Time to transcribe my most beloved deck: My knight deck.

The motto is: "We have everything to kill you with. Too bad our armor is too heavy to fly in."

It all started as a cheap 19 EUR duel deck (Knights vs Dragons) when I was a freshman-player. After 1 year of playing I realized the potential of a knight tribal. After a few minor updates the deck was quite non competitive. Then I got a wish come-true: I got 4x Hero of Bladehold for my birthday (thank you guys!!!!). And then everything went down-hill; for my wallet that is. Major updates with Asceticism , more Kinsbaile Cavalier s, and destroyals, and more knights.

Now it is one those decks that my friends always seem to get the reaction of "Sigh.. Not that again"-look. If everything succeeds the knights should have everything apart from flying and color protection; they should have:

  • Indestructible
  • First Strike/Double Strike
  • Vigilance
  • Trample
  • Infect
  • Reach
  • Hexproof
  • Regenerate

Now if that is not a recipe for awesomeness, I don't know what is.

Obviously I could go for an Akroma's Memorial or True Conviction as well. Perhaps in the future when I can spend some more mana.. I mean money on the deck it might happen. But it is already very effective so why bother. Those cards are also very high CMC, which I try to avoid having Asceticism as the highest at 5 CMC.

For those who want to test this deck: You MUST - and I stress the MUST - have 3 lands in your opening hand to get this to work, and preferably also a Knight of Meadowgrain . Otherwise you might get stuck; with 3 lands you can play most of the cards creating a buffer to get the win-conditions.

Feel free to comment and give feedback. But don't expect any sudden changes; this deck already cost me way too much.

Highest on my wishlist for this deck is to get my hands on the incredible Fiendslayer Paladin . Then this will be "complete" in my eyes.

UPDATE: As of 11 May 2021, my beloved knight deck will get dismantled. It contains way too many great cards for commander in a deck that is neither modern legal nor legacy efficient. Thanks and goodbye!
