Riftmarked Knight Discussion

you may be better off pretending its a mono-white deck with Khorvath Brightflame at the helm. Which isnt that far off from the list -the few bulk dragons.
It may be tedious, but adding lands will help immensely, both from a "commander decks with partner have a 98 card deck" stance, but also help you tune the manabase to fit your curve and deckoverall.
budget knights like Benalish Marshal , Kabira Vindicator , Lightwielder Paladin , Riftmarked Knight , and Valiant Knight may be taking a look at, as are some less budget like Knight Exemplar or Kinsbaile Cavalier
that all being said, best of luck in completing the deck .... i may have to built a KNIGHT deck now (with a dragon commander)

THE most important card in Olric is Concerted Effort . Gotta have that redundancy for a commander-theme heavy deck.
In terms of "eating your vegetables," this deck really needs ramp and card draw. Marble Diamond , Knight of the White Orchid (goes well with the knight stuff I mention below, Mentor of the Meek , Mind Stone , Endless Atlas , Alms Collector , Sword of the Animist , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Solemn Simulacrum , Boreas Charger , and Isolated Watchtower would all be good, here.
I would cut a lot of the first strike and add in more double-strikers. If you have both, first strike is useless to share. Arashin Foremost is cheap, and it's serviceable, even without the tribal synergy. Aven Sunstriker , Sylvia Brightspear , and Skyhunter Skirmisher come with flying. Silverblade Paladin can get you attacking the turn before Odric comes out. Solemn Recruit is nothing special, but it beats Master at Arms, at least.
Mirran Crusader would be one of the more expensive cards in your deck, but it's very good, and it's a knight, in case you want to add in some knight synergies, since you're heavy on the tribe. Kinsbaile Cavalier would be the best choice to support that, kind of as a backup Odric, although Valiant Knight is also pretty okay. In fact, I really like Heavenly Blademaster with Odric, too, so I wouldn't hesitate to go all in. Also, Gallant Cavalry , Call the Cavalry , and Righteous Confluence all start doing some major work by adding vigilance and making 4/2's once you account for double strike.
In terms of keyword soup, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is good. Same for Akroma, Angel of Wrath . That one is a bit expensive, but haste is hard to come by in mono-white. I could say the same for Lightning Greaves , or at least Swiftfoot Boots . Riftmarked Knight could also have a place if you go knight tribal. I suppose Sword of Vengeance could also be okay? Deathtouch is very hard to come by in mono white, although if you've got a little extra in your budget, Basilisk Collar is very good with first/double strike and gives lifelink, to boot.

Thank you whyundead3! I think Bound in Silence is a pretty good card, but to be honest, I really don't know what to get out of the main deck... The only reason I have a Big Game Hunter in main deck is that he have legs and can attack after he has done his trick... I forgot to put two of them in the sideboard (which need a lot of work), with another Big Game Hunter... I think I'm gonna to update it right now... thanks for the reminder!... I really not sure whith Riftmarked Knight, should I put it in sideboard or I'm missing something great of it?

I tried making a rebel deck a while back, really like what you're doing here.

Thanks for the comment, upvote, and love!
Riftmarked Knight does have a good duality to him, but no idea on what to take out. He would also remove the balance of white and black mana symbols in the deck. Holy Strength, Unholy Strength, and Edge of the Divinity will go in. Also Dark Favor and Divine Favor will find a way in.
hahaha Wake the Reflections would be great. You have made me decide to create an EDH deck with this theme.
You have an awesome day as well!

What an awesome theme! I love it!I think Riftmarked Knight has the right sort of duality to him.Holy Strength and Unholy Strength, I feel, have a very mirrored and exalted feel to them.You wouldn't be able to put it on most of your creatures, but Edge of the Divinity has that balanced feel to it too.
And now, a joke: Wake the Reflections. But if you put in some things that generate knight tokens, like Gideon's Phalanx, Knightly Valor, or Sorin, Grim Nemesis, you might jst get something out of it :)
Have an awesome day!

Actually, that's it in Modern for mono white, without looking at Colourless or Artifacts like Akroma's Memorial
