Knight of the White Orchid

Creature — Human Knight

First strike

When Knight of the White Orchid enters the battlefield, if an opponent controls more lands than you, you may search your library for a Plains card, put it into play, then shuffle your library.

Knight of the White Orchid Discussion

Hey, consider Tithe , Knight of the White Orchid and Mistveil Plains ? Tithe and Mistveil are excellent with Sunforger and Knight is nice to put a Shock land or Mistveil onto the battlefield. Tithe especially when playing five colors because it can potentially tutor for two Shock lands or one Shock land and Mistveil.

Consider Mardu as base colors instead of Boros? Because of the expensive deck budget I think playing only Boros is hindering your deck more than helping it; after all you can play all colors because of Najeela. Mardu gives you more black for some nice Warrior interactions ( Mindblade Render , Blood-Chin Rager ), combat interactions ( Tymna the Weaver , Azra Oddsmaker ), tutors ( Demonic Tutor , Diabolic Intent ), tokens ( Bitterblossom ) and to strengthen the Sunforger package ( Anguished Unmaking , Fire Covenant ).

Really cool deck idea. I think Pitiless Horde could be replaced with some better early game creatures since it doesn't really synergize that well. Knight of the White Orchid could help with some ramping if you adjust your landbase accordingly. Bloodgift Demon is a good card for your strategy and can net you some card draw. Dark Confidant or the cheaper Pain Seer could be good options for early game card advantage as well. Either way, neat deck. +1 from me.

No problem, sagramore! Knight of the White Orchid is a great card, and I almost always consider it if I'm playing white. And yeah, Brisela, Voice of Nightmares is pricey, but they can be stupid good. A buddy of mine pulled both halves in packs, and he runs them in a reanimation deck that goes turn 2/turn 3 Sheoldred, Whispering One into turn 4/turn 5 Brisela. Needless to say, it's disgusting to play against.

Thanks again, Mojomuffin - I've swapped the Elbrus for a Knight of the White Orchid which is not only a keyword creature but ramps directly to battlefield if you miss any land drops or if someone else ramps harder. Will see how that goes!

Also I forgot to mention this in my other comment, take all of the forests out and replace them with plains. There are some pretty intensive mana requirements like Knight of the White Orchid and Benalish Marshal that you can't afford to have any non-white sources in the deck. Also, Heron's Grace Champion is the only green card so it would be best to maybe have at most one forest if you really feel the need to.

I would start with the EDHREC pages for enchantress and for mono-white. The big concessions you have to make with mono-white in commander are lack of card draw and ramp. For that reason, the first cards I would put in the deck are Smothering Tithe , Knight of the White Orchid , Boreas Charger , Myriad Landscape , Oreskos Explorer , Solemn Simulacrum , Wayfarer's Bauble , Tithe , Gift of Estates , Land Tax , Endless Atlas , and Alms Collector . Depending on your build, you may then want Sram, Senior Edificer , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Well of Lost Dreams , Sword of Fire and Ice , Skullclamp , Adanto, the First Fort , and Sword of the Animist .

There are a lot of soldiers out there, but some of the must-haves I feel you're missing are Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Preeminent Captain , Evangel of Heliod , Nomads' Assembly , Launch the Fleet , and Deploy to the Front . High Sentinels of Arashin and Elite Scaleguard could also be very powerful, depending on how much +1/+1 counter stuff you plan on doing.

If you're going to play the Earthquake deck, you might as well play Truefire Captain , Spitemare , and Boros Reckoner .

I think the deck could also use some more "vegetables" cards. You should be running Boros Signet , at minimum, but Boros Keyrune , Boros Locket , Mind Stone , Sword of the Animist , and Knight of the White Orchid should probably be in the conversation, as well. Vandalblast , Aura of Silence , Crush Contraband , Return to Dust , etc. are all removal you might consider over the abundance of creature removal you have. In terms of card draw, being tribal, you could look into Vanquisher's Banner could also do work.

As for cuts, you shouldn't be running Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse in a 2-color deck. Ancient Amphitheater , Needle Spires , and even Stone Quarry are all strictly better without cards that care about land types or Landfall. The deck thinning is inconsequential in a 99-card deck, and you'd rather have the flexibility. Catapult Master, Hour of Devastation (you know it removes indestructible, right?), Deafening Clarion, and Hammerfist Giant all seem pretty suspect to me, just on card quality. Rather than Deafening Clarion, Firesong and Sunspeaker seem better with the Earthquake theme.

Hey, lots of good cards here and this is a good start for a deck built around Angels. You say in the description "Uses few artifacts to speedily get additional angels out" consider expanding on this? It's the right strategy to use since Avacyn costs 8 mana :)

Cards to consider adding:

Do you have Scroll Rack ? I see it in the sideboard; if you have it play it main deck, card is very good at helping to draw an Angel every turn and has fantastic interaction with Herald's Horn. I see Extraplanar Lens, this card works much better with Snow-Covered Plains then normal Plains. Snow-Covered reduces the number of opponents who can benefit from Lens. If you imprint a Snow-Covered Plains instead of Plains then only opponents who play Snow-Covered Plains get the mana bonus.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Always Watching
  • Angelic Chorus
  • Angelic Exaltation
  • Brave the Sands
  • Radiant Destiny
  • True Conviction
  • Dragon Scales
  • Door of Destinies
  • Akroma's Memorial
  • Cryptic Gateway
  • Moonsilver Spear
  • Akroma's Vengeance
  • Sunblast Angel
  • Subjugator Angel
  • Serra's Guardian
  • Seraph of Dawn
  • Resolute Archangel
  • Malach of the Dawn
  • Lightkeeper of Emeria
  • Angel of Invention
  • Angel of Condemnation
  • Shattered Angel
  • Exquisite Archangel

Many of these cards I suggest to cut are anthem effects. I don't think Angels need so many of these effects since they're already powerful flying creatures; they don't benefit enough from so many anthems. Replacing anthems effects with ramp lets you actually play Angels faster which I think is more important than pumping them since you can't pump Angels if you don't have any on the battlefield. Lots of other high mana cost (CMC six plus) Angels have potential to clog your hand, not able to cast them. You already have your powerful eight mana Angel in the Command Zone because of this consider cutting a lot of other high mana cost Angels to help to reduce the avg. CMC of the deck which is currently high at 4.5.

Good luck with your deck.
