Battle Mastery has always seemed like a good aura card to me for that double strike.

Holy Mantle and Unquestioned Authority gives your commander protection from creatures which does make it pretty much unblockable

soly on The Seeker of Heaven [Bruna, EDH]

Re: Winds of Rath, I have never found myself needing to wipe while Bruna is out. When Bruna is out and suited up, I can typically just go to combat, get a kill, and pass the turn. Bruna has natural Flying, and typically she'll pick up Trample from Eldrazi Conscription or Unblockable from Steel of the Godhead. Lack of evasion can be a problem with just Battle Mastery and Corrupted Conscience, but this is pretty rare in my experience since I typically have to tutor for at least one aura.

Totem Armor is a good way to get around card disadvantage from losing enchanted creatures, but they're also one-and-done affairs, and for the most part the extra numbers and keywords are just not relevant when they're attached to Bruna - none of them have the magical "lethal with one other damage aura" ability shared by the Big Three and Auramancer's Guise.

The one really interesting one is indeed Eel Umbra due to the protective nature of Flash, but in practice I don't think it's really different from a counterspell in that slot, so I ran that instead.

As far as making my other creatures bigger goes (this goes for both Faith Unbroken and the Umbras), bigger creatures just aren't scary when the entire table knows I'm aiming to suit up Bruna for the kill anyway. I'd rather keep my creatures as blockers and make them hard to remove in the sense of Fog Bank being able to block for days on end. The indestructibility auras (Indestructibility and Shielded By Faith) provide this, as well as Spectra Ward and cards with Protection from creatures like Unquestioned Authority.

Lastly, as far as creatures go, I just don't have enough of them to suit up. Right now I've noticed that the deck is both kinda slow and kinda vulnerable to creature combat at all stages of the game, so I'm probably going to board in Propaganda and some nice tutors, including my newly reprinted friend Idyllic Tutor. Maybe also add Drift of Phantasms.

I don't like the 0 cost equipments much. Yes, they draw a card, but no, they don't help you win. They're good in a storm shell. One that capitalizes on Aetherflux Reservoir . I'd suggest Loxodon Warhammer , Gryff's Boon and other cards that are either cheap and good or strong and help a long, 5-player game.

Unquestioned Authority and Executioner's Hood are both great cards that can help kill any player. They're better than just having a color specific hate card.

Darksteel Mutation is great removal, and an aura that'll draw a card off Sram.

You are one of the few colors with a lot of boardwipes. And since only one player is blue, you'll usually not have any counterspells in your way. Single Combat is great for a equipment deck. Austere Command and Winds of Abandon are one sided boardwipes with your deck. Citywide Bust may work well depending on the other decks.

Cards to cut: Blessing of the Nephilim , Scourge of the Nobilis , Faith Unbroken , Eidolon of Countless Battles , Xenagos, God of Revels are all great cards, but not the best option for Uril. Uril already pumps himself, and protects himself, so the only thing he needs is evasion. Trample, protection, unblockable, flying, and anything similar. I do like Ancestral Mask and All That Glitters because they're cheap for what they do.

Suggestions: Unquestioned Authority , Sterling Grove , Sphere of Safety . Protection is very valuable. So is shroud for enchantments that doubles as a tutor. It's nice to have a pillow fort so you won't be attacked for having few creatures out, too.
