good combos, I like it..without exiling Knight Exemplar (from library), there is no chance.. If you like playtesting, here is a deck of mine for you (sideboard needed):

Kabira Vindicator would be my pick, and maybe adjust the counts so that you can include 3 or possibly even 4 copies so they're more reliably obtained early-game.

The Kabira Vindicator is just a bit too high mana cost for my liking, personally, not to mention it taking extra turns worth of mana to pump it up just to be on-par with some of your 3-mana drops like Benalish Marshal and Knight Exemplar , which obtain essentially the same effect for far less mana.

This is... pretty fantastic. May need more Dromoka, the Eternal (easily the second most devastating Dragonlord, in my opinion) and possibly Utvara Hellkite, Heirloom Blade, and absolutely Drogskol Captain, maybe Stromkirk Captain. Urza's Incubator, Obelisk of Urd, maybe Captivating Vampire, Battletide Alchemist, a Banneret (ie Bosk Banneret), Knight Exemplar, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid (which may not seem that great but at very least it's an additional Kindred Discovery), the mercenaries (ie Cateran Brute, Moggcatcher, Rathi Assassin) Pheres-Band Warchief, the harbingers (ie Flamekin Harbinger, Treefolk Harbinger).

Hey man, thanks a lot for the suggestions. As for Midnight Reaper and Kinsbaile Cavalier I feel like with 10 cards above CMC 2 that are all important to the deck (Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Knight Exemplar, and Crib Swap), it wouldn't have room for more. It's kind of the same issue with Altar's Reap, there wasn't a ton of good CMC 1 cards for this list so it's got a lot of CMC 2 cards, and the value of those has to be really high to balance things out.

Forgot too that with all those knights, Knight Exemplar looks good too.

Nice deck! I would recommend Kinsbaile Cavalier and Knight Exemplar, even thought they cost a bit more. I think it would be worth it to add those. They are game winning cards in this deck even though they only cost 4 and 3 mana. With these cards, you would still be in your budget range.

Thanks guys, I'm trying not to spend too much more money on this deck. I just updated it with some changes I made recently with some card I already have. I'm considering just going mono white and replacing the Knight of Malice with Knight of the White Orchid and running like 20 plains, but I'm not too sure what to replace the Cast Down and Fatal Push. One thing I was considering is adding Day of Judgment to work with the Knight Exemplar.
