9-lives I'd start by ditching the Pharagax Giant and Surtland Flinger, both are a LOT of mana and basically do nothing (the Pharagax Giant is literally just a vanilla 5/5, and Surtland Flinger is too slow to do anything reliably). After that I'd ditch the Electropotence (it requires waaay too much mana to activate, has a poor payoff, and does nothing on its own), and some number of Open the Armory (you already have a ton of ways to grab Colossus Hammer)

Edited a bit.

Removed Boros Charm and Valorous Stance added some Chained to the Rocks which makes me wonder If I should try to get more dual-lands so I can get more mountains.

Also reduced some artifacts amounts with these Open the Armory.

Got Basic Lands since Base Camp is slow and not that great to a 2-color deck.

And if you're going to run Helm of the Host them I'd add Stonehewer Giant, Open the Armory, Fighter Class, and Godo, Bandit Warlord as reliable tutors. Godo goes infinite with Helm too

Have you thought about adding Open the Armory?

Great theme song! I like the style of what you've built here and would play it as-is right now!

Some notes:
- Breena isn't card draw. It's a good card though. Also your monarch cards count as card draw. ;)
- Faithless Looting would be better if you were running Reanimate or recursion spells. Night's Whisper might be better.
- Mythos of Snapdax is OK but probably hits your own permanents harder than you'd like. Consider Blasphemous Act, Vanquish the Horde, Wrath of God or my latest personal favorite Promise of Loyalty there. Those still hit your creatures too but on an empty board monarch shines.
- Open the Armory is good but Fighter Class was built for Sunforger.
- Everyone has their own preference for win conditions in control decks. Debt to the Deathless, Exsanguinate, Torment of Hailfire, Master of Cruelties, Approach of the Second Sun, and Revel in Riches are all popular. One I found recently that might be interesting is Near-Death Experience. It needs support cards to make it work but they are spicy like Stunning Reversal and Plunge into Darkness. It also pairs with Master of Cruelties and life swap spells. This list is a good example for more ideas is you like that path.

Here is my Queen Marchesa deck with its own theme song (less original than yours). You might like it.

Have fun ruling the battlefield!

Very true, but you could get one golem for say your Sunhome Guildmage (whose only other uses are extremely expensive mana-sink abilities), or a card that nets you tons of your other multicolor cards by drawing to get a lot of golems (Like you are running Losheel which is pretty fantastic for this in this deck but imagine if you had two card draw engines out and having more than one allows some redundancy to account for removal/wipes). Kalemne also doesn't synergize with most of your cards because you mostly have a lower curve than their ability triggers off of. To be honest I would replace either of those with Slate of Ancestry since you are going to be flooding the board with tokens. You are also running Sunforger which is great for getting things you need. Stoneforge Mystic, Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory or Stonehewer Giant can get you Sunforger faster or can net you other fun equipment that work well in this deck like Sword of Fire and Ice.

There's also some fun shenanigans like Land Tax and Scroll Rack which is basically a "draw three a turn" as long as you are behind in lands, which you will be if you are playing vs any deck with green in it. Or Mask of Memory and Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle since the majority of your deck would be considered Historic so anything you bin with the Mask would come back with Teshar every time you cast one.

I would at least consider changing some stuff out after extensive playtesting, but hey, if you like how this plays and don't see the need for tighter tuning than there's no reason to change. Best of luck in your games!

Hey, you're welcome, nice update.

When you get down to 100 cards some further upgrades to consider are more cards that care about both equipment and auras such as Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist, Open the Armory, Sigarda's Aid, Armored Skyhunter, All That Glitters, Nettlecyst.

Ardenn, Aid and Skyhunter are other effects for free attaching equipment.
