You need cheap attach equipment cards you want to heavily consider for this strategy
Ones to strongly consider in deck Champion of the Flame Magnetic Theft Vulshok Battlemaster Heavenly Blade Kemba, Kha Regent Stonehewer Giant Balan, Wandering Knight Valduk, Keeper of the Flame Akiri, Line-Slinger Helm of Awakening

Equipment is indestructible
the purpose of this card is that any card that cares about being equipped (think Valduk, Keeper of the Flame) can get this onto them super easily, and it'll stay on unless an opponent Oblivion Rings it or something.
make an aura with a similar premise

Can I also point out that Magnetic Theft and Act of Treason effects are the only ways to get these attached to our opponent's creatures? The Equip ability literally says 'Attach to target creature you control'. That means, no other creatures. Meaning that you have to have these other cards in hand to be able to use your bad equipment in any way.
Don't use equipment as removal. You totally could, however, build a deck around equipping your creatures and buffing them up a ton. There's enough support for that that you could build a fun and fairly decent(in casual games) deck. Might I point out Valduk, Keeper of the Flame and Kemba, Kha Regent?

Suns_Champion thanks for the shout-out! Yours was among the many Winota decks I looked at for inspiration when constructing my own deck. I was also very excited about another not-boring Boros commander after my Feather deck became one of my strongest to play, and while Winota is less controlling and possibly slightly less consistent, the capabilities is has are REALLY powerful under the right circumstances. I was searching for cheap, tutorable ways to make non-Human creatures, and I realized Germs aren't humans! Also, I'm hoping the Aura/Equipment subtheme helps Valduk, Keeper of the Flame (one of my pet cards) be sort of an alternative commander for the deck should Winota not be available.
My question to everyone is, how worried about you about incorporating non-Human creatures in your deck? When I built mine I wanted to maximize consistency and thus concentrated on solely Humans in the deck. I see yours and others are more of a blend. Do you find this hurts consistency or power?

Surprisingly few bomb Humans to cheat out in -.
Fireflux Squad: Token polymorph. I'm aware attack triggers won't immediately work with stuff cheated out by Winota.
Moggcatcher: Some more inter-tribal support

Want something off-beat? How about Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer ?
Wanna really have a game where you're spinning the wheel? Atla Palani, Nest Tender . Like a token Cascade!
Wanna be the unconventional token strat that goes tall instead of wide? Take a look at Feldon of the Third Path !
Krenko, Mob Boss can get out of hand, I'm sure.
You could sac your way to the win or just go wide with Prossh, Skyraider of Kher !
Need something totally typical? Might I suggest Rhys the Redeemed ?
How about Rith, the Awakener devotion tokens. I hear White has some good stuff for that?
Teysa Karlov is sitting in the middle of the Orzhov web of power. Know what that means? Lots of tokens and a lot more death.
Need to come out of nowhere with an enormous beat stick? Ulasht, the Hate Seed is your beat stick!!
Valduk, Keeper of the Flame is another beefy boi who benefits from auras and equipments a lot... as do Tana, the Bloodsower and Siona, Captain of the Pyleas ... Here's something else entirely. Voltron tokens?
Hope that was enough options.
