Sigiled Sword of Valeron Discussion
1 week ago
The obvious theme is Equipments.
The Sword Cycle, Sword of Vengeance, Sigiled Sword of Valeron, Forebear's Blade, and Sword of the Animist are great swords. Stoneforge Mystic has swords in it's art (even though she isn't holding them).
Aurelia, the Warleader, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer, Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice, and Tajic, Legion's Edge are all decent equipment commanders that are holding swords. Tajic (both versions) have the most obvious swords in their art, so I would head that direction.

Vicious Shadows actually doesn't work (nor does Stalking Vengeance, and for the same reason), because when a creature (or in this instance a token) doesn't die when it's exiled. I would suggest Warstorm Surge instead. Which I just noticed was in the maybeboard. Speaking of cards in the maybeboard, Swiftfoot Boots is probably better than Lightning Greaves here because shroud makes Valduk untargetable for equip costs. This would normally not be a problem; just equip it to a different creature for 0 mana. However with a semi-creatureless brew like this you'd have to do all your equipping on the postcombat main phase.
I might suggest some of the human-based equipment from OG Innistrad; Avacyn's Collar, Bladed Bracers, Butcher's Cleaver, Heirloom Blade could be really cool (and you could run a human or two for good measure), Sharpened Pitchfork is nice, though first strike is kinda useless, Silver-Inlaid Dagger is AWESOME, and Slayer's Plate may get some work done.
Some generally good equipments include Champion's Helm for hexproof, Chitinous Cloak to force opponents to make tough blocker choices, honestly General's Kabuto may be worth is as the ultimate protection card, you could consider Kitesail for evasion, Konda's Banner would be great and pump your tokens (and yes it would give Valduk +2/+2), Kusari-Gama would be a serious 'don't block me or I fuck you' effect, Ogre's Cleaver is honestly insane, Pariah's Shield, though costly, more or less makes you untouchable, Pennon Blade is worth the cost, the classic Short Sword, Sigiled Sword of Valeron is dece, Skullclamp is OH MY GOD, Strata Scythe is equally insane, the swords are famously insanely powerful, Trusty Machete is okay, Vorrac Battlehorns is an easy way to win fast, and Vulshok Battlegear and Vulshok Morningstar are decent.
And yes, I did slog through every equipment in Magic history to find those.
Props to Heliogabale for some good ideas on cuts. I might add No-Dachi, seems a little overcosted (also it's worth noting Mask of Avacyn has the same mana specs for an arguably better effect), Skeleton Key is not going to do anything for very long, Valduk is probably going to be too big too fast to make use of first strike (@ Sparring Collar), Browbeat is 5 damage to an opponent for 3 mana. Realistically no one is going to let you draw 3 cards.
Sorry, this comment was a looong one.

Vona, Butcher of Magan is straight up better than Aryel, Knight of Windgrace, as 7 life is way easier to come by than the 6 creatures you would need to tap to kill...say, a Doom Whisperer. the way Aryel, Knight of Windgrace works also leaves you vulnerable unless you have lots of creatures on the field that can block even if you tap half your creatures to kill something. 2for1 cards like History of Benalia, Assure / Assemble, Call the Cavalry, Gallant Cavalry and other cards that create more than 1 knight would help if your idea behind this card is to use both abilities. since you are doing a black/white knight theme Knight of Grace and Knight of Malice are a must since they are probably the strongest 2 mana creatures out there if you play these colors. the name of the game is lots of creatures. you can also play a few copies of something like Rallying Roar, which allows you to use one of his abilities again. if you do stick with 2 colors Josu Vess, Lich Knight might be interesting. you can play non-knight creatures too if you really want, but then you may want to add something that can make them knights like Sigiled Sword of Valeron or Dub.
The other way you can go is to add red or green, as is splash-able, so you can go 3 colors. in green you get lots of tokens and stuff like Knight of Autumn, which is probably my favorite card in the set. in red you get mentor. i havent played around with mentor too much so i wouldnt know anything about that. red is by far my least favorite color, so i tend to only keep enough knowledge to beat them, not to play them.
the thing is though, Aryel, Knight of Windgrace is only good if you build your entire deck around it, and im not convinced he is good enough to do that.

Interesting deck idea, i think you should capitalise on the whole historic mechanic, since you have a good engine base here, its just a bit messy. I think cards like Weatherlight and Board the Weatherlight would be useful here, as well as increasing Danitha Capashen, Paragon to a 4 of, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain to a 3 of, Valduk, Keeper of the Flame to a 3 of and Shalai, Voice of Plenty to a 2 or 3 of. Shes very strong. Of coarse this means dropping some non legendary creatures, like Champion of the Flame , Adanto Vanguard and Storm Fleet Sprinter , i like Siren Stormtamer in here for protection.
omg and you can use Urza's Ruinous Blast effectively too! Thats real nice.
Now with this Legendary synergy going on, I think 3 Blackblade Reforged is your best equipment! I'd drop the 2 Short Sword for the extra two copies. I also like Forebear's Blade over Sigiled Sword of Valeron so its up to you which one you want to run, but you'll want 2 copies over 1 of each, in my opinion. I like being able to move the equipment for free on Forebear, but making dudes with Sigiled Sword is good too. Your call here.
And yes, i hope you pull well for the land base, it will speed it up immensely!
Best of luck! +1 I'd like to see where you take this list. It looks interesting. If you got some time, i'd appreciate if you could give me some feedback on my deck? Song of the Conclave (Tokens)

You also seem to have three different ideas competing for space here. You want the life gain + Resplendent Angel Combo to work for you, you want Knight Exemplar to come out with Day of Judgment, and you're playing both angels and knights, each of which is only half your creature base (Lyra Dawnbringer only boosts the angels, while History of Benalia only benefits your knights). These are strong on their own, but aren't acting cohesively.
Also, I know that Shalai, Voice of Plenty prevents your opponent from interacting with your fancy dudes, but you're not using the handy green-related ability.
I recommend making a choice: go all knights (with minor angelic support... Sigarda, Heron's Grace?), or go stronger into angels.
If angels: Call To Serve and a whole lot more removal spells (keep killing their low-level threats until you can get good angels out to defend yourself). Pull the knight-specific cards (but keep ones that still boost angels, like Benalish Marshal).

Hey! long time!!
I'm happy you've had a similar experience with Worldslayer, I play alot of combo opponents and find that they are WAY more impacted by the removal of their game-long setups than I am, especially when they have their perfect little matrix built up and their perfect multicolored landbase... against mono white + colorless. What you said above is how it goes for me, recovery potential is high with this type of setup. MLD recovery is strong in this build - especially when you have to use it at not-so-ideal moments as often happens.
Sigiled Sword of Valeron is a decent little token pooper if you are seeing more & more edict effects, they are going to be more useful than wasting utility creatures to sac in the long run. Throws a sudden swing wide potential into your game that opponent's don't see coming. I've done this enough times with other token poopers Sword of Body and Mind & double strike.

I know I am not making any use of Danitha's second ability, and I have since moved Novice Knight to the side board for matchups with Goblin Chainwhirler and instead run Dauntless Bodyguard. I know Sigiled Sword of Valeron can be great, I just really struggle to find something I would comfortably cut for that. Even something like Helm of the Host can get out of control in this deck, but again I really don't know what it would take the place of.
