Giver of Runes

Creature — Kor Cleric

: Another target creature you control gains protection from colourless or from the colour of your choice until end of turn.

Nice.

My one concern with Curator's Ward is that the opponent can just kill your creature in response to you casting it, the same way the would when you cast Leveller anyway.

I think some of these cards might be of more use:

  • Street Wraith provides you a zero-mana instant-speed win condition once your combo is in place, which means your opponent has almost no way to defeat you once you’re empty-decked with a wincon in play.

  • Swiftfoot Boots if you really think hexproof is worth it. Ideally you’d be in-white for Giver of Runes. Though personally i’d be more in favour of just wasting the opponents time with Counterspell and Remand

So, this is my current thinking for this list - basically moving Thalia to the sideboard, and trimming some cards i’d rather not see multiples of. Also ditching Ephemerate:

Land (23)

Creature (31)

Artifact (6)

Sideboard (15)

Might be worth considering Giver of Runes to help keep your creatures on the board?

I think the best reason for March of Otherworldly Light over Rip Apart is Hammer time decks... hitting Urza's Saga, Inkmoth Nexus, Colossus Hammer or even just somthing else to hit that stupid Giver of Runes with relative ease and at instant speed...

the main selling point for Rip Apart was supposed to be the flexibility for what targets it can hit... but ironically the sorcery speed really makes things awkward sometimes... heck even Expressive Iteration can feel awkward/risky sometimes and that card is clearly amazing.

I love angels, so you've got my vote! I am working on a mono White Angels deck right meow. I would suggest having some kind of first turn drop in there somehow. Speaker of the Heavens, Giver of Runes, Mother of Runes, or Serra Ascendant perhaps? I also would consider Giada, Font of Hope for a bit of extra ramp to help get you to the four drops and bigger a bit quicker. Check out my Angel Decks on my page if you need more Ideas? Best of luck with your Angel Tribe deck!! Cheers!

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

Sideboard: 2 Leyline of Sanctity 1 Shadowspear 2 Damn 1 Sword of Sinew and Steel 2 Damping Sphere 2 Sanctum Prelate 2 Kaya's Guile 2 Dauthi Voidwalker 1 Reduce to Memory

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.
