Inquisitor's Flail Discussion
2 weeks ago
Looks fun. I disagree with the other commenters regarding draw/recovery. I think that these partners are best played as a glass-cannon, all or nothing, win early or bust strategy. This is just my 2 cents but I would make the following swaps:
Impulsive Pilferer -> Skirk Prospector. T1 Prospector = T2 Jeska!
Arcane Signet -> Simian Spirit Guide
Lightning Bolt -> Rite of Flame
Chandra, Torch of Defiance -> Lotus Petal
Leyline Tyrant -> Seize the Day
Trailblazer's Boots -> Dust Corona
Solemn Simulacrum -> Treasonous Ogre
Loyal Apprentice -> Inquisitor's Flail
Fireblade Charger -> Smoke
Champion of the Flame -> Neheb, the Eternal
Monastery Swiftspear -> Captive Flame
Koth of the Hammer -> Relentless Assault
Ruby Medallion -> Dockside Extortionist
Ring of Valkas -> Relic Axe
Whispersilk Cloak -> Champion's Helm. Rograkh having shroud could be problematic for you.
Lightning Greaves -> Taste for Mayhem

Your general's ability is very powerful in conjunction with untap-creature abilities and double strike. 3 equipment specifically to do this include Inquisitor's Flail Umbral Mantle and Fireshrieker. One way to ensure your attacks go through, or to decimate your opponents creatures, would be to add Lure-effects and creatures with that ability (Prized Unicorn). This ability works as a way to ensure you get to hit your foes, or if you buff the single creature, destroy many opposing creatures.

As it stands this deck is pretty solid. I can't believe I forgot to put Inquisitor's Flail in my Tahngarth deck. Biiig commander damage. The nice thing about voltron is you really can't seem to go wrong with your cards. A big fella is a big fella, doesn't matter how expensive your cards are lol.
Anyway there are really only a few changes I'd consider making. Your utility creatures could be subbed out. Normally having a body along with your removal is pretty nice, but in a deck like this I don't think it's worth the extra mana since you're getting a ton of little tree things all the time anyway. I'd also swap out Colossus Hammer since it's usually only good when you can cheat it onto something, like with Hammer of Nazahn. You can really replace these with whatever you want since you already have a nice spread of ramp and buffs and removal etc.
Cards you might like here are Brass Squire, Canopy Cover, Cindervines, Mask of Memory, and Regal Force to name a few. Couldn't hurt to throw in some wipes like Earthquake and Rolling Earthquake just in case either.
Now you just gotta figure out which one you're gonna put together. ;^)

There's also Darksteel Juggernaut if you plan to run quite a few artifacts.
I made a Tajic, Blade of the Legion indestructible/Worldslayer equipment deck with all the wraths/MLD cards in Boros. I used all of the equipment tutors and their associated support cards like Brass Squire, ect. It worked great but wouldn't say super competitive but if you get a MLD card off usually it would win. The wraths were just the clear the board for a Worldslayer swing and it wouldn't matter which indestructible critter was equipped. His Battalion trigger wasn't too hard to activate with all the indestructible critters on the field. Inquisitor's Flail is very one-sided here. (Tajic and His Dolls to old deck: note not updated in 4 years with plenty I would change)
There's also Boros Reckoner, Mogg Maniac, Spitemare, Truefire Captain, Coalhauler Swine (though prohibitive cost) that can be used for some fun. Not indestructible by any means but act like mini Repercussions. Funny to use Inquisitor's Flail with.

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
