My personal favourite is Scapeshift if you don't mind sacrificing your non-gates. And if that's the case there's also Knight of the Reliquary. Primeval Titan is a great option for higher up the curve.

Tolaria West is a neat way of getting them to your hand. Since you're in black you have access to things like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor too. And they have the bonus of being able to get something else if you really need it.

Flagstones/brought back is neat.

I feel like this could be a really powerful engine. Brought back is already very close to being a combo - getting to put Spore Frog and Eternal Witness in the sideboard and sometimes just straight up winning off that alone is nice.

Maybe look at Saffi Eriksdotter combo lists? Roiling Regrowth/Springbloom Druid as extra (bad) harrow copies? Knight of the Reliquary/Elvish Reclaimer for utility lands?

There is definitely something strong here - there are too many good cards without homes that suit this.

Never tried it out. The way I read it, there are two conditions: that the enchanted creature must attack and it must have at least three +1/+1 counters on it to activate the ability of getting two basic land cards pulled up. I do feel like it is a little slow as even under ideal situations, it will take till at least till turn three to get the lands from it and you can not use them until turn four. That is what discouraged me from running it in the first place. I am not a huge fan of Caravan Vigil's conditions as you would have to sometimes wait for that condition to occur but it is not shabby. I would never run Harrow unless I had a reason for it such as Knight of the Reliquary. Then that would be a great card!

TheReal_MtGHaystak - I forgot to say thanks for you land suggestions! Both of those are kinda interesting possibilities. I would love to get a copy or two of Boseiju, Who Endures to run just a little more potential removal but at 30 tix a pop, that is beyond my budget! Remember I said Collected Company was a investment at 5 tix! Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire has potential though...

Squirrelbacon - Ya, I reluctantly dropped Knight of the Reliquary back when I shifted things to fit in the Worthy Knight and Thalia's Lieutenant combo (which is pretty potent in a "tribal" knight deck made of almost all humans). You are not wrong that with only 2xGhost Quarters, the chances of getting it when needed will be super low without running Knight of the Reliquary but I would likely use its ability more often then spending 4 mana on Gavony Township's. I mean, playing its ability is significantly cheaper and would likely always at least annoy my opponent if nothing else right?

Oh schnikies, Knight of the Reliquary doesn't exist anymore lol. Ignore most of that last suggestion.

So I agree with the negative assessment of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar -- it's great in control and different style aggro decks but not for this list. Adding another miss to CoCo and having a slow anthem effect (albeit, a great one!) might just be too clunky here.

However, another suggestion for the deck would be to remove 1 Gavony Township and add in 1 Ghost Quarter/Field of Ruin. The main reason for you having a utility land or two in the deck is specifically to tutor it in certain scenarios with Knight of the Reliquary. Having multiple of these may hinder your mana development and result in rough top decks.

Another option for Gavony Township is to replace it with Katilda, Dawnhart Prime. I think it's worse overall, but you can hit it off of CoCo as a one-of if you desire.

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!

Squirrelbacon - I came to the conclusion that just in terms of making the deck better, adding in Thalia's Lieutenant along with Worthy Knight was better than Wilt-Leaf Liege and Knight of the Reliquary. I do like Wilt-Leaf Liege but even with only the two copies present, I pulled it once or twice with the Collected Company which was disappointing. Decided to keep all creature costs below 3 CMC based on that experience and Benalish Marshal can pump the human tokens created with Worthy Knight while Thalia's Lieutenant can pump anything on the board when it comes in play and get pumped when anything else is played with a good potential for additional +1/+1 counters due to if at least one Worthy Knight is present.

The whole point of this exercise was to be objective with the deck and see what others would do with it and why so really interesting to see where the deck started vs where it is now. Thanks again for all your thoughts and advice along the way!
