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.

stensiagamekeeper on Aryel, Knight of Wingrace ideas

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.

@ FastIsFaster I see what you mean about Aryel, Knight of Windgrace. She was really only in as more of a curiosity than anything to see how she done. I figured with the amount of tokens with vigilance I could get out her abilities would work. FNM kinda proved otherwise unfortunately. All she would end up doing is getting one swing in then eating a kill spell. I'll switch her for Valiant Knight. I appreciate the advice.

I think if you were to pursue Valiant Knight, the most logical move (in my opinion), would be removing Aryel, Knight of Windgrace. I also play Abzan knights, and I ran Aryel initially. Eventually I dropped her because I found both of her abilities a bit lacking.

The first is underwhelming in this deck (for 3 mana, I'd rather drop Mentor of the Meek, Plaguecrafter, Midnight Reaper, or Knight of Autumn if I am spending mana on a creature). I know it can be done at instant speed, but meh.

The second ability feels fine with small creatures, but it's tough to use this to deal with the larger threats in the format (which can be handled by non-creature spells. Do you want to tap 4 knights (more importantly, how often do you want to hold knights back in combat to make them available for this, since it makes them unavailable to block) to do 3 damage to something like Rekindling Phoenix? For me it comes down to this: what is a better combat interaction: Aryel, or a spell like Seal Away, Cast Down, etc. Even something like Conclave Tribunal would interest me more than Aryel, as it allows you to exile (if I'm going to use my creatures/tap them down for an ability, I'd rather exile the target than put it in the graveyard.)

Just a few thoughts.

@ tdmurrell I've been wanting to put Valiant Knight in. I'm just not sure on what to take out for it.

I like this deck a lot.

I don't have much to suggest in the way of improvements, but I do remember from experience of playing a similar deck that Benalish Marshal can be difficult to play on curve since its three white.

Perhaps as a suggestion, Midnight Reaper could be worth a shot. I find the card draw to be very important and you still have Valiant Knight as a lord.

If mono-red aggro is your bain, perhaps consider Paladin of Atonement.
