Knight of the White Orchid Discussion

You're very heavy on the 4-drop slot. I would recommend cutting the Approach of the Second Sun, since you should be trying to win by bringing your opponent's life to zero. Anointed Procession is cool, and can be powerful, but it relies on you following it up with other cards. THough pricey, this should be History of Benalia as this card does not depend on being followed up by another card and produces more Knights on its own.

Instead of Murder, Fatal Push or Path to Exile are better choices. For more budget options, Declaration in Stone, Go for the Throat, Cast Down, Anguished Unmaking, and Oblivion Ring are good options.

You should be running 4 of the Dauntless Bodyguards in the maindeck, they should not be in the sideboard. You're going to be wanting to swarm the enemy in a flood of chivalry as fast as possible, and a few amazing 1 drops can help you out that way. Accorder Paladin, Knight of Glory, and Sigiled Paladin are all great 2 drop knights that help you out in attacking strong and early. Knight of the White Orchid can act as ramp, but is also a decent beater.

Always Watching is an amazing anthem effect! Plus if you run this, History of Benalia, and removal like Oblivion Ring, or Banishing Light, you could run Blood-Cursed Knight!

Mirran Crusader is extremely powerful and you should definitely be running 4 of this one.

Vona, Butcher of Magan is really cool and can give you an answer to nearly anything, and she helps pay for herself with that lifelink.

Sorin, Solemn Visitor may not make a knight, but that uptick can be a crushing blow for you enemy. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar makes knights and can drop an emblem to give your team a permanent buff.

You'll also want to use some of black's card draw capabilities, since card advantage is definitely white's biggest weakness. Don't be afraid to spend a little bit of life to draw some cards with Dark Bargain, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, or Damnable Pact just to name a few.

You should also definitely be running lands like Isolated Chapel, Concealed Courtyard, and Godless Shrine

For your sideboard, cards like Duress are very important if you're running black, I would recommend running 3-4 of these in your sideboard, since you have no other hand disruption. Celestial Purge is pretty popular, as is Timely Reinforcements. Vraska's Contempt and Anguished Unmaking can help you deal with opposing planeswalkers, and Unmaking hits any troublesome non-land, Rest in Peace, Stony Silence, and Zealous Persecution are very strong sideboard options as well.

Let me know if this was helpful or would like to know some of the reasoning's behind the suggestions!

make a card that searches for lands in white, but in a different way to green does. something like Knight of the White Orchid or Land Tax

SinBlade first of all, thanks for your suggestions !

Always Watching will replace Honor of the Pure and Brave the Sands for sure ! It'll make more room for a few new cards

I'll certainly look out for Knight of the White Orchid as it may give a real start of game advantage !(as well as being a 2/2 first strike Knight)

As for the deck format, I'm not quite sure about it ... It's mostly played in casual because I never take place in events, I may change it !

Once again, thanks for your suggestions !

Hey, davcot, aside from the bonus blocking, wouldnt Always Watching be better than Brave the Sands or Honor of the Pure? I find that it's a good anthem card for Mono white knights, especially since, unlike mine, you have 0 token generation (And even then, it works well with mine) Kinsbaile Cavalier could be swapped with Silverblade Paladin, for less of a power play, but more of a mana advantage play. (That's a toss up to preference) I'd also consider Danitha Capashen, Paragon being swapped for Knight of the White Orchid if possible since the equipment effect is no longer velevant, although the natural bonuses Danitha has are quite good.

I'm not 100% sure why this deck is legacy, but if I suggested anything that's obviously a bad choice for the format, I apologize. I have my own mono white knights, and went through some of these cards myself!

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.

What's your budget? Cause if you have money to spend on it you could add Cavern of Souls

Other knights you could consider: Student of Warfare, Accorder Paladin, Knight of Meadowgrain, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirran Crusader

Also Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, History of Benalia and Honor of the Pure would fit well here

And I don't understand so much what's the point of making tokens since you have tons of knights already ready to attack your opponents, but you want it, so here's my suggestion: why don't you add Secure the Wastes? I know it doesn't put knights, but you can decide how much warriors make and it's also an instant

First of all: what's your budget? Cause this is a tribal deck and if you have money you could add the best land for tribal decks: Cavern of Souls

You could also add Marsh Flats, Godless Shrine or Shambling Vent and increase the number of Isolated Chapel up to 2/3

Aren't 23 lands too much? Maybe could this be why you can't find as many creatures out as you need?

Other knights you could consider: Student of Warfare, Accorder Paladin, Knight of Meadowgrain, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirran Crusader

Also Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and History of Benalia would fit well here
