Tzefick - It is worse, that was the point, first strike and lifelink would be far too powerful. I see your point about stuff like Colossus Hammer , but there's plenty more cards in Magic that can cause a giant swingy boi out of nowhere, like Magnetic Theft , and especially Sigarda's Aid . Personally, I don't think it's too powerful, and as Mcat1999 said, vigilance is great for a voltron deck with this guy. Also, you said that vigilance is good if you can confidently attack, but equipments will make it much easier to do so. Thanks for the feedback!

Personally, I think Vigilance + Haste is worse.
Vigilance is the king of stale combat. You only swing with creatures if they have little to no chance of dying or can take out opposing creatures. Thus vigilance only becomes useful when you can confidently attack. And if you can attack with your vigilance creatures, it either means your opponent was tapped and defenseless or that your creatures dwarf the opposing creatures - meaning the opponent has very little opportunity to attack into you because you now always have vigilant creatures ready to defend.
Yeah, this is mostly a rant about how Vigilance is a pretty bad mechanic, but it becomes worse when coupled with mechanics that increase stats - such as equipment / auras.
Now add haste and there's also a lot of unexpected burst damage that can happen a bit out of nowhere. The previous mention of Colossus Hammer is the epitome of this problem. It provides a very massive stat boost, and Halgrin grants the magnet, haste and vigilance to have you smack down your opponent with a hasted 12/12 that is also on the defense. All for the price of .
Perhaps you could consider not providing keywords to the equipped creatures but rather an active ability or some other benefit. I think adding keywords can quickly lead to one of white's archetypes; keyword soup, and that can sometimes be difficult to balance.

Personally I would make these swaps:
War Screecher -> Inquisitor's Flail
Bulwark Giant -> Blackblade Reforged
Herald of the Sun -> Strata Scythe
Parhelion II -> Mask of Memory
Heart-Piercer Bow -> Hero's Blade
Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII -> Captain's Claws
Weapon Rack -> Argentum Armor
Diamond Knight -> Maul of the Skyclaves
Serra's Guardian -> Spectral Steel
Astral Drift -> Colossus Hammer
Golden Egg -> Gold Myr
Heavy Mattock -> Ogre's Cleaver
Sparring Construct -> Angelic Armaments
Raise the Alarm -> Brawler's Plate
Battlefield Promotion -> Goldvein Pick
Flutterfox -> Armored Skyhunter
Also it looks like you forgot to add your lands

You might consider these: Colossus Hammer , Ogre's Cleaver , Armored Skyhunter , Stonehewer Giant , Gold Myr (2-drop ramp gets Balan out a turn faster, increasing your damage output. personally I'd pull out 9 lands and replace them with ramp pieces), Mind Stone , Sol Ring , Everflowing Chalice , Guardian Idol , Hedron Crawler , Mask of Memory , Argentum Armor , War Room , Bonders' Enclave , Buried Ruin , Cathedral of War

I honestly dont know for certain about prismari command... at a glance Faithless Looting + Coalition Relic + Shock + Smelt seems enticing for drawing and fueling delve and the treasure token may find a good use for something... but i dont know for sure..
It seems good enough to explore in grixis maybe alongside/split with Kolaghan's Command .... I dont know how prevalent "Hammer time" Colossus Hammer decks are exactly but I keep hearing they are gaining popularity....
or maybe prismari command is more suited for a Storm type build over control?

Colossus Hammer now gives you a 13/13 for what costs in total .
to cast, to get the token.
Token is a 2/2 who becomes a 3/3 with first strike and lifelink. Then +10/+10.
Even any of the Swords gives you 5/5s for .
Just feels incredibly powerful for a 3cmc is all.
I love it. The card is amazing. Just the CMC feels either too low or not restrictive enough.
