Trepanation Blade

Artifact — Equipment

If you're looking for solid equipment, some cards I'd suggest are Godsend , Hammer of Nazahn , and the brand new Embercleave . I would think about tossing Trepanation Blade , it's honestly as likely to help the opponent as hurt them when you send cards from their deck to the grave.

There's also the Akroan Crusader that's a Red 1 drop that'll produce 1/1 tokens.

I've built around the heroic mechanic before and it is fun. If left unchecked it'll get out of hand in a hurry, but with this deck I'm semi going for the speed aggro thing, since the double strike creatures with all the pumps are in there. I was just trying to stay away from that Colossus Hammer . I think it looks cool, but I think everything in the deck leads up to that combo, where I want this to be something a little more versatile. Same goes for Trepanation Blade

multimedia making a habit of popping in on my decks :p

Thanks for the input. I'll look into my equipment and cut some. I addition to the ones you mentioned, I really like Masterwork of Ingenuity , it can nab me a sword if my opponent's have one. The Sycthe lets me steel opponent's creatures, the Flail serves as a Grand Abolisher , Trepanation Blade and the Sword of Body and Mind give me another win-con in milling. Dagger serves as a mana rock, Amulet is card draw, Kusari-Gama works as a single player board wipe. I can see Godsend and Argentum Armor leaving, they're really just removal. But you do make a great point with the Equipment. Maybe work it down to 10. I'll have to check out what I have lying around. Between this and my Angel deck, I have spent way too much money this month.

Building around Jace, Memory Adept might be your best option. Budgety, you could build a mill deck with things like Jace's Erasure and Jace's Archivist , Tome Scour , Increasing Confusion , Mind Sculpt , some draw engines and couterspells will have you having some fun. I like to use Mindshrieker equipped with a Trepanation Blade

Suggested Removals

Winds of Rath - You are running only 4 Enchantment Auras so chances are, this will wipe your own board as well. If that's the case, there're lowest CMC board wipes like Day of Judgment , or more versatile ones like Cleansing Nova at 5 CMC. Austere Command while being 6 CMC, allows you to wipe the big CMC monsters while leaving your Commander unharmed since he only cost to cast.

Grappling Hook - I'd just run a removal like Path to Exile over this.

Inquisitor's Flail - Double-edged sword, literally.

Trepanation Blade - It's a Hit and Miss. At to cast and to equip, there are better options out there.

xaarvaxus Thanks for the suggestions. The Aphetto Alchemist goes for infinite untaps with the Illusionist's Bracers , but now that I think about it, hoping to draw this without having any tutors does seem meek. I think I will run a Blind Obedience instead of a Authority of the Consuls . The Trepanation Blade works so well in my Skullbriar, the Walking Grave Voltron deck, mainly to boost his power. I thought about adding it here, but you're right I don't really plan on attacking all that much. I have considered adding a Crawlspace instead just so I could Pillow-Fort a little better.

Araignee I am changing the Insight for the Revelation. Also, I corrected the Talisman. Thank you for your suggestions. I have tweaked the build a little more based on these suggestions so far.

Glacial Chasm is a land that can be added to the pillowfort suite of protection.

Imprinting Dramatic Reversal on Isochron Scepter should help seal a mill win.

Village Bell-Ringer can untap the whole team and block better than the alchemist so I would move that in from the maybeboard.

Altar of the Brood can come down early and chips away at everyone, shortening up the total number of cards you need to focus fire per opponent.

Blind Obedience will slow down opponents' artifact ramp as well as attacks plus you can still get some lifegain if needed.

If you own the Thrumming Stone I'd play it, if not, well, it is on the pricey side so could see not splurging for it.

I'm not sure how useful the Trepanation Blade will be. Not a lot of strong and/or evasive attackers so you're kamikaze-ing to get the trigger and I think its pretty swingy on how much it actually mills. Maybe its worth it...I guess playtesting will shake that out.
