Crow_Umbra Thank you for your input! do like Frodo, Determined Hero instead of Naomi, Pillar of Order and then I was already thinking about getting rid of Sunforger so I threw in Inquisitorial Rosette. Also great catch with those two copies of Crackling Doom, replaced it with Generous Gift. Lastly I took out my single fetch land for Conjurer's Mantle.

Really apperciate the input and suggestions!!

If you're open to Universes Beyond cards, I'd suggest replacing Naomi, Pillar of Order with Frodo, Determined Hero. You don't really have a high enough concentration of Enchantments for Naomi to trigger consistently enough. Frodo also has an ETB and on attack trigger, which would allow him to cheat those Equip costs.

I think you could probably cut a land or Armory of Iroas, since your mana curve is fairly low, and add in Conjurer's Mantle.

Although your build is budget, a few more expensive (and off-Samurai theme) upgrades to consider are Forge Anew, Sigarda's Aid (excellent for cheating equip costs), Leonin Shikari, and Puresteel Paladin. Puresteel Paladin is getting a reprint in Commander Masters, so it should hopefully go down in price a bit.

Hi there! Have you had a chance to play this deck irl at all yet? Do you have a set budget in mind per card, or overall for the deck? I have a few suggestions for potential additions as well as some likely swaps:

  • Sigarda's Aid - Super helpful to cheat Equip costs, as they can get mana intensive

  • Dismantling Wave / Wear / Tear - Can maybe replace Austere Command as a slightly faster options to deal with multiple artifacts/enchantments at once, and also because you can likely afford to run 1-2 fewer board wipes.

  • Forge Anew - Some more excellent new equipment support.

  • Frodo, Determined Hero - Excellent attacker that can skip on equip costs for himself.

  • Generous Gift - Is a versatile removal option since it can also destroy lands. The 3/3 Elephant token is fairly irrelevant in the grand scheme of an EDH game.

  • Promise of Loyalty - Can likely replace Slash the Ranks. I've played this in a Voltron Aura deck a couple years ago, and found it to be super helpful since it kept some heat off me while I swung away as everyone else was in rebuild mode. This is also a bit better than Slash the Ranks since the sacrifice removal gets around Indestructible, and destroy effects don't

I think you can remove Winds of Rath since your deck isn't really running any Aura enchantments to have your creatures benefit from.

Welcome to TappedOut! I have some suggestions for equipment support that could be helpful. The pieces aren't super pricey, but may be, depending on your budget. There's some cool new equipment and equipment support in the new Lord of the Rings set that might be worth a look:

Stuff that's not from the LotR set, but still worth checking out:
