smack80 Thank you!
First off, you're absolutely right about The Circle of Loyalty . I keep trying to convince myself that it is worth having in there. So that's one cut to fit in something you're suggesting.
As for getting Haakon into the yard, between the discard support, self mill, and Buried Alive and Entomb , I rarely have trouble getting him there. However, I didn't know Call the Bloodline existed, and will definitely find one to put in here. So there's my swap - Call in, Circle out.
As for the rest of your suggestions, the biggest problem is figuring out what to cut. There's definitely some lackluster Knights on the list, but they all share one important quality: low CMC. My biggest problem is mana curve. If I don't get a good mix from the beginning, it turns into a midrange deck without an adequate amount of disruption. In other words, not so good. As a result, it would seem like a no-brainer to replace Embereth Shieldbreaker with Mirror Entity , for example, but that one more mana in the cost might exasperate the problem. As it already is, pretty much all of the Knights that make the deck sing are 3 CMC. I have found that I rely heavily on the little guys in the early game, and don't really want to lose them.
Likewise, I don't know how to fit the tribal spells in here. I've been trying to figure that out for a long time, and can't decide which category to choose from to make room for them. There's a pretty solid balance of:
And the little space left over after all of that is taken up by a handful of ramp, and a little bit of artifact recursion. So what do I cut?

Fighter Class is built for this deck. Actually there are tons of new Knights in Forgotten realms who will go awesome in this deck: Guardian of Faith , Forsworn Paladin , Triumphant Adventurer , Vorpal Sword etc.
Haakon is best used with the 2 tribal removal, as said above. Crib Swap and nameless inversion. Inversion can push through more damage or kill. In my knights deck, I found that Haakon required too much discard support that wasn't great without him to really justify his inclusion. Call the Bloodline may help.
You may find that Circle of Loyalty doesn't do very much. The issue with knights is that they have two sub-themes; equipment, and go wide with tokens. But there aren't enough cards that are good enough in commander to support the go-wide theme and it is pretty weak. That's why I don't like anthems that aren't also creatures in Knights. The problem with the equipment theme is all the good equipment costs like $50 apiece.
Mirror Entity is one of the best knights around. You don't need that many dudes to crush a player.

Maybe spice it up then. Here are some of my combo lines:
Mirror Entity + Ashnod's Altar lets you cycle again through your deck similar to stalactite and altar combo while also producing infinite colorless mana that can be used to make all your creatures huge with entity. Also infinite Purphoros triggers.
Maskwood Nexus + any free sac outlet like Ashnod's Altar , Goblin Bombardment or Blasting Station : infinite damage with Purphoros triggers again. Also additional infinite damage on creatures with station and bombardment and infinite colorless mana with altar.
Terror of the peaks works instead of purphoros too

Hey, who's the Commander of your deck? That matters when you trying to restrict the budget.
There's four choices here Sliver Overlord , The First Sliver , Sliver Hivelord and Sliver Legion . In my opinion Overlord and First Sliver are better Commanders than Hivelord and Legion. First Silver is the least expensive price Commander option because it's been reprinted in Modern Horizons 2 meaning in the coming weeks it's going to go down in price even more. You have Hibernation Sliver and Quick Sliver which are busted with First Sliver when it's Commander.
If Overlord isn't the Commander than it's a fine cut to make due to the budget restrictions because Overlord is much less powerful when it's part of the 99 than when it's Commander. Using First Silver as Commander and cutting Overlord opens up a lot more budget for the rest of the deck such as adding Syphon Sliver to abuse Hibernation. Hivelord and Legion are good with First Sliver as Commander because with cascade you can get a lot of Slivers on the battlefield which both these help with attacking Slivers. If Sliver win condition combos are something you want to assemble then Overlord is the better Commander.
In the editor in the section where you can add cards to the decklist find the Sliver who's the Commander and type CMDR after it's text.
The First Sliver *CMDR*
Some budget Slivers upgrades to consider:
- Manaweft Sliver : another Gemhide.
- Amoeboid Changeling : if playing Overlord as Commander.
- Necrotic Sliver
- Pulmonic Sliver : Slivers that die go to the top of your library to then be cast with cascade.
- Crypt Sliver
- Mirror Entity : combine it with Gemhide/Manawelf + Sentinel to make huge Sliver attacks.
- Winged Sliver
- Striking Sliver
After you've chosen your Commander and if interested in any of these suggestions than I offer more advice including cuts to consider and budget manabase options. Good luck with your deck.
