Paradise Mantle Discussion

Some other tap engines to consider:
Paradise Mantle - taps Kalamax by ramping. so it's never an empty tap.
Opposition - taps Kalamax and allows you tap something else down in response.
Rhystic Deluge - cheap card that taps Kalamax for , and may also be useful to tap down and tax opponents with unused mana. Some utility.

With Mox Opal banned in Modern you'll either have to find another source of black mana, replace Cranial Plating or rehab this as a Legacy deck. Your best bet is to add in either Mox Tantalite or Paradise Mantle.
Also, have you considered enchantment hate(such as Broken Bond) and counter spells (such as Voidslime)? Otherwise you'll be vulnerable to cards including, but are not limited to, Blood Moon and Solemnity.
Hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Unbeliebette :) I'm still just thinking about it right now. I'll probably go through a few ideas before I figure out what I'm actually doing, because that's how it always goes. Right now, it's just a pile or random cards :) But your artifact section especially gave me a lot of ideas and Mystic Forge is one I didn't know, and it looks like an absolute must include.
Glad that leonin seems like a fit. It's a really cool card and such a unique effect. There's also a pretty convoluted combo with Lightning Greaves or other 0 equip costs like Shuko Paradise Mantle Puresteel Paladin and Crackdown Construct It becomes a 4 mana infinite creature and being able to do it at instant speed with leonin shikari is pretty good. It can be really hard to get the pieces, but because it's an all artifact combo something like Oswald Fiddlebender can get it together.
I also wonder if things like Mother of Runes or Giver of Runes might be good to let your equipped creatures attack without any worry of blocks. I haven't played this type of deck yet, so not really sure what is good or not, just something that came to mind. You probably have a much better idea of what works :)
Anyways, again, such an excellent deck! Have a good one today!

Ok some feedback: Deck is much better and faster, but you can still improve. Firstly, I don't like the swords. I think that if you are running them to grab with Stoneforge Mystic, run Kaldra Compleat or Batterskull instead. Else, they are too slow without Stoneforge Mystic. If you do decide to cut out the swords, might as well also cut Nettlecyst for Lurrus of the Dream-Den because Lurrus is more consistent by definition thus better in the long game if your opponent has destroyed some Hammers/Sigaid with Force of Vigor or the likes. Thirdly, cut Paradise Mantle for an extra Springleaf Drum because having to equip at sorcery speed, and respecting summoning sickness isn't giving you speed, it is losing you speed. What you could add are more Fetchlands to be able to thin out your deck a little more; not too many though, just 2-4 considering they still get snow-basics. You could also add Ingenious Smith for Nettlecyst because smith gives you card advantage, and is still a threat without a lot of artifacts. It also dodges artifact hate. I also think that Dispatch in sideboard is significantly better than On Thin Ice for removal. Rest in Peace is also a pretty good sideboard option for a lot of decks you struggle with like Izzet Tempo and Yawgmoth instead of running so many swords.

Paradise Mantle would definitely be a solid option as a free card that could potentially do something for you, but I'm struggling to think up a way to get that one mana without lands to equip, since Mox Opal and Simian Spirit Guide are both banned. Leyline of Abundance might be worth considering as well, but it's probably not that amazing, since you'd only have the mantle to enable it.
Ok, now that you can produce some mana, you could potentially do some really stupid stuff, not sure how far down the rabbit hole you want to go though.
You could also now play Aether Vial to cheat stuff in.
There's lots of convoke cards begging to be broken as well, and you can get black creatures out in the form of Salvage Titan, so that's just something to think about.
If you were willing to play some of the flip lands that are technically not lands, I'm sure you could do some crazy convoluted stuff and win with Laboratory Maniac without lands, but it would no longer be an affinity deck, and you could argue it did technically have lands. I'm thinking convoke Endless Obedience into Angel of Glory's Rise after basically dumping your deck into the graveyard.
That's a far cry from the current build of the deck, so I'm just mentioning it instead of suggesting it.

Looks fun! Thoughts on these?
Simian Spirit Guide: gets Akiri out a turn faster
Greataxe: great (haha) turn 1 play
Sunforger: big damage and gives you access to any of your instants. nice synergy with Ardenn too
Mistveil Plains: recycles instants, good if you go with Sunforger. Could recycle equipment for Stonehewer and the like too.
Monologue Tax: Similar to Smothering Tithe
Bastion Protector: pumps and protects both your commanders
Akiri, Fearless Voyager: draw and protection!
Puresteel Paladin: good draw, super good with Bloodforged Battle-Axe

Hey nice deck! The way i see it you can focus more one one direction of this deck and use the other for support: either auras or equipment. Aura Focus: Add: Archon of Sun's Grace Ashiok's Erasure Boon Satyr Copy Enchantment Curiosity Darksteel Mutation Dissipation Field Hydra's Growth Gift of Paradise Hypnotic Siren Ichthyomorphosis Idyllic Tutor Kenrith's Transformation Plea for Guidance Psychic Impetus Unflinching Courage
