In my set Skyknight Vanguard appears as rare and Skyknight Legionnaire as an uncommon, though they should be uncommon and common. Is this a bug and/or can it be fixed?

I have replaced Skyknight Legionnaire with Sky Terror, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 2.81 to 2.79, which means that this deck now has the lowest mana curve out of all my decks. The legionnaires were nice, and the fact that they have haste made them a perfect fit for the theme of this deck, but haste is good for only a single turn, whereas menace on the terrors is good for as long as they remain on the battlefield, and the fact that they have a lower mana cost means that I can summon them earlier than the legionnaires and use the additional mana for other spells.

DemonDragonJ on Skyknight Legionnaire or Sky Terror?

I have four copies of Skyknight Legionnaire in my red/white deck, but I am contemplating replacing them with four copies of Sky Terror, due to that card's lower cost. While the legionnaire perfectly fits the aggressive theme of this deck by having haste, the terror can be summoned earlier, thus allowing me to cast a different spell on my third turn, such as Hearthfire Hobgoblin or Scourge of the Nobilis. Also, haste is good for only a single turn, while menace remains useful for as long as the creature is on the battlefield.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I replace Skyknight Legionnaire with Sky Terror?

Knight of the White Orchid is not good here in my opinion. I know Silverwing Squadron is slow, this package is for a 4 player meta that tends to go to turn 10 so its got some time. Faster meta you should probably run the boros package with Fervent Champion Inspiring Veteran Skyknight Legionnaire Embereth Skyblazer and Embercleave

Skyknight Legionnaire feels kinda off here XD

Seeing how Knights are bound to already have a lot of 3 drops and seeing that it is your weakest card.

As awesome as Gisela is, I have removed her from this deck and replaced her with two additional copies of Skyknight Legionnaire, which this deck originally had, initially, because this deck is a fast and aggressive deck that seeks to win as quickly as is possible. Making that substitution reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.19 to 2.94, which is very awesome, indeed.

I was considering replacing Skyknight Legionnaire with Skyknight Vanguard, because generating another creature every turn would be very awesome, especially in combination with Gisela and Balefire Liege, but it is more important for a creature to have haste in this combat-oriented deck.

Also, do I really need to have Glory of Warfare in this deck? It is awesome, but I feel that the liege and scourge may be sufficient to make my creatures more powerful, and replacing those enchantments with more creatures would certainly be a good thing. What does everyone else say about that?
