Benalish Marshal Discussion

Hey, due to the color requirements here I don't think Flower / Flourish is helping enough because it can't find a black source. Flower is a card you want as 4 of because you want to consistently be able to cast it turn one. 2x Flower isn't consistent for turn one and it becomes a bad draw in the mid game where you care less about lands and you can't yet cast six mana Flourish. Consider cutting Flower and adding 2x more Plains? Knights are an aggro deck, but more than other aggro you're counting on hitting your third and fourth land drops with only 22 lands and 2x Flower this will be difficult.

Consider adding Unbreakable Formation , cutting Marshal? Formation's three mana effect added to +2/+1 of History can wreck your opponent. Marshal's mana cost is not friendly with a three color manabase because you need both Tomb and Cemetery. Currently Five lands can't be used to cast Benalish Marshal which is a lot. Instead of trying to build your manabase around Marshal who requires 20+ white sources, build it around History while also having enough green and black to consistently play cards of those colors too.

Find / Finality and Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants is good card advantage for Knights.

Good luck with your deck.

With all the mana doubleers you have, You wouldnt need to hold as many lands open for your instant speed cards. Cut Seedborn Muse . Also Replace Sanctified Charge charge with Inspired Charge . Its not as mana heavy, and when only one creature can be blocked, first strike won't matter. Also Cut Heartwood Storyteller , since you have 58 cards that will make opponents draw cards when they are cast. Also there are 11 cards which give a static buff to your board. Maybe cut some of the low impact ones, like Glorious Anthem or Benalish Marshal , since just +1/+1 isn't as impactful as some of the other anthems.

Kabira Vindicator would be my pick, and maybe adjust the counts so that you can include 3 or possibly even 4 copies so they're more reliably obtained early-game.

The Kabira Vindicator is just a bit too high mana cost for my liking, personally, not to mention it taking extra turns worth of mana to pump it up just to be on-par with some of your 3-mana drops like Benalish Marshal and Knight Exemplar , which obtain essentially the same effect for far less mana.

You won't always be playing against a black deck, so you may be a little overboard with Knight of Grace, Knight of Glory and Fiendslayer Paladin. In preference I'd run 4x Accorder Paladin, 2x Knight of the Holy Nimbus and 4x Mirran Crusader. Otherwise you have a decent mana curve, so your deck should flow reasonably efficiently. I might be tempted to swap out 2x Honor of the Pure for Throne of the God-Pharaoh, you have Knight Exemplar providing a pump too... Since they are knights, it would be remiss not to mention Benalish Marshal Hero of Bladehold and Kinsbaile Cavalier. Hope this helps, good luck with your brew.

Phyrexian Metamorph is the most functional clone effect to double on exemplars. Mirran Crusader is by far the most powerful knight to grace mono white. Valiant Knight is rather powerful for a knight lord Benalish Marshal is rather good as an anthem on a creature. Though your knights might want to ally with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben to better survive w/u control, Field of Ruin is also rather nice to survive tron decks. Rest in Peace and Stony Silence are white's biggest contributions next to path for modern, not having them in a sideboard is not too good an idea.

Avacyn's Pilgrim and any of the other 2/1 for 1 humans that have been printed over the years, for modern you're starting off quite a bit late on average, having a lot more 1 drops will greatly improve the deck.

I would also suggest improving upon your land base so you can easily run a turn 2 green creature into a Benalish Marshal. nearly any land that can make this possible would work in your favor.

You may also want some form of removal for the deck, ideally you'd want Path to Exile, but there's many similar spells that will work somewhat as well (though not nearly as well) like Declaration in Stone or Fiend Hunter.

Militia Bugler could also work as a decent card advantage creature for the deck.
