Black/Red/White Knight Tribal

Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale by Lie Setiawan

In Russian fairy tales, the witch Baba Yaga sometimes refers to “My bright dawn, my red sun, my dark midnight,” and in other tales, three mysterious pairs of bodiless hands serve her. I imagine these three as knights who once served her in another life and serve her again after their deaths. This deck is inspired by (and named for) those long-forgotten warriors.

Use Aryel, Worthy Knight, Skyknight Vanguard, and The Circle of Loyalty to crank out tokens. Then equip and pump everybody up with Syr Alin, Valiant Knight, and more. Ready for your moment of glory? Sacrifice Knights’ Charge to return your fallen heroes to the battlefield, line them up with Unbreakable Formation, and sound the charge! Not enough? Cast Resurgence and do it again!
