The thing about Diamond Knight , colorless is not a color...

I'd cut: Tainted Field and Tainted Peak . You need way more swamps for these to not be colorless lands a lot of the time. Basilisk Collar seems pretty marginal. It's just low impact, especially without pingers. Bloodcrazed Paladin also seems pretty bad. Diamond Knight isn't really playable in monocolor, much less three color. Cabal Paladin is also bad. Prismatic Lens isn't a good 2 cmc mana rock. Add the Talismans over it. Righteous Confluence is on theme, but also just kinda terrible. 3 knights for 5 mana at sorcery seems bad, even if you're exiling an enchantment as well. Steelclaw Lance seems too low impact as well.

I'd add: Nomad Outpost . And just generally, since so many of your knights have heavy color requirements, I think you need a very good mana base. I like all of Gus's suggestions for knights to add. Sylvia Brightspear should also probably be played if you're playing her partner. She's also solid with the swords of. Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Silverblade Paladin seem better than a bunch of your other knights. Balan, Wandering Knight also seems pretty decent. It's better than Twinblade Paladin at the very least. I think you should also be running a bunch of the good non-knight equipment creatures. Sram, Senior Edificer is great card advantage as is Stonehewer Giant . Merciless Eviction is imo a must play in w/b. Likewise, I think Sunforger is a must play in W/R

Hblue Yeah I wasn't totally sure if Diamond Knight could be used for colorless.

ScionsStillLive Agreed, that's what I'll cut. I believe I could go down to 3 Wastes with little to no downside. Unfortunately, you can't name Colorless/Artifact with Diamond Knight as they're not colors, making it pretty much useless.
