Knight of the White Orchid Discussion

Mike94 on Odric's Soldiers

Hi jgee, If you are looking to build Odric I would suggest adding Knight of the White Orchid and Endless Horizons. Since you are in mono-white ramp and card draw are going to be hard. I see you already run Skullclamp but I would also add a Mask of Memory. Stonehewer Giant and Hammer of Nazahn are also very strong inclusions if you want to utilize more equipments.

I also have an Odric deck, it's mainly build as a 1vs1 commander but can easily stand its ground in multiplayer games. So if you're looking for inspiration, have a look> - Odric's Holy War -

Goodluck with the brewing!

@lagotripha Ill look into Knight of the White Orchid in play testing. It is a solid recommendation for the deck and may help staying on curve. Im not certain about Weathered Wayfarer for Mikaeus, the Lunarch.

I highly reccomend cutting the number of extraplanar lens and wells to just one of each- you need to get the deck turning on faster and more reliably. A playset of Knight of the White Orchid will immensely improve things, and I'd run a couple of Weathered Wayfarer in place of a pair of Mikaeus, the Lunarch.

Having a backup to your commander is always good, so Concerted Effort could be a good inclusion. Mirran Crusader is another powerful source of double strike, and with Concerted Effort echoing protections, you could even give your entire team protection from two of the most popular colors. I feel like you could use a little more cheap ramp in the deck. Knight of the White Orchid gives you first strike, and also ramps you if you're behind, and Weathered Wayfarer, while not actually ramping you, gets you your utility lands and makes sure you keep hitting your land drops. I'm not sure about this last suggestion, but Sword of Vengeance seems pretty sweet with all the keywords it gives. It not only gives first strike and vigilance, which are pretty easy to come by on other creatures, but also trample and haste, which are very powerful abilities to have.

Few changes I'm considering, what y'all think?

Sepulchral Primordial or Chainer, Dementia Master. One turn return of 3 or return over multiple turns.

Animate Dead or Phyrexian Reclamation. One time deal or reusable.

Souldrinker or Unspeakable Symbol. Same cost of life, Symbol could however be used politically.

Knight of the White Orchid or Grand Abolisher. Don't really want to lose the ramp, but white is our secondary color and nothing else to replace really.

I've done some playtesting with this and against it, I have some suggestions.Right now its biggest issue is not having a strong early game. 2/2's are ripe for removal, and every modern deck will have a fetchland sitting waiting to cast Path to Exile or Fatal Push whatever creature you get out there first. I like Knight of Sursi as a turn one play, but it still doesn't get you anything on the board. I'd recommend a one drop creature. Dauntless Bodyguard stays in tribal and is pretty nice, but is more of a later turn benefit with his ability. Deftblade Elite may work well in attracting targets for an aggro deck, since he has a built in Lure. Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip comes to mind as well.. Knight of the White Orchid is a pretty standard modern card, and you can always use ramp. I'm not a fan of Suq'Ata Lancer, I'd look more into ways of getting you bigger drop guys out there. I'd add some card draw Dragon Mantle helps with that and devotion.

Good build, the stacking flanking looks like it can add up quickly. I'm curious if the banding mechanic works well with flanking. Stinks that Jabari's Banner and Telim'Tor are banned in modern. Maybe this could work better as a legacy deck?

Reflector Mage could be good to bounce things and prevent them from being recast for a turn. If you're running Peregrine Drake you may as well run Palinchron, and also Phantasmal Image or Deadeye Navigator for the infinite mana. Deadeye is of course amazing with a deck full of ETBs anyway. Eldrazi Displacer is another option.

Diluvian Primordial and Luminate Primordial are some pretty powerful creatures to blink that help the control theme.

Sunblast Angel should wipe out only your opponents' creatures since your creatures will be untapped after blinking. Scourge of Fleets can help take care of a lot of tokens and smaller creatures.

Knight of the White Orchid might be able to ramp you if there are some green decks with lots of land.

Kozilek doesn't work with blinking because you need to cast it for the card draw.

Boros has a lot of shortcomings when it comes to EDH. The color combination is particularly bad at ramp and card draw among other things. Some cheap additions that could make your list more consistent/competitive and address some of the inherent problems with Boros are Mentor of the Meek, Knight of the White Orchid, Recruiter of the Guard, and Thalia's Lancers. White has some of the best creature recursion in the game and I see you already have Sun Titan in your list. Reveillark and Karmic Guide are some other great options when it comes to recurring creatures form the graveyard. One more suggestion might be to get some more win conditions Aurelia, the Warleader and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight are two cards that can closeout games if left unchecked.
