SirChris39 at least you're not running Fireshrieker anymore lol. I love it in any other voltron deck, but 99.99% of the time you'll have 2 equipment when she hits the battlefield.

A lot of your discard effects seem to happen when your creatures deal combat damage to a player. Have you considered adding Fireshrieker to double up those triggers?

I wouldn't recommend Fireshrieker Balan has double strike virtually every time you play her. I'd recommend Inquisitor's Flail Conqueror's Flail or Hammer of Nazahn instead. I like your build, it's got some decent synergy. I did notice you left out Path to Exile, and I'd probably suggest Mangara, the Diplomat, Land Tax, Teferi's Protection, Flawless Maneuver, Prowler's Helm, Bloodforged Battle-Axe (which is crazy with Balan because you can use her ability at instant speed to equip the copies), Heliod's Intervention, Inspiring Statuary, Godsend, Heartstone, just to name a few things to consider. I do like your take on this deck though, it's very interesting

I really should be running Gauntlet of Power. I also forgot that card existed.

I also really like Champion's Helm.

Blackblade Reforged, Fireshrieker, Inquisitor's Flail, and Strata Scythe all just make the equipped creature a big beater and don't offer any forms of card advantage. But I suppose if I can finish my opponents off with commander damage, then that's what matters.

Avenging Huntbonder is interesting, too! As you say, it's not an equipment, but it does wield my other swords well and double strike on an 8/8 is nasty.

It looks like I've got some stuff to try.

Thanks for the recommendations!

Cool deck dude!

So some equipment that would rather have instead of body and mind in a mono-white deck that are under the $40 price tag:

Blackblade Reforged Champion's Helm Fireshrieker Inquisitor's Flail Strata Scythe and although not technically an equipment the Avenging Huntbonder is a sick card that I wish i had a home for.

If you have enough double strike enablers, mill 10 suddenly becomes mill 20, then suddenly milling out is not that far away.

True Conviction, Fireshrieker, Duelist's Heritage are all cards that are more than decent to run in mono white anyway, combining them with combat damage triggers for double value is a cool strategy. Other swords are probably still better to run, but you can defend any "whenever this/equipped creature deals combat damage to a player" inclusion in your deck this way. Green and blue are very relevant protection colors to go unblockable at at least one player on the table, even though they don't protect from much removal (although Beast Within and Rapid Hybridization are very prevalent in most decks that can run them)

There's a possibility for a very cool, albeit suboptimal, deck to include Body & Mind.

And yeah, run graveyard hate, even if you decide not to run the sword.

Cloudchaser.Kestrel on Wait, why did you just pick up your entire deck?

what about Sword of the Paruns for a double up on infinite mana?

and what about Leyline of Abundance to turn Llanowar Tribe into an infinite mana sink as well?

and Incubation Druid or Gyre Sage instead of Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic for redundancy on the theme?

Personally I wouldn't splash blue in the deck. You want devotion and blue can't give you anything green can't in this case. A Rogue's Passage is a better Aether Tunnel - Helix Pinnacle isn't that much worse than Laboratory Maniac

I would also throw in as many x spells as possible. I'm willing to bet that in this deck - steelbane hydra is going to be better than Nature's Claim if you have the budget for a Mistcutter Hydra I'd replace Fireshrieker and Declare Dominance with them as finishers.
