White Knight, Silver Knight, Knight of Meadowgrain, Knight of the White Orchid, Leonin Skyhunter, Knight of the Holy Nimbus, Sigiled Paladin...
All of the above curves nicely into a 3rd turn Knight Exemplar... which again curves nicely into a 4th turn Kinsbaile Cavalier (anyone?). I can see Knights being a pretty good deck, at least in the casual environment - at least considering that Wrath/Day of Judgement becomes a one-sided effect :D

Some other relevant Knights could be Student of Warfare, Moorish Cavalry, Cloud Crusader/Skyhunter Patrol, Kabira Vindicator, Chieftan en-Dal and Knight of Cliffhaven.

For a mono white EDH deck, Tivadar of Thorn could be a nice general... (see all)

@IshubarashI: It's not even the first Knight lord. While Kinsbaile Cavalier might not be exactly your standard 3mana "tribe X gets +1/+1" it is undeniably a lord.

Knights definitely need more love as a tribe, now if only they'd print cards that made Knight tokens other than Waylay and Riftmarked Knight.

I drafted her, White Knight, and Black Knight at the pre-release. It was admittedly way cool.

I'm glad for this card. Personally I like to stay away from some of the more common deck archetypes, so I'd prefer to build a Knight tribal deck over a Soldier one any day. I doubt we will see Knights in Scars of Mirrodin though; more than likely this was created for casual and extended play. Once Shards rotates out, and especially once Zendikar rotates out, I don't see this thing being as powerful in standard, but wait a year and see if I'm proven wrong. As a casual player I can attest that this card is worth the slot in the core set, though. I for one am very glad Wizards made this one!

Awsome card for a knight fan like myself. I say it makes perfect sense. What other keyword would you give knights? First strike? Most of em have it already. Indestructable is a great fit. What was the biggest advantage knights had in battle other than being mounted? Strong, expensive armor. It was tough to kill one. Reminds me of the 4th crusade in...1204 was it?

The first man over the wall of Constantinople was a Venetian marine who got hacked the pieces by the axe wielding defenders. The second man onto the wall was a Frankish Knight. Again, the defenders fell upon this man with their 2 handed axes but the Knight was better armored and stood up and drew his sword. The defenders were so intimidated by this that they ran and this one knight captured a section of the wall singlehandedly.

So yeah, thats how I see it. Indestructable = Good armor = Knights. perfect flavor.

It's not that powerfull either. -1/-1 counters are all over the place and it only takes 3 to kill an i... (see all)

Come now, this is no more powerful than the green or red lords.

Elvish Archdruid: I'm going to go ahead and hardcast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn on turn 4, kthx.
Goblin Chieftain: Who cares if I'm not indestructible? Does that really matter when you're smashing face with efficient goblins at haste-speed?

Granted that the blue and black ones suck, but this is just the incarnations of White's philosophy in lord form: Protect your dudes. Just like the Archdruid and Chieftain are the incarnations of their colors. And it doesn't protect itself AT ALL, so it's still going to die to everything from Lightning Bolt to Doom Blade to Oust. On par or worse than Dauntless Escort, really.

Once you get two out, very little will touch you. Except for stuff like Cruel Edict and... Infect. *glare*

Have seen many of my opponents' faces frown when they saw 2 of this on the battlefield. One of the best -if not the best- knight card ever.

Hero of Bladehold and Hero of Oxid Ridge make me believe in Boros Knight Tribal.
