Honor of the Pure Discussion

A good card you could consider, if you want to be mono-w is Honor of the Pure

I believe Honor of the Pure would be more suitable for this than Intangible Virtue, even though you lose Vigilance on your token creatures. Brave the Sands and Shalai, Voice of Plenty are other ideas.

Why not some Serra Ascendant?
You have no removals, no counters and no draw cards spells, meaning you just play on the draw. In my personal opinion you are underestimating too much your opponent's deck.
Cards you could consider are: Path to Exile, Oblivion Ring, Auriok Champion, Archangel of Thune, Ranger of Eos, Sun Titan, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Spectral Procession, Martyr of Sands, Baneslayer Angel, Honor of the Pure, Chalice of Life Flip, Windbrisk Heights

NensouHiebara says... #56 Why should I use Honor of the Pure? Please elaborate, because all I see it a suboptimal card:
It's doesn't have a body like the Knight Lords. It's not a value champion like Gideon. It's less impactful than History of Benalia. It's can't even buff every creature.
But you could have two Honor of the Pure for the price of one gideon, also they are a bit harder to get rid of
Honor of the Pure are also cheaper than history of benalia, they last longer as well. now they don't give you lil tokens but your deck should not rely on tokens anyways so...
Why the hell do you even have mutavault??? your deck should not need it at all, its a total waist in this deck. and that's also a lame excuse for not wanting to use Honor of the Pure
@DragonKing90 dont worry he refuses all feedback unless its overflowing him with praises. i just wish i knew how to make it stop sending me notices when people reply in here on this deck.
p.s. flyers will still beat this deck

There's no place for traditional Anthems in this deck anymore. More powerful, synergistic options have been created, and they improve this deck far better than Honor of the Pure.

you keep using the word "objectively", but i dont think you know what it means. using Honor of the Pure is not "objectively" wrong. there are plenty of "conceivable" ways to make it work.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is inherently win-more. It's only going to be beneficial when you have a board set up and aren't experiencing disruption. If the best it can do is level up Student of Warfare or allow me to needlessly burn through my hand, I can perfectly live without it.
History of Benalia has been growing on me in the past several weeks. Dominaria offered a much needed boost for Knight Tribal, and I shouldn't ignore this boon.
I'm planning on dropping the curve in this deck a bit for space. Eight 4cmc cards are no longer necessary.
The major problem I have with Kinsbaile Cavalier is its 2/2 body. A 4cmc "game-ending haymaker" shouldn't fold so easily to commonly used burn effects. Valiant Knight is a better 4cmc option than Cavalier. It doesn't give double strike right away, but it has the Lord boost and a more resilient body.
I say Flagstones of Trokair 'does nothing' because it has no tangible utility. Its selling point involves being removed from the field, which most decks can't do outside its own interaction with the Legend Rule. More often than not, said ability is pulling off a very poor Fetchland impression.
Flagstones doesn't offer anything relevant for this deck, so it's never going to be a part of it.
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is the choice between an Anthem, an endless legion of Knights, or an indestructible 5/5. Honor of the Pure is only ever an Anthem. He may cost twice as much, but that mana is well spent considering his flexibility and raw strength.
Honor of the Pure's smaller cost doesn't really help, as there's never an ideal time to cast it:
- Turn 2) If I have a Student of Warfare on board, it's leveled to Lv2. Otherwise, a 2cmc Knight is cast. Leveling up Student is better than casting Honor of the Pure. A 3/3 with first strike beats out a vanilla 2/2. Casting Honor of the Pure instead of a 2cmc Knight prevents me from attacking next turn.
- Turn 3) Aside from a Turn 1 Student, this is the earliest this deck can begin attacking. My options now include a Knight Lord or History of Benalia. Playing a Knight Lord is an additional body to develop my board presence and may be giving Student/the 2cmc Knight indestructible. History of Benalia begins setting up a power play on Turn 5. I'm also experimenting with Sigiled Paladin, a creature that boosts the lone attacker on this turn while leaving mana open.
- Turn 4) At this point, I'll have two available attackers. This would be the first turn I would consider casting Honor of the Pure, except Gideon is now active to either drop his Emblem or stonewall my opponent with Knight tokens. Another Knight Lord or activating Mutavault to conserve resources are also options.
Of course, if my opponents have interaction to disrupt this curve, Honor of the Pure becomes a much weaker play with my board kept small. Gideon can still function in games with heavy attrition, repopulating my board and clocking my opponent by himself.

"being cheaper isn't enough of an edge to be considered over an objectively more powerful card".
yes it is. even a single mana can make the difference. the difference is even bigger when comparing 2 mana to 4. its literally double. in the case of gideon vs Honor of the Pure, you're forced to use gideons +1 first if you want it to live when you create the emblem. otherwise you've just spent 4 mana on an emblem you could have spent 2 on. there are 2 problems with using gideons +1 on his first turn in play. the first is he doesn't have haste. the second is that he can just be attacked, preventing you from even getting an emblem at all.
