Creature — Human Soldier
Renown 1 (When this creature deals combat damage to a player, if it isn't renowned, put a +1/+1 counter on it and it becomes renowned.)
When Relic Seeker becomes renowned, you may search your library for an Equipment card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

Thank you for the suggestions, a couple of the ones you made were in the orginal build but decided against them for one reason or another. Like Skullclamp isn't in the deck because i dont like adding it to decks that i cant abuse it with (like i can in my Chatterfang, Squirrel General deck), as im trying to avoid Balan from dying as much i dont think i could get the full value from the card. Which is why i adding cards like Sword of Fire and Ice, Mask of Memory and Endless Atlas as they would be more reliable forms of draw.
I put Divine Reckoning in the deck over Tragic Arrogance because i wanted to advoid losing all my equipment and having to rebuild again, plus the added bonus of it being reuseable. But i agree with you that Divine Reckoning might not be good enough so i thought that Promise of Loyalty might be a better fit as it gets around indestructible with the sac effect like Tragic Arrogance does but also means i get to keep my equipment and protects me from the creatures that survive.
Steelshaper's Gift was going to be in the deck orginally but i switched it with Enlightened Tutor instead as it gave me more flexibility with being able to search up any artifact or enchantment instead of just equipment. But i do think the deck could do with more tutor effects so i think im going to take your suggestion and add Relic Seeker to the deck and remove Kemba, Kha Regent, like you i feel she doesnt pull her weight like she used to.
I also agree with you on Finale of Glory not fitting the deck and even though it pains me to say it that Caged Sun might be to slow for the deck. So im going to take your advice and add Surestrike Trident and Ironsoul Enforcer as they're both interesting cards that i think could fit the deck nicely and i'd love to see how they do.

I started edh in mono white forged in stone intro deck so I'm a big fan of balan. I have one I'm going to compare to this one a little later too see if there are any things I'd like to add. However. No Skullclamp ?? This is a tragedy. Seriously though I'm surprised you don't have it in your list. Overall:
Looks reasonable but kinda slow. Maybe a tad short on lands? A few easy swaps/upgrade if you can get the cards. A few cards I think underperform I pointed out below. Vultron ftw.
Steelshaper's Gift 1 drop open the armory. I'd run both.
Relic Seeker equipment tutor
15 equipment might be on the low side. Maybe shoot for 20 by running some less impactful but still great equipment that can make dorks into threats
Finally of glory is kinda meh here. Your goal is Voltron. If you had more token support sure. But your only other token support is Kimba who I've never seen do good in years. You would be better with a alternative wincons like Felidar Sovereign or janky equipmentlike Surestrike Trident to hit face if you were going to stray a tad from the vultron idea.
Caged Sun is fun. But hard to cast here. T6 you play it hope it lasts and then maybe your ok. You can maybe find a few cards to reanimate it and that would make it more valuable but not great. I find when I play vultron you want to be killing someone around turn 5 to 7 to not get overwhelmed by valuey decks like simic and combo.
Ironsoul Enforcer interesting new card I've been trying to force into my deck. No luck yet. Maybe you'd like to try it.

Made some further changes. The Pleateau is a proxy.
Swapped out the following:

Hero's Blade and Sunforger are two have placed in a voltron-y Jeskai list I am making. Just waiting on cards from TCGPlayer to get the list finalized. haha. Mask of Memory doesn't buff you, but it is cheap to play and equip, and card draw is always nice to have. They seem like they will be useful in the voltron strategy as well. As far as instants are concerned, Crackling Doom is a favorite of mine. Red Elemental Blast is always good. I think the new Infernal Grasp is going to make a name for itself as well. Fighter Class may be something you are interested in. Battle Mastery could also be an option. Simian Spirit Guide is another form of ramp that you can hard cast in a dire situation. Relic Seeker is an ok tutor for your favorite equipment, or whatever you need at the time. Semester's End is another pseudo copy of Teferi's Protection, though admittedly strictly worse. Haha. I dont know what you want to keep your budget at, but Land Tax is an excellent way to make sure you always have your colors and hit your land drops. Hope at least a few of these can help now that i have a little better understanding of your deck than i did earlier. Good luck!

Lightning Greaves is a really good card, if your commander only needs to be either hasty or protected to execute your game plan.
In an equipment strategy though, Shroud prevents other equipment being attached to the greaves-equipped creature. It's really awkward to have to shift the greaves away from your one big creature to equip it with other pieces, opening it up to removal while doing so.
I'd cut that.
I'm a fan of Brass Squire in these decks, cheating on equip costs is pretty powerful if a quarter of your deck is equipment.
Relic Seeker is solid.
Buried Ruin can grab an equipment from the graveyard back to hand, great utility on a land.
Inventors' Fair seems like a must-run.
Is there a reason you took the kobold as second partner other than novelty? Akiri, Line-Slinger is very powerful as a beatstick in the command zone

Stoneforge Mystic and Steelshaper's Gift are probably out of budget, but Relic Seeker, Stonehewer Giant, Taj-Nar Swordsmith and Steelshaper Apprentice are pretty budget ways to make sure you keep finding your important equipment most of your games.
