Creature — Wall
Defender (This creature can't attack.)
When Ageless Sentinels blocks, it becomes a Bird Giant, and it loses defender. (It's no longer a Wall. This effect doesn't end at end of turn.)

Ageless Sentinels Discussion

My question in regards to this deck is why Arcades, the Strategist instead of another bant commander such as Derevi, Empyrial Tactician? Arcades synergizes with defender cards. Of which you have only 1, which is Dragon Throne of Tarkir.
If you want to use Arcades, I recommend more defender cards such as: Tree of Redemption, Ageless Sentinels, Wall of Blossoms, Colossus of Akros, Golden Guardian Flip, Hornet Nest, Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo, Thing in the Ice Flip, Sylvan Caryatid, Wall of Reverence, Amaranthine Wall, Assault Formation, Carven Caryatid, Dazzling Ramparts, Gomazoa, Guard Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Just to name a few.
Good luck to you!

Casual play Wall-themed deck. Ageless Sentinels is still a wall, I use it as a blocker and cast Glyph of Destruction. Does the second effect of the glyph just not resolve since the targeted wall is no longer a wall, therefore letting me keep my bird?

i dont get into to many white decks, but i love this one. i would get rid of Ajani, Caller of the Pride and replace it with Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Leonin Sun Standard with a Caged Sun and Windbrisk Raptor with Ageless Sentinels

Alright, time for some suggestions.
First of all, things that probably aren't very good here:
Divine Verdict is an ultra weak card. Like, REALLY weak.
Nyx-Fleece Ram: I run lifegain and don't play this. Not a good card.
Jareth, Leonine Titan is not good for this strategy.
Ageless Sentinels is awful. It's a french vanilla 4/4 for 4.
Academy Elite doesn't seem any good. Way too slow, even for a GAAIV deck.
Saltblast: wow that's bad
Ravages of War: Not bad, but also 300 something dollars.
AEther Storm: the pay 4 life effect essentially makes this card completely irrelevant, as somebody will ALWAYS pay the life immediately.
Now, of course, I'm not going to just tell you to cut a bunch of things without adding anything, so here's some suggestions:
More Counterspells: Arcane Denial, Overwhelming Denial, Mental Misstep, Cryptic Command, Dissipate, Void Shatter, Faerie Trickery, Render Silent, and Hinder are all viable options. Of course, I'm not saying you should add ALL of these because that would be insane, but these are all worth considering.
More Hatebears: by hatebears, I mean cards like Ethersworn Canonist, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aven Mindcensor, Hokori, Dust Drinker, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and all the other mean lockdown cards.
Overall, I'd say these are my primary suggestions. If you want to go full stax, there's tons of good decks in that category on the site.
