This is pretty similar to mine! Big difference I see is your focus with the Sunforger package, which is really strong, whereas I went more focus on a variety of knights with the card draw. Only real recommendation I can make is adding in Phyrexian Crusader for another potential win-con or even as a distraction to draw in hate from your other more important knights.

I have a version a little less powerful, just because I doesn't have the expesnive tutors. But here some sugestions. I really like the idea to have some other options to make our incredible "megazord", so I put Mirran Crusader and his friend Phyrexian Crusader , the have a nice body and abilities. Danitha Capashen, Paragon have a nice synergy, some kind o ramp is always good. And if you have Queen Marchesa is always good.

Protection prevents four things easily remembered by the mnemonic DEBT.

Damage- Objects with protection can not be damaged by a source that they have protection from.

Enchant/Equip- Objects can not be enchanted or equipped by something that they have protection from.

Blocked- Creatures can not be blocked by creatures they have protection from.

Targeted- Objects can not be targeted by spells or abilities that they have protection from.

If an effect does none of those things then it interacts normally with the object with protection. Phyrexian Crusader would be destroyed by Wrath of God since it does none of the four things. It would survive a Blasphemous Act since the damage would be prevented. It would be affected by all of your named cards because they do none of the four things.

I am working on building a Knight deck and trying to figure out synergies. I am having trouble wrapping my head around how protection works between creatures on your team. Looking at Phyrexian Crusader with Protection from white would it be able to Receive any benefit from white cards that buff all creatures/knights such as Knight Exemplar , Kwende, Pride of Femeref or Odric, Lunarch Marshal . Also would an enchantment that hits all creatures such Always Watching have any interaction with him?

I don't think Syr Gwyn is quite the pure "aggro" deck. Considering the relatively high cost of the commander and the fact that you need to cast equipments to make use of her, I think this deck should lean more towards a "Midrange Aggro" deck.

With that in mind, I don't think

Walking Atlas , Weaselback Redcap , Venerable Knight , Smitten Swordmaster , Foulmire Knight Quite make the cut. They are low cost, but also very low in value.

I think a cool idea would be to include some Knights that have protection against colors, so that your opponents cannot block. White Knight , Black Knight , Silver Knight , Knight of Malice , Knight of Grace , Mirran Crusader , Phyrexian Crusader are good examples.

There are also a lot of knights that provide a lot of value Puresteel Paladin or card draw, Hero of Bladehold for more aggro power.

I also think you should pick and choose your equipments. There are a lot of good equipments, but running all of them might prevent you from getting to your knights or even be clunky.

Just my 2 cents
