I have not played pioneer in a while either, so take what I say with a grain of salt I suppose... There will be a TLDR.

Generally speaking, Weenie Hut can use some of the better token producers and can run with that idea pretty strongly. I'd suggest running 3 or 4 of History of Benalia , 3 of Legion's Landing  Flip, and then you can cut down to 1 of Castle Ardenvale if that helps you mana at all! Curious Obsession is fantastic in these types of decks, and so is Adanto Vanguard , so running 4 of both is your best bet as well. Skymarcher Aspirant is also another 4-of lock in my eyes. Spectral Sailor and Siren Stormtamer are early fliers with upside.

Another option is the run some planeswalker aggression through Gideon(s). Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is probably your best bet, however, my personal favorite version of him is Gideon Blackblade . The passive ability 4/4 indestructible that also gives vigilance, indestructible or lifelink can be very helpful!

If you utilize this type strategy, it does make cutting some creatures and cards overall pretty simple. Luminous Broodmoth just won't work with tokens, so that is probably an easy cut. Search for Azcanta  Flip is too slow, so I think that comes out. I think that Ephara comes out as well since the plan might change to flurry of little creatures between turns 1-2-3, the goal is to be empty handed and threatening to kill by turn 4 or 5. That also means Dream Trawler should go, but I'd understand wanting to keep a late game insurance policy.

TLDR-- Knights/White Weenie with a splash

History of Benalia , Dauntless Bodyguard , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Benalish Marshal

Tempo/ Weenie

Spectral Sailor , Siren Stormtamer , Brazen Borrower , Curious Obsession , History of Benalia , Legion's Landing  Flip

I love God-Eternal Oketra . I have a life gain oriented deck that is one of my favorites.

This is an interesting take on Oketra, i like the equipment theme since she gets so big with double strike.

Have you thought of using more 1 cmc protection creatures? Dauntless Bodyguard , Alseid of Life's Bounty , Kami of False Hope are awesome. Mardu Woe-Reaper is graveyard hate, and triggers from oketra’s zombies as well.

Check out my deck Bounce and Ye Shall Be Healed for more ideas if you’d like.

So, take into account what kind of deck you want to play. Aggro? Cut the board wipes. Control? Add more removal, take most of your creatures out. I'm going to work ona n aggro gameplan since that looks like whre your deck is leaning towards.

Cut: Tragic Poet

Prowling Felidar

Lagonna-Band Trailblazer

Knight of New Benalia

Dwarven Priest

Archon of Emeria (You are an aggro deck and want to be able to cast more than one creature in the same turn)

Rustwing Falcon

Djeru, With Eyes Open (you run no planeswalkers, also a bad card)

Adamant Will

Aegis of the Heavens

Blessed Light

Divine Verdict

Squire's Devotion

Slash of Talons

Smite the Monstrous All your sorcerys

Lithoform Engine

Hieromancer's Cage

Karma

On Serra's Wings

Novice Knight you run no equipment

4 plains

Now this might seem like a lot, but I will give you some suggestions for cards that will help further your gameplan

Creatures: currently you are running some really good cards as one ofs and bad cards with more copies, such as; Dauntless Bodyguard , Leonin Vanguard , Hunted Witness , Luminarch Aspirant Venerated Loxodon which is a great finisher, and Speaker of the Heavens .

You could run 1 more Ajani's Pridemate and 4x Soul Warden

Legion's Landing  Flip is a very good card, so I would keep it.

Removal: If you want to go with some of the best white removal ever printed that is modern legal, but a little expensive, go with Path to Exile . If not Path to Exile would be much better than Hieromancer's Cage , Conclave Tribunal is pretty good, but I wouldn't run more than 5 removal spells since you want to be going wide with your creatures and a hand ful of removal will just stall the game and you will lose in the end. You want to end the game fast while maintaining a high life score.

Hello Nucli3rpenguin,

If you swap the marshals for 2 Luminarch Aspirant s, you can add Lurrus of the Dream-Den as your companion and Lurrus combos with your Dauntless Bodyguard to power up your Thalia's Lieutenant and trigger woe-reaper's ability.

Thanks,

Gans on Boros Knights of Rowan

Hi :) I also bought Rowan's deck and I'm currently building a Modern Boros Knights deck. Here are some suggestion based on what I've learned. I like Fervent Champion, Venerable Knight, Inspiring Veteran and Acclaimed Contender, they´re very good cards that i also run! Another 1 drop that u might like is Student of Warfare. On the other hand, i noticed that u are not running two really good cards for Knights in Modern: Knight Exemplar and History of Benalia. The first one, although quite expensive, is the best lord for knights. History of Benalia gives u board presence with Knight Tokens and then buff all of ur knights. I suggest running 4 copies of each, replacing Benalish Marshal, Bonecrusher Giant and Rimrock Knight. Some cards that u can check are Gideon, Ally of Zendikar (Knight Token generator), Path of Exile (removal), Knight of the White Orchid (mana fixing), Dauntless Bodyguard (creature protection), Sigiled Sword of Valeron and Embercleave (both good equipments, but I personally prefer Embercleave). Finally, in ur Maybeboard u have 5 copies of Basri's Solidarity, remember that u can only run a maximum of 4 copies of a card. Hope this helps u :)

I think this has great potential. You seem to lack protection from other people's answers. You need creatures to block and protect your commander as he ramps up, as well as creatures that buff your commander. Dauntless Bodyguard can be one simple option to give your commander the ability to stay alive and keep all his/her enchantments. Also be careful of your Lightning Greaves. They will give you shroud to your commander, but then you can't equip anything to him/her due to shroud not letting you be targeted by anyone's spells or abilities that "target". Equipment will equip to a "target" creature.

Hey Saccox! Changeling Outcast looks good, a one drop is always good. Would you like to explain what synergy you have in mind between Changeling Outcast + Sigiled Sword of Valeron ? I like Etchings of the Chosen, seems like it would be good in pretty much any black and white tribal deck. It could possibly be swapped for Dauntless Bodyguard or maybe Brave the Sands. Lastly, I love Return from Extinction, to me, it feels like a direct upgrade from Unearth and it would also be great in a zombie deck that I'm building.
