Taj-Nar Swordsmith Discussion

Didn't see it mentioned, but you should consider adding Taj-Nar Swordsmith. I think you will find this to be a pleasant addition because it isn't slow and has no downsides.

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Bloodforged Battle-Axe + Behemoth Sledge + Sigarda's Aid + Krosan Vorine would be a great replacement 4 cards. I've been playing Bloodforged Battle-Axe in my Mirri, Little Kid Aggro EDH and it can get out of hand sometimes!

Sterling Grove is great, I don't have many Enchantments which is why I ended up removing it, but the ability to tutor Sylvan Library is powerful. Sylvan Library is very important in winning with Arahbo, Roar of the World.

Cultivate + Kodama's Reach + Mirari's Wake + Raksha Golden Cub or Jazal Goldmane (And activate him 2x or 3x) could also be good.

You could try the Blackblade Reforged + Sword of the Animist + Sigarda's Aid + Stoneforge Mystic or Burnished Hart, and replace the fast mana fetches like Nature's Lore and Three Visits and Green Sun's Zenith with Cultivate + Kodama's Reach to get more lands, throw in a Traverse the Outlands to ensure you win. Tutor your Blackblade Reforged and with a Doublestrike or Trample would be an effective weapon. Throw a Taj-Nar Swordsmith in there too since the sword is only . Rhonas the Indomitable will be awesome in this build, with all that land he can trigger his ability to give Trample to the Blackblade Reforged Cat.

The following 4 cards are not performing as wanted and are up on the chopping block to make place for some of the cards on my acquireboard:

Taj-Nar Swordsmith is just too mana intensive to really be value. Sure, our equipment is just between 1 and 3 cmc, but that means we are still paying between 5 and a whopping 7 mana, for a equipment tutor and a very mediocre body. And that is it. We don't have enough mana to be wasting is like that.

Quest for the Holy Relic is a wonderful card and a thematic win I feel. But we are simply not running enough creatures to ever actually trigger it. It makes me sad, but it probably has to go.

Commander's Sphere I find very mediocre. Ramp has to really be good to be worth 3 mana. And cantripping in the late game is not worth it to me. This will likely just be turned into a Marble Diamond once I acquire one.

Burnished Hart is a good card. It is land ramp for decks without land ramp. But it is another very mana intensive card. The interaction with Emeria Shepherd makes me hesitant to cut it. Fetching 2 plains and bringing any non-land permanent of your choice + keeping your Burnished Hart, that is the stuff that wins games. This one out of these 4 I am most hesitant to cut.

The cards I will likely add first are the swords of F&F and F&I. I think I rather just bring my equipment count up, than run underperforming tutors.

Some self damaging lands will be useful! City of Brass, Grand Coliseum, Tarnished Citadel, Nomad Stadium. These will give you tekens just for tapping for mana, better than free!

You'll then want the soul sisters to counteract the damage with lifegain! Every token you get gains you a life, so you end up even on life and now have tokens! Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, Suture Priest, and maybe Anointer Priest!

Cathars' Crusade will be really good!

Mentor of the Meek is great draw! Oblation is too; you can just hit one of your tokens for cards!

You'll absolutely want Rootborn Defenses and Eldrazi Monument to protect your army.

Steelshaper Apprentice, Steelshaper's Gift, Stonehewer Giant, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Enlightened Tutor, and Open the Armory can all get your equipment.

Also, crazy combo idea: Blasting Station + Soul's Attendant + Darien, King of Kjeldor + Altar of the Brood = mill win.

Hope some of this helps!

Your deck seems really focused on the scepter and Sunforger, which is awesome!

For consistency, you'll want more tutors like:

All of these have varying degrees of usefulness and pricetag, but they could all be considered. Some aren't as good with so few creatures, however.

Brass Squire would be another good Sunforger Equip-er.

Hope some of this helps!

I suggest to add Kor Cartographer even if it isn't a soldier but being able to put plains into play seems very useful in R/W. Burnished Hart and Myriad Landscape can help as well if you have ramp issues or want to focus more on emeria or high mana cards. Unfortunately the last two cards might be too slow.

If you add some more equipments like Lightning Greaves for the angels (other protection might be Nahiri's Machinations but I don't think it is as good if you have many tokens / little creatures), Taj-Nar Swordsmith might be a good inclusion. Marshal's Anthem might be good for the tokens + revivng creatures.

How good is Gleam of Battle? It seems very expensive for what it does.

I just got the C17 commander decklist and here are a couple cards you might want to think about.

Equipment: Sword of the Animist is a pretty good ramp, Sword of Vengeance is just sick.

Card Removal: Condemn is a good white card removal.

Equipment Stuff: Sunspear Shikari is a better Leonin Den-Guard Taj-Nar Swordsmith is a pretty good Equipment search. I love the deck, +1!

i'd suggest to cut Taj-Nar Swordsmith for Steelshaper's Gift or Open the Armory or both. The cat is painfully slow at doing what it does.

I'd also find room for Sram, Senior Edificer and Umezawa's Jitte
