Mirran Crusader 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!

Always loved a good mono white winnie deck. Have you ever though about aether vial to cheat things in, also what about Mirran Crusader it's double strike with a sword is deadly if it lands home.

Swiftblade Vindicator works well for similar reasons Mirran Crusader does.

Stitcher's Supplier would be nice to fill the graveyard.

Which colors to you prefer for your deck?

Mirran Crusader would be fun as a 4/4. Auriok Champion and Soldier of the Pantheon would be the same color.

These three together would be resistent to most removal in the format and would help you keep alive until GPG is online.

All in all, I like the 'package' you've built here.

I don't feel like cards that only have a single keyword add a significant value to the deck. That means Adorned Pouncer, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Silverblade Paladin, Loyal Unicorn, Odric, Master Tactician, Soltari Champion and Deftblade Elite. Out of those, the most value would come from the two 2-drops for an aggressive curve early game. I would probably add Mirran Crusader and Burnished Hart as well, and Soltari Visionary is also worth some consideration.

Collective Effort and Phyrexian Rebirth are both... pretty mediocre, in my opinion. Maybe swap those for Rout and Planar Cleansing (or maybe Unexpectedly Absent) instead? I also don't think the deck really NEEDS Tithe and could maybe play something along the lines of Mind's Eye or Surveyor's Scope if you really need the early ramp. Oblation should maybe be Crush Contraband, since you're pretty good as far as creature removal goes. I would also highly recommend running Swiftfoot Boots, since Odric radiates both Haste and Hexproof and the former is especially valuable to you, imo.

In your mana base, there's really no excuse NOT to play all of Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge and Ghost Quarter so you can handle something like Gaea's Cradle or Volrath's Stronghold. You might also want to run Scavenger Grounds so you can do something against graveyards. Maybe add Sentinel Totem or Relic of Progenitus to that list for some consistency. You could also possibly run the cycling lands for white for some extra carddraw (at least the cycling desert seems worth it so you can exile graveyards twice?), but at some point you'll hurt your chances of activating Emeria.

Recommended Changes

IN: Soltari Visionary, Mirran Crusader, Burnished Hart, Rout, Planar Cleansing, Unexpectedly Absent, Mind's Eye, Crush Contraband, Swiftfoot Boots, Sentinel Totem, Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge, Ghost Quarter

OUT: Loyal Unicorn, Soltari Champion, Deftblade Elite, Collective Effort, Phyrexian Rebirth, Tithe, Oblation, Brimaz, King of Oreskos (the tokens don't get the bonuses, so they are kind of not great), Silverblade Paladin, Oblivion Ring (outclassed by other removal in your decklist), 4x Plains

Nevermind. I see now how the other cards can stall well enough until you draw into one. Still a bit risky. I suggest using Mirran Crusader

I know Sphere of Safety is potentially a bigger barrier with all of the enchantments you run, but the fact that Ghostly Prison comes down much earlier and is better without other enchantments on the field seems very relevant. Ajani Goldmane seems like he could be an absolute house in this deck as maybe a 2 of in place of Felidar Sovereign. Secure the Wastes or good old Raise the Alarm could be nice siebaord cards against aggro strategies and work with your token theme as well as having excellent synergy with Ajani's Welcome. Mana Tithe could be hilarious sideboard tech game two when opponents board in enchantment hate. Mirran Crusader and Kor Firewalker are strong sideboard options as well.

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
