Student of Warfare Discussion

I think him Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, and cards like Elite Vanguard deal out more damage in an average game than Student of Warfare for the amount of mana efficiency they entail. Student of Warfare is good in a deck that as a lot of mana left over at the end of turns, generally white weenie lists are not those decks, unless they are Aether Vial lists. I may be mistaken, as you are the deck builder, I am not, but that is my advice.

I'll probably post up a list for this here in the near future! Thanks so much for the reply!

Student of Warfare should probably be in this deck for curve considerations. It's within the tribe and in an aggro deck you need something to do on turn 1.

You might also consider Mirran Crusader over stuff like Fiendslayer Paladin because it's almost unconditionally the best knight in the entire game.

I did a hunt around for other potential one drops - though none look as good as the devil or shadow, thought i'd just post em up.

Dragonmaster Outcast - though requires lots of lands so a bit icky

Soldier of the Pantheon - sideboard material?

Mother of Runes - free protection?

Monastery Swiftspear - probably not enough spells to make it worth it

Guul Draz Vampire - possibly only useful once the game is nearing an end anyway

Student of Warfare - a 1-drop that's actually kindof a 3/3 first strike for one more mana

Looks like it could use some one drops and more utility/removal type cards.

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip could work well with a creature heavy strategy. Student of Warfare is another I might consider. Dryad Militant also mostly for the stats. Doomed Traveler is solid too.

Honestly, I feel the eldrazi temple is difficult to run with so many cards requiring specific colors. Tidehollow Sculler could be hard to cast with this mana pool.

Could help to run some more removal too. The obvious pick would be Fatal Push.

I need to check on the other discard cards but for wall of omens it's still a 2 mana creature

So instead I think that Student of Warfare works well. If I don't have another creature on my hand I can still level it up to make it stronger and works with auras as well as knights all together if I want to build a knight set.

I also purchased Angelic Page

Cheap and works great with other angels I think. What is your opinion on that?

I 2nd Dauntless Bodyguard it will protect you whole board from board wipe with Knight Exemplar plus i feel like the deck needs more 1 drops than just Student of Warfare it would help it run better and put early pressure on it as well as give you protection while you build up your board state. As for Benalish Marshal im not saying its the best but i was thinking it was a good replacement for Honor of the Pure since it will do the same thing but also act as another body that benefits from your other buffs and can swing for you

Benalish Marshal is a good knight, but I don't think it is the best or anything, but Dauntless Bodyguard is up with Student of Warfare in terms of how awesome it is. History of Benalia is right up there with some of the best three drops in white in Knights (Next to Mirran Crusader, Knight Exemplar and the like), but that is about all from Dominaria in terms of knight tribal in mono white.

Oh yeah, and good on you n0bunga for standing up for yourself to Talltail.

Nice deck! Thraben Inspector is always a nice card, and Thalia's Lieutenant would be amazing in this deck. Expedition Envoy isn't awesome, but it's a 2/1 for , which is pretty convenient. If you decide to make the deck non-budget, Hero of Bladehold could make by formidable, and Student of Warfare can get pretty intimidating if you put a little mana into it. And by the way, if you want to get rid of the other colors on your color wheel () that come from Unclaimed Territory, enter those colors when you're editing your deck in the "Exclude Colors" section. Keep up the good work, definitely a +1!
