MrBoombastic I love playing with Aryel, Knight of Windgrace . You make a fair point with Seal Away so I made the change.

Also if I was to go up to 4x History of Benalia what would you suggest I take out in it's place? I was half thinking a Midnight Reaper .

As mtwoods444 suggested, I'd definitely go up to 4x History of Benalia . Most decks that have them, want to see as many as possible. Being a dedicated knights deck, you want them even more. Being dead against board wipes is true for every single creature in the deck, but History often gets to keep at least 1x 2/2 afterwards.

Seal Away is quite mediocre vs. something like Sultai, because they have quite a lot of main deck answers for it. There's generally a lot of strong enchantments in Standard right now. Mortify dodges the enchantment hate and hates on them itself intead.

Glad to see someone actually putting Aryel, Knight of Windgrace in their knight deck. She's awesome!

mtwoods444 It's not a issue to go up to 4x History of Benalia it has tons of value, the only reasons I don't go up to 4 is because I find that I usually draw at least 1 per game already which is all I really need, and board wipes can make it into a dead card, which is why I have Unbreakable Formation in sideboard to help against it. As for Mortify I typically only really need to use it when I need to remove a legendary creature or an enchantment, I keep seal away in for decks that don't mind their creatures dying, say like the Golgari deck for example. It also feels good when an opponent swings with something huge at you like a Ghalta, Primal Hunger and for 2 mana you can stop it in it's tracks.

If budget's not an issue, I think going up to 4x History of Benalia would be beneficial. That card just provides so much value and its third chapter is bonkers in a dedicated knight deck like yours. Less important, but also have you considered putting Mortify into the main deck, maybe over Seal Away ? It's just so flexible (though more expensive).

I would ditch Benalish Marshal . For XXX devotion you really need about 23 sources to cast it on turn three which you just cant get in a tri colour deck. Many selessnya 3 drops could take it's place ( Knight of Autumn , History of Benalia )

have you Considered Hydroid Krasis if you already have 1 or 2 they can fit well in this deck rather than chemisters for the card draw. (although if you have not their price is soooo steep atm :S)

Greetings fellow Knight! This looks like the fine beginning to a valiant Knight deck! Consider taking this fine card with you: History of Benalia

Hey redbird97,

I think that in this deck you may use some Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , because the tokens that he creates are Knights, and they have sinergy with History of Benalia . Also Gideon, Ally of Zendikar can create (with the ultimate) his emblem, that it's like a lord to your tokens.

In the sideboard, I think that Sundering Growth can be a great artifact/enchantment hate card.

You're already running a lot of knights, so making the deck a knight tribal deck in addition to a legends deck would be feasible. Here are some legends I would include:

1 or 2 x Josu Vess, Lich Knight

1 x Elenda, the Dusk Rose

2 x Danitha Capashen, Paragon

2 x Aryel, Knight of Windgrace

To support knight tribal:

4x History of Benalia

And also strong legendary spells:

1x Primevals' Glorious Rebirth

2x Urza's Ruinous Blast

1x Yawgmoth's Vile Offering

I'm not sure how much red puts in the work in this sort of build. If do go for knight tribal you may want to go Orzhov.
