History of Benalia Discussion

multimedia on Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale

4 days ago

Hey, nice budget version of Syr Gwyn. You have good card sense. Choosing the better high CMC cards, the better equipment, the better lands with the budget you're working with and leaving subpar cards out :)

Cards to consider upgrading:

  • Syr Konrad, the Grim
  • Cabal Paladin
  • Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor
  • Josu Vess, Lich Knight
  • Corpse Knight
  • Smitten Swordmaster
  • Valiant Knight
  • Spidersilk Net
  • Bladed Pinions
  • Mortify
  • Inspiring Vantage
  • Concealed Courtyard
  • Tainted Field
  • Orzhov Basilica

Cards to consider adding:

Sunforger is a very good equipment when you don't have to pay it's equip cost; repeatable tutoring for an instant and casting it. Mistveil combos with Sunforger to put the instant you cast back into your library to then cast it again. This is a powerful interaction with Boros equipment strategies. You could expand a lot with a "Sunforger package of instants" especially because playing black, but even just having a few powerful instants is enough.

Good luck with your deck.

Mannu_1978 thanks for the suggestion! However, this deck leans more toward a humans build than knights. I think History of Benalia is a little slow and I would probably have to take out Benalish Marshal for it which would remove 4 knights from the build. History of Benalia would probably work better in a Mardu knights build.

Hello I like that. With 8 knight already I would consider playing History of Benalia x3 instead of 3 other spells.

Baconofunrest on Pioneer white Colossus Hammer

i know the theme is colossus hammer, but it feels wrong seeing a pioneer white knight deck without History of Benalia especially since you can chain it with Brought Back

pikminplaya on Esper Starfield

Cast Out cycles when you dont need it and works well with starfield. I like it over stasis snare and maybe oath of kaya, but be careful to not have too many banishing light effects in a deck that plays doom foretold.

With your low creature count, brain maggot gets worse since it is more likely to get removed, doing nothing.

Another card i think would be good with starfield is History of Benalia just because of the sequencing with it. You can play it on turn 3 and it sacs itself on turn 5, then you play starfield and get it back on the next upkeep.

Sideboard probably wants Deafening Silence over rule of law for Phoenix decks unless im missing a creature combo deck in which case, i wanna see that decklist.

this deck is pristine, my friend. I would update it to some of the Cavaliers from m20, specifically Cavalier of Night . I woukld cut Blessing of Belzenlok , as there are better combat tricks, even if the creature is legendary(specifically Battle Mastery ) and all your Ajani's Welcome (No lifegain payoff). I would add in two addition History of Benalia for constaincy and a playset of Murderous Rider , sutting out Dub and 3 Moment of Triumph .

triproberts12 on Double Damage, Double Strike

3 months ago

Honestly, I think that I would go with Adriana, Captain of the Guard . The reason being that knights already have multiple lords that grant double strike, creatures that natively have double strike, and Khorvath and Sylvia have new-school Partner, so drawing either is equivalent to drawing both. In fact, if you're putting enough draw and filtering into your EDH decks, you'll probably find Kwende, Kinsbale Cavalier, or Valiant Knight before you even get to 6 mana to cast Khorvold. You'd rather just give all of your creatures +2/+2 or +3/+3 every turn than keep a 3rd layer of redundancy in the command zone.

As a result, you could just go full knight tribal. Since the de-facto Knight commander is Mardu, it's still a unique deck. You could put in Acclaimed Contender , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Sigiled Sword of Valeron , Righteous Confluence , History of Benalia , Inspiring Veteran , The Circle of Loyalty , Worthy Knight , Gallant Cavalry , Fireborn Knight , Rimrock Knight , Zhalfirin Commander , Militant Angel , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Mirran Crusader , Bloodsworn Steward , Cavalier of Flame , Cavalier of Dawn , Skyhunter Skirmisher , Crimson Honor Guard , Marton Stromgald , Accorder Paladin , Embereth Skyblazer , Ardenvale Tactician , Daring Skyjek , Raging Redcap , Skyknight Legionnaire , and Truefire Paladin . That's all specific to knights, and all the usual tribal stuff is open, as well.
