Ugh, sorry these guys aren't being very helpful. Here, I'll offer some serious advice on switching this deck to Legacy.
-2x Baneslayer Angel -1x Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite -1x Heliod, God of the Sun -1x Hero of Bladehold -4x Knight Exemplar -2x Knight of Meadowgrain -2x Knight of the White Orchid -4x Mirran Crusader -2x Stillmoon Cavalier -3x Student of Warfare -2x Flickering Ward -3x Honor of the Pure -2x Oblivion Ring -1x True Conviction -4x Tithe -2x Emeria, The Sky Ruin -1x Kor Haven -6x Plains -1x Sejiri Steppe -1x Sword of Body and Mind -1x Elspeth, Knight-Errant
+4x Phyrexian Revoker +4x Thalia, Guardian of Thraben +4x Stoneforge Mystic +4x Mother of Runes +3x Flickerwisp +3x Serra Avenger +2x Aven Mindcensor +1x Brimaz, King of Oreskos +1x Spirit of the Labyrinth
zandl and julianjmoss can be really mean sometimes. They could have just helped you with some suggestions, at least. You already have most of these cards in your deck (10 Plains and 4 Swords to Plowshares ), so budget shouldn't be much of an issue.
My suggestions should give you a decent Knight deck to start going to tournaments with. Don't listen to these other guys. Knights is definitely Legacy viable, especially with a list like the one I gave you.
Hammering out the sideboard and mana base.
Spirit of the Labyrinth is purely vs. UWx Control. The plan there is to just go under them.
Polymorphist's Jest and Hour of Need pull extra duty for Monsters/Green and Black Devotion. They answer the Stormbreath Dragon , Pack Rat and Lifebane Zombie problems. I do question the Hour of Need spots.
Fiendslayer Paladin is mostly for Rw Burn. Against Black Devotion and Boss Sleigh it feels like a win more card.
I would like to go up to 12 Blue sources but the only way I see doing that is cutting a Plains for an Azorius Guildgate or third Mana Confluence . I'm thinking the tap land would be better. Five come into play tapped lands seems excessive. It's already rare for me to have a turn one Soldier of the Pantheon .
Cool deck. How's your mana base during your games? I feel you can remove 1 more Plains for maybe an Obelisk of Urd , Soul of Theros , or Avacyn, Guardian Angel . I'm also not a fan of Oppressive Rays in your sideboard. I would rather have Mortal's Ardor , Devouring Light , or maybe even Mass Calcify .
Planar Cleansing hits more stuff than Day of Judgment /Wrath of God and Supreme Verdict just hits more. I believe they're just superior sweepers. The cleansing is very costly, but you might be able to profit of a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx anyways, while verdict would only need four Hallowed Fountain s (which are Plains ) instead of the flagstones...
Cut all copies (In the mainboard) of liliana, rats, maggot and then cut 1 plains. Add 2 hero's downfall, 1 herald of torment, 2 eidolon of Countless Battles, 2 soldier of the pantheon and move 2 silence the believers to the mainboard adding 1 more to the SB. Then add 1 typhoyd rats to the SB.
So in all:
-2 Liliana Vess
-2 Typhoid Rats
-4 Brain Maggot
-1 Silence the Believers (SB)
+1 Typhoid Rats (SB)
This may require testing, but I think it would pay off to at least try it out. Hope that helped you out, and +1 for the great deck! :D
Phalanx Leader is not as good as people would like to think. It only thrives in white weenie decks. The WW cost will screw you over more often than not..... Example, you only have a Plains and a Temple of Triumph . You need the red source for Madcap Skills , Boros Charm , and Coordinated Assault . Phalanx just won't get played.
I think a better mainboard option is Soldier of the Pantheon ; it just runs faster, bottom line.
