A possible route to take this deck is take advantage of some life gain... running Ajani's Pridemate synergizes well with Healer's Hawk . I just happen to use him in an orzhov commander build but Aryel, Knight of Windgrace combos beautifully with Josu Vess, Lich Knight and can be a good mana sink, token destroyer or repetition destroyer.

Nice deck, Try considering cards like Cast Down for additional removal and Make a Stand for sideboard ATLEAST. I'd board a few Lyra Dawnbringer for the added edge against mono-red frenzy decks. Seal Away should be something you consider for board at least. I'd drop 1 Midnight Reaper and maybe even Aryel, Knight of Windgrace as often times VK's double strike ability will often be your win con.

So, as a fellow sputh african i know all about budget decks hehe. When i look at how much a card costs i count it in terms of steers burgers, so there is no way id ever pay $20 a card, even though i live in the US now. If you really want to finish your dimir deck and splash red for bolas, it will probably be on the expensive side, since as soon as you add a third color to a deck, you need at least 10-12 duel lands to make it work. You would probably want alother copy or two of bolas or something like Doom Whisperer as your win-cons, which are expensive cards. I would suggest to stick with 1 or 2 colors for this reason. knights could be a good way to go. You could totally build a deck around Aryel, Knight of Windgrace. It wont be a protour level deck but i doubt the average player is walking around with a $500 deck back home, so you would win a decent number of games. The reason this would be on the bidget side is because most people are on the , and train. There is a angel build that is also strong, but knights are cheap compared to most other tribes. You can look into elves like i mentioned too, and then another thing you can look at is weenie, which uses small cheap creatures, makescthem a little stronger and then plays a butt ton of counterspells. The idea is to kill your opponent with a 1/1 unblockable while you just stop him from doing anything at all. Those are probably the most budget you can go while still having a solid deck. Ill put a quick example deck together for you when i get home

Aryel is actually better than some people are giving her credit for. is a lot for a vigilant 4/4 or a 2/2 generator with removal potential buuut she is both. She's resilient to a surprising amount of removal and is a reasonable top end as she keeps generating value as long as she survives and keeps the pressure on if you're curving out.

The most obvious home for her is obviously knight tribal. Trial of Solidarity was playable even in some competitive white weenie decks not so long ago and History of Benalia does that on top of being a staple in almost every white deck at this point. If the 100US for a play set isn't where you wanna be you could make knight tribal work at an fnm level with Aryel, Knight of Windgrace, Valiant Knight and Midnight Reaper as payoffs and Knight of Grace, Knight of Malice, Cavalry Drillmaster etc as the backbone.

Something else I don't think anyone else has mentioned is the combo potential with Divine Visitation. Yes Leonin Warleader is a lot better there but maybe you want more than 4. or Visitation seems doable and two standard legal sets so far have featured 2/2 knight token generators. If enough of your token generators made knights aryel could even have a chance at being a removal spell more often than not.

Are you going for Orzhov or 3-color for you deck like Abzan? If you go Abzan you can do Aryel, Knight of Windgrace then make tokens. Thallid Omnivore then sacrifice tokens, gain life and make it bigger on your turn. Poison-Tip Archer as soon as you sacrifice those creatures your opponent take damage then use the health you gained on Vona, Butcher of Magan and make her a removal piece.

Vona, Butcher of Magan is straight up better than Aryel, Knight of Windgrace, as 7 life is way easier to come by than the 6 creatures you would need to tap to kill...say, a Doom Whisperer. the way Aryel, Knight of Windgrace works also leaves you vulnerable unless you have lots of creatures on the field that can block even if you tap half your creatures to kill something. 2for1 cards like History of Benalia, Assure / Assemble, Call the Cavalry, Gallant Cavalry and other cards that create more than 1 knight would help if your idea behind this card is to use both abilities. since you are doing a black/white knight theme Knight of Grace and Knight of Malice are a must since they are probably the strongest 2 mana creatures out there if you play these colors. the name of the game is lots of creatures. you can also play a few copies of something like Rallying Roar, which allows you to use one of his abilities again. if you do stick with 2 colors Josu Vess, Lich Knight might be interesting. you can play non-knight creatures too if you really want, but then you may want to add something that can make them knights like Sigiled Sword of Valeron or Dub.

The other way you can go is to add red or green, as is splash-able, so you can go 3 colors. in green you get lots of tokens and stuff like Knight of Autumn, which is probably my favorite card in the set. in red you get mentor. i havent played around with mentor too much so i wouldnt know anything about that. red is by far my least favorite color, so i tend to only keep enough knowledge to beat them, not to play them.

the thing is though, Aryel, Knight of Windgrace is only good if you build your entire deck around it, and im not convinced he is good enough to do that.
