Danitha Capashen, Paragon Discussion
1 week ago
Haven't touched the deck in quite a while outside of throwing Hall of Heliod's Generosity in when MH came out.
There are some fun ones I'm considering too: Wellspring seems unobtrusive and interesting, especially outside of blue.
There's a lot from TBD that seem niche but might be good:
Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea might do enough.
Dawn Evangel I feel lacks targets.
Destiny Spinner looks fun.
Flicker of Fate is cute.
Transcendent Envoy over Danitha Capashen, Paragon?
I much prefer input from friends over staring at EDHREC, so I'm looking forward to what you have to suggest in general.

Woah, holy knights.
Okay. So. first thing is first. Obviously, we are going knights tribal. The second thing to think about is what is it's theme. You said you want to go King Arthur. Honestly, King Kenrith makes for a better King Arthur deck. But, we're working with Syr Gwynn, so, we are more focusing on the Knights of King Arthur.
Are you wanting more of a knight heavy creature based deck, or equipment based deck. in my deck Valiant Knights of Eldraine, I focused more on a split of equipment and knights giving me 13 equipment and a total of 11 knights including Syr Gywn and 6 non knight creatures. Now, I've built my deck to try to be as powerful as I possibly can make it. What I'm going to suggest below is more flavor and theme based.
I think a cool direction to take this would be focusing on the Legendary theme, after all King Arthur is the most legendary legend of all time. And there is a perfect card that is knightly and legendary centered and it is, The Circle of Loyalty. For each knight already on the field, it costs one less. And when it is on the the field, for each legendary spell you cast, it creates a knight, and lets you sink some unused mana into making another knight.
Okay, we have our legendary theme. Let's round this out with some legendary weapons (think Excalibur) and legendary knights. Most renderings of King Arthur has anywhere from 12-15 knights at his table. I say we go somewhere in between and pick 13 legendary knights. Looking at the gatherer, I see a total of 31 legendary knights, but only 24 possible in our colors. I'd wittle it down to these 13 knights and 1 dragon. Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Arvad the Cursed, Aryel, Knight of Windgrace, Balan, Wandering Knight, Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Kwende, Pride of Femeref, Lena, Selfless Champion, Sylvia Brightspear and her dragon buddy Khorvath Brightflame, Syr Gywn, Hero of Ashvale, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor, and Vona, Butcher of Magan.
Next, I would put in an equipment for each of the knights. So, 13 equipments. Keeping with the legendary theme, there are 18 legendary equipments. My choices for the 13 to use are Blackblade Reforged, Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip, Embercleave, Godsend, Helm of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Helm of the Host, Konda's Banner, Shadowspear, Sword of the Animist, Tenza, Godo's Maul, and Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang.
So far that is a total of 28 legendary cards. You're going to want between 35 and 38 lands in this deck, I'd personally go with 36 bringing the total up to 64 leaving 46 spaces. Out of those 46 spaces, I'd want atleast another 10 ramp spells so, I'd look into Tithe, Weathered Wayfarer, Knight of the White Orchid, Arcane Signet, Boros Signet, Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet, Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Hierarchy, and Talisman of Indulgence.
With the 36 spaces left, we probably want some card draw and tutors to get our knights equipment. Knights of the Black Rose, Puresteel Paladin, Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory, Steelshaper's Gift, Scheming Symmetry, Herald's Horn, Icon of Ancestry, and Vanquisher's Banner are all really good here giving us 11 options to dig, leaving us with 25 spots left.
Can't forget removal. I'd personally go with 7 single target and 4 board wipes. Those being Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Crackling Doom, Utter End, Righteous Confluence, Return to Dust, Rakdos Charm, Wrath of God, Single Combat, and Tragic Arrogance.
With the remainder of the 15 spots, I would fill it with some utility and cards to push through for the win. Here I would look into Knights' Charge, Master Warcraft, War Flare, Boros Charm, Unbreakable Formation, Heavenly Blademaster, Knight Exemplar, Leonin Shikari, Silverwing Squadron, Nahiri, Storm of Stone, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, Sunforger, and Sigiled Sword of Valeron.
This should be a pretty well rounded and focused deck, or at least a path for you to take if you so choose.

And here I thought I was the only one who attempted this!! You have clued me in on a load of failings in my list. That said, I can spot a couple in yours as well. Karador, Ghost Chieftain hails from Theros. Lyra Dawnbringer bears the name in the same way as Danitha Capashen, Paragon and is not from Serra's Realm, she is from Dominaria.
My list is missing one legend. Yours is missing over fifty. I'll find out which as I double-check, so

Hey, your Commanders care about two types of creatures, Dragons and Knights. This is the simplest approach to consider is add more Dragons and some Knights? A higher amount of Dragons than Knights seems better with your two Commanders because double strike with Dragons who already fly is more powerful then Knights with flying.
Dragons are high mana cost creatures therefore consider more ramp? More ramp so you can cast Dragons especially Khorvath faster. Sylvia doesn't do much until you have a Dragon on the battlefield which ramp can help with.
You can't play Gruul Locket and Orzhov Locket in a Boros Commander deck. Can only play cards that are red, white or red/white because these are the color identities of your Commanders. Cards with black and green even though they also have red or white aren't legal with Boros.
What's the budget for your deck? Cards $1 or less each to consider adding:
Mana Rocks/Other Ramp
- Boros Signet
- Talisman of Conviction
- Dragon's Hoard
- Seething Song
- Mana Geyser
- Dragonlord's Servant
- Burnished Hart
- Iron Myr
- Gold Myr
Dragons/Cards that support Dragons
- Skyship Stalker
- Dragon Hatchling
- Dragon Egg
- Lathliss, Dragon Queen
- Scourge of Valkas
- Dragon Tempest: haste for Dragons.
- Steel Hellkite
- Moltensteel Dragon
- Sarkhan's Triumph: Dragon tutor.
- Tyrant's Familiar
- Hellkite Charger
- Drakuseth, Maw of Flames
- Sarkhan the Masterless
- Dragon Mantle
Dragons who can pump their own power which is called "firebreathing" are good with double strike.
- Silverblade Paladin: soulbound can change creatures.
- Danitha Capashen, Paragon
- Thalia's Lancers: legendary card tutor.
- Mask of Memory: an equipped creature with double strike who isn't blocked does combat damage twice to an opponent meaning you draw four cards.
- Rogue's Gloves: with flying it's easier to do combat damage.
The nice thing about these equipment is the interaction with double strike. These equipment can also be repeatable draw and if the equipped creature dies, the equipment isn't destroyed, can equip another creature.
I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Aron Capashen, Lord of Benalia
Legendary Creature - Human Artificer Noble
Whenever this Aron Capashen, Lord of Benalia becomes the target of a spell or ability for the first time in a turn, counter that spell or ability
Whenever you tap an artifact for mana, add one mana of any type that land produced.
He makes the stones sing and men silent.
I'd like another character without their own card from this list: Secondary Characters

Ashiok, Dream Render's hybrid mana symbols give the card blue/black color identity and thus makes it ineligible in an Orzhov deck.
Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are creature removal that should be strongly considered for any deck that can run them. The low, low CMC and instant speed combined with exiling the target remain unmatched. You can easily make space for Swords [if you're only going to run one, pick Swords first as the additional matters far less than the land granted] by cutting Fruit of Tizerus. Despite being able to recur it with escape, doing only 2 damage to one opponent in a multiplayer format is far too little return for your investment of mana and cards in graveyard.
Sol Ring is flat out the best card in the format so unless you have a house rule in the local meta that it is banned, you should be running it.
I don't know that you're running enough auras or equipment to get much mileage out of either Sram, Senior Edificer or Danitha Capashen, Paragon. If you want to go this route, you can consider finding space for: Darksteel Mutation as it is good turning opposing commanders into statues, Blackblade Reforged, Sword of the Animist for some ramp, Swiftfoot Boots for the haste and protection, Whispersilk Cloak for evasion and protection, Angelic Destiny because a flying 3 headed dog that is now also an angel is just awesome.
Other inspiration can be drawn from the listings at EDHREC but so far the handful of people submitting decks have gone very stax-y and that may not be your cup of tea.

I have a version a little less powerful, just because I doesn't have the expesnive tutors. But here some sugestions. I really like the idea to have some other options to make our incredible "megazord", so I put Mirran Crusader and his friend Phyrexian Crusader , the have a nice body and abilities. Danitha Capashen, Paragon have a nice synergy, some kind o ramp is always good. And if you have Queen Marchesa is always good.
