Monomanamaniac on Equipping Godhood

I feel your pain on the budget, I've spent almost 900$ on my main commander deck, and 400 on 2 other ones, so I'm pretty budget strapped. So I'll take a deeper look and see what budget options you could consider.

Wear / Tear is better than disenchant. Ring of Valkas is a decent cheap equipment that grants haste, though I'd consider Basilisk Collar because it's never going to be more affordable, and Trailblazer's Boots because it's essentially unblockable. Talisman of Conviction is a very good Mana rock, as well as Thought Vessel because of no maximum hand size. Zirda, the Dawnwaker is amazing with equipment. Axgard Armory and Inventors' Fair are good tutor lands, and due to your Commander's ability I'd definitely run Reliquary Tower . You're also lacking in the removal category: Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile , Generous Gift , and Chaos Warp are solid inclusions that will stop your opponents from getting too far ahead.

Now for cuts I'd honestly do away with the worldslayer package because if you can't give your commander indestructible you're going to set yourself back just as far add everyone else. Scytheclaw is just too expensive for what you get, if you have to have that effect i would keep just Quietus Spike but in general I'd probably just look in a different direction and take both of them out. Grappling Hook is also overcosted, this is where I'd slot in Embercleave . I know you think embercleave is a bit costy, but you don't pay the equip cost when you cast it and you can do so as a combat trick. I'd likely turn away from Burnished Hart for Wayfarer's Bauble , you're only getting half the ramp but at half the investment. You might consider dropping Hyena Umbra because it's not really doing enough and On Serra's Wings because it's a 4 cost aura. Lastly I'd honestly consider cutting the godo helm because it's extremely unreliable and frankly wouldn't be the way i would go about winning. If the kaldra artifacts weren't so expensive I'd probably consider not running those too, but i get why if you're on a budget and already have them I'd definitely still run them. Oh and you should look at bolstering your creature numbers a little in case your commander gets killed too many times.

Anyways, that's my deep analysis for this deck, it's definitely focused on doing the thing, it's cmc is 2.63 which is decent but it means you should have more ramp/mana rocks at the 2 cost range. You're 75% white but has a land base that is almost 50/50 so you should think about adjusting it and when budget allows get some lands that tap for both colors. Overall wyleth is a Commander i would love to build around.

I just build my own Ardenn and Rugrat. Two cards I included are Quietus Spike and Scytheclaw. These in combination with Fireshrieker and Grappling Hook can deal massive damage in no time.

Ok, there are some cards I really don't think are a good choice here:

Braids of Fire literally became as powerful as it is because mana burn was removed. So if you're not planning on donating it to an opponent, I don't think it's a good card for Yurlok. Then, there are multiple cards like Black Vise. These are fine group slug cards, but Yurlok isn't giving opponents big hands. I like the idea of including Quietus Spike. Maybe include more cards of that kind?

Some great cards for Yurlok from Commander legends are Belbe, Corrupted Observer, Horizon Stone and Leyline Tyrant.

Shizuko, Caller of Autumn should actually work with Yurlok, as mana burn isn't an official rules term anymore (Can someone confirm this?).

A card you should try here is Thornbite Staff as a way to untap Yurlok. Also, how about Seedborn Muse for even more untapping? You could flood your opponents with so much mana they don't even know how to spend it.

Shielded by Faith to make your attacker less vulnerable? Same with Hammer of Nazahn. And with the Double Strike, Quietus Spike seems pretty useful.

Hello Paeldroth thanks for the comment. Argentum Armor and Quietus Spike were in the original list as well but were taken out. I will be adding in Eldrazi Conscription which I feel will replace the need for Argentum Armor. Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar would be good in a lot of decks, but I don't really see the need for it here. The goal is to keep my Commander on the board so attacking with them is not my primary objective, also as a 2/2 creature it is very easily removed. Correct me if I am wrong here, but Commander's Plate would really not do much here. I would only have protection from Green and Red and in removal scenarios those are not my biggest concerns. Maul of the Skyclaves may have a home here, I would need to find out what to replace with it though!

Maul of the Skyclaves does a lot of work with Ardenn. Quietus Spike makes things quite scary. Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar gives your commanders menace and deathtouch. Argentum Armor, Commander's Plate, Shadowspear. Some really great options once you ignore the equip cost.

Forcing people to attack means no blockers pretty frequently. You have the colors for Virtus the Veiled, Raving Dead or Quietus Spike. Master of Cruelties is less useful because if you can't attack with all creatures you have to attack with the most possible.

The same idea works with Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor or Tilonalli's Summoner.
