Legendary Creature — Human Knight

Survivors your opponent control can't block, and they can't attack you or a PW you control

When Varchild Leaves the battlefield, gain control of all Survivors.

Nice. A few suggestions, given your new theme:

Hazoret's Favor is built for this deck.

Mogg Cannon is less powerful, but a backup sac outlet and cheap.

Mark of Mutiny is a good threaten for Greven.

Traitorous Instinct is basically Malevolent Whispers v0.9.

Treacherous Urge gets any creatures your opponents think they can keep in-hand until Greven leaves the field.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Goblin Spymaster , Hunted Dragon , and Hunted Horror will make sure you have a steady stream of creatures to kill.

Molten Primordial , Insurrection , Mass Mutiny , Captivating Crew , Angrath, the Flame-Chained , Conquering Manticore are all notable Threatens that are missing.

Auger Spree doubles as removal and card draw. Bedeck / Bedazzle does the same and also hits problematic lands. Nameless Inversion is probably the worst of the three, but it can be grabbed by creature tutors, so there's that.

Unwilling Recruit and Might Makes Right might not be efficient, but they will be funny.

Goatnap . That is all.

triproberts12 on Double Damage, Double Strike

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.

Hello! Have you seen/heard of Varchild's War-Riders ? Goes well with this type of deck, even without Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor (which you have!).

Love the build man.

Still on of my favorite decks on Tappedout, I wish these alters worked more with the Red Link Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor they printed. Keep this thing flowing!

I think I would recommend more mana rocks, swapping them for Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Varchild's War-Riders and maybe Seal of Cleansing . I love the two Varchild cards, but in my experience they don't usually work that well within the 99, sadly they don't usually do enough, specially if you draw the War-Riders and not Varchild. On the other hand, the Seal is a pretty good card and taking it out would be more of a meta call, but if your meta has a lot of artifact or enchantment decks is totally fine to play. Otherwise I would recommend leaving Aura of Silence and a tutor instead. Or Blind Obedience , that card's nuts!

Also some of the Tempt cycle could be pretty cool, like Tempt with Vengeance . Maybe Infernal Offering fits in this deck as well.

Finally, althoug a bit pricy the combo between Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers would be perfect for this deck.
