Skyknight Legionnaire Discussion

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?

Honestly, I think that I would go with Adriana, Captain of the Guard . The reason being that knights already have multiple lords that grant double strike, creatures that natively have double strike, and Khorvath and Sylvia have new-school Partner, so drawing either is equivalent to drawing both. In fact, if you're putting enough draw and filtering into your EDH decks, you'll probably find Kwende, Kinsbale Cavalier, or Valiant Knight before you even get to 6 mana to cast Khorvold. You'd rather just give all of your creatures +2/+2 or +3/+3 every turn than keep a 3rd layer of redundancy in the command zone.

As a result, you could just go full knight tribal. Since the de-facto Knight commander is Mardu, it's still a unique deck. You could put in Acclaimed Contender , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Sigiled Sword of Valeron , Righteous Confluence , History of Benalia , Inspiring Veteran , The Circle of Loyalty , Worthy Knight , Gallant Cavalry , Fireborn Knight , Rimrock Knight , Zhalfirin Commander , Militant Angel , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Mirran Crusader , Bloodsworn Steward , Cavalier of Flame , Cavalier of Dawn , Skyhunter Skirmisher , Crimson Honor Guard , Marton Stromgald , Accorder Paladin , Embereth Skyblazer , Ardenvale Tactician , Daring Skyjek , Raging Redcap , Skyknight Legionnaire , and Truefire Paladin . That's all specific to knights, and all the usual tribal stuff is open, as well.

You could swap out some of your aura and some of your weaker creatures for Sigarda's Aid and Hammer of Nazahn .

Since edh games last so long creatures like Mogg Sentry , Lightning Mare , Tithe Taker , Thalia's Lieutenant , and Skyknight Legionnaire are really not the most optimal kinda plays especially if you are brought into the late game.

You could throw in Loxodon Warhammer to get some good lifeline off Aurelia.

A great equipment for card draw is Mask of Memory pretty much being draw 4 and discard 2 with the double combat step Aurelia provides. This is also the same reason to put in Sword of the Animist since it will net you 2 extra basic lands in a turn.

Also with Smothering Tithe in your deck the best lesson is that wheels are your friends so pick up some of the cheaper ones like Magus of the Wheel , Khorvath's Fury , and Reforge the Soul

Here is my Aurelia list that I've had a good amount of success with in my local groups.

Aurelia's Angelic crusade

Also check out Commander Replay on Youtube, Aurelia edh decks may as well be his bread and butter and you can see him play some really highly tuned ones.
