Kinsbaile Cavalier Discussion

KeyBrains on KNIGHTS of the Ardenvale-Benalia-Gavony Metro-area

Hmmm, I do like Skyhunter, double strike is no joke. TBH Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is probably on the cutting block, maybe replace her and Riders of Gavony with a couple skyhunters or Kinsbaile Cavalier

Thing is Elesh Norn had a very memorable couple of games over the years where it's been quite the game-ender when I was at like 1 life. Clearly a sentimental 1-of.

Similarly, I do think path is probably better the plowshares, especially with the white orchid knight in the main.

Knight Exemplar Kinsbaile Cavalier Student of Warfare are the staple cards for monowhite knights. Since you are playing casual (kitchen table I assume) you can include 3 Terrain Generator instead of the Knight of the White Orchid because when youre on the draw orchid doesnt always do anything plus you can slot a better knight.
Worthy Knight makes tokens, but they arent knights so they dont get anthem effects from knight lords so they arent very useful unless you maybe run Heraldic Banner instead of the The Circle of Loyalty or better yet just go Boros (red and white) and include Skynight Vanguard and use the tokens to help reduce the cost of an Embercleave. Boros also means Inspiring Veteran Fervent Champion and Tournament Grounds and Clifftop Retreat to smooth out the mana for the 2w and 2r spells. Path to Exile would be the mot efficient removal but if its a budget deck go ahead and throw in a couple Conclave Tribunal which would also give your tokens something to do. Id cut circle of loyalty. Its a good card in commander but its really slow for other formats.

Nice list you got up there. Focus a little bit more on draw in black maybe cards like Sign in Blood or Read the Bones or Night's Whisper.

For the Knight tribe I would suggest cards like Knight Exemplar and Kinsbaile Cavalier buffing up all of your knights with these two guys especially the first one.

Further a card that I like with your bunch of equipments is Heavenly Blademaster which is no knight but a real killer in this kind of deck.

The Deck is kind of slow. Having both played and played against Voltron, the deck needs to be quick. Considering your commander is a 6 mana creature, it takes a while to get out and you would need some ramp. More artifact mana, which would also buff some enchantments like All That Glitters , is definitely needed. The Signets, The Talismen, the 3 Mana Rocks, Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , or even Sisay's Ring would all help to make sure you can cast your commander on turn 4 or 5 while also having artifacts that can be used to cast spells. For example, casting Thran Dynamo on turn 3 or 4, then tapping it to cast an equipment card.

Also, when playing equipment cards, get more cards that do things. Echo Circlet isn't needed in an aggressive deck, Nightmare Lash with 7 Swamps is not great (however you do have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , so it can be good but it is 100 card singleton), Helm of the Host is pretty bad considering the tokens won't have any equipment and won't be as powered up, and Explorer's Scope can ramp, but so slowly that it isn't worth it. Considering this is an aggressive deck, playing all the Swords would be a viable option. Not only do they buff your commander, but they also give them protection from colors, meaning that they wouldn't be able to be blocked and can then get around chumpers. Also, the swords have awesome "deal combat damage to a player" effects that can easily be taken advantage of while also staying as aggressive as possible

Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Open the Graves , Cathars' Crusade , Ajani's Welcome , Mace of the Valiant , and Embercleave all don't do much with only 10 creatures, so either play more buffing creatures like Kinsbaile Cavalier or get rid of cards that rely on creatures. I think you should get rid of em because your commander is really the only creature you'd need. Sure, a knight can give your commander double strike, but so can an equipment card ( Fireshrieker ), and for far cheaper with "Equip Knight 0"

You only had three choices of Elspeth, and you picked the wrong one. Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Elspeth, Knight-Errant are both better than Elspeth Tirel in terms of making creatures, keeping the board free, and buffing your commander. You'd probably play Knight-Errant for that second ability though

Liliana of the Dark Realms doesn't do much apart from find swamps. She doesn't actually ramp you and her second ability can do very little with so few swamps.

To get even more stuff for cheaper, Stoneforge Mystic . Not only is it a tutor, but it can put equipment onto the battlefield a) at instant speed and b) for .

Hey man! I got a few suggestions. Feel free to ignore any/all of them:

  1. I kinda agree with PhaylogenX: Valiant Knight seems pretty good here (I see you've included it). Another pair of cards to consider for this type of role are Knight Exemplar and Kinsbaile Cavalier . They're like... good.

  2. I think Wear / Tear is likely better than your Crush Contraband . It costs less to cast if you're only targeting one or the other, and it still costs less than Crush Contraband if you're using both halves. However, it IS destroy rather than exile; this is frequently not an issue, but if it is a meta call please do ignore me.

  3. Since you're in black, you have access to the best tutors. Unfortunately, many of them are expensive: Things like Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor and Imperial Seal are gonna set you back a lot. Consider running things like Dark Petition , Diabolic Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition are all good cards.

  4. Your rocks could use some work. I like the signets, but I like the talismans more. Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Conviction and Talisman of Indulgence are all better than their respective signets.

  5. You may want to consider some of the death and taxes staples. Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes are good ways to protect 'ya bois. Rest in Peace can hose a lot of decks, especially the ones I play. More generally, Stax and Hatebears can blow chunks on OPs. Winter Orb can slow down opponents from responding to your on-board pressure; Trinisphere is similar but expensive. Price of Glory can disincentivize counter-magic; Aura of Silence taxes one-sidedly in your favor.

  6. You're running a lot of basic lands. Consider Blood Moon and/or Magus of the Moon to punish more expensive decks.

  7. I think Cataclysm is probably better than Tragic Arrogance .

Right. That's all I got. Good luck!
