@multimedia I really appreciate this breakdown, thank you for taking the time. A lot of these points have been on my mind lately with rotation coming. The biggest problem I see is exactly what you said, no BW land in the next set which hurts me significantly for trying to be greedy and play Benalish Marshal and still splashing black. Unclaimed Territory was great for casting Marshal and Freebooter by naming humans, but hurts me for trying to play Duress turn 1. I really need the BW shock land to be able to pull all this off.
I'm not sure which way to go with this...Knight of Malice and all the removal and sideboard options are great and make the deck more versatile but mono-white would make it very consistent but makes Knight of Grace just ok and both those knights together fill out my 2 cmc slot really well. Losing Fatal Push, Cast Out and Angel of Sanctions means I will probably increase my Cast Down and Seal Away which are still great removal.
What do you suggest I do? Cut Marshal altogether to make the mana more consistent or go mono white to keep Marshal, run Ajani and maybe make room for Novice Knight and some equipment? I guess either way you definitely like Ajani for this, and the more I think about it, I do too. Thanks!

Here are the changes I would go with:

Hey, 4x Settle the Wreckage seems like too much. In fact I don't see a need for main deck Settle at all. A sideboard card yes, but main deck, don't need it. The strategy is to play Knights each turn up until you can play Valiant Knight. Taking a turn off from playing a Knight to leave up four mana to cast Settle doesn't seem like a productive turn. Settle is the same CMC, four, as Valiant and you don't want this conflict. It's much better to draw Valiant then Settle.
I see Novice Knight, but only 2x Valeron that can allow her to attack. Consider Short Sword? It's fine because of it's low mana cost/equip cost and since it's an equipment it stays on the battlefield if Novice dies. You can equip Sword to another Knight if you don't draw Novice and then when you draw her you can equip her for only one mana.

vvo18 I'm playing a modified version that doesn't have the full knight element with the bump from Valiant Knight and missing the mini baller Novice Knight. So far it's been doing me well. I've been an off and on player, mainly off player since gatecrash. I'm hoping to start taking it to FNM this week and I'll give a report on it when I do! But I did have 4 creatures on turn 5 swing for 28. And a couple of other fun big wins on turn 4 - 6.
