I hear Odric & Oketra are GREAT keyword pals :)

Haha, nice. I made a Saskia deck mostly inspired by lunacy... Part of the founding theory was MAKING people play crap instead of holding on to it then waiting to combo out after a boardstate reset.

Champion's Helm is another card I dabble with sometimes, but the price has been horridly jacked on it lately

I like it, from personal experience Mask of Avacyn has been a solid investment every time... For some reason I keep pulling it lately. I also pulled Explorer's Scope theoretically it should be solid, & I do run plenty of lands but it just proved to be too low impact, & usually when I play a gamble type of card I like the potential payoff to be a little higher

I have a Saskia deck that's all about topdecking it would play hilariously in a multiplayer game with a deck like this... Probably would wipe out the more "wait to play" types of blue decks & leave something like this to butt heads at the end of the game. I love forcing blue players to topdeck & play something lame like a counterspells it brings me great joy

Fellow Sisay player here, my meta is also particularly brutal (which I like...I'm not big on making little meta-rules because I perceive something as unfair). It is neat to see the different directions these Sisay decks take depending on their meta. i.e. my deck is much more redundant on the protection front due to a HEALTHY (maybe unhealthy) dose of spot removal happy meta & a little less redundant on the mana dorks (there are perks to both as I understand) -- now that my meta understands Paradox engine creates an unstoppable storm very quickly I have found that additional protection to be key, . I digress.
I really dig the Oketra the True addition. I don't swing wide much, but I occasionally use Odric, Lunarch Marshal, especially if any attempted combos get blown up. Oketra offers me access to searchable double strike, indestructible, & vigilance (if I use its ability once) that is pretty good ability value there. I find the other odric to be too redundant & restrictive, he needs to be attacking with several other creatures for his effect to take place whereas I can give an entire army lifelink & flying the same turn odric, lunarch marshal comes out if I already have Dromoka in. I've found with that odric if you are spreading the ability love that much you don't really need unblockable creatures they usually effectively are already unblockable from a combination of abilities and often protected as well

I'm surprised you don't have more cards that take advantage of free-to-cast topdecking... Omen Machine & others like it have been a real bundle of fun for me

Hmm... to be totally honest Argentum Armor is a bit of a 'pet card' for me. Although with Stonehewer Giant, Sigarda's Aid, & I'm going to copy you, and put a tap-to-equip utility creature in instead of Palladium Myr -- It can quickly become a back breaker for opponents.
One way in which I've decimated people is cheating it out/unexpectedly equipping it & then using the Sram-beef (+6/6) to commander damage someone out while destroying someone else's crap. So it does add that important aspect of being able to spread the hate a little more, which can be important when my Sram deck tends to focus on one player at a time.
That being said it is not COMPLETELY a pet card. I have played 2 games where it figured in as a pivotal piece. I run less removal than you so the destruction of ANY permanent added to Sram slapping opponents with recurring removal makes a lot of sense for me.

Auriok Windwalker seems pretty solid, it directly addresses what I gripe about with how it is nice to have extra creature bodies out... but at the same time trying to focus on beefing up Sram (while offering an extra body in the event of Sram hate). I think those free equipper creatures will test out quite strong for you.
April 12, 2017 7:47 p.m.
Surprisingly, Moonsilver Spear has been quite strong, primarily if I have something like Sig's aid in play to deal with the prohibitive equip cost. I was playing against Atraxa (worried about deathtouch) when I realized that spear also gives first strike.
But, yeah I may have to look @ more lifelink to buy time against the swing wide stuff. My meta tends to play very little smashy creature heavy stuff, & certainly not much creature heavy agro (1 Ezuri/infect)

I probably need to steal Armored Ascension from your list as well. Let me know how the alternate win cards work for you, last game I was finding myself fielding what few creatures I have but doing nothing with them since I wanted to be wacking people with commander dmg... May have just been a luxury or luck.... I've had extremely lucky Sram draws lately
April 11, 2017 10:31 a.m.
Well (the potential is there), but so far I haven't had too many issues with Sram getting hated out of the game. Usually a boardwipe happens in my group once the overall boardstate is in need of managing... by that point I have some sort of indestructible equipped, or everyone else is getting impacted harder than me (that low CMC on Sram is great). I've found that he is more resilient to blue decks with return to hand effects than any other commander I've ever played he is also great at getting played prior to counterspells. Last time someone overloaded cyclonic rift it ACTUALLY benefitted me because it costed a whopping 2 cmc to put him back out then I played a few more equipment... Basically other players bouncing him just gave me extra card draw.

Hmm, surprised you got rid of Stonehewer Giant, he tends to wrap up games for me... Usually I prefer the ultra-relevance of search & free equip over 1 card draw, especially when it is 1w cost, you should be able to cast an equipment that turn to still get your draw, & that is mana you won't be spending on equip... but there is that hefty 5cmc dead turn for him, so maybe that is where he has fallen short for you.
But you did title the change as "added aggro" - responder probably is better for that in many ways.

BLARGH!! No one listens when I say Multani, Maro-Sorcerer with this... Seriously 6 cmc shrouded mega critter that produces a ridiculous amount of mana with Selvala - moreso the more opponents you have. I have broken people with that combo. Also, he is protected from targeted effects making 1/2 of the combo quite resilient... Also, probably less awesome but still worth considering Gyre Sage
April 7, 2017 11:46 p.m.
I found that Conviction was kind of a lame duck for the cost to cycle it in when I almost always cycle in to something more useful for 2-3 cmc anyway.
For me "Kaldra's" junk is more of a fun option if you run a lot of boardwipes in there, especially Worldslayer otherwise, meh... I use it because I do tend to draw a Kaldra item with a permanent wipe card & a tutor
