Knight of Meadowgrain

Creature — Kithkin Knight

First strike

Lifelink (Whenever this creature deals damage, you gain that much life.)

wallisface - You have a point about Silverblade Paladin. He replaced Kinsbaile Cavalier based on your suggestion that Kinsbaile Cavalier was lackluster for a 4 CMC. I will play with taking him out and replacing him and although I do like Mirran Crusader for his excellent states and double protection, I have lost most all my ability to gain life with this deck so was thinking maybe swapping Silverblade Paladin for Fiendslayer Paladin to get some lifelink back into the deck. Taking out Knights' Charge, Smitten Swordmaster, and Knight of Meadowgrain make every life point count!

Good point about the lands. I updated them with a recent change when I added back in the Wilt-Leaf elves and Knight of the Reliquary but did not look at them again after their removal. I will take a look at the lands again based on your suggestions and see if I can get something to better suit my current needs.

Thanks again!

Rally the Ranks can act as a 5th+ Honor of the Pure if that seems necessary, but otherwise I'd agree with above--getting to 4 Cenn's Heir, Ballyrush Banneret, and Wizened Cenn is very important.

Kithkin Zealot might be nice SB tech for Jund, and Augury Adept seems like a great card advantage engine. Knight of Meadowgrain is excellent with pump effects, so depending on how many you have in your updated version I'd consider it.

Your understanding is correct, Nirkana Assassin deals damage at the same time as the lifelink creature, so it won't have deathtouch at that point. If the lifelink creature also has first strike, like Knight of Meadowgrain , you'll gain the life during the first strike damage step, giving Nirkana Assassin deathtouch before it deals it's combat damage.

4 Thalia's Lancers just to find 1 Odric, Master Tactician feels excessive. Maybe adding some other legendary targets could make Lancers a more versatile tutor. The Circle of Loyalty immediately comes to mind, but I could see Kwende, Pride of Femeref or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar working too. I'd also want at least 1 knight to play on turn 2. That would let you curve into Knight Exemplar or Silverblade Paladin better. Knight of the White Orchid and Knight of Meadowgrain would be more classic suggestions, and Worthy Knight is a newer option great for going wide with anthems. A final card I'd name would be History of Benalia as a haymaker that's particularly good in aggressive 1v1 scenarios.

Does Amrou Kithkin get in unblocked enough to be worth more than say a Knight of Meadowgrain or Cenn's Heir ? Also, how have you found Skyclave Apparition ? I've been thinking of swapping it in for Oblivion Ring / Banishing Light in several decks, but since I often run those as budget alternatives to Path to Exile or Swords anyway, the $9 price tag on the spirit seems a tad steep right now.

This deck isn't designed to combat any specific meta. It's a Pet Deck for fun. I do put in the effort to make it the best it can be, but I don't consider it suitable for high level play.

2cmc Knights in general are exceedingly lackluster. I've spent some time considering every option available, and the two I'm using I feel are the best of what little there is.

I don't believe Knight of the Holy Nimbus is any good. It doesn't have any synergy or other utility. Being annoying isn't enough.

New Benalia and Shefet Dunes give this deck additional value instead of wasting slots on Basics.

  • New Benalia provides card selection, and there are opportunities to play it without significant tempo loss.
  • Shefet Dunes is late-game reach.

Deckthinning is statistically negligible. The benefits from it won't manifest within the length of an average game. And this is an aggro deck, so I don't want games lasting long to begin with. Fetchlands won't be a part of this deck unless there are lands worth fetching.


Aether Vial doesn't function properly in this deck:

  • My creature count is far too low. Look at any 5c Humans or Bant Spirits deck list and you'll see them running 30+ creatures.
  • All of my Knights are vanilla attackers. Decks like 5c Humans and Bant Spirits have a collection of ETB triggers and other disruptive effects they can abuse with Aether Vial at instant-speed.
  • Aether Vial does nothing for the noncreature haymakers this deck benefits from.

Aether Vial doesn't instantly make your deck better. Your deck has to work around using Aether Vial. Otherwise, you have a clunky artifact not doing anything.

Since most of your creatures are human Angelic Overseer and Thalia's Lieutenant can pretty good finishers here. Cavalry Pegasus is probably a better option than Garrison Griffin here since it comes out sooner and gives most of creatures (humans) flying when it attacks with them. Honor of the Pure / Always Watching is pretty cheap and looks like it would be a nice fit for this deck. Also Knight of Meadowgrain is also really good in the early game. Hope this helps.

multimedia on Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale

Hey, nice budget version of Syr Gwyn. You have good card sense. Choosing the better high CMC cards, the better equipment, the better lands with the budget you're working with and leaving subpar cards out :)

Cards to consider upgrading:

  • Syr Konrad, the Grim
  • Cabal Paladin
  • Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor
  • Josu Vess, Lich Knight
  • Corpse Knight
  • Smitten Swordmaster
  • Valiant Knight
  • Spidersilk Net
  • Bladed Pinions
  • Mortify
  • Inspiring Vantage
  • Concealed Courtyard
  • Tainted Field
  • Orzhov Basilica

Cards to consider adding:

Sunforger is a very good equipment when you don't have to pay it's equip cost; repeatable tutoring for an instant and casting it. Mistveil combos with Sunforger to put the instant you cast back into your library to then cast it again. This is a powerful interaction with Boros equipment strategies. You could expand a lot with a "Sunforger package of instants" especially because playing black, but even just having a few powerful instants is enough.

Good luck with your deck.
