Artifact — Equipment
Equipped creature gets +6/+6.
Whenever equipped creature attacks, destroy target permanent.
Equip (: Attach this to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery. This enters the battlefield unattached and stays on the battlefield if the creature this card is attached to leaves the battlefield.)

Argentum Armor is the best Equipment to take advantage of effects that dodge costs. I almost never pay for the full 12 mana for it up front.
It's enormous P/T boost and destruction trigger have kept it relevant for over a decade, and I don't see that ever changing. The more cards that get printed that dodge costs, the better it becomes.

I had Argentum Armor in here but waiting till 6 mana without artifact mana to ramp made it tough. Decided on Quietus Spike as the nail for my hammers and 1/2 the mana exhaustion for the benefit. I've been trimming from 80 to get down to more competitive deck size. But I think I like Akiri enough to run another in the deck. The hobgoblin might be on borrowed time as I really want the engine to be ready for redcap to churn. I always think about the long game, this deck I need to break that marathon mentality and try to get it done by turn 5 or struggle with the power cards turning the tide. If I tinkled black for infect or swapped spike for Grafted Exoskeleton I'd have 10 poison counters before 20 health would hammer out.
More to do, any opinions are good! Aaron

Contempt gets destroyed, then the creature gets bounced at end of combat.
Both Argentum Armor and Contempt trigger at the same time (Contempt's current Oracle text has been updated to say "When enchanted creature attacks..."), and because your opponent is the active player their Armor trigger goes onto the stack first and then your Contempt trigger goes onto the stack on top of it. Contempt's trigger resolves but nothing happens yet because it just creates a delayed trigger to bounce the creature "at end of combat". The Armor's trigger then resolves and destroys Contempt. At end of combat, after damage and everything, the delayed trigger from Contempt will trigger and the creature will be bounced. Contempt won't return to your hand because it's moved to the graveyard.
Even if Contempt was destroyed by something else in response to its trigger going onto the stack, the creature would still get bounced, because removing the source of a triggered ability that is already on the stack doesn't remove the ability from the stack.
The fact that Contempt is no longer enchanting the creature doesn't matter because the bounce trigger just references "that creature" who triggered the ability (the current Oracle text has been simplified to just reference "it"), not a creature specifically currently enchanted by it.

My opponent has a creature in play that is equipped with Argentum Armor and I have enchanted it with Contempt... when he attacks with this creature, does he get to destroy Contempt before it will bounce Contempt and the creature back to their owners' hands? Or do they get bounced before Contempt is destroyed? Does one of us get to choose the order, or does his turn priority put Argentum's trigger on the stack first, then Contempt, resolving Contempt first...? Thanks for the help!

Halvar would indeed be okay in the deck, but there are problems with other suggestions:
-Brass Knuckles is very much useless in the deck, Balan already gains double strike on her own
-kinda the same with Helm of the Host, not much use copying Balan
-Avarice Amulet is too easily lost

This is a cool deck! A few suggestions:
- Halvar, God of Battle Flip is a fun creature that can give double strike and also can be an equipment if need be.
- Argentum Armor is reusable removal
- Avarice Amulet is extra card draw
- Brass Knuckles will give double strike
- Your commander can help you get around Helm of the Host's equip cost
- And finally, Kaldra Compleat would be devastating(for your opponents) to put in this deck
