Personally I would make these swaps:

Also it looks like you forgot to add your lands

You might consider these: Colossus Hammer , Ogre's Cleaver , Armored Skyhunter , Stonehewer Giant , Gold Myr (2-drop ramp gets Balan out a turn faster, increasing your damage output. personally I'd pull out 9 lands and replace them with ramp pieces), Mind Stone , Sol Ring , Everflowing Chalice , Guardian Idol , Hedron Crawler , Mask of Memory , Argentum Armor , War Room , Bonders' Enclave , Buried Ruin , Cathedral of War

Monomanamaniac: all good. I hate when you get a card which is ok, but has amazing artwork, so I get the inclusing of Ogre's Cleaver.

If you can get it, I think that Land Tax will definitely do more for the deck than Caged Sun will. I also think that if you're looking at potential swap outs, Pearl Medallion ironically enough feels like one of the easier cuts. I get that it helps drop the cost of white spells down, however chances are you're not playing more than one white spell a turn or the second spell will be something like Swords to Plowshares in which case a mana rock is just better anyway. The joys of mono coloured voltron decks :P

enpc I can see that, I like the Caged Sun the turn before I cast Balan so that I can keep the most threatening equipment in hand until I play her. It's still a high costed card though. Maybe I'll get rid of it for O-Naginata lol. I have a foil O-Naginata that I've been contemplating using because double strike and trample are amazing. I like Ogre's Cleaver mainly for the looks of it, but it has kept it's place because it gets gets Balan to within 3 points of being lethal. Lastly the cleaver was designed to cost 7 to play and equip, but Balan circumvents that.

Thank you for your suggestions I'll definitely consider shifting some cards around to fit the naginata

I would probably ditch the Caged Sun. I get that it's a mana doubler, but it's also six mana itself and I don't think it adds enough value.

I would also recommend a copy of O-Naginata over Ogre's Cleaver. I get that cleaver gives a bigger damage buff, but neither of them allow you to one shot a player by themselves. however O-Naginata gives trample which helps connect through better.

I was thinking of building a gwyn deck as well. Here are some cards I think could be cool to run in this deck. Obviously a lot of options.






Required are Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Surestrike Trident . Then you can just go down the line of creatures attaching all of your power increasing equipment and tapping them for tons of damage. If you have Leonin Shikari and Brave the Sands out, then you can all out attack and then do the tapping out on the endstep before your turn. If you don't have Surestrike Trident but instead have Heartseeker then you can just kill a creature for each one you control.

TCG-Player There are definitely other ways of working around that equip cost though!


NensouHiebara did turn down Ogre's Cleaver for the similar reason of a high equip cost, but Colossus Hammer has the difference of making Balan, Wandering Knight a one-shot kill when also equipped with literally any other equipment in the deck. NensouHiebara made a similar argument for Inquisitor's Flail (which made the cut, but understandably has more reasonable costs).

I would play test the Colossus Hammer by removing the Basilisk Collar . First strike and deathtouch seems nice, but no power boost just lengthens games. Colossus Hammer will end games faster and seems like the closest thing to an Eldrazi Conscription equipments will get
