Angelic Wall Discussion
1 week ago
@ Homelessguy yea your description is fine, im personally not a fan of combos in commander, unless its filled with a bunch of fetch cards or combos with your general, your combos do seem interesting though. if your interested in more one sided board wipes, you can also consider Wave of Reckoning Retribution of the Meek (bury means to sacrafice, meaning those creatures cant be regenerated), Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Fell the Mighty. im not a fan of Angelic Wall or Murmuring Phantasm, as only 4 toughness creatures you may be able to replace them with creatures that offer more toughness or utility, such as Amaranthine Wall, Carven Caryatid, Glacial Wall, Gomazoa, Wakestone Gargoyle, Wall of Glare, or Wall of Mulch. also your deck seems to heavily rely on arcades to be able to swing, maybe consider playing Wakestone Gargoyle, Belligerent Brontodon, and Rolling Stones.

Balzeron: First of all I would like to say that I am honored that my deck has helped inspire your deck building. Secondly, I have some responses to you comments below:
Amaranthine Wall and Hornet Nest are ones that I am still considering. The indestructibility is definitely a nice ability and being able to make a bunch of 1/1 flying death touchers when someone blocks the nest is pretty awesome.
Fog Bank, Guard Gomazoa, and Mindbender Spores are all great cards if you are going a more defensive route. I chose to exclude them because I am a more aggressive list and I wanted big (4 toughness or greater), cheap walls.
My deck personally doesn't want cards like Manor Gargoyle, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Woolly Razorback, Plumeveil, Soulbound Guardians, or Fortified Area as all of these cards either have power greater than 2 or pump my creatures power. I rely heavily on staying at 2 power or less so I can abuse Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa.
The same goes for Doorkeeper. Mill is already hard enough to pull off with a dedicated mill deck in EDH because decks are large and there are 3 opponents. I'd rather play either larger walls or defenders with more relevant abilities.
The banding suggestions are interesting. I had to re-read the rules on banding and I did not realize it also affects attacking creatures. Those could be interesting, I'll have to think about that.
Spidersilk Armor and Tower Defense are awesome with Arcades and may very well end up in my final list. Right now I want to try out Hold the Gates over Spidersilk Armor as it has a higher upside and I already have a number of answers for fliers (Wonder, Angelic Wall, Wall of Tanglecord, Wall of Denial and Arcades himself). Since this list is aggressive, I think vigilance is actually a more impactful keyword in my deck. I already have a pseudo Tower Defense in Defender of the Order. I don't think Defender is particularly better than the Defense, but I have an old foil of it from Legions which I just really want to play.
Thanks for the comments and if you ever want another pair of eyes on your deck, let me know.

Kingtalk Thanks for your cordiality. I appreciate that we can have a polite conversation about a usually-confrontational topic. Personally, if someone does understand the title, the typical reaction is probably going to be "Dude, really?" Vulgarity for the sake of it, in my opinion, leaves a sour taste in the mouth. Call me old-fashioned, but certainly I'm not the only one who has that opinion.
But yeah, Tetsuku is often forgotten in most Arcades lists I see. I'm looking to build it myself; I'll probably base it off of your build. There are very few Bant commanders that REALLY capture what Bant is all about in my eyes, and I think that Arcades comes close to doing that.
I'm wondering what the correct number of walls is for the deck. Certainly you don't want to be running Shield Sphere and Angelic Wall JUST for when Arcades is on the field. They do nothing if he's not, right? other than block. I'm wondering if there is a way to build it where there is a defender "package", 20-30 GOOD defenders that impact the board and also act as a wincon IF you have Arcades. Then the remaining 15-20 cards, after ramp, lands, ect, would be pushing some other strategy, like Blink.
OH! Reveillark should probably be in the list somewhere.

EspioNova I don't think Angelic Page is a good creature, and it doesn't really have any good synergy with angels. If it's 2 mana flyers what you want, you could use Leonin Skyhunter which is a knight, or Aven Squire which gives +1/+1 without tapping, or Angelic Wall which is on theme with angels and will block many things in early game. But really, it would be much better to use those 2 manas in more powerful cards like Wall of Omens, Knight of the White Orchid or Honor of the Pure, or at least in adding more knights like Knight of the Holy Nimbus, Knight of Meadowgrain or Accorder Paladin.

I would recommend Coat of Arms. It would wreck havoc as you have nothing but Slivers. Perhaps drop your land total from 40 to 36 and maybe use Wall of Omens Angelic Wall and Wall of Tanglecord to buy time for the Slivers. Very impressive though A commander deck for roughly $100 and a super low (for Commander) CMC. I'd love to know how this does.
