Oh (bleep) you're right! LMAO. Like I said, I've been playing since Revised and have a LOT of decks. Always had a penchant for tribal knights (even though there have been/are better tribes for sure through the years). My Modern version does, in fact, run Giver of Runes. The Kor designation doesn't allow me to Cavern of Souls her in but I do run plenty of white sources. I'm sorry bud. 100% my bad. Sorry about that. I need to NOT drink my scotch and give advice. I just get soooooo excited when I see a solid knight tribal build I lose control.
I WILL post my ACTUAL MODERN legal version in the next few days. Giver of Runes is my only non-human or non knight creature in that deck. I run everything else human and/or knight in that deck-most are both. I announce my first Cavern of Souls as "knight" which prevents counter magic on all but the Giver of Runes and Noble Hierarch. Those both being (ideally) early drops-counter magic doesn't normally come into play.
My current, most regularly played, Modern deck is not knights (although I do play it still for a change of pace once in awhile but it's not my number one deck-hence my leading you astray). My current regular MODERN deck is as follows:
Deck: Greif Blade
Main: 4 Ephemerate 1 Poet's Quill 1 Batterskull 4 Giver of Runes 1 Sword of Fire and Ice 2 Plains 3 Godless Shrine 3 Concealed Courtyard 3 Skyclave Apparition 1 Takenuma, Abandoned Mire 3 Tidehollow Sculler 2 Malakir Rebirth Flip 2 Charming Prince 1 Kaldra Compleat 1 Silent Clearing 1 Shriekmaw 4 Grief 3 Feign Death 4 Marsh Flats 1 Lion Sash 1 Flooded Strand 3 Touch the Spirit Realm 1 Swamp 1 Castle Locthwain 2 Agadeem's Awakening Flip 2 Solitude 4 Stoneforge Mystic 1 Verdant Catacombs
This is the list I run most frequently so it's the one I know best and have readily available to share. This is NOT a net-deck AFAIK. If there is an identical or similar list floating around in Cyberspace it's purely coincidental. This list was home brewed and is one of my favorites I've ever made through the years.

Bulldawg1310 Thanks for the feedback!
I was using Dauthi Voidwalker in some tests, and it's right on the edge of inclusion. I'll switch it back in and test some more.
I have to admit, I haven't tried Liliana of the Veil in this line. I'll try to make room as I solidify the decklist. And yeah, it's a pricy card, but I happen to have one on hand in another deck, and I playtest decks on one of the free online programs.

Dauthi Voidwalker can give you a LOT of advantage when played with thoughtseize. you may be running too many of the new ob. while it is a cool card i dont know if hes better than that synergy between voidwalker and thoughtseize, or even Liliana of the Veil but i understand why shes left out as expensive of a card as she is.

I don't think Mahadi, Emporium Master quite makes it. The fact that it can only trigger on your own turn makes it a bit too limited for my liking. I would probably go for Pawn of Ulamog in that slot as it both gives mana and an additional body to sacrifice for more value if you prefer. If you're looking for something in this slot and not running Pitiless Plunderer you may want to consider that.
Mari, the Killing Quill is currently still in the testing phase for me. I've only been able to get her out a couple times so far (I probably should just tutor for her in games) but she can trigger on her own as she is an assassin, and the fact that she gives herself deathtouch comes in handy as well. Additionally, the exile triggers on a creature dying for any reason, independent of having any rogues etc, which is very handy given how common graveyard decks are.
Alongside her I have Dauthi Voidwalker and Oona's Blackguard for tribally relevant cards, but I would like to get maybe one or two more playable cards in that vein to be totally happy. Among current options Zulaport Cutthroat, Ghostly Pilferer, Morbid Opportunist, Grim Hireling, Murderous Redcap, Guildpact Informant, and Glasspool Mimic Flip strike me as being possibilities, but I'm not sure where I want to go on it at the moment.
I prefer Talisman of Creativity over situational ramp cards like Mahadi since it's valuable even on an empty board. If anything I'd cut something like Mari or something that similarly creates situational value in a different area, like Thief of Sanity if I felt I'd prefer to trade card advantage for more ramp.

dfbenj Thanks for the comments!
First off, you're spot on with Dauthi Voidwalker; Reanimation is the major theme of the deck, and exiling kills that plan. There's a similar issue with Mari, though that one could be interesting. Most of the fodder for reanimation is gained through mill, so it wouldn't necessarily be counterproductive the same way that the Voidwalker is. Worth playtesting.
I definitely want to make room for Prosperous Thief, and will be looking into something to cut for that. However, Grim Hireling is really just one mana too many for me to feel comfortable about considering it to be ramp. To reference an analogy, I had a brief love affair with Smothering Tithe, because yay white ramp. But after running it in basically every deck I made with white I noticed that by the time I started to benefit from it I really didn't need the mana. So a lot of the time it was a dead draw. I could forsee the same issue with the Hireling.
As for the staples you mentioned, in this particular deck Drown in the Loch is a better card to have than Counterspell for many reasons, and while the other counters I have in here cost more they also feed the theme. If there was room for another counter, the OG would be the top choice. For that matter, if milling was a major wincon (which it is not), I would include Arcane Denial.
Finally, I abhor Cyclonic Rift. I refuse to use it, ever. If I was building cEDH, it would be an automatic include. But, then again, so would be a lot of things. Rogue tribal is not competitive enough to do stuff like that.

Really fun decklist and deck name, haha! I was curious what you've thought about these Rogue rampy cards - Grim Hireling and Prosperous Thief and Mari, the Killing Quill? I'm also generally a fan of Dauthi Voidwalker, but could see the exile causing bad synergy with reanimation
