Embercleave and Godsend are also fun ;) For Godsend, you'll want to exile their Commander to lock it out of the game as long as Godsend remains on the field. I also have Scythe of the Wretched in my deck, too.

My deck isn't really well built, though. Every single time I playtest it, it seems to always lose. Not sure why. Always ends up garnering a ton of hate and I always seem to draw out of order - either not getting my equipment or not getting my Knights. Oh well.

I don't really think either that mutate needs stopping in EDH, it doesn't seem very strong. With that said, you can abuse the fact that mutate stacks are exiled together for some fun stuff:

Bishop of Binding, Phyrexian Ingester, Profane Procession  Flip, Hostage Taker, Rayami, First of the Fallen, Godsend, Ixalan's Binding, Exclusion Ritual

(I don't think Duplicant works even though AFAIK the cards are exiled at the same time but I could be wrong.)

Finally, if you really want to be cruel... Show

I haven't tried any others, but Cockatrice was a Godsend for me!

Approach for that 'instant win' still requires 14 mana in 1 turn (or 7+7 mana over 2 turns). Something which is hard to do in mono-white.

I suggest removing

adding in

HELLcaster19 on Rona is maybe not bad

Wouldn't any card exiled by Rona, Disciple of Gix lose the "exiled by Rona" clause upon cast from exile as she will no longer be able to read the card in question?

Take for example, Godsend. If the exiled creature returns from exile through any means, Godsend loses its ability as it can no longer read the card in question. Even if that same creature were to be put back into exile by another source, Godsend would not regain the lock ability because it is no longer a creature exiled by it, despite previously exiling it from the board.

Here is a link that contains an interaction with Godsend and Riftsweeper:


It is loosely the same concept as I believe Rona would no longer be able to read Regardless, nice build :)

Epicurus: Well of Lost Dreams is actually a very good suggestion, I had not seen that card. That would likely generate a lot more card draw in almost all situations when we've got lifelink on board. It's great value to refill your hand later in the game if need be. And on top of that it has all the artifact synergies that our deck provides. I'll be swapping that out for Dawn of Hope!

And in regards to Godsend, I had included it in every build up to this current one. The number of times it has fallen off due to Protection from White interactions in the deck (Mother of Runes, Devoted Caretaker, Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of Truth and Justice) makes me strongly dislike running it. The dis-synergy is the main and really only reason to not run it. If you are fine with those drawbacks, or don't run the Pro-White interactions, it is definitely worth running.

Thanks for the suggestion, cheers :)

jconeil1988 on Knights Unite

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.

You are a Godsend!

You truly made this deck take shape, workable, and what I envisioned but could not put onto paper.

Thank you a hundred times over.
