Peteris I like History of Benalia , I'll try it out over the stasis snares.

Hey, nice start. Cards to consider cutting to make 99:

  • Bond of Discipline
  • Campaign of Vengeance
  • Venser's Journal
  • Stoneforge Masterwork
  • Dowsing Dagger
  • Belle of the Brawl
  • Brimstone Trebuchet
  • Burnished Hart
  • Icon of Ancestry
  • Words of Worship
  • Goblin War Drums
  • Door of Destinies
  • Whispersilk Cloak

I think rather than aggressive overrun the battlefield with Knights instead play ones that are good with equipment who have evasion, more of a midrange strategy. I suggest this because there's a lot of equipment here which is taking the place of Knights and equipment are midrange cards. I think if you want to play an aggressive overrun strategy with Knights that you want to reduce the amount of equipment and increase the amount of low mana cost Knights especially two drops such as Knight of Grace , Knight of Malice , Stormfist Crusader , etc.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Temple of the False God
  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • 5x Plains
  • Embereth Shieldbreaker
  • Order of Midnight
  • Foulmire Knight
  • Vanquisher's Banner
  • Basilisk Collar
  • Cathars' Crusade
  • Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord

Good luck with your deck.

landofMordor on H:Cash, W:Your Rotating Standard cards!

Look, we all know that once Eldraine comes out, cards that used to be staples will be worth pennies. I'd like to pick up some rotating cards for Cube, so I'm proposing a win-win deal -- I'll buy your cards for slightly cheaper than they're worth now, but relative to their post-rotation prices you'll be turning a profit too.

Here's my biggest wants (although the prices are negotiable):

Lyra Dawnbringer - $3

Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants - $2

History of Benalia - $.75

Legion's Landing  Flip - $.5

Carnage Tyrant - $4

Tezzeret, Artifice Master - $3

Hostage Taker - $.5

I'm pretty sure this is a better deal than you'd get at your LGS, especially once rotation hits. I'm also willing to look through binders or current Standard decks to make up an offer worth your while. Let me know if you're interested! Cheers!

Rekindling Phoenix , History of Benalia , Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, Zacama, Primal Calamity are by far the top mythics of the rotating sets, together with T5feri, Karn and carnage tyrant, which you already have.

I always really liked white weenie/knight tribal... i think History of Benalia might be a little slow and maybe Light from Within / Honor of the Pure might be a better way to go... Condemn is probably a better alternative to Oust but Path to Exile is probably the best choice for spot removal... Some other really good knights to consider are Fiendslayer Paladin , Hero of Bladehold , Knight of the White Orchid , Leonin Skyhunter and Mirran Crusader .

I would add more removal to the list

Declaration in Stone

Devouring Light

Conclave Tribunal


I would stick to either making tokens with Precinct Captain , and Secure the Wastes , or switch to more beefy solid creatures.

Mono-White good cards I like are History of Benalia , Legion's Landing  Flip, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants , Skymarcher Aspirant .

I just posted the first version of my own insanity but haven't played it yet: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/carrier-has-arrived-4/?cb=1565631059. It definitely needs more work but is partially there- the biggest difference is that I included Saheeli, Sublime Artificer and History of Benalia for the additional token generation.
