Creature — Human Knight
Other Knights you control get +1/+1.
: Knights you control gain double strike until end of turn.
Valiant Knight Discussion
2 weeks ago
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.

I'm seeing a lot of budget and Standard choices, so I would suggest Temple of Silence in place of the Guildgate. After that, Knights are a common tribe, so keeping in mind cheapness - Arvad the Cursed , Benalish Honor Guard , Benalish Knight , Benalish Marshal , Blood-Cursed Knight , Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Dauntless Bodyguard , Knights of the Black Rose (maybe) and Valiant Knight .

Hey man! I got a few suggestions. Feel free to ignore any/all of them:
I kinda agree with PhaylogenX: Valiant Knight seems pretty good here (I see you've included it). Another pair of cards to consider for this type of role are Knight Exemplar and Kinsbaile Cavalier . They're like... good.
I think Wear / Tear is likely better than your Crush Contraband . It costs less to cast if you're only targeting one or the other, and it still costs less than Crush Contraband if you're using both halves. However, it IS destroy rather than exile; this is frequently not an issue, but if it is a meta call please do ignore me.
Since you're in black, you have access to the best tutors. Unfortunately, many of them are expensive: Things like Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor and Imperial Seal are gonna set you back a lot. Consider running things like Dark Petition , Diabolic Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition are all good cards.
Your rocks could use some work. I like the signets, but I like the talismans more. Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Conviction and Talisman of Indulgence are all better than their respective signets.
You may want to consider some of the death and taxes staples. Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes are good ways to protect 'ya bois. Rest in Peace can hose a lot of decks, especially the ones I play. More generally, Stax and Hatebears can blow chunks on OPs. Winter Orb can slow down opponents from responding to your on-board pressure; Trinisphere is similar but expensive. Price of Glory can disincentivize counter-magic; Aura of Silence taxes one-sidedly in your favor.
Right. That's all I got. Good luck!

I feel like Valiant Knight should be an auto-include here.

A few cards to consider adding:
Adriana, Captain of the Guard : She’s a knight who adds value in a multiplayer game.
Knights of the Black Rose : These’ll produce some card advantage.
Wear / Tear is a pretty good two-for-one in Boros.

What could be an interesting pairing and foil would be a Knight Tribal deck.
Knight Exemplar and Valiant Knight make for really powerful synergy. Mono-white Knights is a deck I use to run that was extremely difficult to stop. I would have to dig through the deck boxes to find it again, but it also used Exalted and Kinsbaile Cavalier .
I went mono-white, but you may want to go Selesnya to add ramp. Or perhaps Azorius for counterspells.
You could actually go Selesnya main board with blue-mana producing lands and counterspells sideboard. This way you can go full Bant if you need, based upon the current meta of the game.

First of all you can hide old comments by using the last part of the deck editor (having your last comment be back in november can be distracting for new comments).
Now for this deck hitting any swamps early on really hurts Knight of the White Orchid , cutting the swamps down to 1 can really help and run Concealed Courtyard (non budget, Marsh Flats or any fetch land that can grab a plains or swamp can get your Godless Shrine s).
In modern white and black has extremely powerful removal in Path to Exile (which just got a reprint in every gideon spellbook, it also will give you a Rest in Peace which many white decks are running many of in their sideboards lately) and Fatal Push (which is honestly at it's most powerful in a fetch land happy deck), 1 cmc removal vs 4 cmc is quite the difference.
Now there are many good 1 cmc knights and being able to start early is quite important for how fast the format is. Knight of the Ebon Legion can get powerful pretty fast, he even gets bigger if you take 4 dmg in a turn not just the opponent. Student of Warfare is an oldie, it also can become a sizable threat pretty quickly. Dauntless Bodyguard is also pretty decent, it not only can protect a Knight Exemplar later in the game, but it also can just be sacced to proc the stronger effect on Fatal Push or Midnight Reaper .
Having more creature buffing can also be kind of nice, Benalish Marshal and Valiant Knight can be decent at their jobs, they are at least in the majority of the deck's curve (which for modern you really want to lower it as much as you can for an aggressive deck).

Valiant Knight is in the deck mainly because there's nothing else worth using. I'm not really interested in another 4-drop and intend to replace Valiant Knight with a cheaper Knight when it's printed.
With 10 Lords, History of Benalia, and Gideon, traditional Anthems aren't necessary. I dislike traditional Anthems in this deck anyway, as they take opportunities away from putting bodies into play and aren't good draws if I face heavy removal and need to rebuild.
