Sanctifier en-Vec

Creature — Human Cleric

Protection from black and from red ((Remember the acronym debt.) This can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything black or red. Anything black or red attached to this immediately falls off.)

When this enters the battlefield, exile all cards that are black or red from all graveyards.

If a black or red permanent, spell, or card not on the battlefield would be put into a graveyard, exile it instead.

Knights need some love brother! LOL. I have a similar deck and spot removal and board wipes (not as common) are problematic but Mother of Runes has helped a LOT! She's less than 2 bucks and is a one drop and human-which fits. I know you're a budget builder-I am not LOL. Cavern of Souls would be a great investment, if you're willing to pony up, and will stop counter magic until they Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin it. Still, would buy you some time. Any of the pro-red knights would be good in SB for burn. Guardian of Faith will stop board wipes or even spot removal since you get to choose your targets so you don't HAVE to phase out your whole field. That card was a game changer for me and it's a knight and cheap (also less than 2 bucks). Nice shenanigans too since he has "flash". For a 3 mana 3/2 that is white and cheap, a knight, AND flashes in to prevent removal he's pretty much the MVP of my deck (between him and Exemplar). I've read through your iterations and it feels like you landed on the right mix!! Your deck is essentially the same as mine except I do run Caverns, Mother and Guardian and a few more fetches to thin the deck. Nephalia Academy is SUPER CHEAP and, while it does not take the place of Leyline of Sanctity it does deal with discard strategies and used to sit in my SB but I run a couple copies main now. I have run this deck with Aether Vial but it just gets too "muddy" on early drops and invariably almost every competitive deck runs Stony Silence in SB so that makes vials pretty useless. Auriok Champion is a great (human) SB card and so is Sanctifier en-Vec especially with dredge decks. Paladin en-Vec is another good choice and kills Rakdos strategies. A lot of people will say that Knights isn't competitive in the current modern meta but I have a pretty competitive location where they get roughly 50 participants every Friday night for FNM and my knights never go worse than 2-2. I've had a few 4-0 nights and a lot of 3-1 finishes. I don't always play knights but when I do it's competitive enough to feel good.

Also the manabase might not be able to support it (especially with Bmoon) but I noticed you have no grave hate in the board, and Sanctifier en-Vec with Pyrohemia is funny as hell

Triumph of Gerrard is not that good, I'd run more creatures instead.

Adeline, Resplendent Cathar is a very strong human, I suggest at least 2 copies.

Esper Sentinel is pretty expensive so I understand if you can't afford it, but he's a really strong 1 drop that gets stronger as it gets buffed by Aspirant or Lieutenant.

Fiend Hunter for some more removal.

If you need to cut any cards, I'd suggest cutting Ollenbock Escort first. Then probably Tithe Taker. Taker doesn't seem too good because the Afterlife ability creates a spirit, not a human, and it only taxes on your turn.

I don't know if you plan to have a sideboard, but Sanctifier en-Vec and Sanctum Prelate are strong sideboard options in mono white for humans.

Honestly most of these just depend on the deck, Steadfast Paladin is weak in constructed, though it is very good in sealed, like the pre-release tomorrow. Nadaar, Selfless Paladin is good in a dungeon deck like caseys, but outside of that i think it is kind of a wasted slot because dungeons dont get you a lot of value unless you focus spamming them. Priest of Ancient Lore is good in any deck trying to utilize blink effects because you can utilize it's enter the battlefield effect multiple times a turn, but as a one shot usage there are much better cards than a creature that replaces itself with a card and gives you one life. The most versatile cards you have in this list are Alms Collector, Sanctifier en-Vec, Weathered Runestone, Ivory Mask, Paladin Class, and Doomskar. These can fit into most decks that find themselves running white, but even then you dont want them in every white deck. Many of the other cards are incredible in certain decks and absolutely useless in others, so it just strongly depends, you know?

FisterMantastic I don't really know about Sanctifier en-Vec overall. If you told me that the problem is Kroxa or Dragon rage channeler ill say "sure, go for it". But if your GV troubles are with Jund and Living end I don't know... It will definitely help, but I don't think that would completely stop them at all.

Junds Tarmo's will still have your grave to feed from and their green stuff in theirs. Lilly makes you sacrifice things so it bypasses sanctifier's protection.

Living end plays creatures of basically any color, in fact lately I seem to find that most living end decks are mainly blue. So depending on the build that would only partially stop that also.

If you main deck a card that is only good against certain decks it should completely shut them down, not just halfway. In the other hand taking out angel creatures only waters down our main strategy, which is putting angels in play so our million triggers trigger. But at least she's a cleric, it could be worse...

If you feel like you need GY hate mainboard for sure go for it, but I don't think Sanctifier will solve your problems the way you think. Maybe as a 2x (replacing 2 youthfuls) because it helps a bit on those match ups and when the ability doesnt matter at least it has a body (and I can't recall any other GY hate card that at least gives you that when the hate is useless)but I don't think it will work as well as you are thinking, i'll probably rather put 2x Soul-Guide Lantern. But if you play it do it as a 2x at best, and I would still keep RIP as my main GV hate in the side and not another couple of those.

Haha thanks, I'll take the advice and keep trying it out. Is there a play for Sanctifier en-Vec over Youthful Valkyrie do you think given the amount of graveyard abuse I tend to be against?

A cool take on D&T with a Humans subtheme. Especially like the Ranger-Captain + Mikaeus.

Not entirely sure what Flagstones of Trokair is doing here, it is basically just a basic plains that can make Blood Moon and Drown in the Loch better against you. 18 lands with no cantrips is also pretty risky with all of your three drops, you currently only have about 70% chance of hitting three lands on your third turn, meaning you're going to be playing from behind early a lot without a turn 1 Vial. If your having flooding problems just add more Silent Clearing

I'd also add a single Giver of Runes to fetch off Ranger Captain as seems good for board stalls/control even if it isn't great with the Humans, espcailly since cards like Auriok Champion and Sanctum Prelate is game over for a lot of decks.

Might also want to look at some Sanctifier en-Vec and Drannith Magistrate for the sideboard since your going to have a pretty bad Dragon's Rage Channeler and Living End matchup otherwise
