Trusty Machete Discussion

This is a great deck. If you want to stick with the equipment theme, you could sub in Goblin Gaveleer for Monastery Swiftspear . I would also try to find a better budget option than Inventor's Goggles - maybe Trusty Machete , Magebane Armor , or Grafted Wargear .

Vicious Shadows actually doesn't work (nor does Stalking Vengeance, and for the same reason), because when a creature (or in this instance a token) doesn't die when it's exiled. I would suggest Warstorm Surge instead. Which I just noticed was in the maybeboard. Speaking of cards in the maybeboard, Swiftfoot Boots is probably better than Lightning Greaves here because shroud makes Valduk untargetable for equip costs. This would normally not be a problem; just equip it to a different creature for 0 mana. However with a semi-creatureless brew like this you'd have to do all your equipping on the postcombat main phase.

I might suggest some of the human-based equipment from OG Innistrad; Avacyn's Collar, Bladed Bracers, Butcher's Cleaver, Heirloom Blade could be really cool (and you could run a human or two for good measure), Sharpened Pitchfork is nice, though first strike is kinda useless, Silver-Inlaid Dagger is AWESOME, and Slayer's Plate may get some work done.

Some generally good equipments include Champion's Helm for hexproof, Chitinous Cloak to force opponents to make tough blocker choices, honestly General's Kabuto may be worth is as the ultimate protection card, you could consider Kitesail for evasion, Konda's Banner would be great and pump your tokens (and yes it would give Valduk +2/+2), Kusari-Gama would be a serious 'don't block me or I fuck you' effect, Ogre's Cleaver is honestly insane, Pariah's Shield, though costly, more or less makes you untouchable, Pennon Blade is worth the cost, the classic Short Sword, Sigiled Sword of Valeron is dece, Skullclamp is OH MY GOD, Strata Scythe is equally insane, the swords are famously insanely powerful, Trusty Machete is okay, Vorrac Battlehorns is an easy way to win fast, and Vulshok Battlegear and Vulshok Morningstar are decent.

And yes, I did slog through every equipment in Magic history to find those.

Props to Heliogabale for some good ideas on cuts. I might add No-Dachi, seems a little overcosted (also it's worth noting Mask of Avacyn has the same mana specs for an arguably better effect), Skeleton Key is not going to do anything for very long, Valduk is probably going to be too big too fast to make use of first strike (@ Sparring Collar), Browbeat is 5 damage to an opponent for 3 mana. Realistically no one is going to let you draw 3 cards.

Sorry, this comment was a looong one.

SilverBlaze109 on Kor Equipment: Modern Competitive? (SFM Update)

I (also) run an Equipment deck. But, I run Boros for Goblin Gaveleer. Looking at your deck, I like it. I suggest a playset of Siguarda's Aid. In my experience, I've found that 15 creatures is too few of a number. I suggest 18-20. You might consider more cheap equipment like Silver-Inlaid Dagger or Trusty Machete. You might want the Dagger if you get Mirran Crusader. Prying Blade is also good for mana ramp with Kor Duelist. Overall, I see a problem with consistency as you have too many 1-ofs. But, I like the look of it. Take everything in this post with a grain of salt as you might have a better experience. Have Fun!

SilverBlaze109 on SUIT UP! - A White Weenie Equipment Deck

The swords are a good option. I suggest a playset of Kor Duelist. I suggest replacing Kor Outfitter with something extra copies of other cards due to it being only a one time thing. Siguarda's Aid is basically a free equip plus combat tricks. I wouldn't run Quest for the Holy Relic as it would be slow with only 19 creatures. In my experience, as a Boros Equipment player, with 19 creatures you don't cast 5 creatures and still have the Quest. Your experience might be different though. I would also get a playset of Bonesplitter as it is arguably the best, cheap equipment.Silver-Inlaid Dagger would be better over Trusty Machete due to the extra damage on certain creatures. Overall, you need to get playsets of the best cards to help with consistency. I do like how this deck looks. Great Job!

Puresteel adds a draw card element, but yeah, you might need a minimum of 8 equipment in the deck to make it effective. Perhaps some Trusty Machete or Bone Saw action is needed?

Snacrifice on Sram, Senior Edificer Voltron

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

shinobigarth on Rancor, Mycosynth Lattice, Bludgeon Brawl

Tag cards in your question: Rancor, Mycosynth Lattice, Bludgeon Brawl

Yes, it works like any other equipment. In this case, Mycosynth turns Rancor into an artifact enchantment aura, and BB turns it into an artifact enchantment aura equipment, with both abilities. When you move a Trusty Machete from one creature to another, does the +2/+1 stay on the first creature after its moved?
