What do you think about Rite of Belzenlok as a 1-2 of for tokens and creature to sac stuff or Dauntless Bodyguard in the side to help protect your stuff?

Another potential addition is Dauntless Bodyguard in place for Josu Vess, Lich Knight and Arvad the Cursed. Bodyguard is cheaper in mana and money and provides protection for bombs such as Aryel, Knight of Windgrace. Also you aren’t really playing too many auras/equipments which are too clunky for Knight tribal so I would suggest running a Fatal Push or Metallic Mimic if your willing to splash some money.

This seems like a nice budget build that I would be interested in playing at FNM sometime. I am not the biggest fan of Territorial Hammerskull and I would rather see Pegasus Courser in it's place. If you wanted to build a sideboard, I think putting the last two Dauntless Bodyguard in it would be a good idea, but I'm not really sure what else would go there.

xxCopperheadx Thanks for checking out my deck. History of Benalia is amazing in this but it's just so damn expensive. Shalai, Voice of Plenty has been amazing in my deck, she pairs well with Dauntless Bodyguard if they try and destroy her and she shuts down one of the biggest threats against this deck: Settle the Wreckage. A lot of people are using Lyra Dawnbringer but I prefer Angel of Sanctions in that slot since I'm trying to remove blockers to get knights through. Kwende is great when you've been able to get the knights of malice/grace out first. Good luck!

Dauntless Bodyguard is a pretty good and cheap way to protect your all in.... except for exile of course... i have a similar deck and he does work... good luck on the weekend...

Blossoming Defense can protect the combo, but it's in a splsh color, and Dauntless Bodyguard is here to do about the same thing, AND the bodyguard can interact with benefaction, rallier, triumph and the wand. I like what your thinking!

Hey, if you don't want to include cards in the deck that will rotate in Sept. maybe add this bit of info to the deck description? Currently 4x Concealed Courtyard is one of the best reasons to play black with Knights otherwise the manabase is much better as simply mono white because of Benalish Marshal.

Consider Benalish Marshal and Dauntless Bodyguard? These are two very good Knights in Standard especially Marshal. Consider 4x Marshal, 4x Bodyguard, 4x History, 4x Grace, 4x Malice and 2x Aryel. Add 2-3x Radiant Destiny for more tribal. Removal: 4x Approach, 2x Seal, 3x Ixalan's Binding. The sideboard can have more copies of Seal as well as Down for certain matchups.

I like Approach as the main deck two drop removal spell because it can clear away a blocker. With Knights you want to be attacking and Seal is not good removal to clear away a blocker. It requires that your opponent attack you first with a creature which is problematic if a creature is just sitting back on defense.

Because Marshal is a lord for all your creatures you don't have to be pure Knights. This opens up some nice options like 3x Legion's Landing  Flip, 2x Shalai, Voice of Plenty(protection from Settle the Wreckage) and 2x Lyra Dawnbringer.

Good luck with your deck.

The afformentioned Dauntless Bodyguard is a 1-drop so it can replace Tragic Poet.

Yes it gets better value protecting a 2 or 3-drop creature later in the game on turn three or four. However if you can play it on turn one then you should, targeting itself with its ability. (This has some minor uses e.g sacrificing it means no Lifegain on a life link creature etc.)

Your choice of Fanatical Firebrand doesn't fit the theme of the deck, you're not playing mono-red aggro, It will quickly get outclassed by other creatures, the only upside is being able to sacrifice it for an extra point of damage.

I suppose another choice could be Bomat Courier. Yes it has the similar problem with Firebrand that it shall get outclassed quickly. However if it manages to get two or three swings in then when you have dumped your hand on the battlefield it can re-fill your empty hand for only single red mana. This is a more preferable ability over the Firebrands.

Those are the two options I would go with as a replacement for tragic poet. Either one or the other, but not a 50/50 split.
