Hi! Since the release of History of Benalia I'd wanted to craft a good Knight deck, and you reignited my hopes! My meta has Blue Moon and Obliterator decks, so I replaced Meadowgrain with White Knight and utilized Knight of the Holy Nimbus and Mana Tithe to disrupt turns 1-3, also kicked out 3 Vaults and all tapped lands. I prefer Citadel Siege to a 4-drop lord. All said, Knights did well against many Modern strategies, even outracing burn. Keep up with the great work!

TheMadRocketeer on 3rd edition white deck?

BTW, for a thread like this one, it's cool to specify the Revised (3rd) edition printings, as follows, when referencing cards in the comments.
The designation for the Revised edition is "(3ED)".

Example - To use, replace the single square brackets, [], with double ones, [[]].
[card:White Knight (3ED)]
White Knight

The list of edition designators can be found here.

TheMadRocketeer on 3rd edition white deck?

How strict are you being on including only 3rd (Revised) edition cards? The other White Knight-like cards, Order of the White Shield, Order of Leitbur, and Silver Knight, came later than the third (Revised) edition. All are great, though.

Some more good ones:
Eye for an Eye to turn a loss into a tie or otherwise prevent a crushing blow from being one-sided
Righteousness for a fantastic combat trick - "Look. My Mesa Pegasus just ate a dragon!"
Lance as a great ability for cheap
Wrath of God to reset the battlefield
Resurrection as a perfect card to follow a board sweep
Death Ward as another - Doesn't help against Wrath, though.

Revised also has some great color-response cards, including the B, U, G, R, & W Circles of Protection and Wards, Conversion, and Karma.

I agree with everything Cereal_Killer said, just want to add that you should probably swap the four Knights of Malice with some Black Knights and/or some White Knights.

Well I think knights are good to consider... White Knight/Black Knight and that whole crowd... Maybe Smallpox/Pox for the pleague?

Neotrup on Protection from creatures and Awakening ...

No. Protection prevents 4 things:

Damage - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be damaged by creatures.
Equipping/enchanting - Not relevant with Holy Mantle, but White Knight can't be enchanted with Unholy Strength.
Blocked - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be blocked by creatures, which is to say it cannot be blocked.
Targeted - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be targeted by abilities of creatures (like Shriekmaw's ability).

As Wakening Sun's Avatar's ability doesn't target or deal damage, it's not effected by protection.

I dont think Ive ever hear the Klan refer to themselves as just White Knights.

Ive heard them as Knights of White Camelia. Ive heard of White Knights of the KKK. But not just strictly white knight, nor White Knights Unite. Context matters, if OPs name was White Knights of the KKK Unite, youd actually have an argument.

Stop stirring a pot with controversy that doesnt exist. By that logic, WOTC would change their classic White Knight creature.
