Blue_Flame on Pauper: Orzhov Knights

I think Irregular Cohort is better than Sunspire Gatekeepers in a deck like this, as you don't need to run Orzhov Guildgate any more to produce the 2/2 it creates. You could probably just run a mix of Scoured Barrens and Orzhov Basilica to replace them.

Also, you kind of need a sideboard, so I'll provide some suggestions for that:

Castigate and Duress : useful for Tron, combo decks, any deck in which you need to tear a card out of your opponent's hand

Crypt Incursion / Relic of Progenitus : Graveyard hate.

Disenchant / Fragmentize : Artifacts. Enchantments.

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon.

My suggestions can help to improve the manabase with some budget lands:

Many of the lands suggested prices of them are not being displayed properly for TCGPlayer. They're in fact $1 or less each. These lands in combination with basic lands can help game play giving you more lands that can ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped letting you consistently play spells faster.


Lands to consider cutting:

I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

I suggest playing Mortify as good removal. Also, you should probably play some number of Orzhov Guildgate , Azorius Guildgate , and Dimir Guildgate for fixing. A good planeswalker that I think you should be playing is Ugin, the Ineffable .

also need to pull the Orzhov Guildgate and run at least 2 Godless Shrine but as you know my luck is really bad lol haven't pulled one yet! Might just have to pony up and collect cans to turn in to buy a few!

I built a very similar deck on MTGO, and it's been playing great. However, mine is far more aggro with a focus around Ruin Raider , doing it's best Dark Confidant impression.

Midnight Reaper is cool and has the knight synergy, but honestly he doesn't provide enough card advantage. And, with more card advantage, I think you can get away with 22 lands. So, I'd move both the Midnight Reaper to the sideboard and drop the Orzhov Guildgate all together in exchange for 3 Ruin Raider

As for dealing with big creatures. The Eldest Reborn is just flat out too expensive, and Oath of Kaya doesn't kill big blockers. I'd drop them altogether. Then, I'd move your Mortify and Moment of Craving into the main, and put 4 Vraska's Contempt or other unconditional removal in the sideboard. But, ultimately there is going to come a time in an aggro deck like this where you have to attack into a bigger blocker to get 2 or 3 other creatures in for damage. As long as you can put more creatures into play than you're losing, and make them leave a blocker(s) up every turn, than you're winning the race. I'd probably be playing both Ruin Raider and Midnight Reaper against a deck like that.

Also, four copies of either Seraph of the Scales or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord seems like too many, and Duress seems like an inefficient way snipe board wipes... I'd drop Duress and replace them with Unbreakable Formation to either board wipe protect or give you a late game push across the line... Then I'd take out 2 copies of both Seraph of the Scales and Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord and put in 4 copies of Dauntless Bodyguard in their place... Being able to drop 2 power on turn one is where you want to be, and the late game ability to protect a bigger threat against removal or a wipe can't be undervalued either.

All in all: lower your curve, get more card advantage, use more efficient spells, and focus on pushing damage through in a way that will win the race even if you lose some creatures in the process.

Your deck needs more dual lands like Orzhov Guildgate , Forsaken Sanctuary , and Evolving Wilds . The deck lacks consistency. you could add a 1 drop in Encampment Keeper .

Hey SSK, nice to hear from you again, glad you're back :)

This is a big change from Dragons. Recently I've been playing Teysa in Commander, she's great fun. Have you ventured into Commander yet? I highly recommend it.

Your new deck looks good, but consider increasing the token strategy? Consider including some cards that give you more value from sacing creatures? Currently when you sac a creature or a creature dies you only get the Spirit token value. Consider Priest of the Forgotten Gods , Midnight Reaper and Mentor of the Meek ?

These cards give you draw value when creatures die or when ETB even tokens. Reaper is just a good card when you want your creatures to be dying. If price is a concern I can understand why you can't include him, but the draw is very much wanted; can get 4x Reaper for $20. Priest gives you more value then Pontiff when you sac creatures, but she does require to tap her and you have to sac two creatures, she's also more expensive price.

Tithe Taker is an upgrade of Oligarch, but the price might be an issue; can get 4x Taker for $8. With tokens you need ways to win a game consider Unbreakable Formation ? Casting this on your main phase can be game winning or you can hold it and cast it at instant speed to save tokens from a nonSettle board wipe or other removal. Seraph is by far the best afterlife creature, she's slowly increasing in price which sucks, but if you can get 2x more of her than it will help your deck.


Here's an example to consider:

Consecrate / Consume , Revival / Revenge and Kaya, Orzhov Usurper are fine sideboard cards, but I don't think you need them main deck.

Good luck with your deck.
