Hi! Some ideas. Mana curve is low so you don't need 24 lands. 20-22 is enough. It depends on your budget but if you want to make your deck more reliable you should take a look at Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial . Your creatures need protection so Brave the Elements would be a nice idea. Path to Exile is your removal (4 copies strongly recommended). A couple of enchantments to boost your creatures: Honor of the Pure and Radiant Destiny . Creatures: 4x Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip - transforms fast, grows fast, helps to transform Westvale Abbey  Flip. Metallic Mimic - cheap and useful. Eldrazi Monument - finisher. Sideboard: Grafdigger's Cage , and Ashes of the Abhorrent , Rest in Peace , Relic of Progenitus (graveyard hate). Good luck!

  • Dawn Charm is another great fill-in along the same lines as 'pseudo-counterspell'. Real rarity to find counterspell effects in Black or White.
  • I like the idea behind the Emerge Unscathed suggestion, though I feel that Brave the Elements would be more powerful. Rebound is nice, but if it's just in here to act as a kind of counterspell and to upset an opponent's maneuver, then I'm not sure it's worth the sacrifice of just affecting 1 target. It looks like Knight of Malice is your only non-white creature whom it would not hit.
  • If you want to go the Protection route, then you can't get too much better for your mana than Spirit Mantle . I use that one in my "Intense Aura Beatdown" deck and it's quite stellar.

Thanks for the suggestions dragonforce60. I really love the Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip and Thalia's Lieutenant . When it comes to removal, I don't want to run too much because of Thalia, Guardian of Thraben and the increased mana cost. Plus I would rather protect troops with Boros Charm for the indestructible or Brave the Elements . Thanks again for the suggestions.

I hadn’t thought about using Brave the Elements as a removal bane. It’s a good idea. As for Kinsbaile Cavalier, it costs a bit much for a 2/2. While double strike is good, it doesn’t help defense. I like using enchantments to buff up my knights and tokens but looking back I do have a little overkill.

I feel like Light from Within is overkill with 3x Benalish Marshal and 4x Honor of the Pure. I would spend those 3 slots on 2x Kinsbaile Cavalier and a 4th copy of one of your other Knights.

I also noticed you had some sideboard slots open. You could side in a couple copies of Brave the Elements to fend against removal.

You're a bit vulnerable to the removal in Modern, Path to Exile, Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt, Liliana of the Veil, Terminate, Cast Down, Reflector Mage, and Dismember are the biggest ones out there. You can play against these spells while working with heroic with cards like Apostle's Blessing, Stave Off, Brave the Elements, and Feat of Resistance. Against cards like a Liliana of the Veil you could run Windswept Heath and Dryad Arbor or spells that funtion in a similar way to Cartouche of Solidarity

Terminus is the go to sweeper right now, but outside an effect of Eerie Interlude there's not much you can do against that, but against regular sweepers like Damnation or Supreme Verdict, a copy or two of Heroic Intervention or a similar effect belongs somewhere in your main deck or sideboard

Felixlives Brave the Elements is good but I prefer Eerie Interlude despite its high mana cost. Flickering my board gets me more ETBs which has more value imo.

Thanks for the suggestions. I do agree that I need to change Luminarch Ascension as it doesn't really pay off until turn 6 at best, in addition it can cause a lot of early aggression rendering it useless in some cases except for the devotion it provides.

Regarding the Mox Amber I do agree that it's uses are somewhat limited, however it does help the mana fixing a lot especially in the late game when I have more legendary's and planeswalkers. Furthermore, my sideboard has a lot of legendary's I plan to use when I acquire the cards such as Mikaeus, the Lunarch. The land that you hve suggested will work quite well so I plan to add Eiganjo Castle and possibly Emeria, The Sky Ruin.

When it comes to the removal that you have suggested, while I do think it is extremely lacking in my deck and the cards you have suggested are quite strong. I would rather protect my creatures with cards like Brave the Elements or Rebuff the Wicked.

Lastly, since my mana curve is very high I will be adding the Knight of the White Orchid because that will be extremely helpful with my mana curve.

Thanks again for the great suggestions and comment.
