Creature — Human Knight

First strike

When Knight of the White Orchid enters the battlefield, if an opponent controls more lands than you, you may search your library for a Plains card, put it into play, then shuffle your library.

In standard you guys can always use Smothering Tithe for ramp and Dawn of Hope or Mentor of the Meek plus the gain life draw cards sorceries. Not the best I know but its out there.

For commander you can always use Land Tax , Tithe , Weathered Wayfarer , Knight of the White Orchid

I get what you guys are saying but she still is a great card. And white sucks at draw card. You guys are correct on that one as well. Much better in the 99 with a splash color like green.

They can work in conjunction, since the land effect of Knight of the White Orchid dumps to the battlefield and doesn't count as your land played that turn, whereas Land Tax basically ensures that you'll have land cards in-hand to play out even if you end up playing out a Knight.

I also suggested him since you mentioned in your description there that you wanted to utilize Devotion as well, and he contributes nicely to that.

Otherwise, yeah, with the high mana cost of Angels on average, anything you can do to dump land out or ensure that you're laying out at least 1 per turn is advisable.

Knight of the White Orchid is particularly useful, as there isn't much in the way of mana ramp for White.

Knight of the White Orchid is a must-have in almost any white deck I make, (though I don't play much Commander format) especially multicolor decks since you can use it to fish out dual lands such as Godless Shrine (which I see you already have) as well as Scrubland (Well outside your desired price range I'm aware). Black/White is admittedly not the strongest dual-land combo to use him in, as there are more dual-color options if one can include things like dual-color Battle Land from Zendicar or dual-color Cycling Land from Amonkhet (for which there are no "Plains-Swamp" options), but I just ran a test game with a B/W deck and given the limited number of mana-ramp options for white, I think it fared decently since his utility extends beyond just fishing for dual land. Either way nice deck, I used Ayli as my first Commander as well.

I would take out Abbot of Keral Keep for Akroan Conscriptor . Also instead of Knight of the White Orchid I would put Weathered Wayfarer . Check out my list.

you do have some of them I see, I actually didn't check your creature list before commenting, but yeah, Knight of the White Orchid is also good with the other. Boreas Charger needs to die to grant you the land, but it is good too. I might add that one to my deck actually.

creatures that drop lands on ETB are good too, Knight of the White Orchid is staple creature in white decks I would say.
