Knight of Malice Discussion

cakewithfrosting on B/W Knights

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.

Hey, Selesnya and Golgari combined is called Abzan or Junk :)

Playing aggro and three colors doesn't really work because with aggro you want to be fast with one drops not get held up/delayed because of possible land consistency problems. An example here is Healer's Hawk is a one drop who you want to play turn one, but there's only 6 sources of white mana for a turn one Hawk. Consistently you won't be able to play Hawk turn one. Now if you cut a color out lets say black and play only two colors Selesnya then you can add more white sources for turn one Hawk. Abzan are good colors for midrange and that's the direction you should consider and it will be the direction all my suggestions are for.

The best cards here are midrange: Steel Leaf Champion, Knight of Autumn, Ferox, Shalai, Find / Finality and Trophy. All these cards can benefit from Llanowar Elves especially Champion. Turn two Champion is busted, turn two Autumn is very good, turn three Ferox or Shalai are also great. Llanowar is good with Abzan because of both Temple Garden and Overgrown Tomb, one of them can ETB untapped turn one to make green mana. These dual lands alone give you 8x sources of turn one green, add to this the 4x Forest that's already here, that's 12x sources of untapped green turn one which is a enough (minimum amount) to consistently play turn one Llanowar. If the deck's manabase can support Llanowar then the overall deck will be much better having him.

Midrange starts with powerful two drops some Abzan options are: Merfolk Branchwalker, Seekers' Squire, Kitesail Freebooter, Thorn Lieutenant, Knight of Malice and Knight of Grace. Emmara is fine, but her mana cost will be difficult to consistently make turn two. She's better in a two color Selesnya deck rather than three colors.

What two drops you play really depend on the kind of midrange deck you want to play. For instance if you include Grace, Malice or Thorn then your going for a more aggressive midrange strategy because these Knights can have 3 power with first strike and Thorn with 3 toughness is a good turn two attacker who gets even better in the mid/late game. Malice is better than Grace for the fact that you'll have more white permanents than black thanks for Knight of Autumn.

If choose to play Freebooter than your playing more of a grindy midrange strategy than being aggressive. Branchwalker is in between being aggressive and grindy and Squire is grindy. These two drops are good with three colors because either can help to explore for a possible dual land.

If you choose to include Llanowar then you'll want to take advantage of green three drops because with Llanowar's help you can potentially play a three drop turn two. Champion and Autumn are stand out three drops with Llanowar, but there's also Jadelight Ranger, Thrashing Brontodon and District Guide.

Here's an example of Abzan midrange creature base that can be aggressive:

  • 4x Llanowar
  • 4x Malice
  • 3x Grace or Thorn
  • 4x Champion
  • 3x Autumn
  • 2x Brontodon
  • 4x Ferox
  • 2x Shalai

Example of Abzan midrange creature base that's more grindy:

  • 4x Llanowar
  • 4x Brachwalker
  • 3x Freebooter or Squire
  • 4x Champion
  • 3x Jadelight
  • 2x Autumn
  • 2x Brontodon
  • 4x Ferox
  • 2x Shalai

I offer more advice. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

The manabase is the reason why i thought about changing colors, i really want to hold on to Knight of Malice though, i started experimenting with other builds around the Angels, like my RWDeathfromAbove... Miss Benalish Marshal in this though...

All things I am going to suggest are under $2 cards. If your looking for something in a higher budget let me know.

Add the following Lands. They will trigger Regna, the Redeemer the turn she comes into play.
Blighted Steppe
Scoured Barrens
Seraph Sanctuary
Springjack Pasture
Kabira Crossroads

Cards to get rid of:
Ajani's Pridemate and Child of Night They seem like they would work but they do not do enough
Arena Rector No really good planeswalker to find.
Bloodcrazed Hoplite, Knight of Malice, Oketra's Avenger, Typhoid Rats, Skittering Heartstopper, and Fate Unraveler Don't see how they fit in at all
Danitha Capashen, Paragon No Equipement but a decent creature.
Harvestguard Alseids Not running enough enchantments
Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood Not in your commander colors (has red)

Replace all of these creatures with creatures that do 1 of 4 things:
Produce a creature token
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet from your side board

Gain you life
Pontiff of Blight, Syndic of Tithes, Tithe Drinker, Treasury Thrull, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest are all good examples. In multiplayer EDH extort good.

Create Mana
Burnished Hart. Crypt Ghast He is like $3.50 but he is really good in this deck Draw a card
Bloodgift Demon and Mentor of the Meek are good examples.

You should have all your instants and sorceries do some kind of board wipe or removal. The ones that are a one shot gain life just aren't good.

Your enchantments are good.

Artifacts should be replaced with mana rocks or mana reduction effects like Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, Oketra's Monument, and Bontu's Monument.

Why no black creatures like Dusk Legion Zealot, Ravenous Chupacabra, or Knight of Malice?

Like the deck, first of all. When I saw the spoilers,this was the first deck that came to mind for me too. Just wanted to give some suggestions. Knight of Malice is better than Knight of Grace here, because you've only got 2 black permanents to "turn it on". Also, Seal Away is not as good as say Baffling End or Ixalan's Binding because the latter requires a tapped creature and your playing aggro. If their guy is tapped, your already losing. +1!!!

Hehe, nice read. I built my White with Angels with the same motivation, it's a rather consistent anti-rb, anti Zombie anti Stompy Deck. Against hard control u get serious problems, thats why this Deck started out as UW Angels, but Knight of Malice and the sideboard options made me choose Orzhov.
