After Aryel, Knight of Windgrace came out, a decent knight general for commander, and I saw the new knights of Dominaria I decided I wanted to do a Knight tribal EDH. This is what I came up with. The deck doesn't have any fancy stuff going on apart from the Crib Swap + Haakon, Stromgald Scourge combo. Some of the cards in the deck like the tutors and others have the purpose of putting Haakon, Stromgald Scourge in play ASAP so that I can start the graveyard shenanigans. Other than that it's your typical tribal deck but with Knights that have protection from colors, first strike, etc...

The win-cons here are:

Maybeboard:

  • Argentum Armor would be nice for extra removal and is kind of in flavor;

  • Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is great in the deck, he gives you more knights, can become an indestructible 5/5 and give you a permanent boost to your creatures, my only concern with him is what to remove in order to include him, yes it should be a no brainer but I like all the stuff I already have on the deck;

  • History of Benalia this card has me conflicted. When you look at it you think "What a great card, it is a must have in knight decks!". Well, yes it is great but when you look closer at it, the best part which is the last ability only comes after 2 turns, that means 2 turns for 4 players which equals to 8 whole turns. In all that time someone in the table can come up with an answer to it, plenty of people play green and/or white in commander it's quite easy to remove the enchantment from the game before it becomes relevant, yes you still get 1 or 2 extra knights but there's other cards for that, some of them at instant speed. Also the pump it gives only lasts for 1 turn, so is it really worth to include the card? I'm not too sure about this one either;

  • Sorin, Solemn Visitor also looks great, the +1 is just perfect for the deck and the ulti allows you for more control over the board so this is definitly a card I am considering to include;

  • Student of Warfare is nice, the level up is cheap and the end result is great, but it is a slow card and if he comes later in the game he won't have a great impact so I don't know;

  • Kabira Vindicator same as Student of Warfare;

  • Sword of the Animist if I need ramp and/or fetch specific colors, one of the main issues I see with the deck is the fact that many creatures have 2 or 3 mana symbols of the same color;

  • Torment of Hailfire could be an extra win-con.

All help would be appreciated.
