Knight of Autumn Discussion

As an additional P.S. ...
2019 is just getting started of course, but we've actually had six Artifact hate cards in the Top 20, over the last two weeks: Abrade #2, Ceremonious Rejection #6, Nature's Claim #7, Stony Silence #9, Ancient Grudge #14, Knight of Autumn #20.

Wilderness Reclamation is kind of usless since we only have 1 adapt creature and 99% of the time we use Simic Ascendancy , Hadana's Climb Flip or Rhythm of the Wild to cheat the counter on, it was considered in the early stages of development in more of a control/ turbo fog build but spending a card on turn 4 that adds nothing to tempo seems like a waste of time.
Biogenic Ooze is way to slow and weak to removal there is a insane ammount of removal going around and in control decks, our cuttent build with the hydras is to slam it and get instant value towards the win con. Galloping Lizrog is in the deck as a finisher, it wins the game on the spot and also its a 5 drop 3/3 that does nothing although from a lot of testing we decided it is more versitile and wins the game just as often as Biogenic Upgrade which was in its slot before lizrog was spoiled.
Repudiate // Replicate doesnt work in our deck as a copied hydra doesnt come with the counters and dies instantly. Biomancer's Familiar doesnt work in this deck either because there is only 1 adapt creature. Frilled Mystic is a very good magic card however contributing nothing to counters and a 3/2 body is mostly irelevent especially in a deck thats is looking to tap down to play the biggest hydras possible ahead of curve. Essence Capture is meh in our deck as due to large hydras opponents creatures are mostly irrlevent and as the incidental +1/+1 counter is nice, you ccan look back at out earlier revisions we had stuff like Knight of Autumn and Domri, Chaos Bringer that are good cards with incidental +1/+1 counter options but due to the nature of the deck we are commited to big hydras and to make that game plan less efficient to run a 4/3 for 3 that only got us 1/10th of the way though Simic Ascendancy is just dumb.
the reason we arnt full control is because tapping down for a hydra minus 3 land is prett damn obvious tht there is a counter there and also sad especially if you didnt need the counter that turn which is why out sb has Rhythm of the Wild and Hadana's Climb Flip rythem giving uncounterable hydras haste or a extra counter is really strong towards a stright beat down plan and Hadana's Climb Flip is crazy you play it transform it on a hydra and then its a land that more then doubles the leathality of your creatures also mad synergy with Incubation Druid . even though we dont want to be countering stuff, not running 3x Negate would just be throwing away some matches and buys valuable time against control before you can Banefire them to death

Big fan of this strategy. Working on trying to figure if we can make some sort of modern-esque pod deck? A big reason I love Vannifar in current standard is the ability for Kitesail Freebooter/Ravenous Chupacabra/Thrashing Brontodon/Knight of Autumn/Deputy of Detention. These are all spells in a creature, to make for some serious value with Vannifar.
If a combo can be found as an easy wincon with Vannifar, this deck could be really broken. Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, 2xRona, Disciple of Gix and a Chamber Sentry is the best I have found, but that doesn't do much more than infinite casts, so I don't know what is left. Any thoughts on a version with black and without red?

Cutting the Prized Amalgams for 4x Death Barons and cutting the Butcher Ghouls to bump the 3x of zombies to 4 seems good to me, you can cut blue in favor of Stony Silence, Knight of Autumn, Assassin's Trophy, Remorseful Cleric, and Eidolon of Rhetoric/Damping Sphere
Holding up counterspells seems like it conflicts with the goal of dropping zombies and it would tax your manabase a lot less since your only maindeck blue card is Prized Amalgam and a vanilla 3/3 that only recurs if you have a Gravecrawler in the yard feels iffy to begin with without ways to mill it quickly, I really like the idea of the deck!

I love playing red, but Burn has become less and less enjoyable over the past few months, with the addition of Collective Brutality and Knight of Autumn to the format. Also, Arclight Phoenix-based decks are almost faster than burn. All of that makes Burn not a great choice anymore IMO.
I've been looking at Mono Red Prison for a while, but I'd like to have your opinions on the deck.
It seems like a lot of fun to pilot, but also very clunky. Do you have (or know anyone who does) experience with the deck? Is it a good choice in such a fast meta (hardened scales, Arclight decks, Dredge)?

Oh yes, one more thing! Knight of Autumn is better than Reclamation Sage in the sideboard now, I think. One could argue "but it's 1GW instead of just 2G" but in a company deck that doesn't bother enough to not prefer it over RecSage.

TheRedGoat: I have thought about those type of situations. It is pretty hard trying to stop those triggers, especially with just reactive spells. We do run a lot of proactive permanents like Humility and Torpor Orb to deal with heavy creature decks. We have Overburden and Mana Breach to assist us with heavy land ramp decks. Other then that I do not think there is anything else we can really use for "trigger hate". I think we expect to see a lot of cards like Aura Shards and Knight of Autumn type cards while playing, but our biggest worries are actually the cards that wipe the board. We sort of loathe cards like Cyclonic Rift and Purify because it is hard for us to rebuild if we through our cards out there. which is why we should play with that in mind and try to think ahead of our opponents. Figure out their decks and make sure not to toss everything out there. While we are proactive players, we can still be reactive with our choices.
In my opinion, counter spells like Negate, Swan Song, Dispel, ect.. are fine. They allow you to have an ability to counter spells cheaply with ease. They also work well with multicolored decks and All in combo decks like Food Chain and Storm. Granted, I am a big advocate of running the "Catch all" counter spells because they are good in all situations majority of the time, but only cards like Mana Drain, Counterspell, Force of Will,Pact of Negation, ect.. while they are able to hit anything they always come at a greater cost. these would be used more sparingly on more spells that are either threats or might end up winning the game for the other players. To be honest, running a good balence of both of them would help make your deck a bit more resilient against other control decks and also let you interact with other players.

xaarvaxus Thanks! Great suggestions.
I have already removed Knight of the Reliquary.
And you're 100% right - Glowrider does not belong here. I'm not sure what I was thinking in keeping it.
As for Ant Queen & Soul of Theros, I am cutting both. I think my original plan that included them is long gone. On that note, I'll also be cutting Fleetfoot Panther. Wolfbriar Elemental is also getting the ax.
Thanks for all of the suggestions.
