Prowler's Helm Discussion

I never play Azorius so I made a Bruna deck similar to this recently. I would definitely go with an unblockable voltron strategy.
You're on the right track with Steel of the Godhead. You can also add Aqueous Form, Spirit Mantle, and Unquestioned Authority to make it unblockable. Aqueous Form also gives you a scry effect. Thassa, God of the Sea is pretty good too if you have the budget for it.
Here's a link if you want to see the Bruna deck. It's mostly enchantments but maybe you'll like some of them.

I like this list, I was curious about brewing the same thing when Kediss was spoiled, give the Ishai that's been sitting in my binder since 2016 some play. Really nice curve for a first draft, too!
2 suggestions: (1) I can't help but feel that Tragic Arrogance would be much better for you than Single Combat. I don't like that Single Combat stops you from rebuilding on your next turn, plus Tragic Arrogance gives you the choice of what your opponent's sacrifice. (2) Perhaps Whispersilk Cloak over Prowler's Helm. I get that shroud is not always ideal in a voltron list compared to hexproof, but with Ishai I'd imagine you don't really need to target him often, since he grows on his own. Would kinda suck if you wanted to use something like Seize the Day, sure, but I think more often than not you'd appreciate the protection from spot removal that the cloak adds. 5 mana invest for protection and unblockable is a much better rate than 4 mana investment for just unblockable.

Your list is looking really good! You have pretty much most of the classic Aristocrats pieces in. Your creature list is spot-on IMO. I love how much removal you have.
A couple of suggestions here though. I am going to assume you're on at least something of a budget. If you're not, hit up EDHREC for more powerful suggestions, of course.
I would recommend a bit more ramp. You're sitting at four ramp pieces by my count, and Bontu's Monument and Ashnod's Altar are a bit questionable as true ramp. They're definitely good and worth their slots--don't get me wrong. I'd recommend at least eight ramp pieces in almost any deck. Some good includes would be Wayfarer's Bauble, Charcoal Diamond, Star Compass, Myriad Landscape, Prismatic Lens, Mind Stone, Worn Powerstone. With a bit of money you have Arcane Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Jet Medallion, Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers and Sword of the Animist.
I wouldn't really recommend Altar of Dementia unless you can infinitely loop sacrifices and make it a win-con. If you just want free sac outlets; your commander, Ashnod's, Woe Strider, and Carrion Feeder should do the trick and give you value in return that you can actually use. Same with Ayara and stuff. Culling Dais and Spawning Pit are decent. One of Yehenni's biggest strengths is having a free sac outlet in the command zone.
Speaking of your commander, one of the reasons to run Yahenni over other mono-Black aristocrats commanders is the threat he/she turns into. I would recommend a few pieces of equipment to help end the game. Loxodon Warhammer, Blackblade Reforged, Lashwrithe, Trailblazer's Boots, Prowler's Helm, and of course Swiftfoot Boots are all good choices. Lots to choose from here but these are great for their price. Obviously there are all the Swords and Jitte and stuff if you have the cash or have them in your collection.

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

Prowler's Helm is always a funny card, I run it in my Skullbriar deck

I like your deck however there are some changes that I would suggest making.
- Lightning Greaves: This card sounds like it would be very good however cards like this come with a very big downside. The downside is that it doesn't just stop your opponents from targeting your stuff it also stops you from targeting your stuff. This means that you will not be able to equip any more equipment to your creatures after you put the greaves on them. I would recommend replacing them with Swiftfoot Boots
- Whispersilk Cloak: I think that this should be taken out of the deck for the same reason that Lightning Greaves should be taken out and that is that it gives shroud. If you want the cloak for the unblockable then replace it with Trailblazer's Boots or Prowler's Helm and if you want it for the protection replace it with Champion's Helm.
- Argentum Armor: This card is good if you can get it on a creature but I think it just cost way too much, it takes twelve mana to play and equip in one turn and if you just play the equipment and leave it on the board it becomes an immediate target and you probably won't get to attack with it.
And that is pretty much it, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

oscarofastora: Some replacements that I would recommend are have Champion's Helm replace General's Kabuto and have Darksteel Plate replace Lightning Greaves both of these new pieces of equipment protect your commanders without preventing you from attaching more equipment to them.
if you have the Whispersilk Cloak in the deck for the unblockable then you could replace it with Prowler's Helm and if you have it in the deck for the protection you could replace it with a cheap equipment tutor like Steelshaper's Gift so you can fetch a better piece of protection like the aforementioned Champion's Helm or Darksteel Plate.

Have you considered Prowler's Helm or Mogis's Marauder? They can both pretty budget and benefit your ninjas after they sneak in. Plus the marauder kinda demands to be blocked and thus acts like a decoy for your other ninjas. Hope this helps.
