What are the best equips/auras when trying to use Utvara Hellkite as an alternative win con?

Commander Deck Help forum

I thought Blade of Selves would be a good Utvara combo, but it doesn't seem to work due to a lack of attack triggers for the creatures it creates tapped and attacking.

What equipment / auras would help put Utvara over the edge as an alternate win con in Commander?

An external haste source and Breath of Fury is pretty strong. As a general rule though, you're going to want to focus less on auras/equipment and more on either token copying ( Anointed Procession type effects) and cards like Strionic Resonator which can copy abilities or cards like Aggravated Assault to give you additonal combat steps.

Haste and anything that gives you extra combats. Dragon Tempest and Aggravated Assault bring the pain to your opponents with Hellkite. Depending on what colors you're playing and your budget Bear Umbra or Sword of Feast and Famine with Aggravated Assault is infinite Dragons with Hellkite. Helm of the Host is a lot of mana, but can make copies of Hellkite who have haste.

Or you can use the close to infitate attack combo with Hellkite Charger and Savage Ventmaw . You will need a haste enabler like Dragon Tempest or Hammer of Purphoros to make the most of it.

Essentially you get to take an extra combat step for only 1 mana each time.

Depending on what colors you’ve got for a deck some double strike stuff could be good for doubles attack triggers. Something like True Conviction , Grappling Hook , and Fireshrieker

My favorite target for New Blood ! That's a lot of 6/6 flying vamps!

I have to restrict this to just equipment because I'm playing Boros and it is really only consistently able to tutor equipment.

I suppose Helm of the Host is a replacement, but with Utvara costing 8 and HotH costing 9, PLUS the costs of tutoring the equipment... It's not very practical for a two-card combo.

Utvara Hellkite is just difficult to combo with in a equipment shell. If you want a combo, I'd go with Godo, Bandit Warlord and Helm of the Host .

Hmm... if only there were an equipment that grants additional combats. Now that would be cool B)

Not an aura or equipment, but Dragon Tempest is a great card with it.
