Ravnica Allegiance Brews, pt. 1 – Orzhov Knights

“What?”, you might be asking right now. Obviously, right now, I don’t really know what will be good when the set comes out, but what I can do is speculate. I mean, we do know the rest of the shocks are coming up, so that’s a start. It’ll give us the crucial Godless Shrine. Actually, the shocks are going to enable a lot of decks. There are already GR-decks without Stomping Grounds.

I’m not expecting any more knights in the next set. There have been some previously, but Orzhov creatures are usually clerics and Azorius creatures are usually soldiers. Still, we have plenty to build on. Even Steel Leaf Champion is a knight. On the other hand, there are some knights in Guilds of Ravnica, which might mean that they are pushing them as a theme. There was only a handful in both of the previous blocks.

However, I’ll start with these:

Dauntless BodyguardKnight of GraceKnight of MaliceCavalry DrillmasterHistory of Benalia
Midnight ReaperValiant KnightVona, Butcher of Magan

Throw in the best removal you can find from black and you are good to go.

Benalish Marshall might be a nice addition. We could possibly play it by taking out the Dauntless Bodyguard in lieu of it and also exchange 4 Swamps for Orzhov Guildgate.
