@SynergyBuild: White knighting is when you are up in arms to defend something that didn't ask for you to defend it. At least that's been my conception of the term when I hear it being used. As for the "real EDH player" comment, I recognize I'm not perfect and people who do what you did get under my skin the same way religious preachers shouting at college students about their sins and how they should atone would get to me, thus it makes me have an agitated emotional reaction that gets in the way of trying to be concise and logical in an argument. To clarify, based on what you have displayed, you're not a real EDH player, you're a competitive Magic player who happens to play in a format that was not designed to be competitive. If this was a competitive Modern deck your comments would of felt more appropriate based on the stereotype of modern players.

@SynergyBuild: Your white knighting the competitive hub is going to make you an enemy of the very format. You're being extraordinarily toxic purely by commenting in the fashion in which you've been commenting. You're not an authority on commander and you will never get anyone to rally for you when you come off as snide and superior. I feel you misunderstand what the point of commander truly is by thinking it is okay to dictate how people want to play, what people see within their decks, and how they want to go about describing it. You have no right to it so its best you do your own thing and leave people alone. As for my "hypocrisy", you really show your colors when you can not understand that a person can recognize their deck is competitive within their meta and not competitive within a small margin of what is accepted on a professional, unlimited budget meta. You then proceed to follow up using this as a bases for a rant. I am not impressed.
@xxSkedz24xx: Thank you for being an understanding sport. You sound like a real EDH player.

@SynergyBuild: Considering how efficiently this deck runs in my competitive meta and I have won with this deck every single time I brought it to my local store's competition, I find it ridiculous someone would have to purchase those expensive cards to fix their and base. I have ran into no issues. The deck is designed to be a Gitrog deck with its land base making it far more fun and interesting than pulling these multi card combos. I will not be changing the tag simply because as far as this deck and what I can assume is going to be the competitive meta of most local gaming stores, this is very competitive.
I have enough win cons in the deck. I appreciate your suggestions and some will be duly noted but anything that isn't a creature is less likely to be ran purely for that reason. Deathrite Shaman does not work at all in this deck or my meta. All those mana dorks make for dead draw 75% of the time as I tend to get this deck running with only three or four mana at any given time. Sylvan Library is a good call but a lot of that slow draw doesn't work for this deck. It runs heavily on ETB effects. Also I may be missing something but all those combos you mentioned don't look like actual win conditions based on how you explained them. I don't want to run that many cards that are only good for very specific combos (I already feel I have too many of those).
tldr; this is a fun deck that runs very smoothly in the typical paper Magic competitive format I feel most local gaming store level competitions would be at. It has not lost since its conception 6+ months ago. It is not a netdeck cEDH deck, cause its actually fun.

DrkNinja: Those are some amazing recommendations. I do want to know which cards you feel are the best to cut for some of these as I'm new to voltron. I ran a bunch of control creatures to kind of help maintain a board state in my meta which is usually 1v1 or 3 player. I own everything you mentioned bar Replenish, Scourglass, Leonin Abunas, and Spirit Loop.

You must have a pretty hardcore meta for a deck this competitively synergistic. There isn't much I could suggest to improve this deck as it stands. Its very out of my element of deck building to go multiplayer competitive where as my meta is mostly 1v1 or 3 player games.

Looking for critique on my first attempt at a semi-competitive Sram deck that mixes the equipments and auras in in a reasonable portion while still able to handle a lot of aggression from opponents.
