From the grave my knights will arise. HAIL HAAKON!

Modern BGW (Abzan, Junk) Combo Jank Knights Midrange Reanimator



Welcome to my knight deck that actually placed fairly high on tappedout! Thank you to everyone who got this deck to where it is. This deck is a midrange completely based around Haakon, Stromgald Scourge to continuously recast your knight creatures, and combo with Nameless Inversion with the changeling effect.


Haakon, Stromgald Scourge - Main reason for the deck. If he is on the battlefield then I recast every knight card from my graveyard, and combo with Nameless Inversion to clear my opponents board. Somewhat hard to get out, but then again this deck is built around it.

Knight Exemplar - Arguable one of the best knight out there. With two of them on the battlefield all of my knights are indestructible making my board state better than my opponents (usually).

Knight of the Reliquary - Powerful knight that becomes bigger as the game goes on. Plus it can help me get my colors correct if I get mana/color screwed.

Silverblade Paladin - Double strike makes any of my knights twice as deadly. He can even be flashed in with Aether Vial making this effect seriously hinder my opponents or destroy a big creature that they may have.

Hero of Bladehold is here to be an overwhelming force if it lives to attack. With Knight Exemplar boosting the tokens and making them indestructible, my opponent will regret leaving this on the board.


Two Knight Exemplars on the battlefield becomes a serious problem for my opponent. Plus being a lord.

Nameless Inversion - Mentioned above, but with Haakon, Stromgald Scourge it can be cast repeatedly to clear my opponents board.


Eternal Witness is there to get back a card that maybe gets dredged that I don't want to be dredged. Many sideboard cards or Aether Vial come to mind here.

Aether Vial - It can flash in just about every knight which also helps me flood the board. Flashing in the second Knight Exemplar can be a serious hindrance to my opponent. Also flashing in Silverblade Paladin for double strike is just an amazing feeling. This also allows me play Haakon, Stromgald Scourge since he can't be cast from my hand.

Grisly Salvage and Grim Flayer are there to get some cards into the graveyard so combos can begin. Hopefully hits Haakon as fast as possible, Grim Flayer can also be part of the aggressiveness in the deck if delirium is hit which would probably happen fast and often, and Grisly Salvage is an instant.

Collected Company is there to try and delve into my library to filter for knights. Instant speed Knight Exemplar or Silverblade Paladin is just a great feeling.

Thanks for taking a look for my deck! Any and all suggestions and criticisms are welcomed!
