth considering.

Snacrifice on Sram, Senior Edificer EDH Budget

Ghost Quarter would save you some money if you replaced Strip Mine with it.

Dusk / Dawn is a cheaper Retribution of the Meek.

Hero's Blade is fantastic, since it'll re-equip when Sram inevitably gets removed by something.

Crib Swap and Afterlife cost more in mana than Swords to Plowshares, but they shave money off your budget and are just as viable in EDH.

Trailblazer's Boots are a better cheap equip than say Trusty Machete because even if it costs one more to drop, it'll consistently read as 'unblockable'. Prowler's Helm is a similar budget option but there are walls that get dropped more often:P.

Cultivator's Caravan is just wasteful budget when you can use Darksteel Ingot for an indestructible version, or Manalith for a way cheaper option(or, if you don't care about making white mana, Pristine Talisman will gain you life. Tooth of Ramos also gives you a pocket two mana)

Oreskos Explorer is Knight of the White Orchid except cheaper and better in multiplayer.

Taj-Nar Swordsmith gives you another tutor. Planar Cleansing is a cheap mass-removal that could replace WOG(though it costs some more mana) or just give you another wipe.

Always good to see economical decks :D

Thanks for the feedback NV_1980... I highly disagree with your evaluation of a few cards though ...Bygone Bishop (card draw is one thing white severely lacks), Palace Jailer (kind of the same reason) and Council's Judgment as an overall removal spell is nuts in a 1v1 situation and hits the targets you wish to hit in a multiplayer setting most of the time while not targeting and therefore ignoring the likes of shroud/protection...

I have to agree on: Student of Warfare most likely does not offer all that much and is rather slow while Ranger of Eos and Taj-Nar Swordsmith are both quite mana inefficient... Mirran Crusader is nothing but an equippable aggro drop..

I would 100% definitely run Containment Priest as well as Batterskull if these cards were not quite expensive on mtgo.

Hi,

I think you're onto something but your build could use some improvement in terms of disruption/taxation.

I'd consider adding: Windborn Muse, Containment Priest, Glory, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Angelic Arbiter, Sunblast Angel, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Ghostly Prison, Grasp of Fate, Aura of Silence, Divine Reckoning and Descend upon the Sinful.

I think there are several cards in your deck that are either not doing much to support your strategy OR you could replace with more powerful versions mentioned in the above list; namely: Bygone Bishop, Mirran Crusader, Palace Jailer, Ranger of Eos, Student of Warfare, Taj-Nar Swordsmith and Council's Judgment.

Good luck and have fun.

For commander, you don't want to run low power level cards (take out Graceful Cat, Oreskos Sun Guide, Sacred Cat, Skyhunter Prowler, Captain's Claws, Journeyer's Kite, and Ajani's Mantra at least). These cards may be okay early game in modern, but are completely useless in commander. Also, cards that do not help you toward your goal of cats/equipment, should be taken out (Ajani's Chosen, Ajani's Pridemate, Felidar Sovereign).

Okay, now that we've just gotten rid of half your deck, here are some replacements. Coat of Arms, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Leonin Squire, Sigarda's Aid, Path to Exile, Ajani, Caller of the Pride and White Sun's Zenith. In commander, mana is kind of important, so cards like Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion should not be left out. Also, you might want to change your commander to Kemba, Kha Regent. He has much more synergy with the cat/equipment archetype. Hope this helps!
