There is a thing I do to improve my deckbuilding: Whenever I look at a deck that doesn't give away his commander right from the start, I'm going through the list card per card and try to guess the commander. The reason I'm telling this is I had a feeling that this might be a Lannery list after seeing Fling. You're using her as a "ramp general" basically, but have you ever considered some treasure makers like Brass's Bounty, Trove of Temptation and the like to give Lannery the possibility to do some big damage Fling shenanigans? This would even combine nively with your theft plan, as stealing opposing creatures and cannonbalking them into their owner's faces is a very pirate-y thing to do.

Awesome deck no matter what. I love these unusual commanders!

BaneOfLordran I haven't played this yet. I am still building it.

Brought Back is really in here to be a nuisance. I figure if they manage to kill Haktos, it would be a pain in the ass to bring him right back to play. It's also there to work with Fling. I could definitely see pulling it, I didn't originally have 4 haktos in here, so it's less useful now. The deck name would be less cool tho...

Sorin_Markov_1947 The work around there is to just Fling him at the opponent and then either cast Brought Back or another copy of him.

I certainly agree with Fling being situational at best, but my point with Bone Splinters is that apart from being Sorcery-limited, it's the most mana-efficient universal creature destroy you'll come across. Sacrificing a creature isn't really a big cost if you load up on Worthy Knight since those humans don't really do much unless complemented by a global like The Circle of Loyalty or Unbreakable Formation. That's all

Regardless, I'm glad to hear there were a couple decent suggestions in there for ya - hope it works out!

Apollo_Paladin Thank you for the upvote! Since the new Theros block has rolled in I already had some changes in mind. Since my deck has gone down in mana cost I have swapped out Venerable Knight for Worthy Knight. I also think that Bone Splinters & Fling aren't really a good option simply because you have to sacrifice a creature to destroy only a another creature. With sorcery speed for bone & fling only dealing as much damage as the creatures power.

I have given The Circle of Loyalty some thought as well, but I would only end up putting in 2 mainly as a replacement for Icon of Ancestry which is now also out of the deck until I try testing it out with a few more changes. Another reason that I wouldn't really put it in the deck is because of it's mana cost. Already breing a little more heavier on white mana if you're up against someone with a lot of cheap removal you will end up using a lot of mana to cast it, in which itself can also be easily taken down with Embereth Shieldbreaker which a lot of decks with red have in sideboard including myself.

Unbreakable Formation is a good suggestion, so I have put in 2 in sideboard to see how it will go.

Found this deck while searching for ideas on my MTG Arena W/B/R Knight deck; have to say you're missing out on some opportunities not including 4x Worthy Knight. This makes destroy options like Bone Splinters and Fling much more viable and mana-friendly.

Nevertheless, Upvoted +1!

You have quite a few things similar to my deck. Any thoughts on The Circle of Loyalty? I've found that if you're running lots of cheap knights this quickly becomes a 2 or 3-mana cast.

Something to consider that I've run in Cavalcade decks are Fling and Thrill of Possibility . With Fling being able to be cast at instant speed, getting a big Chandra's Spitfire and then throwing it at the opponent is usually a game-ender. Doesn't take much to do it either.

So, I have a similar deck with a creature from the same cycle: Adamaro, First to Desire . It’s quite entertaining and the deck is full of free, no-downside draw for my opponents to keep him big, followed by Fling -ish spells or spells that deal damage equal to cards in hand. It’s rather fun watching my opponents try to get hellbent to make him smaller, which only helps a mono-red deck not lose horribly.
