Silverblade Paladin Discussion

Metallic Mimic is excellent, because I am playing Infect / Combo strategy, not a Stax / Token, or Aggro style, I wasn't finding the +1 counters to be enough of an impact. Usually if I have 1 sometimes 2 Cat in play, I'll only play enablers like Silverblade Paladin or Stonehewer Giant, Rhonas the Indomitable. In different strategies would be very invaluable.
My goal is to tutor the Infect fast enough to kill a T1 or T1.5 before combo, and then power into a mid-range and enable another kill. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Still working on the consistency in the deck. Need more opportunity to play him.
Thanks for the up-vote and the suggestion, very much appreciated!

Hey, davcot, aside from the bonus blocking, wouldnt Always Watching be better than Brave the Sands or Honor of the Pure? I find that it's a good anthem card for Mono white knights, especially since, unlike mine, you have 0 token generation (And even then, it works well with mine) Kinsbaile Cavalier could be swapped with Silverblade Paladin, for less of a power play, but more of a mana advantage play. (That's a toss up to preference) I'd also consider Danitha Capashen, Paragon being swapped for Knight of the White Orchid if possible since the equipment effect is no longer velevant, although the natural bonuses Danitha has are quite good.
I'm not 100% sure why this deck is legacy, but if I suggested anything that's obviously a bad choice for the format, I apologize. I have my own mono white knights, and went through some of these cards myself!

All in all, I like the 'package' you've built here.
I don't feel like cards that only have a single keyword add a significant value to the deck. That means Adorned Pouncer, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Silverblade Paladin, Loyal Unicorn, Odric, Master Tactician, Soltari Champion and Deftblade Elite. Out of those, the most value would come from the two 2-drops for an aggressive curve early game. I would probably add Mirran Crusader and Burnished Hart as well, and Soltari Visionary is also worth some consideration.
Collective Effort and Phyrexian Rebirth are both... pretty mediocre, in my opinion. Maybe swap those for Rout and Planar Cleansing (or maybe Unexpectedly Absent) instead? I also don't think the deck really NEEDS Tithe and could maybe play something along the lines of Mind's Eye or Surveyor's Scope if you really need the early ramp. Oblation should maybe be Crush Contraband, since you're pretty good as far as creature removal goes. I would also highly recommend running Swiftfoot Boots, since Odric radiates both Haste and Hexproof and the former is especially valuable to you, imo.
In your mana base, there's really no excuse NOT to play all of Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge and Ghost Quarter so you can handle something like Gaea's Cradle or Volrath's Stronghold. You might also want to run Scavenger Grounds so you can do something against graveyards. Maybe add Sentinel Totem or Relic of Progenitus to that list for some consistency. You could also possibly run the cycling lands for white for some extra carddraw (at least the cycling desert seems worth it so you can exile graveyards twice?), but at some point you'll hurt your chances of activating Emeria.
IN: Soltari Visionary, Mirran Crusader, Burnished Hart, Rout, Planar Cleansing, Unexpectedly Absent, Mind's Eye, Crush Contraband, Swiftfoot Boots, Sentinel Totem, Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge, Ghost Quarter
OUT: Loyal Unicorn, Soltari Champion, Deftblade Elite, Collective Effort, Phyrexian Rebirth, Tithe, Oblation, Brimaz, King of Oreskos (the tokens don't get the bonuses, so they are kind of not great), Silverblade Paladin, Oblivion Ring (outclassed by other removal in your decklist), 4x Plains

Also worth noting that Silverblade Paladin still has doublestrike as its still paired, it's only it's partner that lost it.

Also, note that Soulbond does not target, so Hexproof and Shroud do not interact with your ability to Soulbond a creature.

From my own experience, a couple cards I found are decent:
Enlightened Maniac gives you two bodies, one of which is a 3/2 token, which is about on par with the other tokens your deck currently makes, and gives you a body you can throw in front of attackers since you don't have to care if the maniac dies.
Sublime Archangel is a real powerhouse and can turn one attacker into a larger presence guaranteed to get through for damage.
Silverblade Paladin gives you the opportunity to get extra damage on whatever token you target with Temmet's ability.
