Student of Warfare Discussion

Really like the idea of Cavalier of Dawn for problematic permanents of any type! Why don't you like Student of Warfare ? i like him coz he's a 1 drop that can act as a mana sink later in the game since there is no card draw in the deck but maybe it's too slow. Nice suggestions overall, thx for your input!

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

I actually made an entire deck around this concept that works surprisingly well. Steve Argyle is a particularly great resource for this topic. In addition to Liliana of the Veil and Chosen of Markov  Flip, he's also done Deadly Allure , Guul Draz Vampire , Naya Battlemage , and Night Revelers . Other notable artists are Jason Chan ( Deathpact Angel , Fires of Undeath , Kiora, Master of the Depths , Mayael the Anima , Maul Splicer , Treasured Find ) and Volkan Baga ( Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Korozda Gorgon , Stoic Angel , Student of Warfare ). I ended up going with vampires + knights and some other cards I included are Hero of Bladehold , Knight Exemplar , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Elenda, the Dusk Rose , and possibly the most ridiculous piece of Magic art ever created: Soul Collector . Some cards that came close to making the cut are Angel of Despair , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief , Knight of Dusk , Magister of Worth , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Vampire Hexmage , and Veteran Cavalier .

Other cards that I like (sorted by type) include Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch , Lyzolda, the Blood Witch , Kemba, Kha Regent , Sunspear Shikari , Elvish Champion , Gaea's Herald , Quirion Dryad , Nimbus Naiad , Dreamborn Muse , Mistral Singer , Shipwreck Singer , Siren of the Fanged Coast , Akroma, Angel of Wrath , Archangel of Strife , Basandra, Battle Seraph , Razia, Boros Archangel , and Ire Shaman . Looking at this list now, it's clear I've spent far too much time researching this subject.

Just saying Student of Warfare starts at level 0 just like every other level up card. Still good, but not AS good. +1 great deck

Gans on Boros Knights of Rowan

Hi :) I also bought Rowan's deck and I'm currently building a Modern Boros Knights deck. Here are some suggestion based on what I've learned. I like Fervent Champion, Venerable Knight, Inspiring Veteran and Acclaimed Contender, they´re very good cards that i also run! Another 1 drop that u might like is Student of Warfare. On the other hand, i noticed that u are not running two really good cards for Knights in Modern: Knight Exemplar and History of Benalia. The first one, although quite expensive, is the best lord for knights. History of Benalia gives u board presence with Knight Tokens and then buff all of ur knights. I suggest running 4 copies of each, replacing Benalish Marshal, Bonecrusher Giant and Rimrock Knight. Some cards that u can check are Gideon, Ally of Zendikar (Knight Token generator), Path of Exile (removal), Knight of the White Orchid (mana fixing), Dauntless Bodyguard (creature protection), Sigiled Sword of Valeron and Embercleave (both good equipments, but I personally prefer Embercleave). Finally, in ur Maybeboard u have 5 copies of Basri's Solidarity, remember that u can only run a maximum of 4 copies of a card. Hope this helps u :)

Student of Warfare is a better mana sink than Truefire Paladin and you can probably cut your non History of Benalia enchantments for knight of the white orchid.

As for sideboard, I can't think of much but 2 Grafdigger's Cage would probably be good.

My main deck is Mono White Knights. Here are a few really good knights that you're missing in my opinion.

Benalish Marshal, Knight Exemplar, Mirran Crusader, Student of Warfare, Worthy Knight and Kinsbaile Cavalier. For the Knight Lords like Marshal and Exemplar, I'm make sure to run 4x of these. Additionally, I'd look into Oblivion Ring, Path to Exile for spot removal, and Wrath of God can win you games if you're able to get one or ideally two Knight Exemplar out giving all of your Knights indestructible. For fluidity sake and to really maximize this deck idea, I'd take out anything that doesn't boost your knights or isn't a knight itself.

You have a good start. Glad to see more people playing Knights, as it's my favorite tribe!
