Sigiled Sword of Valeron

Artifact — Equipment

Equipped creature gets +2/+0, has vigilance, and is a Knight in addition to its other types.

Whenever equipped creature attacks, create a 2/2 white Knight creature token with vigilance that's attacking.

Equip (: Attach this to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery. This enters the battlefield unattached and stays on the battlefield if the creature this card is attached to leaves the battlefield.)

Michigone, I just caught a misconception you might have between Myrel, Shield of Argive and Sigiled Sword of Valeron. Yes, Sigiled Sword makes the equipped creature a Knight and makes Knight tokens, but Myrel's token creation ability checks for the number of Soldier creatures you control.

I will say though that Myrel can balloon in token production if she sticks around long enough. Let's say with Isshin out and she swings for the first time as the only Soldier on board:

  • Trigger 1 - Myrel is only soldier, so she makes 1 token
  • Trigger 2 - Myrel & token are on board, so she makes 2 tokens, now giving you a total of 4 Soldiers for next swing (hopefully).

Myrel doesn't need much investment in a Soldier subtheme to really balloon her production. You already have 5 Soldiers in main board, and Hero of Bladehold also makes Soldier tokens.

All that being said, Sigiled Sword can still be fun to play, as the Vigilance Knights can help dissuade crack back. Although it doesn't have the synergy you envisioned it can still have a place in deck until you decide otherwise.

Decided to make the switch off of Helm of the Host already. After Crow-Umbra's post, chatting with iceberg_slim and playtesting it out, the restrictive mana cost of Helm would warp the deck around trying to get it out. In a deck whose curve tops out at six and wants to be aggro AND is in Mardu, it's a two turn artifact, and it's a massive target. While it would be great to see it resolve, and the redundancy (making multiple Isshin's with both Delina, Wild Mage and Helm) is something that I try to build into most of my decks, it would live better in an equipment matters deck that could cheat it out or equip it for free. So with that reasoning in mind, I'm going to try out Sigiled Sword of Valeron in its stead. It gives me a small amount of vigilance, creates tokens, those tokens have vigilance, and those tokens are knights which synergize with Myrel. Crow-Umbra pointed out that it is essentially a worse Inquisitorial Rosette (1 extra mana, and no anthem for my creatures). I agree with them, but I think my playstyle leans a little more towards tokens and equipment, so we'll see how having both in my deck works.

You know Crow-Umbra, the point you make about Neyali, Suns' Vanguard is a very valid point. I feel like I rely on my spot removal significantly to clear the way or remove stax or whatever. And having it stuck in exile where I might not be able to get to it would feel bad. I was thinking of revisiting Tectonic Giant as a switch because six damage to each opponent's face is 18 damage in a 4 player pod, which is not insignificant. The other card I was thinking of is Sigiled Sword of Valeron as it provides vigilance, which the deck could always use because of the amount of attacking it does, and it makes tokens - which is what the deck is all about - which also happen to be vigilant. And those tokens are knights, which is a small sub theme in the deck (the only support being Myrel, Shield of Argive, but still).

Thoughts?

Yogei - I apologize for the short message earlier. I was at work :)

My pleasure on the feed back. If it is not to self-serving, I would love to have your thoughts on any of my three knight themed decks (For Honor and Glory!!!, Beyond the Grave (Abzan), Beyond the Grave (Mardu)). I would appreciate another knight enthusiast insights!

Sigiled Sword of Valeron is an expensive card for vigilance, especially given you are running Brave the Sands for a fraction of the cost to play/equip Sigiled Sword. Hopefully History of Benalia meets expectations. I love that card but actually just removed it in For Honor and Glory!!! for Guardian of Faith based on some input from Lankhmar. Have not done enough playtesting to comment on that yet though.

I really like the play of Knight of Malice and Knight of Grace for your deck. Provide some evasion from popular removal colors, first-strike, and they pump each other a little. Very nice! I think you would not be disappointed with running either Knight of the White Orchid or Acclaimed Contender. Orchid's ability is so good that I try to get him into anything knight related as I love that ramp. Contender is also nice as it pretty much gives you a knight card back into your hand. I have found with knights I often struggle keeping enough cards in my hand so Acclaimed Contender helps with that a bit. I also think you will like Kinsbaile Cavalier over Kwende, Pride of Femeref. Kwende swings wider as he does not discriminate by creature type but since you are running tribal knights, can not beat Kinsbaile.

I also feel you on the protection from a color. It is so satisfying when it works out but so annoying when it is useless...Makes a good sideboard option though :)

Anyways, I like the deck and appreciate the thought and effort that went into it. Happy brewing and good luck!

Thank you for the feedback lhetrick13, I always appreciate it!

My primary reason for playing Sigiled Sword of Valeron is actually its vigilance ability. But now that I think on it more, I see your point with History of Benalia. More Knight creature tokens that also have vigilance. I'll make that change to the mainboard.

I'm actually considering replacing Aryel, Knight of Windgrace with Kwende, Pride of Femeref to give double strike to Knight of Grace, Knight of Malice and anything enchanted by Hyena Umbra. But Knight of the White Orchid and Acclaimed Contender are both strong cards and valid replacements. I like Acclaimed Contender as it helps you find Knight Exemplar. Fiendslayer Paladin is a good card as well, but, I'm on the fence regarding cards with protection from colour. They're a bit too inconsistent for my taste.
