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.

ThisIsMyAccount on Welcome to Flight Club

There are a lot of good options for the sideboard here. Because we don't talk about flight club, consider: Curse of Silence, Deafening Silence, and/or Stony Silence. The chemical burn the main character gets could be represented by Mark of Asylum maybe? haha

For the maindeck, I think Paladin Class is probably better than Authority of the Consuls for what you're trying to do but I can't say for sure if it fits your theme. A card I think does fit the theme is Spirit Bonds but I am not sure there is any room it.

Finally, if you think Magus of the Moat has a place as an honorary chapter member of flight club, it would be a very good card. Then, if you think Robert Paulson met a Baffling End, then that card could go in, too because the token can't attack through Magus of the Moat. Rest in Peace Robert Paulson...

Speaking of removal, though, it might be something to consider at least having some of in the sideboard. The only on theme cards I can think of off the top of my head are Angel of Sanctions and Journey to Nowhere but if you want removal you know where to look im sure.

Ok so something I completely overlooked is that Bloodtithe Harvester is like... REALLY good. Space is tight, otherwise he'd probably be my other 4-of 2-drop. He also synergizes very, very nicely with Olivia, Crimson Bride, who is actually kinda nuts with a discard outlet like blood tokens and Sorin, especially if you're running Champion of Dusk.

I've been considering a minor white splash for a 1-of Edgar, Charmed Groom  Flip just because he's hard to kill for non-white matchups. The other half of my reasoning being white has access to some seriously fantastic sideboard options such as but not limited to Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Stony Silence and Rest in Peace.

golgarigirl on Are Treasure Tokens Now too …

1 month ago

I liked that treasure was a great way to shore up weaknesses and grant additional clever synergies to colors that could really use it. My problem is that treasure seems like an incidental boon now. New set needs a loot effect? Slap some treasure generation on it. Want to make this counterspell feel different? Slap some treasure on it. And that means the ways to deal with it should also be more incidental than they are, especially since the treasure effectively 'refunds' any increase in mana cost a spell may have.

My biggest issue with treasure nowadays is that there are few good ways to deal with it. Most of the effects that hamper treasure are one-of effects that yes, may attempt to destroy it (most of the time, people sac in response...so now they just use the mana to cast an instant instead of doing something next turn) and then they just generate another pile of it next turn.

The hate effects need to be as cheap and incidental as the token generation. I would love to see a cross between a Bojuka Bog and a Blast Zone for treasure tokens. Something with little opportunity cost to put in a deck. Currently, depending on the color, I may have to dedicate 5 mana at sorcery speed to set my opponent back one turn of token generation with an effect like Vandalblast (which is a fine answer to artifacts in general, but a terrible answer for treasures). I might as well just let them Time Walk me. Heck, I'll settle for a Stony Silence with Cycling so it's not stuck doing nothing in the 66% of games treasure doesn't get out of hand.

Yeah, that is an unfortunate downside of mono-colorless. Collector Ouphe, Null Rod, and Stony Silence are really bad cards for this deck to see. I always try to tutor or mulligan for an Inspiring Statuary when I expect to see those cards as it allows me to still use my artifacts to cast stuff like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Karn Liberated, All Is Dust, Emrakul, the Promised End, etc. Typically I try to outspeed the artifact hate but as that is not always an option, Inspiring Statuary or politics tends to be the best option. It also helps that other decks tend to get hurt by such artifact hate so I am not always the one that has to deal with it.

As for the power level, I tried to make it as powerful as possible for the sake of having a decent chance at a cEDH power level table. A max power level Kozilek is typically around the power level of a budget cEDH deck so it tends to play well at that kind of table. Given the ridiculous speed of the deck though, I have had good matchups against full pods of max power cEDH decks. Very few decks can shrug off Annihilator 4 on turn 3. Also, Mindslaver effects are hilariously good against cEDH decks. Especially with how many Necropotence, Ad Nauseam, Tainted Pact, Demonic Consultation, etc. effects are common in cEDH. Even outside of that, just using their own removal spells on their stuff or exiling their commander if it is a deck that relies on it to win (and choosing to put it into exile of course) can completely kill off opposing players on the spot. Emrakul, the Promised End is my go to answer for cEDH decks as the cast trigger almost always just kills an opponent on cast, even if she gets countered.

As for additional stax, I already run Torpor Orb and I quite like it. Cursed Totem is interesting (and if nothing else is a good budget option). I liked Cursed Totem a lot more when Flash + Protean Hulk was a thing. Perhaps it is just my meta but I don't see too many decks that make me want a Cursed Totem effect. Winter Orb has been underperforming of late so I might trade those out and see if I like it. It cuts off my Metalworker, Palladium Myr, and Burnished Hart but I think that is acceptable given how much it can hurt some decks. Worst case scenario, I could always just treat it the same way I use something like The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale where I just mulligan or Bazaar of Baghdad it away if it is a meta that it isn't useful.

Love the deck! Toughness beatdown is one of my favourites. What are your thoughts on Wall of Omens? Also, for Stony Silence on a creature, there's Collector Ouphe.

lhetrick13 Thanks for the feedback! The deck honestly feels pretty competitive after some more testing. The problem with any Collected Company deck is you need at least 25 creatures to hit with it, and that doesn't leave much space for interaction. This deck performs really well against creature based decks as it is because my creatures are typically much bigger, so the removal is more to stave off finishers as early game creatures can almost never get through the walls.

As for the 4 copies of Assault Formation, I will usually cut 1/2 when sideboarding if I need a lot of slots but it really can be the best card in the deck in a lot of matchups, super versatile.

Biggest issue at this point is the sideboard, I've been considering Stony Silence for affinity/tron but would prefer a similar effect on a creature, but i don't know if one exists.
