This is a cool deck! A few suggestions:

As far as i know most Commanderdeck´s play around 32 Land´s + Manarocks. I think something like Sol Ring/Selesnya Cluestone/Selesnya Keyrune/Wildfield Borderpost/Talisman of Unity would be great, but that depend´s on your playstil. They also help a lot fixing your mana supply.

More importend for you to know, you can´t tutor Halvar, God of Battle  Flip with card´s like Open the Armory as you mentioned in "The Butter", because as long as Halvar is in your deck/graveyard/exil/hand, he only counts as it´s front side. Tutors will only see the cardtyps of Halvar. The other side of Halvar only appears the moment you cast it.

I like Sigarda's Aid, however Halvar, God of Battle  Flip does already and I feel in this particular build a body with the ability would benefit more.

I love your suggestions and yes I agree some of the creatures I thought were good but in hindsight weren't a good fit but some creatures like Stoneforge Mystic or Halvar, God of Battle  Flip are very valuable since I run a voltron style and they help get certain equipment or place them at instant speed if need be so I don't want to do just a creature free build.

EyelessStarfish Thanks for the feedback, glad you like the list! Aside from many of the swords that are especially expensive upgrades Bloodforged Battle-Axe and Commander's Plate are definitely on my priority list. Leonin Shikari and Halvar, God of Battle  Flip are also great cards. I just haven’t found myself ordering cards for a while.

I’d say the deck performs pretty well but my meta is varied, most of the time I manage to kill one player by turn 4or5 ish; sometimes even earlier. But more often than not I end up losing control of the game afterwards losing Sram or my key voltron pieces. Any advice on specific response/protection cards to finish off the last two players?

I really like this as a budget list, it plays very nice with the 0-drop equipments you already have. I think that if you were to add some of the more expensive options for the deck, Bonesplitter could be replaced by Bloodforged Battle-Axe. Commander's Plate is a very nice (but kind of expensive) inclusion, but I'm not sure what you'd replace it with. As far as creatures go, Leonin Shikari is a great addition because of equipment like Robe of Stars that allow your commander to evade incoming kill spells. Halvar, God of Battle  Flip also helps because getting double strike as consistent as possible seems important for the deck. Overall I really like this deck the way it is and it doesn't seem like it needs many of the expensive includes to be a powerful and fun casual deck.

plakjekaas on Oswald Fiddlebender plus Kaldheim Gods?

Transforming Dual-Faced Cards typically have the mana value of the front face (the backside doesn't show a mana value for those) maybe that's where the confusion arose.

The Kaldheim gods and their artifacts, and every other Modal Dual-Faced Card for that matter, have separate costs for the separate sides you can cast. When they're permanents, they only have the mana value of the displayed face.

Oswald Fiddlebender sacrificing a Sword of the Realms won't even register the Halvar, God of Battle  Flip that's printed on the other side, it will have sacrificed an artifact with mana value 2.

Sacrificing Edgar Markov's Coffin will count as an artifact of mana value 4, because it counts the mana value of the front side, Edgar, Charmed Groom  Flip.

Swebb87 on reflect damage & halvar, god …

Hi I was playing against someone using Halvar, God of Battle  Flip, he equipped a Sun Titan with a Batterskull making it a 10/10 with vigilance, lifelink and because of Halar's ability - double strike. He swung it at me, I had no blocks and played Reflect Damage. I thought he should take all 20 damage but he disagreed as he says sun titan was the source of 10 of the damage and Halvar was the source of the other ten (due to the double strike). Please can someone clear this up?
