Fushiii - I appreciate the description as that gives me some context as to what direction the deck is heading. I also agree with you the best thing you could do would be to shave this deck down to 60 cards and add a proper sideboard rather than just kinda mashing the two together and added a couple extra lands. if you do manage to shave it down to 60 cards, this likely also means adjusting your land count depending on the average CMC of the deck so you do not just need to cut the good stuff. 25 lands is likely not enough as it currently is at 71 cards and a ~2.5 CMC but drop it down to 60 cards and a similar CMC and you could likely get away with running like 23 lands...

In terms of what I would suggest to cut from the deck to shave things down, you can go a couple ways with this...You are running Collected Company, which I do love, but at only 23 creatures and with 20 of those 23 being CMC 3 or less, your Collected Company likely often only hits a single creature I bet. Thus, you could pull the two copies you are running as they do not really mesh well or you could alter the deck to improve the efficiency of Collected Company. In For Honor and Glory!!!, this is why I am running 30 creatures all with CMC less than 4, to ensure that Collected Company hits home every time it is played. Without knowing what direction you would like the deck to go, it would be tough to make other suggestions as they may be completely irrelevant.

Personally, I do not like Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar for a knight deck as Elspeth is more for soldiers and Gideon is to underwhelming for a 4 CMC and slow. I think you could easily cut these two.

Another easy drop would be the single copy Danitha Capashen, Paragon. You are only running a single equipment and only two auras so the chances of her reducing the cost of those is unlikely so she is just a 2/2 with Lifelink and Vigilance for 3 CMC, which is easily outclassed by something like Knight of Meadowgrain in terms of efficiency.

Anyways, I love the knight tribe and it is always fun to see others take on it. Hopefully something I said was helpful in the continued evolution of this deck!

Happy Brewing!

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.
