Been playing off and on since '94

I'm an avid brewer and usually create a new deck every day. I have about 300 private decks that are under construction but am slowly working to get them all public. I believe true brewers ascertain joy from the creative process and thus focus more on exploring new interactions and builds rather than putting the bulk of effort into tweaking and perfecting a single deck.

I don't really play competitively but I watch competitions (ProTour, etc) and read articles regularly. I play FNM and GameDay and Pre-Release as well as kitchen table. I enjoy watching other people play and offering input.

I have been accused of being a "collector" more than a player, which I suppose is true in some regards. I have always loved the flavor/lore/mythos of Magic and am prone to making decks that are more theme-oriented than win-oriented. Sometimes it's fun to play a deck that fits together cohesively rather than a jumble of the best cards smashed together.

I love me some big creatures, explosive plays and maverick decks! Never once played a "Net-Deck", always have to tweak something to make it my own. I value creativity and uniqueness in deck building. I am not stingy with my +1's. I upvote effort as well as my impression of the deck's strength or originality.

I love to check out decks and offer feedback, just post a link and I'll have a look!

Solid build, +1

Paladin of Atonement is another solid Knight. If you’re definitely set on Mono-White, some curve toppers that aren’t necessarily Knights could help, things like Lyra Dawnbringer and Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants. There are a handful of Vampire Knights from the Ixalan block you could look over.

If you are open to adding another color, Black gives a ton more Knights and some solid removal. Knight of Malice is a great 2-drop, and again lots more Vampire Knights to choose from.

Nice build, +1

munky702 it’s a cool combo but the deck has to be more built around it. Only concern is that you could end up with a handful of expensive creatures and never get combo off, so in this frame it kind of just builds inevitably following the natural curve. I may reconsider it, thanks for feedback!

Nearly every viable build uses at the very least Sol Ring, but also commonly Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Thran Dynamo. Not anything wrong with that, but to some effect it almost forces them to be played to maintain parity. A Turn 1 Sol Ring especially into like a Mind Stone same turn, taxes everyone’s artifact removal from the get-go or else gets you really far ahead. Not to mention Chromatic Lantern in almost every 3+ color deck. This guy super flavorful and probably won’t live a whole turn cycle so will likely just give you a short term access to ramp.

Of course, you could also have a Mycosynth Lattice and a Zuran Orb and steal their lands to then sac...

I like the niche it fills, I think it’ll certainly mix things up and be a solid red staple in a ton of builds. Yes, it’s creation is warranted. No, I don’t think it’ll have too much of an impact. Cool card for me!
