Wow I never realized there were so many cards with Stuffy Doll in the art! Very cool deck and great description. These might interest you: Pariah's Shield , Mogg Maniac , Coalhauler Swine , Arcbond , Repercussion , Deadeye Quartermaster , Hammer of Nazahn , Mindmoil , Arjun, the Shifting Flame , Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar

Everything works as you expect it to work. Lets say you have 2 creatures on board and one of them is equipped with 1x Pariah's Shield and 2x Shield of the Avatar . Your opponent cast Lightning Bolt targeting you. The bolt resolves and Pariah's Shield replacement effect takes place attempting to damage your equipped creature instead. You control the creature equipped with Shield of the Avatar , therefore you choose the order of which the 2 prevention effects occur. The first shield prevents 2 of the 3 damage from Lightning Bolt (since you control two creatures), then the second prevents the last point of damage , therefore absorbing the damage fully.

If a creature is equipped with both Pariah's Shield and Shield of the Avatar , will the latter shield prevent damage that is redirected to the creature by the former shield?

Also, as a bonus question, will the abilities of multiple shields of the avatar stack with each other?

Sonic Assault , Chandra, Pyromaster , Pariah's Shield are what I would definitely cut. Sonic because it's kinda packing for the format, Pyromaster because her first and second abilities can be done better by other cards. Pariah's Shield because it's high costed and pariah is so much cheaper. I might also switch champions helm for Lightning greaves.

Atla seems very weak. The ability to combo with the Stalactite and Altar is like any 3-card combo with one piece being a commander. Unless the combo pieces tutor for each other, are able to all be tutored by a separate card, or the commander can tutor for at least one of the pieces, or the combo is 1-3 mana entirely, the combo isn't reasonably viable on a general basis.

Elsha seems... kind of bad? It is a combo enabler with Top, and Flash, no reveal, only noncreature Future Sight seems okay, but a 5 mana creature variant that any Swords to Plowshares or counterspell can deal with seems weak. Maybe with enough protection, such as Silence type effects, the deck can just be a combo deck with Elsha as a piece, but as a Storm Engine, I doubt it will be able to reliably go off without too little protection. Maybe a midrange combo deck in the realms of tier 2-3.

Other commanders:

K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is some high-tier mono-black Doomsday / Aetherflux Reservoir storm, you can look it up, it is really good, too good to explain here.

Anje Falkenrath can cycle through all madness cards for free really fast. I am sure there are some ways to abuse this. I don't know any off of the top of my head, but a Razaketh, the Foulblooded reanimator plan seems reasonable. Just run normal b/r tutors, a few reanimation spells, rakazeth, the combo you plan to use him with, and then lands and fill the rest with madness enablers and fast mana, I'd imagine you could do well with it, not entirely sure. Maybe there is a doomsday line as well, like another Grenzo.

Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero is apparently a good eggs commander, but I haven't seem any list. Ichor Wellspring , Krark-Clan Ironworks , etc do seem to have the proper synergies for a sweet list though.

Chainer, Nightmare Adept seems possibly decent. Buried Alive for Zealous Conscripts , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , and Phyrexian Delver might be a thing, but I am not sure how much I am a fan of that. It may just be a decent value engine like Elsha.

Sevinne, the Chronoclasm could be reasonable with cards like Snapcaster Mage or Mission Briefing , Deep Analysis , and stuff like that, but is probably bad. Pariah's Shield is worth a mention here.

Pramikon, Sky Rampart is a reasonable include into some decks to fight Tymna the Weaver , kind of a Silent Arbiter effect, able to deal well with some blood pod decks in the meta, but isn't really a commander for cEDH, unless if Spark Double , Sakashima the Impostor , or Helm of the Host for no attacks at all seems useful.

Grismold, the Dreadsower , Volrath, the Shapestealer , Rayami. First of the Fallen , Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer , and Ghired, Conclave Exile just seem bad as commanders go.

I may go over the other cards more indepth, like the legendaries, but for now:

Cliffside Rescuer , Backdraft Hellkite , Mandate of Peace , Road of Return , Sudden Substitution , Sanctum of Eternity , Leadership Vacuum , Sevinne's Reclamation , Selesnya Eulogist , Mire in Misery, Selesnya Eulogist , and Bone Miser seem posssible, but Dockside Extortionist is the best of them by far.

May I suggest the en-Kor creatures? Nomads en-Kor and thr like. Pair those with Pariah and Pariah's Shield . You can then redirect the incoming damage to whichever enrage creatures you want. Marath, Will of the Wild , while not a dino works well with Rite of Passage and Guilty Conscience .

ZendikariWol, I think Sevinne, the Chronoclasm is actually really fun.

To start, it combos with one of my favorite cards from last year's set, Reality Scramble , IDK how good that is, but it'd be a blast.

For real value, I think the deck looks to be a graveyard value control deck. Maybe a bit of prison, considering how you can become 'immortal' by enchanting Sevinne, the Chronoclasm with a Pariah , or equipping it with a Pariah's Shield .

Swiftfoot Boots , Champion's Helm , etc. to protect it, then abuse it's ability to combo with Flashback, like Deep Analysis , jumpstart like Chemister's Insight , retrace like Oona's Grace , and aftermath like Refuse / Cooperate

Total, there are a lot of good spells to abuse with it:

Flashback -

Cackling Counterpart

Deep Analysis

Desperate Ravings

Echo of Eons

Faithless Looting

Firebolt

Increasing Devotion

Increasing Vengeance

Mystic Retrieval

Past in Flames

Recoup

Scour All Possibilities

Think Twice

Jump-Start -

Quasiduplicate

Radical Idea

Beacon Bolt

Chemister's Insight

Risk Factor

Retrace -

Oona's Grace

Reality Scramble

Call the Skybreaker

Aftermath -

Leave / Chance

Failure / Comply

Farm / Market

Reduce / Rubble

Refuse / Cooperate

Support:

Mission Briefing

Snapcaster Mage

Quiet Speculation

Runic Repetition

Catalyst Stone

That's all I can think of right now, if I remember any more sweet cards with Sevinne, I'll tell you!
