My intended win conditions for this deck are1) Using a board wipe and having at least 1 (preferrably more) Knight Exemplar to maintain battlefield control.2) Whether a board wipe is used or not, going the knight tribal route, making them stronger and hopefully poking damage and healing.

tested in Cockatrice....yep no splash needed. Having all plains and drawing a Emeria, The Sky Ruin is fun mid to late game. Especially if Knight Exemplar finds her way into the grave and i have another out!

Also, you don't have any card draw or search for your Knight Exemplar. In which case you could go many games without even seeing it

Knight Exemplar is not an excuse to run 11 sweepers in an White Weenie Aggro deck. Knight Exemplar itself doesn't have any removal protection of its own, so opponents can easily kill it in response to your sweeper and have your Knights die all the same.

The best way to use Knight Exemplar is to make your Knights win combat. Your creatures have a P/T boost and are indestructible, their creatures aren't. Attack and win!

And indestructible doesn't really stop removal in general. There's plenty of exile, tuck, and bounce effects in the game.

"Tribe" is a term dating back to the Lorwyn set, which had a heavy emphasis on creature-types-matter effects and introduced the tribal card type.

Examples: Bitterblossom, Knowledge Exploitation, Peppersmoke

Prominent tribes included Elves, Goblins, Faeries, Merfolk, Elementals, and Kithkin.

Now, "tribe" can refer to any creature type that typically works with creatures of that type for some benefit.

For example, Knights (Knight Exemplar), Soldiers (Veteran Armorsmith, Veteran Swordsmith, Field Marshal), and Wizards (Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Riptide Laboratory are all considered tribes that can span across multiple other creature types (Human, Elf, etc.).

Dear The7thBobba,

thank you for your comment. I used to play Knight Exemplar. I removed him from main board, because he dies very easily (Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt, Doom Blade).

Auriok Steelshaper is interesting card, but I already play Sigarda's Aid which lets me equip for 0.

This looks super badass! And very flavourful! Have you considered Knight Exemplar and Auriok Steelshaper? Have a glorious day!
