Might I suggest Stillmoon Cavalier , Mirran Crusader , and Phyrexian Crusader as possible beaters?

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

Unlife on How good is infect?

I've been playing Sultai infect for a while now (converted over from simic), and I've been enjoying it a lot. More evasion with Plague Stinger is nice, and having Phyrexian Crusader in the sideboard is a welcome addition. You als get more removal with things like Abrupt Decay or Assassin's Trophy . It can be explosive, or it can be grindy depending on side and mainboard tech (I run a few extra creatures).

There’s so many errors but you did a good job though

1 The biggest mistake by far is you failed to give a sunforger package in this list

2 Bloodforged Battle-Axe is definatly missing in the list you can get a army of these axes

3 same with Sword of the Animist auto include in a equipment focus deck

4 you guys didn’t put into factor quite a bit of cards will be cut since quite a bit are not even close to very useful in edh

5 while not a perfect upgrade but Haakon, Stromgald Scourge should definatly be in it it makes all knights very very hard to kill

Oh I do have a hidden gem idea for the deck it’s call Angel of Glory's Rise and here’s why if you look at the creature types of all the knights a vast majority are humans so it will get most of your knights out of the yard

Secondly Phyrexian Crusader is a knight with infect so you could kill people very fast with it

For cuts, i'd think about removing reach creatures as that ability is worthless once you have flying already.

So:

Then I'd cut down creatures that aren't that great in their own and are just in her for redundancy like

You might also want to as m switch stronghold assassin to Attrition and run Viscera Seer as a reliable and continual sac engine.

Also, if you're feeling spicy, you can run Killing Wave . You can use it offensively to drain opponents, it just as a "sac any number of you creatures" for a single {B}, since you can cast it for X=0 and still choose to not pay for each of your creatures.
