Artifact — Equipment
If equipped creature would deal combat damage, it deals double that damage instead.
If another creature would deal combat damage to equipped creature, it deals double that damage to equipped creature instead.

Inquisitor's Flail looks TOO good to cut. You can literally attach that to our commander along with ANY equipment that gives at least +2 power to make every attack become lethal if unblocked. Blackblade Reforged on the other hand consists of raw power at a reasonable equip cost (to legendaries), but does not add much utility to the deck (like card draw, evasiveness, or protection). I would agree that this looks like the next possible cut for the deck.

Power doublers that stack with double strike such as Two-Handed Axe, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and Inquisitor's Flail are pretty useful if you need Shivan Dragon to be huge.
I like how Unquestioned Authority offers unblockability while replacing itself. War Cadence offers a combat trick you can use to help get through.
Dawnbreak Reclaimer and Pulsemage Advocate are repeatable ways to recur your Dragon, there is also Gift of Immortality.
A nice spare Ghostly Prison effect can be found in Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs or Sphere of Safety, there are also Baird, Steward of Argive and Windborn Muse. In a pinch a card like Spurnmage Advocate or Intrepid Hero can make good deterants.
Vs running so many 1 colour wards have thought about Flickering Ward? You can run various tutors that can find it or another Enchantment such as Heliod's Pilgrim or Moon-Blessed Cleric, there are various spells that can do the same or better, plenty can also find equipment. If you do stick Flickering in you could also try Mesa Enchantress, which is also great with enchantments period.
With access to Pro Red, maybe some Red wipes that use damage? Some include Blasphemous Act, Chain Reaction, and Reckless Endeavor, Pro Red makes these 1 sided.
Hope some ideas here apply, I typed this fairly early in the morning, with only so much coffee, so forgive me if this is a heap of spam!
DreadKhan on Glissa Artifacts

I feel like the new Make an Example, Black Market Connections, and Protection Racket are all really good, versatile cards, I'd run Connections or Racket over Phyrexian Arena in a second, and Example is one of the best removal effects ever printed, it's targeted without being targeted and it's a forced sacrifice effect, you deal with each opponent's most problematic creature, and if they don't have an especially problematic one they're in a ton of trouble. Unless you're super-attached to the Instant part of Soul Shatter, Example has a much higher ceiling vs creatures. If you really want something else to hit PWs, there is the artifact Hex Parasite, which can take counters off of anything, which is pretty nifty and can be recurred with your Commander should it die. Soul Shatter works vs PWs and creatures, but Hex Parasite can hurt all manner of cards using counters.
Probably too small, but Inquisitor's Flail is a cheap way to double your Commander's power if you've got First Strike, very few things will be able to touch your Commander, not sure if you ever Voltron win, you do have other equipment.
DreadKhan on Rafiq, The One Hit Wonder

If the BW deck uses lots of enchantments, Ancestral Mask is pretty strong. It's also a card that's a great payoff for using lots of enchantments yourself. For the record, I suspect Enchantments as a theme is much more supported than Equipment is, there are incredibly borked cards like Serra's Sanctum (Tolarian Academy is banned), Academy Rector, and Replenish (the best of it's kind, but there are assorted other cheap versions), while stuff like Hall of Heliod's Generosity and many various Enchantresses (there aren't as many for Equipment I think) including Verduran Enchantress and Kor Spiritdancer are also very good. I have a Boros deck that uses creatures that draw cards off of enchantments being cast and stuff like Flickering Ward that I can recast over and over, I think Green has a bunch of other solid Enchantress cards, stuff like Setessan Champion. I think you can definitely run both and do fine, but if you wanted to go all in on one, Enchantments is really well supported in Bant.
If your Commander will usually have Double Strike, you probably could run Inquisitor's Flail, it's a really strong equipment with First Strike damage.
Not sure if you've got enough creatures to make it a viable alternative, but something like Pathbreaker Ibex could be an amusing backup Commander if you lose Rafiq somehow, maybe an Oubliette. The neat thing about Pathbreaker is that it can also double it's power (and get trample) after you buff it up, so it can be a very fast clock as well, and it has the not insubstantial upside that if you have a few creatures out with Rafiq you can just clobber people with a big Ibex swing.
DreadKhan on Iroas Said, "The Lannisters Send Their Regards."

Tenza, Godo's Maul is an equipment that you might want to check whenever you have a Red Commander, with Iroas I think you gain plenty to justify it. Inquisitor's Flail is good for your Commander at least, but you don't have Trample built in, so it might not actually work unless you can count on having Vigilance. Maybe Brave the Sands would help? Drumbellower also exists.
True Conviction, Berserkers' Onslaught, and Blade Historian are Double Strike sources that seem decent and global. I find Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is a great damage doubler since she also halves it vs your stuff.

Looks fun. You might like these: Berserkers' Onslaught, True Conviction, Bastion Protector, Lotus Petal, Simian Spirit Guide, Rite of Flame, Grateful Apparition, Sword of Truth and Justice, Overblaze, Fiendish Duo, Tome of Legends, Bonders' Enclave, Chandra's Incinerator, Inquisitor's Flail, Reyav, Master Smith, Duelist's Heritage
DreadKhan on Lady Zhurong, Warrior Queen

Niko9 I bet you're right! Thanks! It's easy to forget things like that (apparently).
Inquisitor's Flail might help instead of Blade of Selves, since nobody is blocking your Lady, it just doubles your damage. Fireshrieker also works in Green, and works while blocking with Vigilance.
Sorin_Markov_1947 on Feather - Righteous Strike

With Feather, you need to lean one way or the other, pump or burn. Cards like Firebrand Archer won't do much of anything in a deck that wins by Commander damage, whereas the pump is best replaced in a burn deck. This deck leans more toward pump, so I'll suggest cards for that.
Ajani's Presence is strictly better than some of the protection spells in here. Inquisitor's Flail is a repeatable way to double Feather's damage, it also stacks with both double strike and Unleash Fury. Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar turns a one=person kill into a full win. Blacksmith's Skill is just about the best protection spell you could ever want. Sejiri Shelter Flip is a relevant MDFC. Intimidation Bolt can save you games. Impact Resonance can help you deal with problems too, and speaking of removal, you need some boardwipes. Austere Command is a very flexible sweeper, Blasphemous Act is a quality cheap one that you can frequently protect your own stuff from, and Slaughter the Strong is also cheap and mostly doesn't affect you. If you're running Sunforger, you really need to run Magnetic Theft to fetch on the first activation. It's a very effective combo. And then Storm-Kiln Artist is just a must in every Feather deck. It turns your engine from good to game-ending in seconds. Show of Confidence is also a game-ender, pairs very well with the storm aspect of the deck and the counters are permanent and it's hard to counter.
Generally higher-quality spells to have that are in my deck include Infuriate, Light of Hope, Stave Off, and Rile (it may be a sorcery, but trample is very relevant).
If you find your stuff is getting countered, or you need to use spells but Feather can't stay out, recursion like Dreadhorde Arcanist, Mavinda, Students' Advocate, and Past in Flames might be worth looking into.
In general, remove two-cost spells if possible, remove burn, and think about what color your mana production is. In my experience, most of the spells you want to cast multiple times are white, so red-mana production is less valuable. And Remote Farm will backfire very quickly without a way to increase its counters or blink it. There are a few other cards in here that just aren't quite good enough if you need advice on more things to take out.
If your playgroup starts to adapt, like mine did, and runs cards that don't care about your protection like Sakashima's Will, Out of Time, Extinction Event, etc., think about Eerie Interlude. It's three mana and one-time protection, but it can get you out of a rough spot that no other card can.
Dual-lands are very important in my experience. Consider Alpine Meadow, Command Tower (a must in every EDH deck), Stone Quarry, Thriving Heath, Thriving Bluff, and Wind-Scarred Crag.
