The 4x KotR are only there because I'm playing Militia Bugler and it's a 2-power creature I can grab with it. It's just the most useful 2-power creature around as it is both really large, and can act as a manadork if I need it. I'm not even taking full advantage of KotR right now with stuff like Bojuka Bog in the Sideboard. If I find Knight of Autumn can block/trade as well as KotR then I'll swap them out since KoA is more flexiable.Quote from mirrislegend »Between Torpf (with 4x KotR and 0x Tracker) and JoshhAvatar with (0x KotR and 4x Tracker) both having great success, I'm really really tempted to try the 4x KotR and 4x Tracker build.
@Torpf What about 1x Kessig Wolf-Run to make your Knights trample? Also, do you really not miss the lifegain combo?
1 Kessig would mean also playing 1 Stomping Grounds. I've done that before but I've found I don't really need it. If you have infinite mana there is 9 times out of 10 a way to win with Ballista. Without Wolf Run I can play more Field of Ruin effects which makes Tron and Control slightly better matchups.
I don't miss the infinite life combo. Pretty much all top decks have a way around it and blocking with a huge KotR or even Bugler buys just as much time as Finks would. Even Burn/super aggro is manageable with my sideboard. Only thing I really miss is Viscera Seer getting me value off of removal.
