I am a believer in Cavalier of Dawn if you're looking for interactions to put in the sideboard; I know it's 5cmc but sometimes a game goes long and they have a nonland permanent that NEEDS to go away like Ensnaring Bridge or Kiora Bests the Sea God , not to mention it's ability to remove the format's dominant planeswalkers. I don't like Student of Warfare and Radiant Destiny could be replaced with Sanctuary Lockdown if you got rid of the Kithkin, giving you a soft answer to Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

Hello Breakaway,

Rally the Ranks is a new 2 CMC lord effect and will benefit you more than Sanctuary Lockdown because Rally the Ranks ' reduced CMC cost will allow you to play another 2/1 creature during the turn you play it turn.

Knight of Grace is a great sideboard card; Luminarch Aspirant and Seasoned Hallowblade are 2-drops that scale well, you could even splash black for General Kudro of Drannith instead of Sanctuary Lockdown.

This would appear to be a bug. Zirda states that it can't reduce the mana in a cost to less than one mana. You still need to pay and tap two untapped creatures to activate Sanctuary Lockdown.

Hope this helps!!

This happened on MTGA. I have Zirda, the Dawnwaker and Sanctuary Lockdown plus a bunch of humans in play. I thought that with Zirda, the Dawnwaker, I have to pay 1 mana and tap 2 untapped humans to activate Sanctuary Lockdown's ability. Instead, I was not prompted to pay any mana at all, just have to tap 2 untapped humans and Sanctuary Lockdown's ability was activated.

Ha! That would actually be pretty cool though, even if you just branched out to 10 or 20. (Oh, and, Sanctuary Lockdown helps out humans. Just sayin'.)

I like it! Didn't think about adding Haktos the Unscarred, noice.

A few adjustments I believe could make the deck even better:

  • Add more 1-drops for the early aggression. Venerable Knight is a great early drop and you do have a decent amount of knights to possibly throw the counter on + Fervent Champion gets better too.

  • I tried Sanctuary Lockdown myself and found it lackluster. I'd rather play all 4x General Kudro of Drannith. Having an extra copy in hand is rarely a bad thing.

  • Outlaws' Merriment adds longevity vs. control and the like, but it's a bit slow. I think you're better off cutting it or putting it in the sideboard. That way you can also cut down a land, maybe add the 4th Dire Tactics, which is just awesome here. Maybe even try Gideon Blackblade main - he also fights control quite well.

  • Have you tried a few copies of Embercleave to top things off?
