Valiant Knight Discussion
6 days ago
Hey man! I got a few suggestions. Feel free to ignore any/all of them:
I kinda agree with PhaylogenX: Valiant Knight seems pretty good here (I see you've included it). Another pair of cards to consider for this type of role are Knight Exemplar and Kinsbaile Cavalier . They're like... good.
I think Wear / Tear is likely better than your Crush Contraband . It costs less to cast if you're only targeting one or the other, and it still costs less than Crush Contraband if you're using both halves. However, it IS destroy rather than exile; this is frequently not an issue, but if it is a meta call please do ignore me.
Since you're in black, you have access to the best tutors. Unfortunately, many of them are expensive: Things like Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor and Imperial Seal are gonna set you back a lot. Consider running things like Dark Petition , Diabolic Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition are all good cards.
Your rocks could use some work. I like the signets, but I like the talismans more. Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Conviction and Talisman of Indulgence are all better than their respective signets.
You may want to consider some of the death and taxes staples. Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes are good ways to protect 'ya bois. Rest in Peace can hose a lot of decks, especially the ones I play. More generally, Stax and Hatebears can blow chunks on OPs. Winter Orb can slow down opponents from responding to your on-board pressure; Trinisphere is similar but expensive. Price of Glory can disincentivize counter-magic; Aura of Silence taxes one-sidedly in your favor.
Right. That's all I got. Good luck!

I feel like Valiant Knight should be an auto-include here.

A few cards to consider adding:
Adriana, Captain of the Guard : She’s a knight who adds value in a multiplayer game.
Knights of the Black Rose : These’ll produce some card advantage.
Wear / Tear is a pretty good two-for-one in Boros.

What could be an interesting pairing and foil would be a Knight Tribal deck.
Knight Exemplar and Valiant Knight make for really powerful synergy. Mono-white Knights is a deck I use to run that was extremely difficult to stop. I would have to dig through the deck boxes to find it again, but it also used Exalted and Kinsbaile Cavalier .
I went mono-white, but you may want to go Selesnya to add ramp. Or perhaps Azorius for counterspells.
You could actually go Selesnya main board with blue-mana producing lands and counterspells sideboard. This way you can go full Bant if you need, based upon the current meta of the game.

First of all you can hide old comments by using the last part of the deck editor (having your last comment be back in november can be distracting for new comments).
Now for this deck hitting any swamps early on really hurts Knight of the White Orchid , cutting the swamps down to 1 can really help and run Concealed Courtyard (non budget, Marsh Flats or any fetch land that can grab a plains or swamp can get your Godless Shrine s).
In modern white and black has extremely powerful removal in Path to Exile (which just got a reprint in every gideon spellbook, it also will give you a Rest in Peace which many white decks are running many of in their sideboards lately) and Fatal Push (which is honestly at it's most powerful in a fetch land happy deck), 1 cmc removal vs 4 cmc is quite the difference.
Now there are many good 1 cmc knights and being able to start early is quite important for how fast the format is. Knight of the Ebon Legion can get powerful pretty fast, he even gets bigger if you take 4 dmg in a turn not just the opponent. Student of Warfare is an oldie, it also can become a sizable threat pretty quickly. Dauntless Bodyguard is also pretty decent, it not only can protect a Knight Exemplar later in the game, but it also can just be sacced to proc the stronger effect on Fatal Push or Midnight Reaper .
Having more creature buffing can also be kind of nice, Benalish Marshal and Valiant Knight can be decent at their jobs, they are at least in the majority of the deck's curve (which for modern you really want to lower it as much as you can for an aggressive deck).

Valiant Knight is in the deck mainly because there's nothing else worth using. I'm not really interested in another 4-drop and intend to replace Valiant Knight with a cheaper Knight when it's printed.
With 10 Lords, History of Benalia, and Gideon, traditional Anthems aren't necessary. I dislike traditional Anthems in this deck anyway, as they take opportunities away from putting bodies into play and aren't good draws if I face heavy removal and need to rebuild.

you may be better off pretending its a mono-white deck with Khorvath Brightflame at the helm. Which isnt that far off from the list -the few bulk dragons.
It may be tedious, but adding lands will help immensely, both from a "commander decks with partner have a 98 card deck" stance, but also help you tune the manabase to fit your curve and deckoverall.
budget knights like Benalish Marshal , Kabira Vindicator , Lightwielder Paladin , Riftmarked Knight , and Valiant Knight may be taking a look at, as are some less budget like Knight Exemplar or Kinsbaile Cavalier
that all being said, best of luck in completing the deck .... i may have to built a KNIGHT deck now (with a dragon commander)

Surprised to not see any
here, especially if you're having trouble with removal. I'd also consider replacing some, if not all, of your Sorins with
s. If your intention is to play this as an aggro deck (which it certainly seems to be), spending all your mana turn 4 to either deal 1 damage or cast a slightly better
is... a bad move. You should also consider 1-3 copies of
Aryel, Knight of Windgrace
. They can also fit into some of the Sorin slots, or some of the Seraph of the Scales slots. I'd cut the
Oath of Kaya
s all together - if you do decide to continue running Sorin, I don't think it's worth a 3 mana investment to maybe protect him.
So if I were you, my changes would look something like this:
OUT: 4x Seraph of the Scales, 4x Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord, 2x Oath of Kaya, 3x Adanto Vanguard, 2x Duress
IN: 4x Dauntless Bodyguard , 2x Midnight Reaper , 3x Aryel, Knight of Windgrace , 3x Valiant Knight , 3x Mortify
Those are just my thoughts, though. Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!
