It might be worth removing Blossoming Defense for another Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants and a Sacred Cat as the cat has great synergy with Ajani's Pridemate. Then you could go down a Leonin Vanguard for a Mentor of the Meek or Leonin Warleader.

I think your deck is in a pretty good place pre rotation. The biggest weakness I see (and this is true of most aggro decks) is that you don't have many ways of gaining card advantage. You can go 1 for 1 easily but once you've run out of gas you've either won or are in a bad spot.

I wasn't sure where to put this, so here it is.

I've been seeing this knight's decklist being kicked around and it seems pretty solid. I think Paladin of Atonement with the pain lands Shefet Dunes and Ifnir Deadlands is pretty potent. The knight lords help boost him and it can be enough life gain to put you over the top of aggro and red. Paladin of Atonement can keep building up into a bigger threat if they don't remove it and when they finally do you get value. So that's something to consider in your own list.
I do like how you included Shalai, Voice of Plenty over the other decklist. I'm not sure if it should be mainboard or sideboard, but either way it's a strong 4 drop that combos well with Dauntless Bodyguard like you mentioned.
If you have trouble with control you could include Kambal, Consul of Allocation in the sideboard. It works pretty well for me. I take out Knight of Malice or Knight of Grace for it depending on the color of the opponent's deck. They bleed out everytime they cast a spell. It's pretty helpful against certain aggro decks too (like wizards and red).

Hey, there's another reason to keep Freebooter it's another black permanent to give Grace a pump. Three plus power first strike is a real reason to play both Grace and Malice; more ways to pump Grace is good. Without Freebooter you're relying only on Malice and sideboard Blood Fast to pump Grace. I would increase the number of Freebooter to 3 or 4.
Another reason to play Freebooter with Knights is Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants. Consider 2-3x Ajani? His +1 and -2 are powerful with Grace, Malice and Dauntless and his -2 is good with Freebooter. Valiant, Ajani and Cast Out are strong four drops for Orzhov Knights.
Consider cutting Wilds for Unclaimed Territory? Wilds is really bad when two drops are so important for your strategy. Wilds also doesn't help with Dauntless which you would like to play turn one. You can name Human with Territory and be able to cast all the Knights and Freebooter with the land. Territory will speed up game play of the manabase a lot.

Great deck! +1!
What is your main use for Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants? I am making a more lifelink version of your deck and I want to know what you use him for. Right now, I think I'm going to use him for his first and third abilities, as I dont have many creatures with cmc 2 or less.
(PS I haven't posted the deck on TO yet)
