Valiant Knight Discussion
2 weeks ago
Murphy77 sorry for the late reply. A friend of mine asked me to try out Elenda, the Dusk Rose as well which I am still yet to do, I do find Vona, Butcher of Magan is actually not usually a dead card, for example if i'm playing against the mono red deck, I can gain so much life off of Vona easily especially If I have Valiant Knight in play too, it can make my opponent focus their burn on Vona instead of me as well.
Bladebrand I don't think i'll try to fit it into this deck as there isn't a real need to I can see it working well with the first/double strike aspect of things. But my knights can get quite strong, plus with the first/double strike they can usually take down big threats, Vona and Aryel, Knight of Windgrace already have some great removal potential as well if I really need to take something down in order to win.
I don't really want to replace Midnight Reaper some reasons being it gives you card draw when you sacrifice Dauntless Bodyguard and taking 1 damage off of that isn't really a big issue, it also is a knight itself so I can be buffed for extra damage, but feel free to swap him out for something else say Orzhov Enforcer prehaps

Lord_Europa With the deck being a more focused on you can fit Benalish Marshal in quite well, you can use it in place of something else, which would be most likely instead of Aryel, Knight of Windgrace , Vona, Butcher of Magan or even Valiant Knight . Though I personally like the idea of the extra removal to help deal with certain decks, like for example a deck full of flying creatures. I'd still take Valiant over Benelish because It can give a way to dump mana or provide a lot of damage with double strike and it is just slightly harder to kill.

THE most important card in Olric is Concerted Effort . Gotta have that redundancy for a commander-theme heavy deck.
In terms of "eating your vegetables," this deck really needs ramp and card draw. Marble Diamond , Knight of the White Orchid (goes well with the knight stuff I mention below, Mentor of the Meek , Mind Stone , Endless Atlas , Alms Collector , Sword of the Animist , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Solemn Simulacrum , Boreas Charger , and Isolated Watchtower would all be good, here.
I would cut a lot of the first strike and add in more double-strikers. If you have both, first strike is useless to share. Arashin Foremost is cheap, and it's serviceable, even without the tribal synergy. Aven Sunstriker , Sylvia Brightspear , and Skyhunter Skirmisher come with flying. Silverblade Paladin can get you attacking the turn before Odric comes out. Solemn Recruit is nothing special, but it beats Master at Arms, at least.
Mirran Crusader would be one of the more expensive cards in your deck, but it's very good, and it's a knight, in case you want to add in some knight synergies, since you're heavy on the tribe. Kinsbaile Cavalier would be the best choice to support that, kind of as a backup Odric, although Valiant Knight is also pretty okay. In fact, I really like Heavenly Blademaster with Odric, too, so I wouldn't hesitate to go all in. Also, Gallant Cavalry , Call the Cavalry , and Righteous Confluence all start doing some major work by adding vigilance and making 4/2's once you account for double strike.
In terms of keyword soup, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is good. Same for Akroma, Angel of Wrath . That one is a bit expensive, but haste is hard to come by in mono-white. I could say the same for Lightning Greaves , or at least Swiftfoot Boots . Riftmarked Knight could also have a place if you go knight tribal. I suppose Sword of Vengeance could also be okay? Deathtouch is very hard to come by in mono white, although if you've got a little extra in your budget, Basilisk Collar is very good with first/double strike and gives lifelink, to boot.

If you are going to go tribal I would suggest that you pick one tribe, it will make your deck more consistent. Overall I would suggest going Knights, but if you want to go angels you could do that too.
Dauntless Bodyguard is some good protection
Josu Vess, Lich Knight is a funny card that can close the game if you can kick him.
The Immortal Sun shuts down Planeswalkers, the buff and card draw is also very nice.
Ethereal Absolution can help a lot against token decks while also giving your creatures a buff
If you need more mana Smothering Tithe is good, especially against the spam-draw decks.
You don't have to take all these suggestions, but I hope they give you something to think about. I know that I want extremely heavy on the knight theme, but that was because I like them and have built a deck.

If you want anymore ideas I would highly suggest taking a look at it.
I hope that I could be helpful!

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.
