I would take out the Assault Formation (I think Kobolds lend better to mono red), the Outnumber and the Massive Raid's. Sure you get a lot of creatures but these are strictly win more cards and shouldn't be here in their place the pieces and mentioned and stuff like Lightning Bolt for removal and more damage output.

No problem! I have to say though, Assault Formation is genius in this deck. It basically turns Kynaios and Tiro into an 8/8 for four mana which is insane.

This is an awesome deck; very nice! I'd probably add Assault Formation for some redundancy with Doran. Great thing about this card is that it also allows you to boost toughness of your creatures in a pinch. Also, I'd consider swapping Wrath of God and Damnation for Fell the Mighty and Wave of Reckoning. In many situations, these wipes will just wipe the opponents' creatures while you get to keep yours.

In case you need any more ideas, look over my Doran deck; hope it helps.

I think I'd do tri-color but only a small amount of red


4x Axebane Guardian 2x Doorkeeper 3-4x Drift of Phantasms (to fetch axebane or freed from the real) 4x Fog Bank 2x Sylvan Caryatid 4x Gatecreeper Vine (fetch lands) 2x Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip 4x Overgrown Battlement 2x Vent Sentinel


2-3x Genesis Wave 2-3x Banefire


2-3x Assault Formation 3-4x Freed from the Real


2x Meekstone

But thats just a rough idea. Sorry I couldn't reply sooner, been busy the last few days. Let me know if this helps.

Classiest on Bant Defender - For Those Who Like Long Turns

N4kk1: Cancel is from Amonkhet. According to Amonkhet is allowed in modern and Cancel is not on the list of banned cards from what I saw. So, I don't see why it would be unplayable.

I like Uncage the Menagerie. I can use it to get Kiora's Follower and Wall of Omens, Axebane Guardian (which is essential to the deck) and Geist of the Archives and if I don't have a better search I can get Colossus of Akros. Lots of ways to make sure I get supporting creatures for my board. I don't remember all the searches in this game so it could be poor one just to get 1-2 creatures.

I dunno if I need 4 Assault Formations. The deck is worthless in hand if I already have it on the battlefield and this deck draws very frequently.

I do think Mana Leak is a good idea, I forgot about it completely

Cancel is.not.modern.playable.

Uncage the Menagerie Seems just very bad

Maybe throw few Mana Leaks in for early game counters

And i think that deck like wants 4 of Assault Formation
