Legendary Artifact — Equipment
Equipped creature gets +3/+3
Whenever equipped creature blocks or is blocked by one or more creatures you may exile one of them. Your opponents can't cast cards with the same name of a card exiled by this.
Equip (: Attach to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery.)

Thank you for the ideas.
I have some of the Kor Outfitter - I had already been thinking to swap out the Ethercaste. I liked them because they were another artifact creature like the Esper Sentinel and could be immune to both Archmage's Charm and Wrenn and Six, and I'm not really a fan of the Esper Sentinel anyway.

Of course! Again awesome job with coming up with this for your friend. I would just add that maybe you'd want to consider getting rid of the warrior subtheme, only because you could utilize more slots for heavier equipment and aura spells. If you want some inspiration (not saying it's the exact way to go) check out my Jor-Kadeen deck when you get the chance. Actually looking at your commander here, I should probably think of slotting him in my 99... you're running some neat dwarves here too!
Your commander already draws you cards which is awesome, but maybe Stone Haven Outfitter can also be nifty.

Hmm, for purely more swords how about
Godsend is kind of swordy
Icingdeath, Frost Tyrant is a dragon who becomes a sword
and the biggest of them all Worldslayer
But really, this is awesome, and I'm sure your friend will appreciate it a ton : )

I have a Situation that bugged me for a while now: I know that a creature with protection from white can't be equipped by white equipment (E.g. Godsend) But what happens if i have my Eight-and-a-Half-Tails equipped with a colorless equipment (E.g. Sword of Hearth and Home ), my opponent casts Disenchant on the sword and I give the sword protection from white? It will be protected from the Removalspell, but will it fall of my creature? When i looked up the rules,I only found the following:
702.16d A permanent with protection can’t be equipped by Equipment that have the stated quality or fortified by Fortifications that have the stated quality. Such Equipment or Fortifications become unattached from that permanent as a state-based action, but remain on the battlefield. (See rule 704, “State-Based Actions.”)
Thanks in Advance :)

It's important to note that having either Sword of War and Peace or Sword of Hearth and Home makes a few of your cards useless unless you enchant other things. Protection from white makes your white Auras and Godsend fall off the doggo. If you can ever get your hands on a sword that given protection from blue, I'd suggest slotting that in. I'd recommend taking out Godsend and the white buff Auras. Probably use some of LeonSpires' recommendations. Or take the chance and just accept that you don't need those Auras after you get your swords. You could always just throw them on the Steelshaper or the Skyhunter.

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.

I like that you're utilizing the cat tokens so much. My list just durdles with them as blockers and not much else.
A lot of your deck has the standard Kemba stuff, which is fantastic. Your lands, sorceries, enchantments, and instants are all worthy and I couldn't think of anything to replace from those.
Creatures and artifacts had some thing I would suggest reconsidering due to CMC or general clumsiness (note I may be missing something, so take anything I say with a grain of salt):
Blackblade Reforged is comparable to Strata Scythe and either one can be better than the other in certain situations. I'm not convinced "giant buff with no evasion or anything else" is good enough for Kemba players, however. On that note, Colossus Hammer.
Mask of Avacyn just feels clunky with the equip costs, the shroud from Lightning Greaves is annoying to work around sometimes but it feels so good to turn two Greaves, turn three Kemba, attack. With Leonin Shikari you can always shuffle them around at instant speed.
