- Equipped creature gets +2/+2 until end of turn.
- Target creature gets -1/-1 until end of turn.
- You gain 2 life.
Equip (: Attach to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery. This card enters the battlefield unattached and stays on the battlefield if the creature this card is attached to leaves the battlefield.)

Been meaning to build Niambi all year but I keep getting distracted by other commanders. I really like your take on Azorius reanimator. Death or Glory is a pet card of mine and it really shines in this build. I also like how you snuck in the legendary sorceries to feed to Niambi. However, I'm confused by the lack of legendary artifacts!
Helm of the Host seems prime for abuse in this list.
Mox Amber suddenly pricey but very appropriate in this list.
The Immortal Sun your list is low on planeswalkers so this is powerful value.
Umezawa's Jitte swiss army knife.
Oboro, Palace in the Clouds an island that you can feed to Niambi in the late game.
Academy Ruins low on artifacts but worth it.
Hall of Heliod's Generosity really low on enchantments but probably worth it.

I realize you clearly stated the deck is just for fun, and I’m not some stickler that would demand this tagged as Casual due to the illegal cards, but there are some really good alternatives that would both make this Modern legal as well as tighten things up a bit. Colossus Hammer is a nice replacement for Umezawa's Jitte and is brutal with Kor Duelist and Puresteel Paladin. It’s a lot cheaper too.

I am making a Florian, Voldaren Scion Drain deck with a voltron sub theme. I decided to do this through equipments. So what are some good equipment for a voltron strategy. So far I have; Blackblade Reforged Blazing Sunsteel Champion's Helm Commander's Plate Embercleave Goldvein Pick Hammer of Nazahn Lizard Blades Loxodon Warhammer Prowler's Helm Ring of Xathrid Skeleton Key Sword of the Animist Umezawa's Jitte
Deck can be found here, Florian Draining Blade

Hey, sweet deck. Let's take a look at win conditions and lands. I've identified a problem with your deck: You aggressively want to control the board with your 1-3 drops. While other players are playing 6 mana bombs every turn your are trying to eke out board advantage with 3 or 4 creatures a turn.
- You don't need board wipes in this deck, they actively go against your game-plan, and in no way help you win.
- Less removal in general. I counted 18 pieces of removal in your instants and sorceries. Keep Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, and Damn and get rid of the rest. You ARE the threat, if your deck is running slowly to the point that you feel like you need removal, you need better creatures.
As for lands, use this mana base.
- 1x Ancient Tomb
- 1x Arid Mesa
- 1x Blightstep Pathway Flip
- 1x Blood Crypt
- 1x Bloodstained Mire
- 1x Bojuka Bog
- 1x Boros Garrison
- 1x Brightclimb Pathway Flip
- 1x Buried Ruin
- 1x Command Tower
- 1x Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire
- 1x Godless Shrine
- 1x Marsh Flats
- 6x Mountain
- 1x Myriad Landscape
- 1x Needleverge Pathway Flip
- 1x Orzhov Basilica
- 4x Plains
- 1x Rakdos Carnarium
- 1x Sacred Foundry
- 1x Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion
- 5x Swamp
How would I change your win condition...well you are trying to do knight tribal...

TeyoSelflessProtector Thank you for the interest in my deck! I am aware of these issues. I'm currently in the middle of a rehaul for this deck and will replace these, most likely for Plate Armor and Umezawa's Jitte.

Thanks for the feedback xram666, and I appreciate the kind words!
As for the cards, I totally forgot about Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire! I remember when that was revealed I vowed to try it out in several of my black decks (since in any context it's a repeatable black tutor), but the top deck manipulation in Yuriko is unparalleled. Thanks for pointing that out- I will definitely put that in.
As for Thalakos Seer, I am aware of it and have thought about trying it out, but what holds me back is that I used to play Baleful Strix, which performs similarly to the seer. I ended up not liking it as much because one mana is just so much better than two for enablers. Being able to play the enabler, use ninjutsu, than replay the enabler in the second main to be ready to attack and enable ninjutsu the next turn is just so good. I also find that card draw is at a bit less of a premium in Yuriko since she draws so many cards anyway, so I didn't find that pulling Baleful Strix really made much of an impact that way.
I know that a lot of people play Brainstorm, but I personally don't like it too much in commander due to it's one off nature. Setting up one attack with only the top three of my library just doesn't inspire me all that much. I'd rather just use Scroll Rack, Soothsaying, Insidious Dreams, or Lim-Dul's Vault, which are more impactful, or Sensei's Divining Top, which is repeatable, or tutor with Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire (thanks again!) or Mystical Tutor or Scheming Symmetry. Its just hard to justify the slot for me, but I am an extremely value-centric deck builder, maybe to a fault!
Umezawa's Jitte is amazingly flavorful, which is a huge plus for me. Its also just such an iconic card in magic's history, which is another plus. It's also definintely good, and could definitely work. For me my intuition is that it might just be a bit too midrange with my approach. Usually when I play creatures are going into and out of my hand, which makes the cost of re-equipping it over and over again burdensome. I've always played with Sword of the Animist, which is one of the best non-green ramp cards there is, but I usually abandon it after I get a few lands out because I want to use the creature for something else. I definitely think it could work, especially if you're disciplined enough to keep building up charges till you can dome someone with it, but I'm not sure I have the discipline! That being said, its a cool card, and if I had a copy I would probably be trying it just because it's that cool.
Thanks again for all the suggestions!

Very thorough and good primer. Definitely a +1 from me. I would just address the power level of the deck earlier.
Have you considered Thalakos Seer yet? It has CMC 2 but brings value even when brought to hand with Ninjutsu.
Another interesting card for top deck manipulation is Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire.
Also, I am very surprised not to see good old Brainstorm.
And with all the Unblockable creatures, what's your opinion on Umezawa's Jitte?
