Hey rodrake. As with many of my budget decks, the mana base could use a lot of help - Port Town or Temple of Enlightenment would both be relatively cheap replacements for Azorius Guildgate . Beyond that, you could probably replace Opt or Court Hussar with better card draw or selection. Maybe the new Drawn from Dreams ?

Gotcha, I think the Kytheon cards might be a flavor stretch, but Gideon is cool so why not.
The Omnispell Adept seems out of place as most of your instants and sorceries are pretty cheap.
I loved me some Court Hussar back in the day.

Any I feel like it's probably a no, but what are some thoughts on Vendilion Clique? Court Hussar is just a holdover from the Emeria days, and I'm sure there are other things to cut as well. Maybe in the board at least?

The following cards have been downshifted and will be Pauper legal when M25 is released.
Borrowing 100,000 Arrows
Dragon's Eye Savants
Geist of the Moors
Some of these will certainly see play in current brews or will inspire new ones. Which of these are you most excited about? I'm really happy about Ruthless Ripper, Fencing Ace and Loyal Sentry. Gattison is probably psyched about Hordeling Outburst !

@TheDuggernaught - This is a very rough list. I'm not glued to two colors but I at least want w/b. And yes necrogen mists is in place of LotV. If i'm building a deck I am even slightly considering I try to keep it somewhat budget. Court Hussar is very interesting if I can repeat its effect multiple times. Ethersworn Adjudicator seems it could be too much mana for this deck but perhaps not. I think I'm leaning more towards the blue splash as it's more interesting and that's usually what I try to do when making homebrews. Green is probably more practical but meh who cares. Knight of Meadowgrain is in for lifegain that is hard to remove with haakon in our grave.

How set are on 2 color? I only ask as I am not sure there is much pay off playing Haakon with the knights you currently have. I really like the Knight of the White Orchid with the current shell though. I think I would be tempted to try and make a light splash of green or blue. green gives you Knight of the Reliquary -- which also synergies well with you shell and has some nice interactions with Knight of the White Orchid. Blue would give you Court Hussar -- which can give some nice card selection and can also play nice with Elenda, the Dusk Rose. Ethersworn Adjudicator is a bit expensive as far as cmc goes, but he can be a house. I have won games off his back in Esper control shells. He is almost kind of like a Celestial Colonnade that is vulnerable to some different removal, and instead of being uncounterable by virtue of being a land, has some extra utility in the form of a built in Vindicate. Mirran Crusader is also a card. But that might be more aggressive than what you are looking to be in this list. It might be a little cute, but Forerunner of the Legion might okay? It can tutor your Elenda, your Nameless Inversion, or Crib Swap. And then I am not 100% sure of the interaction, but it might also be pretty neat with Olivia, Mobilized for War? but even if that interaction works, it might be too cute, lol.

Jeskai, huh? Just have to squeeze that last color in there? Can't make do with 2 colors?
If your budget doesn't permit for fetch and shock lands, forget about it. Your deck will then always just be a bad version of some other decks. Trying to make a game happen by throwing Mana Leak and Lightning Bolt of basic lands, is just not the same as doing it of fetched shocklands, and recurring them with Snapcaster Mage.
But you could make a UW-emeria control deck: Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Sun Titan, and a pile of things you can dig out from GY with those 2 - like Court Hussar, Pilgrim's Eye, spellbombs. You can get pretty creative with that part of the deck.
