It might be wise to include a couple ways to discard cards if you're piloting Haakon. Call the Bloodline is a solid option, since it can score you a little extra life to undo your big guy's drawback and lets you pitch all of your creatures for another body once Haakon himself is online. Another classic tribal option is Mercenary Knight, who is big for his cost and sets Haakon up perfectly.

I'm not sure how hard you're focusing on running with Haakon, by the way, but if you're making some effort to get him going every game, I strongly recommend Nameless Inversion and Crib Swap as removal pieces. Haakon lets you play any knight from your graveyard, not just creatures, and since these two spells are both knights, he allows you to replay them from your graveyard again and again, wiping out opposing forces with ease.

Otherwise, I would recommend trying out Knight of Grace and Knight of Malice over the classic Black and White Knights. Those less colour-heavy mana costs are a godsend in a deck with mostly basic lands, and a 3/2 with First Strike for two mana can do a lot of good work against creature-based decks.

Caerwyn on Kinship Question

I have a few additions to the above response--it answered your main question, but I wanted to make sure your question of "what exactly is a creature type?" was fully explained as well.

"Creature Types" are the subtypes relevant to Creatures and Tribal Cards (ex. Elvish Promenade). The 261 (as of the time of writing) different types of creature type are defined by Rule 205.3m, which is fairly lengthy so I have covered it by the spoiler block below.

As noted in the above answer, each of these exist independently from one another, so a creature that "Creature - Elf Warrior" is both an Elf and Warrior.

However, there are a few points I think are also worth mentioning:

  1. If your Winnower Patrol gains a creature type, such as with Angelic Destiny, then it will be a Creature - Elf Warrior Angel, and any of those three creature types could implicate Kinship. Or if it loses creature types, such as with Darksteel Mutation, it will only have the relevant creature types (Insect in this example).

  2. As noted above, Tribal cards also have creature type. Winnower Patrol's kinship ability will "see" Elvish Promenade because Promenade shares the Elf creature type, even though it is not a creature.

  3. Changeling is a characteristic defining ability that means the card has all creature types. Kinship will see a card with changeling, such as Woodland Changeling or Crib Swap.

Creatures and tribals share their lists of subtypes; these subtypes are called creature types. The creature types are Advisor, Aetherborn, Ally, Angel, Antelope, Ape, Archer, Archon, Army, Artificer, Assassin, Assembly-Worker, Atog, Aurochs, Avatar, Azra, Badger, Barbarian, Bard, Basilisk, Bat, Bear, Beast, Beeble, Beholder, Berserker, Bird, Blinkmoth, Boar, Bringer, Brushwagg, Camarid, Camel, Caribou, Carrier, Cat, Centaur, Cephalid, Chimera, Citizen, Cleric, Cockatrice, Construct, Coward, Crab, Crocodile, Cyclops, Dauthi, Demigod, Demon, Deserter, Devil, Dinosaur, Djinn, Dog, Dragon, Drake, Dreadnought, Drone, Druid, Dryad, Dwarf, Efreet, Egg, Elder, Eldrazi, Elemental, Elephant, Elf, Elk, Eye, Faerie, Ferret, Fish, Flagbearer, Fox, Fractal, Frog, Fungus, Gargoyle, Germ, Giant, Gnoll, Gnome, Goat, Goblin, God, Golem, Gorgon, Graveborn, Gremlin, Griffin, Hag, Halfling, Hamster, Harpy, Hellion, Hippo, Hippogriff, Homarid, Homunculus, Horror, Horse, Human, Hydra, Hyena, Illusion, Imp, Incarnation, Inkling, Insect, Jackal, Jellyfish, Juggernaut, Kavu, Kirin, Kithkin, Knight, Kobold, Kor, Kraken, Lamia, Lammasu, Leech, Leviathan, Lhurgoyf, Licid, Lizard, Manticore, Masticore, Mercenary, Merfolk, Metathran, Minion, Minotaur, Mole, Monger, Mongoose, Monk, Monkey, Moonfolk, Mouse, Mutant, Myr, Mystic, Naga, Nautilus, Nephilim, Nightmare, Nightstalker, Ninja, Noble, Noggle, Nomad, Nymph, Octopus, Ogre, Ooze, Orb, Orc, Orgg, Otter, Ouphe, Ox, Oyster, Pangolin, Peasant, Pegasus, Pentavite, Pest, Phelddagrif, Phoenix, Phyrexian, Pilot, Pincher, Pirate, Plant, Praetor, Prism, Processor, Rabbit, Ranger, Rat, Rebel, Reflection, Rhino, Rigger, Rogue, Sable, Salamander, Samurai, Sand, Saproling, Satyr, Scarecrow, Scion, Scorpion, Scout, Sculpture, Serf, Serpent, Servo, Shade, Shaman, Shapeshifter, Shark, Sheep, Siren, Skeleton, Slith, Sliver, Slug, Snake, Soldier, Soltari, Spawn, Specter, Spellshaper, Sphinx, Spider, Spike, Spirit, Splinter, Sponge, Squid, Squirrel, Starfish, Surrakar, Survivor, Tentacle, Tetravite, Thalakos, Thopter, Thrull, Tiefling, Treefolk, Trilobite, Triskelavite, Troll, Turtle, Unicorn, Vampire, Vedalken, Viashino, Volver, Wall, Warlock, Warrior, Weird, Werewolf, Whale, Wizard, Wolf, Wolverine, Wombat, Worm, Wraith, Wurm, Yeti, Zombie, and Zubera.

griffstick on Sliver Overlord and Sliver Hive

I wanted to say no real quick I was just about to write alot saying it can grab a card that has changeling. For instance it can grab Ego Erasure, Blades of Velis Vel, Nameless Inversion, Shields of Velis Vel, Crib Swap, and Wings of Velis Vel.

GrimlockVIII on Haakon + Changeling Tribal Instant …

8 months ago

Ah, oh shoot, forgot to explain the specifics.

Basically with Haakon out, you can repeatedly spam any of the Changeling instants from your graveyard over and over again provided they don't get exiled or anything. While Nameless Inversion and Crib Swap both provide tangible utility in the form of removal, you also have stuff like Shields of Velis Vel and Blades of Velis Vel at your disposal.

While you're spamming these tribal instants from the grave, you end up triggering Edgar Markov's trigger effect from the Command Zone, creating a 1/1 vampire token every time you do it. Find a way to give yourself infinite mana and a win condition like Goblin Bombardment or Impact Tremors, and now you can use that combo as a viable means to take out your opponents.

Really nice, Orzhov Knight is lowkey one of my top favorite tribals. Good to see my boy Haakon, Stromgald Scourge getting some work. By the way, his ability allows you to play things like Crib Swap and Nameless Inversion from the graveyard.

KodenejmBerni: Graceful Reprieve is here because it can target my creatures AND my opponent's creatures, for instance if I have no Turn to Mists or Crib Swaps in hand, I still have the opportunity to leverage some life swings. Most of the time it will save my own creatures though, when I chump with them.

You do raise a good point about the 4 mana required to pull it off though. Perhaps I should take out a couple and add some actual removal. Thanks for the help!

passimo: Yes, Spell_Slam mentioned it above a while back. I'm just now getting around to scrounging some up copies and updating the deck. (I have, and continue to make, a lot of decks so I don't get around to updating as often as I'd like.) I actually just discovered Afterlife, which is pauper legal thanks to MTGO, and it actually destroys, rather than exiles, meaning better synergy with Graceful Reprieve, so I'm also considering that now, too. So thanks, lol, I already pre-approved your suggestion! And glad to hear you like the deck!
