Quote from yriel »I play Jund and Hatebears against this deck and bring graveyard when you try to grind is really good against this deck. Moreover any relic, cage or spellbomb is 1 mana,even rip is just 2 mana for shut down 7+ cards but if you play a version with no voice and only 2 witness, well ok it's not so powerful.
The shortcut on the Knight vs finks discussion is you play against more aggro decks than tron deck so i pick the finks version.
That's kind of a simplistic view. Finks is certainly better vs some aggro decks (e.g. Burn, Goblins) but Knight grinds better and will be more powerful if the game goes long, be it by smashing for 5+ damage or by tutoring up utility lands. Speaking of which, land destruction isn't only good vs Tron: it has utility in many matchups including but not limited to: Affinity, Infect, UWx control, Burn (cut them off white or green), GBx, KCI (admittedly marginal), Eldrazi, etc. That's a point in Knight's favor. The knight version also isn't as weak to graveyard hate. Sure, Knight won't get bigger than a 2/2, but it's a 2/2 that can cast crop rotation every single turn. If your opponent is wasting a card on RIP or Leyline, I'll happily take that deal.
