A fellow player on Cockatrice had a deck similar to this. I saw him play the tribal theme of Flanking Knights and I knew I had to make my own version. I got his permission and I made this:

Battlemaster Himself:
Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran

Knights of the Round Table:
Benalish Cavalry
Blood Knight
Cavalry Master
Glory
Gustcloak Cavalier
Hero of Bladehold
Hero of Oxid Ridge
Homura, Human Ascendant
Kinsbaile Cavalier
Knight Exemplar
Knight of Meadowgrain
Knight of Sursi
Knight of the Holy Nimbus
Knight of the White Orchid
Mentor of the Meek
Mirran Crusader
Order of the Sacred Torch
Outrider en-Kor
Paladin en-Vec
Pentarch Paladin
Riders of Gavony
Riftmarked Knight
Sidar Jabari
Silver Knight
Silverblade Paladin
Soltari Crusader
Sun Titan
Truefire Paladin
White Knight

Forged from Honor:
Boros Signet
Chromatic Lantern
Darksteel Plate
Door of Destinies
Lightning Greaves
Loxodon Warhammer
Swiftfoot Boots
Sword of Fire and Ice
Sword of Light and Shadow
Sword of War and Peace

Unshakable Nobility (Enchantments):
Cathars' Crusade
Ghostly Prison
Glorious Anthem
Glory of Warfare
Goblin war Drums
Knighthood
Marshal's Anthem
Martial Law
Security Blockade
Shared Triumph
True Conviction

Holy Magics (Instants & Sorceries):
Day of Judgment
Guardians' Pledge
Hearth Charm
Inspired Charge
Insurrection
Rally the Forces
Rally the Peasants
Roar of the Kha
Savage Beating
Spare from Evil
To Arms!
Wrath of God

Lands (To Defend):
Arid Mesa
Battlefield Forge
Boros Garrison
Cavern of Souls
Homeward Path
9 Mountain
15 Plains
Plateau
Reliquary Tower
Rugged Prairie
Sacred Foundry
Slayers' Stronghold
Strip Mine
Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion
Wasteland



So yes, Flanking is underrated. This deck is actually pretty decent at getting a good running force going and just poking everyone for usually two at a time while you gather your big pump spells and enchantments/artifacts. Agrus is usually relevant when you cast him, and the creatures are great by themselves too.

Leave comments and suggestions below. :3

Here are some more powerful knights you may want to add:

Crusading Knight

Lightwielder Paladin, Northern Paladin and Order of the Sacred Torch if your buddies like black.

Sidar Jabari

Skyhunter Cub and Skyhunter Skirmisher get pretty good with swords.

Soltari Crusader has shadow and is self pumping.

Telim'Tor is kind of overcosted but fits with your theme.

Note that Crusading Knight really likes Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, which is technically colorless for deck-building purposes, though it's pretty out there to include that combo in a non-black deck.

Also, flanking is better when blocking is going on, so Grappling Hook and Nemesis Mask are worth a look.

Why not Cavalry Master?

I gotta say I do like the look of this deck :)

Leonin Sun Standard looks like it should go in somewhere, maybe instead of Trumpet Blast. Also Knighthood, while on theme, seems to double/triple up on the "giving first strike" front. Serra's Blessing might give some very needed defense to a strong aggro deck like this. I would also suggest finding something to fits in to give you some card draw... red/white not being the best at that. Mentor of the Meek helps (most of your creatures gain "kicker 1 - draw a card"). Finally, I strongly recommend removing Akroma's Blessing and replacing it with Glory which is just all around better (still on theme too).
