Opening hands: 2+ lands/1 land + Mana Crypt and at least 1 Equipment. As you've got a pretty cheap source of card advantage in the command zone, you can afford to be a bit picky with your mulligans.

With the exception of Hammer of Nazahn , Blackblade Reforged , and Commander's Plate , all Equipment in the deck has an Equip cost of 2 or less. The Hammer is also the only one with an MV of over 3, with 24/31 being at MV 2 or less.

Pretty marginal but something I like doing sometimes is holding off on playing a land/leaving up two mana before attacking with Wyleth in case he draws me Reliquary Tower / Thought Vessel , so that I don't have to discard so much excessive stuff.

Kinda obvious but if you got Sigarda's Aid / Hammer of Nazahn but not Wyleth and you've got an Equipment in hand that costs less to cast than to Equip, you might want to get out Wyleth first before casting said Equipment (same goes for Cliffhaven Kitesail ).

Hold off exiling an Equipment for Semblance Anvil until you've established yourself; it's more for the mid-to-late game.

Fighter Class 's level 3 is pretty useless here. Maybe you can sometimes use it as an expensive form of removal? We're here for the double trouble of tutor and equip discount.

Sword of Hearth and Home 's flicker trigger usually don't matter, but don't forget about it if Misty is around.

Latulla's Orders falls off if you equip Sword of Fire and Ice or Sword of Sinew and Steel .

Masterwork of Ingenuity can't transform while copying Dowsing Dagger  .

Using spare lands you draw, you can chain together Sword of Feast and Famine + Waves of Aggression + Wyleth, Soul of Steel (though you might want to keep an eye on your library and eventually equip & attack with someone other than Wyleth so that you don't deck yourself (please appreciate how amusing a concern that is for a boros deck to have)). Sword of F&F is my go to for casual tutoring too as it can help empty your hand after drawing. You can obviously go for the usual Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine instead too, with Enlightened Tutor being able to get either.
