Trailblazer's Boots Discussion

Hey, you're welcome.
Group Hug draw theme is interesting, haven't seen this theme with Pirates. Breeches ability kind of goes against Group Hug though because the strategy is to make all your opponents exile cards and you want to cast them/play with your opponents cards. You can choose which opponents are dealt damage by Pirates, but sometimes you don't have a choice who you can attack due to the battlefield/board states. You attack the opponents who can't block your Pirates to get value from Malcolm and Breeches; makes politics difficult.
Drawing cards is excellent, but letting all your opponents draw cards does take away an advantage that Malcolm gives you. Because of Malcolm/Pirates you will have enough mana to cast all cards in your hand as well as your opponents exiled cards. If you're drawing cards then you can keep casting cards, advancing your game plan, because of treasures and exile, but if opponents are also drawing just as many cards then you lose this advantage.
Glint-Horn Buccaneer is the real reason right now to want to play Pirates especially using Malcolm as a Commander. When Buccaneer attacks the combo can be a win condition, lots of draw and lots of ramp/treasures which is amazing from one Pirate. It's really a one card combo since all you have to do is find/draw Buccaneer since Malcolm is in the Command Zone.
Some Cards to consider cutting:
- Brass's Bounty: doesn't do enough for seven mana since don't want to ramp into it with treasures instead needing at least six lands to get enough value for seven mana.
- Mirror March: Molten Echoes is a better repeatable token producer which makes Mirror six drop redundancy.
- Sisay's Ring: don't really need four drop ramp; it could be replaced by a low CMC Pirate with evasion to help to trigger Malcolm.
- Fell Flagship: +1/0 to all Pirates is subpar and rarely will you want to crew it to attack because it has no evasion and isn't a Pirate.
- Sailor of Means: all it does is make a treasure which is in my opinion not good enough when there's other options that do more.
- Trailblazer's Boots: the most situational equipment from the rest to potentially make a Pirate unblockable.
- Pongify: is fine, but there's better options for removal.
Some changes to consider:

I'd try to get some more 2 drop ramp spells worked in: Coldsteel Heart, Marble Diamond, Mind Stone, and Fellwar Stone to name a few budget options. If you want of focus on the Voltron aspect of the deck, I'd cut high CMC cards like Angel of Serenity and Admonition Angel. Some lower CMC forms of removal at instant speed that you could fetch with Sunforger would serve you better, and you can free up slots for more equipment or protection spells. I think I'd cut Runehorn Hellkite, too. If you still want the card draw, try Magus of the Wheel or Humble Defector. Trailblazer's Boots is another nice piece of equipment. If you are interested in being able to equip ALL of your artifacts to Wyleth, Bludgeon Brawl can do it.
Sejiri Shelter Flip could substitute for one of your Plains, or possibly Spawning Bed. I'm not sure what that card does for you, but there seem to be better nonbasics. It can offer some protection in a pinch.
Hope this helps. You've got quite a bit of good equipment in there, much better than I have available. +1.

I was going to mention Trailblazer's Boots but looks like I was beaten to it. But yeah... amazing card, especially in Commander where the overwhelming majority of decks have a decent number of nonbasic lands. It's been a crazy good card for any voltron builds I make.

Aside from windgrace, I do remember the original zendikar block cared a little bit about landwalk with Trailblazer's Boots, Bog Tatters, Cliff Threader, etc. Though its definitely a dead ability aside from the odd reprint, or toss on ability for something kooky.

Second, are you focusing on a Voltron-style Commander damage win with Kozilek? I can tell you it doesn't happen very often since he's actually quite vulnerable to removal. I also started with a build that had a lot of unblockable effects, but it turns out that Kozilek isn't the best attacker compared to your other Eldrazi. I'd focus more on using Kozilek for card advantage and digging for your other Eldrazi to win the game.
Finally, a few upgrades to consider: Manifold Key is strictly better than Voltaic Key. Platinum Angel and Platinum Emperion are both super helpful and more impactful than Reality Smasher and Sandstone Oracle. Doubling Cube is pretty fun ramp and probably better than Gilded Lotus. Commander's Plate is going to be much better than Whispersilk Cloak, though it's decently expensive rn.
Here's my list that I've been running for a few years, if you want more ideas: Kozi Kozi Commander (Colorless Eldrazi EDH)
Have fun, it's a super fun deck to play with!

VampDemigod The cards I just pulled out of my collection for the deck so far are, Sol Ring, Narset's Reversal, Reality Shift, Trailblazer's Boots, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Thieving Skydiver, Expel from Orazca, Tale's End, Entrancing Melody, Fact or Fiction, Clever Impersonator, Tezzeret, Artifice Master, Rogue's Passage, Castle Vantress, and Scavenger Grounds What do you think?

Swapping Elbrus out for something else is also probably the right idea, but instead of Loxodon Warhammer, try Shadowspear. Either option works, though. I would try Banshee's Blade and Nim Deathmantle instead of Hero's Blade and Trailblazer's Boots
Tezzeret's Gambit seems like an easy include, but I personally wouldn't cut a signet to add it, but possibly something else might do. The various proliferate cards are all useful, so choose which you like most, but if you get your hands on a Contagion Engine, swap out Contagion Clasp for it.
Lastly, I think you can get away with cutting an infect creature if you feel you need something else more.
