Creature — Human Knight
Soulbond (You may pair this creature with another unpaired creature when either enters the battlefield. They remain paired for as long as you control both of them.)
As long as Silverblade Paladin is paired with another creature, both creatures have double strike.

Silverblade Paladin Discussion

Mass Calcify blows up all your equipment. Why not just use Wrath of God or Day of Judgment? Oblivion Ring is flexible removal you can tutor for. Buried Ruin is a nice utility land that can retrieve a key piece of equipment that's been destroyed. Argivian Find has the same effect. Open the Armory is a second Steelshaper's gift. Silverblade Paladin is a second Fireshrieker effect and a good voltron target in its own right. On that note: why no Fireshrieker--it effectively cuts the game in half? Lightning Greaves prevents you from equipping anything else to your own dudes; replace with Swiftfoot Boots. Mother of Runes is a must run.
Land Tax, Path to Exile, and Jitte should not be "maybes"; they should be in the deck.

Thanks for your support, sava629!
I created this deck 3 years ago because I wanted a homebrew that has competitive potential. This deck is good against aggro, midrange, and combo. It has weakness against control due to their high number of counterspells and card draw to give them a great late-game.
If you prefer a more aggressive approach, you can add +3 Selesnya Charm for -2 Negate and -1 Dispel. Also, add +3 Silverblade Paladin for -3 Eternal Witness. There will be less interaction, but much more damage output.

Silverblade Paladin makes things huge!

Angelic Destiny might be useful. Holy Mantle, Spirit Mantle, and Unquestioned Authority can give her pro-creatures. You also might want to consider more umbras (for totem armor): Boar Umbra and Mammoth Umbra both have effects that would be pretty good, Eland Umbra, Felidar Umbra, Indrik Umbra, Snake Umbra, and Spider Umbra have less good effects, but do include the board wipe protection. Replenish and Retether help bring enchants back from grave right on Sigarda. Also, what voltron deck would be good without Fireshrieker? Other suggestions: Herald of the Pantheon, Silverblade Paladin, Divine Reckoning, and Sphere of Safety.

You should definitely consider Rest in Peace in your sideboard since it hoses a lot of other decks. Instead of 4 Kor Firewalker I would suggest a 2/2 split with Burrenton Forge-Tender, which has more utility for your deck. My personal opinion is that Silverblade Paladin is not that high impact and you might want to play Gather the Townsfolk as it synergises well with the rest of your deck. You can consider a mono-white token swarm strategy. In that vein, Doomed Traveler is a much better one-drop than Soldier of the Pantheon too. Metallic Mimic can be yet another Human lord in a pinch. Mana Tithe can be better than Grand Abolisher if you want to stop things on curve. And remember, if you side in Stony Silence, take out your Thraben Inspector first.

My first advice would be that your artifact count is simply too low to reliably hit Metalcraft. I would add the artifact lands (Darksteel Citadel, Ancient Den, and Great Furnace) and more strong, cheap equipment (like O-Naginata, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Sword of the Animist, Inquisitor's Flail, Fireshrieker, etc).
I've never liked Hero's Blade much, since its equip cost is so prohibitively high unless you attach it to a legendary creature.
Mirran Crusader seems both on-theme and powerful. Bastion Protector can protect your commander pretty easily. Silverblade Paladin and Duelist's Heritage give that most-sought-after keyword, double strike. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Akiri, Line-Slinger both seem really good here.
I didn't have much time to really make an in-depth analysis at the moment, so I'll take a little more time to look it over later, but you definitely get my +1 ;)

Nice list. The only thing I can think of is, that Silverblade Paladin is a bit conditional (in a meta with many removal-heavy decks, it will be too likely to catch a lighning bolt or other removal, and will make your attacks risky - but I think it's great in racing-matches), and maybe would be better in SB, to be replaced by Fiend Hunter in mainboard.

Thanks for taking a look Daedalus19876 I'll be making a few changes based on your suggestions, first is Mother of Runes is now in the deck, originally I misunderstood what she did but she has now earned a spot.
Also Scroll Rack I didn't really know how to use it properly (I'd always put something on top that I wanted and accidentally tutored and shuffled it away and other various misplays) but after reading through your primer it's an auto-include for the scroll rack + land tax combo.
Most mana doublers I've tried but found they slowed me down in the past, this deck has evolved so much however so maybe Caged Sun might help. Extraplanar Lens in my meta isn't run because it's a huge target (mainly for personal reasons, I'll just say when any of my friends play it I destroyed it so they'd also be down a land and now they seek revenge.) Had to cut it from my colorless wastes deck for that reason lol.
As for the lands I've just been testing I change between 34 to 37 lands all the time since the land base is one of my biggest weakness when deck building.
I cut Haunted Cloak and am thinking about cutting Helm of Kaldra. I only keep the helm for the off chance I have the other two pieces (or Stonehewer Giant since I'll search for both those pieces anyway) and will tutor it for an indestructible 9/9 that can't be Gilded Drake'd or Toxic Deluge'd but on it's own it's kind of a dead card. What do you think?
Duelist's Heritage and Silverblade Paladin would love a spot, I'm just bad at making cuts. I can think of one card I could cut but I don't know which to add both Silverblade Paladin can beat down on his own but if I don't have another creature he's a 2/2 and is more susceptible to removal but can be recurred with both Emeria, The Sky Ruin AND Sun Titan. Duelist's Heritage seems like the stronger of the two can be tutored with Enlightened Tutor and if I understand it correctly I can give an opponents creature double strike if they hit an opponent?? Only down side I can think of is Sword of War and Peace and Etched Champion.
Again thank you for the kind words and suggestions, I previously skimmed through your primer when building this but finally fully read it ;)
