9-lives I'd start by ditching the Pharagax Giant and Surtland Flinger, both are a LOT of mana and basically do nothing (the Pharagax Giant is literally just a vanilla 5/5, and Surtland Flinger is too slow to do anything reliably). After that I'd ditch the Electropotence (it requires waaay too much mana to activate, has a poor payoff, and does nothing on its own), and some number of Open the Armory (you already have a ton of ways to grab Colossus Hammer)

I have a deck on Arena that runs off a similar concept, but a bit more reliably.
I think the combo you really want here is either Goblin Gaveleer (which I see you already have a couple of), or Fireblade Charger, then run 4x Colossus Hammers. All of these are 1-mana spells which come out very quickly.
Then, use Resolute Strike (both of them are Warriors) to equip the Hammer for free to either the Gaveleer or the Charger & attack (this works as early as Turn 2 if you have the correct cards in hand).
If they're still standing after 1 attack, then on the next turn you simply attack again and/or follow up with a Thud (which again, kudos on already using) and that's Game Over. As early as Turn 2, but VERY reliably by Turn 3.
The Fireblade Charger's ability actually causes a double-trigger if you Thud him, and the Gaveleer with his Trample make him also a good target.
Best of all, none of these cards are particularly expensive to purchase singles of, making getting 4x copy playsets extremely easy (and worthwhile imo).
Either way, tossing a +1 on here for you already finding some good cards to combo with. I hope my suggestion is helpful in turning this into a real monster (I know my optimized Arena deck is just brutally effective).

Niko9 Slow down the table with stax pieces and then basically Hammertime it up with your evasive commander. I need to update this, Lizard Blades with Colossus Hammer makes Rograkh very lethal very quickly indeed. I might look for some more Sunforger-based wincon too because it is mostly combat damage right now.

I would also consider a transforming sideboard (where you change up your path to victory) instead of a traditional one. You have something resembling hammertime as an option, since Colossus Hammer is always an option when running Puresteel Paladin, especially with all the card draw going on.

DragonWolf420 - While I agree that I don't think this set will remotely approach Eldraine levels of power (though we still have more spoilers to go), I think you are vastly underestimating Boseiju's power. This is a land that comes into play untapped (so zero cost for deck inclusion) that is an un-counterable, can't be discarded to targeted discard, instant speed answer to just about every problematic permanent in Modern that isn't named Ragavan. Just take a look at some of the cards/decks this card single-handedly stops: Amulet-Titan (Amulet of Vigor/Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle), Hammer Time (Urza's Saga, Colossus Hammer), Afinity, Charbelcher, Mono-red (Damage free Eidolon of the Great Revel removal), Urza's Saga (deserves a second mention), Blood Moon, the Leylines, Pithing Needle, Chalice of the Void, and there is more. The card is nuts. I think both Boseiju and the slightly weaker Otawara will see extensive play in every format that they are legal in.
Anyways, Eater of Virtue looks like it could be a solid inclusion in keyword focused decks
Twisted Embrace is a really interestingly designed card, though definitely geared toward Limited.
Debt to the Kami is an upgraded version of Pharika's Libation which I am all for.
Farewell is interesting. I think 4-5 years ago this would be lauded as the best white board wipe or close second to Austere Command (exile is a double edged sword), but I am not sure where it fits into the Commander format today. I don't think it will edge out Austere Command, Tragic Arrogance or Vanquish the Horde in any white deck I am running. It's definitely strong, but I think it is a few years too late.

sassybill1540 :) Thanks for taking a look at my desk. I actually started making some changes late last night before I went to bed. I'll try to answer your questions and suggestions as best as I can!
Robe of Stars & Godsend - I haven't had to much trouble with it. A lot of it has come down to me not having protection from white in my hand when I had them. However, I tend to favor Robe of Stars just due to the phase ability to dodge wipes or other things. The Godsend I tend to agree with you on. I was thinking of cutting that card while looking through the deck last night.
Odric, Lunarch Marshal - I actually just cut that card last night from my physical deck. As for the Raksha Golden Cub part I originally kept him just to buff the tokens if I got lucky and got him out. Just equip him with something easy and let him be an anthem as it were. However, after thinking about it you may be right. I might be better off slotting another creature or another weapon in his slot.
Blackblade Reforged & Colossus Hammer - I was curious if you kept those out of your deck due to it making Kemba a bigger threat/target. The extra damage from it seems good but I could see where you are coming from. Perhaps another weapon with more utility would be better in those spots. The hammer I kept in there originally just because of the ways I had to cheat equip costs in the deck. But, it may be better to swap it too for a utility weapon.
Mask of Avacyn - Your take on this surprised me. I was looking for anything I could find that would protect Kemba. Hexproof, indestructible really anything! I hadn't considered swapping the greaves around like that. I forgot about the equip cost being 0 rather than 1 like the swiftfoot boots. I could possibly make that change as well.
Paradise Mantle - This one is surprisingly good just for two reasons for me. It's an early piece of equipment like you were suggesting and the original plan I had for it was to put it on Raksha. However, if I didn't have him I usually just put it on one of my cat tokens and turned them into a mana rock.
Mentor of the Meek & Welcoming Vampire I had considered finding a spot to put Mentor in. I kind of like Welcoming just due to it being a nice quick 'free' trigger. But, I could use Mentor to help with the draw really. I could easily find a spot to free up.
And, yes Ashnod's Altar and Martyr's Cause have helped A LOT with mine. The altar is great because then you're quite literally generating a sacrifice sol ring every turn depending on your equipment count. More cats is more mana! More mana is more swords! The Martyr's is great for the items I mentioned for the big damage that you need to stop. I've always called it the "Get down Mr. President" enchantment. I highly recommend it in any Kemba deck.
