Enchantress-esque cards for artifacts
Posted on May 10, 2018, 10:42 p.m. by luther
So, I am sitting here staring at the beautiful art for Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and it hits me... an equipment "enchantress" deck for edh.
My main questions are, are there any similar effects that I am missing, and Who should be my commander for this beast?

For commander I would personally recommend Ruhan of the Fomori. A 7/7 for and could very much benefit from leading an Equipment deck if nothing else.
As for suggestions regarding looting type effects I dug up Compulsion, Burning Inquiry, Desperate Ravings, Merfolk Looter, Urza’s Tome, and Customs Depot to name a few off the top of my noodle. I must say that alongside these effects Library of Leng is an all-star.
Hope this helped, even if it's slighlty

I am on the Akiri, Line-Slinger + ??? Gameplan I think. As far as the looting and draw, I want it to be incidental from casting my equips like the ones I mentioned. If I find more looting ones that I like though, I will certainly add in Library of Leng. Thanks for the comments guys!

I am thinking jeskai will be the way to go. Mono white doesn't have enough of what I want, but there are 3 great white cards for this plan (sram, paladin, jeskai ascendancy).

There are some solid options for Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, which include:
Those should be a good start if you stick with Izzet.

I kind of like Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest as commander for this list. Artifact storm beatdown seems fun. That or as suggested, Akiri, Line-Slinger + Kraum, Ludevic's Opus for even more card advantage.

Soulblade Djinn, Monastery Mentor, Strongarm Monk, Skywise Teachings, Zephyr Scribe, Quiet Contemplation, Goblinslide, Firebrand Archer, Golem's Heart, Gonti's Aether Heart, Leering Emblem, Myrsmith, Riddlesmith, Golem Foundry, Artificer's Assistant, Efficient Construction, Embersmith, Reckless Fireweaver
I tossed some off-color cards in there just because they were so on topic . Happy gathering :)

Don't forget to include ways to recur artifacts if you're gonna be looting. Dumping a whole bunch of artifacts, then playing Open the Vaults sounds too fun to ignore.

MagicalHacker, I don't mind Open the Vaults, but I think I might like things that will put my yard back into the library like Elixir of Immortality since it is an artifact that makes it so I can continue to draw cards without losing. It may still snag a spot since it is still pretty spicy

MagicalHacker this might just be something for me to gatherer search myself, but do you happen to have a list of graveyard to library shuffle effects?

That linky link gave me a real nice piece Drafna's Restoration

Sigarda's Aid is a must. Nothing more satisfying than flashing in equipment directly onto an attacking creature.

Flashing in 1/3 of my deck and attaching it directly to my attacking commander!
