The goal is Voltron out Feather, the Redeemed by dealing 21 or more Commander damage to as many players as possible. Ideally I want to have Empyrial Plate equipped onto Feather, the Redeemed to get more value out of having a huge hand size from bouncing spells that targets a creature I control. Either that or equip Loxodon Warhammer onto Feather, the Redeemed to ensure commander damage through trample. It even turns Path to Exile as a continuous ramp spell with Feather, the Redeemed.

Another Voltron combo I run with Feather, the Redeemed is utilizing Neheb, the Eternal's ability to sink mana into Aggravated Assault to get multiple combat steps for taking out multiple opponents in one turn and If my Commander is out of commission I can sac creature tokens made from either Young Pyromancer or Monastery Mentor with Goblin Bombardment to deal noncombat damage while also adding more mana with Neheb, the Eternal. I would like to run Sword of Feast and Famine over Loxodon Warhammer in here though.

Any comments, suggestions, and/or advice is greatly appreciated.

Note that any spells you cast that target Feather (or any other creature you control) go to exile, and then to your hand and are never in the graveyard. Runechanter's Pike may not be as good as you hope.

Good point. Scroll of the Masters seems like a much better fit over Runechanter's Pike to help take advantage of casting cantrip spells with Feather, the Redeemed.

Since Feather lets you reclaim cards you played for their Aftermath or Flashback costs, I'd go nuts with them. Seize the Day is pretty great, but there's also Reckless Charge, Onward // Victory, and Insult // Injury. Maybe Spirit Flare too.

Balefire Liege might be a fun add.

Problem with Aftermath is that the spells have to be in the graveyard in order to cast them and since Feather, the Redeemed bounces spells back to hand instead of the graveyard as they resolve that leaves the player only being able to cast the half that doesn't require the Aftermath cost. Flashback on the other hand still works which is actually much more useful against mill decks.

Maybe I need to focus more on "Wheel" effects rather than Aftermath. Cards like Fateful Showdown, Heartwarming Redemption, Collective Defiance, and Molten Psyche all seem to work really well with Feather, the Redeemed. Inner Fire could also work as extra mana accel aside from Mana Geyser where as Orim's Thunder with Kicker is also solid for extra spot removal.

Already plan on adding Balefire Liege to the deck, unfortunately nobody in my area carries it so I'll most likely just order one online. Zada, Hedron Grinder and Mirrorwing Dragon seem like really good includes though I'm not particularly sold on them just yet. This just might be the EDH / Commander deck that makes Storm viable outside of Izzet.

There are other burn spells out there that can point one damage at Feather and the rest at things you want dead. Conflagrate, Jaws of Stone, Meteor Shower, Rolling Thunder, and more.

Aurelia's Fury just so happens to be one of those cards though I have also considered Impact Resonance.

I know. That's why I said there are "other" spells that can be used that way. Redundancy is nice.

Onward // Victory and Insult // Injury both still work well though:

Onward is an Instant and can target any creature. Naturally you can just keep casting it on your own creatures getting it back at EOT. However once you want access to Victory, do this: cast Onward targeting an opponent's creature while they're attacking one of your mutual opponents, which might be very helpful for you. After doing this the spell will hit your graveyard. On your turn you can grant a creature you control double strike and get the card back into your hand at EOT.

Insult will always go to your graveyard since it doesn't target. Cast Injury targeting one of your own creatures and an opponent to get Insult back in your hand.

Alternately, discard either of them to Tormenting Voice and other rummaging effects or wheels.

Kind of been toying around with Guttersnipe and Electrostatic Field / Firebrand Archer over Taurean Mauler and Sunscorch Regent though I seem to like the latter more due to their synergy with cards like Soul's Fire and Soul's Grace which I can easily get back with Feather, the Redeemed.

So I figured why not feed off of my opponents' spells to target my own spells on instead of not getting enough mileage on damage triggers from only a handful of spells that targets a creature I control? I haven't been able to test it out yet though I feel like I'm focusing too much on consistency and not enough on random cantrip spells to gain more value.
