Carven Caryatid Discussion

I think you all make good points... the best case scenario I can from the hip think of is a path to an off-brand/mono green Valakut deck.
- Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle
- Primeval Titan
- Azusa, Lost but Seeking
- Dryad of the Ilysian Grove
I dont think that this would be any better or more reliable than already established Titan-Shift though.... but its certainly neat to think about!

lagotripha Oh yeah, I totally forgot that Wall of Blossoms had been printed. That one should be included for sure, probably instead of Carven Caryatid and maybe also some number of Wall of Omens or Axebane Guardian . Vesperlark is good, but I am a bit concerned that it is not a wall. Overgrown Battlement is such a powerful ramp card, and I really want to minimize the number of creatures that are not walls to utilize it. Spellskite is included because it can counter some decks and works really well with Assault Formation , but Vesperlark only has one toughness. It does return a wall though, given that there is one in the graveyard.

Now that I have time
Filigree Familiar Seems off plan. I don't think it does what you think.
Same with Wirewood Savage
Cantrip/Tutor Creatures not in the deck
I particularly Recommend Recruiter since it is an instant win with aluren if you run like 1 more piece.

Junktroller provides utility with graveyard hate against opponents and allows you to return cards to your library
Bishop of Rebirth is Sun Titan without the etb and only for creatures but may be worth it
Eladamri's Call is a good creature tutor
Aura Shards is too good to not run in a creature heavy deck
Spidersilk Armor is an anthem to toughness and helps cover the weakness to flying
Smothering Tithe is pretty pretty efficient in a multiplayer game
Suggestions are based off my own Arcades Deck: the Defenders

Vlasiax I like that call. The signets seemed a little clunky and inferior to the talisman counterparts already. Decided to swap in Carven Caryatid for some more thinning/draw. Also went with Drift of Phantasms because that card should really have been in the original build. The transmute ability can fetch just about any piece in the deck.

I agree, K4m4r0. I would be very unlikely to remove the 0/4 cantrips in my deck, they are both fantastic. I was simply referring to those as a minimum threshold which cards like Carven Caryatid and Jungle Barrier don't quite meet, hence are not included in the deck.

Fog Bank , Guardians of Meletis , Wall of Mist , Wall of Roots , and Wall of Vines are all lackluster defenders. Jungle Barrier , Jeskai Barricade , Sylvan Caryatid , and Carven Caryatid would be better choices in my opinion.
