Notes: This deck has an absurdly low curve, and wants it's ramp in it's 1 slot, if it has much at all. Most good options are going to be a bit expensive if they're any good. Card draw shouldn't be a problem...pay attention to what problems you run into while playing. Are you stalling for a way to push through? Do you need creature removal that isn't board clear? ETC.

I would remove some of the creatures and up the land count to 36 or 37 since I don't think 29 lands is a very good idea.

Panharmonicon would be a good card to add since you will draw 2 with arcades when a defender enters.

High Alert and Assault Formation are good additions to make sure you can still attack even if arcades dies.

Sight of the Scalelords will give your walls a nice bonus to attack and vigilance and Brave the Sands will turn them into even better blockers.

Slaughter the Strong would be another good board wipe to add into the deck.

Angelic Chorus is another good addition so you can gain a nice amount of life whenever one of your walls enters.

@Cloud777 - Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper might be included once I update this deck soon.. I'm not sure about Dragonlord Dromoka though.. It's a bit expensive.. but thanks again for the suggestions!

@vehiclemaster - I had Exsanguinate before in this deck, but i removed it since i rarely use it even before as a finisher.. but should I feel that I rarely win due to lacking finishers, I might add it back or Torment of Hailfire or both.. thanks!

@VEILofAUTUMN - I prefer Swiftfoot Boots over Lightning Greaves for this particular deck, since i have spells that i need to target my creature/s. I also prefer Serra's Blessing and Brave the Sands over Cathar's Shield and Accorder's Shield , since it harder to remove enchantments than artifacts and both enchantments covers my whole board.. Slagwurm Armor though might replace my Ensouled Scimitar .. So far, when I play, I rarely use its activated ability, and Slagwurm Armor has lower cmc to put in the battlefield, which opens for more mana to cast other spells.. Thanks for the suggestions!

I was thinking of building a gwyn deck as well. Here are some cards I think could be cool to run in this deck. Obviously a lot of options.

equipment

enchantments

removal

creatures

combo

Required are Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Surestrike Trident . Then you can just go down the line of creatures attaching all of your power increasing equipment and tapping them for tons of damage. If you have Leonin Shikari and Brave the Sands out, then you can all out attack and then do the tapping out on the endstep before your turn. If you don't have Surestrike Trident but instead have Heartseeker then you can just kill a creature for each one you control.

Along with untap shenanigans you could run some vigilance so that your vehicles can be animated on other turns as blockers. Things like Brave the Sands (on point for flavor), Heliod, God of the Sun and Angelic Field Marshal . Also Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is a great defensive creature to crew your vehicles with.
