Here is all of them but for this idea you should go with something that spends life. Selenia, Dark Angel or Vona, Butcher of Magan are interesting options. Selenia is better for enabling combos faster and works great with the likes of Repay in Kind or Transcendence for that matter.

Arvad and Elenda, Contingent Companions

Legendary Creature - Vampire Knight

Deathtouch, lifelink

Whenever a legendary creature dies, create a 2/2 black Vampire Knight with flying and lifelink.

, Sacrifice another creature: Destroy target legendary creature.


I feel like any scenario which would have them both, they would work together, as they are both very genuine in their righteousness, moreso than most . But I mean Dominaria and Ixalan... clearly different worlds, although I'd love a Captain Sisay as a Pirate!

I'd like to see an unusual commander for its tribe, but with precedent like Grenzo, Dungeon Warden (not really goblin tribal), Vona, Butcher of Magan (More control than aggro), or Jareth, Leonine Titan (Voltron vs. tokens), or Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord (not elves and also land destruction).

borjaambroce - It is most assuredly possible! With that focus in mind, I would cut all of the aristocrats cards you're currently running that wouldn't advance your new plan!

There are also a fair number of cards in your list that I have personally tried that have under-performed.

Finally, there are a handful of cards that don't fall into either previous category that I think warrant discussion.

Murphy77 sorry for the late reply. A friend of mine asked me to try out Elenda, the Dusk Rose as well which I am still yet to do, I do find Vona, Butcher of Magan is actually not usually a dead card, for example if i'm playing against the mono red deck, I can gain so much life off of Vona easily especially If I have Valiant Knight in play too, it can make my opponent focus their burn on Vona instead of me as well.

Bladebrand I don't think i'll try to fit it into this deck as there isn't a real need to I can see it working well with the first/double strike aspect of things. But my knights can get quite strong, plus with the first/double strike they can usually take down big threats, Vona and Aryel, Knight of Windgrace already have some great removal potential as well if I really need to take something down in order to win.

I don't really want to replace Midnight Reaper some reasons being it gives you card draw when you sacrifice Dauntless Bodyguard and taking 1 damage off of that isn't really a big issue, it also is a knight itself so I can be buffed for extra damage, but feel free to swap him out for something else say Orzhov Enforcer prehaps

I haven't really considered Abnormal Endurance or Demonic Vigor at all really, I personally think that they just aren't too useful.

I like the idea of trying to include Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Bladebrand into this deck. Vona, Butcher of Magan just seems to be too expensive to cast and could end up being a dead card in your hand quite often. I would look for a cheap cmc card with deathtouch (even if it's not a knight) to replace Midnight Reaper which really only works in a deck with lots of lifegain. I really don't know where I would try to work in Bladebrand

Lord_Europa With the deck being a more focused on you can fit Benalish Marshal in quite well, you can use it in place of something else, which would be most likely instead of Aryel, Knight of Windgrace , Vona, Butcher of Magan or even Valiant Knight . Though I personally like the idea of the extra removal to help deal with certain decks, like for example a deck full of flying creatures. I'd still take Valiant over Benelish because It can give a way to dump mana or provide a lot of damage with double strike and it is just slightly harder to kill.
