Valiant Knight Discussion
2 weeks ago
Phyrexian Metamorph is the most functional clone effect to double on exemplars. Mirran Crusader is by far the most powerful knight to grace mono white. Valiant Knight is rather powerful for a knight lord Benalish Marshal is rather good as an anthem on a creature. Though your knights might want to ally with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben to better survive w/u control, Field of Ruin is also rather nice to survive tron decks. Rest in Peace and Stony Silence are white's biggest contributions next to path for modern, not having them in a sideboard is not too good an idea.

Personally I think that History of Benalia is a must for any aggro deck, but I can definitely understand if you want to keep it budget.
As other cards you might or might not want to include in your sideboard, I suggest Adamant Will for combat tricks and Luminous Bonds or Seal Away. Ixalan's Binding could also work but of course you can't bring an answer to everything with aggro (and 4 mana can be taxing).
Hope this helps! If you are interested, I also tried to craft a monoWhite Knight aggro deck before GRN. The difference was mainly in the fact I focused on Knights to use History of Benalia third effect and to exploit the active ability of Valiant Knight.

well card draw might be a tad difficult to find for white, fire and ice is about as close as you can get, but History of Benalia is also pretty close being two knights and a pump spell packed into one card. Valiant Knight might also be a tad stronger of a choice to run than kinsbaile as it survives more removal on its own and interacts much stronger with Mirran Crusader curves, really the only 3 drop kinsbaile really buffs noticeably would be an autumn pumped route, all the others it's a trade of 1-3 dmg for a bigger body.

The mana cost is hard to get to and Valiant Knight is just better

I think Midnight Reaper would fit in here perfectly. Thanks for that suggestion ill playtest that. History of Benalia is just too expensive for me tbh. Lyra Dawnbringer is justified because of her powerful interaction with the deck, but i cant add anymore high cost cards, and i dont think replacing her with those would be optimal. Was looking at Valiant Knight but chose Kwende, Pride of Femeref as the more immidiate, more permanent doublestrike mechanic. Valiant Knight is stronger, but Kwende, Pride of Femeref is faster. Ill look into Adventurous Impulse too.

Aryel is actually better than some people are giving her credit for. is a lot for a vigilant 4/4 or a 2/2 generator with removal potential buuut she is both. She's resilient to a surprising amount of removal and is a reasonable top end as she keeps generating value as long as she survives and keeps the pressure on if you're curving out.
The most obvious home for her is obviously knight tribal. Trial of Solidarity was playable even in some competitive white weenie decks not so long ago and History of Benalia does that on top of being a staple in almost every white deck at this point. If the 100US for a play set isn't where you wanna be you could make knight tribal work at an fnm level with Aryel, Knight of Windgrace, Valiant Knight and Midnight Reaper as payoffs and Knight of Grace, Knight of Malice, Cavalry Drillmaster etc as the backbone.
Something else I don't think anyone else has mentioned is the combo potential with Divine Visitation. Yes Leonin Warleader is a lot better there but maybe you want more than 4. or Visitation seems doable and two standard legal sets so far have featured 2/2 knight token generators. If enough of your token generators made knights aryel could even have a chance at being a removal spell more often than not.
